In most people’s lives there come times that necessitate a somewhat exorbitant amount of soul searching and healing. Mine came a few months ago with the realization that seven years of my life turned out to be a lie. One of the benefits, however, of being bombarded by such massive deception is you learn to recognize much better what is real. As a result, I have not only healed, but I am thriving as far as my personal life goes. And I am preparing myself to jump back into endeavors that I have temporarily abandoned.
Quite a few changes have taken place since my absence, both personally and in the field of erotica writing. To touch on all of them in this post would take quite a bit of space, but it is almost heartwarming to see more and more erotica authors discovering the fallacies of dealing with Amazon and seriously looking for other venues. A handful of independent publishers and distributors are already starting to benefit from this, and I expect more and more authors as well as readers will benefit also. I will also share news soon of a new erotica ebook website that is in the process of being put together, a project that I am personally rather excited about. Stay tuned. 🙂
I’ve recently been working on answering emails and updating sites which have gone grossly neglected. (When I go into hiding, I REALLY go into hiding!!) Corrections to my Links page are almost complete. Creating a new Facebook page is on my “to do” list, so that link is currently non-functional, but everything else should work correctly now, including the link to my Tumblr page, which I had to create again from scratch. In my absence, Tumblr apparently found something even too extreme for them (which is saying a LOT!!), and decided to just arbitrarily cancel my entire account. Not that big of a deal to open a new one, but I did lose followers there that numbered in the hundreds. Barnes & Noble apparently changed their paging system somehow, but that link is fixed now also.
The biggest change for me personally is that not only do I have a new partner in life, but also a new “partner in crime”, so to speak, in my erotica writing endeavors. She is more than excited to collaborate with me on future projects, and I am thrilled with the possibility of including that “woman’s touch” in the stories we come up with. Yes, we are about to become that all too rare commodity in the business, the husband/wife erotica writing team. 🙂
Is my life awesome, or what?
