Amazon’s mystical hidden category keywording

I recently told a woman I’m dating that I’m an erotica author – just not which one.  Lo and behold, this sparked a fire of curiosity in her which has launched a grand quest for my identity.  She had a clever idea: Navigate into Amazon’s erotica section and get a … Continue reading

Spousal sex deprivation really is a form of abuse

…and I’m really surprised I now know women suffering from it too   I wrote “She Only Wore a Shirt to the Funeral” in early 2013 or so.  At the time, I knew that sometimes men just wouldn’t sleep with their wives after they’d borne them children.  I’d heard Elvis … Continue reading

A couple of interesting pieces on indie publishing

So, I stumbled upon these interesting articles earlier today.  The first one is more slanted towards publishers – both large and small.  Basically, it makes some really good points about what the KDP Select program does and doesn’t do for authors. http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2014/06/06/how-to-compete-with-amazon-if-you-really-want-to/ Now, one variable which isn’t tracked in this … Continue reading
