Part 2 of My Interview is Online

Hi all, just checking in with a quick update to let everyone know that part 2 of my interview is now online. This segment deals with my various influences, my approach to my work, and a bit of advice for those looking to do their photo-manipulations.

Do check it out and please let thrall know if you enjoyed the interview. I had a great time and I’d love to see her continue on interviewing others in the mind control fetish community.

Quickly, I’ll also add that I’ve been fixing some bugs on the site today and trying to get everything back to 100% after the move to the new hosting provider. If you do spot anything that doesn’t appear to be working as it should, don’t hesitate to contact me and let me know.

Part 1 of an Interview with Me is Online

I talk a lot on this blog. I’ve never really mastered brevity. But, as much as I talk, I don’t think I’ve ever discussed how I became interested in erotic mind control; or how I first discovered the online emc community; or how I actually got started doing photo manips way back when.

I’ve answered these and many other excellent questions posed by thrall in an interview she conducted with me recently. The first part is online now over on her blog and the second part should be released this weekend. So, if you’re interested in knowing a bit more about me, how I approach my work, and why am as hopelessly kinked as I am, then pop on over and have a read!

Thanks to thrall for giving me the opportunity to talk about all this. I’m glad to have had the occasion to force myself to recall some of the details surrounding my early emc memories and getting involved with the online scene. I hadn’t really thought about any of that for years so it was nice to remember for it myself and to share it with her.

I hope you’ll have a read and learn something new about your humble artist and his kink. Be sure to let her know if you enjoy it.

Your Friend and Mine, A. Regina Cantatis

What’s that you say? You don’t know A. Regina Cantatis? Well, I bet you do. Ms. Cantatis is the pen name of prolific erotic mind control fiction author, and I’m proud to say my good friend, thrall. “But wait,” I hear you already thinking, “isn’t ‘thrall’ already a pen name?” Yes, that’s certainly true. But I think you’d also agree that its better-suited to the pages of The Archive or The Garden than the pages of say…an honest-to-goodness e-novel.

That’s right my friends! thrall has ventured out into the world of e-publishing and already has released three of her most imaginative tales of EMC-sci-fi-sexiness as downloadable e-books. Currently, she’s selling Love in a Silver Socket, one of my favorites from her back-catalog, and her most recent (and some of her finest) work: Sleepwalkers on Amazon. You can also pick up those titles, as well as her seminal squick classic Octopus Vulgaris over on her store at Smashwords.

Now, you didn’t hear this from me but… I bet if you wandered over to her blog and checked out this post, you might just snag a coupon code to save 25% off Sleepwalkers on Smashwords; good for the next two weeks.

Now, I certainly can’t speak for all of you and the e-reading devices you might own, but I can say, with some authority, that I, and my iPad, are really quite tickled to have a few titles from thrall sitting alongside my complete collection of Sherlock Holmes stories and a deluxe edition of HP Lovecraft shorts.

Every week I visit The Archive, I wish there were donation buttons so I could show my appreciation for the talented authors that I follow there. I’d love to be able to show them how much I value the time they invest in sharing their imagination and craft with all of us. I’m so very, very pleased to finally have the opportunity to give a little something back to support the writing efforts of one of our communities greatest authors.

The fact that she is a dear friend of mine is just icing on the cake.

So, I hope you’ll join me by checking out the Amazon and Smashwords store-fronts for A. Regina Cantatis and that you too will find a happy home for her e-books in your electronic reader of choice.

Meet My Hypnotic Mistress

Okay, I baited you with that title. Its a cheap ruse, I can admit it. But I promise you that if you walk through the curtain the result will be much closer to a man-eating-chicken, rather than a man…eating chicken.

So, just to be clear, I have not fallen under the irresistible spell of an online hypno domme. Rather, I want you to meet someone who has been a powerful presence in many of my manips and has been, exclusively, a figment of my imagination…until now. (more…)

You Must Be thrall

After a couple months of pondering and a few weeks of actually planning, I’m sitting in the lobby of my hotel, watching the door that thrall is going to walk through in a few minutes. I’m nervous. Though my ‘real’ personality peaks through here and there, Callidus is a more reserved version of who I am. thrall has been friends with Callidus, online, for years but now we’re talking about *** and *** being friends, live and in-person; and that’s got me a little worried.

I’ve tried to prepare her for this in the emails we’ve been sending back and forth in the weeks leading up to today; letting more and more of the mask fall away so that she’s not taken aback by how… un-reserved I tend to be as me. But still, I’m worried that she and I won’t get along as well as she and Callidus do.

I look up and she’s walking across the lobby towards me with this big grin on her face and I start chuckling uncontrollably (more…)

Meeting thrall…In the Really, Real World

Last time, I told you I’d elaborate on my summer travel plans. What I didn’t tell you was why.

thrall and I have been friends for years now. If I remember correctly, she emailed me, at the suggestion of Tabico, sometime in 2005 to promote her just-opened blog and we’ve been crafting epic email chains ever since. Although we hadn’t spoken in a little while, earlier this year we re-connected and started talking summer movies, writing, Joseph Gorden Levitt (and whether he’d end up wearing a Batsuit), and plenty more; we really do have a lot in common.

Just to give you an idea of how far behind I am in updating this blog, the very post you’re reading now was originally intended for Thanksgiving. You see, around that time there had been a literal (or literary) deluge of fiction from some of my very favorite authors. Jukebox and thrall had formed an alliance and released the White Album trilogy in late August/early September, Tabico had rolled out a 6-part, chapter-a-week scifi epic beginning in mid-November, and Vanderbilt had been busy adding to his ongoing Harbinger mythos as well as an non-canon gem I’ll discuss later.

The point, dear reader, is that I had a lot to be thankful for in the way of mc fiction last year but I was just a bit too busy to say so at the time. So, I’m saying so now; which in a sense isn’t such a bad thing, because now there’s even more naughty stories to discuss from the aforementioned authors as well as some delightful prose both new and classic from one of my absolute favs: Sara H and an especially hot-n-naughty tale from Flibinite. So without further delay, lets examine these fine authors and their work in a bit more detail. (more…)
