Base Domme (Book-4)
Book-3 of the Physicist Dominatrix will be released in a few hours time, I uploaded the last revision just an hour ago, and it is a good feeling to finally get it 'done' or at least as done as I can make it.
I read in another blog somewhere about the 'Cult Of Done' (worth googling) and the thing that struck me strongest was 'Perfect gets in the way of a Done' - or something similar.
What does this mean? For me, it means I could easily spend a year editing and re-editing a book and never get it released as I'm looking for a perfect. Each time I come back and do some editing, I get side tracked into something... and time marches on without any apparent progress.
So. After my protracted illness, I achieved a 'done' with book-3, Job Offer and I'm happy. It was fun to write and now, being part of a series, it is fun to use as the stepping stone into the next book. I know I'll edit it again in the coming months and I'll release it again, but for now it is, you guessed it, done.
The Adventure Continues
The Physicist Dominatrix books have all been about BDSM Sessions in a dungeon with just a tiny amount of side story. Book-3 Job Offer snuck some actual side-story in by exploring how Mistress Tish was created from the uber-geek Loretta. Then, later, the story really kicked in with her Job Interview (and what a pleasure that was).
Now the adventure continues and the actual story line takes shape. All of a sudden Mistress Tish is now working as a theoretical physicist in a lab full time and her special skills are used only occasionally.
Yikes! We have an actual story line to follow. Not just one big thrash-fest in the dungeon for our leather clad protagonist.
So where is this going you ask? The answer is of course 'as Mistress wishes.'
'Base Domme' exists in a mostly written form (as opposed to rough ideas in my head... it exists). Its start needs a little work as does when she <spoilers> as well as the way her <spoilers> is located and arranged.
I have a sequel to this book also which I am thinking of merging as it is and ideal addition as it leads to a fine climax (sigh).
So, when will it be released? I'm thinking maybe around July. I haven't got a cover designed yet, annoyingly, so that will need to be addressed soon. I think I know pretty much where this is heading and how far. 'Les... you reading this... email me!'
More news as it happens. I'll attempt to release some snippets from this new book soon.
