Putting “Sultry Shower” to rest

Sultry Shower was my first foray into the craft of erotic literature. Since it’s just one scene, technically, the term “story” is a misnomer.

I always felt bad about asking money for it. When I first published it, on Smashwords, I had intended for it to be free forever, or as a companion perk for my other stories. But when I moved to Amazon, suddenly the option to offer my work for free, safe for temporary promotions, was gone.

I kept the price as low as Amazon would allow me, but, who am I kidding, no-one was interested in it anyway, free or otherwise.

So I decided to pull it from Amazon, after a last 5-day promo.

I’m putting the finishing touch to my newest long-overdue story The Fence, and I intend to include Sultry Shower as a freebie add-on. Next to that, Sultry Shower will find its way either to my website or to some other channel where I can offer it as a free taste of what I am all about.

As usual, I like to thank my readers and writing gang on the social media for the continued support. I am undeserving of your unwavering patience.

Crowdfunding my favorite band – free book giveaway

My favorite band PERSEFONE have launched a crowdfunding campaign for their new upcoming album AATHMA.

AATHMA will be the 5th studio album of the Andorran Progressive Technical Deat Metal band. Their style, themes, and virtuosity can only be described with superlatives. Even if you’re not a fan of metal, or of their specific and unique sound, be sure to give them a listen and help them raise the money so they can hit the studio and get that new album out ASAP!

To make things more interesting for you, I’m throwing in a free book with every pledge of at least €10. You can pledge as little as €8, but every amount over that will get you all kinds of goodies, including the album, shirts, hoodies, and even a meet and greet with the band or a guest appearance on your own band’s album.

So, let’s summarize:

  • Head over to Verkami and support Persefone’s crowdfunding campaign.
  • Forward the confirmation email to me, showing you have pledged at least €10
  • Have a free pick from any of my books, including my new project which will be coming soon

Need any more reasons to be convinced: Check out the official video of Spiritual Migration of their previous eponymous album:

P.S. Yes, you read that right: I’m working on a new story, and it will be ready soon. Stay tuned for more news.

Sultry Shower at Kindle Unlimited

My first short story Sultry Shower is now available in the Kindle Unlimited catalog. It is free until June 5, so don’t hesitate to pick up a copy for you or for your friends.
Be sure to leave a review.

I moved Sultry Shower to Kindle Unlimited (KU), meaning that it’s available exclusively on Amazon for a period of 90 days. If all goes well for my first short story, I’ll be thinking about moving my other books to KU as well. But for the time being, The Haircut andSpicy Dinner for Three are still available at all major retailers.

Some reviews of Sultry Shower:

“The way this short story is written, in 2nd person, makes it deliciously perfect because it lets you, the reader, drop right into the fantasy and imagine yourself as the protagonist. Isn’t that part of the point of reading erotica? Someone else is doing the work of creating the fantasy for us, we just to go along for the ride? That’s exactly what this short story is. A short and very sweet ride :)”

“This book is all about a wonderful wake-up call. A great morning wake up call. Getting dirty while in the shower getting clean!!If you are looking for hot steamy morning read this book is for you.

“This was a lovely piece of sexy prose. It’s not exactly a story, but it’s hot and sensual, and it felt good to read it. I’ll be reading more Lusty Soul works soon!”

After June 5, the price will go up to 99cts. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Make it free!

I have made my book Sultry Shower available at Amazon, as well as at Smashwords, Barnes & Noble and iTunes. However, Amazon doesn’t allow an author to offer their books for free.

I’ve always intended for Sultry Shower to be a free book, as it is very short, and was mainly intended as a teaser for Spicy Dinner for Three, which will become available on November 11.

Now there is a way to force the price on Amazon to drop down to zero, but I need your help for that.

Go the their online store, scroll down until you see ‘Tell us about a lower price‘, just underneath the book details, and let Amazon know of a lower price. Use one of the links of the other stores mentioned above. When they get enough feedback, they’ll eventually adapt their price as well, or so I’m told.

Don’t forget, you can still earn a free copy of Spicy dinner for Three by sharing the news of the upcoming release. November 11 is almost upon us

Start The Presses

With the help of my proofreaders, and after a few weeks of sacrificing sleep, I have finally finished the revision of Spicy Dinner for Three.

If you’ve read the original draft that was once a story here on this blog, you won’t recognize the soon-to-be-published result. I added about 5000 words, thoroughly tackled the language and made sure the result was worthy of my first real published novel. I hope you’ll all agree.

I’m uploading my manuscript to Smashwords this weekend, where it’ll go through the letter cruncher, over the next days, to be spewed out as an eBook in all possible formats and distributed to all major retailers on November 11, if all goes according to plan.

To promote this exciting event, I’m giving away coupons for a discount or even a free copy.

What do you have to do?

Leave a review of my teaser novel Sultry Shower on Smashwords or your preferred retailer. If you get a confirmation email, forward it to me, and I’ll reply with a 50% discount code.

Share this message on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus or Tumblr. The first 10 shares that I can find on the internet will be rewarded with a free copy. That’s 100% discount, just for hitting that share button!

Once November 11 is behind us, I intend to take a few weeks off from writing. I have plenty of other projects lined up to share with the world, but I need to recharge my battery.

Enjoy the weekend. Take good care of each other.
