Some stories are not mine to tell

ceb42e80fb86316ddec0fdb8783d0610Dear Diary,

I am a story weaver. A wordsmith. I write erotica, horror, supernatural, historical fiction, science fiction (occasionally), fantasy, and romance. Mostly under pen names, of course, but I do so because I have a genuine and passionate love for writing. Sometimes I even blend two or more of these genres just for fun, and I can do that because they are my stories, and I can pretty much do whatever I want with them.

Some stories are just not mine to tell, however.

Like what happened last night. I know I posted that I was in the hospital with Natalie, and many of you have written me expressing concern. I appreciate that, and so does Natalie. However, the reason why is… delicate, and I promised her I would not make the reasons behind the hospital visit public. This is my Diary, not hers, and I promised I would be candid and open with my life. Not hers. Or anyone else’s.

That being said, she knows how to log in to my Diary, so if she wishes to discuss anything under her own name, she can.

And with that, I am done talking about it.

Now as far as author issues are concerned, I primped the Patreon a bit (adding a goal and reward for reaching said goal), finalized my preorders, and spent the majority of the day doing the red revision (which I’m about halfway through) for The Qedesha’s Handmaiden, the end of the Qedesha Trilogy. It is turning out to be a doozy. You’ll see.

Anyway, for your convenience, here are my preorder releases for the upcoming months:

 

Preorders

March: The Champion’s Gift (A Qedesha Story)

April: Cramming Sis! Again!

May: Voyeur: Season 1, Episode 4

 

Several of you have asked why I’m doing preorders like this. The answer is simple: advertising. Amazon advertises preorders up to their releases in protuberant positions (to encourage authors to make use of the preorder system), and when the book is finally released, they (albeit in a different way) do the same thing. Since erotica authors can’t advertise traditionally within the Amazon ecosystem, this is the next best thing. Basically, after doing some research, I figured out how to optimize their book listing algorithm.

The more you know.

I’m going to go visit Natalie, so I’ll close this entry here. I’m going to work like hell tomorrow to finish the red revision of The Qedesha’s Handmaiden because I’m seriously considering giving a free copy of it away to any of you who purchase its predecessor, The Champion’s Gift.

I’m thinking about it.

Goodnight.

I love you all.

Thank you for reading.

    Thats completely understandable that Natalie doesnt want her peronal life out there for the world to know, thats her choice after all. Good luck on your work tomorrow hope you accomplish all you want to.

      Thanks for understanding. You’d be surprised how many people don’t – who think they are somehow entitled to know…
