I am published!

  Finally, I figured out how to get my completed book of short stories on Amazon.  That means I am officially published. I started with my book of erotic short stories since it was getting close to 5000 reads on an online writing app. I hope it won't hurt my sales. It is a novella-length book with four unique stories giving a glimpse into the characters' lives that lead to a romantic encounter.  * Warnings: Tales are purely fictional and for the purpose of entertainment only. There are explicit depictions of sexual acts, graphic adult language, group sex, possession, MMF sex, consensual sex, adult characters, older characters I even made a Spotify playlist for it to enjoy while you read alone or with a partner. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3NYB0xpeNZPZvxtBu1DQEy?si=8fb0af8d9967432c The book: Amazon     or      Kindle Unlimited A debut erotic collection of 4 short stories. Each story in Kissing in the Rain has captured the characters in a small moment of time that leads to

November writing update

Image
  It's November,  my birthday month and the anniversary of the day my brother died. Both are just a day apart. The first week of November is hard for me and I having been mourning every year since that fateful day when he gave his life to save someone else. 💔 I was just getting to know him and then he was gone. It's also Nanowrimo. The writers fast track time of the year. This month writers are expected to write 50k words or what is considered a complete book. Social media is filled with anxiety, depression and some proud moments of meetingb thy he daily goals or crushing them. I don't take part. For the last two years that I even knew about it, I did the large chunk of my writing in October knowing, November is a rough time. So I'm hashtagging  #nanowrimounofficial or #unofficialnanowrimo when I post word count goals. I set up a kdp account earlier and have been considering writing on Vella. I have two new wips I am working on. The first is a holiday themed story base

Not much writing

  This month, has been full of doubts and depression. I got a few good reviews for some of my stories but then all of a sudden, Wattpad takes down Kissing in the Rain.  I had just over 1600 reads which was the first time I had reached over 1k reads on any of my stories.  I even had an overpriced book cover made.  That whole situation really stung. But I decided to wear it as a badge of honor and put the entire story that was better edited on Inkitt where I am almost up to 600 reads in under a month. I didn't edit the last story. I will before publishing.  Here's two encouraging reviews. I  am getting reads and votes, but I wonder if people aren't leaving a review because they don't want others to know they are reading erotic short stories.  Do other writers of erotic works have the same problem?  Anyways, Beef Witch You is done just need hard edit and formatting. I want to publish more than one book at a time because I want the freedom of writing whatever I want and not

September already update.

  Good gravy!! It's already September. Half of the month is gone by. Hi, my lovely readers!! I did it yall!! I finished my first draft of my novella Beef Witch You .  To type the words The End.    Life changing. I completed something that was not on my list of life things. I have written 2 complete novellas.  Kissing in the Rain: an erotic short story collection  Beef Witch You   (it's a semi-light hearted fun witch fantasy) I  still have a bit more editing, but I created the book cover myself and found a pro to make a promotional video for the story. I think it turned out nice.  Did you know that I have a Spotify playlist for Beef Witch You?  I paid for some advertising last month, but it didn't help as much as I expected.  I made a tiktok page but I don't want to be in front of a camera. I have no desire to attempt any of the latest trends and since I am a new writer...not a new actor, I wonder how it will help me gain exposure for my writing.  Last night I wrote stor

The editing conversation

  The editing debate...  I am in the category of broke writers. I invested in grammarly premium, under $200 (after using it several times, I can see the difference and now I catch more errors while writing) I also had a lot of stomach aches, frustration and tears, trying to figure out how to rewrite something that I thought was fine; but with editing sounded better. I sometimes worry that I will lose what I think is the originality of my voice. But then I  think, do readers really care about my voice or just want to read a great story.  On grammarly, I don't stop editing until I get that 100 score, then go back like the rebel I sometimes am, and change a word that they said would be too difficult for knowledgeable readers. Which drops my score to 99. As a person who likes getting the best score possible, it's a constant source of anxiety for me. Grammarly offers structural editing pros.  I checked the price for one chapter of one of my current wip novellas. I edited using their
