My Muse is a Demanding Mistress - Erotic Anthology

538 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Aussierotica

My Muse is a Demanding Mistress, published December 2012 by Xavier Edwards.

It has been a big year for me, going from not having any published stories at the start of the year, to having published 14 separate titles in the space of just over seven months (May - December, 2012).

My muse has been a very demanding mistress.

I don't know what it means to be prolific. I just write the stories that present themselves in my mind. My muse, whoever or wherever she is, has blessed me for the time being with a selection of tales that I can craft for the fan of erotic literature. So far, they've been almost entirely short stories, but the novellas are starting to arrive and, the novels shouldn't be too far behind them.

When I went into the publishing game, it was completely blind. As a male self-pub author in a female-dominated niche, I really had no idea what I was getting myself in for. I knew that my small collection of private readers who had read my early works were all very enthusiastic and encouraging in my work. Taking that huge leap into pressing the button labelled "Publish" took a lot longer than it should have to get that courage up. Now, I take a running jump at it whenever I can. Then, I struggled and procrastinated about what it would take to actually become a published author.

This is an anthology of my collected 2012 works, collated for your enjoyment with dedicated introductions for each title.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
