Finishing a final draft is like sex

Finishing a final draft is like sex, except even more satisfying.  I love that feeling of having one less story fighting the others for space in my skull! Tonight, I just finished my first real eBook in three months!  I tend to publish one title a month, and in March … Continue reading

Twitter, Sales in February, and the Shortage of Reviewers

What I think of Twitter now that I’ve had an account for 5 weeks: If you follow around 10 or so new people a day, and only pick folks who have a 50% follower-to-following ratio or better, you’ll very quickly have 100+ followers.  At that point, you should get 3-4 … Continue reading

Progress on the sequel to “She Only Wore a Shirt to the Funeral”

Lately, I’ve been writing lately on the sequel to “She Only Wore a Shirt to the Funeral” , (which happens to be free on Smashwords) and I’m trying out a few new techniques along the way.  I’ve recently discovered that voice recorders really help me write erotica.  The other day, I saw … Continue reading

Mostly for authors today…

I have many different things to write about tonight. First, Disturbed is good music to listen to while doing your publicity stuff. Second, if you’re an author, you NEED to go see if you’re on  I happened to see it when searching for my name, and it seems that they … Continue reading

You know how you get blocked on stuff?  Forget it; … Continue reading

What to do and what not to do as an erotica writer

In one bit of news, my eBooks have started selling again today.  I’m starting to really think that “how bored do I expect to be tomorrow?” is the big seller for erotica. I should preface the next bit with an explanation of how I see “competition” amongst my fellow authors, one which … Continue reading

An interesting inflection point in stats

Fair warning for those looking forward to some erotica related updates… this post is for the writers out there, and this post will be pretty dry and statistics-oriented.  I’ll forgive you for skipping this one over entirely. I’ve done some studying of sales statistics lately.  Specifically, I was trying to … Continue reading
