What is your secret fantasy?

If you could live out a fantasy what would it be?

 

Having spoken with many people from all walks of life, we have a common thread, our sexuality.  Even the most rigid, moral snobs, secretly want what you and I want.  I think that being judged by your peers in a court of law has merit, however; the fault is, there are lawyers involved.

Were you aware that while the judge must keep the law in mind, the lawyer’s job is not so much to prove your innocence or guilt but, sway the jury one way or another?  Usually, they do that with emotions as they are, after all, thespians. Yes, they act, either taking the moral high ground or playing the victim.  In fact, it is probably a sham.

I don’t know how a lawyer can live with himself or herself after getting a murderer or rapist off the hook by acting or finding some technicality.  The crooks are running the asylum, which we are unwitting players in from time to time.

Can you imagine if a case was presented exclusively on the facts?

  • Was she at the scene of the murder?
  • Were her fingerprints at the murder scene?
  • Did she have a motive?

No, we have things like how she is dressed and who her family is, and that she went to church and look, here are some pictures of her as a Girl Scout.  Wait, here are some pictures when she was a missionary in Haiti.

But what about these pictures of the murder scene with a knife sticking out of the guy’s chest?

“This delicate little flower could not have done it, look how fragile she is…” PFFFT!

If you have ever served on a jury, you can tell that the pool was selected carefully, looking for criteria that would suit their client’s case.  I was on a panel once that was for a murder trial.  The man was guilty as sin, and we had a few ladies that were not wanting to find him guilty as he had only murdered once, and he seemed like such a good boy, and his mama was there looking all pitiful.

How about that questionnaire that you have to fill out basically telling the attorneys how you will lean.  It is like a cookbook, telling them what they need to say to coheres you!  They need to abolish that damned thing!

How about a list of names, not sir names, just first names, or maybe numbers …they could be random picks from a hat.  That would indeed be fairer than knowing how you will come down on the facts or how to sway you…

Check it out, a car salesman took a young woman out to the back of the lot to show her a good deal on the loss leader car that they never sell.  He then knocks her on the head and rapes her. Now that he is done with her, “oh shit!  What do I do now, she will tell on me.”  Strangling her, he takes her to the creek near the back of the lot and tosses her body in.

Camera footage shows him walking off with her, and yet, they try to make her the sick person, as she has been known to “sleep around.”

She was, in fact, a college student who worked at the local topless joint putting herself through school.  This is where she met Mr. Murderer, who promised her a great deal…He raped her and killed her.

Imagine how her family felt… It is more about acting than the law, which is sad.  The bastard would not let the jury assess his fate if he lost… That was sad! I wanted to hang the fat fuck!  Those on the panel that wanted to acquit him might have had him slapped on the wrist.

Yes, they find the most emotionally susceptible to the pool and install them so they can each play to them.  Each attorney knows what to say to his or her picks.  The reasonable doubt hangs a lot of juries.

I once had a prominent attorney tell me that it is easier for him to get someone off if they are guilty rather than if they are innocent.  Folks the system is flawed.

My point is not to reform the system, although God knows that it needs it, my point is, we are all guilty.  We all have some deep dark secrets that we would probably rather keep buried.  The difference between them and us is, we won’t murder someone for a few minutes of pleasure…Would we?

That is one reason I am a proponent of legalized prostitution.  Men are what they are, women are what they are.  How do we deal with it?

Bishops and others who deny their sexuality, does not work out too well for them, well for their victims… Folks we were made, designed to procreate and that means sexually.

Ever had a nun for a teacher?  How was that?  A woman without release, wow!

So my pretties, what makes you moist?  If you are a guy what makes you “firm?”  If you could go to “Fantasy Island” and live out your fantasy, what would it be?”

One of the best lines I heard regarding wives is that the most excellent wife is an angel in the kitchen and a whore in the bedroom. Misogynistic? Probably, but think about it.  We all have those thoughts.  I have teased on several occasions about a delicious spanking before the main event. There is something attractive and somewhat dangerous about submitting to someone else.  Tied or tethered in such a way that you cannot move, and are at risk of being penetrated or spanked or whatever makes you misty or makes your mate Horney as hell.

“I think the perfect man or mate would be one who was tuned into your fantasy and was not afraid to take matters in hand.  Role play perhaps?   Arrange a cabin in the woods where a little rope play could take place.  Hot wax maybe?  How about restrained to where you cannot stop him or her as they bring you to orgasm time after time?  Nipple clamps?   They work on guys too…Just saying…

What would you say if you were asked to visit a clothing optional place?  How would you feel if your husband or boyfriend or perhaps your wife said that they had a desire to go to a nude beach?  What would that feel like to bare it all around others?  Would it make you damp? You men, would you have priapism, or would it go into hiding?

I have such a good time with different people from all walks of life.  Our diversity in thought and mores make us interesting.  The things that interest you or secretly turn you on are part of you. Is there harm in living out a fantasy?

Marriage, today in America, is doomed.  We are so stodgy, so constrained by mores passed down by the Puritans that many will die, never genuinely having one single orgasm!  I am talking about toe curling, wet patch creating, screaming “YES, YES, YES!” Orgasm!   If this is you…oh my, think Hitachi and read some of my books. Everyone should have orgasms often… That would be my wish for Americans and people everywhere.

I genuinely believe more orgasms would cut down on bull shit wars!

Several of my novels attempt to feed your fantasies.  Whether you are a man or woman, there is something in them for you.

I try to keep it from being smut.  I love a good story.  I like titillation, and I genuinely love when you can feel that you know the characters.  I strive for developing a connection between you and them.  I do that with character development.  When they are laying over someone’s lap or perhaps removing their clothing, I want you to feel that anxiety or that rush of adrenaline.

If you get misty, I am so thrilled for you, and for me.  If you are a man and end up with taking things in hand, that is ok too.  Good for you, and me!

If on the other hand, I can elicit a tear, wow that is excellent news too.  I strive for laughter more than tears as I am a happy person, and I try to spread that humor and joy, when and where I can.

My latest novel came back from the editor today, and I posted it on Amazon.  She tells me it should sell for over $20.  I am letting you have it for a mere $3.99…

Over 93,000 words of story for you to enjoy.

Our leading lady falls in love with her roommate in college.  This is complicated by the fact that her friend Joan has a lesbian for a mother, who was a supermodel in her day.  She sees the two playing volleyball nude in the pool and for the first time, sees her friend as a possible model and not her daughter’s friend.

Gloria, her mother, is a capitalist hatching a plan to exploit her.  She wants to push Melissa into a career that she left, to be her manager.  Selling her to the highest bidder making money from her, was her plan.  Where the heart is involved, trouble ensues as things are not going to happen as she plans.

Joan also has a dark secret that Melissa and Gloria now have to deal with.

Kitties, Titties and Winks, should show up soon as available, so keep checking my author page for updates.  Until some agent or publisher discovers me and talks me into signing with them,, my books are dirt cheap.

Day 1 2018 Zombies are Real!

Sitting here at the keyboard on the first day of 2018.  All is quiet in the house; not even the cats are stirring. I too feel like my mind should be still as I did imbibe a little-fermented grape juice or was it whiskey. Hmmm.   At least I returned home with the clothes that I went out with.  I think….

Somewhere during the witching hours of eating, dancing, drinking, waiting for a big ball to drop, and hoping anything that I said or did does not end up on YouTube, it got damned cold for Texas.  The plants that I covered up to protect are now plantsicles.

The hotel this morning was awash with zombies.  Young child creatures carrying oversized teddy bears thought that screaming at the top of their lungs was a fun thing, as they watched the zombies shrivel to almost pulp. The piercing sounds that could break glass were no match however for the evil stares from the zombies who tried to use their magical powers to silence the evil imps.  Had they looked into the eyes of the Zombies they surely would have evaporated into steam or possibly frozen into marble statues to stand as a stark reminder to the other urchins, never taunt or antagonize a zombie on New Year’s Day!

I did not fall into the undead or walking dead category this beautiful day.  I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing.  I saw the ragamuffins as someone else’s problem and went about my way to find one of the carts that hotels often have in good supply.  Waiting over an hour by the cart return area, two zombies of unknown sex or age came walking at a snail’s pace, pushing said cart as if they were Sisyphus struggling to manage the two roller bags and one black dress.  Slowly losing ground against the load, a bellhop took pity on them, or me, and assisted them with their load.

One of the zombies went to the door only to be met with the harsh reality of “DAMN ITS COLD OUT!”

I, although annoyed by the lack of courtesy of the zombies laughed at the sudden jolt of life that seem to lurch through the embalmed veins of the gray creature. Color of some sort seemed to well up from somewhere deep inside the beast as their animated arm movements caused some circulation of the antifreeze still sloshing through the carcass of this fiend. For the first time, I was able to tell that it was the male of the species.  I could tell this as it growled in a deep voice as it struggled against the automatic door for the disabled to breach the icy unknown terrain of the sunlit parking lot.

Thirty minutes later the creature managed to maneuver his vehicle to the entrance of the hotel where his mate waited patiently or was it dead.  The mate did not move as the car pulled close to the door.  I was not sure that it was still breathing.  Carefully I nudged it as it snorted and then as it’s large eyes opened it looked at me through a crimson hays.  I suddenly became fearful as it appeared as if it had the eyes of Mordor, and I had no magic ring to toss at it.  I cringed thinking surely that daggers would come out of those gaunt looking features but it actually spoke. “Yes, can I help you?” It said.  Clearly, this was the female although I could not picture it in that little black dress! I pointed to the other creature now looking very much like a yeti, which was standing outside his vehicle waiting for his partner, or was it his precious?

As she tried hard to stand, I slipped the bellhop five bucks to assist them and bring me the cart.  While I might have enjoyed watching the two creatures, try to lift their two bags and one black dress from the vehicle, my patience was just about gone, and I too felt as if the monster within me might immerge and ruin the first day of the year of me not sinning any more…   ever…. Who am i kidding! I sin before I ever get out of bed!

If my beast had come out to play, and I ripped my clothing off to expose my superhero status, would I have found a suite with a large S? Perhaps a suite with a large W?  Would there be a red cape or magic golden rope, or would I have established that I indeed did not have all the clothes that I started the evening with and suddenly resemble an oversized smurf with built-in glass cutters?

  • How was your first day of 2018?
  • Did you see the zombies?
  • Where you a zombie?
  • Are there videos of you on YouTube?
  • Did all of your clothes come back with you?
  • Did you know the person you woke up with?
  • Did you recognize the person in the mirror?
  • Did you see a reflection in the mirror?

Novel 26 is close to being ready to edit.  I am so excited that I have figured out how the book will end.  This is one book that I have put much thought into and actually planned it, rather than allow it be a stream of conscious.  “That will make sense to any writers out there.”

I look forward to getting to know each of you better in 2018!  Thanks so much for following me!

The reasons behind writing “The Girl Next-door”…#anorexia

My recent tweets about all of us starting out life as girls have stirred up some controversy. Sorry, I don’t have an issue with talking about controversial topics.  As soon as we all start speaking and listening, we can then come to an understanding of the facts, and not the half-truths or deliberate lies.

Before we talk about the Girl Next Door, let me just affirm that yes, we all start out life as girls.  Somewhere in the process of being born the chromosomes do their thing.  If you are to be a male something called the “virilization process occurs.” Female parts turn into male parts. Ovaries turn into testicles and vagina’s turn into scrotums.  That line up the middle of the scrotum is a scar from where the labia majora turned into a beautiful little place to house the testicles’ as they must be kept cooler in respect to the internal temperature of the body.  This cooler temperature is necessary to keep the sperm alive.  And yes that little love button explicitly created for pleasure, with twice the nerve endings as a penis, turns into the pride of most men, and a joy to most women.

Wiring in the brain becomes different to accommodate the difference in the sexes although who knows exactly what the anatomical differences are.  In short, Virginia, that is why men have tits!

I weave these facts in the tapestry of several of my novels as the information needs to be out there for the masses in an acceptable format.  As part of a story, people are more amenable to reading about it than if they are just confronted with it.  Are there differences in the sexes?  Yes, besides plumbing and a few small physical changes and, we are hormonally very different.  Those hormones are part and parcel to go along with the procreation process.

You can take the most male of men and with hormone therapy turn them into a crybaby when a sad movie is played.  Conversely, you can take the most feminine of girly girls and cause them to grow a beard, bulk up, and of course alter their personality and mental makeup altogether.  Hormones are critical to who we are and not too much attention is paid to them. Many are treated with psychotropic meds for depression when their doctors should be looking at their hormones!

One of my favorite singers growing up died of complications due to Anorexia.  That is what caused me to dive into anorexia, to begin with.  Later I had a friend pass because of this disease. Since then I have known many who have dealt with it.  While I often forget to eat, I don’t look in the mirror and see a fat person when the opposite is true.  I just am missing whatever trigger one has, that tells them to eat.  Lightheadedness is usually my cue to eat.

The Girl Next Door is a rags to riches story of a young woman who has had a pretty messed up childhood.  She is gorgeous and anecdotally should have a trail of broken hearts attached to her resume.

Her mother dies in an accident leaving just her and her father, who is bereft of the ability to assist her.  She works through her issues by focusing on school, until her last week when the pixies intervene.  It is time for her to discover herself and prepare for an adventure of a lifetime.

The Girl-Next-Door is a heartwarming tale of love and adventure as our characters travel to Scotland.   There she meets destiny head-on in a small pub on the coast.

The feedback thus far has been great.

In talking with people all over the country, I have learned that anorexia is more prevalent than even what I thought it was.  Some of you who follow me here on WordPress are dealing with this.  I would love to know your story.  I would also really appreciate your thoughts on The Girl Next Door.  I have tried to deal with this in a story format, that is fun.  Try putting the serious subject matter of anorexia in a fun, sexy romp, that not only deals with medical issues but gay issues as well. I dare you!

That is why this blog is juxtaposed with two complex subjects.  If you have read my blogs, tweets or even my books, you know that I genuinely care about people.  People from all walks of life, not just the well to do people.

When you figure out that we are all granted so many heartbeats, and that money or otherworldly things will not make a difference in the end, then you can move forward. Bill Gates, is no more special than you or I.  He has more worldly resources perhaps, but he has no more time on this earth than the next person.  There are no expiration dates stamped on your foot or mine.  When the bell tolls, we will know it.  Until then, seize the day!

If you like my blog, please follow me and tell others about me.  There are lots of good things here that others could benefit from if they knew about it.  While my end game is to sell books and promote my brand, a significant reason for this blog is to get to know you, the people who follow me.  You guys make it worth it.  I love reading what you write.

Through my website at www.authortwscott.com, I get lots of e-mails, and I am fine with that.  Comments here are good too.  Follow me on Twitter @authortwscott or @TWSCOTT823 and help spread the word.  I started the marketing process way too late.  I had written over twenty novels before I got serious about marketing.  Foolishly, I thought Agents would just come flocking by the droves, and I would have to beat them off with a club.

Nope.  While I do much better than many independent authors on sales, I still have a day job too!

My goal is to Quite the Day job and write full time.

Comments or suggestions are always appreciated.  Some of the feedback I get is about typos, and those are very much appreciated too. Even in my tweets, I see some of the silliest typos.  I cannot afford to pay some editor some ridiculous amount of money to watch for dangling participles. The same is true of hiring an artist to do my cover art.  I have done it as best I can with the time and skills allotted to me.  That is why the feedback is so excellent. One can read a sentence a hundred times, and miss the “you” instead of the “your” every time!

That is also why I have books on Kindle Unlimited. Many will read something for free and with luck, will spend a minute to tell me what they think.

Thanks for the follows, tweets and retweets!  If you are one of the many who are reading my books, Thank You so much!  It truly means a lot to me that you went out and purchased one of my novels or even read some of the free ones on Kindle Unlimited.

Much Love!  -TW

The following is an excerpt from Diamond Joe.

Here is a sample from my book.

 

Donna is a professor at the college.  After losing her husband, she had shut down emotionally. Fate played a hand as she happened to own a racehorse and was not getting it trained.  When one of her student’s friends, happened to be a trainer comes to assist her, things change.

 

I won’t spoil the book for your but below are a few paragraphs out of the chapter “Society.”

Donna and Sam fell in love and she married her.  She did it in a very public way which caused all sorts of issues for some stuffed shirts.  Below is from the book…

 

Some of the staff got together over dinner one night, and Blake was in attendance as well. Donna was enjoying the camaraderie while visiting with her peers.  Blake was tying one on.

Coming up to Donna the booze had its effects on him.  “Can I ask you something?”

“Sure Blake, what is on your mind?”

“You caused me a lot of grief a few months ago.”  He lamented.  Donna saw that he was feeling his drinks. “I am sorry about that Blake, what is your question?”

“No, it is ok, Sally straightened me up.  She even told me to pull my head out of my ass!”

Donna laughed at that as she thought Blake often suffered from Rectal-Cranial Inversion or RCI.

“So you were not upset by my wedding to Sam?”

“I was at first; I had people wanting to pull their support from the school and all kinds of foul calls, it was awful.  Sally pointed out that I was acting like a caveman and I needed to get with the times.”

“Blake, I had no idea that I would love another woman, but I do, what is your question.”

“Why the paper, why the public wedding.  Why not just do your thing in quiet and live your life.  You live so far out there that nobody would ever have known!”

The rest of the staff was listening ready to bite his head off.  Donna looked at them giving them the backoff look which they all knew well.

“Blake, I am going to tell you this, which I hope you will remember because I will not repeat this to you again.  I originally wanted to do just that. I told Dane and Marcie that nobody must know about this.”

“So what happened?  Why?”

“The teary-eyed love of my life looked at me and asked, we can tell people eventually can’t we?”

“Blake, that broke my fucking heart!  When I realized that I had just marginalized the love of my life to some god damned secret, it killed me! I will not apologize for loving another human being, not to you, the board of directors or the fucking president of the college! Anyone who thinks our marriage is any less than theirs is full of shit and fuck them! I have no tolerance for bigots.  When you realize that we are all human, barring a few minor differences in plumbing, we are basically the same; it makes a whole new argument out of it.  The inconvenience I caused you and some at the school is trivial in comparison to how badly I hurt that person who is so special to me! I hurt her by wanting to protect the fucking school over her.  Family comes first Blake!”

“I am sorry Donna, I had no idea.”

“I had to bribe the damned preacher to meet us at the hotel and marry us!  He would not do it at his church, and I had to agree to keep his name private.  Do you know how that feels?”

“Why not just go to the courthouse and do what the others….”

“Do you see what you just did?  “

“I see the problem; you feel cheated.”

“Blake I had the white dress, the flowers the parties and all that stuff with Steve.  Samantha got none of that!  She got screwed by the system, by bigots and ignorant assholes. The whole time that preacher was doing his thing I hated him in my heart!  He took money to do that which is against his fucking idea of morality.  Did you know that morality has a price?”

The people at the table were shocked.  They had no idea what it took to get married like most people. “I wish there were something I could do to make any of that right,” Blake said.

 

Yes, people, the book is that good and even better.  Most of my novels are that good if I do say so myself.  But…Since Saga of the Starduster is my number one seller maybe people like science fiction better than stories that are germane for today.

You can read part of it for free on Amazon but…I really would like you to read it and support independent authors such as myself.  I am loathed to waste my time trying to use the right magic words attracting an agent, so I need you guys to assist me.

With 25 novels out there, I just need one of them to go viral.

“How do you manage to produce so many books while working a full-time job?”

Learn how to find more time to write.

Paraphrased, this is probably the question that I get asked the most.

Action plan

To know what direction you are headed you need what?  You need a goal. If I, for instance, wanted to drive to Chicago from Dallas how would that work?

When I was a lot younger and had no deadlines pressing me, I might throw some clothes in a couple of bags, hire someone to watch the house, get into the car and point it north.

I love road trips without real purpose. However, we have stated that we have an end goal of arriving in Chicago.

Heading north as stated earlier would not get me to Chicago but North Dakota or Minnesota if not Canada. Again all great destinations but, missing our goal entirely.

Firstly we must map out our route which even with the technology we have today, there are several possibilities.

There was a time in my life when driving for twelve or thirteen hours straight was no big deal.  Now, not so much.  I would at least stop halfway.  Planning my trip today would include points of interests along the way, and I would indeed drive out of my way to see or visit something along the way.  These types of activities often provide fodder for manuscripts.

Let’s face it, if time were a real issue, I would hop on board a plane and be there within hours.

My action plan would include proper clothing for the season, as well as places to stop along the way.

The action plan would indeed include something known as “Time management.”

Writing a term paper or a novel is not much different.  With time being the common denominator that we all share, it is also the one thing that we must all guard against wasting.

What do you do with your time?

If you are uncertain about the validity of what I am saying; for a week log every minute of your day.  Don’t cheat.  Much like writing what you eat to assist you in a diet, try keeping up with what you did during the day.  Time management is crucial, and you must be good at it to be successful in life.

I think that sitting in front of the TV being conditioned continuously by whatever you are putting into your head is possibly one of the worst ways of wasting your precious time on this earth.  I truly think that it also dulls your senses and might rob you of who you truly are by supplanting what you know for ideas which are just bullshit.  Someone’s ideas that are put forth in a way to convince you that your long-held beliefs are false.

That is my opinion, and possibly you have a differing one.  We all know people who live through the TV.  Cancelling the cable might be not only a good money saver but, you might find you now have time to do other things.

Not only do we have TV and Netflix but, we have the computer or internet, and of course we have our tablets or phones to steal our time.  We spend so much time communicating nonsense with countless others, that we don’t communicate with those that we are the closest to.

How do you manage to write so much and work a daytime job?

What little I see of TV in passing makes me shake my head. Hundreds of cable channels to fill and they come up with some of the lamest stuff ever.  I am waiting for one of the channels to be of grass growing or paint drying.

Our Culture is changing and in many ways, I don’t think for the better.  Morality has taken a hit as our role models now often spend time behind bars for beating their wives or some other criminal offense.

I could go on and write a complete book about narcissist and sycophants but that is outside the scope of this blog post.  If you want a role model, my friends, look into the mirror and become that which you seek!

Years ago I was on a cruise to Alaska and we parked by one of the glaciers watching it melt.  Yes, if it were not just a glorious day to be outside on the balcony watching ice melt, I would have been pissed.  Finally a large chunk of ice “calved” and that was the highlight of the afternoon.  The massive ship rocked as the ripple from the tons of ice falling into the abyss reached out to us.  Feeling the effect of the displacement of so much water, made the time spent stationary that afternoon, and subsequent sunburn, more tolerable.

Don’t misunderstand me, you must do things in life, especially if you are a writer.  You must travel.  You must speak with people of all walks of life.  I make it a point to learn people’s names and something about them wherever I go.  People are what make life worth it to me.  You are interesting.  Sitting in front of the TV like so many do, getting spoon fed someone’s idea of what is morally acceptable changes the entire audience over time.

The Stepford wives come to mind as so many people around the globe watch things produced in Hollywood.  Our values or Hollywood’s values reach far and wide.

In Saga of the Starduster, I have my aliens tune into our TV to see what they are about to deal with.  Finding Sharknado on the screen, their first impressions are that the sharks are the apex life forms, and humans are their prey.   Not too far from reality except these sharks travel by manipulating vortices and attack bipedal creatures who have chainsaws mounted on their appendages.

When the Ularins tune across a football game, my aliens think that this is some sort of war and the football must be explosive.

If Aliens were listening to our radio and watching our Hollywood version of life, what would they think?

“How do I manage to write so much?”

I try not to waste time, and I scheduled several hours a day to either write or market my books.  Having said that I also look for opportunities to go out into the world and be part of it.  Watching it through the eyes of some Hollywood producer is not the way I care to figure out who we are as a people and why we are the way that we are.

Time management is key to life in general, not just creating your first or twenty-first novel.  Make time for what you are passionate about.  If that is writing, don’t let a good idea get lost in the shuffle of the noise in our lives.

You Mom’s and want to be authors, don’t allow your dreams to get cast aside.  God invented Bed Times so parents can still live a life. Enforce them while killing the internet and other things that might keep the urchins up and in your face.  We had quite times an hour before bedtime which meant they could read.  Lights out was strictly enforced. Not only so they got enough sleep, but so we could still have some modicum of life.  Phones are taken away at dinner time, and bedtime.  There is no excuse to allow a child to take an active screen to bed with them. Like us, they need their sleep.

Laptops and writing worked just as well as reading for me as an author.  Just saying.

Shameless plug for my work.

While many of you are downloading my books, I need many more to follow me here, and on Twitter.  I spent way too much time working on my novels and not enough time marketing them.  I just knew that once my first book was published, it would sell millions and I would be able to stop the day job.  HA!

The sales are enough to give me hope, but not near enough even to let me think about chucking the day job.  I have some great ideas that are waiting to come out on paper!  Share my work, follow me and tell your friends.   Thanks for the follows and of course the purchases!

Much Love–TW

Safe Place

 

Greetings!

If you landed here from Twitter; thanks so much for following the link.

As a writer, we often don’t have all the answers for marketing our products.  One of them that I will share now with you is the successful use of Social media.  Many have created a business out of retweeting your books for money.  If a robot re-tweets your book, who is going to see it?

The bottom line is you have no idea.  People follow you when you have something interesting to say.  I don’t follow robots, do you?

As far as the blog is concerned, I do go out of my way to have something on here for you to read and consume.

Marketing is important if you want to show folks what you have been working on, so at least they can take a peek and see if it might make a nice weekend read.  This blog is not for pecuniary interests per say, but it does, however, sell books for me.

If you are an author or writer, I would love for you to follow me and by all means, stop by and say hello.  I try to take the time to visit your blogs as time permits.  Not a young person who is looking to hook up nor am I an old person looking for some encounter of the dissolute kind.  Just a writer and author, looking for like minds to share ideas with.  A safe space if you will.

I realize that the words SAFE Space has received a negative connotation.  I can assure you that is not the case here.  I love a healthy debate, and I will challenge you if you are like me and don’t want smoke blown up your bottom.  “I can handle the truth.”  Can you?

The simple truth is, to be better at what we are doing we must accept the truth or forever languish in mediocracy.

If you want to help me and don’t want to spend money, go and read my stuff on Amazon Kindle Unlimited and tell me what you think.  If you have an account here as most serious writers do, it cost you nothing, and you will be entertained.

I have 25 Novels selling around the world and am working on #26.  The story is unfolding, and I am taking notes.  This story, unlike past stories, has a plot unfolding during the day and night, and I make notes of them.  I have yet to write more than two chapters, but I already know how the story starts and what the issues will be.  This story will be developed, unlike anything that I have done in the past.  Wish me luck!

Follow me here on this blog, and by all means, let’s connect.  Tell me what you are up to.

 

On Twitter, you can follow me @authortwscott or @twscott823.com.

My website which already needs more work is www.authortwscott.com

If you know of an agent that is not too proud to take on an independent author, send he or she my way would you?  I would love to leave the marketing to the experts, and just write stories.

 

Much Love!  TW

Dragon Master and the Witch

Yeah!  It is finished!

This story took longer than anticipated.  Six weeks give or take with several edits to get it right.

A week of that time I was traveling so, I guess 5 weeks to write a book.  I like to wrap one up in a month.

During the late 1200’s Blaise, the Dragon master is banished to the top of Mount Sherman by the Queen for a disagreement that the Queen and his father got into.

Blaise took the time to train his dragons and learn from his father.  After his father dies, Blaise becomes the Dragon Master.

Sarah and Blaise were set to be married until the falling out.  She would often sneak out of the castle to meet up with Blaise until one day she was captured by another who sought to control the dragons.

Removing her from the dark ages of England to 2017 in the United States, Sarah hardly fit in.  Unaware of where she was or what the place was famous for, the portal through which they traveled had its own plan, taking them near Salem Massachusetts.

Blake, the Son of the evil sorcerer, was in love with the Queen ’s other daughter; Katherine. When Blakes mother died suddenly, Zolof placed the blame on the villagers.  The anger that ensued was all that Zolof needed to turn the heart of his son dark; thus controlling him to do his bidding with a spell.

While Sarah attempts to put together a Coven of 13 in 2017, Zolof needs to lure Blaise through the portal where his powers would be useless allowing Zolof the opportunity to kill him.  Once Blaise dies, Zolof would inherit the loyalty of the dragons giving him all the power he would need to bring the world to its knees.

What we have here is a love story in the classic sense.  We have a fairy tale where my sense of humor and wit come through in my characters.

The artwork is a combination of a painting I did years ago and some digital art to make a rather impressive cover.

This is my 25th Novel, and I believe a milestone.

Currently, my work is selling around the globe on more servers than I can count.  I have to trust that I am being paid for my work but truthfully, I have seen my works pirated on sites that I do not even have a clue of what the language is.  If it is good enough to pirate, I guess I should take it as a compliment.

Amazon should release this book in a day or so.  I published it on Smashwords too.  Smashwords, while a pain to publish on, does send it to many different sites including B&N, Apple, and too many others to mention.

Once a month I get royalties from them via PayPal, so there are good things about them as well.

The link for Smashwords I will put here, so you can get your copy and tell me what you think!

We, independent Authors, appreciate you the readers of our work.

We don’t have multi-million dollar publishing companies hyping our Books.  We, the independent must write it, edit it, create the art work and market it! To get it in your hands, Amazon and other companies like them provide a website to sell it on and take as much, if not more than an agent would charge.

Agents provide the technical services as well as the marketing! Agents hire editors who not only look for typos but know how to guide the author in ways that would make the story more palatable.

Dangling participles aside, a good editor is hard to find.  Many on Twitter will offer their services, but I must tell you the truth of this.  An independent writer cannot afford $10 a page.

The hard truth is that most “independent writers” will think their work is great and be willing to spend the money betting on the ROI. The facts are that few will make over $10 in royalties in their first year.  If that hurts, I am truly sorry but it is the bitter truth.  Don’t write for pecuniary interests. Don’t play the lottery for a retirement strategy. Keep your day job!

Another service people offer is cover art design.

And still another is marketing, and the list goes on.

The only folks who make money in this business are those who provide some sort of service, with no guarantees.

That is why readers like yourself are so important for the independent author.

Folks, we need you!  I support independent authors, and I know most of you do as well.

With 25 novels selling around the globe, one day you will be able to say, “you knew me when!”

“Yes, I have made much more than $10…”  The truth of it is that I would do it all over again if I were to only make $10.  I love what I write so at the very least, there are 25 novels out there with the Brand TWScott that people are enjoying. That means something.

Buy my books.  Not one of them cost more than a cup of fancy coffee!

Many are on Amazon Kindle Unlimited so you can read them for free!

Those that have read my novels to date; tell me that they like them; so I am on to something. Some of the feedback on Cyber Subs had me go back and change much of it.

I am always looking for an idea for the next novel.

I wrote a story about a couple of young ladies who do web cam shows for money.  Tonight on the news I learned about a young mother who poses nude on Instagram making about $5K a month.  If you like a little titillation, read that book called Cyber Subs!

The interesting thing about this woman is she is no model.  She is a mother and married to someone in the military who takes the photos of her.  One of my themes in many of my books is about loving who you are.  I would not mind interviewing her as I think that might make a story too.

Thanks for the purchases of my books!

Thanks for the follows and retweets!

If you are an agent or know of one that is not too proud to support an independent author such as myself; I could use the help!

I am a writer; that is what I do.

Marketing, I would rather leave to the professionals.

I spent years working in an advertising agency, and I would still rather write, than market.

Much Love -TW
