In case you didn’t know, Erotica had its own Muse – Erato

Although I knew since I was a kid that the Greeks believed in nine Muses, I recently discovered that one of them in particular is responsible for erotica. Her name is Erato, and her specific responsibility is erotic poetry – which makes her the Muse which we erotica writers seek favor from. Yes, of course, I’d totally do the modern version of her below.

At any rate, by Erato’s grace I’ve finally published my latest free story (“They Needed A Jump“), which frees me up to work on the other stories which require my attention.


Here’s a run down the list of where I’m at. My usual novella length is 24,000 words, and I actually have a couple of stories which aren’t too far behind in word count. I just need to get the stories up to par and not get sidetracked along the way.

Title Word Count
Progenitor 3 16500
The Fallback Plan 4600
Winning the Genetic Lottery 2 16500
Merlin’s Safeguard 5600
Mordred Rising 1700
Morgan Goes to the Office 3600
Cum In Me If You Want To Live 2 600
She Wore a Sundress to Jury Duty 2000

I’d dearly love to finish some of these before I get drawn into completing something else.

More Amazon fun and games

Amazon declined my request to set “They Needed A Jump” to free, which was half-expected and not a big surprise. But what was annoying was that while they declined to make that one free, they apparently also decided to review my account and revoke free status from “She Only Wore a Shirt to the Funeral” while they were at it. Probably just trying to push my stuff farther to the bottom of peoples’ radar… big erotica is fine, but indie erotica wanting free titles out there for publicity? Heavens no, can’t have that.

“They Needed A Jump” released!

My latest free erotica short, “They Needed A Jump” is now available! This is my first release this year. I’m trying to get better at balancing writing and life, because last year it was way unbalanced on the life side and the year before that… well, writing was what I … Continue reading

Preview of Fallback: Arrival

Since I haven’t posted much lately, I decided that I’d rather put up some incomplete chapters than have folks assume I’m dead.  This is a particularly breeding-centric piece which I started as a comic book storyboard years ago, then decided a while back to convert to a form I’m actually … Continue reading

Guns, Girls, and Download Spikes

It’s not a secret that I’m involved in the US firearms community. For that matter, it’d be possible to deduce that from the fact that a lot of my stories involve firearms.  Cupid’s Armorer, for instance, is about rearming the Cupids with guns, and the entire “She Wore…” series is … Continue reading

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

Proof that I’m writing… Progenitor 3 opener

This is the opener from Progenitor 3, which at this rate is likely to be the first story I complete on my new laptop.  There’s been some substantial improvements vs the briefly-released free version, and I’m really liking how Amita’s rewrite is going.  Her motivations ranged from psychotic-sounding to petty … Continue reading

Ominous future for Nook readers and Barnes & Noble

Picture is only related in that I’m presently working on the Brent Allen universe a little right now.  But, the main thing I’m writing about is the ominous happenings in the Barnes and Noble world.  B&N has been a nice little company to me – not as worked up about … Continue reading

Got my mac dialed in – writing is so much nicer!

Oh geez, writing on a mac again is so much nicer! Yep, getting to write with a mac again is awesome, and I’m pretty sure my previous laptop really is the reason I wasn’t getting anything written for a while.  I’m inordinately happy with the keyboard on this thing vs … Continue reading
