First of all, I would like to apologize very deeply to everyone, especially my guest authors, for the abruptness of this news.
I have made the personal decision to move on from this area of my life. There were a number of factors. A waning communication (and in one case, strife) with close associates. A struggle with both the motivation and energy to write. However, the ultimate reason would be that the time has simply come to do so. I do not know of many writers of internet erotica who have kept at it for a near-twenty years, and from my own view, I have overstayed my welcome in doing so.
I would like to give a parting thanks to every author, both on the Realm and off, whose works brought me enjoyment over the years. You know who you are, because I would have sent you numerous emails telling you so! As I have mentioned once before, I want to give a particular thanks to Taz, who was always willing to provide enthusiasm and assistance to my efforts, and The Goddess of Death who was a great and invaluable online friend in so many instances outside of just erotic stories.
In closing, I would like to say that this hobby only ever was about pushing the boundaries of my overactive imagination, and I want to thank every reader who both understood and respected this. Imagination and fiction are wonderful things, and I look forward to finally exploring other aspects within them, rather than being tied to just one.
