Congratulations Katherine and Frank on your new published story. I bought a copy on Amazon today.

The story cover looks amazing. It looks sharp, classy, and stands out. I love the split page with the couple on top and the view of the city on the bottom.

Thank you very kindly. I hope you like the story as much as the cover! :)

You two write amazingly well together. This was such a treat to read! But you so left me wanting at the end. I wanted just a little more sex. Embarassed

In any case, I'd EP the shit out of it if I could. Thanks so much for writing it. :)

Thank you very kindly, Ms. RavenStar! In the immortal words of PT Barnum: "Always leave them wanting more." :)

It's so good to hear you liked the way we write together. I never expected collaborating to be so much fun, but it surprised me. Having such a marvelous writer as Delphi for a partner makes all the difference, I guess. This started out to be something fun to do that we expected would be a shorter story we could post here on Lush, but it just kept growing and developing. We've already gotten a five star review from a reader on Amazon Canada, which unfortunately doesn't show up on our US or UK Amazon pages. The really nice thing was that it came from a completely new reader.

kiera, I hope you'll decide to include Fire at Dawn in your ebook library. And if you do, please let us know what you think. :)

Ok..Pls dont hate me.

As a gold member can i read this for free or not?

I will happily pay just to read Will's. But I also see a perk to being a gold member is that you get some free e reads. Is this one?

I am not looking for a freebie just wondering how that works, because I very much want to read this when it's out...If I had seen it sooner I may have contributed to it.

Hi kiera, No one's going to hate you just for asking a reasonable question. As a gold member, I believe you get ten free ebooks. Seems like a great deal to me. The anthology is due for an August 5th release, so you should be able to get a free copy anytime from there on. If you could send me a PM around that time that would be great.

I'm sorry you didn't hear about the call for submissions earlier. And unfortunately, you're not the first person to say that. There are a lot of excellent writers who didn't get a chance to submit. There were announcements here, and also on LP's new twitter and FB pages as well as the LP website. I'll leave links to those pages below, and I hope as many people as possible will like and follow so future announcements will reach more people. I also hope people will stop in here and check the forum too, and when the next anthology is announced, be sure to spread the word to any of your friends you think might be interested in submitting.

And I agree with you about Will. The man is a terrific writer, and hopefully we'll have a single author title from him in the not too distant future.

This is a complete disaster and I have no idea what to do. Fire at Dawn, the erotic romance novella I wrote in collaboration with Delphi, a.k.a. Katherine Rollins, isn't being officially released until tomorrow, the 14th. However, in some kind of crazy mix-up, Amazon already has the book up live. This is terrible! Now people are already talking about downloading the book, and it's not even officially published yet! At a buck ninety-nine, there's probably going to be a huge glut of downloads before the actual release.

I just don't know how I can work under these conditions. evil4

Poppet just informed me of this anthology, Frank. It looks like a great idea and an exciting book. I'll be sure to pick up a copy.

The whole process has been a real pleasure. From working with Poppet on her first ebook appearance to discovering a couple of writers I should have read long ago. Poppet is guaranteed to make you sweat. PervyStoryteller will have you sweating and clutching your sides in laughter at the same time. Wilful is going to have people holding their breath. Buz is going to take us all back in time a ways...and if you love a little classic car porn, Key West is just the story for you. And SITTING...what can you say about SITTING? There's a new guy by the name of Jimmy Starling as well, and he's just plain dirty.

We're getting the final touches down with the editing of the last couple of stories...and still expecting one or two more possibles. It's going right down to the wire!

Frank, let me get this straight, only beach or summer setting stories, and can they be already published here?
I know of one that might fit your criteria, not mine, but would not want to tell my friend if the story does not meet what you are looking for.

here it is

I hope to hear from you so I can tell my friend, or you can contact them I guess...

Thank you
Chica

Hi Chica, Thanks for the heads up, but only unpublished stories are considered. Any kind of summery, resorty, exotic locale theme is welcome. There have been some really inventive takes on this, and I'm very excited about the submissions that have come in. The idea is to celebrate summertime....vacation time...like that. The final editing is underway now, but if you or anyone you know has something that's ready to look at then a few more submissions would be welcome. In another week or so, the window will unfortunately have to close.

Topic Removing stories here for sale on Amazon?
Posted 19 Jun 2015 13:12

GW,

Metilda's point about simply hiding your stories vs removing them completely is an excellent one. And what she's saying about Amazon changing their policy as well is worth considering. I'm still undecided about it, but I'm not especially fond of Amazon to begin with, and they are biased against erotica regardless of the revenues they collect from it.

You can certainly change your name here without losing any part of your profile. I'd suggest asking one of the mods who to contact for help. If you visit the Lush Publishing forum here you can get the general rundown on how, where and what to submit. You can also send me a PM anytime you'd like if you have any questions.

I don't mean to sound disparaging, but poetry may not be the best way to test the waters. It's not a popular item anywhere, and you're sure to get a better audience right here than anywhere else. New readers can get to know you here.

Feel free to send a PM, if you like, but if Nicola and Metilda are offering, too, write to them as well. It can't hurt to get as much information and different points of view as you can.

Topic Removing stories here for sale on Amazon?
Posted 19 Jun 2015 11:59

Has anyone removed one or more of their stories here for sale on Amazon? I'm intending on writing / selling on Amazon, but I have some stories here that I would like to delete here and publish under another name on KDP. Anything TOS / legal-wise wrong with that?

Thanks,

GW.


Hi GW, if you don't mind another comment to add to what Nicola has said.... If you're planning to post something on Amazon that was already published here, then you're not likely to get as large a readership as you're used to here. Especially if you're going to use a new pen name and starting out completely fresh. Lush is an excellent place to build a readership, and you can certainly let your readers here know of your name change, but if they've already seen your work here then not many are likely to follow you to Amazon.

Your best bet is to publish something new, and then you can promote it with your readers and followers here. If you publish an ebook on Amazon, publishing some here for free at the same time is an excellent way to bring traffic to your Amazon page while your ebook is new. Strike while the iron's hot, as it were.

You can also think about submitting to an established erotica publisher (like Lush Publishing for example :) who will handle putting together your cover, editing and formatting your manuscript, and giving your title more exposure than you can on your own. A lot of people prefer the independence of self-publishing, but it's a tough slog out there on your own.

Whatever you decide to do, I hope it works out the way you hope.

Sometime in the next week or two, the fine folks at Lush Publishing are going to announce the release date of Fire at Dawn, a brand, spanking new novella co-written by Ms. Katherine Rollins (a.k.a. Delphi, in case you live in Saskatchewan and didn't know) and some dude who's a member here and posts dirty stories once in a while. I can't remember his name right now.

Fire at Dawn is an erotic love story set in Spain and Cyprus. Editing is nearly complete, and we should have a cover image to show off soon!

Just wanted to bump this thread and let folks know the anthology is coming along beautifully. We have an excellent group of stories already in the can, and a few more really promising ones on the way. Editing has already started, and to those of you who are waiting to see notes, thanks for being patient while the juggling act is in progress.

If anyone has been thinking of submitting, there's still room for more, and we can keep taking submissions through the end of this month. Then, in July...get ready for the heatwave!

Topic What is the best Mid Range DSLR Camera for your money?
Posted 11 Jun 2015 05:00



Mirrorless does seem to be where the next big things are going to come from. For me they are an obvious step forward with the technology but you still can't stop people wanting to have an SLR to look like a "proper" photographer. That said, who's going to argue with someone carrying one of those gorgeous Leicas?


True. "Size matters" is a be-all, end-all concept for a lot of photographers. I'd love a Leica M camera, but ever since I started shooting with Fuji's X cameras I've lost a lot of my curiosity about others. Not that I wouldn't love to have a good full frame camera in the arsenal.

Thanks Mr. Lee, I'll take a look.

I hope it's helpful. The reviews can get pretty technical, but you can just jump to the conclusion page and get the overall comments which can be more straight forward in a practical sense. Then once you choose a camera you can start shopping for accessories! :)

You can also check here for some good ideas in regard to setting the camera up once you have it in hand. http://www.kenrockwell.com/

The reviews and forums here are an excellent source for research. There are sample galleries with all the cameras reviewed, and reviews for many of the older models above are still online and allow you to compare how the technology and performance of various models have changed from one generation to another. At this point I'm pretty much a convert to the Fuji X series, but then I don't shoot a lot nature/landscapes, but shoot in low light a lot.

You might also want to look at micro 4/3 cameras. Panasonic and Olympus have some excellent cameras in this category.

Both of the deadlines that have been set (and reset) were announced in posts up above. Since there's seems to be such a fresh wave of interest...let's say June whatever-ieth is the deadline. But really...if anyone is working on something and is afraid of missing, please just get in touch with me directly and we'll work something out. It would be great to publish the book before the end of summer, but even better would be just to have a collection of great stories. That's more important than any deadline.

Please let me know via PM if anyone has any questions at all.

The anthology is to be a collection of shorter stories, but a 5 to 6 chapter story sounds like something you might want to consider submitting for consideration as a single author ebook. Always on the lookout for those, too!
