Self-Publishing Author Collaborations — The New Business Model?

Change isn’t necessarily a bad or good thing, it just is. Expect it, deal with it, make decisions, set goals, take action and move on.

With the rapid changes in the publishing and digital world, it’s hard to anticipate the next change, other than it will happen. It’s also difficult to make a five year plan when publishing can shift and reorganize from month to month. I think my five year plan has changed four times this year and I’m reworking it yet again.

I always say to new writers, and established writers, think positive. I still believe that, but expect the rug to be yanked out from underneath you from time to time, because it will. One thing I know is I have to be flexible, anticipate change and always, always look for opportunities. When they arrive, take the risk and take action. More on what I did this year concerning that.

Author Collaborative Groups or Mastermind Groups-Mini Publishing Companies

Authors with smart business sense, who’ve decided to ride out the storm of change and make a career of writing, have created new innovative ways to run their writing business. One way is to join forces with other writers into collaborative groups. They’re Mastermind groups of authors working together on a common goal(s): Promote each other’s books, plan writing projects, box sets, series/serials, brainstorm individual projects, do online workshops or workshops at conferences, podcasts, group blogs, newsletters, reader Facebook pages, Facebook parties.

Many in these groups bring special skills: Technical. They can format and upload to online retailers. Artistic and Cover Design. Make professional book covers. Editing/copyediting/proofreading/beta reading. Social networking savviness. Organizational skills. Legal expertise. Marketing knowledge. Project development. Basically a mini publishing company. If the group is lacking in any of these areas, like editing or cover design, they can outsource.

This isn’t a NEW thing really. There are a number of author groups out there now who are successfully doing this.

The group I’m in is called Sexy Scribbles

Opportunities and Risks. So what did I do this year that I’d consider a risk? I wrote a book different than what I’ve been writing, really pushing the envelope, knowing the topic would probably annoy a few readers and would probably get panned. Why did I write it? It was a story that had to be told, something from my gut. I didn’t hold back while writing it. I thought it might never get published, but I had to write it. Then I edited/revised it and it sat for months. I didn’t know if I should submit it to agents/editors. I thought it might be too controversial. I did send it to a couple agents as a test and promptly got rejected without much feedback.
I pitched RED TAPE to a NY editor and she did like the idea, compared the storyline to Tiffany Reisz. I submitted the three chapter proposal and waited—months. I’ve been doing the same pitch-request-submit-wait-and-hope-nice rejection for years. Although I’ve had a few ‘almosts’ and kind rejections in the past, I was anticipating the ‘R’ as the months dragged on. Then a friend and CP contacted me while I was at a conference and she frantically asked, “There’s one slot left for a 16-book box set I’m doing. We need a completed erotic book. Do you have one and are you interested?”
I could continue to wait and hope on that NY submission or go in on the box set. I pulled my submission and went in on the box set—RED TAPE became my first self-publishing endeavor. It paid off. We hit #6 on the New York Times and #13 on the USA Today bestseller lists.
While working on the next book in the RED TAPE –FLC series, I’m also working on a joint non-fiction project within the Sexy Scribbles group and planning a box set that I’ll be spearheading for 2015.

Aaron's Jewel, #BDSM #EroticRomance Intensely Hot and Sexy

Aaron's Jewel -- Cris Anson

Please welcome author Cris Anson to The Lusty View. I can't wait to read Cris Anson's newest release. I know the amount of 'research' and heart that goes into Cris' books. She's an amazing writer and has an wonderful way with words. If you haven't read her books, you really need to pick one up. You will not be disappointed. Aaron's Jewel is a great one to try.

Aaron's Jewel by Cris Anson
Available at Ellora's Cave on Sept. 26 and soon at other retailers. 

Amazon    BN    

BLURB: Finding a position as corporate legal counsel in one’s middle-50s after being downsized sucks, so Aaron haunts his local dungeon to soothe his frustration. Feeling squeezed by work and family obligations, ghost writer Julia turns up at the same dungeon to do “research” for her current assignment.
The moment they meet, the dominant in Aaron recognizes the submissive in Julia.
He peels away the layers of her shyness along with her clothes. He gets her—his Jewel—naked and writhing against the cross and over the spanking bench. And she revels in his dominance and tutelage, discovering her wanton self whether tied to a bed in private or blindfolded and the target of many hands in public.
But real life isn’t all adult fun and games. Not when grown children, parents, careers and aging bodies conspire to challenge their burgeoning relationship.

Excerpt from AARON’S JEWEL
By Cris Anson ©2014

Withdrawing her hand, she bit the inside of her cheek, debating whether to tell him. But he’d opened up to her, she could do no less. “Mine left me for a Hooters waitress. My daughters now have a half-brother who’s more like a son to them. We’re all civil, most of the time.”

“A Hooters waitress.” Aaron gave her a stare with those black-brown eyes that made a tantalizing shiver dance down her spine. “He must be a real stupid son of a bitch.”

Her mouth curved upward. “How nice of you to say that.”

“Julia, I mean it. You really are a jewel. Classy, intelligent, easy to talk to, very attractive and, if I may be a little bit of a macho chauvinist pig, you have a killer body.”

Speechless. What should she say to that? She knew she’d added more than a few pounds since her twenties, knew that the evidence of child-bearing showed in her sagging breasts, her pooch of a belly with its stretch marks, but she wasn’t about to demur—he’d likely feel she was fishing for more compliments.

He leaned forward across the booth, the last few pieces of their tomato pie forgotten. “Tell me what you like about BDSM.”

She blinked. Wow, what a change of subject. It made her heart rate speed up.

“You don’t need to be afraid of me, Jewel. I’ll give you the names of a dozen people who are members of North City Power Exchange and ask you to check me out. You’ll find I’m a serious practitioner who believes in safe, sane and consensual. I’m clean, I get tested every year. Not that I ever play with questionable partners; I do it to put my partners’ minds to rest. I would like to learn all about you, what you want, how you react. I want to see you naked, want to feel my hands on your skin. I want to hear your moans, I want to watch your face when I make you come.”

She still couldn’t speak. Nor could she deny the effect his words had on her psyche.

“Julia. I’ll repeat this only once. Tell me what you like about BDSM.”

The tone of his voice, not loud but forceful nonetheless, broke her mental logjam. That was a Dominant talking. Taking a deep breath, she thought, Sink-or-swim time.

“I like the idea of not being in charge, of forced seduction, of being taken and done to while I’m helpless to fight back. But in my fantasies everyone does what I want without me telling them, and everything is for my pleasure and mine alone. Even the blowjobs where I’m held down and not in charge, they’re at my pace, even though it seems like they’re directing the scene. The tying up, the flogging, the double penetration or whatever configurations I’ve encountered in my reading, the teasing, the withholding of orgasm, they’d be done to me without my volition but with me and my pleasure as everyone’s focus.”

She was surprised at how easily the words came out of her mouth, yet she was more than a little skeptical that she’d ever encounter just such a scenario. “But I know that’s an impossibility because no one can read someone else’s mind. And no one is that altruistic to focus strictly on my pleasure.”

“Jewel, you’d be surprised at how much of forced seduction is exactly what you just posited. When partners are attuned to each other, when they know each other’s darkest desires, when they trust each other implicitly, they will be able to read inarticulate sounds and involuntary body language, pick up on nuances, spoken or unspoken. Your dream can come true.

“And, to address the last part,” he continued, his voice lowering to a purr, “it’s not altruism, but you’d also be surprised at how much pleasure the giver receives when perpetrating these deeds. The feedback we get, watching how we make someone come, is a high in itself.”

Falling, she was falling into his eyes, those Svengali black-brown eyes that saw deep inside her now she’d opened the door to her soul. She could almost believe him, believe that he could touch every hidden part of her.

And she was surprised to realize that she wanted him to do just that, touch her, take her, fulfill her. This would be no rebound affair. She’d been divorced too long for that, had become resigned to the fact that she was probably over the hill as far as the dating pool went. But this man, this dominant man with gray-streaked hair and lived-in face, who like her had adult children with problems, might just be the answer to her fantasies. She needed to discover for herself.

“Show me,” she whispered.

Bio of Cris Anson

Cris Anson writes erotic romance because she firmly believes that life doesn't stop at the bedroom door. She also feels you're never too old to give or receive love; many of her stories have older heroines who dazzle younger men. For the past few years she’s been immersing herself in research into BDSM. Her newer works delve deeply into the lifestyle. Aaron’s Jewel is her 15th release for Ellora’s Cave.

WICKED TAKEOVER by Tina Donahue, New HOT Erotic Romance.

WICKED TAKEOVER,  Tina Donahue's latest HOT release from Ellora's Cave

Buy Links:



Check out the CONTEST at the end of this post!!!

She’s just inherited a tattoo parlor…and the hunk who comes with it.

Lauren’s in a helluva mess. Not only has she lost her corporate job, her long-absent father just left her a struggling tattoo parlor along with the virile dude who runs it. Dante’s sinfully hot with a killer smile and inked biceps. Lauren’s full-figured, sorta pretty and wanting him badly. Dream on. She’s here to sell the place as quickly as possible for some much-needed cash.
Dante sees the heat in Lauren’s eyes despite her conservative appearance. He recognizes the dynamite woman she could be if she’d just loosen up and have some wicked fun. Dominance and submission. Making love in a public place. Having her lush body always accessible to and ready for his.

Carnal games that seduce them until lust turns to surprising need and friendship to something deeper that might just change their futures.

Excerpt #1:

At a sound from behind, she turned. A guy came down the hall, his attention on the clipboard he held.
Lauren’s heart stalled then raced.
She guessed him to be in his early thirties, a mountain of a man, possibly six-three, not a trace of fat on his hard body, just smooth bronze skin and slabs of muscles. Lord, lord, lord. He wore faded jeans and a gray sleeveless tee. His bulging biceps sported tats. The one on his right arm was an armband of what appeared to be thorns. The design on his left arm had a tribal look about it, possibly Celtic, a series of thick black swirls that intertwined.
Lauren pressed her toes into her heels to keep from swaying or moving closer.
His hair was shoulder length, like a pirate’s, a dark brown color, thick and silky that encouraged a woman to run her fingers through it to ease those strands away from his gorgeous face. Masculine. Decidedly Latin. Virile to the extreme. Even though it was barely two o’clock, he already had five o’clock shadow and more testosterone pumping through him than the law should have allowed.
She imagined him nude. Hell, she imagined both of them naked, his bristly cheeks tickling the insides of her thighs, his tongue lapping her cleft, settling on her clit but not rushing her climax. No damn way. Lauren figured a guy who looked as great as he did wouldn’t let her come quickly. He’d make her wait for pleasure. Once she was blubbering in delight, he’d bend her over the front counter and warn her to behave, which meant she couldn’t moan too loudly as he spanked her. Her cries of delight would come later when he plunged his meaty cock into her juicy cunt, taking what he wanted, because that’s the kind of man he was.
Uninhibited. Alpha to the core.
Lauren whimpered.
Despite the strains of Spanish guitars flowing from the sound system, he’d obviously heard the noise she’d made. Halting suddenly, he lifted his face, his dark brown eyes meeting hers. He smiled easily, confidently.
Her bones went soft.
“Hey,” he said.
Lauren’s belly fluttered at his deep, rich baritone.
Noting her office wear, he put the clipboard on the front counter and moved closer, his stride smooth and assured. His fragrance wafted toward her. Something clean and citrusy that reminded Lauren of summer days, an ocean breeze, sun baking naked skin.
She locked her knees to keep her balance. Her attention inched from his impressive Adam’s apple to his luscious mouth, his full, kissable lips.
“Did you lose your way?” he asked.
With him, any woman would. Not only was he beautiful, intelligence burned in his eyes and reflected in his surprisingly educated speech. “I’m sorry, what?”
He regarded her suit and heels. “Are you looking for another shop?”
Surprise registered on his face. “You’re here for a tat?”
Lauren stared at the ones on his biceps, unable to help herself. Damn, they were hot. “Not exactly.”
He nodded. The ends of his hair swayed over his broad shoulders. Mesmerized, Lauren watched.
“A piercing?” he asked.
“Are you here for a piercing?” He gestured to another wall filled with pictures. The muscles in his upper arm flexed.
Lauren bit back a sound of approval at that and the silky dark hair in his pit. She pictured her face pressed to it as she smelled his wonderful, male scent.
“You can see what we offer in those photos,” he said. “We also have binders of what we’ve done for past clients to give you an idea of what you might like.”
Lauren nodded absently, wondering if he was dating the young woman who’d left here earlier. If not, the spring in her step was probably from him inking a hidden part of her. “Do people really get their tongues tattooed?”
He grinned, showing perfect teeth. “You bet.”
He shrugged good-naturedly. “Why not?”
Clearly, he wasn’t uptight as she’d always been. How Lauren envied that. “Have you?”
“Have I what?”
“Had your tongue tattooed? Or are the ones on your arms all that you have?”
His smile broadened. He spoke conspiratorially. “I have another, though not on my tongue.”
Uh-huh. Lauren wondered if he’d inked his balls and cock, hoping he hadn’t. His equipment had to be as awesome as the rest of him. No way could anyone improve on nature’s perfection.
She sighed.
He regarded her thoughtfully, really taking in her short blonde hair, clothes and finally her features, including the small mole near the side of her mouth. There, he lingered, as though he liked the beauty mark.
Are you nuts? A guy like him? Get real.
He continued to study her mouth.
A wave of desire and embarrassment rushed through Lauren so quickly, her throat and cheeks got hot.
He smiled softly this time, as though he felt bad for making her uncomfortable. Lightly touching her arm, he murmured, “Let me get those binders so you can look through them.”
“No, don’t. Please. That’s not why I’m here.”
His dark eyebrows lifted a bit. “You’re selling something?” His attention went to her purse as though her product line was in there.
“Uh no. I’m here to take over.”
“Take over?”
He looked lost. “As in what?”

“This place.” At his continuing confusion, she blurted, “I own this place and everything in it, including you.”

#SPeekSunday -9/14/14- #NightlordLover – Under his spell? #Vampire

Sneak Peek from Nightlord Lover by Kathy Kulig
Genre: Vampire erotic romance

18 y/o and older PLEASE!

The antique streetlights illuminated her bedroom with a faint glow, but not enough to see his face. Garrick’s weight pressed her down onto her bed. When had she let him into her apartment and bedroom? Groggy from sleep, she explained away the confusion. Maybe he was worried about her, or he couldn’t resist their attraction either.

Desire and strong sexual need blocked out logic and any warnings attempting to surface in her mind. Sighing in pleasure, she surrendered to her needs. Enjoy the moment. When was the last time she felt this hot for a guy or someone wanted her this badly?
She could feel he was naked, feel his hard cock against her thigh. Moisture pooled between her legs. If he didn’t give her some attention there soon she’d go mad for sure.

Larissa arched into the hands massaging her breasts. “Yes, that’s so good.” She writhed as his mouth sucked her nipples, one at a time. His teeth captured the tender flesh while his tongue teased and rolled over the tip. It was so good, how could she resist? She knew she’d wanted him the first time she saw him. And he wanted her too. Two adults hot for each other. What could be wrong with that?

“More, Garrick.” She was raw now, almost painful from his rough attentions, but she didn’t want him to stop. Her clit throbbed and she ached for him to move lower but wouldn’t ask him yet. They were new lovers, just exploring and learning about each other. She wanted this to last.

“Soon you’ll be mine,” he murmured against her breast then moved lower.
