The Editing Bug Bites Too

Posted by Nora Quick on Wednesday, December 30, 2015, In : Site Updates & News 
Unfortunately, you can see it's been a month since my last post. Working a seasonal retail job around Christmas pretty much ate up all my time, and frankly time off was spent doing laundry, grocery shopping, and sleeping.

Now things have evened out, and you'd think I'd be hit by the writing bug, but alas, the editing bug got me. I will be uploading the next Fantasy Emporium story to literotica soon, but I am also working on the next Marly Jackson (rather, trying to get started) as my hands as ...

Better Late Than Never...

Posted by Nora Quick on Saturday, November 28, 2015, In : Site Updates & News 

I’m back, baby!

After a lot of soul searching, I’ve decided to come back to Literotica. I’m staying off the forums. In my wise old age I have learned that the Internet with its anonymity is a playground for assholes, and encourages the darker sides to normal people. As such, I’m no longer participating in forum posts or chains, but I will check it for any private messages/questions.

I miss writing for lit, connecting with my fans, and being able to write shorter stories instead of just ...

I'm Sorry, So Sorry...

Posted by Nora Quick on Monday, March 23, 2015, In : Site Updates & News 


I've been having some problems for a few weeks now. There was an account error with my bank and my account will be frozen for another week getting unscrewed. As such my payment for the service that allows the mobile version of this site didn't go through, and I can't get Yola to accept a one-time payment of a Visa gift card the way all my other bills have.

As such, I hate to say it, but it seems prudent to hold off on adding new rants and writing lessons until I get this fixed.

Hopefully this w...

Updates on My Free Stories

Posted by Nora Quick on Sunday, December 7, 2014, In : Site Updates & News 
Since 2007 I've been a loyal writer on Literotica. I've won 4 awards on there and had some great experiences (except in the forums. Sadly, like any site, the forum is just filled with trolls because the poor mods are vastly outnumbered). I recommend you check out Literotica.com if you enjoy erotic stories (and even non-erotic ones, there's everything there.)

I had predicted story orders before but of course there was a reshuffling thanks to the interminable work on making The Violin Case work ...

Dispatch From the Front

Posted by Nora Quick on Thursday, January 10, 2013, In : Site Updates & News 
Just a quick note today: the new Secret Desires chapter is up now on here as are chapters 5-8 of Love On the Run. They will be the last updates to these stories until March or possibly very late February.

I'm packing for my move west and finishing up the edits on the next Marly Jackson novel. As such my time for free writing is limited and will continue after a break this February.

The blog will continue and soon the creative writing lessons will begin again. Until then, happy reading!

The Abyss Looked Back, So I Punched It

Posted by Nora Quick on Friday, December 28, 2012, In : Site Updates & News 
Hello there, I have some good news: Chapter Fifteen of Secret Desires is up on Literotica.com now and I have a new story that will be posted there in 4-5 days, but is up on my site now.

Love On the Run is a little story I wrote just for me. I don't read much romance these days, but every now and again I'll write one just for me. Once it's up on Literotica.com people can vote, comment, or favorite it however they want, no offense, but I don't care. I'm sharing it because I know some readers wil...

Secret Desires Update

Posted by Nora Quick on Sunday, September 30, 2012, In : Site Updates & News 

Been having a few problems with Yola lately. The last blog post never got updated until now, and it screwed up Secret Desires.

That should be all fixed and finally Chapter Six of Secret Desires is up here, should be in literotica in a few days.

Tomorrow I'll have the next Writing 102 lesson up, until then, happy reading!

Out of the Past Part 4 & Quick Update

Posted by Nora Quick on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, In : Site Updates & News 

Out of the Past Part 4 has been uploaded to Literotica, but the entire story, all 4 parts, is live here now. It's not edited like my other short stories, I was hoping it would be novella length but didn't quite make it.

Also sorry for the slow blogging. As it happens when you're sick the second you're better you have to play massive catch-up so I did yesterday and today. I managed to do some writing but also in these 48 hours will have spent a combined total of 19 hours out of the house for wo...

A Birthday Note

Posted by Nora Quick on Wednesday, September 5, 2012, In : Site Updates & News 

Well, it's after midnight, so it's my birthday. I'm not the biggest birthday person in the world so I made my mom's chili today for tomorrow (no cooking tomorrow AND second day chili is always better than fresh). My brother took me hiking Monday and my father may stop by at dinner time with a card. That's about it, and that's how I like my birthday, nice and quiet.

In other news, the thing keeping me from blogging/writing much will be ending this week. Starting next week Writing 102 picks up a...

Quick Update

Posted by Nora Quick on Tuesday, July 3, 2012, In : Site Updates & News 

My apologies for not posting recently. I have been transformed into a komodo dragon. Actually, I had a small intestinal blockage which backed things up, got a massive infection that spread to another system. It got so bad the pain was off the scales and I walked myself to the E.R. because, damn it, I'm too cheap for an ambulance and I'm tough.

Good news is I got the treatment I needed to prevent sepsis and get better, but it left me alternately unconscious, in pain, or blissed out on morphine ...

Big Changes

 There are some big changes on this site. You may notice a new page on the navigation list to your left: Novels & Novellas. This page contains links to all my finished erotic novels & novellas (also available on literotica.com). In the future I will publish new chapters of works in progress the same day they are uploaded to literotica so you can read them 5 days in advance. However this will happen after Fey World is posted in compete on literotica. I hope you enjoy!
