Schadenfreude already Selling after release today Thanks!

Lacy’s new boyfriend makes Christian Grey look like a choirboy. Can we truly love a bad guy? See for yourself!

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.

customer-experience-3024488_960_720

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

Coming soon to a book store near you!

When a small town girl hooks up with the most dangerous man in the world, the story gets intense.

Last night I allowed Stephen Hawking to read my latest novel to me.

Don’t buy that?

Yeah, he is dead, but his spirit can still be here cant it?

Ok, you got me, my MacBook, which I had to get so I could use Vellum, does a bang-up job of reading my novels back to me one chapter at a time.  Why on God’s green earth would I do that?

You, You’re, and Your are three reasons, and the list goes on.  Our minds know what we wrote, and our eyes will gloss over the mess-ups much like those stupid little things on Facebook, that says if you can read this you’re a genius.  PFFT! Anyone can read them!

Stephen or the apple will not gloss over the clumsy sentence or suit vs. suite or breath vs breathe.  If it does not sound right, stop and edit.

 

I use three methods of editing, at least three.

Word, as I am writing.

Pro writing aid, although I must tell you it is prone to screwing up and Grammarly.

As I am putting the manuscript into Vellum if you want the chapter, titles to be something other than Chapter 1, etc you need to edit them.  That is what I do.  Pick a chapter, write the name and then let ol’e Stephen read my chapters to me.

Please don’t mistake my mocking of his animated voice as anything other than humor.  Truth told that is one person that I would love to have met.  I have all of his books and have absorbed them, as he was genuinely brilliant.  He is also a bit of a hero if you think about it.  How many of us would just lay down, roll over and die, if that were us?

Anyway, I tease, but that is all it is.  No disrespect meant, implied, or even thought of remotely.

So what about my latest novel?

Ok, if you like Beauty and the Beast, you will love this story.

If you liked House of Cards, you would love this story.

If you like Christian Gray, you will Effing love this story!

Let’s see if you like Romeo and Juliet…you will love this story!

If you are an agent and not contacting me…you are messing up.  I am close to self-publishing as I genuinely despise the query letter process.  It sucks… “if you never hear from us consider it a pass…PFFFT!”

I know that Bezos and Corker will make the brunt of the money, but at least it will get out there, and you the readers will get to give me some feedback.  With all of these novels, I must be getting close to hitting a home run.  Damn a sports analogy!

This story will have you laughing, crying, ‘horny’ guy or girl… and if you are one of the cam girls I write about, ladies…buy this book and read it. I just about have step-by-step instructions in there on how to make money being a cyber porn star.   My eyes!  I think I am going blind from researching this subject.

MFC yes My Free Cams should make this novel required reading!

One of my twitter followers, bless her heart, had on her bio, Cyber Slut!  Darling thank you for posting that because I am here to tell you, had I not followed your link, I would never have known any of this existed.

During my research, I discovered there are multiple sites like this, all with a thousand ‘models” or more on each, trying to make it as a ‘model.’

Darlings I am not judging you one bit. At least learn how to do what you are doing, so you make money for your efforts…Yes…I have some detailed instructions as my ladies try to figure out how to entice girls to prostitute themselves out in such a way to come to the island.

“Come to the island…Can’t you just hear some big man with a Jamaican accent inviting you to ‘the island?”

Cannot say this in my book but, here on the blog I can say ‘there is no short guy saying ‘the plane the plane!”

I made a few changes to the cover art, which if some Agent should find they will probably get a professional to do it but, for now this is what it will most likely look like.

Still reading?

Want the pitch?

Go to my website www.authortwscott.com find the contact page and come say ‘hello.”

For the rest of you…Thanks for the follows.  I honestly do appreciate it when you hit that subscribe button. Some of you take the time to comment, and I love that too.

Much Love  -TW

 

 

Orgy Island or Bust?

When a small-town girl leaves the farm in Iowa, for Tampa, the move changes forever her life.  Recruited by one of her professors for an escort service in Miami; things go horribly wrong when she finds herself on a yacht with men who have very twisted desires.

From the perverse world of cyber-porn to recruiting other girls for an island designed for the world’s most influential people’s demented pleasures, Lacy learns the ins and outs of the industry.

Dating, the worlds most notorious kingpin, she is suddenly in great danger from those seeking to capture him for the reward.  Body counts pile up as different factions try to shut the island down by any means possible.

 

I admit it! I am an opportunist.

Years ago, one of the worst-kept secrets in history made itself known to me.  An island paradise for rich folks to have their way with willing participants.

There is the Bunny Ranch, and I am sure other places where ladies can hock their wares, legally to people who either like variety in their life or, can’t get a lady any other way than with money.

The idea rattled around in my brain for years, thinking it would make an exciting read.

When Epstein was arrested not too long ago, I did not understand the severity of his crimes.  If you follow my tweets, you know I stopped watching the news as it totally kills my creative ability.  Alexa flashes current events up, and occasionally, I have her play the story.

I began crafting a story about ‘Orgy Island.’  This novel would be called ‘Orgy Island’ as I could find no book with that name already.

Listening to the news in the car, someone referred to it as Orgy Island; hence, the name will not be that. DOH!

Still, the story took on a life of its own.  In three short weeks from the time they arrested him until today, I have the first draft of over 70K words of a novel that will keep one turning the pages. The circumstances of his death rate a book of their own.

So, here is the deal.  I will tweet about this novel, pointing the readers of said tweets here to this blog.  This book is timely, it’s exciting, and it will sell. In my tweets, I will hashtag #Agents.  Not going to spend my days and nights crafting query letters at four hours each. 

Maybe I will query one…  Is it worth four hours of my time?

Authors, how do you feel about the Query process?  Don’t you just love it when they say something like “if you never hear from us, consider it a pass?” What is your time worth?  Would the favor of a reply be too much to ask?  I am certain I speak for many who go through this process.  If you see that the author has gone through the trouble to dot every I, and cross every T, and ‘do it your way,”  Is it too much to ask for a response?

Agents, if you have read this far, I would suggest you contact me via the blog or my website at www. athortwscott.com

The early bird gets the worm! Ladies and gentleman, this is your chance.

I have created the story; I have created the cover art.  Now I need to go back through the novel and edit it for consistency, and all of those beautiful commas.  I still want to play with the cover art a little more. I am not thrilled with the lady I drew.  The cover art is a concept.

Not in love with the cover art, and I will happily edit as necessary.  Can you sell this?

Contact me before I finish the process, and we can talk.  Snooze, I will self-publish, as this novel is timely, and it will garner the interest of many.

“Will TW be your discovery?”

With over 30 novels selling worldwide so far Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, and many others seem to be the winners.  Is this one going to get away from you?

The difference between my novel and reality is, I cannot bring myself to write about the sickness of this person, who I just recently learned brought in girls as young as twelve, for these demented people to rape.  That to me; is beyond repugnant!

What this novel is about is how someone would do something like this island, using consenting adults as the product.

Years ago, one of my twitter followers in her bio said she was a ‘cyber-slut.’

“Huh? What the hell is that?”  For someone who writes racy novels, I tell you, the underbelly of the internet is ‘pretty far out there.’  I did not understand what she was talking about until I clicked on her link.

The novel ‘CyberSubs’ was born and created in a month.  I am sure it could use editing again now that I have much better software.

This novel blends the world of internet porn and escort services and how one might recruit young ladies for such a project.  It is a story, fiction and yes there are bad boys and rich people, drugs, and murder!

There is also lots of advice for the cam show girls out there.  Yes, there was hours of research and talking with people.  I knew of only one site like this. Research on this subject showed a depressing number of these sites, each with over a 1000 ‘models’ flaunting themselves on open camera, without so much as an ‘if you are under 18 go away.’

I seriously wonder what this will do to the children who stumble across this mess.  We have this Me2 movement, and there are over ten thousand girls around the globe, nude with toys in places the sun does not shine.  The number very possible is closer to twenty thousand with some sites allowing men to model.  There are also Trans and other folks putting on cam what one might only imagine might happen in the secrecy of their homes.

Great fodder for novels, bad stuff for the kids, who are naturally curious.  What must they think? What does this kind of thing do to an immature mind?  Are we adding to the mental illnesses of the world?

Follow me here if you want to be the first to read my latest novel.  This will be like novel #35 or #36.

Wish me luck as I try to lure an agent into my lair.  Or, stand by and be ready for a new read that will keep you turning the pages!

I would like to get it out there quickly as the timing of the release is paramount while the interests in such things are there, thanks to the conspiracy around his death.  We could probably come up with a novel on that…Hell, we might even find Hoffa.

Much love -TW

 

 

 

WebCam Shows

Would you pose nude on a cam show for hundreds of men?

One of my twitter followers had a bio of Web Cam Slut.  She then had an advertisement for herself on MyFreeCams.

From time to time I actually look at some of my follower’s bio’s, and I must tell you I was blown away.

If you go to this site, there will be around one thousand ladies online at any given time.

This was excellent fodder for Cyber Subs which is an entirely made up story on my part.

Here is the truth of it though.

Think about this for a second.

At a certain time of the day, you are going to allocate X hours to entertain whoever you can via a site like this.

Thirty minutes till that time you go take a shower and put on some sort of costume that will include sexy underclothes.  You fix your hair and makeup and then make things really sexy.  I like the thong under the sexy panties routine personally.  A little more to tease folks with.

You have been advertising through social media that you will indeed be on at a particular time.

Shutting off the phone and locking yourself into your studio you bring up the site.  You place the camera accordingly.  You even have the professional studio lights that cast the right amount of light to enhance your ….assets….

Among the rest of the accouterments, you have your Hitachi charged and ready for action.

You place certain toys to taunt your audience within reach, and of course, you have a goal in mind.  Your goal is stated in such a way that you make it your audience’s goal.

The time you planned to start is now. You flip on your camera and wait for your regulars to show.

If you have worked your act up, your followers will be waiting for you.

Selling peeks at certain parts of your body for tips the bell rings, and now you must come through for them. Flashing a breast or something else starts the ball rolling.  Teasing the regulars who find you irresistible are most probably taking matters in hand, while others get things going.

Someone from somewhere decides that your bottom is just so sweet that it needs some color.

Paying the tips needed for some spanks you must now follow through.

In my book Cyber Subs, I have the two girls working the crowd punishing one another; among other things.

While the story wrote itself, I wonder if the ladies that do this get anything out of it other than money.

It is modern day prostitution without the fear of getting some disease.

This novel has been downloaded so many times it is evident that people are obsessed with erotic novels such as this. Unlike 50 Shades, you could actually become a model on one of these sites.  The 50 Shades fantasy requires a misogynistic billionaire who is “fifty shades fucked up.”

Webcam shows just require an internet connection, camera, and some guts!

Think about that for a second.

There are all types of women on there.  Yes, I was curious, and I looked.

As an artist, I love the human body either man or woman.

Is there such a site for male models?

Some young ladies appear almost anorexic and then there are some who have apparently never missed a meal.  Not judging, just making a point.  Your body type is not a show stopper.  There was one lady on there that was so pregnant one had to wonder if she was planning on giving birth on cam for tips!

Where are we as a society?

We are tethered to our smart phones and tablets.

We spend more time on social media than we do with our friends.

We spend time berating those who breast feed in public and then look for sites like this to watch women masturbate.

I for one agree with the Free The Nipple people.

Breasts on some men look as though they might belong to a woman.  Scout Willis is pioneering this effort, and my hat is off to her.

The dichotomy that exists is this.  Some women are horrified that men find women sexually attractive and thus feel objectified as a sex object. Thousands of women model on these sites and are doing what?

They are attracting the worst part of the male species and extorting money from them while debasing the feminine argument of being objectified.

Not all men will seek such sites.  Not all women will approve of such actions.

Here is the truth of it though.

Some of these ladies are doing this to be told how pretty they are.

Some of them are so starved for attention that being naked on cam is one way to get someone to tell them how much they like them.

Conversely, some men are real losers.

In my book, I refer to them as Billie’s  “Read the book to find out why. You will like it!

The truth of it however is, that man is driven by visual stimulation and women by emotional stimulation.

If you want to attract a guy let’s face it, you need to look like a ten.

Guys, if you want to attract a gal, you also need to be well manicured, and that means no beer belly. You must also be emotionally there, and supportive.

People look for visual clues when hunting a mate.  Symmetry starts the process.  We are genetically programmed for such things.  That is why sex sells.  PR firms know how to manipulate the masses and they do it perfectly.

When looking for a possible mate some programming instilled in us comes to life.  Those ladies on sites such as this are capitalizing on genetic programming.

When people mature they realize that there is more to life than looks.

That is why some of the ladies on these sites are there.  They know that some men are also not tens but require that connection even if it is through PM’s and a video or two from some cum show.  Yes, I said it, that is one of the things that they sell.

When I read certain novels I fall in love with the characters without ever seeing them. Who I am actually falling in love with is the writer who created them as those characters represent some small part of their creator.

If you want to get to know someone read their books.

Writing about the underbelly of the internet, was an eye opener for me as a writer. Placing myself in the roles of Denise or Trisha and then working through the parts that I just laid out was rather interesting.  The only way I could have done a better job of it would be to get on cam… Not going to happen…

No, I have never been on cam but, I must admit the thought of it was titillating.  Can you imagine yourself seductively removing your clothing for hundreds of people?  Some of the ladies have several hundred viewers watching their every move.

Take a look at Cyber Subs and tell me what you think.

“If you are one of my twitter followers and you are also on one of these sites, tell me… how close did I call it?”

Before I end this post, let me repeat that I am NOT judging anyone.  We all have our skeletons in the closet, and not one of us is perfect.

I just finished Dragon Master and the Witch, and I am looking for an idea for the next Novel.  Go check it out and support an independent author …Me…

If you were going to read something, what kind of book would you be looking for?

If I use your idea, I will mention you in the acknowledgment section of the next book!

If you are an author or writer that might mean something to you.  With 25 novels selling around the world, it is only a matter of time before one of them goes viral.  That is my hope anyway.

Is Pornography a bad thing?

When you cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, you are in trouble. 

I have become confused over the years as many things are now lumped together or synonymous with the word “porn.”

  • Food Porn
  • Library Porn
  • And of course erotic porn.

If we can agree that pornography can be interpreted as an extreme of something, then we can continue on to the main topic.

In the sense that too much of anything is bad, we can quickly come to a consensus that porn in the sense of “too much,” is probably not good.

What I want to address however are the different kinds of erotic pornography.

Why do people look at or partake in porn in the first place?

Fantasy vs. reality.

In our daily lives, we live in our world of work, school or home life.  During our waking hours, we do what we must do to stay on task or to be on purpose for who or what we are.  Life can get pretty mundane.  Several days a week we get up and do our thing.  When we come home, we have another “thing” to do which is usually boring or at least mundane.  Many of us might read for an escape, or most will sit in front of the TV and live their lives vicariously through football or dancing with the stars or some reality tv show, where we become the star of the show.

How many lazy boy quarterbacks have you seen, or perhaps you are one.  We scream at the TV when a bad call is made, and we just don’t care that they cannot hear us.  Monday morning we visit with our cohorts and talk smack about the lousy calls and then reluctantly engage in our task of shuffling papers, or writing code or whatever it is that you do.  That is a reality.

Before the Internet, Pornography was relatively mild, somewhat limited to truck stops, bookstores or adult bookstores, and of course, the ever popular Playboy which I would argue was really not porn.  Hustler was porn and the first to show parts of the female anatomy that one could claim had nothing to do with artistic value.

Along came an easy way to exploit people through the internet.

“Yes women are objectified but let’s face it, unless they are forced to do it by some sex trafficker, they do it to themselves.”  The porn industry is huge.  Like drugs, there is a demand for it.  If there is a demand; no matter how illegal it becomes, there will be a source.

I wrote about marketing earlier, and sex sells. Why?  Why does sex sell?

If you go to the beach no matter your gender, look at the people who are attractive in your opinion.  Now try and take care to notice where your eyes go.  If you are a man most probably your eyes will immediately go to the parts of her body that are covered by cloth, and your brain will fill in the blanks.

If you are a woman and you see some man that interests you; if you are honest with yourself, after looking at his face or smile and abs, your eyes will check out the bulge in shorts, or his behind.

I write a lot about nudists in my books because people fascinate me.  If you are wearing a bikini, you will notice the looks from men and might have an urge to say “hey, my eyes are up here.”

The simple facts are that he or you are following your program. 

When a person sees someone that is sexually stimulating to them the reward center of the brain releases chemicals that start the process of procreation.

The whole process could take hours or months to complete but make no mistake, it is a chemically induced process.  When sex is involved, again, chemicals control the process from flirtation to pillow talk.  Orgasm releases feel-good chemistry in the brain as well as chemicals that shut off the desire for more sex in the man until he recharges.  Hence the stupor and sleep following sex.

Those chemicals or the reward of their release is what pushes us for some private time with the internet and some appliance, or at least a little digital exercise of the non-electronic kind if we are single.  I would argue that it is probably healthy and if not taken to an extreme, not a bad thing.

Realizing that we are designed for procreation now let’s go back to the pornography question.

Anyone on the internet of any age can get all the porn that they want.

Let that sink in for a moment.  Your five year old can stumble across it.

Young folks see this type of stuff and have no idea how to process it.  Once in puberty, they have the desire; it is built in.  Now they have many of the questions answered as they can watch all of it that they want.

Desire and mystery removed, now they just need a willing partner.  Will babies be made or diseases spread, probably!

Pornography is not real life.  Not many pizza men will ring you up looking to trade sex for pizza.  If they do it could be a whole new franchise opportunity.

Young folks have no idea about such things and get screwed up ideas about sex and how it works because of what they might see.

Sex for most of us comes with commitment and emotional investment.  Without it, you might as well date a corpse.

Morality is under attack by what we see in the world today, and few voices are saying, hold on there cowboy, that is not the way that it works.  With the family unit in disarray, too many teen parents are being made, and abortion is probably not the answer.

What about you and I, we are adults, is porn a good thing or a bad thing?

If you find yourself dating your Hitachi more than a real person, it is probably a bad thing.

The problem with porn is that it leads people to fantasize about certain things which are just crazy if you think about it.  In Denise and Trisha’s adventure, I write about rich people who pay these girls to perform acts on one another in front of a webcam to fulfill their fantasy’s.  They are Dom’s in every sense of the word, but since it is over the internet and the location and identity of each of them are hidden, they can live out their fantasy remotely.

I discovered the underbelly of the internet from one of my Twitter followers who is on a site called My Free Cams.  Checking out that site, the story wrote itself.  Over a thousand “models” at any given time are working their audience for tips.  They are providing a type of prostitution where no contact is made other than through the mouse or keyboard.

Since the writing of that book, I have learned of several other services that provide the same thing.  This means that there are thousands of young ladies out there making money from their bedroom’s entertaining people for tips.

“I am not judging them.”

If they are consenting adults and make an informed decision to do this, it is their choice.  These girls are also from many different countries.  I would love to crawl around in their heads to see what if anything they get out of it.  Is it titillating in some way?

My issue with this site and some like it is that anyone can log in and see whatever they are doing.  While they tell you if you are under 18 to go away, they are not exactly asking for id.  Are there girls on this or other sites who are being forced to do this?  Possibly. Could the models be under 18?  Good question…

Is porn a bad thing?

Porn is a thing, as my novels are a thing.  If you read Denise and Trisha’s adventure, I paint pictures in your head that could be pornography.  I am assured that my novel is not smutty but in a 50 Shades kind of way, it is certainly titillating.

I got a kick out of a couple that I know.  She was fussing at her husband for looking at too much Cinemax or internet porn while she read smutty books.  Holier than thou much?  It is the same damned thing!

I would argue that books like mine or 50 shades are better as your imagination will probably paint a better picture than some person who day in and day out has sex for a living.  That is why I have always felt the book version was better than the movie.

When you cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, you are in trouble.  These teachers who are sleeping with students have crossed the line, and one has to wonder what did they put into their heads?

Mental health will be the next big need in this country and probably others as we change the dynamics of who we are.

When I was speaking of nudist earlier, if you have ever tried it, the awkwardness is gone in seconds, and soon the genitalia or what have you is like a knee or elbow.  Most people look better with clothes on, and I think that is why fewer women are nudist.  Women more than men seem to care about what they look like and you get into this whole body shaming argument.  We come in all shapes and sizes, and there is a huge difference between pornography and nudity.  As an artist, I love the human form in all of its shapes and sizes.

I have this vivid memory of a man on a beach wearing a speedo.  Speedos’ in the states are out of style and have been.  The man himself had a scar from his neck, down around his belly button into his speedo and down one leg.  He must have weighed easily 350 pounds.  I smiled when I saw him and thought, “good for you!”

He survived some rather traumatic surgery or had one hell of a birthmark, and he felt sexy in that speedo.  Who am I to judge him for how he is dressed.  That speedo helped him to feel better about himself, and he might very easily be a super nice guy!

I must say that there is a time and a place for all things under heaven.  If that sounds blasphemous, I will caution you to judge not.  He knew you before you were formed and knew everything that you would ever do and created you anyway.  That is my story, and I am sticking to it.

Currently, I am working on a book about witches, warlocks, dragons, and pirates!  Twelve thousand words into it and I am loving it.  Taking a break to write about this subject was important.  One of my readers asked what I thought about pornography.  Now you know!
