I began the stories in the summer of 2011, thinking it was going to be a one-story deal.  After reading the number of comments on the first story, I forged ahead with the sequels that were written simultaneously.  I got stuck on the third installment, I finally finished in time for 2012 to go away and bring in 2013.  I kept it current in all three, with extreme heat, a freak snowstorm, and the Diamond Jubilee celebration with the mention of the Summer Olympics. 

I am working hard on the eBook version of the trilogy, with the hopes to have it out before June 2013.  The newest installment of Watch Me Wednesday snippets will commence January 9. 

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Love,
Sylvia

Rewrites, Rejections, and Advertising

I posted part three to Roommates with Benefits on Lush Stories last week, and it got rejected.  I guess the person that read it didn't appreciate that I employed allusion and implied what happened before the trip to London.   I switched what was wrong, and now I'm waiting for my friend to email me the last of the necessary edits. 

I began rewriting an old story I have posted onto Smashwords.  I'm adding a few things that was missing since I was in such a haste to get it published.  It would increase my sales a bit more, especially when I have an excerpt for my next eBook inside.

I decided to make author pages on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and to other outlets. I want to increase sales of my eBooks.   I guess I have to  make a real author page and post the option to buy my eBooks.  I eventually would like to write eBooks under my real name as well.  I want to host an event with the release of my books relatively soon. I have to get my marketing strategy down pact, first.

Watch Me Wednesday Teaser #5

Here's an excerpt from the third installment of "Roommates with Benefits" called The Working Vacation.  Enjoy!



I got to the floor I’m staying on and saw Dante and Jayson at the door, waiting for me. I asked them, “What brings the two of you to my room?”
            “Watching you flirt with all of those foreign men,” Jayson replied in a licentious tone.
            “You wearing that little shift dress didn’t make it any easier on us,” remarked Dante.
            “Oh yeah, Dante? Did you like it when I made out with the Italian guy?”
            “Yes I did, sugar.”
            I know both Dante and Jayson want to get inside my panties, so I decided to let the sexpot come out of me. After all, they both just want to get laid before going back to their significant others. Who cares if they’re here with their wives? I just want to get laid before heading back to the States, as do the men.
            “Dante, please tell me more. I want to know all of your thoughts,” I coo, feeling Dante’s growing bulge.
            I opened the door and allowed the men to come inside of my room. Jayson took a seat on the bed as I stood in front of Dante. Taking me into his arms, Dante kissed me and my panties got wet immediately.  Not wanting to be left out, Jayson stroked my stocking-encased legs, trying to get me to open them up.  He opted to unzip me, allowing my flowing dress to cascade to the floor.  While I made out with Dante, Jayson unhooked my strapless bra, allowing for my breasts to breathe.

That's it for now. The full-length version of the eBook is in the works right now.  See you all next week!

Love,
Sylvia.
