There is now a library full of great books written by our members..but where can you read what other people have said and where can you download them? You could search through the archive and find the PDF for the story but we now have so many writers it is almost a full time job stacking the shelves with their works. To save people time I'm going to promote a book every few days with a link to the download page in the new archive. First we start with the magnificent Amica written by Velut Luna with a great deal of linguistic help from Eulalia and publishing from Madiosi.

Here are a few comments from some of our members


Amica

Eulalia..... Well, Amica's become an important part of this girl's life, I'm apprehensive how I'll cope without her, it's been a wonderful voyage of discovery, thanks to Luna's wonderful imagination grounded in her deep knowledge of Pompeii, Roman life, and Italian literature.

cxslave.....Simply brilliant Luna!


Quiet Paul..... Amazing, all of it. Utterly amazing with so many twists and turns. Luna, you are a genius


Wragg134..... Luna pounds away at our senses and our emotions with every blow!

Whata piece of work!


Racing Rodent..... Oh Amica the Gods themselves protest your cruel and unjust treatment, hear their voices like the clash of distant mountains in the sky, they call upon their fellow Vulcan to avenge your indignities with smoke and flame, scalding ash and the molten fury of the stones


Operatic in emotion, dramatic in vision, intimate in characterisation a brilliant story this continues to be Luna, brava, brava, brava


JollyRei..... I remain rapt in this story. So awful and yet so engrossing. It is like a classic tragedy in its scope. Lovely, Ms. Luna.


Ascanio....... Greatest story ever told!


LittleSiss..... Wow!!!!!
Powerful !!!



Celticvirgin..... Can't wait to read more VL. xxx


messaline....

No need to close the eyes, velut : I'm astonished and ravished how you depict this world ; it seems that you were living it !!!


pkindenhaag.....

Wonderfully atmospheric and exciting!

It really is pure chance that Wragg134 is next on the roll of honour. He has contributed enough literary works to warrant his own library extension! Today's offering is The Chronicles of the Silver River. This is an omnibus edition consisting of Part One.....The Dark Princess, and Part Two.....Lord Vulcan, Master of Darkness. The story is set in a far distant land long ago...but fortunately Wragg has provided us with a map

The story is of course wonderful and told in Wragg's unique style....here's just a few lines from his description of Sciuridan the Dread

He couldn’t find a wife at all
His manners did so much appall
Plus rumours of his manhood, small
He had to go as far as Gaul
To find someone to wed!
Poor unsuspecting Messaline
Became this evil devil’s queen
Although she wasn’t very keen
Upon her husband, dread.

A healthy son and heir she bore
Shevak! A baby to adore!
The king, he chose to quite ignore
His son, whom he just never saw –
He loved him not a shred!
He dallied with a Princess, dark
And soon appeared more offspring, parked
By courtesy this dreadful shark - Sciuridan the Dread.

This edition runs to 155 pages and is profusely illustrated.

.................................................................................................................EULALIA.......................................................................................................................................................

Where do you start with what Eulalia has contributed to this site since becoming a member? I suppose logically the best place to start is at the beginning...
I doubt if many people can remember what they were doing on January 2nd 2011. Having just joined Eulalia posted her first poem...Crucifixa. This is what people said..

Jan 2nd 2011
Eulalia wrote

"Wow! As the new kid on the Cross, it's thrilling just to see my name with the fateful

word "condemned"! It's like all my fantasies are becoming real!

They go back to when I was twelve, when our teacher gave us a pretty strong, blow-by-blow account of the Crucifixion of Jesus. I clung on in fascination to every detail. Soon I was playing out little private stories with my body in the gym or the swimming pool. As I grew, I learnt more and more about Crucifixion - especially that the Romans crucified women and girls, and how they tortured us.

I love playing with words, painting word-pictures, so I've put what I've learnt into a poem,Crucifixa, that tries to imagine and express, as accurately as I can (historically, bodily and psychologically) the experience of a girl being crucified on the Ostian Way, outside the gate of Rome. I hope my Masters will like it - please correct me if there's anything that doesn't ring true.

Yours submissively"

Eulalia

"Sure, but in my fantasies, I'm always the victim. That's why it's so lovely being "condemned", I don't want to be an onlooker or even an Executioner. I wish I could opt out of being promoted!" (sulk).

Trust me to question the workings of The System - that's what gets me crucified!

But never mind - Melissa's found me this lovely avatar - thank's M! - so, whatever the small print says, I'll always go on being"

"Hey Love I have exactly the same issue.

But I look at it on the bright side, my status shows I'm interacting and helping to make the site what it is.

So dive in and help out.

I'm blushing - :oops: :oops: :oops: - and will need to log-off and unblush pretty quick,
expecting a visitor! Taking me back to Jan 2011 is very thought-provoking,
my decision (after much inward struggling and a stiff whisky) to sign up
was one that has made a huge difference to me and the way I see myself,
a very positive difference, and I'm very grateful to so many people here
who've become my crux-friends and encouraged me in so many ways.
Not just blushing now, starting tears.... :rolleyes: :D

thanks both of you - I think nearly all my complete stories (and translations) have been published by Madiosi as e-books now,
except for 'Lassie-Hunting in the Northern Forest'? My favourite, actually, but there's no hurry,
there's a splendid library in the Forum Archive and in Madiosi's e-book thread,
to suit all tastes! :devil:
