  1. Mira, you made some good points. I didn't realize that Beauty had a satisfying ending. From what my friend told me it didn't sound like that's where it was going, but it's been like 12 years since I tried reading it (and I was pretty young at the time) maybe I should give it another try. Although since meeting so many new and amazing authors my reading list has grown drastically! If you enjoy M/M you might want to give Over the Rainbow a try. Only a few of the stories are erotic in nature, but mostly it's a good introduction to a lot of authors, many of them write M/M stuff. Alexa Land is jus
  2. If it's erotic romance, it doesn't need to be toned down. They're looking for hot and spicy
  3. I'm pretty new to this genre and new to writing on a professional level. But I think from your original post this is important: Or does keeping the romance in erotic romance not leave room for too many sex scenes that are still meaningful? There is a big difference between erotica and erotic romance. Erotic romance still centres around the love story, it has to come to a meaningful and happy ending, the sex isn't supposed to be thrown in. Sex for the sake of sex is erotica. So when you're writing you need to keep in mind audience (this is what I keep hearing). For me personally I'm not a big
  4. I've heard good things about Mailchimp. And I think it's free up to the first 2,000 subscribers. I've used Wix in the past, although Andrew (my tech guy) is a big Wordpress fan, and that's what we'll be using. Although I'm starting to get the hang of it. He also set me up with this thing called Disqus, it's for the comments. So rather than use Wordpress' built in comment feature we'll be using Disqus. What's cool about it is that to comment people have to log in, or use their Facebook or Twitter profiles to comment. I hope it doesn't discourage people from posting, but the reasoning is
  5. Thank you Aidee! Very helpful. I think I have most of those things already. I've been peeking around on other author's websites to see what they've been doing. It's an insane amount of work, and I really don't know what I'd do if my husband's buddy wasn't helping me out. He's gone way above and beyond. I'll keep checking back to this list to ensure that I have everything. Although I think I'll save the printable list of books until I have more than one!
  6. By the way, I just stopped by your website. I'll take a longer peek when I have more time, but your chapter one excerpt starts with a really strong hook. It pulled me in, I definitely want to read more!
  7. Thanks Dan. Good info. I had planned to use Mailchimp, but I had no idea about connecting it to my mailing address. That's really good to know.
  8. I'm getting together with my tech buddy this weekend launch my website. I've got a few ideas I've gathered from research, workshops, etc. but I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts, tips, hints they wanted to share about the creation of their own website. What did you find difficult, what was easy, what's a must have (besides: book lists, bio, mailing list, and contact) Thanks! Cameron
  9. That's exciting! What type of project is it?
