Something for the holiday weekend

Let's finish up our Halloween collection with a tale involving four white witches, a ceremony, a meal and three China Dolls in Wiccan Woes.

Fresh from the Multiple Maidens collection is a story called Truth or Dare - and the photo links are essential to follow what's happening...

Finally, Mordaca has another Rude Awakening tale to tell.

Good Morning

Two new tales for you today, one brand new and one I finally managed to recover from a corrupted stick.

First the old, as the internal disciplinary committee of the Burglars' Association meet to discuss recent attacks on their assets, and to decide if those responsible should Pay The Piper.

Secondly, a slightly different tale for me, as a young girl called Jayne is introduced to some new experiences by her boyfriend, with the assurance that It's Just A Game.

More Friday, including one final spooky story for the month...

Sorry about that

Let me see if I can make up for the delay...

First, and continuing our Haloween theme, two sisters and their daughters are plannign to attend a costuem party when there is a knock on the door. For this Trick Or Treat, however, they were not expecting the Family of Crime...

Next up, a classic Multiple Maidens tale in the form of The Search - along with embeeded links to the photos that inspired the story.

Finally, our weekly visit to the mind of Mordaca telles the tale of one master criminal, and How He Was Caught Red Handed.

Normal business will be resumed next week.

Sorry, folks,

My business trip is taking up more of my time than I thought, so the next update will be on Friday now. I'll make up for it then,

For your consideration once more....

A reflective tale for the season in NightWatch...

A tale from the BA in The Princess and The Pearl...

And a tale from Mordaca's files of A Debt Repaid and A War Declared.

I'm travelling on business next week, so next update will either be Monday morning or Tuesday night - I'm not sure which yet.

What have you been reading...

It’s now a month since I started to track properly the activity on this site, so I thought I’d share some of the results with you.

We’ve had at least 11,200 page views over 1,789 visits – I’ve no idea if that’s a lot, but we average out at about 60 to 70 visits a day. That makes over 700 people from 40 countries – the US and the UK are the most common countries, but there seems to be a core following in Canada, Germany, Brazil, Italy and Australia. Among the more far flung visitors have been ones from China, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia – welcome to you if you are reading this.

Forty seven per cent of you come directly here, so thank you for adding KP Presents to your favourites. A further 35% come from links on other sites, such as the blog, Yahoo groups and other communities. The remainder come from search engines – mainly Google but others as well.

As far as content is concerned – all areas of the site are getting regular visits, but the most popular story from an incomplete survey in the last month appears to be….

Secured Again!

It’s interesting to see stories like Guests for the Weekend come up as popular – given it is what I call “A Drop of the Hard Stuff”, I am always surprised how popular it is. It’s also good to see so many of the contributed stories are popular – not just from Mordaca, but also those by Ed Overton and others.

The Salesman Comes is also proving popular – so once again, if you have a chapter to add let me know.

Now that we’re fully up and running on this, I’ll report back with a monthly update on activity, but for now – thank you all for supporting this site, and keep reading.

Going back to my roots

in a way with one of the two new stories to the site today.

First, let me offer a tale of dishonour amongst thieves in Doublecross.

Now, Navy Wives was a story I first read many years ago on wwarmachine's Mothers Tied dreambook. When I ran the Yahoo group, Jim from Michigan was kind enough to send it to me to post there, and I also had it on the first version of this site. It's long overdue for ti to appear here, so if this is the first time you've read it, enjoy.

A gentle reminder - I do encourage those of you who think you have a story to tell to write it and send it in for possible posting.

October drags on...

So let's have the first of a set of Halloween stories I have planned, in the form of Changeling.

Also, I am pleased to fill out another Reader's Request in the form of Shadow Dancing.

Finally, Mordaca has another tale of coming to in danger with Rude Awakening 2 - with a very special guest star...

Two for visiting

The Gentlemen Robbers just wanted to get in and out quickly, while the parents were away and the daughter was out. They figured without the daughter's friends letting themselves in, so Surprise Surprise another tale unfolds.

Also new today, in the Multiple Maidens section, we offer the story of The Rare Stamp, complete with embedded photo links.

Apologies Again

My laptop decided to go into an infinite re-boot loop, so updates will now take place tomorrow.

If it helps, I hope to have the first of a set of Halloween stories ready by the end of this week...

Into the box again

Four stories for today, each illustrating a different aspect of the site.

When the WABAC Machine gets warmed up, it oftn goes back to the seventies or the time of Jayes and Barty Rhymaes. Today it's the latter as we explore the tale of Jayes and the Masked Marvel.

Meanwhile, from the pen of Mordaca comes the story of The Decent Hired Guns.

From the archives comes the tale of The Plumbers.

Finally, I do occassionally do requests, and where possible I post them here. This is one such tale, but I've amended some details to protect the person who first requested it. What we have is a tale of a mother and daughter as they are forced to Wrap Up Warm.

More Monday
