August Renfelt is the E-book Author of Erotica too niche for ordinary commercial publication. He writes in both in the Female Dominant and the Shemale Dominant genres, and uses contemporary, science fiction and fantasy settings for his stories.
He firmly believes that Niche Erotica should be clearly labelled. Shemales does not pop up in his Femdom stories without warning and he goes to great lengths to tag his stories as precisely as possible. Should you feel these tags inadequate, by all means add some of your own to help other readers find or avoid his stuff according to their interests.
He also believes Erotica should be entertaining, and so values conflict, the outrageous and spicy situations over realism. He does use gritty realism on occasion so as to anchor his stories in something recognizable, but at the end of the day his stories are fun escapist fiction and nothing more.
He has a website, www.evilbedtimestories.com, uses too many commas, and sometimes feels silly referring to himself in the third person.

I just finished this story.
I picked it up on the basis of liking August's writing despite the fact that the 30% preview was not to my taste, and I'm glad I did. For good or ill, everything in the preview available is essentially setup for the remainder of the story, of a war against the "New Women" being lost by guile while western civilization is concentrating on fighting in the trenches. Unfortunately, that means the preview is virtually useless for judging the remainder of the story.
As femdom erotica it's not as strong as, say "Needles", which didn't need the setup, and I found the "New Women" a bit sociopathic/ruthless for my taste, though that perspective is skewed by the 'propaganda' of the western side of the war. Still, while I have fantasies of an amazon super-serum altering the balance between men and women, in my fantasies women that liked and respected me before still would like and respect me afterwards, and one doesn't get the impression that's the case among "New Women".
Flipside? There is quite clearly another perspective, and a backstory here, and frankly I'd love to hear the full story, how things got to this point, et al.
All in all - if you like either mindcontrol femdom or amazon femdom, the last 2/3rds are definitely worth the price of admission, and I really hope to see more in this series to flesh out this timeline.
