A book has been born

It's been a long time since I last posted here, and it has not been for a lack of desire to do so. Rather I have had a book trapped in my head trying to get out, and it's taken this long to commit it to completion. I say completion, but many edits still remain. I can say however, that I am overall, very happy with the result.

It's been a long time, and will probably be yet longer as I agonize over the small changes to improve flow of the narrative and the complexity of character portrayal. This act of authorship has also been an intensely personal, and occult one. A whole world lives and breaths within it's pages and it's characters have been fond guides within my own personal life.

The book itself has turned into somewhat of a scandalous love affair. I am unsure of it's reception, and so will seek to publish under an assumed name. It toys with moralities that so often western society has grown uncomfortable with. It's a firebrand male, and a libidinous female - a wayward child I sought to correct but couldn't. So I let it go how it wanted and let it breed. It isn't by any means a safe book, lending itself often to the erotic, but it's mine.
