My highlights for this month, and what’s coming up next:

  • I posted early access pieces for all of my projects, and 20,000 words across my projects total.
  • Some of my favorite standalone updates include:
    • “Lifestyle Masochism #4 (Pressure Pointed)” and “24/7 High Protocol: Last Thing at Night” and “But You Could Walk Out Right Now” and “Being a Slave Isn’t Easy” (for Service Slave Secrets) (It was hard to pick, as I’ve been super inspired for this blog this month. But “Being a Slave Isn’t Easy” is now my most popular post of all time—eek!)
    • “On Age Dysphoria” and “On Conflating Skinny and Productive” (for A Productive Hannah, my newest project)
    • “On Sundowning, and Daydreams vs. Hallucinations” and “Want to Know About Schizophrenia? Ask a Schizophrenic” (for The Schizophrenia Diaries)
    • (And remember you can subscribe to an early access level—or any of those blogs—for updates throughout the month. Thank you to everyone who’s done so!)
  • ICYMI: I’m currently running a Kindle Countdown Deal on my book, Service Slave Secrets: Volume One. Just $1.99 at the time of this post. (Find my other books here.) Thanks to everyone who’s grabbed a copy.

Class bundles include the recording, written adaptation, and notes for that class, frequently with other resources. Or, as always, subscribe on SlaveClass for full access.
