I’ve been sitting on my hands for a week, and now they’re all warm and smelly. Mostly, I haven’t spoken about FSoG and abuse because I wanted to see what people were thinking. I wanted to listen rather than proclaim, and I’m glad I did. I have the distance for a more nuanced position.
So, word got out.
I’m currently offering all eight Submission Series books in a tidy little 99c bundle on iBooks called Complete Submission. (links below) All the Dominance stories are in order of release. Three unedited chapters of Coda are in the back and I’m faced with some questions.
I remember a book of party questions I’d bought a billion years ago. It was one of those oddly-sized little things that you get on a whim and look at twice. In it, were questions like, “Would you have an ugly scar on your face if you could gain fifty IQ points?”
(FYI – My answer was “definitely.” My friend, who was a legit genius was like, “Fuck no, this brain makes it hard enough to socialize.”)
One of the questions went something like this:
“Would you risk your life if you knew you’d have a bronze statue of yourself in front of City Hall.”
I want to start this with an apology. I want you all to know I am painfully aware of the time lapse between the well-loved Use, and today, which is entirely too long.
I am sorry.
But before I explain my position, I also want to extend my gratitude. I’ve seen posts and tweets from authors talking about about rude readers who demand the next book in the series in a way that is abrasive and unbecoming.
I want to say this now, and unequivocally.
I have never gotten a rude email about Fiona’s next book.
