LTBSA: STORIES WANTED!

Post by Leem » Thu Apr 23, 2020 7:26 pm

As mentioned elsewhere, the LTBSA fiction site is now hosted by me, as a companion to the Pygmalion Syndrome site, at http://p-synd.com/LTBSA/index.html . As you can see from the front page, there haven't been any new stories since 2013(!!!), and with the Pygmalion Syndrome approaching its 20th birthday on May 29, it would be nice to be able to post some new stories in time for the anniversary.

Submissions should be sent in the form of .txt or .rtf files (no .docs, please, as they generate too much spurious code). Alternatively they may be posted on Google Docs. To be included in the May 29 update, stories or Google Doc links should reach me by May 15. This may seem a long time, but I don't know how many (if any!) I'll get, so just being on the safe side in case there's a lot. Stories received after this date will still be posted, however, and it would be nice to have a steady input thereafter to get the site back to a real going (sic) concern. The address is leem10538a &t hotm&il d0t c()m. Please include subject "LTBSA Submission" to avoid potential deletion as spam.

I just tried to submit one and my email bounced off. I don't think anyone else will have luck with what you wrote there.

Maybe typo'd when translating back into the real address? Try leem10538a followed by the usual suffix for hotmail.

I discovered this post thanks to NortherChill :)
I sent an email to Leem with some of my works without a clean format, to test them, stories and some captions that can be turned into short stories with images to illustrate them. If they are OK, I can adapt them to a clean html code to upload them, I would be honored to see my works in the webpage that was an ASFR paradise when I begun with this fetish ^^U

Hi, all. Well, I'd just like to thank everybody who's contributed stories so far. If I haven't yet replied to your e-mails I'll try to do so in the next few days.

As you know, I was hoping to get the update ready by the end of the month, but I'm starting to think it might take a little longer than that, due to the need to format all the material for HTML and prepare an index page for all the titles and authors. Rest assured, though, it will get done, and hopefully won't miss the deadline by more than a week... or three...! When I make a promise I'm always determined to keep it. Stay tuned for further news.

I'm putting together something to send in; since it's a collab with Zapped! have sent it for review. Yet, there's more: because of the slow evolution of this tale, I'm splitting it into 2 parts, with the 2nd section to come later (just, I hope, not 20 years later)...

Certainly! The more the merrier, I say. (It does help that I've finally figured out how to format stories for the site and have more or less worked out the legacy HTML coding...!)

Yeah, sorry about that, I'd been meaning to reply but as usual I got distracted...

OK, it seems like your e-mail got slightly lost in the crowd, but I've found it now. I'd certainly be interested in posting the stories, and if you can render them into simple HTML it'd be great. The illustrated stories won't be a problem either, so please feel free.

OK, so here's what's happening. Thanks to everyone for their fantastic contributions. There have been a lot more than I was expecting, so I'm afraid they won't all be formatted and indexed in time for the big update. The plan as it stands is to post all the stories that I've managed to prepare by Friday 29 May, and then roll out the rest every few days as and when they're ready for consumption, so to speak. Assuming the job doesn't consume me first...!!!

OK, gang, looks like the Grand Reopening will be delayed for a few hours due to temporary Feeling Like Crap issues. :( Hopefully tomorrow I'll be well enough to post the stories I've formatted so far, plus indices.

OK, everyone, thanks for your patience. The first update is now online and I think all the links work OK. I still have several stories to format and index, but there's a lively selection to be going on with... so to speak.

Sorry if anyone has trouble accessing the domain. It's an old issue with the host. I've really got to see about relocating...

That first link still throws it back to 2013 (?) Try this one for the anniversary update:

Thanks. You'll be pleased to hear there's more in the current inventory, and I'm getting it ready for posting as fast as I can.
