The Indie Version of Novel Monogamy Sucks is Here….

Monogamy-Sucks2

Jake Dalmas’ wild swinging adventures have entered the indie publishing world with the launch of a new version of my novel MONOGAMY SUCKS on Amazon today.  (Look for a Smashwords launch soon as well) As I promised late last year after former publisher Blushing Books gave me back the publishing rights, Jake’s tales would live again in a newly edited version that is much closer to the original novel I began working on in March 1998.

I have restored key scenes to my novel deleted by my original publisher Lazy Day Publishing, including more of Jake’s sexual past and background in the opening chapter, Jake’s additional thoughts about the people he meets and the provocative world he explores, and an entire chapter about internet censorship from a once popular internet service.

Although my novel has been updated I want to assure you, dear reader, that the core of the story, my frank, explicit and honest prose, and most notably  Jake’s sardonic humor as he searches for sexual peace of mind, remains the same. Jake’s stories will make you laugh, may turn you on, but it is also my hope my novel make you think more openly about conventional societal norms such as monogamy, relationships, and marriage,  and still taboo subjects, including swinging, alternative and casual sex, and open relationships. The book is not intended to preach or tell anyone how to live, but to only to honestly present an alternative view in a humorous and entertaining manner.

Much praise goes to my friend and fellow author Scarlett Hartgrove for her excellent editing, advice and formatting expertise in helping me reshape and relaunch MONOGAMY SUCKS. I am very grateful for her help in making my transition into becoming an indie author a much smoother experience than I expected.

Many thanks also to book cover artist Dancinee Jennings who worked with me to put together the book’s new cover. She was recommended to me by fellow author Scarlett Hartgrove as Dancinee had created the cover for her debut novel At That Moment (The Eyes of March) (Volume 1).

I feel so liberated and vindicated with the indie launch of Monogamy Sucks. I knew I couldn’t allow Jake’s wild honest voice to stay silent. He is needed more than ever in this current world state of fear, hatred, intolerance, and divisiveness.

As I prepare to launch RELATIONSHIPS SUCK, the sequel to MONOGAMY SUCKS, early next year, the world of indie publishing seems unlimited to me now and so do my writing dreams. I have many more intriguing books planned. Stay tuned.

But for now, enjoy the return to the literary world of Jake Dalmas and his always funny, shocking and intriguing tales on the dark side of sex, life, and erotica.
