I am kind of a moron on goodreads so perhaps this is not the sort of thing I'm supposed to be blogging about here? But I don't care because I'm SO EXCITED about this!

Captive Prince by S.U. Pacat (or freece) is going to be published! In ebook format (with sextras) and in paperback (sadly without said sextras).

Check freece's announcement at lj for more information...

I was really excited when I read that. For whatever odd reason, I read very little original slash fiction. As in, next to none. The only original slash book I own is one I randomly bought at a used bookstore and I never read online (because it was one of those pay-for sites, I think).

So this will be the first series I've actually been following online with an author who I think is a wonderful person and who writes an interesting story and where, now that it's going to be published, the very idea of it makes me exceedingly happy-- mostly for the author but also as a reader. I've never read and enjoyed a story online before and gotten to see the transition to print/ebook. So very exciting!

It's funny that I like Captive Prince so much because slavefics are really not my thing generally, and freece also writes with very little emotion/emotional attachment in most of the series which is also not generally my thing. But the story is well done and with the way it has grown over time I've become a definite fan of it.

Of course, this just makes me wish we could get to publishing even more... Honestly, the only reason I even have that on my To Do list is because people have been asking us for years and it's important to me to try to give back to interested readers as much as possible after they've taken so much time out of their lives to give to us by reading our story in the first place. If it had been up to me, ICoS never would have been shared online in the first place (because I didn't think anyone would read it/care), and I most certainly wouldn't think anyone would ever actually want to OWN it. What is this craziness. I don't even understand.

But then, when I think of it from the view of Captive Prince + publishing = me @ 8D!!!!, I do understand lol

LenaLena I am very glad you didn't get to make the final call on sharing ICoS online then!
