Hello and Happy Saturday!
If you follow me here, you know that I am a busy person. I don’t let the grass grow under my feet.
After giving agents plenty of time to ‘ring me up,’ I released Schadenfreude, Captives of Pleasure Island on both Amazon and Smashwords last night.
To the many of you already reading about Lacy and her harrowing experiences with Ben, Thank you so much!
Analytics show that Smashwords has already had hundreds of hits on this book alone. Amazon only gives me sales but…You people are buying it! That warms my heart; it truly does!
I love this story so much. My emotional investment in my characters is incredible. When they are sad I am. When they are happy, I am too. It is much like the tail wagging the dog!
Many have no idea what Schadenfreude is. The textbook definition is deriving pleasure from someone else’s pain.
Again in the textbook scenario, it might be like, your sister in law that you despise lost her job. You smile inside while putting on a face of faux concern. That is Schadenfreude.
Now, in my novel, I take its meaning a little darker. You see, Ben makes Christian Gray look like a choirboy.
The most significant problem I had is making these two characters lovable while arcing them in such a way that you the reader would find them redemptive.
This novel is by far my most intricate and yet most satisfying as I genuinely love the characters and the story.
As always if you find typos get in touch with me at www.authortwscott.com.
If you genuinely want to do me a ‘solid…’ Leave me some feedback on the site, which you bought it.
With enough feedback, Amazon will promote it and guys, I work a day job, and I write. I would love to just write for you.
I have several WIPs that I am going to go back and address in the near future. If you bear the title of agent and you snoozed on this one, there are plenty of others in the pipeline. Us the link and say Hello!
Hugs and much love -TW
