In a recent discussion with my friend/editor, Julia, she said I ignored the lucrative market of erotica in my writings; this is not true, as I wrote three stories-none of which sold well.
Horny Devil Publishing House
I have nothing against writing erotica, or even reading it. In 2013 I was offered a contract with HDP http://alsdomain.weebly.com/whats-happening/horny-devil , which for many reasons I turned down. The main reason being their remit is keep it legal, and anything goes-the more violent, the better. A little rough sex can be arousing, but the things they allowed turned my stomach. Do I re-think my decision- yes, everyday. Do I think I made the correct call-I can't say. I knew a lady who worked for them, she told me she sells more of her work than HDP do.
Sexual Explosions 1
This was to have been the opening book in a short series about a middle-aged couple enjoying erotic romance, after meeting in a hospital waiting room. However, after over 3,000 on line reads in only three months https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32234 / http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008BK1WDK the book never sold. This book contains an account of a True Crime, I know the crime was committed because I reported the item stolen.
The Love of the Sea.
This book is the intermediate read between my friend's blog post, and my recent novella http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EZ84216 / https://www.draft2digital.com/book/32521 at the time of writing this version, I had not thought about doing a novella length book.
A Sailor's Love
This is the 101 page edition of the story which started life as a 1,500 word blog for a friend. I could have gone on to complete a novel, but after 14 months, I decided to call it a day https://www.draft2digital.com/book/34522 / http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ODE4GIG I enjoyed writing the story, and would have liked to either expand this story,or write another one for Jannine & Helmut, but that is up to the readers. After two previous failed novellas, I am not sure if I want to devote such a large amount of time to something nobody will want http://alsdomain.weebly.com/at-the-blogstop/back-in-shorts.
