Pull up a chair. Let's talk.

Clearly I’m Missing Out

Today, I decided to return to Smashwords, republishing One Night in Bridgeport there for the low, low price of .99.  Yes, that’s right.  If you don’t have a Kindle, but instead of a Nook or a Kobe or a whatever other e-reader there is, you can now read my incredible novel on said e-reader.  I’m no longer exclusive to the Kindle.

I just spent some time lurking on the Smashwords site ( and came away convinced I’m on the wrong track there.  I clicked on the Bestsellers tab and came away convinced that smut sells.  At least on Smashwords.  While the #1 bestseller is a book about productivity, every book that follows has names like Creamed Buns, Beauty from Pain, Just a Little Surprise, and, my favorite, Round Robin: A Short Story of Incest.  Here’s the blurb for Round Robin:

This “Green Shorts” short story opens with James peeping on his mother as she masturbates. The excitement this causes in the well-endowed teenager sets off a chain reaction of lust and seduction that engulfs his whole family. James proceeds to bed his sister, who then seduces the mother, who in turn makes a play for her son James. By the story’s end, the family is sexily and happily transformed!

Time to get cracking on my own piece of literary pornography.  Clearly, I’m missing out.  Question is … should I publish under my own name or assume a mysterious new identity.

    To write crap like that? An assumed name please. Perhaps something like ‘Sick Bastard’ I can’t believe people buy and ENJOY books like that!

    Yikes. I kept hearing that porn was the big thing on Smashwords, but I didn’t think incest was high on the list. No wonder my light-hearted fantasy did crappy there. Needed some incest.

    Aren’t people weird! The thought of masturbating to a family member is distinctly offputting. But hey, just rename it One Night in Gomorrah and you’re good.

      No, no, no. I’m going for Fifty Shades of Zombies in Bridgeport.
      I’m all for the whole sex thing, but with family? Um, no.
