I’m starting to get a lot of questions in the inbox. I’m happy to answer all emails, but this will be a really busy week behind the scenes, so I figured I’d save people the hassle of waiting for response…

Q. When is book 5 coming out?

A. It’s scheduled for July. Right now, I can’t be any more specific on an actual date because it all depends on how quickly we can finalize editing, art and other packaging issues.

Q. On the Fantasy Heights page, it says Book 5’s title and cover aren’t finalized. What does that mean?

A. It means the title and art will change before release. Though we feel Exposed fits the episode’s theme really well, it doesn’t fit with the overall titling scheme. Expect a three-word, Amanda-centric title upgrade. I’ll make sure to post the final decision well in advance of release.

Q. I’m a Nook reader and hate having to wait for the books to show up on B&N’s bookstore. Is there any way we can get the new title earlier this time?

A. Yes. We’ll be handling the release process very differently from now on. Nookers will not have to wait any longer than Kindlers. New releases will, of course, show up on Smashwords a couple days before B&N or Amazon; we plan to sandbag the release date a bit to ensure that when we say the book is out, it’ll actually be available to as many readers as possible.

Sony is an ongoing problem that, at this point, we are unable to solve without divine intervention. To those readers, I am so, so sorry. The best I can do is suggest Calibre.

Q. Will Thomas’s secret be revealed in Book 5?

A. Yes.

Q. Will the mystery client be unmasked in Book 5?

A. Pardon? I didn’t understand the question.

Q. Will the third owner be revealed in Book 5?

A. You really shouldn’t mumble, because I can’t understand a word you’re saying.

Q. Will there ever be a HEA?

A. That depends on one’s definition of HEA. I don’t mean to be coy with that answer, but given what’s coming in subsequent episodes, “happy” could mean a lot of different things.

Q. What’s this The Nights of Yes book cover I found in your Photobucket? That’s not book 5, is it?

A. Nope.

This is the first standalone erotic romance. It is not related to the FH series, and though the title is pretty much carved in stone, the art is only a draft. (Obviously; can still see the stock watermark —  I do love the image, though, and it will likely be the one we go with, even if color, fonts and composition change).

Here is where I admit that TNOY was supposed to be released at the end of April but I was so late in finishing and so dissatisfied with the result that the project is on hold until we can figure out how to fix the parts that suck.

Q. How many Fantasy Heights episodes will there be?

A. I honestly don’t know. First we were scripted to three, and that got extended to six, which opened up into nine scripted episodes. Due to the fact this series is actually two series grafted into one, the potential exists for many, many more. So I suppose it depends on when it starts to feel stale.

Someday, I will explain more about the two grafted series, but today is not that day due to MAJOR SPOILER potential.

Q. Will you ever bundle a bunch of episodes into one volume like you did with the first two episodes?

A. Never say never, but bundling poses a pricing dilemma. As many of you know, some retailers insist on a $.99 ending on price. If we bundle, say, the first five episodes into one volume, the price ought to be $3.96, which shuts us out of Apple et al. If I raise the price to $3.99, new readers are penalized. If I drop the price to $2.99, my loyal readers are getting screwed, and not in a fun way, and that I won’t have.

Thus my hesitation to bundle, even though I know it’d be more convenient.

Q. Do you need beta readers?

A. Yes, I will eventually be looking to take on one more beta who is a) not a writer, b) not an editor, and c) not a paid reviewer. I will keep you posted when I am feeling brave enough to let someone new tear off my bandages.


That’s it for today. If you have any other questions, feel free to email and I’ll do my best to get back to you as soon as I can drag my head out of story world.

  1. I just wanted to say I am a huge fan. I’ve read a lot of erotica and most of it made me yawn, made me wince, or made me set it aside as not worth reading. You write erotica beautifully- I wonderful storyline with incredible sex scenes that keep the reader’s pulse pounding, and I finished each of the first 4 stories with a sigh of regret. You also helped me find the courage to branch out and start writing erotica-although under the pen name Kendra Glenn so I didn’t confuse those who read my paranormal works. I discovered it was possible to write erotica in a meaningful way, not trashy and disgusting. I an eager for more, and the 5 star reviews will keep coming your way- your work deserves it. Kudos!

    1. You know what? This has to be my favorite comment ever. Thank you, welcome aboard, and I look forward to seeing what you can do.
