At the end of 2013, Smashwords announced that it would support the direct upload of EPUB files through a service dubbed Smashwords Direct. This is huge–definitely worth my redundant blog post here. Smashwords has always been a champion of the self-publisher, but it required your story be uploaded as a Word .doc, and then subjected to something called the “Meatgrinder.” That requirement is now gone. Hooray!
Personally, I’d stopped publishing on Smashwords because of the hassle of reformatting all my books into Word. The amount of time that took versus the sales I was seeing wasn’t worth it. Now, I don’t have to worry about that. In celebration of this, I’ve published Naughty But Nice for free, in addition to posting Leap and Rediscovering Danielle at their regular prices. Grab it now (or later, because it’s going to remain free for the foreseeable future).
Ask most guys and they’ll tell you: there’s just something about a sexy mom. This isn’t a new concept. Mrs. Robinson may have been a MILF before her time, but she was still a MILF. Hormonal teens have fantasized about their teachers and the mothers of their friends long before Stifler’s or Stacy’s hit pop culture. It’s given new life to aging porn stars. Brought the rise of shows, both real and desperate. Hell, an entire section of Cafe Press is devoted to MILF merch.
I’ve been known to write a few sexy mom themed stories. Moving Mrs. Mitchell and Naughty But Nice are direct examples of the MILF fantasy in erotica, but more often than not, when I’m thinking of a sexy female protagonist, I’ll gravitate toward someone with more maturity than less (Sarah in Leap, Danielle in Rediscovering Danielle). But what is it about the mom I’d like to fuck? What’s that something that most guys are drawn to?
