Same thing.  smile  "published" to me means "in hard copy form that resembles a book".  The copyright notice would be printed right into the book, I would think.

My original discussion of having it produced in hardcover was to use a small-run printing service.  There was never going to be a "publisher" involved (except me), because no publisher will touch this book.

If you're willing to produce the book, then that makes the project more feasible.  You should contact me by email so that we can discuss details.  I should say that 5000 copies is WAY more than I would ever figure on needing.  I was looking at having about 100 or so printed.  (Of course, I have no actual idea about demand; I was going by what I could conceivably afford.)

Thank you for your offer, whether or not it turns out to be doable.

Eric,just to say thanks for the pleasure of reading your stories.  So far I have read The Favour and Arifacts1.  Both good reads with chatacters that became well developed and drove the story lines along at a good clip.
Thought you would lke to know that due to the friendly nature of your download system, I have downloaded Ron's Journey, converted it to PDF and it now sits on my e-reader.  Go anywhere at the drop o a hat.  Cheers!!

Um.... "The Favour"?

I don't have a story by this name... and certainly wouldn't, as I am neither British, nor Canadian, so I'd spell it right, without the "u".

Artifacts I is mine, though...

Anyway, glad you're enjoying my work.

On the subject of publishing this, it would indeed be impossible in the story's current form. However, you might consider editing the story to reduce the amount and explicity (is that a word?) of the sex. In the, say, post-CAMP part of the book this would be quite simple since (for as I can see) it only serves to strengthen emotional connections between characters, which is something that could very well be done differently (this is in no way critisism). In the first part though, it has a far bigger role, and therefore would be far harder to replace. But since you, clearly, are a talented writer (judging from the enormous amounts of positive reactions) I think you could find a way to do so without compromising on the integrity of the story.

It is quite clear that the storyline is the prevailing source of compliments, not the sex. I have never, neither here or on any other site, seen people write complaints about the fact that the amount of sex is significantly reduced in later parts of the story, even absent in some.

Having said all that, i would completely understand if you would not want to do something like this. It is, of course, your story and if you don't feel it should be altered, then simply don't.

I have a policy of never rewriting something that is already published.  I've already broken this rule at least once on CAMP, by changing a character name.  To do what you suggest would compel me (by my nature) to literally rewrite the entire book from scratch, because I feel that the thing is flawed in dozens of ways.

No, if CAMP ever appears in hardcover, it will be self-published, so that the integrity of the story can remain intact.

If it ever becomes available at anything resembling reasonable cost(say under $40 or so)especially if both CAMP & Sibling are printed together post something here & I will be Very happy to buy a copy.

I aint a cop or religious freak or wanting to buy it for anything but my own enjoyment.

Well, let me dispel that rumor before it ever gets started:  CAMP: Ron's Journey and CAMP: Sibling Rivalry could not be printed together.  The book would be too large.  Most short-run publishers have page count limits around 700 or 800 pages.  CRJ alone is 600 pages, and THAT is only possible by making the font and margins smaller.  Were CRJ to be printed in the same format as a lot of the books that LAoW has lying around, which run about 270 words per page, it would be nearly 1200 pages long.

And if CRJ ever does appear in hardcover, its price will probably be right at $40.

But don't hold your breath for ever seeing it.

Glad you enjoyed it.  I hope you like its sequel, and my other work, just as much.

Thanks for the feedback!

You are definitely one of, if not my favorite erotic authors. It is, in my mind a very close tie between yourself, and "Asexual Pseudonym" from XNXX, author of the novels 'Nascent' and 'Beauty'.

It truly is a shame that books of this kind are so unlikely to find publishers, and I would have certainly purchased myself a copy long ago.

Thanks again,

S.

Does anybody have copies of these stories - they don't seem to be on XNXX anymore.

Thanks

I am really enjoying working my way through your stories.  Have read most of CAMP now and read a few of the shorter other ones.

Thanks for all your efforts

Just to let you know, you have already caused me to lose several hours.  I am hooked on the story and can't wait for the next chapter.  Great job writing.  Well thought out organization etc.  (so far at least)

Finally read through this great series and again im amazed at your incredible story writing, just one detail, Lt. Shelly a little time after her introduction became Shelley strangely. Is this a new character or is she the same?

I had just recently finished CRJ for the 3rd time. I keep coming across things I had forgotten about.  I am now 50% through CSR. I have it saved to my Kindle and read it through out the day at work. Sometimes its hard to put it down.  These 2 novels will remain a part of my library.

Finished CSR today. The final battle was something !!!!!! Would have made a great movie scene with great special effects. The action in the series kept me coming back for more.  Great work on this.

Glad you enjoyed it.  Battles are always something of a challenge, as they are... largely a visual thing.

I thought you did a good job of the battles in pretty much all of your stories.

I read CRJ years ago, so first a thank you for the story that got my reading habit started.  With this new mobile age making picking up and reading a bit so much easier, I have come back and reread through CRJ, followed by CSR. Then just started my way down the list of titles that you have made available for reading.  I've finished/caught up on all that I was able to find of yours and this title still remains at the top of my personal favorites. 

Well done on this and all of your other work. And again, thank you for sharing.

This was the very first story I read online way back when I was about 14 or so. I loved it, at one point I even printed the whole thing out and put it in a big three ring binder so I could read it when another family member wanted the computer. It got me started reading unpublished online stories, a habit that continues to this day. When last I checked, the sequel was only two or three chapters, so I am very much looking forward to re-reading them both. Thank you for writing Eric, please keep up the good work.

Oops. so i proposed a test to my self. can you read 3 paragraphs of one of Mr. Storms stories and determine if an average reader would stop reading or be hooked. So I opened up chapter 1 of the first story I read of his... and forgot all about the test i gave my self. Eric, your stories completely immerse me, congratulations on removing my reality and replacing it with one of your own.
