Some stand alone NSFW fiction for you all. Romance seems to be all about meeting and falling in love, never about people who already did that, never about afterwards. Time for a little, kinky spin on a time honoured tradition.
Blue. Also I'm glad you're looking at self-publishing. I buy a lot of erotica on Amazon and some of it is just unreadable. Your writing is 1,000,000,000,000 times better.
I was not expecting this many messages at all. It’s so blush inducingly nice to know. Thank you.
As for self publishing I’m trying to read and research right now. I’m not sure if I should do it under a pseudonym, I’m trying to understand the international tax laws and I have about three or four ideas I’m working on. It’s very encouraging to hear positive feedback!
“People always look for excuses. My favorite one is, “Well that’s easy for you because you have a really popular blog.” As if my really popular blog was something I won in the lottery. I had a really unpopular blog for three years in a row where 10 or 20 people were reading it. When I got started in the book business, I received 900 rejection letters. So you don’t look at the end result — at the Richard Bransons and Maria Popovas — and say, “Well they have that thing that I don’t.” They got that thing by showing up. I am really focused on helping people understand that not showing up is a failure of will more than it is a failure of birth.”

I’m occasionally baffled when young writers ask me for advice, and I give it, and then I see comments that say that none of my advice applies because I’m a best-selling author. As if I had spent my whole life as a best-selling author, and had never been anything else…
Me: Ooh I’m gonna read some of the sexy short stories for free on Amazon. Hehehe, professional smut!
Me: Fanfiction has set my standards too high
This isn’t even hyperbole. I have bought a few erotic novels recently and I swear, the internet is revolutionising this genre. <3 I would presume a lot of the stuff that you can buy is for grandmas or nuns or people who have been living in caves for the past 60 years. I don’t even know.
