My First eBook!

Hello, everyone! I've been keeping this fairly quiet, but you may have heard I'm taking a crack at publishing my erotic stories on the Kindle Marketplace. I'm planning on selling a mixture of my old stories, polished and sometimes expanded, and new stories as I manage to put them together. Today, I just published my very first! And I'm exceedingly nervous.

For my first story, I've gone with a very short but intense story of mine that I've always been rather proud of, titled Night Visitor. I've deleted the original from my archive, and the edited version is now proudly on sale for 2.99 USD! I would be immensely flattered if any of you were interested enough to purchase a copy, but I'm also offering, for all my existing fans, a one-day extension, so to speak: you can download the Kindle version, which should be easy to read on any mobile device, right here for the next 24 hours. Sadly, formatting doesn't seem to be retained very well in some cases, but the content, sans cover, should be intact.

If you have any problems, criticisms, or suggestions upon looking over the eBook, they would be of penultimate interest to me and you can feel free to comment here, note me, email me at Lithiers@gmail.com, or huck words at me any other way you see fit. Should you find this little story enjoyable and well made, however, I would be absolutely delighted if you deigned to leave a review on the Amazon page for my book.

Which isn't to say I only want positive things said about my book! A stack of overly positive reviews can do more harm than good at times, so I would beg you to be nothing but honest if you did find the time to review my eBook. Did I mention I'm a bit nervous?

Too Long, Didn't Read!: Free eBook! 24 Hours! Buy and/or review honestly here! Thank you all so much!

Actually, I don't think that was in the Sufficiently Short, Read Successfully, so let me say: thank you, everyone, for taking the time to read my work, and putting up with my constant delays, and in advance should you choose to peruse my new eBook and/or act upon your perusal! Some vague, vain vision of someday sustaining myself on the proceeds from such written works and actually becoming a full, proper "writer" hangs before me, a strange and ephemeral concept that I dare not reach out for lest it evaporate in an instant. But here I am, reaching, ever so tentatively.

Been reading some Asimov. I think it's showing.

Also! Speaking of commenting, I've relaxed the requirements to comment on the blog. I'd been hearing a few people say they would have commented but for the restrictions on accounts and such, so you should now be able to comment anonymously. I'm hoping this doesn't bring a plague of spammers down on our heads, or I may be forced to find some way to restrict them again.

Also also: QR Codes! Because I guess that's popular.

  2. Lithier. I don't know if it was a spelling error on your part or not.
    But I checked the ebook on amazon and on the site it says it costs 3.74 USD, not 2.99 USD as you stated in your post.

    It's not THAT huge of a difference, I mean, it still didn't stop me from buying it. But I was still wondering about it.

    1. Hrmm, I've looked into it a little, and I can't find that number anywhere. I've checked the page from several different browsers, and I've checked the versions of the book in each country/region it's available since the price can vary in different currencies, just in case, but I don't see 3.74 anywhere. I have to admit, unless you're getting just a little bit into the holiday (:p) I can't figure out how you ended up being charged an extra 75 cents o.0 I'll try and catch you in chat sometime and maybe we can figure it out. Thanks for letting me know!

    2. If anyone reads this wondering the same thing, it turns out that in some non-US countries, extra taxes are added to the price of the book if you buy it from the US site @.@; So if you're interested in a copy, I would encourage you to search for "night visitor lithier" on your own country's version of Amazon :3 Thanks again to Verdonia for telling me about this!
