New POW Chapter Posted

Written by Kodi Wolf at 3:25 PM

I know it's been 18 years since I last updated this story (April 6, 2004), but I've finally added Chapter 5 to Prisoner of War. It's just over 13,000 words.

I've also revised the previously posted chapters based on feedback and my own issues with the old version (like not mentioning where the bathroom is in Luce's cell :) ). There's about 700 extra/new words, most of which are in Chapter 1, but I don't think the changes/fixes are anything that requires rereading in order to understand what happens in the new chapter, so don't worry about rereading if you don't want to.

I just wanted to add that I never abandoned this story, even though it probably seemed like it. I've been working on it off and on over the years, trying to figure out how to continue it and eventually finish the story.

I've actually made pretty good progress on that front the past few years. In addition to getting Chapter 5 done and posted, Chapter 6 is quite close to being done and I've got a bunch more scenes written for the rest of the story, which I've outlined to the end, so I at least know where it's going now (this started out as a one-shot of the first chapter back in 2000, so I've had to do a lot of brainstorming to fill in the blanks).

Anyway, I hope you like it. :)

New ABP Chapter Posted

Written by Kodi Wolf at 5:18 AM

I've added Day 27 to A Bondage Primer. It's just over 14,000 words long.

I'm currently dealing with multiple health issues, so that's all I've got right now. But hopefully, I'll be able to post more soon.

New ABP Chapter Posted

Written by Kodi Wolf at 9:10 AM

I've added Day 26 to A Bondage Primer. It came in at just over 28,000 words.

And I'm sorry it's taken me so long to post again. Part of it was just me getting stuck on multiple things (for ABP, it was transitions between scenes that gave me the most trouble, for Xena: Warrior Slave, I'm still stuck on rewrites for one scene in Part 3). But I've also been posting previews over on my Patreon, which kind of let me relax a little where posting updates to this site was concerned.

It also gave me a lot of motivation to get more scenes done enough to let others preview them. I was originally going to just post bits of Day 26 (and later Days) for my Patrons to check out, but then as I got more done, I realized I was really close to finishing, so I decided to wait so I could post the whole Day.

I still plan to post previews of ABP over there, along with other stories (my Patrons currently have access to the first 8 chapters of the revised version of Lights of Life and Parts 6-10 of X:WS), but I'm happy with how this turned out, since the whole point is to get me to write more.

My current plans are to try to get the rewrites for X:WS finished before the end of the year, so I can post the new chapters for everyone to read, though at the rate I'm going, I might finish Part 11 before I finish the edits to the earlier chapters.

I also have a new Xena fanfic that's nearing completion, but we'll see how that goes. (Every time I think it's almost done, they just keep having more sex. :) It's already at almost 20,000 words ).

Anyway, I hope everyone is staying safe. Take care.

New ABP Chapters Posted

Written by Kodi Wolf at 3:23 AM

I've added Days 24-25 to A Bondage Primer. Day 24 is pretty short, but Day 25 turned into a frickin' monster. Between the two of them, they're over 52,000 words. That's about a novel's worth, which is why it took me so long to edit.

But I'm really happy to be posting so much again so soon after posting almost the same amount back in December. Posting 100,000 words in four months feels awesome. I don't know if I can keep this up, but I'm certainly going to try.

Apparently, my goals of getting my outlined scenes turned into story text and editing them have been working. Having my Patrons on board has also been incredibly inspiring and has helped me to stick with those goals, despite everything that's been going on right now, so thank you. You guys are awesome. :)

I'm not sure what I'll be posting next or when, since I have several different stories close to being ready to post or update. It all depends on where my muse wants to play the most.

And I know it's a little crazy right now, but I hope everyone is doing okay and that maybe my stories can take your mind off our current reality, at least for a little while. Stay safe.

I Have a Patreon Account

Written by Kodi Wolf at 10:44 PM

At the request of one of my Site Members, I opened a Patreon account over the Christmas holiday. They wanted to be able to support me beyond the one-time membership fee and while I was surprised, I wasn't going to turn down the offer.

I had actually been considering doing something like this for over a year, since it costs me at a bare minimum $900/yr to maintain this site (monthly web hosting, domain name registration, filing taxes, etc.), never mind wanting to improve my writing by taking courses or buying books or software, or needing to update that software, or even get compensation for the time I spend writing. Adding in those other costs, the amount is closer to $1,200/yr.

The reason I didn't do it sooner was because I felt weird about asking my readers for more money. They'd already paid their membership fee and I didn't feel right asking for more.

But getting that request and knowing my wife is set to retire in about 5 years and multiplying that ~$1,000/yr x 5 years... That's $5,000 that won't be in our savings when it comes time for her to retire and I was seriously considering either having to take my site down or put more time and energy into marketing than I was my writing. Given my social phobia and the more I learned about marketing, I wasn't too hyped up about that course of action.

The simple fact is that I'd rather write than market and if my costs are covered, then I don't have to spend my time on marketing. That stressor is removed. Instead of writing being this thing I do that costs money, it becomes this thing I do that makes me happy. That thought was really freeing and since I know my readers want to read more story content from me, I considered that a win-win.

I don't have to make money from my writing. I just need it to not cost me any money.

Anyway, when I let the person know I'd created the account, I was expecting maybe $1/mo or possibly even $5/mo, but they signed up at $20/mo, which just blew me away. I just about cried when I saw that amount.

Then I sent an email to my members to let them know that this option was available, though I didn't expect to get more than 1 or 2 signups, if any.

Instead, I got 6 new pledges, including another $20 pledge and a $15 one, with the rest at $5 and $1.

All I can say is, "Thank you. Thank you so much. You have no idea what this means to me."

My goal is to hit about $75/mo (though it's set for $100 because Patreon does take out some fees). That would cover my basic costs so that writing was no longer a financial drain. It wouldn't be actual profit, but I'm okay with that.

Just knowing there are people that eager for my next post is a huge motivator. That in conjunction with my goals for 2020 has helped me to already complete quite a few new scenes for A Bondage Primer, Lights of Life, The Vampire Hunter (which I haven't worked on in ages), and Xena: Warrior Slave (I'm so close to having some new chapters ready for you I can hardly wait).

I'm currently at $69 in monthly pledges (as an erotica writer, please <insert joke here>), but I'm hoping maybe a few more people will see this and will want to help me out.

Seriously, even $1/mo would be amazing. It would let me know you want to read my stories as fast as I can write them.

Also, even though I don't have tiers on my Patreon, I am offering a kind of bonus, which works particularly well if you can't afford to pay for a $10 Story Membership all at once or a $50 Site Membership.

If you sign up for $1/mo, then every 10 months, you'll receive a new Story Membership to the story of your choice (or at $2/mo, it would be every 5 months, etc.). Once you've reached $50, I'll convert your Story Memberships into a Site Membership, so you can access everything (including A Bondage Primer, which isn't available as a stand-alone Story Membership).

If you're already a Story Member, the same applies. Just let me know which story you'd like added to your account next when you reach the $10 mark. Or if you're a Site Member, you'll get a free Story Membership you can gift to someone (or Site Membership if you wait until you hit the $50 mark).

And to those of you who've already pledged your support, thank you again. I mean it. I'm thinking of you when I set my keyboard in my lap and start writing. I want to get my work finished faster because of you, so you can read it.

I'll even stop requesting feedback because you've basically already told me you love my work by supporting me so I can focus on just writing.

Anyway, I just wanted to publicly say thank you to my Patrons. You guys are amazing. :)
