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

Wicked Space: Dissent Part 1 The Sexy Space Opera Begins

Wicked-Space-GenericI’ve always wanted to see a revival of sexy futuristic stories. Fit heroes and heroines who look good while they’re saving the universe (even if they’re chunks of it up at the same time), and believe the latex and chrome future they’re living in is free and kinky (baby).

Wicked Space: Dissent Book 1 is the introduction to a series that celebrates the latex and chrome style of science fiction, and since it’s an adult book, it’s thick with sex scenes that range from the comical to passionate. Meanwhile, we have endearing characters like Perry the handsome space adventurer and Bolts the femdroid who was reprogrammed for combat. He’s looking for his real dreamgirl while she’s looking for upgrades and trying to be more than his cheeky sidekick.

The whole thing is wrapped in a rebellion that strives to make breeding free for all after a major corporation has taken control of human reproduction.

I have to admit that I fell back in love with the first book as I was editing it. The first one is free and the second one will be super cheap.

Synopsis!
Krista, a mousy, bright woman is remade in the future as a gorgeous lady with a wicked libido by Regen, a corporation that controls most of human reproduction.  A Horny Mandroid, Space Cowboys and a resistance group who fights to make breeding free for all humanity make an already complicated rebirth even more exciting as she learns about sex, love, herself and how she can find freedom in a future obsessed with sex.

Wicked Space is a sexy science fiction space opera series that delivers steamy entertainment, drama and action thanks to characters like Krista and her friend Andi who worked for a bikini company in the 21st century but are reborn into beautiful bodies and made to serve Regen, the company that controls most human reproduction in the future. There’s more to the story as Perry and his faithful companion Bolts the sex android who was upgraded for combat and exploration go in search of technology and supplies for a resistance fighting to make breeding free for all. His brother Damon assists Laula as she schemes to liberate Krista and Andi from under Regen’s nose. They’re all destined to come together, but what will happen when they do? Will Regen realize two of their prized stock are about to be sprung free? Find out that and solve the mystery of the horny Mandroid in this sexy Space Opera!

Wicked Space Series Cancelled

Wicked-Space-GenericThe feedback for Wicked Space has been largely positive. Most of the criticism I received was constructive and absolutely helpful for the first book and I agree with most of the comments early readers were kind enough to share with me. So, my experience with Wicked Space Book 1 has been great so far.

If that’s the case, then why am I cancelling it?

Wicked Space Book 1 was originally written under the name Dariya Saint, and I shared it chapter by chapter on LitErotica. There’s a tendency to include as many sex scenes as you can when you’re publishing on that site because of the sheer number of people who turn up for only that content – a quick sex scene to titillate to the point of satisfaction before they move on to another site – and I definitely fell into that trap. That led to Wicked Space Book 1 having more sex scenes than plot content, and they weren’t the best sex scenes to begin with. Nor was the breeding war idea explored well. It’s not a new idea in science fiction for humanity to have to breed their numbers back to a sustainable level, I think there was even an R rated SciFi flick in the 70’s based on the idea, and I know a lot of erotic novels went there too. In short, I asked myself if I would change much of the book if I could rewrite it and the answer was a resounding YES! I would scrap it and start over for the most part, keeping the adventure scenes with Perry and Bolts the Android practically unchanged. It was the other 70% of the book I’d chuck. Also, looking at Book 2, which is almost completely edited and ready now, I realized that it was so much better! When you release a new series, you have to start strong, and Book 1 is the weaker of the two novels by far. The constructive criticism I received pointed to that as well, so it wasn’t just me.

The sad part of this is that editing and rewriting would take months. So, since more than half of the first book would be cut completely, and the second book would have to change drastically, I decided to concentrate on something that’s working instead of trying to rebuild my sexy space opera. Magic Means is sexy, fun, has good characters, and a story with real heart. It stars characters who start out looking out for their own interests, but learn that they have a real need to protect others in a city that is largely influenced by the powers of darkness. The emotional response to the book is very real, with early readers cheering a few times, laughing many, many times, and even crying once or twice during a read through of the early material. That’s what I’d rather focus on.

Worry not! I will eventually write a Sexy Space Opera, but Magic Means will by my first series under the name Damon Rain. Wicked Space may have been the Sexiest Space Opera in the Galaxy, but it didn’t measure up to the standards I’d like to keep. I’ll resurrect the Wicked Space series with a different story someday, but for now, I’ll be writing about a great big Magic Shop in the middle of Old Town in the Magic Means series. Watch for it, you won’t regret it.

Wicked Space: Dissent Part 1

Wicked-Space-GenericThe first of the full-length novels that I’m publishing this year is out! Wicked Space is a sexy space opera trilogy, and the first two books are already finished. The first is out, the second will arrive on June 11. Here’s the synopsis:

It is the distant future, and humans are almost extinct. Most people are infertile. Regen, a massive corporation is the leader in repopulation technology and they make everyone pay for it. The wealthy breed first and with the best. Little do they know, two of their own breeding stock are being groomed to join a rebellion that promises to return the power to procreate back to the common people. It’s a breeding war unlike the galaxy has ever seen, and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.

Wicked Space is a sexy science fiction space opera series that delivers steamy entertainment, drama and action thanks to characters like Krista, a once average woman from the 21st century whose memories are used in the growing of a charming companion who must breed for the Regen Corporation hundreds of years later. Will she stay with the company until her contract is over? It’s unlikely! Krista remembers what it’s like to be free, so she waits for her moment to turn on her masters.

These books were originally published under my previous pen name; Dariya Saint. I’ll be writing about my experience under that name soon. These books were fun to write, so I hope you enjoy them!

Exclusively on Amazon Kindle Unlimited this summer.
