Stone Sorceress - Changes with a Lot Less Me

Some of you may have noticed that I'm no longer writing Stone Sorceress anymore, even though I'm one of the two original creators (me & Dez).

Basically, what happened is that the economics couldn't support us continuing to do SS the way we were, and Dez -- who was running the site stuff as well -- needed the work more than I did.  That's still true.

The plan was that he would work on expanding existing scenes until either: 1) the series grew to where we could both afford to work again, or 2) he moved on to other things and handed the series back to me to do something different with.

Probably, when or if that second thing happens -- and it still might -- I would be doing a prose-story-based continuation of SS with voice, illustrations, and animations, as we/I can afford it.  (Not a fully animated series, I admit, but what I can both do and afford.)

Recently, though, Dez has started to do little "micro stories" rather than expansions, which was okay, because you do what you gotta do to make ends meet.  And now that seems to have expanded to a big "final story" that (Surprise!  😢) is being written by someone who is not me.

And, at this point, the plot for that story includes some non-con (non-consensual) plans for Sara that... Well, this is what I think Stone Sorceress is about -- the premise that I created the storylines (and co-created the series) around:

Light-Hearted, Sex-Positive Adventures (with monsters)

...Adventures featuring a heroine who had agency, optimism, humor, and power (more than enough to fuck those nasty monsters out of existence).  And a key element of all that is consent.  Sara is always consenting to her sexual encounters (even if they might seem dangerous or scary to other people).  Consent is something all of us should do in our sex, all the time.  Consent is part of her key powers.

The current story, planned and begun (and executed) without me, violates the premises and precepts in this two paragraphs above.

I've asked them to either stop or to change the storyline -- and suggested a possible "fix" which maintain's Sara's agency and consent.

But, at this point, it does not look like the current crew are going to either stop or change their plans.  They're going to continue with this non-con storyline I don't approve of.

And do something sexual to Sara against her will.

(They'll also also ignore her powers and history and what she's been able to do or deal with in the past.)

This article pretty much explains my point-of-view about the whole "final" storyline:

So, if that's how it shakes out, naturally, I won't be participating.

And if it really is the "final storyline" for my co-creator, I'll see what I can do to pick up the pieces afterward -- if there is one.

Is it bitterly ironic that they're doing all this without my consent?  Yeah.  Or maybe just tragic.

Stone Sorceress - Ongoing Erotic Adventures!

I am so terrible at blogging!  Life is so busy and I always get distracted and forget!  Only when I got a new comment (recently) on my Naked Elf Girls Omnibus did I realize that I hadn't posted anything here in ages!  Yow!

I hadn't even mentioned THE STONE SORCERESS(tm) -- the sexy animated stories that I've been working on with my friend Dezmondel for over 2 years how!  It's my main adult-fantasy work, and I've neglected telling you about it! I am so sorry!  (Or stupid.  Maybe just stupid?  ;-)  )

Go to STONESORCERESS.COM.  It will take you to our Patreon page where you can find out all about what I've been up to recently -- and for the forseeable future.

And, if you like what you see, join our Patreon and throw a few bucks our way.  For less than the cost of a cup of Starbucks coffee, you can help keep me and Dez and our voice actors (Star & Doug) and associates working on the adult fantasy entertainment we all crave.

Thanks!

And as Sara Slane, our nympho heroine (pictured at top), would say:

"Love, Kisses, and a Whole Lot More!"

Naked Elf Girls - OUT NOW! (Buy 'Em!)

You know what they say about the best laid plans?  Well, the best laid plans of authors and publishers oft go astray, too -- especially when the plan is to get a bunch of Naked Elf Girls laid!  So, sorry this update took so long, but the good news is...

THE NAKED ELF GIRLS BOOKS ARE OUT!

They're available for purchase at Amazon, Smashwords, and DriveThruFiction.  You can find them by searching for me, Didi Solomon, or you can click the links below and go directly to the vendor of your choice to buy them.

Buy Naked Elf Girls on Amazon!
Buy Naked Elf Girls on Smashwords!
Buy Naked Elf Girls on DriveThruFiction!

You can find direct links to each individual book on my Buy Books page here.

You may be able to find the Naked Elf Girls on other sites, too (though Apple apparently has some issues with some of the books), but please find a real place to buy them instead of waiting for the pirates to post them somewhere for "free."

You know what free means in this context?  Free means that neither my publisher nor I get one red cent from what you're reading!  And the only way I'm going to be able to write more books in the Naked Elf Girls series is if I gain a little treasure on this set.

So, support this author (and other independent authors) and buy our books rather than supporting the pirates.  'Cause, you know, despite all those romantic movies, pirates were really just crooks.

Okay, enough about pirates, because this is a really happy day when you can Buy My Books!  Do it!  (You know you want to.)  Then write me and tell me what you think.

Have fun!

Final Naked Elf Girls Editorial Work - Publishing Imminent!

I am very excited to report that my Naked Elf Girls books are now in the final stages of the editorial process -- which means they're nearly ready to be published!

My artist, Steve Sullivan, has the covers up on his Deviant Art page, if you haven't already seen them on their own page here.  (I think the images might be slightly larger on DA.)

In any case, with art done and words done and editorial nearly done, what else is left?

Publication and reading, of course!  Keep watching this blog for more updates.

I can hardly wait!

Holy Cow, This Is Really Happening!


I've got the books done, my artist (Steve Sullivan) has finished the covers, and now we've got an actual page/blog going, too!

Guess that means my Naked Elf Girls books are really going to be coming out.

Keep your eyes glued to this space for future updates!  And please send along your comments or suggestions.

Thanks!
