Update: Unfortunately, due to a number of factors, I will not be continuing this project. However, I strongly encourage you all to pay it forward yourselves!
Deviants so far who have received premium memberships as part of this project:
Thank you sososososo much to namenotrequired for helping me to promote this project!
Greetings! I am posting this to let you all know I have decided I want to try to pay the premium membership love forward, and so I am looking for donations to go toward buying premium memberships for other people You can find the donation box on my front page. PLEASE DONATE! I'll need lots of help - all contributions are appreciated, no matter how small
That's part one, here's part two:
I'm seeking nominations for extra-special deviants, especially those who are really involved in the community, who don't already have a premium membership. If you'd like to nominate someone (I will accept self-nominations, though I look extra-carefully at those), send me a note with the following information:
~The nominee's name
~Thumbs of three pieces from their gallery
~What kind of community events have they participated in?
~Links to any groups they admin/contests they've run/features they've posted. I know there are also a lot of people who are active through the forums, so let me know if they've been really active there, as well.
~If you think they do really excellent critiques, link me to a few!
~Why YOU THINK they should be given a premium membership.

Preorder Now: The Crawling Moon
Hi there, everyone! I have some very exciting news to share, if you're a lover of horror. You will soon be able to read my short story, "The House of Coiled Earth" in the anthology The Crawling Moon: Queer Tales of Inescapable Dread (Neon Hemlock Press, 2024). It is a trans cosmic horror story about a young man who returns to his haunted family home hoping it will eat him (sexually), and learns there are a lot of things he doesn't understand about his family and its relationship to what, actually, the house is. It is such an honor to be included alongside some of the heavy-hitters in this TOC. Even if you don't pick it up for my story, I highly recommend you grab a copy, it's gonna be sick. Expected to release in February, preorder now! My account has been pretty dead of late, largely because I am actively trying to get my work published in lit mags and anthologies, and posting my work here counts as published, so it would disqualify me from most submissions. I am also opposed to
A Fistful of Thorns
Happy Halloween, everyone! This year for National Novel Writing Month I'll be working on a novel that I started in the spring, tentatively titled A FISTFUL OF THORNS. You can find more details on my NaNoWriMo Project Page !!! You'll be able to hear the most updates about AFoT over on my Twitter. I'm going to try and be more confident this November and actually post lines that I like. See below for a portrait I did of the main character and a short excerpt! A FISTFUL OF THORNS is adult, secondary-world fantasy. UPROOTED meets UNDER THE PENDULUM SUN in a world inspired by 1830s Europe, where magic used to exist but has died out for some reason

With Hands in the Shape of the Sea
Greetings, everyone! This is a little heads-up to talk about a new story I'm working on. I am writing a novella during Camp NaNoWriMo tentatively titled "With Hands in the Shape of the Sea," in which a Victorian spiritualist encounters Norse witchcraft and doesn't quite know what to do with herself! This is a historical fantasy queer romance work-in-progress! I will be limiting deviantArt posts to excerpts, because I hope to publish the story at some point. If you would like the full (terrible WIP) synopsis, check out the "Camp NaNo" link on the left! ~Excerpt~ “Who has called me here?” the woman sighed, in a rasping voice
