What Next for "Taming a Tomboy"?

Kim, aka bottomgrl [ ], has written a very kind review of the first “Taming a Tomboy” series:
Taming a Tomboy, Part Three: Mama's Girl on Nov. 24, 2015 

This whole series is really sweet. I've been trying to figure out why I respond to these light humiliation and female "feminization" (or whatever this sexual interest is called) stories. There's a theme of shame and repression that really works for me, but as told here it doesn't go over the top with pink or "bimbo" fetishism, or aggressive sexual degradation, which lose me. I seem to remember hints that this story could go a little further. I'd love to see another volume. 
At present, I have in mind to write a story about a different tomboy undergoing a slightly more humiliating and significantly less consensual "feminization".  I don’t see any easy way to continue the "downfall" of Chrissy Malone, and would almost certainly start over with a new tomboy, possibly a self-identified Lesbian who would not necessarily surrender her identity as a Lesbian although she would definitely become less butch.
What do you think, folks?  What sort of tomboy-taming would you like to see next?
P.S.: I recently heard from the woman who is the real-life inspiration for "Chrissy".  Seems that the little tomboy has sufficiently tamed herself that she’s now engaged to be married.  My sincerest congratulations to her.


Academy for Difficult Girls Student File #13: Maggie

The 6th file is "Student File #13: Maggie" because it was a collaboration with the real-life Maggie. It's a special sort of story and I think you'll enjoy it. It still has the things that Academy readers enjoy: a grown woman is tricked into coming to the Academy (by a most unusual route this time), and is forced to live as a schoolgirl, to be trained to be the kind of "girl" her sponsor wants.
Maggie knew she was breaking all the rules by meeting a man she had met online, not in a public place but in a hotel room, and without any of her friends knowing what she was doing. The risks she was taking excited her. She was bored with her life and eager for something new.
When she found herself half an hour later, bound and gagged and closed up in a box, she wasn't where she had expected to be, but she definitely found it to be exciting. When she realized she had been loaded into a vehicle and driven out of the city, she thought maybe it was a little TOO exciting, but there wasn't much she could do about it. When she emerged from the box to be welcomed to the Academy for Difficult Girls, she didn't know how to feel, although being made to dress in a schoolgirl uniform and shown to the room she was to share with three other women who had also become Academy "girls" was definitely something new, all right.
At the Academy for Difficult Girls, women have no choice but to live as schoolgirls while they take courses like Cooking to Please a Man and Fellatio 101 to remake their minds to please whoever it was "sponsored" them as students. They receive cosmetic surgery (which they also have no choice about), to remake their bodies to please their sponsors as well. Now, it's Maggie's turn to get an Academy education, and to be transformed in some especially shocking ways.


Arcadia Berger Asks Herself Nosy Questions

Have a look for yourself:

Nosy questions like

Who are your favorite authors?
Neil Gaiman, Ann Leckie, Pamela Dean, Jo Walton, Gail Simone, Brian K. Vaughan, Paul Pope, Alexander McCall Smith, Hope Larson, Charlaine Harris, Lindsey Davis -- er, how long am I allowed to go on...?

Nosy questions like

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
An awareness that yesterday was a pretty good day, and today might be as well. The knowledge that the monster named Depression has been leaving me at peace much of the time lately, as I take my pills and (try to) carry on a healthy lifestyle.
It was a lot harder when I was carrying Depression on my back every day. These days, the bed gravity is only a little bit stronger than regular gravity, instead of five times as strong.

And questions you might actually find interesting, like

What are you working on next?
I'm going back to my "Taming a Tomboy" series to write a new story. Not a continuation of Chrissy Malone's metamorphosis, but the story of another tomboy getting in touch with her inner girly-girl. Chrissy may turn up as a supporting character, I haven't decided.

New Series: "Little Red, Werewolf Hunter"

Sarah Criswell gets out of bed at 3:00 AM to watch her favorite TV show, "Little Red: Werewolf Hunter", but sometimes she gets a little sleepy, and afterwards she's not sure if she really saw an episode or if she dreamed it.
"Little Red" is a series about an order of werewolf hunters, and one of their field agents in particular.  She hunts werewolves, and aspires to be promoted to the title of Woodsman, like her sort-of boyfriend -- but she also has a sort-of boyfriend who is a werewolf himself.  It's complicated.
One night, Sarah sees an episode that is not just naughty and suggestive, but blatantly erotic, depicting wolf-on-woman bestiality right there on the screen.  Surely she fell asleep and dreamed it, right?
In the episode "Founder Effect", Theresa, a werewolf, searches for her lover, Louise, who was captured by the Fish and Wildlife Service and dumped in a remote location with a male wolf -- a real wolf.  As long as Louise wears her radio locator collar, she will be unable to revert to human form.
Theresa seeks Louise out, and at last finds her, and is horrified to discover that her beloved has actually yielded to the lowly wolf's courtship.
Even more horrifying are the things Theresa must witness and take part in before Louise can return home.
[WARNING: This book contains scenes of bestiality between women and both werewolves and true wolves.  If you don't like zoophilia, this book is not for you.]
