Smashwords

I started my publishing adventure at Smashwords 3 years ago, with Sultry Shower. After a while of disappointing sales, I moved my books exclusively to Amazon, in the hope that sales would pick up.

The exclusivity I owed to Amazon in that period didn’t rapport the desired results, and only being allowed to distribute through them felt limiting.

It is therefore that I have decided to move my books back to Smashwords. They’ll still be available at Amazon, but no longer in exclusivity (including as free downloads for Kindle Unlimited subscribers.)

What is Smashwords?

Smashwords is a fast-growing competitor to Amazon on the eBook market. They offer authors a platform to create, publish, and distribute their books while aiming at maximum creative liberty for the author, and a convenient and hassle-free reading experience for readers. Books at Smashwords are available in a variety of formats (epub, mobi, pdf,...) and are accessible from all devices, or from their web reader.

If you don’t have an account already, hop on over to their store, create an account in 3 easy clicks, and start shopping, for yourself, or for your friends and families. Holidays are coming up, and you can never have enough present ideas.

You can find my books on Smashwords here.

Be sure to bookmark my website www.lustysoulbooks.com for other news related to my work.

Hope to see you there.

NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, is a yearly global event that takes place in the month of November. Writers, professionals and beginners, or aspiring writers, commit themselves to writing a draft story of 60000 words.

My personal goal isn't quite as ambitious; I have chosen to commit to 40000 words, of which the first 10000 are a fact. Look up my project under the name Lusty Soul

I'm not telling too much about the project yet, but my patrons on Patreon have exclusive access to the online draft. One thing I can say is that I am exploring other genres for this story than the erotica you are used from me. No sex this time, but plenty of suspense, action, a healthy dose of humor, and maybe, a happy ending? Not sure yet, the story is in constant shift. But I am already very excited of where it is headed.

The working title is "Converging Tracks," and at the rate it is going, I may have a big announcement coming by the beginning of next year.

Stay tuned.

October 15, 2018

Since I started writing erotica, I have published 4 stories at Amazon—Sultry shower, Spicy Dinner, The Haircut, The Fence—but I have kept again as many in (what feels like) eternal draft. Stories I started but never finished, or haven't finished yet, for various reasons. Mostly because, as I was working on them, I encountered the limitations of my immature skills as an author. In other words, I felt not ready yet, not skilled enough yet, to do these stories justice.

I keep working hard to improve both my craft and my English, and I see a positive evolution with every new story I publish.

In the meantime, I want to keep these stories alive, and perhaps rekindle my connection with them, by posting them here in monthly installments.

The first story to make a reappearance is Lady and Vagabond
