Unexpected Hurtles for the Novice Author

Unexpected Hurdles for the Novice Author

Hi, I’m Spencer Dryden, author of “Tricks of the Trade” a new release from Fireborn Publishing.

Although this is my sixth stand alone publication, my first book, Bliss, was published only a little more than a year ago ( April 14th 2014) by Breathless Press, which unfortunately has recently closed it’s doors. More on this later. But for now I can use several of my books published by Breathless as demonstrations without being overly self-promotional as the books mentioned here are no longer available.

I came into fiction writing at the encouragement of a friend who has been successful as a novelist and a playwright (success defined as: he’s made a living wage at his craft). He gave me three rules I call Leicht’s Laws: 1) writing is, for you; 2) publishing is for others; 3) marketplace success is a convergence of highly unlikely events.

In a recent phone conversation, we both agreed that despite the ego boost and in his case the royalties, being a writer is a lot more fun than being an author. Living under the second law has had some unexpected surprises. I thought I’d deal with one for any aspiring writer who may read this post. Its about titles.

My works often have a title before I begin serious writing. A title makes the project ‘real’ in my mind. I think it’s vitally important, at least it is for me, that a story be ‘real’ as early as possible. I try to envision a finished product, even if I don’t have a complete story line. Nothing does that better for me than a title. The reason is, I know I’m going to get stuck at some point. Giving a manuscript a name is a reminder to keep plowing ahead. My mentor also said, “writers, write, novelists finish.”

bliss

My first stand alone work, Bliss is a perfect example of a poorly chosen title. Although there are many layers of meaning in the title, it was the title for a much different work when I sat down to compose. Along the way it morphed into a woman’s struggle with sexual shame. She and her husband live in the mythical town of Bliss, New Hampshire which is beginning to turn into a feminist Stepford for her. Her husband has lost sexual interest in her, she’s being tormented by a born again pastor at their church and she is still reeling from a sexual assault as a child.

I intended the original story to be comedic in that it would pit my heroine, the corporate attorney for the town’s biggest employer, Bliss Industries, a sex toy manufacturer, against a local pastor on a PR fueled purity kick who is trying to get the business closed.

As I started writing the story, maybe as part of the magic or writing, the story emerged with my heroine as a CPA who ends up battling with the mega church pastor over shady finances she uncovers when doing an audit. I never changed the name. I should have, not only was it confusing, worse, there are hundreds of books with the title Bliss.

In case you live under a rock, when a buyer does a title search, Amazon presents books with identical titles in rank order. If you try to find Bliss with a title inquiry, it is invisible. I liked the subtleties of the title but they would only be apparent to someone who has READ the book. The cover is evocative of the multiple meanings—again I patted myself on the back for my cleverness—but if people don’t see the book what the hell is the point?

Test your title, tweak it a little to reduce being lost in the clutter. Eventually you have to enter the Amazon jungle (pun intended) . Under the third law, marketing success is out of your control but you have a better chance if your book stands out from the crowd. That begins with a title.

I was better at choosing a title for my second story, Love Above See Level. There is only one book with this title on Amazon. Still, I got in a fun play on words. It is a short story about a surfer/beach bum who is smitten by a woman who is six-feet seven inches tall. Unfortunately by the time you read this, the book will no longer be available. I am hoping to find another home for it. It’s a fun little story with a of a kind title.

Next, I wrote a Holiday theme story for an annual Breathless Press collection, Then, One Frozen Christmas Eve. which played off the lyrics to the famous Christmas tune, also one of a kind on Amazon in its brief life.

Another issue with titles is the pernicious Amazon censorship spasms. Amazon has many masters, two of which are in constant competition, the tremendous volume of business generated by erotic literature vs the puritanical nabobs who want Amazon to censor, destroy, and burn anything hinting of pornography. Fifty Shades of Grey owes some of it’s success to concealing its identity with both cover art and title.

From anecdotal evidence, it appears Amazon is more harsh with indie authors than with publishers. Nevertheless, it’s best to avoid obvious pornographic content in your title. The title of my last book published by Breathless was The Substitute. It’s a story about a union journeyman plumber who risks his career by substituting for his buddy who owns a non-union plumbing shop. The fun starts when the substitute, “Gary”, discovers at his first call that the client is expecting sex and not plumbing services. The original title was The Accidental Gigolo, which I felt was descriptive but also indicative of my light hearted treatment of the subject. But I went with the less innocuous, The Substitute, out of concern for Amazon’s fickle censorship policies. There are lots of books called by that title. In this case hiding was an acceptable behavior.

Give you title a test for visibility and offensiveability (my addition to the English language) before setting it in stone.

Thanks for spending some time with me today. I welcome you questions and comments.

Hand Job by Spencer Dryden

Hand job

Hand Job

Genre: M/F, Contemporary Erotica

Synopsis:

Jack Reed is a thirty-something handyman and aspiring erotic fiction writer with fantasies about Jodie, a barista at the coffee shop where he writes every day.

His dreams begin to materialize when Jodie offers him a quick palm reading, hinting at sex with her. She invites Jack to her boutique for a more complete session. Her reading predicts Jack’s artisan hands will be pleasing to a woman. Their session interrupted, she invites him to her house that evening for further revelation.

Uncertain of Jodie’s intentions, but drawn by her allure, Jack goes to her house expecting additional interpretation in exchange for handyman work. What he receives is far more than he bargained for.

goodreads-badge-add-plus-fad3b68d35050280ea55d50f17c654b5

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Hand Job was fast paced and straight to the steamy point. My husband had walked by my computer and stated ‘Oh My’. I said ‘what?’ Then he repeated the title to me. I chuckled and said she does palm readings get your mind out off the gutter, but boy that us where my mind should have been.

For it to be such a short story it packs a punch of an erotica author getting his palm read by a barista, but she has something else in mind, that couldn’t stop Jack from writing about it in his next book and going back for me.

Can’t wait to read more from this author.

Blog Tour: The New Haven Series Season Two by Nicholas Bella

11073251_229939340510076_5337820874044027085_n

New Haven Series
House of Théoden Season Two

Genre: M/M, Paranormal, Dark

10928048_203655426471801_576063513_n

Commanded (Book #1)

Synopsis:

Théoden: On the evening of branding my new son, Noel, my King has called a special meeting of his Court. I can’t possibly guess what this meeting is about, as everything within his kingdom is running perfectly. I do know one thing, Ara loves to entertain and be entertained, so at least that’s something to look forward to. What I’m not looking forward to is having to see Nolan, Lord of District Four. We really don’t get along. Well, as for my children, when the Master is away, the boys will play. In fact, I insist on it. Noel: I’ve just received my official brand, the insignia of the House of Théoden. Along with the brand comes a load of responsibilities I am to adhere to. Apparently, my new life involves being an enforcer.

I’m to be trained by Marco, my eldest and most sadistic brother. I’m not looking forward to that, not one bit. At least tonight, I’ll get a reprieve. For tonight, we celebrate as only the House of Théoden can.

Warning: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes. The novelettes in this serial will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance. There are approximately 19,100 words in this novelette.

book 2

Ascension (Book #2)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Tonight, I have to make one of the hardest decisions of my life. I have to choose which two on my children to send off with my Sire, my King, Ara. As you know, I don’t like to share what belongs to me, but I can’t deny my King what he’s commanded of me. The highlight of my evening, however, will be my ascension to Prince of the City. I’m expected to announce my own decree at tonight’s ceremony and I can’t wait. The citizen of the Kingdom of Ara WILL respect my rule… or else.

Noel: I got a break last night when Théoden allowed his sons some free time. But Tonight is going to be no walk in the park for me. Marco is all business and he doesn’t take his job of training me lightly. I’m still trying to figure out what I can and can’t do around him, the cruel, sadistic bastard is so unpredictable. One thing is for certain, I want to learn what it means to be a vampire. I don’t want to be ruled by my nature… I want to control it.

My Review: 3.5/5 Stars

This go round I knew what to expect from Nicholas. I can’t say that I was disappointed or anything. He was down and dirty like in Season One. I liked that he had Théoden point of view.

Noel is actually working out in Théoden house and I can’t say that, that surprised me, though I love that he didn’t loose the smartassness about himself.

Things are changing for Théoden and they are for the better. He is now the Prince of the City because seriously who wouldn’t want that. His king is trying to take over more territory.

My biggest turn off was shockingly not the insane amount of sex and cum or the violence. It was Marco. He worked my nerves in Season One but it wasn’t so bad. This go round, I was to the point if I had a stack, I would have stacked his ass in the heart, numerous times. I get he needed to be a bad ass, but damn.

All in all, I really enjoyed it. Can’t wait to read more, though I think Mr. Bella is the only author I might be able read with this much darkness in it. My heart just can’t take it and I’m already invested in the series to the point where I really want to know what is gong to happen next.

book 3

Negotiations (Book #3)

Synopsis:

Theoden: I am now the official Prince of the City. The reins have been handed over and I am now fully in control. My first order of business is to fortify the defenses of my territory. Thanks to my King, Ara’s decree, my plate is exceptionally full. I have to solidify an alliance with Celestial Dragon King, Evander. I also have to make a new alliance with Wolf Alpha, Deacon. That meeting can either end bloody or amicable. Wolves are a stubborn sort and savage in their quest for more power. This night should prove to be very interesting.

Noel: Marco doesn’t play, and he’s going to make me regret my foolish decision. I should have listened to Derek. I know not to cross the mean bastard now. This night has been so busy: Theoden’s ascension, my training, what happened at the bar, and on top of that, I still have a punishment looming over me. I haven’t even begun to search for a human to sire. Hell, I don’t even know how? Do I just grab some unlucky bastard off the streets and say, “hey, I’m your new vampire daddy!” This is so messed up, I don’t even want to sire anyone, but I have no choice. Also, because I’m Theoden’s son, that makes me a General, which I believe is a higher rank than Enforcer. What that means, exactly, I’m not sure… but I know I’ll find out sooner or later.

book 4

Hunted (Book #4)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Far be it from me to refuse an invitation from the Celestial Dragon King, Evander. Besides, what’s the point of living forever if you can’t have fun? A little distraction would serve me well. I still had so much to do this night. Children to Sire, a rebel hybrid to hunt down and a test to conduct with Noel that would surely elevate his status in my eyes. That is, if he passed. Apart from that, there was this matter of hunting Dante. Sure, I enlisted the assistance of wolf Alpha, Deacon, but I didn’t want to leave the hunt of Dante solely up to him and his pack, especially with the price being so high. I do know one thing, Dante better be worth it.

Noel: My training with Marco is advancing and the more I learn about what I am, the more I discover who I am. Maybe Théoden had a point when he told me that being a vampire is what I wanted. I don’t know. I do know that I find myself enjoying the powers and strength I possess. He really is making me into the vampire he wants me to be. I realize that even more now as I try to figure out who I should sire and why. This person will be my child, an extension of me. How do I want to be represented?

Coming Soon:

CS

Evolution (Book #5)

Synopsis:

Théoden: Dante is within my grasp. I’m actually very excited to meet my future son. He’s got wolf’s blood flowing within his veins, so I know he’ll be the stubborn sort, but I do like a challenge. As for Deacon, the wolf Alpha has surprised me. I hadn’t expected him to locate Dante so quickly. He’s  a cunning one I’m going to have to keep my eye on. His ambition is both admirable and dangerous. As for my King’s decree, things are moving along smoothly. I have two more children to sire and then I would have fulfilled my duty. The sooner I’m done with that, the quicker I can get to training my new child. I’m so looking forward to breaking him in.

Noel: As for my obligation to the King, I met his expectations. I’ve sired my first son and it’s been one hell of an experience. I thought I would feel overwhelmed, but Romeo is taking to this life so naturally. I guess you could say that I chose wisely.  I’m also getting the hang of being in control and being his Father. No doubt, Marco’s training is seeing me through a lot of transition.  Now, I have to hold up my part in the bargain Théoden made with Deacon. Can’t say I’m happy about being used as a bargaining chip, but it’s out of my hands. As for my training with Marco, he’s promised to put me through the ringer physically. I’m ready to learn more and grow stronger.

About me? Hmmm, I’m just a person with a wild imagination and a love for words who was sitting around the house one day and said, “Why hasn’t anyone written a book like this before?”. As with every storyteller, I wanted to share mine with the world. I like my erotica dark, gritty, sexy… and even a little raunchy. I’m not afraid to go there and I hope you aren’t afraid to go there with me. When I’m not writing, I love watching movies and TV shows, clubbing, biking, and hanging out with family and friends. I love life.

Excerpt:

I put on a red mini skirt with a black top which flattered me in all the right places and paired the clothing with knee-length black leather boots. The weather here had been one of the hardest things to adjust to. December brought cold weather and my thin jacket clearly didn’t do enough to keep me warm anymore. With my next paycheck, a winter jacket was going to be a priority. If only I made more money, it would make my life a lot easier. Christmas was coming and I was going to stay at the dorm alone, with no money available to afford the trip home. It sucked, my parents were angry at first when I told them I wouldn’t be coming, but they’d eventually come to terms with my decision.

“Sugar!” Zach entered my room, he stared at me, practically drooling.

“Hey lucky.” I blushed. “I’m ready.”

He stepped closer, his blue eyes filling with desire.

“I’ve change my mind. What about staying here for the night?”

I knew what he was suggesting, but there was no way I would cancel my night out. It represented my only Christmas celebration. The only fun I expected to have until the beginning of January when he would return to the residence. “I want what you want, lucky, but we have to go out. I want to have some fun. A crazy fun-filled night is ahead of us.”

He took me prisoner in his arms and his lips found mine. God! Tingles overwhelmed my body. I had to stop him, now, while I could still think.

“Zach, stop, not now, okay?” He looked down at me, lust plastering his eyes. “I feel it too. Whatever this is that we have… but Krystal is waiting, and I really need a drink.” Lame excuses, Iris.

“Later, then.” He kissed me one last time, making me regret stopping him in the first place. All part of a game I was meant to lose.

Krystal waited at the end of the hall, all dolled up and looking sexy. She had no partner for tonight. She was on her own, living the good life, she said.

“If the party sucks, I know a place where we could have a good time.” Krystal had some connections here in New York. Her cousin was into the nightlife scene in a big way and always kept Krystal on speed dial if an opportunity presented itself.

“Will your cousin be there?” Zach asked, inevitably, because he liked her. At the time, he hadn’t specified how much he liked her, but I knew he thought she was hot.

I rolled my eyes at him. “I’m hungry, I forgot to grab something to eat before leaving. I was distracted.”

“Do you want to stop by work before we go out, then we can use our discount,” Krystal proposed, since we were both short on money.

“Okay, let’s go.” I didn’t think Zach’s love of fast food would ever die. Walking with heels on a cold night, and with a short skirt, soon proved to be a bad idea. I missed both my sneakers and my skateboard.

The warmth of the restaurant was welcome and the smell had me convinced I was starving. My coworkers eyed Krystal and I as if we had just arrived from a different planet. “Hey guys.” Krys broke the silence. “We’ll have three number ones with Diet Coke.” With our discount, it came down to almost nothing cost wise.

We sat at a table by the front window and ate in silence. My brain couldn’t process anything other than eating. I was famished and half way through my meal when Zach spoke. “Come on, girls. I don’t want to get there after everyone is already wasted.” I took a last sip of my Diet Coke before throwing it into the garbage disposal. With a full stomach, I was ready to party the night away. We entered the house where the party was taking place. There was people everywhere. The house was crowded to the point that I feared for our safety. What if something happened?

Zach grabbed three beers from the counter and offered us one. We stood face-to-face unable to move in the sea of people. The night wasn’t turning out as I had imagined. No dance area, no place to sit, just a big mass of people drinking and sweating. After five minutes, I wanted to leave. The parties in Florida were a lot more fun to be honest, and I’d expected the opposite.

“What about we finish our beer and get the hell out of here?” Zach proposed.

“Good idea. I got our names on the guest list for the grand opening of the Whiskey Bar & Lounge at the Health and Fitness Tower.”

“Is there a place to dance?” I asked.

“Probably.” Krystal didn’t seem certain but I was willing to take the risk. It couldn’t be as bad as this party.

“I heard this place is huge, different sections and all.”

I drank the remainder of my beer and hurried outside, needing some fresh air. The brisk wind hit me head on. God, how I missed home and the warm weather.

We got into a taxi, warming up before attending what seemed like the ultimate event. A valet was waiting for the cars as they arrived. Although we had arrived in a taxi, the valet opened the door for us and let us out taking Krystal’s and then my hand to steady us as we stepped out. We were escorted by a tall man at the entrance and Krys was telling him about the invitation we’d received. He confirmed all three of us were on the guest list. Our jackets were taken to the cloak room and we were offered a small glass of whiskey. It tasted like no other whiskey I had ever tried before. So much flavour and I felt the warm liquid trickle all the way to my stomach. If I could afford it, I would have bought a second one, but I doubted I could afford the price.

“Now, we’re talking.” Zach licked his lips, confirming he loved it, too. “I think I’m going to like this place. It’s cozy, and it has class.” He glanced around the bar, looking satisfied with our decision to come.

“Only you could afford it.” I chuckled. “Working in a fast food restaurant doesn’t exactly give us that possibility.”

Zach had no issues, financially. His father was one of the busiest real estate agents in New Jersey. Once every two or three months, Zach had to give his father a hand with all the paperwork, but otherwise, he didn’t need to work to afford the dorm experience. It never made sense to me, why he was living in the dorms if he could stay in the family residence. He said when I questioned him that he didn’t like to live alone.

“Iris, isn’t it?” A voice spoke from behind me. It didn’t sound familiar. Before spinning around, I noticed Krystal’s jaw dropping to the floor and her eyes were round like a couple of lollipops.

Oh my God. It’s him. The guy who flirted with me, at work. “Hi.” I barely manage to get a word out, I’m so stunned.

“Here, I got you another one of those.” He smiled and his charm hits me, making every inch of my skin shiver. I took the glass of whiskey from his outstretched hand and when our fingers touched, something strange happened. My eyes met his and… and… what was that? Something happened in my chest, as if my heart had stopped beating for an instant.

“Thank you.” I flushed.

“You and your friends can have anything you want. It’s on me.”

I shook my head in disagreement. “I’m sorry, I’m afraid I can’t accept that.”

“You certainly will. Julia here, will make sure you guys have everything you need.”

His generosity left me speechless, but it wasn’t in my nature to accept anything that was handed to me with no good reason. Even more so, when it came from a complete stranger. “Why?”

He stared at me as if I was missing something important. “Because I own this place, and I want to make sure you’re having a good time.”

“Thank you.” Krystal accepted his offer for us and I mentally beheaded her.

He startled me when he placed his hand on my forearm, I was still deeply focused, hating on Krys. He clutched my forearm for a second with his fingers and then left. What was that all about? I didn’t know his name, or the reason behind his attention. I had only met him for the first time today and nothing had happened between us, other than him flirting a little. At the time, I thought it was innocent, but doubt was starting to make me rethink the whole situation.

“I think he wants something from you.” Zach said, sounding unhappy.

Krystal chuckled. “Clearly. His name is Calvin Banks. He owns this, the gym upstairs and most of the building, if not all. He is big into health, sport and everything in between. He used to play football professionally. I knew I’d seen him somewhere before.”

“Okay, so? Why are you telling me all this now?” I asked nervously.

“I hadn’t figured it out this afternoon. Now, though, he’s making it obvious – he wants you in his bed.”

Zach tensed beside me. “He’s too old for you.”

“I don’t think he’s even thirty yet,” Krys announced, giving Zach one more reason to worry.

I had no idea who he was. I only knew his name because Krys had told me. He didn’t even have the decency to properly introduce himself, when he decided to offer me a drink. Calvin obviously had money, that much was clear, but he didn’t interest me.

Yet.

Synopsis:

Sometimes life presents us with inexorable pain and formidable choices. Nevaeh Hewett knows this struggle of duplicity well. Her mother was diagnosed with stage-three lung cancer during her sophomore year of high school. Without family to lean on during this difficult time, the world comes crashing down around her. Sometimes comfort comes from where you least expect it. In this instance, it comes in the form of Landon Blake—the school’s star quarterback. He becomes her rock as she deals with her mother’s sickness. Their love blossoms, until circumstances force Nevaeh to make a difficult decision. She chooses a path that is at odds with her morality, but is a path that is necessitous. She is forced to walk away from her one true love, thus getting reacquainted with the pain.

Two years later marks the chance for a new beginning— or so she thinks. After Nevaeh’s mother loses the battle to cancer, her best friend insists that she joins her at FSU. This is a chance to start a new chapter in life so she accepts. She isn’t ready for the introduction to her new roommate Thor. He is cocky, gorgeous, and taken by their other roommate Giselle. Unbeknownst to the others, Nevaeh and Thor share a secret. Sparks fly as these three embark into a love triangle like no other. When all of the secrets and lies are out in the open, which will be the object of his desire?

Excerpt:

I’m ready to pass out from bliss as I feel Leo shove his hot, wet tongue right into my hole. His tongue easily glides in and out. I can’t see, but these brothers’ faces must be really close to each other right now. That really turns me on.

What’s the story with these two? These brothers aren’t at all shy around each other. I don’t have a brother, but if I did, I don’t think I could do anything like this with him. Still, they’ve barely touched. I wonder if that’s because it’s too taboo or if it’s because they’ve fucked each other their entire lives and are now bored by it. I don’t know, but they sure have no problem fucking somebody else together and being really close during sex. If they aren’t going to do anything with each other, that leaves more attention for me.

I can’t tell which sensation feels better: the mouth on my cock, the tongue in my ass or the dick down my throat. It all feels so fantastic, I’m surprised I haven’t cum yet. Maybe all that wine is helping me hold back. Matteo feels like he may be close to exploding soon. I suck even harder, hoping to feel his cum fill my stomach. I’m eager to try his creamy Italian dressing. I figure a little ass play might send him over the top. I slowly work my finger into the older brother’s furry hole as we suck each other’s cocks.

“You are a naughty boy, aren’t you Giaco,” he says smiling, letting my cock slip out of his mouth. When I try to put a second finger in, Matteo groans hard and then pulls away before he can cum. He gets up off me and stands up. His huge cock looks like an overfilled red water balloon.

“You get me too close to finish,” he explains. “I don’t want to finish. I like you and my brother likes you.”

“I like you guys too,” I shoot back. The hard, wet cock bouncing on my stomach says it better than I do.

My Review: 4/5 Stars

Ok so I don’t even know how I am going to review this properly.

There is a lot of sex, I am talking about every chapter Jake is either having sex or he is thinking something sexual, or he is jerking off. I went into this book with completely different expectations. Sure I knew it would be a huge amount of sex, but hot damn. Ok enough about sex.

The underling storyline was actually good. You have Jake thinking he is going to school abroad, but what he really is doing is becoming a spy. To successfully complete his mission, he needs to blend in and boy does he do that, but when it’s time for him to catch the bad guy, the flipping twist that happened in this story threw me for a complete loop. I swear to beans I did not see that coming..

So if you like a story with sex galore and a good secondary story this book is for you.

I’m not really big on severe amounts of sex, but I actually want to know what will happen next with Jake.
