First World Problems

Right now this LJ is irritating me. More specifically, the hit counter is tick me off. It was sold so the website changed, but I don't remember how to get to the Sticky Post to change the info so it will start working again.

Nothing makes me madder than my own stupidity. LOL Why can't I remember where that is? Aaagghh. Yeah, if this is the biggest problem I have this week, I'll count my blessings.

DATELINE UPDATE
Ms Amazing Public Service
writer_dark_one
Well, nothing like a melodramatic subject line.

I put this in a reply to a comment, but thought I'd let everyone know. I'm going through one of my "writer's block" periods. It happens a couple times a year. No motivation to write sucks, but it always passes. It's one of the reasons I like to write more than I publish, so I'll have a backlog of stories to post/publish while I'm "down." I'm watching movies and reading books, and one day something will snap and I'll jump back into writing. Usually only lasts a few weeks.

I'm almost out of written erotica stories to publish, so I better get going soon. LOL Before I started publishing for money, I used to have 6 months to a year worth of Ms A/Wonder Woman/Etc stories to post (at one a month) so I almost never ran out of anything to post. Now I'm make a living doing this, so write less super heroine even though it is what I enjoy writing the most.

And honestly, you guys are my most "vocal" readers, willing to comment here or e-mail me with what you like, what you'd like to see in stories, what you don't like about what I post here or publish. Writers LOVE it when we get feedback, good or bad. How else do we know what the readers want? Sometimes that's all that keeps us going. I've been getting some e-mails from readers of the for sale stuff, and directing them here and to Mr. x
s site so they can enjoy the freebies, too. And maybe they'll continue to give me feedback.

I have 5 or 6 super heroine stories in progress for publishing for income (A couple Ms Amazing, a Lady Texas, a couple Justice Girl), and all of those Ms Americana stories I posted snippets from, too. I even have a couple of covers for Lady Texas and Justice Girl delivered, but haven't finished the books.

Hopefully soon I'll get back into it. I usually get the urge to write super heroines first. Wonder why? Hmmm.

Buying habits
Ms Amazing Public Service
writer_dark_one
I have a question for those of you who buy my super heroine fiction.

What site do you buy on? Amazon? Barnes & Noble? Smashwords? iBookstore? Kobo?

iBookstore (Apple) and Kobo have limited super heroine titles, since they reject at the drop of a hat.

Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble published all of my super heroine titles. Very few sales on B&N at all. Most of my sales are on Amazon, with a nice number on Smashwords.

I ask because Amazon has a program called Select which works with Kindle Universe. KU is where the reader pays $9.95 a month (I think) and "borrows" books for "free" for length of memberships. Very good for voracious readers. But if I put my books in Select, then they have to be exclusive to Amazon. It has a minimum length of exclusive of 90 days, and it can be extended. As long as the title is in Select, it can not be published on another site. But by being in Select and Kindle Universe, the writer can get "burrows" that pay at a lesser payout than an outright sale, but the total payout for borrows a month can be a lot more than all the sales of all the other sites combined.

But I hesitated to cut off readers who use other sites. Some people don't have Kindles. Smashwords pays the highest royalties, but Amazon sales many times as many copies. Add borrows, and...

So you see my dilemma. What to do?

I will test a super heroine title in the near future, to see how many borrows it gets. Super heroine is a pretty narrow genre/fetish. There might not be that many burrows, making it a mute point.

We'll see. But I'm very interested in your thoughts and buying habits.

Oh, one of the reasons it is important is the more buys a book has, especially in the first week of publication, the better it'll do in rankings, and get better visibility on sites like Amazon. So better sales, etc.. Sales rank and posted reviews are the key to selling books.

Grimme City Heroines Down And Out 2 Boxed Set (Grimme City Super Heroines in Peril)

Hello super heroine in peril fans! It's a mighty fine day to published another collection of super heroine stories set in my Grimme City universe. Ms Patriot, Patriot Girl, Ninja Girl, Silver Angel, and others are getting their sweet asses caught and being forced to do their captor's wicked bidding.

This collection is 12 stories, but is twice as long as the previous Grimme City Heroines Down & Out boxed set. Lots of captures, bondage, sex, unmasking, and sexual slavery. You know, the fun stuff.

Prices of the previous collections (both Ms Patriot and Grimme City) are being raised as sales drop and level off. So get this one while it's still priced like an individual story at $2.99.

Cover once again is by Angelic Kitten.

writer_dark_one
Hey gang, thought I'd share the beginning of a new Ms Patriot story I'm writing. Well, I started this last week, but haven't worked on it since. Yeah, bummer, but I got to write the bigger money makers first.

Anyway, I'm writing a bunch of shorter, sex-filled stories, fetishy type stories for the next Ms Patriot Down and Out collection.

The time has come for a new Ms Americana story (with most of the other Delta City heroines thrown in as well). I'll wait about a week and then submit to Mr. X for his free site. You get first viewing rights, everyone else gets sloppy seconds.

Lego_Joker has done his editing magic, so hopefully there will be far fewer typos and other mistakes within this story. I'm dividing it up into 4 parts due to his length. I hope you enjoy the story. Comments are welcome and encouraged, good or bad.
