Linnea Lucifer, Captain

Welcome aboard, weary traveller. You arrived just in time for a fika* with the crew. If this is your first time aboard the Resilience, let me start by introducing myself. My name is Linnea Lucifer, and I am the Captain of this mighty pirate ship. I built her myself and moved in while she was nothing but a building site. Today, she’s home to a splendid, diverse crew aka our Procrastination of Indie Authors.

Currently, there are ten of us residing onboard, but we also have a number of friends, guests and passengers who travel with us every now and then. On top of that, we are building a Readers’ Retreat in Libertalia, but I’ll tell you all about that another time.

Today, it’s my turn to read snippets from the Ship’s Log out loud. We do this every Thursday to make sure everybody’s up to date, and fully aware of what’s happening on board and in our camp. If you miss out on a Thursday Fika, you always get a second chance on Sundays, which just so happens to coincide with the release of our smut addendum, the Holihell Headlines. (NB! You need a separate subscription to take part in nsfw activities.) You can get the hottest tea and the spiciest nibbles served at any location of your choice. How sweet is that?

Now, grab yourself a hot beverage from the galley, and come join us on Quarterdeck where the fika-table is waiting. I’ll introduce you to our crew, tell you something about the importance of fika, and let you in on a little secret.

In This Week’s Ship’s Log


Someone (I can’t remember who) once said that the most important four-letter word in the Swedish language is neither ABBA nor IKEA. It’s FIKA. As a Swede by birth and old habit, I approve of this message.



So, I have a confession to make: I am partly to blame for the existence of this book. I am 50% of Linn Rhinehart. At a round table meeting, just about a year ago, our Quartermaster said that he had plans for a Valentine’s story…


Work in Progress

Before I introduce you to the crew, let me take two minutes to tell you about my current WIPs. I’ll try to make a better job of introducing myself as a writer next time, but for now, I can tell you that I have quite a lot of projects going on at the same time. Tomorrow, Friday 5 May, we release THIS SACCHARINE SENSATION. It’s a sweet little romance with no smutty scenes. I’m working on a Swedish translation of this title, and on SWEET & SPICY, the second book in the PET’S PENANCE SERIES. That one is not for the faint of heart, but if you like spicy reads you should probably subscribe to our HOLIHELL HEADLINES to find out all about it.

I have a fantasy story in the mix too and the first part of that saga is coming with the blue moon this autumn. On top of that, my editor’s desk is full of stories at the moment. Eleven of them to be precise. Somehow, they will all be published before the end of the year, or at least that is the plan.

Okay, that’s enough for this time. If you have any questions, you’re welcome to email me at, or contact/DM me on twitter, @linnealucifer. Now, let me introduce you to our charming crew…

Come Meet Our Resident Lobbots

Aboard the Resilience, we are all LOBBOTs, LOvers of Books and BOokish Things. For practical purposes, we divide Lobbots into three categories: crew, passengers, and stowaways. Crew members are authors who have a permanent position and access to the cre quarters. Passengers are readers and writers who sail with us on a regular basis. Stowaways are all guests, visitors, and lurkers who board the ship without signing on.

Our current full-time crew is made up of the following splendid pirates:


Captain of the Resilience, amateur liar, and bearer of many names. Linnea is a multi-genre author who writes fantasy, romance, and sweet’n’spicy spoonie smut under different pen names. An ancient dragon lady who doubles as a writing coach, editor, and desktop publisher.


So, this new theme of mine is going to focus on The Quartermaster, in his own words, is a simple man of simple pleasures, but don’t forget: Two things can be true! Leto is not only a certified geek and living encyclopedia – he’s also a multi-genre author, storyteller, and content creator who writes fantasy, sci-fi, romance, and erotica.


Our Ship’s Belle is also known as The Belledame and Queen of Creepy for a reason. This sweet social media butterfly lures you in with poetry and pretty pictures but make no mistake. Belle’s horror stories will make your skin crawl, but only in a good way.


The Ship’s Sea Witch is our resident master of spreadsheets, cards, and dice. Marie is the multi-genre author behind the Beyond the Veil series, and the content creator behind the excellent sock puppet theatre featuring her adorkable pet demon Zangrunath and a few other characters from her books.


Sibley is an American author and cover artist who, in their own words, writes super explicit, absolutely filthy pornographic monsters, creatures, and cryptid erotica. I’d like to add that the stories are likely to make you question who the real monsters are and realise that monsters need some sweet loving too. Or at least some of them do. Sibley may also be the friendliest and most helpful pirate in our crew.


Enorma is an American indie author who loves gay aliens, sexy futa, beefy monsters, and slimy tentacles! They write LGBTQA erotica about tentacles, aliens, futanari, mpreg, monsters, and more. If that sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee), you should probably check out their work. Enorma enjoys writing pulpy sci-fi, sarcastic main characters, and graphic sexy times.


Matt is an English author-in-progress (his words, not mine) who’s working hard on his first novel, Echoes of Astyr. When he’s not busy writing, dealing with life, petting the cat or doing spectacular artsy stuff, he’s a Nanomaterials physicist. Which, in case you were wondering, means he’s very good at dealing with things that are so small you can’t see them. As a writer, he’s drawn to Fantasy and Sci-Fi, but has also dabbled in more contemporary fiction and horror.


Saraphinia is our latest recruit. She’s an American writer who’s working on her first two titles at the moment. She likes para-normal romance, ideally with elements of dragon smut, plus fantasy and horror.


Kate is a queer Canadian author of sibling love and sapphic romance. With an honours degree in psychology, she draws on her studies in philosophy, law, and both creative and formal writing courses to inform her work. Kate has done extensive research in popular culture and media, as well as the scientific literature, which also informs the stories she writes. While many may find her stories uncomfortable, Kate believes that they deserve to be told as much as any other.


Doug hails from the beautiful Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. He was a military brat who ended up joining the Canadian Forces himself. After 32 years, he retired and picked up his pen again. He’s been bitten by the writing bug in his youth, but it wasn’t until he retired it became more than a hobby. Doug writes sweet sapphic romance and sci-fi. He’s a self-proclaimed geek, a proud boomer, and an enthusiastic gamer.

At the moment, we are not looking to recruit new crew members, but we do accept new passengers at each port. If you come sail with us and we seem to be a good fit for each other, you could land yourself a permanent position on the Resilience. We are particularly interested in seeing new faces with skills and knowledge that is new, or not common, onboard. If you write in a genre we don’t see too much of, you would also pique our curiosity.

Look, We Did It Again!

Heh, what do you know, we made it to the end this week too. Thank you very much for checking in today. We all appreciate your time and will keep doing our best to provide value for you in our Ship’s Logs.

Next week, our Ship’s Belle, F.K. Belle Marlowe, will be holding the pen again. The Queen of Creepy is a little bit like the Irwin family, you know the Australian zoo-keepers. It’s always lovely to see them, and they all seem so bloody nice you can’t help smiling, but they also tend to throw a big arse snake, or some deadly spiders, on the table when you least expect it and that’s a big no-no in my books. We’ll see what Belle has in store for us next week, but I think I have finally figured out why she’s always trying to ply us with drinks. #justsaying

Now, it’s time for me to curl up in my pet bed and have a long overdue nap, but before I go… You’ve got this! I believe in you.

Puss & Kram,

//Linnea 🏴‍☠️

a blue ship's door with the sign "LINNEA LUCIFER"

Linnea Lucifer is the Captain of an imaginary pirate ship, a weaver of stories, and a certified pain in the arse.

Named after a delicate little flower that grows in mossy, Swedish pine forests, and a fiery fallen angel, she takes great pleasure in everything that tickles the senses and adds a sprinkle of magic and spice to our world.

When Linnea’s not busy commanding the Resilience, or lost in one of her daydreams, she pens fantasy steeped in Norse myth and Scandi folklore as Saga Linnea Söderberg, or Sweet’n’Spicy spoonie smut as Linn Rhinehart together with her Sir Bear.
