Love You, WordPress

Sorry about that last deleted post. I’m trying to clean up some stuff on the website, and sometimes I forget that I have no heckin’ idea what I’m doing.

Episode 15 is out with the beta team. If everything goes to plan*, we’ll have a new release within the next week or two.

Here’s the episode description:
Episode 15: In high demand as a performer and stalking expert, Sophie navigates a busy, pleasure-packed week at Fantasy Heights. Unexpected visitors shake things up between Sophie and Ben. Thomas, meanwhile, turns his creative problem-solving skills onto a personal problem.

Here’s what I bought myself as a treat for finishing the episode. Good stuff.

Otherwise, I have a terribly exciting day planned, including laundry, kitchen cleaning, watching all three Star Trek movies just because I can, and also working on something new and fun for the email subscribers. That’s a super hush-hush secret I’m not supposed to talk about. So subtle.

*Why do I say that shit out loud? It’s like I’m just asking for it, right?

Monday Stuff

I’m on “vacation” from the day job this week. Note the ironic-usage quotes around “vacation”. I’m spending the week getting Episode 15 ready for the beta team.

That means we have until Friday for new (and old) beta readers to sign up using the new form. We’ve still got plenty of room at the table, so don’t be shy.

Now, who wants to write this episode’s promo copy for me? Anyone? Anyone?

*crickets*

Come One, Come All

by megsilver on June 30, 2017

We’re gearing up for the next round of beta, and we sure could use some more eyes on these episodes.

I’ve reopened a new beta-team signup form. Even if you have signed up in the past, or even worked with the beta team before, please sign up again now to let me know you’re still interested in helping out. (Worse, Emma handled a lot of the beta team interaction and she doesn’t have access to some of her old emails anymore, so it’s very possible some older information is just… gone.)

Here’s some stuff you should know before signing up:

  • I’m kind of a dick: I take forever to produce an episode, and then leave the beta team limited time (read: ZERO TIME) to read and give feedback.
  • The beta team uses Google Docs. It’s not difficult to figure out how to comment on stuff, but some prior experience might come in handy. And be warned: this is probably easiest on PC or laptop. If you only have a mobile phone, beta-reading might be extra tough.
  • Right now, the Fantasy Heights series is without a content editor. I do work with a proofreader, but we never catch everything. Part of the beta-reading deal on this team includes proofreading, which requires a bit more effort than just straight-up reading an episode and telling us what you think.
  • Beta-reading means you have to be cool with questioning story/plot choices and providing both positive and negative feedback. Beta readers can’t worry about hurting anyone’s feelings. First of all, I don’t have any. Second, I take feedback seriously, but not personally.
  • Beta versions are copyright protected AND confidential. Beta-reader feedback is also treated as confidential. I don’t share feedback from one beta-reader to another without first seeking permission.

Caveats done. If you’re interested in joining the beta team, get thee to the signup form. Bring friends, too!

Capitalize On My Mistake, Anyone?

by megsilver on June 27, 2017

So I’m still chugging along with Season One cover changes. Thank God I ordered a proof copy of the Season One book, because I completely forgot things like trim size and some fade masking before I reassembled the cover and re-uploaded.

Oops.

Anyway, this means I have a free print proof (with a slightly wonky-looking cover) that I will sign and send off to the first person who emails me their name and street address. Domestic US only, please.

Email address can be found on contact page.

Edit-To-Add: Aaaaaand it’s gone, already 🙂

Quick Trick

If you push the little Nook button over on the right sideboard, you’ll see the rest of the Season One cover updates. Help Wanted‘s cover hasn’t updated yet, but should within the next 24 hours.

(Sorry, I can’t take time away from wordcount to update the covers on the site, yet. But yes, the covers really are changing, and this is what they look like. It’s NOT new content.)

Updates

by megsilver on June 14, 2017

Hi, everybody!

Short update. New cover art will start popping up for Fantasy Heights Season One. Changes might disrupt the availability of the print version, but not for long.

Also, I’m laying the groundwork for the two Season Two print volumes. If you start seeing Fantasy Heights episode updates on your Kindles, I’m only doing some surgery to clean house for print.

Otherwise, working to get episode 15 built.

Happy New Year!

by megsilver on January 8, 2017

Oh, 2017, whatever will we do with you…

The holidays were a super busy time with the day job. Today I’m regrouping, and sneaking on here to say hi, and wish everyone a safe and happy new year. I do so appreciate everyone’s patience over the last eighteen months or so, and here’s hoping this year goes MUCH more smoothly on the writing front.

A couple announcements to answer common questions landing in das inbox:

Fantasy Heights Questions

Q. How many more episodes in Season Two?

A. Three: Overcome, Exposure, and Intimate.

Q. Will Fantasy Heights see a third season?

A. No. The number of reviews (quantity) tells me the interest just isn’t there anymore. I’ll finish season two as quickly as possible and pursue new ideas.

Q. Will Season Two see print?

A. Yep. To keep tradeback costs down, Season Two will come in two volumes. Volume one—currently underoing some tedious formatting surgery—will contain episodes 10 through 13.

Binary Bindery Questions

I can wrap basically everything up with the following: There’s little hope I can re-open to new clients. The amount of research required to keep up with industry changes is formidable (to say the least) so I feel it’s better to keep the formatting business shuttered.

Social Media Questions

Another summation: Unless something were to change drastically, you won’t see me on social media. I simply lack the time to put in consistent, equitable appearances.

Plus I have a philosophical problem with using social media as a branding tactic. Sure, I understand that it can be fun and rewarding to interact with a brand. I’ve done so myself. If I can ever come up with an idea of engaging with readers in a genuine, non-exploitative, non-invasive way, I’ll be all up in it. For now, I will continue to spend my tragically limited time putting words onto the page rather than into social media. (Yes, I suck. I’m sorry.)

Sessions Questions

Another summation (because I have to go feed people before the hangry overtakes us all): Four more novellas left in this one, and the next two will be sandwiched between the final three Fantasy Heights episodes.

Okay, gotta run. Take care, everyone!

RELEASE DAY: Hooked

Two consenting adults, one hot arrangement…

Harper Isley isn’t looking for romance. Someday she’ll settle down, but for now, all she wants is a strong, trustworthy man to meet her needs without demanding more.

Harper agrees to surrender herself to Matt one night per week. Strict rules govern their weekly sessions, and Matt’s sensual imagination ensures each session runs hotter than the last.

HOOKED is the second book in Meg Silver’s “Sessions” novella series.
HOOKED description: Harper looks forward to Matt’s challenges and rewards as the pair’s steamy bargain continues.
