Member Content is Moving to Dropbox

Earlier this year I surveyed members on a range of potential changes to membership content and delivery. I’m now ready to move forward on those, starting 1 July.

I’ll talk more about the changes to member content in a couple of days – the short version is Stories tier is unchanged, Premium tier is going to move to a rolling library of 18 e-books, plus all novels, plus all premium collections.

But today I’m talking about moving to Dropbox.

If you’re a member, you should have already received your invitation to Dropbox at your primary email address. If you’re a member and you haven’t received your invite, please email me ASAP at all.these.roadworks@gmail.com, give me enough information to identify you as a member, and let me know what email I should send it to.

Up to now, member content has been delivered via Google Drive, which had a number of shortcomings:
* It required a Google account to use.
* I was eventually going to run into an upper limit on how many people I could share to.
* It wasn’t great about protecting the privacy of users vis-a-vis other users.
* Its system of invites for those without Google email addresses wasn’t very transparent for me in managing access to the content.

Therefore we’re moving to Dropbox.

For the remainder of June, I will be mirroring all content to both Google Drive and Dropbox. You should be able to find all relevant content on both services.

From 1 July, I will terminate access to Google Drive. All member content will be delivered exclusively via Dropbox.

Here’s what you should and shouldn’t be able to do with Dropbox.

You SHOULD be able to:
* See all content you’re entitled to.
* Download any content you can see to your own computer and keep it.

You SHOULD NOT be able to:
* Edit, delete or move content within my Dropbox folders.
* Upload new content to my Dropbox folders.
* Grant access to additional users.
* See any information about other users.

Please let me know if you find any exception to any of the above so I can rectify it ASAP.

If the change to Dropbox impacts you in some way, I’d like to hear about it to make sure you’re not out of pocket. Please contact me if you are in this situation.

If experienced Dropbox users have any tips or tricks to help me use Dropbox more efficiently or attractively, I’m keen to hear those too.

And once again – if you’re a member, and you haven’t received an invite, please email me ASAP. All feedback, issues or other comments can reach me at all.these.roadworks@gmail.com

PS: Sorry about any confusion arising from the Dropbox emails referring to “Abnagarth Frustell”. One of several old fake names attached to accounts that I hadn’t realised was still hanging around. Fixed for the future.

June Update

Thank you to fans, customers and members for your continued support of All These Roadworks writing! Here’s what’s happened over the last month.

Personal update

2020 just keeps on doing its thing.

We’re no longer in lockdown here, but social distancing is still enforced, so I’m really not seeing other people outside my household very much.

But things are better than they were! I’m getting more original writing done.

For reasons of health and COVID, I’m doing very little paid work in my day job right now, so this website represents a larger and larger portion of my total income. If you’d like to support me, now is a great time to buy e-books and memberships!

Nevertheless, I’m healthy overall, and not in any immediate financial stress.

What did members get in May?

Early Access

There were 22 new stories posted in Early Access in May.

Story Collections

All members received four new collections in May:

  • Cast A Slutty Spell – Stories of Magical Erotica (3rd edition) (view in shop)
  • The Milk Industry – Stories of Hucows and Lactation (2nd edition) (view in shop)
  • Daddy’s Girl – Stories of Spoiled Princesses and Incestuous Kink (all new!) (view in shop)
  • The Sound of His Voice – Stories of Hypnotic Domination (all new!) (view in shop)

Other content

Premium Members received four chapters of Hailey’s Training, an unfinished novel-length story themed around watersports, incest and humiliation.

Premium Members continued to have access to the full e-book library, in addition to the novel-length story The Lesbian Debt.

How is the site doing?

May was the site’s best month so far. If the site made this much income every month, I could live on it – just.

However, I think April and May were boosted by the lockdown bubble, with people in isolation buying porn. June is showing signs of being significantly less profitable. My hope is that the *average* of the site continues to increase regardless of individual spikes and dips.

I’m ALSO taking a hit because the Australian dollar has significantly strengthened versus the US dollar, largely based on our countries’ comparative responses to coronavirus. When I started the site, I made the decision to sell in US dollars because that is where the vast majority of my customers are coming from. However, betting against my country is leading to some financial pain as the exchange rate changes. That’s on me, I guess.

Thank you to everyone who’s purchased an e-book or membership over the month of May.

Story Requests and other features

As members are aware, I’ve been struggling with some content during the COVID period. I feel I’m trending back upwards at this point, which is good.

As of this writing I have one undelivered story request to process. (It’s the next “pop star” story.) Then I’ll be reaching out to members who’ve backed ongoing stories in the past to see if they want the next chapters.

Given I’ve had difficulty writing to requests for a few months now, I don’t want to promise what happens next after that, but I would like to continue or finish the ongoing stories, so that’s a priority.

You’ve already seen a (short) Reality Check go up in June, and those should be back to one a month now, in an ongoing fashion.

Arth-Keros will have to wait until I’m confident I’m back on track with core content.

Site upgrades, Dropbox, et cetera are likewise paused until I’ve got the core content covered.

Donation

As part of the process of writing gender-degradation and non-consent erotica in a responsible way, I have committed to donating at least 5% of the site profits each month to a women’s charity combating domestic violence, unsafe housing and/or sexual assault. (See this post for more info.)

This month I donated an amount of $140 AUD (about $98 USD) to a registered charity providing domestic violence crisis support to women.

COVID-19 lockdown is putting a lot of pressure on domestic violence services right now, due to new stresses in relationships, and increased impacts on victims in abusive relationships having to spend more time with their partners. Now is a great time to make a donation to a domestic violence charity in your area if you have the ability to do so.

Conclusion

Thank you to all members for your continued support in a difficult time. I value you all immensely, and I hope you still feel like you’re getting good value for your memberships.

Thank you also to direct customers, and thank you to all fans, whether you spend money or not. The idea of monetising my work was always that the people who *did* have a disposable income to spend on erotica would subsidise my creative output for those who don’t, and I appreciate feedback and love from all my readers.

Remember – you can also support my work by:
* sharing your enthusiasm and links to my work in consenting kinky communities (but remember it’s high impact, so don’t put it anywhere where someone who doesn’t want to see it might be offended by it);
* reblogging my posts on BDSMLR,;
* catching typos in BDSMLR posts or e-books and reporting them to me;
* sharing your fanfiction or fan-art – I’ll even re-post it if (a) it falls within my range of kinks; (b) I’m satisfied you hold copyright to all elements; and (c) you give me explicit permission to do so.

Thanks again! And keep enjoying!

Reality Check: On Gender

As part of writing non-consent and gender degradation erotica in a responsible manner, I regularly present a Reality Check article, touching base with safety, respect, equity and health in the real-world. 

===

I’m not going to make this a whole essay, but it’s probably a good time to say this.

Sex is not the same thing as gender. 
The only person who’s an authority on your gender is you.

Look, because of what my kinks are, my erotica fiction is a complete mess when it comes to representation of gender. It does it wrong, and that’s the point of it, because taboos are hot.

But our kinks should not be our politics.

Trans women are women. 
Trans men are men. 
Non-binary people exist and are wonderful.

Sure, a trans woman who identified as an adult may have different life experiences from a woman who has identified as a woman since birth, and that means they have different things to bring to a discussion on women’s issues. But so do a black woman and a white woman, or a poor woman and a rich woman.

Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Non-binary people exist and are wonderful. 

To all my readers everywhere on the gender spectrum, you’re welcome and valued. If you find something hot in my writing, please enjoy it. And if you don’t – well, I don’t know why you’re reading it, but there’s nothing wrong with that either.

Reality Check

Member Exclusive E-book: Diana Tells The Truth

Regular readers will have seen the ongoing story series Diana Tells The Truth, detailing the subjugation of Wonder Woman at the hands of Lex Luthor. I wrote this as a piece of fanfiction fluff – but readers enjoyed it, so it ballooned out into a novella big enough to fill an e-book.

Now, finally, the story is concluded – and I’m presenting the finished work in its entirety in the new e-book Diana Tells The Truth – An Unauthorised Novella of Amazon Subjugation.

Now for the bad news.

I don’t own these characters. I believe that I am legally able to use them in this story under the grounds of fair use, as I’m creating a porn satire, and not interfering with any commercial business of the rights holders.

However, for the sake of caution, I am not offering this e-book for sale. You cannot purchase it for money.

The e-book will be exclusively available as a free bonus to all Premium Members, now and in the future, and to Stories Members for the month of June.

That means if you’re a member, at either tier, you can find the book on Google Drive right now. To everyone else – I’m sorry, I can’t sell you this book.

Okay, so what’s in the book?

  • Chapters 1 through 10 of Diana Tells The Truth as previously published on BDSMLR and to members, with minor fixes and corrections.
  • An exclusive 11th epilogue chapter, concluding the story.
  • A character gallery providing a brief background on the women who appear in the story.

The book is available in both PDF and EPUB formats.

The story deals with themes of non-consent, slavery, gender degradation and mind control. It features impregnation, lactation, and some implied bestiality.

The total page count for the e-book is 71 pages. It has the series numbering “F1” (for Fanfiction #1).

Memberships are available in the All These Roadworks shop.

New EPUB Conversions… and typo bounty!

EPUB Conversions

Good news! For those who prefer to read ATR e-books in EPUB format, there are now new books available in EPUB!

Converting the entire existing library into EPUB will take some time, but as of this writing you can enjoy nine books in EPUB. The books available are as follows:

These are NOT new editions – just EPUB versions of the existing books. (Although I did fix a typo in The Ternish Betrayal along the way and add series numbering to those that were missing it.) Versions of these titles available to members on Google Drive have been updated accordingly.

If you have previously direct-purchased these books from the shop, you can download the updates and EPUB versions for free, using the email you received when you made your purchase. If you’ve lost the email, or have any trouble downloading the EPUB, send me an email at all.these.roadworks@gmail.com and please include as much information as possible to help me identify your order.

All titles continue to be available in PDF, and I recommend the PDF as the most attractive format to read, where possible.

If you find a problem with an EPUB version or have advice on improving the EPUB formats, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I will continue to convert old titles into EPUB over time, and all new books and editions will launch with EPUB versions available.

Typo Bounty on E-Books

In addition, until 31 July 2020, I am offering a bounty on spotting typos and other errors in my e-books. Spot any typo, report it to me, and win a voucher for one standard e-book of your choice in the shop! (Or a $3.99 discount on Golden Sins or Titcage.)

Here’s how to claim it:

Step 1) Find any eligible error in the most recent edition of an e-book.
Step 2) Contact me by private message on BDSMLR, or by email to all.these.roadworks@gmail.com
Step 3) If I confirm the typo, I’ll reply with your coupon code.
Step 4) Use the coupon code in the All These Roadworks shop to claim your free book!

What counts as an “eligible error”?

  • It must be either:
    (a) a typographical error (e.g. “dbor” instead of “door”);
    (b) an obviously misused word (e.g. “his” instead of “her”);
    (c) an obvious error of phrasing (e.g. “just desserts” instead of “just deserts”);
    (d) a significant continuity error (e.g. use of wrong character name, reference to wearing of clothing that has already been removed, etc);
    (e) a significant publication error (e.g. missing paragraph, story starting on wrong page, missing carriage return, etc); or
    (f) entirely at my discretion, any other fixable error brought to my attention.
  • It must be from an e-book. Pointing out errors on BDSMLR is appreciated, but I’m particularly looking to clean up the e-books right now.
  • It must be from the latest version of the e-book. Check your cover matches the version displaying in the shop.
  • You must be the first to report it. (At my discretion I may reward several people for the same typo, but I’m only promising a reward for the first.)

Rewards for this competition may be transferred to friends or followers if you don’t want to redeem them personally. So if you are already a Premium Member or already have all the e-books, please let me know about typos anyway!

Offer expires 31 July 2020.
