I felt I’d knocked myself out with taboo brats, and, however delicious their fresh panties were, you can only have so much of a good thing. Well, for a while anyway (I’m sure I’ll return to their fevered clutches one day).
I wanted to do something different, something that not many erotica writers seem to do, and that is celebrating the older lady in all of her glorious grey haired wonder. Why not celebrate the experienced and mature woman? Better a cougar than a mewling kitten!
From a sales viewpoint I have absolutely no idea as to how this is going to pan out. It might be a disaster it might not. Only time will tell. On a positive note, the first title, ‘Celia’, has had two very nice reviews on Smashwords already.
I think that the protagonists will all appear quite ‘strong’ of character, this is in no way intentional. I let the characters speak for themselves as the story unfolds and the first two ladies seem to know what they wanted in the end and told me in no uncertain terms.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy these stories and feel benevolent enough to leave a review.
Until next time x
So, once again, I’m taking my stuff from Kindle Select and slowly publishing via D2D and Smashwords. I know this is a decision that many e-writers struggle with. I’m giving my two pence of thought on the subject.
In the long run it’s not a hastily made decision. I’ve given Select a fair crack of the whip, having all of my titles exclusive for six months. For me, the revenue gained through borrows just isn’t worth it. At first it’s exciting, seeing that people have read thousands of pages of your work. It’s only once you work out the mathematics and translate that into 0.4 cent per page, that you begin to question the wisdom.
The tricky thing is that all authors are different and all books/stories are of differing lengths. The variables are dependent upon your popularity.
As a guide I would suggest that authors select a few of their most popular works and try these via Kindle Select. Don’t, as I did, put everything on there! Give the trial a good run (you’ll be getting twitchy after three months anyway), and see how you’re page per view payments are doing. Kindle Select is very profitable for some, but not everyone. The only way to know is to trial it, keeping close check on payments.
For me the trial is over. This is good news for my (modest) readership as my stories are now available on Barnes & Noble, Apple, Nook, Smash etc., making the available market a broader prospect for me.
So, to recap, give Select a go (but not necessarily all of your work) and see if it works for you. Good luck until next time.
I haven’t posted for a while as I’ve been up to my grubby neck since November with filthy brats in all of their glorious incarnations – Tempting Taboo Brats if the truth be known. This is the latest series I have been working on. A non sequential series, so you can dip in where you like, and, let’s face it, there’s nothing better than dipping into a taboo brat now and then.
I’ve tried to make the stories all a little different, and to make it unclear as to who is tempting who.
I had planned to write ten but petered out at nine. As a writer there’s only so many spoiled, tight young things you can take.
As ever, these stories are all available on Amazon, and will (slowly) be appearing on Smash, B&N, Kobo, etc. over the coming months. The nine story bundle is already out on the Zon.
There is a link to my stores page on the home screen which will take you to the retailers of your choice.
And now onwards to something new. I fancy some granny sex, anyone else?
