Editing a 200 page book so hang with me. As soon as that is finished, more erotica is coming (or cumming!)

The benefits of writing short form erotica of 5K, 10K or even 20K words means  you can get a book out  in  less than a week.  Sadly,  I’m not the best erotica writer–I admit it.  I try really hard, though.  I have the imagination, for sure,  and I’ve become fascinated with Futa women (mainly thanks to Reed James, Julie Law and a few others) for the past several months.  I’ve got 3 Futa series going at the  same time right now.  I don’t like abandoning series, I’ve read too many authors who have done that. And, I hate to  be left hanging wondering what happened to the protagonists.

The downside to writing erotica short stories . . . 

Right now, I’m writing several books under another pen name: sci-fi, and nonfiction.  But, that’s not helping my erotica.  I’ve never been one  to hire ghost writers, it’s just not my style.  I have ghostwritten for other authors, so I don’t have an aversion to it; it’s just hard enough to break even on erotica as it is. I hate spending  money and not knowing if I’ll break even on the book.

So, hang with me. This week, I’m putting my Futa series into bundles, as well as my HuCow series. And, I’m writing the next installment of Galactic Futa.  But, right now- I’m editing a nonfiction book.

Love you guys,

HK

 

 

 

Worthwhile Authors to read this week Bella Swann Books.

bella swannI’ve been meaning to do this for a week, but I haven’t been able to get around to it.  Last weekend, I read several authors who are just  outstanding writers.

Bella Swann Erotica – is one of the most talented writers ever to write witty erotica prose. I don’t say that lightly.  She’s a better writer than I am, and I’m not afraid to admit it.   If you get a change, take some time and buy one or more of her books.  You’ll be glad you did.

Beta readers needed- not just for erotica

too-much-for-amazonI write under several pen  names.  And, it’s not all erotica.  I write romance and  I’m also starting to outline some sci-fi (both with romance and without).

If you’ d like to beta read some drafts, I’d be happy to talk with you.  There are a few things I ask.

  1. If it’s non-erotica, I’d like  for you to commit to leaving a review of the books after it goes up on Amazon.  Not a one or two word fluff  review, but an honest appraisal.  If you don’t like the book, that’s fine also.
  2. You must be willing to sign (e-signature) a simple statement saying you will not disclose the draft to anyone else.
  3. The beta read must be timely.  Usually within a week of when you receive it depending on the length.  I understand many people can’t finish a whole novel in a week: there’s a thing called life.  LOL
  4. Have fun.  Tell me what you don’t like and where the book has typos and shortcomings.

If you think you’d like to beta read a book, shoot me an  email at heatherkeyesxxx@gmail.com

Thanks,

 

 

The story behind Communion

Ah, someone asked me the other day why all of these books are not up on Amazon.  Well, there’s a story behind the book “Communion” and the werewolf series.

When I started out, I wrote horror and paranormal sci-fi.  When I started writing erotica, this was the first series I put out.  There are 10 book total.

I’m thinking about revamping the books and making it into a novel.  There is certainly enough material to do that; not sure how long it would take.

Some of  the books in the series are not there.  Over  time, Amazon banned a few because readers started in the middle without understanding the beginning of how it all started.  So, I guess it was a little more an Amazon’s standards could bear- and I guess some readers were offended by the dark nature of the material and the project.

This is one of the books that survived.  (for now anyway)

Communion

Caught in a pickle writing two erotica series—any thoughts or suggestions?

  • Need suggestions on finishing two projects;
  • Some readers want me to stop publishing each episode piece by piece and just publish the whole first season at one time;
  • What are your thoughts?  Comment here or send me an email.

I opened up my email this morning and one of my biggest fans gave me a suggestion I need to take to heart.  And, she’s not the first person to mention this.

She reads nearly everything I publish and I take her suggestions seriously and with a great amount of respect. She’s never steered me in the wrong direction.

I have two series out right now:

futa-2-taking-the-leaderGalactic Futa 4 CoverFuta Island: where a mad scientist biologically created shemales on a remote tropical island and periodically men wash up on shore. All sorts of nasty things happen to them as the women need male sperm to populate.

Galactic Futa: a sci-fi erotic adventure of Futa warriors saving the galaxy, one adventure at a time, after a devastating Civil War.  These nasty chicks-with-dicks are badass, but need cum to survive.

So far, I have been putting out one book at a time.  But, my friend and fan, Peggy, wants me to put out the whole first season of both series out to market at one time.

I’m weighing the odds and the consequences.  Readers typically don’t like authors who abandon a series in the middle of the project.  In a lot of ways it is like television.  If you think back, there have been many television shows picked back up into syndication after they were canceled right in the middle of the regular season.

.Fans wrote petitions to their local stations and to the networks asking the executives to reconsider canceling the shows.  (Family Guy and Futarama are two shows that come to mind) And, even though I’m not canceling my erotica series … it would take a while to write 18 more short stories of each series to finish out the first season.   Would the series get cold? Would readers come back to it? That’s the question.

It will certainly take me a while to write the complete season for both of the series.  I’m afraid if I don’t continue to publish one by one the books will get cold, lost in the shuffle and most likely abandoned by readers.  As it stands now I have a certain amount of followers looking forward to the next installment… most of which are not on Amazon. In fact, if the truth by known, Amazon (although they control 80% of the book publishing market) only accounts for 18% of my monthly gross sales.  Why? because I have a huge email list.  Maybe not huge to some authors, but it is to me.  And, many of my readers are willing to pay for a book (through PayPal) before it hits Amazon bookshelves.

sandy cross cover 004It happened that way with Sandy Cross.  This is a vampire romance (with significant erotica mixed in) under a different pen name that will hit the Amazon shelves in April.  But, I’ve already made almost $1,800 off the book through PayPal.

So, … (back to my question)

What do you think? It would take me at least a few months to complete the first season for each project Futa Island and Galactic Futa.

Should I continue to write one book at a time or publish the complete first season at one time?  Hoping I will still have the fan base when it’s completed. Incidentally, Peggy isn’t the only reader who wants me to stop publish one episode at a time and just finish writing the whole first season.  Out of the 300+ readers who buy my books through PayPal, I would say over 20 have expressed interest in getting the whole first season at one time.

So, readers and writers…what are your thoughts?
