but not for alcohol. Tomorrow the discount for the two books will end. There will be another Ms Patriot book published next week, running the same deal with the same group of writers. Oddly enough, not that many people outside of the writer's group are taking advantage of this first week discount.

Lady Texas: Bounce
Ms Patriot: Mobster's Milk Cow

Tomorrow (Friday, Oct 17)

Tomorrow my little group of ninja self-published writers will do our little "Promo" and see how the sales go at 99 cents. Remember, if you plan to buy a copy tomorrow through Sunday is the time to buy. After that the price goes up to the regular price of $2.99.

If it goes well, I may publish more at 99 cents for a few days to start, before raising the price. Unfortunately, most sites other than Amazon make 99 cents and especially FREE more difficult to do, but I'll see what I can do there, too.

EDIT TO ADD: Also, if you do buy one of my books, a review on Amazon would be greatly appreciated. Reviews have a lot of influence on some buyers. Thanks

News flash update letting you know kinda thing
Ms Amazing Public Service
writer_dark_one
Leggo_Joker has worked really hard editing, and now the moment of truth as arrived.

This week I'll publish two stories on Amazon, in their Select / Kindle Unlimited program. They will be exclusive to Amazon for 90 days. Me and 30 other writers are publishing at the same time, trying to boost sales by charging only 99 cents Friday thru Sunday. The big event is Friday, the BUYING DAY. But as soon as the books are available, they will be at 99 cents. And you can buy them at any time. Monday the price on mine will go to $2.99. Sometime during the 90 days Select period I can give them away for FREE. Free hasn't worked on my non super heroine books, except I gave away a lot of books and got no sales boost on other titles. But who knows, I might offer them for free towards the end of the 90 period or right after Christmas to get the attention of new Kindle owners. If so, I'll let you guys know.

Anyway, tomorrow I'll publish two titles: Lady Texas: Bounce and Ms Patriot: Mobster's Milk Cow. Both are completely new stories, never posted anywhere. Recently some of my books have taken over 48 hours before they go live on Amazon, but once they are live I'll post the links here and on SHIB forum.

Here are the covers:

Lady Texas Bounce
Ms_Patriot_Mobsters_Milk_Cow

Next week, I'll post a "Halloween" story. Really, it only has a witch, so... It has been posted on this blog before, as Ms Americana: Nightmare Witch Switch. New title is "Ms Patriot: Wicked Witch Switch" It does have a new first chapter added, and some scenes changed because they are inappropriate content for most ebook sites. It will be part of the Halloween event with the same authors, will be be published at 99 cents through the next week's Sunday (Oct 24th thru Oct 27).

Here is the cover:

On the road to recovery
Ms Amazing Public Service

As it, I'm writing again! Wahoo! I finished Ms Patriot: Mobster's Milk Cow yesterday. First Draft anyways. Ms Patriot goes up against mob boss Erica Sambino, and you know that never goes well for our sexy heroine.

Today I'm working on Lady Texas: Bounce (I no longer like the title, but I already have a cover I paid for so it stays). Two of five chapters written on that one. After I finish "Bounce" then I'll jump on the next Ms Americana story. Still not sure which one that will be, since they are all about the same percentage done.

And since I'm happy, and LJ has generously given me a lot more space, here are some pictures.

Gagged

A gagged beauty drooling. What's not to like, right? Especially if she is BRENDA WADE or even her alter ego Ms Amercana captured and unmasked.

Back to writing

I might be throwing off my writing funk. I finished a couple erotica stories this week, and have two more half written. Once they are done, I'll jump onto the two super heroine stories I have half written (one since last spring) - a Lady Texas story and a new Ms Patriot milking story. I have a cover for the Lady Texas story, and one commissioned for the Ms Patriot story.

Then I can look at the Ms Americana stories.

Feels good to be writing again. Still going a little slow, but it'll pick up.

First World Problems

writer_dark_one
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.
