With the first volume of The Sinner Saint Diary in it’s final review for publication, I want to formally introduce the series. I am Duncan Lory, the author of The Sinner Saint Diary, and I greatly appreciate you giving the Diary an opportunity to earn your readership. Dare is the very first installment in a series that will progress over a projected twenty unique publications. The volume is coming in at about 35k words over seven chapters. I will be supplementing the series on the website, http://thesinnersaintdiary.com. The site will include interviews with actual characters, background facts, and a few other crazy ideas that I’ll keep a surprise for now.
Essentially, the aim of The Sinner Saint Diary series is to write stories that seem as real as possible: for me, the more real an erotic story seems, the more potential it has to be enjoyable and arousing. The easiest way to write a story that feels real is to write about real experiences. If I could write stories that were all one hundred percent true to history, that would be the ideal. To make my experiences translate into effective stories, I add, remove, and adjust the facts as needed. This first story, Dare, is at least seventy percent true. There are a few stories to be published soon, that are as much as ninety percent true.
This first story will introduce you to several people who show up at different times in stories throughout the series. Due to the very personal and explicit nature of this story, all names were changed and the four primary participants were notified and provided a copy of what I was going to publish. I was initially able to get consent from everyone except for one – a person that one of the main characters is based on. I didn’t feel the story could be told without the character in question, so publication was put on hold for several months, until Thanksgiving day when this wonderful person gave me their blessing to go ahead and publish.
My editor has been fine-tuning for a January first release, but after six months of editing she still can’t seem to make it cover to cover without having to masturbate.
