2019 Commission Prices & Open Slots

arjah-patreon-logo

The moment at least some of you have all been waiting for — it’s commission season!

AVAILABILITY

As of March 2019, I am open for up to three commission slots.

Price categories are described below; a one-off is a single commission slot, a standard story two, and a major novel or collection three.

If you are interested in a commission this month, please email me at a.vivian.vane@gmail.com with the following details:

  • The size of your commission request (one-off, standard story, or major novel/collection)
  • Short summary of the characters, plot points, and kinks you want to see in your commission.

If I’m interested in accepting your commission, we’ll go into a more detailed back-and-forth, so don’t feel like you have to be incredibly specific in your summary — this is just a basic synopsis so I can decide whether it’s a request I can fulfill.

You will receive a reply from me whether your commission is accepted or not.

PRICING

For the first time, I am moving away from by-the-word pricing (more below on why). Commissions will be available at three different flat rates:

  • $150 – One-Offs: Single scene shorties. These will be wham, bam, thank-you-ma’am stories that introduce a couple characters and a setting, get down to the dirty details, and wrap up nice and quick. Examples from my past work would be things like the Discipline in the Workplace short, the Dickgirls Around Town standalones, and most of the monthly Patreon shorts. Length will typically range from 5-10,000 words.
  • $500 – Standard Stories: Complete stories with narrative arcs and at least something resembling character development. The bulk of my catalog falls into this category, so if you’ve ever read one of my standalone ebooks, you know roughly what to expect! Length will vary, but generally fall between 10-25,000 words.
  • $1500 – Novels, Collections, Etc.: Major works involving multiple story arcs, larger casts of characters, and extensive details beyond the basic fuck-scenes. For examples from my catalog, think things like Dickgirl Cheerleaders, Futa Island, and Fallen From Grace. Length will typically be over 40,000 words.

Particularly large commissions may be subject to individual negotiation — if you’ve got a mega-super-epic or a very large collection of related stories in mind, hit me up and we’ll talk, but be prepared for that to be a special rate.

In all cases, I require 25% down-payment upon accepting the commission, with the remainder due when it is complete, edited, and ready to send.

FAQs

What will/won’t you write?

In general, I’m happy to tackle most fetishes, gender pairings, etc.

Niche or “extreme” stuff doesn’t particularly bother me (although there are a few things I’ll say no to because they just don’t give me a sexy vibe, and I’m not confident in my ability to make a hot story out of something for which I feel absolutely no sparks).

I would say ask for whatever it is you want, and the worst case scenario is that I’ll tell you it’s not a project I can take on. I am not going to be shocked or offended by requests, regardless of how “extreme.” Believe me, I’ve probably written weirder!

What happened to by-the-word pricing?

I’ve been doing this work for quite a while now, and I can say with the certainty of experience that word count is a stupid metric. It’s a sometimes-useful measure of productivity, and that’s about it.

A really good, well-thought, well-crafted story of 10,000 words is better value for money than 50,000 words that the author slogged through to meet word count. Trust me, I’ve written both!

Flat-rate pricing lets me focus on the specifics of each individual commission request, not on how to fit those requests into a predetermined length.

What keeps you from taking my down payment and running?

Monomaniacal focus and an obsessive fear of failure, mostly, but obviously I also have my reputation as a seller at stake here.

If for some reason I accept a commission and then find that I absolutely can’t complete it, I’ll refund the down payment. But it hasn’t happened yet, and the only times I’ve come close have been when I was struggling to bring an complex story to a conclusion that made sense.

Down-payments are not negotiable, so please don’t ask me to waive yours. They’re my insurance against people who request a commission and then flake on the final payment, and they’re also pretty vital for balancing monthly budgets when a larger commission takes more than a month to complete.

How long do commissions take?

Very loosely speaking, a week or two per slot.

That means 1-2 weeks for a short one-off, 2-4 weeks for a standard story, and 3-6 weeks for a major novel or collection.

Depending on the details of a given commission and how many commissions I’m working on at a time, things could take more or less time. I always give an estimated time of completion for each commission before we process the down payment.

What if my request falls somewhere between the payment categories?

Make the request and I’ll tell you where it falls. But in general, if it’s more complex than a single “plot, what plot?” fuck-scene, we’re at least in Standard Story territory.

Advance Reviewers Wanted

Tags

, , ,

Now that I have your attention: I’m currently opening up my Advance Reviewer Program to between 3-5 fans who are willing to read, consider, and thoughtfully review A. Vivian Vane stories as they’re released (hur hur hur, “release”). This is an offer I usually make about once a year, so act fast!

Please Note: To participate, you must have an Amazon account from which you are willing to post reviews on erotica, and which has spent at least $50 on Amazon using a valid debit or credit card. Amazon no longer allows accounts that have not spent at least $50 to post customer reviews on ebooks. This is their rule, not mine—basically, they want to make sure it’s a real customer leaving the review and not a sock puppet account.

The Advance Reviewer Program

Here’s how this works:

1. Roughly 1-2 weeks before public release of a new A. Vivian Vane title, Advance Reviewers will be emailed a link to a complete PDF of the ebook. The stories are complete and edited by this point; the PDF will be the same text that paid purchasers receive when the book goes live.

2. Included in the email with the ebook will be a link to the Amazon item page.

3. In exchange for their free copy, Advance Reviewers are asked to post a succinct, positive review of the book on its Amazon page. (In some cases the book may still be in pre-order, meaning reviews cannot be posted; I will include the release date in the email so reviewers know when they can post reviews.)

Reviews need not be five-star, although it’s always appreciated. (The way the Amazon system is weighted, anything less than four stars hurts the title more than it helps, so please don’t rate books under four stars unless they are incomplete, have formatting issues, or are otherwise unreadable!)

Reviewers will continue to receive advance titles for free so long as they continue to post useful, positive reviews. An occasional skipped title is fine, but reviewers who skip reviewing multiple titles in a row will be removed from the list.

How to Become an Advance Reviewer

To sign up for the Advance Reviewer Program, email me at a.vivian.vane@gmail.com, subject heading “Advance Reviewer,” and include in the body of your email:

  • the email address at which you wish to receive your advance copies and notifications
  • the Amazon account name with which you will be posting reviews (so that I can verify reviews have been posted)
  • any “hard no” kinks or gender pairings that you cannot comfortably read about or comment on (if there are a lot of these, I probably can’t use you — my books are quite wide-ranging!)

If you’re selected, I will reply to let you know that you’ve been added to the Advance Reviewer list. You’ll begin receiving preview copies within the next week or two!

If you enjoy my works, this is your chance to get them completely for free, every single title, so don’t hesitate — email me at a.vivian.vane@gmail.com to become an Advance Reviewer today!

Hello, fans! The finest in handcrafted smut is back at last, with new titles rolling out of Chez Vivs every few weeks from now through the new year.

Are you excited? Because I am so excited.

First up we have a new installment in the ever-popular “Dickgirls Around Town” series and the first volume of a brand-new fantasy epic, both available for preorder right now:

 

I’m very excited about both of these. Coming back after far too much Real World(TM) work, it’s been luxurious to dive into the unlimited word count of epic fantasy.

At 30,000 words and 60,000 words respectively, these titles are heavyweights in the world of ebooks — a whole lot of “bang” for your buck, if you know what I mean wink wink.

Stay tuned for a lot more coming soon, because we’ll be rolling new stuff out well into the new year — and as always, preorders save, so be sure to grab these before they go live!

Best,

AVV

“Seduction Smooth and Shiny” Available on All Platforms!

For those of you who prefer to shop outside the ever-expanding Amazon empire, good news: Seduction Smooth and Shiny, my latex-inspired fantasy fetish frolic, is now available direct from Smashwords, or from other online markets including Apple, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble.

(If any aspiring smut writers were wondering, I used Direct2Digital for those handy “Books2Read” links. Back when it was just Amazon/Smashwords/B&N it was possible to individually upload a title to each platform, but now there are so many sellers and subscription services that I’d go crazy without a handy little portal to cross-post the works for me.)

You can still read a free preview of Seduction Smooth and Shiny right here on the blog — and as always, I urge everyone to sign up for the mailing list, because there’s a new title coming soon, and you will not want to miss the deal I’ve got for subscribers on that one.

Trust me. I’m a smut writer. 🙂 Sign up for the mailing list today!

It’s here, it’s here, the first of the year — and the first new A. Vivian Vane title of 2018 to go with it, Seduction Smooth and Shiny!

A true “everything but the kitchen sink” smorgasbord of fetishes, this one pushes all kinds of buttons: fantasy/magic, transformation, latex, goo/slime girl, and some highly metaphysical is-it-or-isn’t-it-incest.

(Spoiler: technically, it isn’t–you can’t be blood relatives if you don’t have any blood! But that doesn’t make it any less naughty…)

You can save 25% by pre-ordering on Amazon, and you’ll get the title delivered hot and steamy (oh so steamy) straight to your e-reading devices on January 15th. After that, it goes up to $3.99, so save by ordering now!

Need a sneak peek to see if it’s for you? Read on below…

New Year, New Titles

I’ve made up my mind: 2018 is going to be a good year. And a smutty year.

(Those two things are basically always linked in my mind: smutty things are good. Good things are smutty.)

2017 was not a very good or smutty year, for lots of reasons that I don’t need to get into here, because who wants to read a sad smut blog?! Tears aren’t sexy, unless they’re tears of ecstasy, or a helpless submissive’s tears as she’s given the punishment she hates but secretly craves, or those hot little eye-stinging tears that spring up when someone nips your flesh just a tiny bit too hard, or, or, or…

…sorry, where was I?

Oh yes. New year, new titles. 2018 is on its way, and I have books for you! Some of them will be fantasy-themed, some of them will be dickgirl-themed, and some of them will be experiments or new things or personal projects born straight out of the perverse lusts of my dark and twisted heart. I’m not sure anyone will be able to tell the difference, TBH.

Some works you can expect in the immediate future:

Seduction Smooth and Shiny – A fantasy/latex fetish hybrid that’s as strange and wonderful as it sounds! If you like slick, shiny, stretchy things (and who doesn’t), this should be a delightful little one-off romp.

The Demon and the Damsel – Classic AVV dickgirl fantasy with all the trimmings: seductive shemale temptress, helplessly enthralled mortal morsel; massively messy mating ensues.

A Giant Filthy Fantasy Epic – That’s more of a working title than what’s going to go on the covers, I suspect, but whatever it ends up being called, I have many, many, many pages of epic Heaven vs. Hell fantasy fucking to share, with more on the way! This has been a huge, time-devouring project, and it’s all finally coming together into a smutty serial that I think my fans will appreciate.

…and so much more, but let’s take things one at a time! Or, okay, three at a time.

“Three at a time” sounds more like my kind of scene anyway, doesn’t it? Appetites, they’ll be the death of me…but I hope yours are whetted for lots and lots of AVV-brand filth in 2018!

All the Titles, All the Platforms

Hello again, my kinky darlings. I know it’s been a while, but since some of you have asked — yes, all the 2017 A. Vivian Vane titles are now up on all the major ebook retail platforms, including Smashwords, Amazon, and a whole host of others.

That includes works that were previously only available on Amazon, including:

If there is a title you want to purchase (you can view my whole catalog here), and it is not available on the service that you prefer, please drop me a line in the comments or at a.vivian.vane@avivianvane.com and I will see what I can do.

Stay tuned, because there’s more coming soon!

Less-than-three, AVV.

Catch-Up Week

Tags

,

Dear Readers,

So much catching up to do — and I’m hoping to get through all of it this week!

There are a number of titles in the back catalog that have been live on Amazon for ages, but never made it to Smashwords or other smaller distributors for the folks that don’t want to use Amazon. Over this next week, look for the following titles to start popping up on your favorite distributor:

  • Club Patriarchy: Entrance Exam – A bondage/submission thriller focused on intense male dominant/female submissive relations!
  • Futa Island 3: Mounted and Mated – The conclusion to the sweaty, sultry, spectacular Futa Island series.
  • Stockholm Syndrome – Dark, abduction-themed erotica. Not for the faint of heart!
  • Dickgirls Around Town: A Room for Four – Two girls and two dickgirls in a carefree menage-a-everybody motel room romp. Delicious!

All of the above are already available on Amazon, but I’ll be happy to have them available for non-Amazon users in a very short while.

Thank you all for reading!

Dark Erotica “Stockholm Syndrome” – Free Preview!

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Stockholm Syndrome is live! Head over to Amazon to pick up your copy of this new and very dark erotic fantasy from A. Vivian Vane!

This has been an exciting project — not quite my first abduction narrative, but certainly the first to dwell in such loving and psychological details on the experience of confinement, torture, deprivation, etc. I think it’s very sexy, in a tense and intimate way that doesn’t necessarily need a fuck-scene every third paragraph to get the juices flowing.

That said, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, so I’m happy to have some fantasy and dickgirl projects coming up for release immediately after this. But for those who want to take a walk on the dark side, read on for a special preview of the dark and depraved world of Stockholm Syndrome…


Free Preview: “Stockholm Syndrome”

A jab of the cattle prod at Katherine’s shoulder made her shriek, but no pain accompanied it; Mason had not triggered the electric current.

“Go to the bed,” said Mason. “Get up on it, hands and knees. Cuff yourself around one of the vertical bars.” He nudged her again, then lifted the prod just a few inches away from her skin and triggered it once more, filling the air with the horrifying pop and crackle of electricity.

stockholm-coverKatherine actually screamed—she couldn’t help herself—and uncurled as fast as her starved limbs could obey. She tried to stumble to her feet, but Mason was on her at once, jabbing her in the calf with the prod and sending a lance of burning pain through her leg. “Hands and knees!” he barked. “Crawl.”

Sobbing, Katherine crawled. She could barely even remember a time when these things had been part of her fantasies. Between hunger and pain, her animal brain was completely in charge—and it was a broken, beaten animal, desperate only to avoid more pain. Knees banging on the hard concrete floor, Katherine scrambled on all fours to the bed; climbed clumsily up on it and worked her way forward until she could pass the chain of the handcuffs behind one of the vertical bars and seal her right wrist in its cuff once more.

“That’s better,” Mason said again, the second time he had uttered the phrase. Katherine shuddered at its implications. She was being trained—and it was working, faster than she could have dreamed possible. Despite a frantic revulsion churning in her stomach, she made herself stay perfectly still on the bed, braced on her hands and knees with her naked ass in the air, as Mason lazily stripped off his shirt and unbuttoned his cargo pants.

Laying the cattle prod on the bed next to them, Mason climbed up behind Katherine and scooted forward on his knees. Licking one finger, he slipped it between Katherine’s legs and prodded at her naked sex. Katherine flinched at the touch, and at once Mason’s other hand slapped down hard on her ass, stinging and making a loud crack!

“Hold still,” grunted Mason. His fingers went on probing, wriggling from side to side and scraping against the folded flesh between Katherine’s thighs. She bit her lip hard to try and stifle a whimper; bowed her head and let it rest against the top of the bedframe as her abductor made a lazy, thorough inspection of her naked privates. From time to time, Mason would stop, withdraw his hand, and lick his finger again, then return it and resume probing, until the soft lips of her slit were thoroughly slicked and parted easily for a questing fingertip. “Better,” Mason murmured, and Katherine blushed and clenched her teeth in shame.

A soft rustle of cloth and a pair of fingers spreading her wider was all the warning Katherine got. Warmth pressed suddenly against her backside—and against her insides. The firm, fleshy hardness of Mason’s cock shoved into her body without ceremony, taking her hole in a simple and effective thrust. Katherine’s body clenched, and her stomach churned. Before she could cry out (or bite a cry back, fearful still of punishment), her abductor was hilted deep inside her, and moments later he was fucking her in firm, brisk strokes. She heard him breathe out in shuddering satisfaction; felt him shift and spread his knees a little wider as the thrusts grew more and more forceful.

Katherine hung her head low and let her tears fall silently onto the bare mattress. This was it, she reflected; this was what she had been dreaming about all those bored, lonely years. A big, bad man had taken her away, and now he was using her as his own personal fucktoy, and there was nothing she could do about it…
