In/Exhale is Back!

So, I know it's been a veritable eternity since I last posted here. After the recent incident with some material from my story being used without my permission, I debated not continuing to post here and just doing so on my website from now on.

However, after giving it some more thought, I decided to go ahead and keep posting here after all.

I know it's been awhile, so to refresh everyone's memories, I've written a brief "recap" of what's happened so far, along with listing some of the minor characters whom you may have forgotten along the way.

I probably have about three months' worth of (weekly) material ready (or nearly ready) to go, plus more in the works, so hopefully I'll keep you entertained all summer long.

One more thing - if you like my work and it inspires you, I'm flattered. Really. But I'd love if you talked to me about it first. Hit me up any time on twitter (@chiealeman) or via email (chiealeman [at] first. I'm happy to talk to and advise new and aspiring writers at any time, even if it isn't related to my own work. Even if your work is a completely different style from mine!

Hit the break to read the recap, and look for the first new installment next week! We have a lot of twists and turns ahead!

It Started in the Summer

I thought that since we wrote this in a fiction style that I'd post it here as well. I don't know if anyone reads this blog that doesn't read the main PD board, but just in case, here's this story that was posted there a few weeks ago. I think it's lovely, but then, I'm a little biased. :) Regardless, I hope you all enjoy reading it. :)

Devo Diary Update

Ok, here is chapter five!

In the previous chapter, newly empowered by discovering devotees, I placed a personal ad seeking a disabled guy in the local weekly paper, resulting in one disastrous date. Now see what happens with the second person who answers the ad...

Forget You! Update

You guys, this is my FAVORITE chapter of my story (if I do say so myself).  Not to spoil anything, but there's SEXY action, and a HUGE SHOCK at the end.  Have I got your attention with all that capital letters?  I hope so!  Please read:

Chapter 12 

Would love feedback!

(P.S. Happy Father's Day!)

"Unexpected" update - chapter 6 is up!

Here's Chapter 6 of "Unexpected". I've decided to drop the titles on each chapter, because I don't feel like I get them right and they're mostly annoying me. Hope you enjoy the chapter. :)

I didn't realize until today that I'm not supposed to post updates if someone else has already posted an update their story that day. I think I've avoided doing that (pure luck), but if I have I would like to apologize to the affected writers. I'm sorry, I should've read the guidelines closer

PS! Table of contents can be found here.

Devo Diary Update

Thanks again for the great comments. I really appreciate it!

Here is chapter 4. I jump forward by a few years, to the moment when I discovered the term devotee, and what happened after that.

Sorry for the problems with chapter 3, but it seems to be fixed now.

Devo Diary Update

Thanks for all the great comments!

Here is the third installment. Actually this is the original Devo Diary post I put up on Paradevo 10 years ago, about meeting a blind guy. If you were around back then you may remember it. I rewrote it a little to fit the continuity better, but for the most part it's unchanged.

You all have been saying you like it raw and honest, so here it is, extra raw. I've done some bad things. Some of you may judge me for this, so go ahead, judge away.
