Author has written 13 stories for General, Humor, General, Mythology, Historical, Fantasy, Essay, and Romance.
Update 9/7 - I am well aware that the links are not working. The idiots of FFN/FP have decided to blacklist nearly the entire Internet, so that you can't even post links (or even URLs for people to copy and paste!) and there's nothing I or others can do about it. FFN claims it is to combat spam, but it's a heavy-handed and idiotic move. Currently the only links that work are the ones to my Facebook and Fanfiction. For the rest, I've provided a simple how-to right below.
To find my books, just Google M.M. Kin with the words Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble. I also have a tumblr at mmkin dot tumblr dot com.
To find other writing that I have online, Google my username (CultofStrawberry) with the words Fanfiction dot net or Adult-fanfiction dot org.
A picture is worth a thousand words, and a story is worth a thousand images – M.M. Kin
Hello, readers! I am CultOfStrawberry!
A bit about me - I am an eccentric who has a fetish for tomato soup, toesocks, and world domination. I enjoy Frank Herbert's Dune series (and none of that 'new' Dune shit by Brian/Kevin) as well as his non-Dune books, Robert A. Heinlein - my favorites being the Past Through Tomorrow, Time Enough for Love, and A Stranger in a Strange Land. Other authors I enjoy are L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables and Blue Castle) and many more books.
I like the TV shows Avatar (Airbender and Korra) Desperate Housewives, CSI/Law & Order, Gargoyles, and Walking Dead. I also like Anne Rice (before she converted and wrote the dreadful Blood Canticle), V.C. Andrews (not the tripe that her ghostwriter churns out), Strangers in Paradise, Lady Death, Mega Man, Cyborg 009, Kabuki, Sailormoon, Osamu Tezuka's works (check out Buddha, Phoenix, and Ode to Kirihito) A Song of Ice and Fire, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I read a LOT, as I will read almost anything as long as its well written. I even review books on Goodreads for newbie and indie authors.
I'm also a big fan of old-school style video games. Forget X-Box, PS2/3, Wii, Gamecube, and all that newfangled crap. I'll stick with Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis. My favorite games are Tetris, Super Mario Brothers (For the NES/SNES) the Legend of Zelda Series (up to and including Ocarina of Time) the Final Fantasy series (FFI-VI, and I recommend the GBA updates of these titles), Megaman (NES/SNES) and the Sonic the Hedgehog series (just the Genesis ones, before the Sonicverse went to crap with its clusterfuck of recolors)
Would you believe that my very first fanfiction was a Sailormoon one? Yeah, when I was a preteen, I went through a weeaboo phase. I grew out of it, though. Since then, I've deleted some fanfictions that have long since been purged and will never again see the light of day. Older fanfictions, like my Cold Fire trilogy or my Slow Heat duology, have been revamped from older versions to address some much-needed edits and substantially alter/improve some parts of the story. These fics may still be old and not please every reader, but do keep in mind that these stories are old, and as of this date (February 2016) are over a decade old. I have come a long way since then. My current project is Moonshadows, a original romance novel inspired by my distaste for classic cliches and tropes that are overused and abused in fiction.
I also write fanfiction, though I am much more focused on my original wok/novels now..

I accept signed and anonymous reviews here and at my other archives, so you do not need an account to enjoy my work and tell me what you think of them!
To an author, reviews are food. I genuinely value my reader’s words of praise and listen to suggestions and critiques as well as kind words. I am a review whore, and reviews are the only nourishment that I get. I'm not being paid to entertain you, or put such a hard effort in my stories to make them well-written, so I need your kind words. Otherwise me and my muse starve and can't write. So, all you have to do is drop a few kind words, and I will keep working hard at giving you something entertaining to read.
A Very Important Note about my Guide... 'Spleef's Guide to Being Evil' was published WAAAAY back in 2002 on my website, which is now long since dead, and then on Fichaven.org, which is now also defunct. I have gone through many of the chapters, tweaking, polishing off, etc. I will not be posting chapters by order, as some later chapters are done, and some have yet to be fleshed out or written. So don't be worried if you can't find a chapter - it is not yet up. I will try to post more chapters in a timely manner.
This Guide was written entirely by me, and when I had my own site, there was also a contributor-based part that basically consisted of ideas and tips provided by people who emailed me, and were accordingly credited. I cannot post that here, as these tips were written by my fans, and not myself. However, I will be using some of these tips. To those of you who were around to contribute or read that Tip List, could you tell me a good place where I could host that, and link here?
When I had this on my site, I had pictures accompanying the Guide to add to the pleasure of reading it. I am unable to do that here, though I may post a pictures-included version to my new homepage. I hope you enjoy what you read, and please leave feedback! Also, as I still consider my Guide an WIP (Work in Progress/unfinished), I will be welcoming suggestions, ideas for what should be added and feedback on chapters that are already up here. Really. :)
If for any reason you ever want to contact me, feel free to do so at cultofstrawberry AT gmail DOT com. Don't send me PMs... seriously. The email I actually use is different than the one I use for this FP account, so if you send me a PM, I might not read it for weeks. If you want a guaranteed response, E-MAIL ME. I cannot stress this enough..
