September 2016 Newsletter

Greetings Earthlings,

September is a crappy month. I lost my big baby this month–Sisko was a big part of my daily life and it’s so weird to wake up every day and not see his big head propped up on the end of the bed staring at me like the creepy stalker he was. I cry a little bit every day–his treats, his toys, his bed–whatever I come across just makes the loss of him fresh again. Jack is a mess as well and not handling being the only dog in the house well at all.

It’s going to be weird because I talked about it but please don’t offer me your condolences–it makes me cry like a big girl. He was a beautiful and smart dog with a great personality who made my day brighter just by existing. Losing him hurt but I’m doing well considering.

In Rough Trade news, the site will be cleaned off OCTOBER 1, 2016. I’m working on my three stories and they’ll probably appear on this site inside the next month. I’ll also be setting up the challenge for November on the first so please have your title and fandom ready for sign-ups. Since November is National Novel Writing Month–RT for November will be a 50,000-word challenge.

I launched a forum for Rough Trade and it is called The Workshop. It’s available to readers and writers but PLEASE read the rules regarding posting and commenting. Being an asshole will get you banned immediately with no discussion.

In my spare time, I write fanfiction and lead a cult of cock worshippers on the Internet. It's not the usual kind of hobby for a 40ish "domestic engineer" but we live in a modern world and I like fucking with people's expectations.


  1. Thank you for the update!

  2. Thank you for the new work! It was lovely

  3. I was sooooo excited to find the workshop yesterday. Thank you so much for making just MORE work for yourself to give us more room for participating. I always regretted that it wasn’t possible to generally express my gratitude and appreciation for all those hardworking writers AND you and your helpers – now that is possible and I think that’s great.

    As always I’m impressed – your day seems to have so much more hours than mine (OR it could be I’m just slower than you due to age ggg)
    I’m woufully beheind in listening to the podcasts, but now that autumn and winter is approaching I will catch up.

  4. Oh my…. I’m WOEFULLY BEHIND. Seems I need a beta reader for my comments…

  5. Thank you for the update. Love these newsletters.

  6. Thanks for the update. And the need stories. They were great!

  7. I’m such an addict. I got a little tiny hit from your two new fics and now I’m going to go re-read all the things you have posted. 🙂

    Thanks for the update!

  8. Thank you for the new stories. A new story from you is like an old friend stopping to say hello or Christmas gifts.


  9. The Workshop looks very interesting. Thanks for the resource and the update.

    Good luck on your stories, and hope you are well otherwise, lambchop.

  10. The Workshop is awesome! Great idea and great new stories. Thank you x

  11. Thank you for this update

  12. I hope you can find something to make you smile with the entrance of fall, like the beautiful colors of turning leaves, flavors like pumpkin spice, caramel apple, and peppermint appearing in stores, and Halloween fun approaching.

  13. I’m so excited when I see your posts! Is there a timeline on your update docs I can find somewhere? No rush. As a writer myself, I know about not finishing when your readers think you should, but your stargaze tics are so addicting I’d just like to have a basic idea of how long my withdrawal will need to last on TTB and SOA2

  14. hey keira long time no write,’lol’
    just wondering about the soulmate saga still going hopefully, it is a great story to read. thanx any way, by for now

    • Actually, I’ve written over 300,000 words in the last year.

      And I clearly stated in my author’s note in the last part of season 1 that the Soulmate Bond second season would start when I was ready.

      I’m glad you like it but it is extremely ugly for you to dismiss my other work as “nothing” because you don’t want to read it or haven’t bothered to read it.

  15. I’m so sorry for your loss, my condolences. My heart just broke a little when you described how much you miss your dog. I really wish I could give you a hug.
