Word Count Codes
In an effort to make it a little clearer just what kind of depth and development of plot and character you can expect in each story, I have created a Word Count code.
These stories are much like a vignette; they focus on a moment in time in the character's lives. They are very short - but off the charts hot. Word count will typically be between 2,000 and 4,000 words. Due to their length, these stories fall strictly under the erotica category.
These are stories that are between 4000 and 7500 words. They focus on a short period of time in the character's lives. They contain a limited amount of plot and back-story, but no too much. Most of the focus is on sexy interactions between the characters. These stories can be erotica or erotic romance, but due to their length most will fall under erotica.
Typically these stories will be between 7,500 and 12,500 words. They are fairly fleshed out, and have emotional depth as well as plot. They are still going to be off the charts hot - but will contain more build-up and character development. Stories can be both erotica and erotic romance, although leaning towards erotic romance a little stronger.
Coming in between 12,500 and 40,000 words, these stories are fleshed out, with deep character development and a full plot. They are going to be more erotic romance than erotica, but fear not - they are still hot!
Due to the fact I allow my characters to be true to themselves, and don't try to constrain them to any set sexuality, the stand alone stories are categorized by the sexuality of the couple involved.
Because so many of my stories are short in length, and I know how nice it is to have the option of holding either an ereader or a paperback book, I have combined several of my stories into print editions
I started off my writing career with very short stories, generally 1000 to 3500 words in lengths. I was writing for specific anthology calls. Since then, I still dabble here and there with shorter words for specific anthologies ...
I have also made sure to released these shorts in collections of my own works.
These anthologies are rather nice, because you can find stories in a specific theme - such as spanking, or vampire - find one to support a cause near and dear to your heart - and also find a plethora of new authors to read.
I decided to make some of my older, and shorter, stories free. They are all linked to Smashwords, so that you can select the reading format you prefer.
