To Wattpad or Not to Wattpad


What a question! Last year my client Chloe King looked into writing on Wattpad. Finding that Erotic Stories were acceptable she went ahead with her plan.  Except it isn't as clear cut as that at all. Not even by a small bit. One story was reported and pulled down. No email to the author, no … Continue reading To Wattpad or Not to Wattpad

Sultry Sexcapades – Experimenting


My Erotic Author Client, Chloe King is going to be blogging her stories on her website. Wattpad recently removed two of her stories without warning or the chance to save the work to her computer. We aren’t impressed.

These are EROTIC so don’t read if it’s not your thing. It is about a married couple in their early 30’s exploring their sexuality.

Thanks

This short chapter was posted on here a few years ago. I have since got back to blogging due to Wattpad continually taking down my stories. It is annoying when they do this without telling you. This particular story has over 135K reads at the time of its demise.

After chatting with Claire, my publisher, it was decided to put them on here instead. Anyhow here is an updated version of Chapter One – Experimenting.

Experimenting

Cody had my naked body bent over the back of a chair, my hands gripping the seat. My ankles were tied to the chair legs with silk scarves. My butt wiggling in the air, his hand smoothing over my soft skin. I shivered, waiting for him to press closer. Instead, he slid his large calloused fingers between my crack, over my anus. I gasped when he added some scented oil, massaging it into my…

Why you should take signing and inscribing your books very seriously…


Food for thought…

Ramblings from a Writer's Mind

event_image_2073But first, here are a few bits of book lore authors may not know.

By tradition and convention, authors should always sign their books on the title page, the page which has the author’s name printed on it, generally under the printed title of the book or nearer the foot of the same page.

If the author wishes to add an inscription, a message along with their signature, it should also go on the title page if it is very short, about a word or four in length. Longer inscriptions should be written on the half-title page, the page preceding the title page, or on the front endpaper, sometimes referred to as the flyleaf, if of a serious length.

An old tradition has the author put a line through their own printed name when they sign their name on the title page.

There are, by historical anecdote, two views of…

Watch out for Ghostly Rites 2019…Coming your way in a few days 🙂

Wendy Steele

I love a short story anthology, don’t you? It’s like a box of assorted chocolates –  if you don’t look at the menu card, you can be surprised and delighted by what you find inside.

The Ghostly Writes Anthology 2019 by Plaisted Publishing House, will feature a host of fabulous authors, each sharing a very special ghost story with you.

This year, my story is called ‘Charlotte’s Ghost’. Here’s the blurb for your delectation and delight….

It’s the summer of 1850. Newly widowed Aunt Winifred and her daughters, move into the Johnson country house, threatening to ruin Charlotte’s happy life with her parents. When her loathsome, tale telling cousins insist on being included, Charlotte uses the opportunity to restore Lady Mary’s missing jewels and preserve the secret of her personal ghost forever.

The awesome Eve Merrick-Williams also has a story in this year’s anthology. ‘Perchance to Dream’

There’s ‘Primrose Point’…

Today, I welcome Karen Mossman onto my blog, to have a chat and find out more about her and her writing. We met on the Ghostly Writes Anthology group, so all I know is that she lives in North Wales!

1 How do you write? Is everything plotted, planned to perfection? Do you ever change tack as you go along or always stick to a pre-made plan?

I tend to get an idea, then play around with it in my head for a while, which could be weeks sometimes. Once I have a sense of it, I’ll start writing. Sometimes I just write scenes and then put them all together at the end. So definitely not planned to perfection!

2 Do you have a writing ritual? Meditation, certain cup for your…
