Magic Means Books 1-3 Boxed Set [Free Forever!]

2019-Magic-Means-Box-Set-Cover-Unmodiiable-on-white-transparentNow, the three books that set up and explore the story of my favorite Occult Shop: Van Veld Books, are free forever in a brand new digital boxed set. You get everything you would if you were to buy books 1-3 separately as well as a big preview of Book 4, so you can enjoy the founding of the modern bookstore and see where the story starts to go from there.

I love writing Magic Means. it’s a series where so much is possible, and it’s so much more than a simple erotic series. It’s a slice-of-life series where you live with Scott, Isabel, Inez, Mack, Lilith, his faerie tribe and so many more characters as they try to find their way through life in Old Town.

Old Town is simply a quarter of Verlor, where free love didn’t end with the 60’s and a growing number of people practice the light side of magic. The worlds of faeries, elves, dwarves and humans intersect with increasing regularity, and there are secrets everywhere. The Dark Enclave, a group of evil magical practitioners, and other organizations would like to see Old Town come to an end, and they make this plain from the very beginning, as Scott starts setting up his shop.

It is truly an exciting world to tell stories in, and I often get lured into side plots that lead to erotic encounters with new and old characters as they flirt, experiment and celebrate each other. By making these books free, I’m inviting you to take a look at the very beginning, so you can see what I’m talking about and fall in love with one or more of the characters yourself.

I’m working on Magic Means Book 7 now, as I finish editing Book 6 with a group of brave copy editing faeries who have an endless appetite for this series, just like I do.

As of today, here are the sites that have it for free:

Going Big In 2020

For an agonizing three months all my best books have only been available only on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited platform. Sure, I opted in myself, but after spending on advertising, writing more content and releasing it wide (Magic Means Books 4-5), and working on other plans to get page reads there, things didn’t turn out as I would have liked.

Most importantly, people who didn’t want to grab my stuff from Amazon couldn’t get it elsewhere. As I discovered through a few direct messages and emails, that is definitely a problem.

So, soon you can expect to find my work everywhere, no more exclusives. That is, unless it’s one of my new short stories, which won’t appear on Amazon for the foreseeable future because those stories are too controversial or graphic for that platform.

I think there will be a day when Amazon removes most of the self-published controversial erotic content from their platform, and I plan on already being well established elsewhere, on platforms like Smashwords, where imaginative writers and interested readers can enjoy pretty much whatever they like. Barnes & Noble, Kobo Adult, and the Apple Books platform deserve a mention too. They haven’t caught the censorship bug yet.

So, on January 7, 2020, my books will be set free, and they’ll be available everywhere quality racy pop literature is sold. For Kindle Unlimited readers who discovered me there, you have until January 3 to read those pages, after that you have to buy my work like everyone else, but it’s worth it.

Until then, here are two free short, spicy stories you can download anywhere but Amazon. Teenage Hot Tub Threesome | Poolside Surprise

A Teenage Hot Tub Threesome

Teenage-Hot-Tub-Threesome-GenericA new short that brings me back to the last of my high school days, when I was eighteen and had all the energy in the world. Check out my latest free ebook: Teenage Hot Tub Threesome.

This was a ditty I wrote for fun that I’m not too bashful to share. All characters featured are depicted as 18 or older. Remember, if you’re offended, I warned you about that and it’s all just fantasy.

You can get it in ePub or Kindle format from Smashwords.

Magic Means Books 4 & 5 Release Date

2-book-boxset-books-4--5-TRANSPARENT-On November 21, 2019, Magic Means Books 4 and 5 are releasing in one boxed set. It’ll be available everywhere, not just on Amazon. This series is an obsession for me, and I’m so happy to continue the story.

These books continue the slice of life style of storytelling in and around the Van Veld Building, where anything can happen. There’s a lot going on as the High Priestess returns with a new plan for the Light Enclave and new characters move in, complicating and spicing up a lifestyle that was already exciting for Mack, Lilith, Isabel, her twin Inez and Scott.

This is the continuation of a writing obsession that puts character and story at the centre of an experience that celebrates drama and explicit erotic content. It’s the kind of series Penthouse might turn into a spicy soap opera, only with magic.

From the rooftop of the Van Veld Building where I’m watching over Old Town,

Life As A Male Erotica Writer, Magic Means, self-publishing

I’m On Facebook!

facebook thumbing youI know, so many people talk about leaving Facebook, so why am I running back into it’s waiting arms and feely hands as they pick my pockets (and my very soul!) for data and check the colour of my underpants like a creepy uncle?

It’s the biggest platform out there. Even if you fail to reach people on Facebook, you can at least say you had a toe-hold there, which is actually still worth something. So, if you want to get felt up by Facebook’s information seeking system with me, friend me, and check in to the Magic Means page. I’d like to see who is part of the community I’m building around these books.

I’ll be around these places:

Magic Means Books 4 and 5 Will Be Published In One Volume

Magic-Means-Book-4-Cover-final-SMALLThat’s right, with Magic Means books 1-3 on Kindle Unlimited, I’ve decided to release books 4 and 5 together. They will sadly not be available through Kindle Unlimited, but will be on Amazon and every other major platform such as Apple Books (formerly iBooks), Kobo, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Smashwords among others.

I have heard you, and I’m happy to announce that, as of January 3, 2020, these and the rest of my books won’t be exclusive to any one platform, but will be available broadly.

Magic Means Books 4 and 5 make up one huge 128,000 word story which could not be split into two books as planned. It’s a slice of life style story that features the rising power of several characters, more of Mack’s story (including his faeries), and an explosive ending that launches the next three books in the series. It’s a trip into this world that is thorough, intimate and emotional and I’m eager to put it in front of you.

This series doesn’t have many readers yet, I suspect it’s sitting on hundreds if not thousands of readers as a freebie many people downloaded but haven’t read yet, but I know more people are coming. The reviews are great so far, so I know more people will be joining the readership and me on this mystic, sexual trip.

The copy editor for the series suggested the cover I’m using for Books 4 and 5, and he encourages you to take a close look. There’s a lot going on, so keep checking back, or subscribe to the site so you don’t miss a thing.

Exclusive to Kindle Unlimited Until January 5, 2020

LibrarianFor the next few months, I’m only offering my books through Amazon. This is an experiment that I decided to do because a lot of new authors are having great luck launching their careers there.

While I’m not a big fan of exclusivity, there is a huge upside. If you have a subscription to Kindle Unlimited, where you get to read an unlimited number of ebooks from a library of two million or more titles, you can read any of my books, especially the Magic Means series, for free.

So, if you have Kindle Unlimited, give me a try, here’s my list of books on Amazon.

After January 5, I’ll be re-publishing my ebooks with all the major platforms, so no matter what kind of device or service you like, you’ll be able to get your hands on my books.

I hope to see you back here after you’ve tasted my work!
