Orange You Glad? is on sale at Excitica this weekend!

Orange You Glad?

Orange You Glad? is the companion book to Cherry, Oh, Baby, by H.G. Lightly. You know you want this. Get it now, while it’s on sale.

Normally 2.99, now only 0.99.

Cherry has a plumbing problem and needs someone to snake her drain. Peter wants to enter virgin territory with Cherry, but will he be too late? And Tina has a chance to ride a wave with a cute surfer girl.

In Orange You Glad?, Cherry, Peter and Tina are back at it, trying to figure out how their Three’s Company situation will work out. The three-way was great, with everyone getting a little taste of something new, but now what? Peter still wants Cherry, and he’s not selfish; he’ll share. Tina wants Cherry, but she’s finding sharing to be more difficult than she’d thought; after all, she had Cherry first, doesn’t that count for something? Cherry doesn’t know what the hell she wants, but she does know she doesn’t want to choose. What’s worse, she doesn’t seem to want to limit the playing field; do lesbians still call themselves lesbians when they’re screwing everything in pants? Follow the adventures of our three fruity lovers as they journey through deliciously juicy territory.

Bailey, the Family Pet is free for a few days

Bailey--525x840

Go get a free copy of Huck’s first erotic fantasy novel.

In a world where biotech has given the human race a new hormone that allows people to transition to pets, a middle aged man walks his young female pet through the park. She is eighteen, lean and nude. She walks at the end of a short leash. She can no longer speak. The hormones have taken that power from her. Her libido is raging on high. She eats kibble from a bowl in the garage. Human pets are the new Viagra. Bailey is one such pet. Why did she do it? She is young and beautiful and her many friends from the Brynmoore swim club adore her. But Bailey has a terrible secret. Becoming a human pet is her last good hope for a satisfying life. Bailey the Family Pet is the tale of one woman’s quest to discover herself in a hostile world that’s new and changing.

My Dad, the Pornographer

From Chris Offutt.

In the mid-1960s, Dad purchased several porn novels through the mail. My mother recalls him reading them with disgust — not because of the content, but because of how poorly they were written. He hurled a book across the room and told her he could do better. Mom suggested he do so. According to her, the tipping point for Dad’s full commitment to porn, five years later, was my orthodontic needs.

I haven’t even read the entire essay yet, but I love this paragraph so much I wanted to pass it on. I’m going back to read the rest of the article right now. The author, Chris Offutt, has a memoir coming out about his father. I want to read it.

Read the rest of “My Dad, the Pornographer,” from New York Times Magazine.

The Mentor is on free this Friday and Saturday

She is experimenting with heroin, shoplifting from the local mall, and her drug dealing boyfriend is about to turn her out. The only thing that can save her is a hot dose of tough love from a man she can depend on. Enter Don Manley, a guy Denver meets at an AA meeting. Don Manley is the mentor. He knows all about self destructive behavior. He knows how to give a girl like Denver just what she needs.

Huck loves to know what you think!

And the 2015 numbers for Amazon are available now

Amazon reported Dec 2015 results a few days ago. If you’ve been following the blog, you know that sales have been tanking for about 2 years now. What’s a pornographer to do? Double down and find a way to make some money.

heh.

So let’s look at my Best Sellers list for 2015 at Amazon.

amazon001

Bailey, the Family Pet was a November release.

KENP can be worth it, if you have the right title

I put Bailey, the Family Pet into Kindle Select (KS) and did some promotions with Selena’s new promotion list. I’m very happy with the results. Bailey, the Family Pet was my top seller for the whole year at Amazon.

But KS isn’t a silver bullet either. I also enrolled The Mentor in November, and it hasn’t done nearly as well.

Here are the KS numbers for both books.

amazon002

That works out to about half a penny for every KENP (every page read).

International sales means the UK

I finally worked out the details for how to do the conversion to get reasonably accurate results for International sales. As I’ve said, the International sales haven’t been huge, but the UK is a significant market.

Finally numbers that are trending upwards

Finally here are the quarters.

amazon004

Still not back to the heady days of 2012/2013, but that last quarter looks good. I’m encouraged, but I’m not out of the woods yet. Bailey, the Family Pet was an unusual book for me. I rarely do science fiction/fantasy erotica. I’m more of a The Mentor kind of guy. It’s frustrating that readers weren’t able to connect with it, so far. I’m still trying. More promotions coming as I wind down the KS enrollment period. I may keep Bailey, the Family Pet in KS for another go. I may put The Mentor in other stores.

Resolutions for the coming year

This year I’m going to keep running promotions with Selena and maybe Book Bub. I’m going to put new releases, especially longer books, into KS for initial release, because it seems to have a good impact on my back list at Amazon. Finally I’m going to write longer books. Don’t worry, I’ll still write shorter stories, but I may not publish them until I have enough to make 150 page anthology of stories.

If you’ve got ideas, I’d love to hear them in the comments. If you have questions, put them in the comments.

Meanwhile, good luck, and keep writing!

The Debutante’s Fall is part of this collection of lusty confessions. Along with The Debutante’s Fall, you’ll get The Price of Fame and He Sends His Regrets. If you have the time, I’d love to know what you make of these stories. Drop me a note or better yet, a review!

Get it now, my friends. Get it now!

The Debutante’s Fall is free over at Excitica

debutantes-fall

My story The Debutante’s Fall is free over at Selena’s new site, Excitica! Everyone go over there right now and get a copy and crash her server. I think you have to be over eighteen, but if you’re not eighteen, I think you should just lie and say you’re eighteen. I don’t think anyone checks.

If you want, leave me some feedback about the story. I am always interested in what readers think of the work.

Also, I am just kidding about getting the story if you’re not eighteen. Haha, I have to say this so I don’t get in trouble. But we all know that teenagers are not going to be reading erotica anyhow, because they’re all too busy watching it on the Internet!

 

Bailey, the Family Pet free all over the world for a few days

Bailey--525x840

Bailey, the Family Pet, is free tomorrow (Friday, November 27) and for the next few days. This story is my first attempt at erotic fantasy, and I am so pleased with the way it turned out and its initial reception at Amazon.

I hope you like it. If you do, be sure to leave a few words in a review or a rating. The books with reviews tend to do a little better in the market and let’s face it, the market is what it’s all about.

Thank you and happy reading.
