Magic Means 6 & 7 Are Out!

At long last, the dramatic, humorous and often sexy Magic Means series continues with two new books. Congregation: Magic Means 6 introduces a new character: Amy Angel. She’s escaping her stepfather, who has been keeping her under strict control as she models for his extremely chaste tease website, Christian Stars. Tired of getting little pay and no freedom, she slips out of her Stepfather’s grasp and makes her way to the Van Veld building, where she knows her old friend, Samantha will help her.

Amy Angel also brings bad news: the church her Stepfather’s involved with is preparing to protest the very existence of Van Veld Books, the first real Occult store in Old Town in years.

Meanwhile, Scott and Isabel explore their relationship and Old Town a little as they go on their first real date together. The rock star themed evening is sure to heat up. There are many more events in Congregation, which lead directly to the next book.

With the impending arrival of protestors and magicians from another world, the residents of the Van Veld Building find their own ways of dealing with, or avoiding stress. Inez begins to lean on old habits, hiding and peeping on people to see what they do when they think no one’s watching. Isabel and Scott are enjoying the afterglow of their first date and training new employees for the magic shop. Samantha is in hot pursuit of a new lover, but she’s still unsure of who she really wants; Ruby or Craig. Ruby continues to learn new things about who she may be, what magical power she might have and who she wants to flirt with most.

Mack and Lilith continue opening doors for the newcomer, Amy Angel, who is determined to become a sex star on the Internet to undermine her Stepfather and his wholesome picture site, of which she was the unpaid star model. There’s a lot going on, including a magical awakening, a mini-orgy, messy faeries, a new curse, a Peeping Pam, unexpected matchmaking, raging hormones and other things that I won’t spoil here.

You can find both books on my author pages at the following retailers:

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

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.

Founder: Magic Means Book 1 Available Today!

Founder-GenericWith a few last minute changes, Magic Means Book 1 is out today! The final title for this book is: Founder. It was the most fitting title because it refers to two characters that are critical to the series and focused on in this novel.

There are three parallel storylines featured in Founder: Magic Means Book 1. Each has lasting consequences for the entire series, so there is some depth to this series opener. Magic Means is a passion project for me, and I’m happy to say that there is some comedy, heart, action and yes – a few sexy scenes.

I’m wrapping up editing on Seeker: Magic Means Book 2 right now, and it will be out in July 21 of this year.

I hope you enjoy Founder: Magic Means Book 1. I’m happy to offer it to you for free.  Here’s where you can find it:

Smashwords [Available in all formats]
iBooks (By Apple)
Barnes & Noble [Coming Soon]
Kobo
Amazon [$2.99 Amazon will not allow me to price this book as free until enough people report a lower price]
