A Warm Place Is Done!

Hello! I have just finished up my first series as Crystal Candy, and I thought it’d be nice to make a little blog post about it, talk about my thoughts on it, and discuss the potential future of the series and the universe. But first, if you haven’t read it, then don’t read this! Go get started!

I’ve wanted to write a snowbound survival story for a long time now. I don’t know why, honestly. I fucking hate the snow, I hate the cold, I hate winter, and I’d be totally fucked if I was thrown into a survival situation. Seriously, I can’t even stand camping.

And yet, for some reason, survival stories really appeal to me.

I began to get my fix with regards to winter survival when I wrote Haven, and I’m getting more of it as I pen the sequel, but it wasn’t enough. I needed more. When I decided to go ahead with Crystal Candy, I came up with a good dozen ideas for stories. But A Warm Place came first, and hit the hardest. And even better, when I started writing it, it felt good.

That doesn’t always happen. I’ve gotten better about pushing on anyways, and it’s extremely rare that I outright abandon a project once I start it. But not all of them feel good from the beginning.

Given that it was my first entry as Crystal Candy, I went into it with a few goals in mind. As I’ve stated before, I’m trying to be a little more business-minded with this name. I know that can rub people the wrong way, but it seems to be working really well for me. The thing is, although I am attempting to make my work more palatable to a larger audience, I’m not really sure I’m even capable of ‘selling out’. What I mean by that is that there are some lines I just won’t cross. I’m willing to experiment with some new stuff, and I’m willing to impose certain things on my work, but there’s some things I won’t do. I think at least partially because it just isn’t sustainable, writing-wise.

The biggest example is the protagonist’s attitude. A lot of people seem to say that ‘alpha males’ are in. The thing is, I hate alpha males. I hate the concept. It’s a dumb concept. It’s not even a true one, it’s a false narrative. Everything guys use to justify their behavior with regards to acting ‘alpha' is really just a smokescreen, and a poor one, for the fact that they’re just fucking selfish assholes with no empathy, and they want to get away with that. And I hate guys like that. Like, a lot.

So I’m unwilling to make an asshole protagonist. But I am willing to make a more assertive protagonist, and maybe a somewhat more dominant one. I was worried about how successfully I could pull this off, both because I didn’t want to drift into asshole territory, even on accident, but also because I’m not really used to writing more assertive protagonists. But I seem to have done at least a passable job. And I had fun writing Chris Weston.

Now, because I know what it’s like to be a fan of something, I think the natural question is: Will there be more, in any capacity?

The answer to that is: Almost certainly! Initially, I told myself I was going to avoid shared universes for Crystal Candy, because they can be a pain to keep track of, but then I got another idea for this universe, and I also realized some of my stories are similar enough that they could theoretically take place in the same universe, so I figured, well why not? There very likely won’t be any character overlap, because I think it kind of breaks the rules of a harem in a way, if that makes sense. However, there might be SOME wiggle room there, because I know how much people like cameos and recurring characters. But anyway, this is what I have.

  • An idea for another, stand-alone series set in the same universe. The basic premise of A Warm Place was that it takes place in one area. This idea would pretty much be the opposite: It would follow a group of characters moving across the land in search of something. That’s about as far as I’ve gotten in terms of any planning. Right now, it’s just an idea I’ve jotted down.

  • A potential sequel series to A Warm Place. So, I’m even less sure about this one, but let’s just say that I have an idea. It would likely take place a few years later, and it would be bigger in scope. Not like a LOT bigger, but appreciably bigger. I mean, that’s how sequels work. If this does happen, unless something changes, it’ll happen after the first one.

  • Okay, just one more idea, and it’s…weird. So, just to get this out in the open, I like writing about incest. If that grosses you out or offends you, sorry. You can just ignore this part. I’ve been wanting to experiment with it for a long time now, and I finally have begun writing an incest story set in my Science Fiction Universe as Misty Vixen. It’s free and you can read it over on my website right now, right here. Obviously, I can’t publish anything incest-themed on the Kindle. Amazon would have a goddamned shit-fit. And even if publishing pseudo-incest wasn’t also risky (it totally is), I wouldn’t do it anyway, because pseudo isn’t good enough for me. No step-anythings here. Yeah, yeah, I’m a freak, I know. Aren’t we all? But anyway, I came up with an idea that would fit really well in this universe. If and when I do write it, it will be posted here, for free. Let me know if you’d be into that!

And that’s it really. That’s all I have to say about the series. I hope it turned out well, and I hope you like the other series and ideas that I have to write! Thank you for reading and supporting me!

Welcome To My Site!

This is my first ever blog post as Crystal Candy!

If you’re reading this, then I am so glad to have you here. Let’s get started and I can tell you all about myself and what I have to offer.

I write stories about people fucking, let’s just establish that right now. My big theme is harems, as in one dude banging the fuck out of a lot of hot chicks. It’s something I enjoy writing about, and apparently it’s something a lot of people enjoy reading about, so everyone’s happy! Probably the coolest thing about writing about harems is that you can wrap a LOT around it in terms of genre, plot, and setting. So expect a diverse array of stories from me.

I write serial fiction, as it allows me to tell stories at a pretty brisk pace. My titles tend to be between 10,000 - 20,000 words long. I sell them for 2.99$ apiece, but they’ll all be available through the Kindle Unlimited, so you can binge-read them like crazy. I aim to keep a release date of about once a week, and I plan on having several serials going at the same time. I’ll be releasing in trilogies.

So, what do I have to offer right now?

So far, not as much as I’d like. At present, I have a single serial harem story going. It’s called A Warm Place, and it’s set in a post-apocalyptic, near future ice age. It has a heavy emphasis on survival and, obviously, sex. Currently, it’s five parts in, but the sixth part is very close to publishing, and I imagine it will at least go on for another six parts.

You can get started right HERE.

Once A Warm Place 6 is published, I will begin releasing the first trilogy in my GameLit Sci-Fi Action serial, Planet of the Bugs. You can read more about it HERE.

Although my primary focus as Crystal Candy will be writing these harems, I do plan on offering a few bonuses. Namely, drawings of all the pretty ladies I write about. On the website, you’ll have free access to clothed versions. On the my Patreon, however, you will get access to naked versions!

I’m excited about the drawings.

Okay, so where else am I?

You can find me on Twitter. That’s the best place to keep up to date with me and my works.

You can help support me via my Patreon. 1$/month patrons are basically a fancy of way of supporting me and telling me you like me. 3$/month patrons get sneak previews of whatever I’m writing. 5$/month patrons get access to the sneak previews AND all the naked lady drawings!

Finally, check out my Amazon Author Page. Make sure to click that +FOLLOW button below my profile picture. I’m told it helps us both.

The only other thing I have to say is that I am also Misty Vixen. As Misty, I write novel-length stories that more heavily emphasize human men in relationships with monster, alien, or otherwise inhuman women, relationships based on trust and communication and respect, and awesome adventures in four shared universes (Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Paranormal, & Post-Apocalyptic). Check out my books! (There’s like 40 of them…)

I hope you enjoy the stories I have to tell!
