15 Feb 2020: Commissions are currently closed. I take commissions only for erotic stories (not for non-erotica fantasy). The following is a non-exhaustive list of what material I will write:
If you're not sure if I'll write the particular fantasy you have in mind, just ask me.
I will not write the following types of content. This list may not be exhaustive - I'm sure there are more kinks out there than I've ever dreamed of, some of which I will find objectionable for various reasons.
'I retain all rights' means that I may publish the finished piece on my website and I may submit it for publication elsewhere, should I desire. This also means you cannot claim the story is your own work nor can you submit it for publication. You may post it on social media and other websites so long as it is not modified in any way, my name is clearly stated as the author, and you link back to my website.
By requesting a commission from me, you are affirming to me that you are at least 18 years of age; that the material you are requesting is legal for you to view and possess; and that you understand and accept my copyright and payment stipulations.
Commissions are priced by word count, with a minimum of 2000 words. The price includes the actual text in three electronic formats and a customized e-book cover image. I cannot promise to come in at an exact word count (e.g. 'please write exactly 1912 words'), but I will respect the requested range. All prices are in USD. Page count is based on the Amazon Kindle average of 250-300 words per page.
If you want a private commission that I do not repost or share on my website, Patreon, etc., there will be an additional 25% added to the total price.
I accept payment via Paypal only.
Because longer stories are more work. The longer a story, the more attention I need to take to crafting scenery, characters, plot, continuity, and making it all believable from one scene to another. It also means more re-reading, editing, and refining, and probably more research (especially if it involves a specific location, kink, etc. that I may not be familiar with). Shorter stories require a lot less time and effort to do. A 8000 word story might take me a month or two to write; a 2000 word story might take me a few days.
Yes, you can. You may even find a story that’s not only published, but contains your particular special kink or character, and is well-written on top of it. If so, go buy it – I’m all for supporting smut authors! But if you’re like most people, you’ll never find that magical combination of just the right perversion, characters, and situation that really hits the spot, unless you request it specifically. This is your chance to get tailor-made porn just for you.
No. If you give me an upper limit, I’ll do my damnedest to stay within that. Firstly, I’d be a shit businesswoman if I charged my customers inflated prices, and I wouldn’t get much business. Secondly, there’s a certain flow and rhythm to every story, and padding it out unnecessarily ruins that flow and makes it a less powerful story in the end. Thirdly — and selfishly — the less I write, the sooner I’m done, so I have plenty of motivation to do it and move on.
No. If you tell me ‘no more than 4000 words’, then it is my job as a writer to honor that. You aren’t writing this, after all — I am. I will edit, modify dialog, and slim things down as necessary to make sure that that ‘little bit extra’ gets shaved off.
I will inform you up-front if I believe what you’re requesting isn’t possible within the range you expect, and we can negotiate on whether you’re willing to pay the cost to get all the detail you desire, or whether you’d prefer to focus the story on fewer, but more powerful, things.
Perhaps. I am protective of my characters, and they have their own particular personalities, kinks, and backgrounds. If the scene you want them in is something I could see them doing, then absolutely. If it’s completely out of character for them, I’ll let you know and maybe we can come up with something else.
Yes! But you’ll need to give me details on what they look like, what they like, their personality, and similar. It is very rare that anyone can write a character as well as their creator, so my voice for them might be good, but it will not be perfect.
Only if I can get consent from that other person. You’ll need to provide me with their contact details so I can verify it.
While I am flattered by the vote of confidence, I will not write your novel for you. Also, keep in mind that a novel is considered to be at least 40,000 words in length. Would you really want to pay me that much money and have me put my name on it and get all the credit for your ideas?
