Ameranth & Ash by Jessica Freely -- The Last Episode

xpost

Ameranth & Ash Episode 15 is up today on Friskbiskit:

http://www.friskbiskit.com/2009/11/my-entry.html

This is the last episode I'll be posting. It's been a wonderful experience and I
deeply appreciate the support of all the readers who have followed A&A. It's
been a great motivator for me to hear from you while the work was in progress.
Now, in preparation for submitting the story to a publisher, I am halting the
posting of new episodes and in one week (on 11/13/9) I will be taking all of the
Ameranth & Ash episodes down from my website.


If you would like to know where and when the completed A&A is published, consider

Thank you again so much for embarking with me on this experiment. I hope you've
enjoyed it as much as I have.

Ameranth & Ash by Jessica Freely -- Episode 14

The second-to-last episode of Ameranth & Ash is up on Friskbiskit today:

http://www.friskbiskit.com/2009/10/ameranth-ash-14.html

Ameranth is a vasai, born with both male and female characteristics, and the ability to heal. Ash is a chel, a member of the underclass. Ash gets caught where he's not supposed to be and is brutally punished for it, but when Ameranth brings him to his home and heals him, that is really breaking all the rules. What begins as an act of compassion grows into a bond of love and ignites sparks that could set Ameranth and Ash's whole world on fire.

Please note: The Ameranth & Ash segments posted here are from a work in progress.  They are entirely raw, with author's notes, missing names, different versions of the same paragraph, and all manner of grisly error. They also include explicit, non-heteronormative sex, and graphic violence. Next week will be my last episode, though the story does not end there.  I'll be pulling all the episodes down soon as I prepare the novel for submission to publishers.
