As You Wish....

Apologies to everyone for my sudden disappearance, I'm in the midst of two big weddings in my immediate family and spent all last month helping get things ready. The second wedding is coming up this weekend, thankfully, so that should be the end of all the showers and all that.

I have been making new captions in the meantime, however, and will be posting more this week. And working on a few new ebooks, which I want to talk more about in a bit.

But first, today's captions. I started writing a new ebook a few months ago about a genie and bad wishing. These captions are just the first opening chapter and a few pictures that inspired me. The full story is over 6,000 words long so far, so this is just a teaser of sorts.



The rest of the story moves involves wish twisting, breast enlargement, and all those other sorts of things I enjoy writing about. I'm hoping to finish it soon.

Also on the topic of ebooks, I was recently emailing writer Holly Sharp (http://www.tgstorytime.com/viewuser.php?uid=2981), whose stories were a major inspiration for my old The Black Widow Club transgender captions, by the way.

Our conversation inspired me to compile some of my favorite captions together in a new ebook, along with some unpublished texts that I never found a suitable picture for. Right now this is about 12,000 words long, but might end up longer or shorter once I finish editing it.

I'm a bit worried people would be annoyed if my next ebook turns out to just be a collection of mostly previously-posted captions, so I wanted to let you all know and get some feedback from you. I've read books that are just collections of vignettes (which are exactly what my captions are, tiny scenes or one act stories), but I've never tried publishing anything like flash fiction before.

So please, let me know what you think of the idea, if you hate it or not. I'm so out of practice with formatting for Amazon/Smashwords, that I sort of need to publish something just to remind myself how to publish ebooks again.

Office Peons



I've spent days searching for a fitting image or two for this, but have only found one that fits. Sadly, it's too small to fit my text, so I've once again been forced to post the caption as a short story instead.

I'm quite happy with this one, nonetheless. As usual, hit the READ MORE link to open the full page and read the story. And please let me know what you think!

P.S. I've finally gotten around to updating my Blog List on the right side of the blog with new websites I visit. If you know of a good blog or tumblr that fits the general theme of Degraded Damsels, and that I might be interested in adding, please mention it in the comments below.

Stage Antics

My output seems to be rather higher this past week; I think I've posted more caps in one week than in any similar period in the last year or more. Sorry about not being more productive in the past, my muse is a bit of a random thing lately. For some reason its really hitting me just now.

As I said a few days ago, I've got a few captions, with no good pictures to really fit them. Or, at least, not enough pictures to use all the text. Today's short story is one of these.

A warning, it does end rather abruptly, as it was already too long for a caption, but I think the underlying twist is obvious enough, even without a proper 'punchline' to drive it home.

As usual, click the Read More to see the caption after the break.

P.S. Also, I am for some reason not being informed when I get new comments on these latest posts. I'm not sure why, as I haven't changed any settings. It may be a Gmail bug, or something new with Blogger. So if I don't respond to a question, please forgive me.

And so, a huge 'Thank You' to all who have been commenting on these posts!

Branded

Greetings! Another day, another caption! This one was also written back in February, finally finished and attached to a picture. Quick, simple idea here, but the sort of thing I find fun.


Also, some quick news: Blogger is telling me that some sort of pop-up warning about cookies is supposed to appear when people visit the blog, due to legal changes in the EU.

So please, if anyone can see the warning/disclaimer, let me know in the comments below. I think the blog will get locked or something if the disclaimer doesn't appear, if I'm reading the weird notice Google sent me correctly. And I'll have to make some changes to my widgets or something, as that can interfere with the disclaimer. I think.

Psyched 5 - Tabloid Tart

Here's a caption I wrote way back in early February, that I think was inspired by one of Duckboy's captions (he's having some real-life problems of his own, it sounds like), though I can't remember specifically which one or if it was a more generalized inspiration.

Either way, I did a bit of rewriting to make it fit my Psyched series, and I'm quite happy with how it came out.


Please let me know what you think of the new caption. And yes, more captions to come this week, so check back soon.
