One at a time. Tweaking my Doubles: Posts, that is. Last Thursday (Wednesday to my USA pals), I posted an announcement that I will now post twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays (Mondays and Thursdays in the USA). This saw a spike in readership. Nice.
It might be one of those things, or it might be that Thursdays (Wednesdays, yeah you know where) is simply a better day for people to browse. I’m relatively new to blogging and have to take my cues where I get them. So, yes, you betcha, I’ll now be posting Tuesdays (Mondays) and Thursdays (Wednesdays), not Fridays (Thursdays).
This counts as one of them (oh shoot! Sorry ‘bout that). Okay, okay, that’s why there’s an Update on Book Two (I have to give you people something, right?)
Update on Book Two: I am now two-thirds of the way through The Imperial Son, and it’s looking good! I’m still tying in some complications (knotting seems a better word), to give some good twists and turns, but it’s all landing very nicely.
Sadly for some, it does not look as though I will be early as I first hoped, but I will be very easily on time. So, cheer up.
Now, An apology on Sex: Not everyone likes sex the way I write it, or perhaps I should say, not everyone likes the enactment to be without higher emotions (lust, not love). It does make some readers uncomfortable and for that I do apologize. The big scene – yes, the 30 page one – was supposed to be tense, of course, and it did present the Bad Guy as somewhat cold-blooded and unstoppable (and it was both tricky and fun to write). 😀 However, not all my sex scenes are selfish ones with the villain taking over, so please don’t give up on me yet.
Of course, it’s impossible to please everyone, so I can only be true to myself. While some don’t want sex in science fiction at all, a great many do. I see in the search criteria that a lot of people are looking for science fiction and erotica or science fiction and sex, and I’m getting more good reviews than bad ones, so I must be doing something right.
So, at the risk of offending the few, my next post on Thursday (Wednesday) will be a tantalizing one – Sevi in the nude. No sex, though. Shucks!
This is all open to disussion, by the way, so feel free to have your say. Keep it polite and non-pornographic and you won’t be edited, okay?
