Release date!

True: Ethan” will be out August 29th, 2017! W00t!

Good news, bad news, and “I’m not sure how you’ll take this” news.

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

Bad news first: All Romance eBooks up and shut its doors. What’s up with that? Those who got emails letting them know of the closure only got three days notice, so I genuinely hope that you were able to download your libraries. I’ve lost my books before and I know it sucks. Luckily this time I had my books downloaded and backed up, as I did not get a notice of closure. I did get an offer to buy advertising space from ARe less than a week before they closed, so that was mad sketchy. And really sad, given what a strong and trustworthy part of the community they had been. It’s also going to be a weird transition for me because most of my sales didn’t come from Amazon, they came from ARe, which I’m told is not the norm.

But good news! I’m writing again! Just a few hundred words a day, but that’s the pace I was going at when I wrote Paul’s Dream, so I choose to take it as a good sign. Paul’s Dream is probably my most thoughtful and intricately written novel.

Other news: I mentioned in a previous blog that sometimes I hop onto other sites with a different name and post stories to stretch my writing muscles and relieve some pressure. Also not to be judged. I like really weird things. There’s definitely a tentacle story somewhere in my future. The far future. My immediate future features a few comics. Aaaand those comics are in the FMG genre. FMG stands for “Female Muscle Growth,” as opposed to “Male Muscle Growth” (MMG), which is what I’m best known for.

FMG has a lot of similar tropes to MMG, as well as a lot of tropes specific to the genre. I’ll probably get into those in another blog, because that is a LONG post.

Anyway, when I write FMG I do it under the name Arie, and I used to post exclusively on a site called Brawna.org. Which is down now. (Oh internet! Why do you keep disappearing on me!?) But I recently moved what I had written to a deviantArt account, and why yes, you can totally read my stuff! Thank you so much for asking!  XD

Here’s the link: http://ariecle.deviantart.com/gallery/

And here’s the link to one I wrote as fanfic http://mrgreyman.deviantart.com/art/Wish-Fulfullment-fc2-by-Arie-308254101 to this: http://ariecle.deviantart.com/art/Very-Short-Scene-Wish-Fulfillment-274638721

I haven’t quite figured out the logistics, but I’ll be making room on my site for the Arie McBride stuff soon. It’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s okay. FMG is ridiculous. But almost every story I write is ridiculous. I have a character who makes a room full of people orgasm by snapping his fingers, and that’s from my “thoughtful and intricately written” novel. Ridiculous is my wheelhouse and I love it. So I hope that at least you’ll be entertained as you watch me jump from genre to genre.  🙂

 

 

 

Out of Print Blues

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

So I finally updated my website to indicate which books are out of print. I’d been avoiding it because it’s, well, depressing. On the upside, my health is a little better, and I’m taking that as a good sign that my little orphans will have new homes soon. 🙂

Just Perfect is going out of print

Monday, January 25th, 2016

My novella, Just Perfect, will be officially out of print on January 31st, 2016. As of now, it’s still available from most e-book sellers, but on the 31st it’ll start disappearing from stores at varying speeds.

I’m sorry for the short notice but I myself just found out yesterday.

Just Perfect was always meant to be episode 1 of a 4-part series. I think the best course of action now is to complete the series first before I even put part 1 out there again.

I know JP is one of my more unorthodox stories (which is saying a lot, considering what I write), so thank you to everyone who read and enjoyed it. Hopefully when the set is complete, you’ll enjoy it even more. 🙂

Huh.

So I went to fix the Jascian error I mentioned in my previous post, and its Goodreads entry is… gone. I don’t suppose anyone knows what might have happened to it? I wasn’t the one who first created the entry, so I don’t know whether I should create a new one, especially since it’s unfinished and might violate the ever-changing librarian rules to do so.

I liiiiive.

Running out of battery life so I’m just gonna copy/paste the message I posted to my newsletter ~~

Heya peeps. Currently in the ER and getting the side-eye from a tech for using my cell, I guess? I’m not sure if tthat’s still a no but I’ll probably find out if my battery doesn’t run out first.

At any rate, it doesn’t look like I’m getting out tonight or even later today, so the new chapter of OoUMK will be a little late. I have a word processing program on my phone, but left both my charger and my notebook at home. >.< I don't know if this message will get to you, but I hope it does. I will def type up/upload thecchapter as soon as I can. If you could do me a solid and post a mmessage on your social media portals letting people know why I'm late with an update less than three months in, I'd really appreciate it.  I'll try to post a message on my blog if the God of Battery Life is merciful. Also, I have posts queued on tu m blr so please don't be surprised when the messages automatically post to tumblr and twitter. There was some confusion about that last time I was in the hospital. 🙂 Sorry about this, peeps.
