My New Book & Everything Going Wrong

Everything went terribly wrong with this new release, but somehow it still worked out, let me tell you how.

First of all, I published the book directly to Amazon without a pre-order period. I was all about the pre-orders in the past, but as I have been having less and less time to devote to promoting them, I have been doing them less and less until now when I just publish to Amazon the day before I plan for the book to be live.

Amazon says it can take up to three days for a book to go live once you’ve hit publish, but I have never had a book take three days before. They’re usually up within a day or two,

This latest one went live only a few hours after I went to publish it, which meant that none of my reviewers were expecting to review it yet (sorry guys!) so there weren’t any reviews.

Then there was no promotion because I hadn’t had a chance to email y’all yet (hi!)

Then, the cover didn’t work. Something going on in Amazon’s back end, which I’m getting them to look at. But still, the second time anyone has seen this gorgeous cover (my email list saw it before y’all, sorry not sorry!)

But you know what, even without reviews and promotion and a cover (so, all of the important stuff), the book is selling!

I woke up this morning to sales of the book, and have been surprised to see them increasing as I ran around putting out fires.

I was so happy to see something in the blurb or the look inside or having enjoyed my previous works meant people were reaching for this new book.

So thank you all for your support if you’ve already purchased a copy!

If you have not purchased a copy though and want to know a little more about what all the fuss is over, well… here’s your chance…

He’s an alien. She’s a paranormal researcher. It couldn’t be any more perfect that it’s her he has to abduct.

When Jenny is taken from her bed in the middle of the night by little gray men – from a UFO conference of all places – she finds herself delivered into the arms of an unlikely suitor.

He is tall, broad, deadly sexy and purple.

Dr. Jora – or Jack, as he goes by – is as curious about Jenny as she is him, and an unlikely coupling begins to take shape.

But what happens when they return to Jack’s home planet and Jenny is forced to question everything she thought she knew about humanity and herself? Will Jack step up and be the strong man she needs, or will he slink away in search of greener pastures?

This is an alien age play romance with plenty of twists and turns. A short and dirty read for adventurous readers who love a bit of fun and sexy sprinkled in their stories.

Yes, I Am Available To Write Commissioned Stories!

Some of you have already noticed that earlier this week I added the commission me page to the website. I have had a good response so far, and of course, can always fit new commissions in so don’t hesitate with those emails guys!

For some time I have been receiving emails from people wanting to commission custom stories. At the start, I didn’t quite know what to do then after some time I discovered that this wasn’t uncommon for erotica and romance authors and many would write custom stories between releases for their biggest fans.

When I discovered this, I decided it was something I would have to give a try. The very next time I was approached, I offered to write the story – a hot little spanking tale the reader wanted that would have the main characters have hers and her husband’s names as a gift to him – I offered to write for market rates and she gleefully accepted. I then went to write the thing and was really happy to hear about how it had been a fantastic gift for the lady’s husband.

I have not stopped since.

If you are looking for an author to commission for your naughty erotic stories, you’ve found me! Read a little on my commission page then get in touch. I am always happy to help my readers!

Let’s get started!

Her Wild Gypsy Excerpt

If you have been following me on twitter, or are on the email list, you will have seen this excerpt already, but I wanted to share it here as I know not everyone is connected with me in these ways.

Squeee, love this book!

“You really want this, don’t you?” He asked.
“Yes.” I said honestly, breathlessly.
“Yes what?” He asked.
“Yes, daddy.” I told him, the words feeling both naughty and exciting. As though I had always been meant to say them, but had held back too much before. Now he had freed me.

Isn’t that just the best feeling ever!? You have this fetish you have always loved or wanted to try, or even just a word that feels too naughty to say, or too naughty to claim, and you do… and it’s such a massive win for you in claiming your desires.

Want more? Put a copy of Her Wild Gypsy in your cart now.

Until next time – happy reading!

Last Chance For Discounted Books!

A few of you have already taken advantage of the books I have for sale over at PayHip – an organization who offers me a higher royalty share which I pass on to you guys as a saving – but for those of you who have not taken advantage yet, you will want to buy up now!

The reason for this is I will be putting up the prices as of tomorrow because some ebook retailers price-match with PayHip – something I wasn’t aware of when I signed up – and that means that due to their reduced royalties, I am losing a significant chunk of change, something I cannot afford to do while supporting myself with my writing.

If you have not got those six books yet, go grab them now!

Otherwise, watch this space, as I have a book release coming very soon. There will be pre-orders and a cover reveal and all those other exciting things coming, if you haven’t already, sign up for the email newsletter and be one of the first to hear about this and other new releases!

Until next time – happy reading!

Yes girls can cum in their sleep, HuffPost!

I had to laugh today when a reader sent me a link to an article that HuffPost wrote about people cumming in their sleep without stimulation (“wet dreams”).

I laughed because I had already written about it, only mine was in the first person. Funnily enough too, when I wrote this, I was writing about my own experience – cumming in my sleep without physical stimulation – and in the research phase where I was looking for anyone who had written about women who did this, I came up with nothing.

For anyone who read my medium blog post (don’t forget to clap if you liked it!) and who wants to read more about the science of wet dreams, head on over to HuffPost to hear what they had to say. Yes, they found people to answer the questions I had, with science. Very grateful for that, but also quietly wondering what inspired them to investigate in the first place…

Ahead of the curve, as always!

My Irish Research Trip – Weeee!

I am a little excited – okay, a lot excited – about my pending trip to Ireland. The trip is a hybrid of a research trip and a holiday. It’s going to be amazing!

And I’m leaving tomorrow (squeeeeee! Can’t believe my luck!)

As y’all know, I have written two books featuring hawt Irish book boyfriends, I am not-so-secretly hoping to get some inspiration for a third and maybe a fourth book, should the country be fruitful.

Galway Baby Girl and Saint Paddy’s Daddy were both inspired by the men of the emerald isle. 

If it’s not a fruitful trip, well, I got to visit one of the best countries in the world and have a wonderful holiday filled with experiences I won’t forget in a hurry. Oh, and I explored different places that will feature in future books for sure.

So here is my letting y’all know I shall be on a hiatus from emails and social for a month. Don’t worry though, because when I am back I will respond to every one!

Try not to miss me too much!

 

Until next time – happy reading!
