August is, of course, a holiday month, but I again apologise for the fact there have been so few updates this month. Still, I have three new short stories and a relevant classic for you to consider today.

Firstly, it has been a while since we dropped in on Ginger Cavanaugh, so following on from a suggestion sent by Bayezid we offer a tale called The Finishing Touch.

Secondly, after a long delay we return to Portrait of A Lady, albeit to pause and set up the next stage of the story.

Now, sometimes ideas for stories just hit and they have to be told - as was the case when I considered a story From A Different View.

For the classic, we note that it is the August Bank Holiday in the UK, which means one thing in West London - the Notting Hill Carnival. So why not peruse the tale of Carnival Crime?

Finally, I have added two new links to our collection, and tidied it up a little bit. Remember, we are open to linking with like minded sites - drop me a line if interested.

See you in September.

Hi there

Firstly, my thanks to all of you who have been in touch with messages of support and even sympathy. My eyesight is almost back to normal, although strong light still hurts them a little bit.

So, while I play catchup, two contributed tales. Firstly, courtesy of Doctor George, the first stage of Staff Training for Soo in her new role as apprentice and assistant to Coco Aldington is explained. Your comments are welcomed on this - especially as to whether or not you would like to see a certain pair in this tale again...

Secondly, another tale from Golavus of Sara Philips as Sara Abandons Ship.

With luck, normal service will be resumed on Friday.

Although my eyes are improving. I'm still not up to long sessions on line. The next update will be Saturday 20th August.

Friday, 12 August 2011


My eyes have, quite literally, been burning for the last two days. I suffer from hay fever, and somehow got something in my eyes that has set off the reaction big time.

As a result, I'm sorry to say there is no update today, although I'll try and get a couple of guest stories up tomorrow if I can see clearly enough.

Coming Full Circle

When Doctor George and I wrote Crossed Wires, and the name Foscari was first mentioned, I had the inkling of a plan then as to how it would turn out. Much of said plan was unveiled in The Netterton Jewels, as well as What's In A Name? This week, we come full circle as Doctor George answers the question What's In A Title? For Mary Wolverton and Colette Aldington, this is a meeting over thirty years in the making...

Meanwhile and elsewhere, we see what happens when one well oiled criminal gang take a gamble, and hit a very feminine and very tough brick wall in a tale called Oops.

We also welcome back Simone and her gang, the Black Angels, as they show the way to go about Working Your Way Up.

More next Friday,

In The Summer Sunshine

July and August tend to be quiet months, but it is still gratifying to see more and more visitors every month. Let’s look at what you viewed last month...

We had an increase of about 15% on the previous month in hits – 35,541 page views from 4,075 visitors on 6,871 occasions, with 54% new visits. Looking at the map, we had visitors from the Dominican Republic, Panama, Cyprus, Sri Lanka and Saudi Arabia, as well as the usual countries, and one big surprise – a lot of visits from China. Meanwhile, on US watch, Wyoming and Vermont formed the barren wastes this time. I promise, here and now, that if we get a visitor from Wyoming I will write a tale especially for them – can’t say fairer than that.

The big bump this month was partly due to new visitors from the Uniform Stealing Broads community, so a big Hi to all of them. I’m working on a story for that group that should hopefully appear in the next month or so, holidays permitting.

Now, what did the search engines kick up this month...

Ankle length skirt punishment – Seventies Bound 2

She dressed in the unconscious guards uniform – Prescription for Peril

Gagged leather trousers – Lock-In

Tied wrists knot out of her reach bathroom – A Meeting of The Minds

Bank robber gagged her – Early Opening

“She gagged her daughter” – Heidi and the Birthday Surprise

“Masked woman”, scarf, nylon – Flattery Will Get You Nowhere

Foam gagged tape – Le Bal Masque

He put her bound squirming nude body in the closet – No Room for Amateurs

Kidnapped in bra and panties – Just Another Day

Stockings tied rope knot struggle skirt forced – Lady C

Women trying to talk to each other while bound with rope and gagged with tape – Mole Quest

So, without further ado, the envelope ... The most popular stories in July in terms of hits were:-

  1. Sara Gets Dolled Up by Golavus
  2. In The Country
  3. Amy’s Night In
  4. The Thrice-Captured Constable by Tull
  5. Indecent Proposal Chapter 3
  6. Game, Set and Match by JennyGagged
  7. The Three Ages of Gwen Part 1
  8. Cath’s Caff
  9. Knocking
  10. Jayes and the Wrong Hostage
  11. Project: Dottie Chapter 1
  12. Randi’s Rueful Idea by Charles Spencer

Of course, the picture in terms of average time spent looks a little different...

  1. The Coffee Morning
  2. Ladies in Red
  3. Amy’s Night In
  4. eSlave
  5. McKenzie and Marks American Tour chapter 3 by Gillian B
  6. St George’s Day
  7. Serpent in the Smog
  8. Snow Bound
  9. Rough Diamond chapter 4 by Gillian B
  10. The Search
  11. Explanations by Mordaca
  12. Off the Record by Mordaca

So, August is going to be quiet, but I have a ton of stories to complete and new ideas to work up, so have a good holiday wherever you go and new stuff will appear Thursday.
