(UPDATE: This week's free story has now been removed, though I'm keeping the post up to save the comments. Thank you to all who have viewed and commented on this tale, - Tabitha)
(My beloved pooch of twelve years passed away very late on Christmas night,
so at the moment I am not really in the best mood for writing. I've been
very busy taking care of him these past several months, and especially
the last few weeks. This (and my difficulties at my former Evil Day Job)
is largely why my productivity has plummeted recently.
When I am done
grieving over him, I will start writing again, with a vengeance. But until
then, these free Friday tales are probably the most you'll see of me.
Thank you all for understanding,
This week's free story is another old tale of mine, slightly reworked in a few places to fix some old spelling/grammar errors. It is a self-bondage/predicament bondage-themed story, about a woman who builds a self-bondage device to play out her fantasies. Naturally, things go awry! :-)
Predicament bondage devices like the one in this tale are an old favorite subject of mine; I actually wrote this story to explore a few fun ideas I had for such a device. I rather like what I've come up with here. Hopefully the feeling will be mutual.
Also, I am going to rewrite this story as a full-length ebook soon, though I have some different ideas for the device's inner workings. And I want to develop the Landlady's character a bit more too. I've long planned to write a series of short, stand-alone tales following this story's protagonist, Vera Purdee, and I think the Landlady would make a fun reoccurring villain/foil to play with in the future.
Remember, this tale will be deleted by next Friday, when I upload another free tale. So if you want to read it, do so now rather than later. And be sure to comment and let me know if you want me to write more tales like this.
As always, click the Read More link to read the story, and have a Happy New Year!
