Secrets of the Velvet Trap

Throughout 2024-2025, I'm publishing the serial novel Secrets of the Velvet Trap, a psychological drama set in 1935, within the milieu of an underground fetish club and psychoanalysis. The story publishes weekly through Tantalizing Tales and the list of currently available chapters is Here.

Join me on this intimate revolt. Secrets of the Velvet Trap is a Depression-era, slow-burn psychological drama about the turbulent relationship between Dr. Eleanor Wentworth, a radical psychoanalyst, and her patient, Edith “Eddie” Langley, a young reporter. With her compulsion for broken women, Eleanor finds herself inexorably drawn in by Eddie’s wounded sexuality, and their professional relationship evolves into a passionate affair.

(The images above are covers painted for the first 24 chapters of the serial novel. I paint in Procreate on an iPad. I share some of my technique in my art posts.)

If you enjoy my stories, please consider clapping, highlighting, and commenting. Interactions is how Medium determines what stories to share and how to pay authors. If you prefer to stay anonymous and just read, that's cool, but you know, we live in a processual world in which everything shares in creativity. There's no story without a reader, and every reader creates a new story. We do this together.

I paint most of the covers for my stories. I'm a digital painter using Procreate, Clip Studio Paint, and Adobe Photoshop. I use an iPad Pro for creating and a desktop computer for edits. I often write about my process on my art posts.
