Summer update

This summer I decided to leave the little Island I live on and go and work on the Spanish mainland. I found a small seaside town close to Malaga where I have now been for over a month. The tourists here are generally older than where I usually am and it’s a great change.
Due to this move my writing has suffered. I was hoping to finish the next installment of Nat Smiley and finish off another novella called Body Double. I don’t think they will be ready until the end of August but I will keep you posted through here.
Have a great summer, and make lots of love!
A special thanks to the readers at Barnes & Nobel and IBooks, for finding me

All my Erotic novellas for FREE

Yes, all my novellas are free on Smashwords and partners.

It is now 12.25AM CET (Europe). I will keep them free until 12.25AM 29 of May. That's 24 hours from now.

This is to celebrate my first year as an Erotica writer.

Quality or quantity

When I published my first novella, Work Experience, on Smashwords almost a year ago, I would sit in front of my computer and click Refresh every ten minutes. I had put the book on free for 24 hours and when the promotion was over I had my champagne glass ready to celebrate the hundreds of books I would sell. Guess what? No sales, not the first hour, not the first day, and not the first month. Devastated and highly questioning my ability to write I sat down and made lists of things I wanted to find out. Then I did my research, and what I found was that most people who sell decent amounts of books have several books on sale be it a series or stand alone.
“Everyone knows that”, you might say. I didn’t, but I am a quick learner. I locked my doors, and made a large pot of tea, and then I went to work. I wrote several more books in the Nat Smiley series, and I did some research on Amazon’s KDP. It was more complicated to set up and account on Amazon, but I did it and when it was done, so was my new novellas. I unpublished on Smashwords, because Amazon doesn’t let you have your books on other sites if you are enrolled in KDP.
On an early morning I uploaded three novellas to KDP and put them for free for 24 hours. This time I did not sit and click refresh every ten minutes. I went to work. When I came home, I had several hundreds free download, and the next morning I actually had some sales too. I was a happy camper!
So, what does this have to do with the subject of this article? Sadly, to be able to write fast enough to be able to publish a new novella every month, some things have to be put on the side, or don half assed. Editing comes to mind. Yes, I am aware that the reader expects the highest quality in editing when they buy a book from us Indie writers, we should be on par with the traditionally published authors. But, there is one big difference; most of us don’t have hundreds or thousands of dollars to invest in an editor. We have friends or family that reads our books and help us. They take the time to do it because they believe in us, but they are not professionals. I would love to be able to e-mail my manuscript and get it back perfectly edited, but sadly I don’t have the cash to do it, yet.
Where does that leave us, the author and the reader? The author does the best he or she can do, and the reader buys a book with a story they like (hopefully) but with some grammatical errors. We price our books much lower than the traditionally published authors because we know, or at least I know, my novellas don’t have the same standard as the others. But, I believe in my stories and I hope that the reader will enjoy them and forgive me for my errors.
