Stories to be removed from Literotica

After a lot of soul searching, I have requested that all my work is removed from Literotica. This was prompted by yet another example of copyright theft, which I know many other authors have experienced. If anyone wants a final look at any of the stories posted there, you probably have about five days before they disappear, but be reassured – after a bit of editing a lot of them will be back on this site in the future. xx

    I will certainly miss them all, but I understand the reasoning behind what must have been a difficult decision for you to make. Will you eventually publish them all do you think?

      I may use parts of some stories to make new ones, but definitely hope to publish all the Alex and Conor stories eventually. I may combine Warlock and The Coven to make one, longer story – but they all need work!

    You would think a website as large as Lit would take more steps to protect their authors. It really is a ghost town anymore- very few good writers post stories, at least in the m/m category. By Googling it, I found my original Dreaming of Dax series posted on an overseas porn site, so I imagine trolls probably read all the erotica and just pick stuff up. That was the reason why I took most of my works down but I may have to reevaluate taking it all.

      I went for the all or nothing approach. Sounds like we’ve had similar experiences – I wish I’d dug around earlier because I suspect its been going on for a while.

    First I love all your stories, but Stroke Rate and NSFW is becoming my all time favorite along with Black Dog, I sorry to see you go from literotica but so glad I found you here. Second where can I order your books and can they be shipped out of the USA, I live in the Caribbean and don’t get to the states but once a year and honestly don’t usually have the time to hunt them down there.

      Hi Sugah – how wonderful to live in the Caribbean! I’ve visited the Bahamas, Tobago and Jamaica but would love to see more.

      None of my books are currently available in print, just as ebooks. Print versions will follow but I don’t have dates yet. Amazon International doesn’t list anywhere in the Caribbean as a shipping destination, but I believe Barnes and Noble ship everywhere and the books will be available from them too.

      Best wishes from a cold and soggy England!

    Believe me, I *know* how hard that was for you. But honestly, this was probably a very wise move on your part.

    I’ve hardly been on Lit for ages, the fact they do so little to protect their authors hard work from those thieves really gets to me 😦 I can appreciate what a difficult decision this was for you but it’s definitely the right one.
    I’ll look forward to reading your stories again on here 😀

    It’s your work so you can do whatever you want with it..forget Lit…ok…maybe, I’m being harsh since I found you there but still. I barely go there…maybe, once a year is all. I’m looking forward to reading, “Mountain Rescue” from TEB.

      Hi Lenny, yes there will – it’s half a story at the moment that I intend to turn into a full-length book. When I get started on the second half it will appear on the blog first. LM
