I have been publishing work for a little over a year now and have found it very gratifying.  The draw to my work by readers could be better, but when you consider I only advertise on twitter and the web site, the interest is really more than I could have hoped.  It did however get me thinking about publishing and why we want to publish.   We publish for different reasons.  For some of us it is all about the money.  For others its about th...

I am growing increasingly frustrated with Amazon right now.  So much so that I putout a feeler on social media to see where readers were getting their ebooks from (Kindle or iBooks).  The unanimous response was Amazon Kindle – which frustrated me even more because of the problems I was having. I recently got wind of something I was ignorant about and maybe I still am.  I friend from Canada reached out to me not too long ago informing me ...

  New Short Story The Company Policy [Available on Amazon Kindle] I was very happy with my current job, but always kept my options open when it came to my career.  When the perfect opportunity appeared, I was sold very early on and all set for a change of scenery.  Little did I know that the change in scenery would be much more than a new office and paint on the walls.

I started publishing my short stories and books a little over a year ago and while I have been very happy with the interest and feedback I have received, I have to admit the process is a pain in the ass sometimes.  What I should say is the process is fairly simple, but the waiting and the support is what can be frustrating. There are a lot of tools and other writers who have their own tips and tricks to self publishing – ALL HAVE  VALUE ...

I recently read an blog post from another author Ann Michelle (see her post here) Where she discussed the concerns readers have about purchasing her erotic tales.  I have seen a similar situation and her options have fantastic merit.  The option of creating a “plain brown wrapper”  for her books could a great thing for the readers who don’t want to look like a freak when the mailman delivers them.  The challenge with this is ...

Something I have been thinking about for some time was to share some of my “shorter” stories rather than sell them on Amazon.  Initially, I was hoping to put some of these into a graphic novel, but found it increasingly difficult to find the right artist.  So I am going to take a shot at this myself using some creative photo editing tools and some text to speech software to create audiobooks that I hope will enhance the stories. Al...

When I picked up the pen and started writing, I was thrilled at the amount of feedback I was receiving.  At the time, I wasn’t even looking for it.  Now that I have several stories and books out, I expected to see more reviews.  I still receive support on social media with the likes, retweets and shares, and yeah I still get some of the sickos who want me to help them play out their  fantasies, but I noticed most recently that while I ge...
