Fool's Gold Cover

Fool’s Gold available for purchase!

Well, folks, it’s up! Stunningly I’ve already had one sale at Smashwords, and that was without any advertising at all. So if you’re up for a sexy, mysterious, and a touch contemplative pirate tale, here it is, Fool’s Gold.

Blurb: When Anne Delahaye, captain of the pirate ship the Merriment, is lead to a chest of coins with unusual markings, she assumes that she’s been cheated. But when she learns that the coins may be the key to a strange cave where desires become reality, she goes to find out for herself. What she finds there brings up memories and desires of a life she thought was gone…an erotic short story of pirates, treasure, and memories lost and found.

Experiments in self-publishing

On this writing break (which I, er, cough, haven’t quite managed to make a pure break, as I did do a wee bit of writing over the weekend – bad Jacqui…) part of the idea was to have a think about how I was getting my writing out in the world. So I thought I’d give the self-publishing thing a shot. Though first, an important query – what do people think of the cover? Be honest – if you think it doesn’t work let me know (would rather know that now before heading over and uploading to Smashwords and Amazon), and am always happy to hear suggestions.

Reviews of Erotica Apocrypha

The anthology has been attracting some notice, which is lovely. So far, the following reviews have been posted. Very encouraging!

Review by Kitty StrykerThe desires in “Erotica Apocrypha” are both primal and divine, and they will captivate and enchant you. But beware when the gods come to seduce you… you may not get out alive.

Review by LJ LaBarthe – LJ reviews each story individually, but of mine she writes: I am so glad to see this here. This is Perun and Veles and their ongoing struggle. Beautifully written and very hot.
