Tuesday 10: Ten Pros & Cons Of Self Publishing

tuesday 10

This week the Tuesday 10 is all about the pros and cons of self-publishing. I’ve listed five of each. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

1. You control price and cover
2. Publication is almost instant
3. Easy to implement changes
4. Without a publisher serving as a middle man, you get to keep all the profits
5. Retaining complete creative control of the project

1. You’re responsible for professional editing, formatting, and cover art
2. Greater potential to publish substandard books
3. All the upfront costs and financial risk belong to the author
4. If you publish in print, it’s almost impossible to get copies in book stores
5. You’re on your own with legal matters if you should be unfortunate enough to have your work pirated or plagiarized

In Search Of Erotic Horror Stories…

hwn1001035Hi Guys! I don’t know about you all, but the Halloween spirit is hitting me early this year. I’m in search of some great erotic horror stories, but I’m having a little trouble finding the kind of stories I want to read.

I’m not looking for paranormal romance or torture porn, but stories more like the ones in the old Hot Blood anthology books. Anyone remember those?

So anyway, if you’ve read any erotic horror you enjoyed and wouldn’t mind taking them time to share the title and author in a comment below, I’d love to hear about them. Also, if you’re the author of such a story, please feel free to share a little about your story as well. The more the merrier.
