Hey, look! I haz a profile! o:
I also have a really cool podcast called 1337-Four! For major nerd creds, you can come check us out at 1337-four.blogspot.com.
Beyond all that, I'm just a guy who likes to write from time to time. I'm not the fastest writer in the world, but I try to have something up on a fairly regular basis. Feedback is my friend! If you like what I write, or hate it, please let me know! It helps me improve. I am aiming to break into the novel business at some point, so all input is welcome! If you like what I write, and feel like sending a tip, I certainly won't say no! Every little bit helps, and you get oodles of internet points by clicking this little link here!
Other stuff I like... Hmm, gaming (not just the electronic kinds either) and reading, naturally, especially sci-fi and fantasy. I'm into a lot of outdoorsy stuff too. I love hiking and skiing and biking, and I fence (yes, the sword kind, not the 'dividing houses' kind), play tennis, as well as a bunch of other random fun stuff. I love electronic music, particularly trance and dubstep, though my tastes are pretty wide.
Things I dislike: People who ask for advice, then ignore it. Arrogance in all its forms. Writers who feel that proper grammar is uncool. Grapefruit. D:
Roleplay? Mmm, usually not interested, sorry! If you care to chat for other reasons however, I'm always open to such, so give me a poke!
MSN/Skype/Gtalk: Ask me.
Will you be my beta reader?
In a word, no, sorry. If you ask me to take a look and leave a comment on your story, I'll do my best to accomodate you, but my time is already divided as it is for beta reading.
Can I be your beta reader?
The general answer to this is also no, as there are others filling that role currently. However, if you have a genuine interest in helping out, feel free to shoot me a message. Also, I may consider doing more livewrites in the future, if there's any interest in that.
Requests/Suggestions: Maybe, no harm in asking! But I keep my own schedule, and have a lineup of stories already that I want to write. It has to be an idea I'm pretty enamored with for me to take it up.
Commissions: Currently CLOSED. However, pricing is as follows (subject to change):
$3/1000 words for a 2 character story.
+$1/1000 words to add a third character.
+$2 per character/1000 words for four characters or more.
'Character' means any character with significant involvement in the story. This includes active participants in sex scenes, even if they have had no prior character development. No charge for transient characters. (Cameos, single lines of dialogue, 'extras' in the shot, redshirts, etc.)
All wordcounts are rounded up from 700, anything below is floored to the nearest thousand.
Once the story idea has been discussed in some detail, I give you an estimate on projected wordcount. Further details can be adjusted from there.
I do not pad my wordcounts, and I do not purposely go far over projected wordcounts. Initial estimates are just that - estimates - but there shouldn't be much more than 2k of difference, less or more. Anything I've added of my own accord is free of charge.
You can define what you feel is a reasonable wordcount limit, but be advised that story quality/detail may decrease. I can only estimate how long the final product will be, and many factors can affect the length of the story. I don't charge for words over predefined limits.
At the 1000 word mark or so, I send you a preview so you can be sure you're happy with the content. If it's good to go, I continue working on it until it's finished (possibly sending further updates for longer stories). After payment, you receive the story file to do with as you like.
Things I won't do:
Rape (if it's in there as a sexual kink only), torture (again, as a kink), vore (exceptions may be made if it's soft), snuff, hyperphallic, scat/vomiting.
Thanks for visiting!
First day of Vancoufur is just about over, wrapping up with Emperor's new Groove and Pacific Rim. T-minus 19 hours until my panel! If you're around the con, make sure to come say hi!
