Well, I think #6 in Amazons Best Selling Romantic Comedy on release day is pretty darn impressive. I am completely blown away and stoked with that and THANK YOU to everyone who raced out and one-clicked that sucker. As far as blog tours go, Bookslapped nailed it, they always do! Jess and Rach, I adore you girls to the moon and back --- thank you so much for all your hard work, support and friendship. To all the other bloggers who promoted Decker’s release, Geez, no words. You guys are so damn awesome, I appreciate everything you do to help us Indie and Traditional authors alike.
Now, to say my social media has filled to capacity and pretty much exploded would be an understatement. I have spent the past 24 hours in front of my computer in an attempt to keep up and I have tried to respond to each and every one of you personally. If I missed someone, I am so darn sorry! But my brain and speedy typing fingers are running on coffee and Coke Zero fumes right now.
Questions have arisen which apparently need addressing, and as the questions are all the same, I figure a big warm, cosy group blog is the way to go.
#1 – Are porn stars really like this? Okay, as most of you know, I did in fact research porn, thoroughly *wink*. My research not only consisted of watching, but in fact talking to adult film stars. One female porn star confessed to me that a large majority of porn stars are somewhat emotionally stunted and lacking in the relationship department. However, there are also a many actors in the world of adult film who are married and romantically involved with a significant other, and their relationships for the most part are normal. Mind you, what’s normal? Even though there are strict on set health and safety regulations, many adult film stars encounter STD’s, drugs and abuse. That aspect of porn is very much real.
#2 – Will Decker be available in paperback? YES YES YES. It should be available in the next month!
#3 - Would you like to provide me with a signed paperback for an honest review? I'm so sorry, but the cost involved with posting books internationally is crushing! I am more than happy to provide bloggers with electronic copies of any of my books for review. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in this.
#4 – Will there be more porn star comedy? This I cannot answer with a definite YES or NO. What I can tell you is I have been playing around with the idea of 2 more books and turning Decker’s Wood into a Porn Star Trilogy Set! I am not an author who will grab a good thing and milk it to death, so even though Decker’s Wood has had an amazing reception, it will take a darn good and original story line to convince me to actually proceed with this trilogy concept. I don’t want to drag the same ol’, same ol’ from Decker’s Wood into any future books. They will need to stand proudly on their own while still complementing the original book. What I can tell you, is if I do move forward with more books, Casey and Lionel will most definitely feature in them, because heck, they freaking rock! Andi and Decker WILL NOT. Their story is done and dusted, but there most certainly are porn stars who we could all get to know a little better. What I can say for certain is there will definitely be more Romantic Comedy in the future. Apparently sarcasm and laughter is in my blood.
In the next couple of weeks there will be some swag and clothing available for purchase. I will let you know via social media as soon as it is available.
Thanks for all the love and kind words! There is nothing like positive feedback to keep the creative juices flowing. (Decker would have jumped all over that juices remark)
