It’s bad outside. To the point my arms are starting to feel heavy. I was wondering how bad the allergy situation would have to be to overwhelm my fasting system. This bad, apparently.
Okay, I got a ton of $0.99 books for you guys. What else… Sorcerer Slayer is now up to scene #41. A petting turned straight into makeout session (Vince is just ridiculous <3) Intangible #9 is up and I’m hoping to have another Awakening this weekend once I get some new banners made. Cuz multitasking.
Hey, it’s been a month since I started the subscription site! Huzzah!
Anyone ever read Animorphs? It was this young adult series I used to read in… I want to say middle school. I revisited it the other day and was struck with how that was probably the series where I fell in love with shifters. And where I learned a serial format of writing. Funny the things that inspire us when we’re not even paying attention…
Could I write a young adult series? O_o I just don’t see me writing without there being sex everywhere.
Queer Romance is having a sale! Mostly $0.99, but a few higher prices thrown in too. Link below.
Smashwords is having a month long sale with free to discounted books! The categories vary and new books–they’re expecting hundreds–will be added throughout the month. It involves some searching but I’m sure there are gems to be found. Make sure your Adult and Erotica filters are on. XD Link below at the bottom.
Happy soon to be 4th. Sort of. Seriously, the idea of celebrating the independence of America with a racist, bigoted, fucktard in office doesn’t really thrill me. Is it patriotism or nationalism at this point? Keep waiting for the dinosaurs to go extinct only to have a new movement in regressivism sweep in. :/ There’s no going back.
I remember this book I read as a kid (I read a fucking lot XD) On The Flip Side. Technology had woken up a dimensional species of aliens who started attacking humans. The answer was the entire human race warped through willpower alone to another parallel world. No one remembered who they were but they were in a regressive existence without tech. That was the end. Like moving sideways and backward and forgetting all their experiences solved a thing. It was an annoying ending for a book–yeah, as a kid in elementary school I remember being pissed off. Who runs away from their planet after they fucked it up? What kind of lesson is that? It’s even more implausible in practice. You can’t go back and there is nowhere left to run. People need to learn to get along and deal with the mess they make.
Blah. Hope the weather treats you all well wherever you’re living. ^^ Don’t get allergies. Just don’t. It makes you grumpy and think about tons of books you once read.

Clair is a brilliant nineteen-year-old disowned for being gay…
Clair’s father found his Chrome search history. Now Clair is homeless, living in his car and dreaming about making use of his Harvard acceptance letter, or ungaying himself to make his life easier. His only friend is his cat Linus. In an emergency, Clair has no choice but to take Linus to Blake Jorgensen, the rage-filled veterinarian everybody warned him about.
Blake is an ultra-successful veterinarian with a lonely heart and a dirty mouth…
Everybody knows: Blake Jorgensen isn’t a nice guy. His clinic is called Pussy-Hound, and the building looks more like a strip club than a vet’s office. Blake rains profanities on clients who don’t take proper care of their animals, his office music is Marilyn Manson, and his assistant is a nervous handlebar-mustachioed dude named Catsmeat. But mostly, Blake is profoundly lonely. He knows that no man in Amelia Island will put up with a veterinarian who works fifteen-hour days and is singularly devoted to helping animals.
Their first meeting is a mess. Blake dresses down Clair, while Clair worries about what a guy named Catsmeat will do to Linus. But Blake is the only person willing to help not only Linus recover from tularemia, but Clair recover from his loneliness and uncertainty.
Clair can’t stop admiring Blake’s ripped body, his professional dedication, and his wacky humor — while Blake is in love with a lanky young man who’s smart, wise, caring, and handsome way beyond his nineteen years.
Blake offers Clair a room at his beachfront mansion, with absolutely no obligations. Clair assumes Blake expects a little something-something, but Blake pushes him away. If Clair can’t accept Blake’s secret, he and Blake might remain nothing more than housemates.
Meow is a gay romantic comedy with a feel-good HEA, copious breath mints, a profanity-activated feeder, lots of laughs, and a whiny cat named Paul Lynde. No cliffhanger, no cheating, and no sad kitties.

Mitchell didn’t really have much excitement in his life until his friends convinced him to sign up for a dating site. He expected boring dates with men who just wanted to get in his pants like he’d always had, but when a pair of big muscular boys sent him a message, he knew he had to reply.
Now, he has to balance his old life of being an innocent man in a boring job, with the excitement of being the love-toy for a pair of hunks, and not just that, but bear shifters! Keeping their secret, when disaster strikes, he has to decide; will he go beyond just having a bit of fun and become their mate?
Writing stories that make people hard doesn’t have to be hard!
Why are so many people getting into writing and self publishing erotica? According to the New York Times, the porn industry brings in $10 to $14 billion dollars a year. You can tap into that income, too!
What about E. L. James, author of the hit erotica series Fifty Shades of Grey? As of late July in 2012, the author had sold 15 million copies of her books in the United States and Canada alone. That’s why so many people are getting into this business.
Making money with erotica isn’t as easy as people make it seem, though. That’s why you need this guide.
Buy this quick how-to guide now and start earning money!
What are the best stock photos? How big should a cover be? Where should the font go? How and where do I advertise my stories? What should my stories even be about?
How often have you heard, “Nobody makes money from self-publishing”? It’s coming from the mouths of authors, agents, publishers and editors out of ignorance… or malice. Don’t fall for their lies!
If you’re looking to jump-start your career in writing, though, self-publishing is the average person’s solution. The problem is, the information you need is scattered all over the internet. And frankly, the money is best in erotica, and money is ultimately the bottom line between you and writing full-time.

Dorian Black is wealthy, cool, and extraordinarily powerful, but he hides a deadly secret. Drawn to Wylie and his alpha shifter ways, he can’t stop his dangerous attraction or the literal sparks that fly between them. Wylie’s everything Dorian’s been dreaming of but isn’t allowed to have.
When gangsters call Wylie out to face his past, he’s ready to take responsibility for his mistakes. Will Dorian finally make a stand for the boy he’s fallen for? Or will Wylie find out the hard way if his dragon scales can stop a downpour of bullets?
This novel contains explicit m/m sexual content, graphic language and violence. Expect sexual tension, animal behavior, mating of a very wet variety, angst, bloodlust, an institution filled with hot paranormal boys, first time experiences and some sweet sap near the end. All sexually active characters are 18+
I think this was my birthday week… pretty sure that happened. The ocean was involved. 4 times hit with the mold (or whatever invisible allergen is stalking my fucking house) this week. Pretty sure the mold given the weakness in my limbs and constant urge to fall asleep. My focus is shot. And let me just say how fucking pissed off I am about it all and leave it at that. Allergy shots had this huge effect but they can’t prevent my body from reacting to a large amount of allergens. So… fuckballs. Looks like I need to turn the house into a bubble or airlock or some bullshit.
I dunno, I’m tired. A little grumpy but my spirits are up. This too shall pass. It gives me plenty of excuses to stay in bed and type all day with my hands that don’t want to move. (I might be wallowing a little. Blah.)
I’m mid scene for Awakening (still >_<) But we have up to Scene 28 for Sorcerer Slayer. Given my limitations of thought and energy as of late, I’m going to be focusing on the path of least resistance until I get another allergy shot on Monday, which are the things written but just need some light editing before posting. So expect updates to Sorcerer Slayer and the free fic Intangible.
Below are some $0.99 reads, the third is actually full price but I saw it and it looks kinda cool and thought I’d share–I like cool shit. And then I scoured the gay freebies on Amazon and posted some cuz for real, if I was in a place where I could stay the fuck awake and enjoy, this is the shit I’d be reading. Ridiculous porn, punny titles, and suspense stories. XD Enjoy, darlings. I hope your week is going fabulous.

Helpless against their growing desire for one another, will they lose everything?
His Knight In Shining Armour Has A Big Thick Wallet And A Big Thick Sword
Oasis was once one of the most popular bars in the city. Now, Oasis was nothing more than a ghost town, paling in comparison to the upscale bars popping up left and right. This meant bad news for Carl Markez, the owner of Oasis.
That all changes when he meets Steve Shields. With his copper hair and diamond eyes, he was the sexiest man Carl had ever laid his eyes on. To top it all off he was rich and willing to help. But there was a catch.
Carl would have to be his partner for a while. In exchange, he would pay for the bar’s expenses for two months. Will Carl step into the role of a billionaire’s partner just to save his bar or would his emotions get in the way?
Poseidon, ancient Greek God of the Sea, ruler of earthquakes and once worshiped by thousands as a fertility god, was bored and that could be a dangerous thing for people around him. Deciding to visit his son, Nereus and friends at the Cloverleah pack; Poseidon causes his own brand of trouble, resulting in a night out at a club. All he wanted was a bed partner for a few hours. What he got was so much more.
Alpha Claude wanted nothing more than to rule his pack, care for his pack members and accept the offer of a warm body when his urges got too strong. When Kane, Alpha of Cloverleah calls and says he wants to bring a special visitor, he was intrigued. But when a silver-haired god walks into his club, he knows his life is going to change. He just didn’t realize how much.
Gods dropping in, visits from family and pesky secrets have a way of making things difficult. Fighting outside foes is easy; the problems that flare between two very different men might be enough to scupper their mating before it has a chance to settle. Will they ever find their HEA or are the differences between a land creature and a god of the sea too great to overcome?
This is an M/M true mates book and as such comes with the obligatory warnings. While this is book two in the series and can be read as a standalone, readers will have a better understanding of secondary characters and off page references if they have read book one and the Cloverleah series, in particular, On the Brink.
So before I get all bitchy about shit… It’s been a good week. Beautiful weather. And I have had so many people email me about this subscription site thing! It’s been amazing. A little overwhelming. XD I’m still getting to mail from the week before. Hopefully I’ll get you all by tomorrow. Everyone has been super encouraging and you don’t even understand how much I appreciate it. I’ve got a fair amount of fear in all this. Not a lot of authors take this route and I’m worried this leap of faith is going to end with me broken and bleeding. Scary stuff. But I can’t give up. I gotta see it through and see what happens.
I’ve received a few concerns about the cost of $10 a month and there are two threads that I want to address. One is value and the other is income.
So… I’m not trying to compete with KU here. I understand that they have set an idea of value by allowing people to download hundreds to thousands of books a month for $10. I can’t compete with that and I’m not trying to. I don’t want to. You have to remember, you can’t keep a KU book. It’s a loan to you. Also, it doesn’t matter how many times you go back to read a KU book, your author is only getting paid once for the first time you read it. That’s why when an author releases a new version, your KU download isn’t updated no matter how much time has past. When you think about it, it’s tactics to keep KU page reads down so that the pool of money thrown in isn’t depleted and the value of page reads destroyed.
Think about it; if every subscriber to KU read more than $10 worth of books a month, authors wouldn’t be paid. Reading 2000 pages a month equates to having spent your $10 if pages are worth 1/2 a penny. What if you read 4000 pages a month? That’s about 8 100,000 word novels. Think Blackthorne or Demon Arms. Suddenly those page reads are 1/4 of a penny. Could I read 8 novels in a month? Fuck yeah. I used to be a voracious reader. A novel every other day. But part of how KU works is the hope that you’ll get subscribers that don’t read much. By only paying an author once for pages read, they’re ensuring that page reads stay lower. And again, it’s bullshit because a page read should be a page read. KU still benefits from the authors’ works while the authors get shafted.
This is not a system I want to compete with, or emulate, for that matter. I think it’s great KU can offer so many books for such a low price but at the same time, I don’t want to base the value of what I’m offering on KU. Especially since they fucked me. :/ I wholeheartedly believe that $10 for 80,000 words a month is more than fair. 80,000 words could be 8 short erotic stories or 4 novella sized stories. This is a lot of writing and if I sold those books outright it would be 8 erotic shorts= $24, 4 novellas= $16. And that doesn’t even bring into consideration all the free downloads of the books already published. The value of what I’m offering is pretty damn sweet. It just might not look it when compared to a giant of a deal like KU.
Which brings me to the second part, which is income, aka, people just don’t have the money. If this is you, for one, I understand completely. As a chick with PTSD, for years I have been in and out of work, lived on disability and foodstamps, not to mention that whole 4 years of stuck in bed. I know what it’s like for $10 to be too much and I have no fucking judgments. If you email me, I will not give you shit about this. I totally understand. Free members will be getting a 50% discount on my books but still, I do give out ARCs. They’re not quite ‘advanced’ but I am always looking for reviews of books new and old. I’m going to be setting up a login on the website just for ARCs so that you can feel comfortable going through my old stuff without having to ask me. I know how daunting it can be to email an author every time you want to read a free book, like you’re doing something wrong or some shit. No more guilt, people. XD And yeah, I’m so busy, I might forget too. So if you can’t afford $10 a month but you really want to be able to read my stuff, you can join up to be a reviewer at least. It won’t let you read what I’m currently working on, but it’s something.
The website is coming along. Most of the content is uploaded, I’ve figured out most of the protection/restriction stuff, and it’s going to be super pretty. I do want to troubleshoot everything and I think I’m going to have to go in to like every damn page and put a menu in there because the current theme disables it (ugh) so I’m not jumping to turn things live just yet. But it’ll be sometime this week, pretty sure.
Went to the doc for that mold allergy testing thing. 10 molds so far. Allergic to 10. I’m also apparently allergic to dust mites, feathers, dogs, and my 3 amazing cats. @_@ The entire point of this is to neutralize my body’s allergic reaction so I can build a resistance but it’s been an emotional blow. My poor kittens. I feel so guilty every time I choose not to cuddle the sweet things. But I’ve been noticing how my throat kind of closes up the same time they come into the room… Damn. >_>
And speaking of emotional turmoil… Instafreebie. I’m going to put this rant at the bottom of the post. It’s a rant and I don’t want to ruin anyone’s day. So…
Babes, no one hit me up to be in my newsletter this week so I did a peek around to see what’s out there. The Big Gay Fiction Giveaway is coming up and I have a feeling people might be holding off for it. It’s going to be a ton of free *__* and I’ll be posting it when it shows up. So this week I sorted through some wonderful author peeps I frequently talk to and I’m totally throwing some of their lovely books out to the wolves (that’s you guys XD) along with a hot freebie. Enjoy.
The Foundling is a hot, tropical male/male erotic romance that takes place on a nameless island somewhere in the vastness of the Caribbean. Diego is a powerful man with a tragic past. Out on the expansive ocean in his private yacht, he discovers a beautiful and mysterious man adrift on a raft, near death. The bond that forms between them in the aftermath of Alec’s rescue is one of fierce passion, though lacking in trust. Can they make it work, or will Alec’s amnesia bring forth secrets so disturbing as to tear them apart? A passionately erotic love story of desire and darkness, exquisite and explicit.
The scene is 1815-1816 in Another England, where men of a certain, ah, bent, are known as friends of Edward’s. Our heroes are nicknamed the “Three R’s.” Peregrine, our blond British viscount rake; Rory, our brawny, hairy, sometimes kilt-wearing, Scots rogue, and Michel, the languid, lethal English-born roué with the French name and French title. They’re close friends. Intimate you might say. Especially since Peregrine is having really great sex with both Rory and Michel. And neither of them knows about the other.
Besides his dear Mama trying to marry him off, Peregrine has a problem. He’s given his word of honor to each of them he won’t disclose what’s going on. What’s a horny rake to do when he knows the three of them together would be incredible in so many ways, but can’t say anything to make it happen?
Even worse, what happens if his two men find out about all the secret sex Peregrine has been enjoying?
You’ll have to read to find out those answers. Along the way: a duel, mysterious inheritances, a nefarious bishop, a scheming lord, a love poem, some wit and humor, a frantic race home, a frolic by the sea, a portrait and…oh, yes…some great sex.

A young hitchhiker, Max also decided that living at home was not worthwhile. Trying to make it to New York, he has no interest in forming any ties or getting involved with anyone beyond just getting a ride.
But what happens when being a loner turns into being lonely and the heat of desire is felt after so much denial?
Will Jake continue to stand by his guns and not get involved despite a building attraction to the young hitchhiker? Will Max still keep to himself and bide his time until he gets the next ride?
Or will both men surrender to their primal needs finally and enjoy their brief time together?
…I’m nothing if not a professional…
I’ve been hired by three dorm mates of a prestigious college for a night they won’t forget. At first, I treat it just like any other job: satisfy the client, get paid, maintain The Gentleman’s sterling reputation.
…But his body is driving me wild…
And then I meet bashful Ty, his rambunctious boyfriend Josh, and their arrogant but gorgeous roommate, Brandon. Brandon and I get off on the wrong foot, but his hot gaze as Ty and Josh take me is too much to resist.
…I just need to take him for a ride…
I’m all too willing to give the three of them the attention and experience they need. After all, there’s enough of me to go around, and we’ll see how fast Brandon’s arrogance lasts when he gets his Share of Shane.
Maybe it’s the allergy thing or maybe the stress of this whole watching my income drop overnight and trying to scramble for a solution but I just seem to be really upset about this. Usually I can see the other side, usually I can let shit go and see things like a proper, understanding adult. This time around is difficult. Maybe because it’s another fucking blow, another damn hit in this line of self publishing dreams turned tainted.
I don’t even know where to begin. To put it simply, it’s another censoring thing. Instafreebie pulled my book and said it was ‘inappropriate.’ One of the reasons I signed up with instafreebie was because they were welcoming to erotica. They had a category just for it, as well as one for LGBT. But they just pulled Robyn. They have no stated rules as to what inappropriate content is defined as, aka, inappropriate is whatever the fuck they say it is at the moment. The email back and forth revealed dubcon and incest as their justification.
So, they welcome erotica, but it has to be erotica on their terms. They get to decide what sexual fantasies are appropriate for people to enjoy, and which ones are not.
I’m so fucking tired of this bullshit. You cannot even understand how fucking tiring censorship is. Writing is supposed to be fun. It’s freeing. You can change people’s lives with a story. Yeah, with a sex story. No joke. You can give people an escape, show them that they are not alone, that they’re not a freak, that they are perfectly fucking fine inside for liking all the different things they like. There is nothing to be ashamed of in a sex fantasy. But here is another business support tool going no, we don’t think what you write is appropriate. We don’t think people have a right to get those stories. We want to erase them from the world.
Freedom of speech doesn’t come into it. That they’re discriminating against me and a group of people never comes up. It’s policy. And for the love of fuck, what has happened to the world where people just continually shrug their shoulders and keep moving on when policies exist to discriminate?
Book banning is discrimination. (I bitch about religion a lot in this. I’ve had a history with it. Please don’t take it personally; it’s the bitterness of my battle. I truly believe we all have a right to religion even if I bitch about my own experiences.)
I’m at the point of being done with Instafreebie. They offered a compromise where I could put Robyn back up, but I’d have to mark it as private. I don’t think it’s worth it. First because now I’m facing the possibility that they’re going to pull the majority of my books because dubcon is a very real theme in my writing. Heat is up there—seriously, they want to tell me they read through my books and Robyn was the only one not appropriate to their unlisted standards? Sure. Two, because fuck that. Seriously, fuck having to put my stories in the closet. Fuck having to hear, once again, that some sex is fine but the sex I write is wrong and needs to be hidden. I’m bisexual. I write about gay characters. I have gay, lesbian, male, female, trans, ace, straight, bi and oh so wonderfully queer friends. Do you really think that I don’t see the motherfucking problem of a group going this is the only way you’re allowed to love and have sex? To my fucking FICTION?
It’s a business. It’s my business. My business is being told, again, that it can’t flourish while others can. My books are not illegal. I am not breaking any laws. But again, exiled and shunned.
I am done compromising myself to make others feel comfortable. I am done not calling discrimination what it is. If something is marked as erotica then adults, who erotica is written for, know that sex occurs in those pages. No one gets to go into that genre and decide what consenting, intelligent adults are allowed to read of their free volition. Who are they trying to protect? Who the fuck is anyone to say what is and isn’t allowed in a book? Write a snuff fic for all I care—because, dear fuck, no one is censoring and banning horror, now are they? That would be discrimination against people that like to read thrillers. What if they started pulling books that contain references to God? Mexicans? Rifles? Gay people. It’s discrimination. It’s wrong in every other context so why should I pretend it’s okay for erotica?
This is just another throwback to puritan bullshit putting morality on sex and forcing everyone to conform to their tight-ass ideals. Obsenity. We’re still fighting this shit today. Grown adults told that they can’t be as they are because a group of people are offended. You know what offends the fuck out of me? The KKK. They’re still protected under free speech. Whatever. Fucking whatever. I did not get into writing to start some fucking civil liberty movement. I just want to write. Motherfuck.
The world should be better. I bet someone said that ten years ago. I bet they said it 100. We don’t fight for freedom day to day but generation to generation. Fear and shame just keeps pushing back against equality. I’ve had enough though. I won’t live in Trump’s repressed, self-hating America. I won’t be silent about this shit. And yeah, maybe I should just roll over and get the fuck over it, but no, I won’t. I’m already tired. Sometimes it’s more energy to back the fuck down and give in to what you know in your heart is wrong. Robyn is fun, sexy, and totally raunchy and by the end, people feel good about themselves, not bad. I’m totally going to write a sequel once I figure out how to handle the pronouns.
Smashwords continues to allow anything on their website and they take pretty much the smallest cut from the author than anyone else. Bookboast has recently expanded into a system similar to instafreebie and to the best of my knowledge, they’re welcoming of all types of erotica. I never had an issue from their newsletter side. Dreamhost, the site that hosts my website, I found on a top hosting for adult websites. They have no limits on free speech and I love them for it.
I’ve been struggling with this problem since Thursday now and I don’t feel any better about it. Not remotely. I don’t like being excluded. I don’t like my work being called inappropriate. I don’t like that readers who enjoy books like Robyn are being pushed out so that everyone else in their cloudy bubble can feel a little more comfortable with the world by pretending we don’t exist. Nothing about this feels good to me. I guess I just need to be honest with how much this sucks, how much this hurts, and how angry I am about it. I am fucking angry.
Is making a subscription site a retreat from putting my books out there where others can find what I write and know they’re not alone? I really don’t know but I can’t stop wondering about it…
Sorry if I brought any of you down. The weather has been fantastic and I think I’m going to get away from the html for a while and get the rest of the sun before it sets. Peace, my dears.
For those new to ARC/Reviewing, let me give you a few simple guidelines because, hey, we all have different opinions on what shit means.
5 stars=Loved it!
4 stars=Liked it!
3 stars=Meh, it was alright.
2 stars=I didn’t like most of it but a few things kept me reading.
1 star=Hated it.
*Be honest. Legit, if I’ve fucked up and you hate my book, I need to know so I can improve as a writer.
*You are not required to write a long ass review. Just do what makes you comfortable .
*Amazon will not allow reviews in exchange for free books anymore. They will allow free books to be given and a reader to voluntarily choose to review–In case you guys didn’t realize, you are not obligated to do anything. I know it and that’s why I’m so appreciative that you’re here to begin with. It’s important you know it too. If you’re having trouble with the right wording for this statement, I pulled this off a website which should be acceptable.
“I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.”
*I’m pretty focused on Amazon at the moment because of visibility, but if you’re all hooked up with Goodreads or Smashwords, by all means. Oh, if you’re in another country and reviewing, you can either review on the US site or the one you’re connected to–I’m not a 100% sure how it works. I’m sure it’ll be good, whatever you do. <3 I’m going to do a series of links at the bottom and it’s up to you where you actually want to post the review.
