Aida: An Idol Romance

 

Aida: An Idol Romance is a light-hearted and playful take on lesbian relationships set on a far future world dedicated to entertainment—primarily idols. Not got much of an idea as to what the term ‘idols‘ means? Well, first of all it’s not the American type, nosirree! Aida’s setting is based more on the Japanese concept of idols, which you can read about here: Japanese Idols Wikipedia Page.

Initially taking place in and around the world’s capital city of Aida, but spreading much further afield as well, the story follows a number of idols, both rookie and experienced, as they grow and climb to greater heights, professionally and in their private relationships.

I’ll also be putting up pages with entries detailing some of the other colony worlds of this universe plus characters, locations, names, terms, and other useful information. This is going to be a pretty big work/world/setting (currently 10 books planned, the first five of which are all underway—book 1 is finished, book 2 is close to it), so having a codex of sorts will come in handy for refreshing memories.

The characters page is already up, covering some of the main girls. More detail and stuff like portrait images will be added over time; commissioning artists costs money, and I can’t afford that right now, sorry. I’m also dabbling in art myself, so one day I might even put some sketches of my own up, but writing is always my primary focus.

And if you enjoy the content here and would like to help me do more, you can support me on Patreon or MakerSupport (Patreon is the main, MakerSupport is a backup in the event Patreon do something stupid again), or you can buy me a coffee or two, sometimes known as Writer Fuel, if you’d rather not commit to a monthly payment.

All patrons get additional content in the form of spin-off stories for the main works that wouldn’t really fit in the main narrative. At $3 a month you get full access to all my novels and novellas several months before they go up on Amazon (at the current time this is Aida book 1 and book 2, plus two upcoming novellas).

And at $5 you get all of the above plus early access to drafts, sneak peaks, notification of upcoming works before anyone else, and maybe even a look at old drafts, notes, and other things I’d never normally share publically. If you support at this level, check out this post for a detailed breakdown of what I have planned for the next year.

 

Book 1: Dreaming of the Stars:

Transferring from their home on Mars, best friends Isla Ainsworth and Anise Kendall arrive on Aida, hopeful and eager. Isla is initially unsure of her direction, but soon meets someone who can help her discover her destiny, and Anise finally feels like she can truly be herself.

Alongside new friends and mentors, Aida’s latest arrivals quickly adjust to their new lives, beginning their ascent to idolhood. And along the way, they might both find some new and exciting interests of a more intimate nature.

(Read the free sample on Movellas! Comprises roughly the first quarter of the book. Or support me on Patreon at $3 a month to get access to the full book right now.)

 

Book 2: Starlet Sunrise:

Settling into new and enjoyable relationships, the girls start exploring some new idol pursuits. Millie gets involved with a stellarvision show and meets a new rival, Eva and Anise get to know each other over some modelling practice, and Isla prepares to challenge the academy’s top idol to a rematch.

(Coming soon to $3 patrons, then Amazon around early summer.)
