Deleted Stories

I see that The Harvest, Priceless, Perfect and Pure have been deleted from Literotica. Just wanted to make a quick update just in case the other post on this was missed. I did delete both series from Lit, and it wasn't an easy choice. There have been so many stories stolen from Lit lately-and while Lit seems to be taking an interest in forcing the sites to close that do this-they just pop right back up under a new name and start stealing again.

That's bad enough, but several authors' have had things stolen and published as ebooks!

This is what made me put the delete request in at Lit. I plan to publish both series, starting with Priceless, so to protect myself I deleted both series. That's not to say I won't publish at Lit. ever again. I do have plans for The Yellow Rope and the follow up to Kiss Me Deadly. Then there is the young stories.

LOL, I have lots and lots of plans. :)

    LOL. Kidding. :D *Hug*

    Good for you! You deserve to have them published! I, for one, am immensely proud of you. :) And I understand, 100%, your need to protect yourself.

  2. *laugh* give me about 6-8 weeks. I'll either be announcing Priceless was picked up or be looking for another publisher cause it was rejected, lol.

  4. Well I'm hoping you'll be telling us it was picked up and when and where we can buy it :D You had to protect your work, it's wrong that people running these sites feel it's ok to steal.

  6. I was going to ask and see what happened to The Harvest but I see you already informed us. I have to say that it stinks that peoples work have been stolen and I can see why you took down most of your stories. So what will happen once you continue the Harvest series? Will you still post them on here?



    I dont know if this will help or not but you could make a yahoo group of The Harvest and post them on there. That way you can make them private and could also make it so certain people can be added seeing as how you will be the one to decide who joins and who doesn't. Just trying to help.

    1. I've begun self-editing Harvest. That means I'm correcting the things I know a publisher will want changed... like removing adverbs and filter words. Right now the series is a mess, lol, for me making corrections. It's torn to shreds. :)

      When I get to the young stories I plan to post them on Lit. I may post them then take them down later since the harvest is no longer there. Honestly I don't know what I'm going to do. I was trying to leave harvest up until I could get the young stories done.That's one of the reason I didn't want to remove Harvest, it just shot my plan all to hell. :(

  10. I was so disappointed to see that priceless had been removed from literotica. But then when I found your blog and that you would be publishing it eventually, I became uber-ecstatic! Congratulations for all your successes and I can't wait to purchase your works, I think I already found some for now!

  13. Wow, I'm so glad to hear this!!! I couldn't figure out why I couldn't find the series when I went back to finish it!!! I was so sad because I just love the series. As soon as I know it is published I'll be in line to buy it!!! Just make sure there is an ebook copy (my husband told me he wasn't willing to move any more boxes full of books! lol).
