The Cartel looking into The DiamonD

 

Just recently I received an email from a cable network TV/Movie Production company requesting my full pitch of The DiamonD, and what makes this announcement special is that I didn`t pitch it to them; they came looking for me. . .and I am Genuinely Honored and will continue to remain honored even it nothing transpires.  All I can say is “Thank You“ and keep my fingers crossed and hope that one day – in the not so distant future – The DiamonD will get its break!

 

 

the Pros & a Con of Selling My Own eBooks

I’m taking this brief time-out not to talk about my books – which is funny since I really don`t talk about my books all that much to begin with (hence, my posts) – but just a little something to say “Thank You” to the Buyers who took the plunge, from Amazon and other online ebook retailers, into my site to purchase your ebook(s) despite the hesitancy and the skepticism you may have felt since many (Indie) Authors rarely, or if not, sell their own ebooks direct from their site.

So, again … 

First the Pros:

I won`t sugar coat it and say it has been a real success but it`s been a success never-the-less; meaning, I`ve managed to sustain repeat Buyers, garnish new Buyers, receive great feedback with very little – miniscule, actually – to zero technical issues with it either being an issue of downloading/locating a book or app reader related, and recently, a refund request as the Buyer was under the impression that they had bought a physical copy of the book and not the ebook itself, so other than that, it`s been crickets in that department.

So far I`ve been content with the decision I made to sell from my site as it allows me total control over my books:  if I make changes, I don`t have to wait days for those changes to take effect or if I decide to offer FREE ebooks, I don`t have to compete with time frames so the flexibility is there; AND I don`t have to worry about my books getting banned or blocked because I failed to adhere to rules and guidelines or because it offends – my books are what they are, and if someone doesn`t like them well then tough shit!  Don`t buy!  It`s that simple!

Now the Con:

Because the transition of purchasing ebooks direct from my site is still fairly new (since 1/2018) it`s just a matter of time before everyone catches on.  Things take time with a multiple of convincing, but of course!

Thanks for reading & for your open-mind.

crucial update on `DiamonD, The Trilogy Books`

 

As of today, September 5th, 2018, DiamonD, DiamonDs and the DiamonD will no longer be available on other eBook Selling Platforms – except for DiamonD, The Trilogy as it will remain available for a limited time – as they will be exclusively Sold via HUSH`s Site (or until I get a wild hair up my ass and decide to put them back up!)

And as of today, September 5th, 2018, DiamonD, DiamonDs and the DiamonD have all been re-named with the following titles:  DiamonD chapter one.  DiamonDs:  chapter two.  And the DiamonD:  chapter three, and will no longer house under DiamonD, The Trilogy but The DiamonD Chapters.

    

The reason for the title changes have been a long time coming, as well as, one of them past “What if?“ moments (eventually realized) about having taken Jane – who prostituted under the name “Diamond“ in The HUSH Series – beyond HUSH, and thus far, the chapters and saga have proven worthy and are being enjoyed by thousands of Fans and Readers with many claiming:  Can`t Put the Book(s) Down!

Until then, thanks for stopping in and reading!

The DiamonD Saga making a Pitch into Hollywood-TV-Land

 

Yes. . .it is official that I finally got off my pretty ass – and I quote Julia Roberts` character Erin Brockovich:  “Since I have one ass instead of two“– and made the Pitch into Hollywood-TV-Land with my entire HUSH Series but generally focusing on The DiamonD Saga, and so far it`s been a journey “Synopsis-wise“.

 

All-in-all, I think it was the stress of fitting 10 books and 1 companion book into the required, or more-less, suggested 3 pages that was quite the challenge but I did it AND that’s with The Pitch, Teaser & additional info included.

 

So now that I`m done with that, it`s on to finishing the 5th volume in HUSH Novelettes and starting the 6th and working toward the ending of The DiamonD:  VEGAS.

 

If you`d like to view my Hollywood Pitch click THIS.  And because a Synopsis – be it in lit, TV & film – require an ending disclosure to whatever is being pitched, I have omitted to avoid spoilers.  Sorry!  But to get a further sneak peek, you can view The DiamonD Saga [ TV Bible Pitch ] HERE to get a general visual if it were to become a TV Series but my better guess would be Cable due to the graphic nature, sex, and tabooed theme scenes as well as the language and everything else in between.

In closing, I will wish myself LUCK , and if you`d like to send some my way, that would be much appreciated!

HUSH: Why Pay Over a $1,000 When You Can Pay $50?

HUSH and its Series have come a long way, and never had I thought my books would be worth anything – according to all the negative reviews the series has garnished over the last five years – until I recently learned that The HUSH Series is currently being sold for over $1,100.

Q:  So, should I now consider this a bragging right?

A:  Hell yeah!

But seriously. . .who would pay a $1,000 for a book?  Not me. . .unless it`s rare and a collectible and I knew I`d make back the money further down the road.  I mean, would Jackie Collin’s first ever print book The World is Full of Married Men with original jacket of Author – to which I own, btw – qualify?

 

So, HUSH fans if you`re interested in buying a print copy of The HUSH Series and don`t care to pay a grand but rather $50 with an Autograph, then you`re more than welcome to contact me @ AboutHUSH@outlook.com. 

“HUSH in The Dark“ volume 1

Aside from writing, I do dabble in poetry – poetry which have been published in over fifty online rag`mags or poetry journals – so it was only natural that I pen poems based on The HUSH Series.

HUSH in The Dark is a 2 book volume of over thirty-five poems based/and or situated around The HUSH Series.HUSH_ In The Dark volume 1

Alike my Diva of Darkness Series, HUSH in The Dark also pushes boundaries but between sex,  incest, prostitution, sexual slavery and dark taboo themed erotica; poetry that is sure to shock as it is unique and thought provoking.

HUSH in The Dark will be available soon! 

 

 

$1.49

So, what’s the difference between buying straight from the Author instead of Amazon?

Answer:  There is no difference except for one is an Independent Seller and the other is Commercial.

Please read as a FREEBIE follows.

It has been brought to my attention – based on the emails/chat inquiries received – that enthusiasts of HUSH/DiamonD are not HAPPY about the decision I`ve made not to continue publishing via Amazon and other self-publishing platforms.  Example:  HUSH:  Revised, HUSH Novelettes, The DiamonD: BLOOD (to which I pulled last month), and the recent, The DiamonD:  HOLLYWOOD.

But in my honest opinion, I don`t think it’s the ebook(s) themselves – not being sold commercially online, that is – that have anything to do with the enthusiasts discontents but rather their Skepticism to buying something (i.e., eBooks) from somewhere other than Amazon/Smashwords/Kobo/Google Play/eBay and then being disappointed.

So instead of making this a long and drawn out post/thread about how I can`t stress enough my apologies for the decision – which was a personal choice, btw – I instead decided to let the skepticism speak for itself (unless you are one of those refund-happy-people, then sorry, I can`t help you as all sales are Final).
