Choosing the Best Excerpt? As Easy As 4 Tips on Erotic Romance with an Edge!

Choosing the Best Excerpt? As Easy As 4 Tips on Erotic Romance with an Edge!
One of the hardest things to do when you’re beginning to promote a new book is choose the excerpts. Many authors just choose to post the first chapter of their new book, and hope that by the end of it, readers want to buy. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing an excerpt, and these things will either make or break you when it comes to getting readers to buy your book.
Using PG and erotic excerpts from my own books and series, I’ll give you the top four tips for choosing the best excerpt that will make readers want to buy your book:
Stat from the very beginning!
Choosing a great excerpt means you have to have written a great book. If your book is not your best effort, then your excerpts are going to be so, and no amount of trying to choose a great excerpt is going to help.
My best book so far is Bondage Slave For Hire, so here’s an awesome excerpt of the beginning!

The Darksome Origins of Valentine Day

Most of us associate Valentine’s Day with love and romance.
Then again, most of us do not know of the dark beginnings of Valentine’s Day.
And they were very dark indeed!
Valentine’s Day has its origins in the Roman holiday of Lupercalia which is a rather perturbing fertility festival. In ancient Roman times from February 13-15th Roman men, got naked, got drunk, killed a goat and a dog as sacrifices, and then took the hides from the animals and used them to beat women with. And to top it all off, young women got in line to be hit by the said wet, and bloody animal hides because Roman society believed that being struck by the just skinned hides would ensure the young women’s fertility. Then as if that wasn’t enough of a spectacle, at least from our modern eye’s point of view, there was a lottery, that’s right, a lottery where the young women’s names were pulled from a jar and then that young woman would spend at least the night in question with the man that pulled her name. Sometimes, if the couple really hit it off they would stay together.
Now during the time frame that the …

Want to be a Bestselling Author? Change These Four Mental Scripts! Part 2

As I spoke of in Part 1 of this series, the only thing really that is stopping you from being a bestselling author is your thinking. Mental scripts that we learn from our parents, from society, and even from other authors and publishers often prevent us from having what we truly want from life. In the case of this series that is to be a bestselling author.
As an author, I hear three scripts over and over from both authors and publishers that I believe prevent many from becoming bestselling authors.

1. “There are too many free books available, no one is going to want to buy my books.”
2. “There are too many .99 books available, in order to compete I too must price my books at a very low price.”
3. “I know so many authors who have had their books pirated, it’s just a matter of time before my books are pirated too.”
4. “It’s impossible to become a bestselling author when there are so many self-published authors now.”
These mental scripts are just that, scripts. They are only true if you believe them. If you convince yourself that these so-called “facts” are reality then they will …

Want to be a Bestselling Author? 4 Experiments Pam Grout Style! Part 3

The first two articles in this series dealt mainly with learning how to change your thinking, and alter the scripts in your mind so you can receive that which you so much want to receive, bestselling author status. I am now going to propose four experiments author Pam Grout style that you can use to prove to yourself that there really is a universe, God, divine Poo Ba or whoever that wants to give you exactly what you want. Honestly, just like Pam I don’t really care what you call it, The Force aka Star Wars, God, Athena, Zeus, or the field of infinite potentiality (that’s Pam’s name for it). However, in order for these experiments to work, you do have to believe in something out there that is greater than yourself, whatever name you choose.

Pam’s books E-squared, and E-cubed and Thank and Grow Rich have experiments and party games that are pretty awesome. These are just games you can play to prove to yourself that there is something out there greater than yourself and that indeed wants you to be happy, or in your case be a bestselling author!

Infuriating angel-demon!

Virtus Saga, Book 8

“So what do you say, Princess, if we tell our infuriating angel-demon what he means to both of us?”

Actually, he just wanted to bend Chris’s back and penetrate the tight ring of muscles all the way up to the throat, to celebrate Chris’s escape from death by rubbing their bodies together, then burying himself inside Chris and never pull out.

Ever again.

“You and I together? So that maybe we can finally teach him some manners?”
This new twist would raise the level like few other times before in their fucking.

“I can’t wait to start, Master.”

He needed no special Virt to interpret Ylianor’s immediate peak of excitement.

“How can I best serve your purpose?” Taking a step back, she bowed, having a hard time quieting the incessant throbbing of her slit and clit. “How can I best serve your lover and you yourself in the fulfillment of your pleasure?”

“I’d say we first get indoors.” Even if she had said nothing, he had caught her shiver of cold. Only natural, since the weather had taken giant leaps into the fall while playing Cecilia’s Game. An unusually icy autumn, if he …

The damn question is…Can you live without the hot erotic BDSCM of the Virtus Saga?

SERIES: Virtus Saga Book 4

The damn question is…

“Yes?” Opening her door, she did not seem surprised to see Chris, simply leaned forward slightly to peer at the dark and deserted hallway. “All alone?”

“He refused to come.” Annoyed, Chris regarded her coldly. “How did you know?”

“Not by spying.” She threw back her shoulders as though daring him to defy her. “Just listened to the gossip. Nobody could talk about anything else tonight.”

“So do I get to ask the damn question in the middle of the hallway?” He glared at her.

For she was making everything more difficult on purpose.

“Or can you at least grant me the privacy of your room?” But if she wanted to see him squirm, she still had a long way to go.

Ylianor stepped aside, then closed the door behind him.

“So everyone’s talking about us?” The room did not offer much in terms of accommodations besides the bed and a solitary chair placed on a side.

“Yes, also your mother—”

“You met my mother?” So he chose the bed, Duncan’s advice echoing in his ears.

“She wanted to meet me.” Ylianor sat next to him. “She’s a …

Not in The Game Deleted Scenes Virtus Saga + Ready to Becomes a Bestseller: Tips & Excerpt

One of the worst things in my opinion that can happen is to write an entire story, and then no one buys because said story has three issues, and these issues kill the story on arrival.
There are three things that will kill a story on arrival in online bookstores. Here they are, and here is what you can do the correct these issues so you will have a bestselling story.
1. You wrote in too much back-story. Readers do not want to read pages and pages, or even one page for that matter that is nothing but back-story about the main character’s past. In fact, this will cause readers never to buy another story from you. So, how do you fix this issue in your current story? First things first, don’t get hung up on going back and changing past stories, leave them alone where they are, readers are looking for new material from you and they want it yesterday! Fix the story you’re working on now and stories going forward. So, what you need to do is go through your story and be ruthless in cutting out any sections that are just back-story fluff. Once you’ve done that, …

How to Get New Story Ideas? Read my tips and erotic BDSM excerpt Becoming Zero: Slave for a Summer!

As much as we’d all like to say, “Uh, yeah, I always have ideas for stories.” You and I both know that’s not always true. Sometimes inspiration strikes and sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes your characters are talking to you and sometimes they’re not. So, how do you get new story ideas when you feel like your story idea well has dried up?
1. Read
That’s right read a few books, short stories or novellas. Take time away from writing and help to feed your muse by reading. After all, who hasn’t read a storyline and thought, “I could do better than that”? We all have. Now keep in mind I’m not suggesting you steal the other author’s idea, but there’s nothing wrong with taking a concept another author used and turning it upside down for your own story. For example, you read a story about a dragon shifter and a human that fall in love even if forbidden to, and all the obstacles to their happy ending that happen during the story. You could write a story about an alien prince who is also a shifter who just happens to shift into not an earth animal, but an extraterrestrial type …
