Hey, I never told him to read it straight through!  If he'd been with me in the beginning, he'd have taken four and a half years to read it...  smile

Eric i have been thinking about what you said about having CAMP: Ron's Journey Published, if you were to self publish and had someone that could print the book would it make it cheaper because i am willing to offer my services to have it printed and bound, up to the first 5000 copies for free.

I also have another Question.

do you have to have it published or can it just be printed in book form with a copyright sticker on it?

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.

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)

Hell of a story.  Well written.  I would have been nice in the epilogue to have made mention of Dawn or at least Nathan.  Other that that I wonder how much of the general story is a disturbing look into the future.

Nathan gets his own damned book.  He doesn't need an epilogue.

Very nice story. Well Written.  Was shocked that Michelle had been made to be made out to be a bad girl and enemy.  I am glad to see that nothing is outside your realm of thinking that anything is possible in the realm of stories.  Thanks and keep the good work going

I know you get a bit flustered when you think about how you lacked in your technique with this story; however, I keep reading this story over and over. You've done a magnificent job and made me a follower. Each time I encounter a person that has an interest in reading the same stuff I do, I always recommend them here. So thank you again.
