    Billion Dollar Harem

    Okay guys, I’m back with a quick COVID-19 update. Well I ended up having to go into the hospital. My symptoms were all getting worse. Not only was I having trouble breathing and whatnot, but between the chills. body aches and nausea/vomiting, I was faced with the harsh reality that I needed the hospital. I spent nearly the past 6 days there fighting to get better. I’d like to say it was a nice steady recovery, but it really wasn’t. Round about my 3rd night there, my breathing became so bad they had to put me on a CPAP machine. Let me tell you, that was hell. It gave me a severe panic attack as I felt like what I was doing was fighting not to die… The next day I went to 8 units of O2 and I refused the CPAP machine after that. Luckily, that was when things started to turn around. The doctors and nurses really helped me, the course of treatment did wonders and when I woke up this morning, they decided to take me down to just 1 unit of O2. By midafternoon, they were talking about me going home. That is where I’m sitting now, writing you guys this message. I would have updated you in the hospital, but this site is blocked by their servers, go figure lol! I haven’t really gotten any work since this whole thing started, a month or so now. And, quite frankly, I probably won’t be anxious to dive back in right away. I want to take things easy and slowly get back into my routine. I expect I’ll be heading back to work early next month and that is when I plan to fully dive back into my writing, starting with the Secret Santa thing for CSL. Once I get that done, I’ll be back to work on BDH. Okay gang, I really just wanted to give you guys a quick update and to say thank you so much to everyone who commented something supportive or enthusiastic. I appreciate all the support and I look forward to getting back to work real soon. Till next time, -Mal P.S. I’m not fully recovered, but I hope get back to full strength real soon!

    Hey guys, Just on for another quick update. I just got my COVID-19 test results and I’m sorry to say that I tested positive. I don’t really know what else to say other than I am feeling a little bit better than when I wrote the previous post. But I’m not sure if that is just a function of how much Tylenol I’m taking… I can certainly say that this will impact my schedule. I’m in quarantine for 10 days. If I start to feel better, I might do some writing, but I’m quite sure that I’m going to be sleeping 10+ hours a day, like I have been too. So, I may or may not get anything done… Anyway, I just wanted to fill you guys in. I’ll try to pop on at least one more time before my quarantine ends to let you know how I’m doing. Thank you guys, as always, for all the support and I hope I can get back to writing again real soon. Till next time, -Mal
  3. <Fingers crossed> I went and got tested for COVID-19 today. I feel like trash though… So… yeah...

      Sorry about that, Mal. When you described your symptoms, I kind of figured. Hope you continue to be on the mend.

      I just got released from hospital today after 5.5 long grueling days. The bad news is I’m not fully recovered. I still have a bit of pneumonia in my lungs and am a little run down. The good news is that my doctors felt confidant to take me all the way off O2. Meaning that as long as I’m taking it easy my O2 lung saturation is sufficient to keep me going! Now I just need to rest and recover a bit more, build my strength back up and everything should work out. I do feel better, so that is good. (Much better than I felt going into hospital), I’m hoping now with  couple more weeks to recover I can get back to relative normality in my life… I’ll continue to keep you guys posted but I want to thank everyone here again who was pulling for me while I’ve been sick. It really does mean the world to me!

      I’m so glad to hear you’re on the mend! This is a freaking scary illness, and you do need to take it easy for a bit. But being home is the best medicine! :hug:

    Gonna keep it real brief today guys… I went and got tested for COVID-19 this morning. My job puts me a significant risk, and someone in our office tested positive just a few days ago. So… fingers crossed, but I’ve got a bad feeling about this… I’m feeling like absolute garbage, not sure how much writing I’ll get done while I’m sitting in quarantine awaiting results. Anyway, I just wanted to give you all an update. Obviously this development will likely further disrupt my schedule… I’ll let you guys know once I get the results. Hope to year from you all soon, -Mal P.S. Love the comments… I’m just too tired to address them at the moment.

    Hey guys, just a quick update! Okay, first off the vote. I hope everyone got a chance to cast a ballot for which celeb(s) they wanted to see in the chapter 51 scene. Sorry for not giving too much time on the poll, but I wanted to get started on things right away. It was actually a really close vote between three of the options, but I was remarkably surprised by how many votes some of the individuals got. A total of 108 votes were cast and everyone got at least 2 votes. Most all of the individual celebs got between 4 and 5 votes. Only Chloe and my poor Cara got less, each receiving 2. And sadly in the case of Cara one of those votes was mine lol…. (fyi you can’t easily see the results of a poll unless you vote. My vote would never actually count for anything but a tie breaker...) I found the support for Dove not unsurprising, but still interesting at 11 votes and Taylor got 6 votes. Next were the three multi celeb options. I was kind of sad to see Margot and Felicity only receive 3votes, but I suppose when faced with the more interesting option of having Felicity watch, its not too surprising. Also not too surprising that Cara/ Emma only got 5 votes, when they just had a F/F scene and have already had a threesome chapter with Alex. (I mostly added this grouping because well I love them both so much and just can’t get enough writing about them lol!) Finally, the last three groupings were where the poll got really heated. While Dove and Bella never got the lead, there was certainly a time where they were right there, close to tieing the vote up. The real competition was between Taylor/Margot (while Felicity watched) and Chloe / Ariana. For much of the poll, The Taylor/ Margot option was fast in the lead. Then like overnight, Chloe/ Ariana pulled ahead. And while things got close a couple of times after that, Chloe and Ariana never lost that lead. So there you have it, a quick recap of the poll. Your winners: Chloe and Ariana. Therefore, the next chapter will feature a threesome featuring everyone’s favorite Harem Master, his little girl, Chloe Moretz and the harems kitty cat, Ariana Grande. Should be a ton of fun to write and I can’t wait to get to it. I want to take a quick second to thank everyone from here who went over to CSL to cast a vote, I really appreciate it. Its so much easier to have a poll over there than to try and get people to respond on a vote here in this forum. So if you made an account to go over there and vote, thanks! You guys rock! Next, is some housekeeping business. I can tell right now that my schedule is going to go out the window… First, the company I work for just hired two new people and I am going to be mostly responsible for training one of them. Which means my downtime at work will be significantly compromised. Now, I still think I'll get some writing done and hope to stay mostly on track, but I think for now, I’m going to cancel my Sabrina Carpenter project. (makes me a little sad). The second reason for the delay is because I agreed to write a Secret Santa story on CSL. I did this for two reasons. 1) because I thought it would be an interesting opportunity to write something different, hopefully with a holiday themed and a celeb I’d not yet worked with. I can’t at this point tell you who I’m writing about, but I will say that it is someone I have written about before. 2) my second reason, is because I really wanted to have someone write me a story. As you all know, or might suspect, I have an unnatural obsession with Cara Delevingne. I think she is easily the hottest, funniest, coolest celeb on the planet. So naturally I want to read stories that feature her… Unfortunately there just aren’t that many, hence if I participate in this Secret Santa thing, I can both do something cool for a fellow fanfiction writer, and hopefully get a really hot story featuring my favorite celeb. My plan currently is to work on BDH 51 at the same time as I work on this Secret Santa story. The next result will likely delay BDH 51 some, but I still feel confidant I can have it out by mid-November or so. Please keep checking in, I plan to give an update when I get the chapter half way or so done. Okay, well I hope that catches you all up. Please feel free to drop in if you have any questions or comments on the poll or my up coming projects. I’ll answer what I can. Till next time, -Mal

    Hey gang, So I decided I’m going to hold a vote for which harem member(s) will be in the featured sex scene to be included in Chapter 51. I can’t really post the poll here, but if you got to CSL (Celebrity Story Library) you can find the vote in the polls section under the heading: Billion Dollar Harem Chapter 51 Sex scene. Not all possible combinations are represented, but there are a lot of possibilities. If you’re interested in having a say which celeb(s) will appear in the new chapter please head on over and cast your vote. *Edit* Figured as long as I’m here, I might as well address all the wonderful comments! Sazbi: Writing that Cara / Chloe scene was so satisfying. I had so much fun putting on display Chloe’s depravity, her broken mind as embodied by her little girl persona, and her need for attention / approval by seducing Cara, the closest thing she had, in that moment to an authority figure. It was also fun showing the contrast between Cara and Margot’s reaction to the little girl roleplay and how the difference between the two might show a glimmer of a shred of a chance that Cara and Emma’s relationship might just work out… As for Taylor and Ari… I can’t really say what will happen, even if I knew, which I… <section deleted>. But I can say this, there is no possible way the punishment room is being abandoned. As I stated in a previous entry, we are currently in a place where it won’t see as much use. But I promise you as we ramp up toward the end, the punishment room will absolutely come back into play. Alexandra and Kendall will enter the harem in the same chapter, I just don’t know if it will be in 51 or in 52… Time will tell. Thanks as always for the comments! Bill Friese: I’m sure it will all work out just fine…. Juan: I wouldn’t worry too much… lol. This is a happy little tale after all… Wait… maybe I’m thinking of something else… I’m sure Emma won’t mind. Yeah, I’m sure things are going to work out just great! Bella…. hooked on a harmful, addictive aphrodisiac? I’m sure that’s just fake news… You worry too much Desert: Honestly, Alexandra’s big beautiful eyes are one of the main reasons I picked her. I’m not the biggest fan of curvy bodies and I actually prefer smaller, perky boobs to bigger ones… So… for me, it really is about the eyes. Also, thanks so much for the compliment! ArcherNexus: It is kind of hard sometimes to balance the 9-1 female to male ratio, while telling a well rounded story, include every character and have those characters be enmeshed in significant relationships with profound meaning and not have a lot more girl on girl sex than any of the other options… I do appreciate the view point and the compliment though. I mean I suppose I could only feature sex scenes which include Alex, I feel that by doing so I would significantly limit the interactions of the girls in the harem and this is their story just as much as its Alex’s. As for Emma’s conditions, I have to agree, they are very interesting and I plan for many of them to impact the plot moving forward. (I’m sure you already guessed that...) The new girls will definitely have a dramatic impact on the stability of the harem. I hope to squeeze Alexandra into chapter 52, but if not I may just have to squeeze her a little later Okay guys, that’s it for now. Be sure to pop by CSL to cast your vote for the scene. The poll will only run for a few days as I want to get to writing it asap. Till next time, -Mal
  7. Holy word count, Batman! I was looking today, because I just posted chapter 50 of my main story, Billion Dollar Harem, and I just can’t believe how far this story has come! It blows my mind to think I’ve written an entire novel… of smut lol! At chapter 50, I’m at 711 pages and at over 375,000 words… of smut… lol! Its so strange to think when I started this story… holy crap 4 years ago now, that it would be this freaking huge! I want to give a huge shoutout to anyone and everyone who has given my little harem fic a read and especially to those who have reached out to tell me they liked it or to offer up some comment or criticism of its very immaterial material... Thank you!

      Average word count for an SFF novel is 100-115 k, so you’ve written a trilogy. :)

      If you are interested you can check https://www.barnesandnoble.com/blog/sci-fi-fantasy/statistical-analysis-wheel-time/ for some detailed statistical analysis of Wheel of Time. The only fault in the analysis would IMHO be the incorrect comparison with the Malazan books. Just comparing the main Malazan books without Esslemonts spinoff that is needed to get the full story is a bit unfair if you hunting for the longest fantasy series.

      That was a truly interesting read, Thundercloud. My favorite part was about the view points by gender. Since my story has significantly more female characters than male it would be no surprise at all to see women dominate the word count in Billion Dollar Harem. It does make me wonder though just how much of the story takes place from Alex’s (my main OC), POV. He is clearly one of the story’s main protagonists / antagonists I guess… lol. But he is the one introducing things into the lives of his harem that they must deal with. Yet, I feel much of the story is from a female perspective… Anyway, its interesting to think about, and makes me want to go and reread the Wheel of Time series...

    Hey Gang, The new chapter is up and even earlier than I planned! This one was kind of hard for me to get going. As you might imagine, the marriage proposal is a big moment in the story and it took me a while to figure out just the right way to present that difficult conversation between Emma and Alex. On the other hand, the sex scene was one of the favorites I’ve written. I’ve been wanting to write a tribbing scene for sometime and to do it with these two personalities who are both so freaking hot was…. well it was really fun. The other moments in this chapter with Taylor and Margot, with Margot and Felicity were also really great to write, fun moments that I think show the progressions in their character and in their relationships… Next chapter will feature a very long fast forward. For those of you paying attention, Kendall told Alex it would be two weeks before she could collect Alexandra and that was literally just a few days ago in the story. So, chapter 51 will briefly describe what happens over the next two weeks, so that we can get to the moment many of you have been waiting for, the introduction of Ms. Daddario! Depending on how much time and page space I use to get through the two week description, I may try to slide in her very first appearance on page. We’ll just have to see how things work out. I really want to set a scene in the harem for how those two weeks progress to properly illustrate the climate of the harem for when its final two occupants arrive. If that ends up taking a lot of space, which is likely, Alexandra’s first appearance will just have to wait until 52. I really hope you guys like this chapter. I put a lot of hard work into it, and I had a lot of fun working along side my editor doing the final edits live in google docs. The main reason the chapter came out earlier than I expected, was because we were able to wrap things up quickly by being online at the same time. I’m not sure how often that will happen, if ever, but I wanted to say this as a shout out to him and as a way of thanking him for his work. Okay gang, with all comments addressed in my last post, that’s it for now. I look forward to hearing from you all again real soon! Till next time, -Mal

    Hey gang, Very quick update here. Chapter 50 is coming along. I hope to have it fully written by the end of the month, (problems at work depending). Assuming I can make that deadline, I should definitely be able to get it posted by that first full week in October. But there is a slim possibility if I finish it early enough, it will be up by next weekend! So keep an eye out, the next chapter should be dropping very soon. Romavictrix: No problem. I am going to try to be a little better about engaging the forum again. I might not post every week since I won’t always have much to update. But I do plan to try and do a mid-way to post post… lol. Meaning that I hope whenever the chapter is half way done or so, to drop an update with an expected time table. We’ll see how that goes, but I’m hoping that engagements like that will help keep me motivated to write on nights where I might not feel like doing too much lol… Not sure if that makes sense. I’m really excited about the projects I’ve got up coming so I hope that you guys do have a busy season of reading… I’m especially excited about getting Alexandra on to the page, my Sabrina side project, and about wrapping up Going Gonzo. <fingers crossed> I can “stay on target!” Sazbi: Again, I do hope I can stay on schedule. As for Ari, I typically mention her coming out to greet the ladies as they stand in line because it is an easy way to remind the readers that she is there and that she’s been out in the room for a little while. I do like the idea of her having an interaction with someone after curfew. Its one of the main reasons I made her schedule work the way it does. Well, that an the idea that it helps maintain the illusion of her as a cat. I hope to work in a scene like that at some point. But I also want to work toward the ending, so basically it just kind of depends whether I can balance those two things with out having to force the issue. Great comment and suggestion! Hopefully it will go somewhere! Alright gang, that's about it for now. As I said, keep an eye out, chapter 50 shouldn’t be too much longer now. Till next time, -Mal

    Billion Dollar Harem

    Hey guys, I realized it had been a month since my last post, and I wanted to give you guys another quick update. Let’s see, first off, things are still pretty busy at work. As I stated above, I do the bulk of my writing at work and I just haven’t had that much time recently. I’ve been training new people and we’ve had a bucket load of policy changes… not to mention just general idiocy from the students on campus. So I haven’t had as much time as I would like. This is normally my busy time of the year, but with everything going on in the world it has been even more so. The good news: the new people are trained and things have started to get back to a small degree of normal over the last week or so. I have been making some progress with the new chapter. I don’t know if I’ll have it out by the end of the month. But I am hoping to have it mostly done and ready to send off to my editor by then. If things go well, maybe a week or so into October I’ll have it up and ready. The other bit of good news is that like many universities, we are going to have a long winter break and I plan to spend it doing a significant amount of writing. My goal is to complete several projects by the end of January / early-mid February. Here is a list: Billion Dollar Harem pt. 50 (early October) Billion Dollar Harem pt. 51 (late October / early November) Going Gonzo pt. 4 w/ Emilia Clarke and DD/lg (late November) Billion Dollar Harem pt. 52 (mid December) When the World Ends pt. 1 w/ Sabrina Carpenter (late December / early January) Billion Dollar Harem pt. 53 (late January) Going Gonzo pt. 5 the finale (mid February) Obviously this list is subject to change. It is very ambitious but I’ve been kind of itching to write these past few weeks and I hope with the down time over an extended winter break I can make all this happen. I guess we’ll just have to see what happens, but I thought I should let you know what I plan to have in the works. FYI, I expect BDH 52 to feature the introduction of the final celebrity. Also, When the World Ends is a very dark story I’ve been tinkering with here and there for a couple months. It has Sabrina Carpenter in it. I’ve been dying to write something with her for a long time now so this project is of special interest to me. Finally, the finale of Going Gonzo will complete the “story” as it stands. Going Gonzo is mostly about the porn, but there is a very loose story taking place and this will wrap that up. The celeb and scene which it will feature has yet to be decided but when I get ready to post the poll, I’ll let you all know so you can go and vote. Keep in mind that it too will feature some very dark scene tags… So if you’re not into that make sure to avoid it. Okay I think that’s about it. There have been so many great comments, I’ll take a moment to address those, and I’ll be done rambling… at least for this post… Well: Let’s see, your question is complicated. If I could take ANYONE I wanted, I guess I’d take some mechanics and engineers so we could live comfortably on the island till we could figure out a way to escape. If your question is which celebs I’d like to live on an island with as the only man then, lol here is my list: Cara Delevingne, Emma Watson, Saoirse Ronan, Dove Cameron, Elsa Hosk, Sabrina Carpenter, Alexandra Daddario, Taylor Swift, Freya Allan, Margot Robbie, Ariana Grande, Kiernan Shipka, Chloe Moretz, Kendall Jenner, Felicity Jones, Alexina Graham, Madison Beer, Isabella Merced, Mackenzie Foy, and Bella Thorne. That is my current top 20 so it seems pretty straight forward. Juan: We’ve had a ton of policy changes and with a very small security force the problem has been enforcing them. Most partying on this campus has been shut down expeditiously, which means nearly all parties are taking place elsewhere, off campus. But we have had problems with people not wearing masks and maintaining social distancing. (Go figure getting horny college kids to soical distance). We have had some covid cases, luckily we are a fairly small community or I am quite sure things would be far worse. I predict we will either shut down soon, or our quarantine rooms will be packed till November when they go home… ArcherNexus: I saw the tabloid pics of Emma. The images seem real, but nothing we haven’t seen. That short video of the hack on her phone… when she’s in the bath tub… oh dear lord! I am looking forward to Lost Girls and Love Hotels. I think it will be a good movie. I loved Takehiro Hira in Giri/Haji on Netflix and I’m sure the movie will be great. Plus… you know, topless Alex… lol. Guest Gillian: Thanks man! I really appreciate the compliment, my friend. It really helps to motivate me knowing there are fans out there who really appreciate my work. I try hard to write my stories in a way that they are grounded in reality. Where I’m writing fiction and not just my fantasies laid out on a page. I think there is an important distinction between creating a fiction, a story with plot and motive and character arc and not just a stream of consciousness fantasy. Anyway, thanks so much for the kind words and I hope you enjoy the stuff I’ve got in the works. Zyther: I don’t know Sommer Ray. I do love Madison Beer, and I might write something with her in the future, but as for BDH the cast list is set. Once the final two ladies come in that will be it. We’re ramping up towards the ending and it would be far too complicated to add anymore ladies. Desert: Thanks man. I have tried to take more time for myself with everything going on. Not easy, but everyone needs me time. (not the kind with lotion...lol). But thanks, I appreciate the sentiment. That said though, I am itching to get some new work to you guys and I hope to do that real soon. Thanks again for the comment! Alpa: Oh boy! I just wish I could tell you everything I have planned…. Rest assured I do not believe you will be disappointed! Sazbi: I have some ideas in mind for Taylor, don’t you worry! But I do think she is plenty open to almost anything at this point. I think her one woman sex show more than proved that! Anyway, I obviously can’t go into specifics at this point, but Taylor will definitely have some featured moments before the story comes to an end. Alright gang, as I promised this is the end of my rambling! Till next time, -Mal

    Billion Dollar Harem

    Just wanted to throw a quick update your way. Things at work and in RL have been pretty hectic lately. My job is considered an essential position and I cannot work from home. I won’t go into all the details, but there has been a lot going on here recently that has, unfortunately required me to spend time actually working… Since I do a significant amount of my writing from work during down times and I just haven’t had that much of it the last couple of weeks, I have serious doubts as to whether or not I’ll make my goal of chapter 50 being out by the end of the month / early next month. I am working on it here and there when I can, and maybe it will still happen. But I just wanted to give you all a heads up so you don’t think I’ve gone rogue again should I not produce something in that time frame. As always, I appreciate your patience and I hope to have an update for you guys real soon. Till next time, -Mal

    Billion Dollar Harem

    Hey guys I’m back again! This time, I don’t have a chapter of Billion Dollar Harem for you. I know you’re disappointed, but I felt like working on one of my other celebrity projects and seeing as Episode 3 of Going Gonzo was already partially written, I decided to work on that. As some of you might remember, this story features a heavily focused 2nd person POV and both its major theme, in this case anal, anal and more anal as well as its featured celebrity, in this case Peyton Roi List are determined by fan polling on a different website. If you wish to take part in future polls (there won’t be one for a while), let me know and I’ll direct you where to look. In any case, I think this chapter is ridiculously hot and I’m very happy with how it turned out. Please feel free to let me know here in this thread if you want to talk about it. In other news, I’m in the very early planning and preliminary writing stages for BDH chapter 50. I have every intention of making that my next work to release. I can’t really give any kind of firm time table on when that will be as 1) this is the time of year when my job becomes unpredictably busy, and 2) in general, I’m trying to not put so much pressure on myself to work when I don’t feel like it. Over all with this new philosophy I think I”m working less often, but getting more done when I do work… so… hopefully that’s a good thing. Although I won’t commit to a firm date, I ‘m hoping that by very late August, early September ish, I’ll have it ready for release. So check back around then if you’re just here for BDH (no worries at all if that is the case . I am going to try to be around a bit more often for comments, but I will probably be waiting till there are 3 or more before I sit down and respond. I am checking in nearly every day though so if you want to ask me a question, or just drop a comment, I will try to respond in a timely manner. Anyway, going to respond to the couple of comments here now, and then I’ll let you get back to your regularly scheduled whatevering… ArcherNexus: I agree that defiance can and can often be very hot. The problem is with how realistic it is to be completely defiant, knowing what’s in store for you when you don’t behave and knowing that escape is basically impossible? See what I mean, its like even if Ari, or whoever hated where she was and what she was being forced to do… behaving even just pretending to be what Alex wanted is far and away easier and better for the girls in every way than being defiant. I think that many of the girls, especially those introduced in the first batch are basically too used to complying, too used to taking the easier route that they almost believe they’ve made many of these choices for themselves… I mean that’s what Stockholm Syndrome does to a person. For some of the others, like Bella, Arcadia has warped her brain beyond fighting… I’m sure there are some, like Felicity, Ari and Dove who, if given the choice would gladly go back to their old lives. Even if Ari loves being a Cat, I’m sure she would much rather be a cat at her own multi million dollar house than as a prisoner in some far off other place. But I’m sure she and every other girl in the harem knows that fighting back is compete and utter insanity. I guess what I”m saying is once you know how impossible it is to escape and once you find out how horribly brutal the punishment for misbehaving is, why on Earth would you do anything other than conform when conforming is so much less horrific? ...And yes, if there was a girl who just couldn’t get it through her head to behave, like Bella, Alex could just resort to using Arcadia to bend her to his will. Juan: Thanks for the congrats! That is a huge number and I really honestly couldn’t be more blown away by the response this story has gotten over the years. I know I’ve gotten to the point where I enjoy writing the plot more than the sex. The sex is hot, but it gets kind of repetitive, even with the many varied acts I’ve depicted. Thank you for the compliment and the kind words and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the story as we march on toward its ending. Alrighty gang that’s about it for now. Please do check in if you want to comment on Going Gonzo or any of my other works. I look forward to hearing from you all! Till next time, -Mal

    Okay guys, I’m back for the promised update after not getting nearly enough sleep. Oh and BTW! The story hit 250,000 views today! I can hardly believe it! Thank you guys for getting me there! Before I get into the business of talking about the new chapter and the next, I want to say something real quick, for those of you who haven’t followed this thread in the past and are maybe just now joining us, or I suppose, even for you guys who might not have read ever post. I suffer from problems with my mental health. I go through bouts of depression, lethargy and insomnia that sometimes make it very difficult for me to function in the real world. Its the reason I read, or play video games and yes, even why I write, they are all escapes from reality. I went over many of the reasons why I went through such a long break with no updates and no explanation of why I was gone and I just want to assure you guys that while those feelings of validation and not being sure if this is worth it, were certainly a big part of the reason mostly all comes back to my mental health. I often struggle when there isn’t an immediate reward involved. Its why, right after a new update drops, I’m much more engaged… Its also one of the reasons I’ve struggled so hard to work on a for profit book that I could sell and make money on. Writing 150 or 200 pages with no validation or feed back is a difficult prospect for me. I am still working on it, who knows if something will ever come of it but… I digress. I’m mentioning all of this because I want you all to know how much I appreciate all the support you guys have given me. I appreciate how patient you’ve been and the words of encouragement telling me to take all the time I need and what not. I also want to make sure you guys know that if I go a while without an update or without saying anything in the forums that it has nothing to do with you. Quite the opposite in fact. Without you guys I know I wouldn’t come back and work on BDH or hit the forums to write responses to questions. or whatever. You guys are the reason I do this and without your comments or questions supporting me I can guarantee I wouldn’t have it in me to continue doing it. So please keep doing what you guys do. Read the new chapters, maybe pop on if you have the time or feel like it and tell me what you thought. Even a simple “Loved the new chapter,” is something I see and believe me when I say I couldn’t thank you enough for taking your time to tell me how you feel. Well… enough of that lol on to the new chapter. From what I’ve seen, everyone is really enjoying it. I am glad you guys enjoyed the tension at the end. I worked really hard to make that scene believable and tense. I really wanted you guys to be hanging on every word wondering if Alex was going to fly off the handle, or what was going to happen. This moment is one I’ve had in mind for the story since near the beginning. Almost everything in this chapter is something important to the plot and to what will come and it was very important to me to capture the position Emma was in when Alex popped the question. The sex scene was a question mark for me at the end of the last chapter. I wasn’t sure what to do. In the end, I decided that I really wanted to capture the affection Emma and Cara were developing for each other. That in turn led me organically to Alex’s thought process of “well if I can’t talk to Emma, I might as well go and apologize to Ari.” Knowing that it could only help him to get back on Emma’s good side. I also made a calculated choice put two scenes in and make them shorter that way I could fit in both without the story dragging as a result. I think it worked out well and… If I do say so myself, I really love the imagery in the Emma x Cara scene . I’m sure most of you know how much I adore them and that adoration made that scene so easy for me to write…. As for Chapter 50, I have a lot planned. Obviously I need to wrap up the proposal. But I also need to set up a time jump so that I can get Alexandra into the harem. If you remember from chapter 45, Kendall told Alex that she needed two or three weeks to get Alexandra ready. That was 2 days ago lol… So I plan to have a big time jump. In fact it just might come to all of chapter 51 being dedicated to a massive fast forward sprinkled with a bunch of very short sex scenes. But until I really make some progress on chapter 50, I wont’ know exactly how things will play out. If you’re wondering though I very much plan to have Alexandra’s big entrance to take place in chapter 52, because even if things happen more quickly, the scene I have in mind for her is pretty huge and will take up a chunk far to big for me to try and cram into an earlier chapter. Okay, I feel like I’ve rambled far too long now lol… Let me address your comments and I’ll wrap this up. ArcherNexus: The main reason for the difference between that A and B list are that if I was to recast BDH and write a new version of it with a similar scenario, there are some celebs that I’ve never or hardly worked with that I would want to include. I agree the A list is better because it includes almost all of my current very, very favorite celebs lol...However, I have to disagree with you that none of the girls have consented or enjoy their place in the harem. Taylor is fully on board, and I think there is plenty of room to argue that Chloe, Emma, Bella, and maybe even Margot are right there too. Even Ariana I think has really embraced her role as kitty. I would say that everyone has a few reservations sometimes, but that is just life. Even people who “have everything:” money, a sexy partner and a job they love still have problems and complain. That’s just the way life is... And for the upcoming nude scenes I’d have to say the one I’m most looking forward to is Saoirse’s she is, after all, the only one we haven’t seen before. But on a side note, every time and I mean every time I see that scene in The Wolf of Wallstreet where Margot walks out of the room fully naked, my jaw hits the floor… Sazbi: First let me assuage your concerns… I abso-fucking-lootly plan to include a scene where one of the girls has sex with Ari when she’s dressed up like and behaving as a kitty. I’ve had that thought in my head for a long while now, probably since I brought her in and just haven’t found a good opportunity to insert it. Believe me when I say I think it’ll be just as hot as you do... As we ramp up toward the last dozen or so chapters (who knows how many it will actually take for me to finish) the tension in the harem should mostly be on the rise! Romavictrix: The proposal (not the actual wedding (should it come to that), will definitely be resolved in the next chapter. I’m glad you liked the chapter, and Alexandra is on the way! I’m glad you’re excited for her. I know I’m looking forward to writing her first scene! Well: Oh yeah! The story hit 250,000 views! I am so excited. As to the question can I believe it… Well, on the one hand, I knew I would get there with the release of this chapter. But on the other. If you’d asked me when I first starting writing this I’d have said there wasn’t any way I’d ever hit a mark like that! I honestly didn’t think anyone would want to read this story. It started out as a fantasy I used to play out in my head when I was a teenager…. lol and now its a huge deal! Alright ladies and gents, I feel like I’ve rambled on enough… If you have any other comments or questions on the new chapter or anything else I guess for that matter, please post it up. I’ll try to be around the next few days to respond. Till next time, -Mal

    Billion Dollar Harem

    Hey guys, just thought I’d check in again to address the comments since there have been a few since my last response. ArcherNexus: I really appreciate the vote of confidence I’m glad that you think I have what it takes to write a serious novel, and I have to say the original project I’m working on now I can tell you is a huge, serious project that could take years to fully finish… I feel obliged to point out though that, in my opinion, writing is less of a talent and more of a skill. Its something to be developed. It does however require patience, but discipline I think only contributes to your overall productivity. I mean think of BDH its about 700 pages right now. There are writers who pump out a novel like that almost every year and BDH has taken four. And this new project has the potential for much much more… I’m almost a little intimidated by the potential scope. But I plan to start small and work from there. I’ve already created a backstory of about 10 pages to build on and from there I’ll start on the actual story, trying to keep it small, at least in the beginning. As for Alexandra’s first scene… I wish I could tell you more. But all I CAN say is that I’ve had a punishment room scene in mind ever since I decided on her as the final choice a long time back. It should be hot… I hope that’s enough lol… This is a very interesting question. I’m not sure there is anything I would change… per say… (I don’t regret any of the ladies I’ve brought in if that’s what you meant). The main thing I would make different however, would be the passage of time. At this point in the story, I think it would be much more believable if we were at more like 6-9 months into the first celebrities’ captivity than the 46 days that we’re at currently. I like the characterizations I’ve come up with though I admit I have struggled to set each girl apart from the others, to give each a unique feel and arch. With so many ladies and such a limited scope of activity I definitely think that has been one of my biggest challenges… On a separate note, your question did make me ponder one of my own. Basically I got to thinking who would I cast in BDH if I were to a) start completely over (i.e. if I had never wrote BDH in the first place) and b) who would I cast if I were to write BDH starting today (assuming that I’ve worked with the ladies currently in BDH). And, because I like lists… here are those two. Billion Dollar Harem Cast List (if I were starting from scratch back in 2016) (Not necessarily in the order they would appear) Emma Watson Cara Delevingne Margot Robbie Taylor Swift Saoirse Ronan Dove Cameron Alexandra Daddario Elsa Hosk Gal Gadot Ariana Grande Alexina Graham (I didn’t know who she was in 2016 but I love her as the only redhead) Billion Dollar Harem Cast List (if I were starting today (2020) and had wrote BDH back in 2016) (Alas there will be no redheads….) (Also not necessarily in the order they would appear) Emma Watson Cara Delevingne Saoirse Ronan Sabrina Carpenter Alexandra Daddario Elsa Hosk Kiernan Shipka Zendaya Coleman Isabella Merced Freya Allen Madison Beer As to your question/comment about Saoirse Ronan… God I wish I could have fit her in to this story. She is now one of my absolute favorites. But by the time I really started to consider her I had very limited space left, basically the last two spots. I wanted to do a vote for one, and I needed Kendall for the story so… yeah, she got left out . But I am definitely glad I could raise your opinion of Cara. I like Kendall and Ariana, but God… there is just something about Cara that really gets my motor running. I think she is way underrated in the celeb fanfic world and that brings a tear to my eye. I’m sure it has something to do with her infectious personality, a killer smile, bright sexy blue eyes and that body type that I just love so much… Anyway… I digress. I admit, I had to do a bit of a double take with your last comment. Margot, Saoirse and Alexandra are doing new (or first time) nude scenes? To that, I have to ask, When, Where and how much? . Well: Glad to hear from you again my friend, its been a while! Glad you enjoyed the chapter and the backstory / info dump on Arcadia. As for Taylor, it has not yet been documented in the story whether she has been given / slipped the drug at some point… Perhaps in time we shall see. Finally, I don’t have plans for a nightclub room or an ABC party, but I do have something in the works (based on a comment some time back) that should make everyone very happy… at least I hope. Romavictrix: Glad to be back! I really appreciate the sentiment. Sometimes it is very hard to motivate myself to work on BDH knowing how much work is still ahead on it. But, knowing you guys really want to know how it will all turn out combined with how much work I’ve already put into it and I’ve got great motivation to finish it. It is great to know that I’ve already sold one copy lol! I will however say that this current project is in a very early stage, and promises to be quite a huge undertaking. As I said above I’ve got 10 pages of just background / world building info already and that isn’t really done yet. I hope though that this project will be a unique combination of serious sci-fi/fantasy and erotic novel like people have never seen before. I have been working on BDH and this new project quite a lot lately. So here’s to hoping I can keep up a good pace. Well gang, that’s about it for now. As I just mentioned, I have been working on BDH and my new project quite a lot and I think I am well on course to get chapter 49 out sometime near the end of the month. So if you’re following along, look for it around then! Take care everyone, wear your masks, and I’ll talk to you all again real soon! -Mal
