Supernatural-FINAL

What happens when a swinger, a lady sword swallower and a lady midget sword swallower meet?

This intriguing scenario is explored in my new sexy, funny, naughty supernatural novella SWINGING WITH THE SUPERNATURAL released today on Amazon and Smashwords just in time for Halloween. This is an updated and expanded version of the short story that was originally included in my former publisher’s INDULGENCE digital and print anthology six years ago. With the publishing of this new novella, I have relaunched all of the work previously released by my former publisher Lazy Day Publishing.

While I kept much of the original story, I added some background, and revised some scenes and created a new carnival troupe — Cirque Mystérieuse. However, the naughty, irreverent, funny and sexy elements of my first stab at supernatural, paranormal erotica have also been retained.

SWINGING WITH THE SUPERNATURAL focuses on swinger Willy Roamer’s unusual and sexy trip to the carnival to watch a performance from the traveling carnival troupe Cirque Mystérieuse.  During his adventure, Willy meets a lady sword swallower and a lady midget sword swallower and discovers some supernatural secrets possessed by the troupe Cirque Mystérieuse.

It’s a very sexy and different kind of story written in the same frank and unflinching manner as my readers of my other erotica novels have come to enjoy. I wanted to combine my brand of real-life erotic fiction with a supernatural story, including vampires and shapeshifters. I’ve even added some new interesting wrinkles to these familiar mythic creatures, too.

Even though I haven’t shared my writing the supernatural realm before this story, I was deeply influenced by Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and other fantasy and paranormal authors that are too numerous to name. I did explore supernatural stories as a youth and those will be shared in my upcoming short story collection.

Kudos again goes to graphic artist Dancinee Jennings, who has created the covers for my six previous indie books, for delivering another classy and sexy cover.

I must say indie publishing has been quite liberating for me. In the past year, I have published seven books with many more ahead. This is my eighth book and will the last one I will share in 2017.

You can check out all of my books, including novels and poetry collections, on my Amazon author’s page here.

I will be back with my science fiction novella, and two more poetry books in 2018.

As always, stay tuned.

I am an Indie Author…once again

Now…I truly am an indie author once again…

I guess I should thank my former publisher Blushing Books for this fortuitous opportunity.

This week they took down from Amazon Kindle the third and final novel INDULGENCE I had published with the former Lazy Day Publishing. I had contributed a story entitled, “Swinging with Supernatural,” to the paranormal erotica anthology exploring the adventures of swinger Willy Roamer and his visit to a sexy Carnival. I will expand Willy’s adventures in a later book, but more on that later.

So the publishing relationship I started with Lazy Day Publishing, which began when they reached out to me through this blog in July 2010, is now officially over. The only book I have currently available is my first novel LETTERS FROM CYBERSPACE I published myself with  iUniverse 15 years ago when Indie publishing was viewed with a lot more derision from readers and the literary world than it is today. Frankly, the book’s cover is awful, but my novel is not and it is still worth a read. Admittedly, I was still finding my writing style at the time, but my debut novel still is sexy and funny in parts even though it lacks the frank boldness of my later books. However, it does provide readers an opportunity to experience my writing about a young female protagonist’s sexual awakening and detailing her intriguing point of view concerning sex, the Internet, etc. At some point, I will revise this novel and bring it out again with a new title and cover.

Dear readers, I am sorry about the confusion in recent months involving my books and their vanishing availability. I hope to clarify the status of my current and future works with this post and in the coming months.

As for Blushing Books, I am not providing a link to their site. You can draw your own conclusion about how I feel about them and other publishers.

However, let me stress this: I will never be at the whim of publishers again and all of my work will always be available for purchase online. I worked too hard for too long to have my writing disappear from the Internet overnight.

NO MORE PUBLISHERS FOR ME.

It is a brave new literary world and we no longer need publishers to share our work. Avoid them if you can. I’d rather have MY work out there as opposed to someone else’s revised version of it.

Who knows more about my stories and work than I do?

Toward that end, I am making excellent progress editing a new revised version of my novel MONOGAMY SUCKS. In a couple of weeks, I will have a final draft completed that my friend and fellow author Scarlett Hartgrove will review in preparation for my Indie publishing launch in the fall. I have quite enjoyed adding in scenes, chapters and thoughts of my main character Jake Dalmas that my publisher edited out. I feel this version is closer to my original draft I initially envisioned and completed in the late 1990s.

Once MONOGAMY SUCKS is relaunched, I will work toward bringing out my sequel to MONOGAMY SUCKS entitled RELATIONSHIPS SUCK, which continues Jake Dalmas’ story and explores the limits and issues involving relationships much as the previous book took on monogamy. I believe it is funny and intriguing like the first novel, and actually even sexier and naughtier in parts. It moves Jake’s story forward in cool and sexy ways. I can’t wait to share it with you.

After both novels are out, I plan to tackle many other books including a science fiction novella based on a short story I had written at 18, and a diary novel about hilarious and foolish days of working at a public relations agency. Eventually, I plan on bringing out a new version of my novel DEAR HEF.

Suffice to say, I am not going away. I am more excited about my writing future than ever before. I have a lot more to say and books to write my dear readers and fellow authors.

Stay tuned. The future is now in the publishing world.
