Censored cover for Smashwords

For anyone who buys "The Ring" from Smashwords, here is the uncensored cover.
And this is the censored one.
A waste of beauty if you ask me.

The Appointment

The Appointment is up at Smashwords.




Also uploaded to Create Space for paperback publication.

Embarrassing moment

My first published work, "What if she wanted?" has been out there for a while. Currently it is only available at one site and I never thought to publish it at amazon since it violates one of their rules from page 1:
"What if she wanted to suffer permanent damage?"

For a few days I began considering offering it at Smashwords so, in order to adapt the formatting etc, I had to redo it. It turns out that the only copy I had of the manuscript was the PDF version from A1.

To transfer it into an editable word file required a flagrant violation of DRM. It would also require revision of the text and formatting.

I began to re-read the story, formatting as I went, and correcting minor mistakes.

And then it happened. I hadn't realized the book was so bad. Not the story, the story was OK, it was the telling of it. As I revised and rewrote I became more and more despondent.

I did not make it halfway through. It sits now in my hard drive waiting for the day that I can summon the energy to deal with it again. I think nothing short of a complete re-write will fix this story.

The take home message is: 1- don't hold your breath waiting for it, and 2- Don't buy it at A1, or if you do don't complain about it.

I felt tempted to have it removed from circulation. I might still do.

Birthday and Lynette's story now available in Smashwords

Birthday and Lynette's story gets a new cover by Minos and is now available at Smashwords too.

Here is the new cover art. There are two versions. The one with the nipple covered is the Smashwords one, they are a bit more antsy about nipples than Amazon, believe it or not.

And here is the Smashwords one.

A new site has opened, a branch of A1 called tabooreading.com. It is meant as a response to the difficulties encountered by adult authors at other sites. You can check it out at http://www.tabooreading.com/searchengine.htm

Chameleon has just been uploaded at Smashwords.

I have asked Minos to make a new cover for Birthday and Lynette's story and will post that one at Smashwords when it's ready.

I think I shall work next on "What if she wanted"

What if she wanted is my first long novel, and it will be a Smashwords exclusive as it has not been published other than in A1 and a couple of other specialized sites.

Today I posted my first novel at Smashwords. Let's see how that goes.
I plan to post all of the works currently posted at Amazon/B&N also at Smashwords.
I might actually discontinue the B&N account since the activity there is so slow it is almost not worth it.
The new versions of "You Will Submit to a Tall, Dark Stranger" with the Minos cover are up at Barnes & Noble as well as at Amazon. At Amazon the book is available as an e-book or print edition.

For all those who got the e-book at Amazon you may upgrade your copy to the new edition at Amazon's Manage your Kindle page.

Announcing Minos collaboration

Great news! I have entered into a collaboration agreement with Poser artist Minos.
He will be creating cover images for my new and some of my old novels.

The first one will be for "You will submit to a tall dark stranger" and here is his creation.


You can find Minos' work at his website Perilous Thoughts http://perilousthoughts.com/

Warning: Its content is disturbing and may not be appropriate for most people. I considered whether to add the link to the site or not and decided to do so, but if you do click on it, you do it at your own risk.
Don't come complaining to me later!
