Here are some of my thoughts on Amazon’s new payout to authors under the KDP Select program. Word of warning, unless you’re an indie author, you probably don’t care about what I’m going to say as it’s pretty inside baseball.
And if you’re looking for the TLDR version of it, here it is: I think that if you’re a writer of longer-form books (novels and novellas), then getting paid per page is a better way to handle royalties than getting paid per borrow. (more…)
Happy Friday (or Saturday, or Sunday, or whenever you first read this). I’ve got a new short out, exclusively on Amazon (which also means that if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, you can borrow this for free).
Bryce King was his wife’s college boyfriend during her “bad boy phase,” whatever that means. That, and a single photo, are all that Chris knew about the guy. So naturally, he’s curious. When Chris finds himself seated next to Bryce King on a plane, headed back home to Philly, he realizes that he’s got a golden opportunity.
But when he does learn more about the kind of man Bryce was, and the wild and dirty women he dated, can Chris handle it? Is that his wife that Bryce is talking about, and did she do all of those things? And when he finally gets home, will he ever be able to look at her the same way again?
It all started with this simple question from Kirsten McCurran:
Which do you prefer? Cheating wife or shared wife stories? Why?
— Kirsten McCurran (@KirstenMcCurran) May 12, 2015
It led to a pretty lengthy Twitter discussion around the possibility of a female-led hotwife story, and whether a story like that was possible. Could something truly be a “hotwife” (or naughty wife, if you prefer), which is typically a male-led fetish, while also having the wife being the driving force behind the fantasy?
I didn’t want it to be lost to the twisted tubes of the internet, so I stuck it all in a Storify story. Read it if you’re curious, then come back here and tell me what you think.
There’s a subset of the subgenre of naughty wife erotica that would like to see the wife punished for her misadventures. This variant is typically called “burn the bitch,” or BTB (not to be confused with the corporate lingo), usually features a cheating wife, and is almost always not my thing.
This’ll be short, but I felt like it needed to be addressed because these story lines are so tangential to the ones that I am drawn to, and I’ve gotten a few readers asking (or suggesting) I explore a BTB. Simply put, I won’t. To me, a happy ending is pretty damn important, both from a romantic perspective, but also from a literary one. I write about couples (and wives) who explore a naughty side of themselves that they didn’t know they had. The goal is always to strengthen their relationship by understanding themselves better. To write a story that ends in revenge runs contrary to what I’m trying to do as an author.
Let me be clear about a few things. Opinions are opinions, and I’m not judging those people who enjoy this kind of literature. Our desires are crazy and inexplicable things, and sexuality is even more enigmatic. Also, real life is messier than fiction. People cheat. People get hurt. People hurt their loved ones. And a lot of times, marriages end in divorce (or worse). I strive to write stories full of characters that (hopefully) feel real, and they go through their ups and downs, and things may even get dark, but in the end, I’m writing their destinies, and I feel like writing one that ends in tragedy would be a waste of time for me.
Again, this is only my opinion, and it’s one of many. But hopefully this’ll help set your expectations about my books.
Stephen Warren’s college girlfriend, Brigitte, was every guy’s dream come true—a busty blonde with a kinky streak. They didn’t last, and Stephen eventually settled down with a great woman, but even seventeen years later, Brigitte still visits his dreams.
Chrissy Warren is curious about the woman who shaped her husband during his most formative years. As they relive that fateful summer of young lust, they unlock fantasies that neither knew they had—Stephen’s voyeurism, Chrissy’s craving for sexual adventure, and most stunning of all, Stephen’s buried desire to share his wife.
When they get invited to a destination wedding in the Virgin Islands, knowing that Brigitte would be there with her playboy husband, will this couple be able to resist the dream of playing with another?
I don’t know about you guys, but it’s rainy and wet here. The perfect weekend for staying in, curling up with a good book, and reading. Looking for a little sexy escape? Here are a few books from my fellow authors to get you through it. (Also, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve done one of these.)
Dreaming of Another comes out on March 24, but it’s available for pre-order already. If you want this on the day of release, then click away. As an indie author, the pre-orders are also a great boost, helping me compete with the big boys. Description after the break.
Pre-orders are available on:
The experimental site, eroticaformen.com is semi-offline for the time being. I’m not only giving it a new paint job, but I’m rebuilding the engine, so it’ll be a bit before you can catch this ride (okay, no more of the car metaphors).
Basically, in redoing the look and feel, I decided I didn’t like the data model I was using, so I decided to implement woocommerce to manage the books. It’s not turning into a bookstore or anything. You’ll still need to go to your favorite retailer to purchase, but this way, it’ll feel more like a shopping experience.
Downside is we’ll lose any comments. Upside? There weren’t very many anyway.
Full speed ahead! (Sorry.)
