The Simply Breathtaking Series



I was at a friend’s place watching the new episode of True Blood and an email came in. I wasn’t going to check it out as I am normally glued to my phone, and may be considered rude. But when my friend started checking hers relief overwhelmed me and  I am so glad I did. It was the new daily online newspaper I follow ‘The Spirit and The Senses.’  Once uploaded I automatically covered my mouth and whispered ‘Oh my god.’   My debut erotica novella PLENTIFUL PACKAGE  made the HEADLINE… THE HEADLINE. The first story on the front page.


I hear people say it’s only a Newspaper.  I respond with, ‘When was the last time you bought a real newspaper?’  Digital Newspapers are the way of the future and in the writing and twitter industry it’s a big deal.  Within 10 minutes (if that) of looking at the paper it had been retweeted 363 times and that’s just twitter not Facebook, google +, in, emails or the people subscribed to the daily newspaper, Ten minutes…

This is the first time ‘Plentiful Package’ my debut erotica has made a headline and I am so grateful.  OMG… but then I looked down the front page and my Co-host (from The Melissa Craig & Charity Parkerson Podcast on iTunes) Charity Parkerson had her book trailer featured an Erotica short story.  I did a yippee as I had another post about ‘Plentiful Package making its way up the charts’ ~  featured in the Story section. Yay!  (‘Plentiful Package’ made the BOOKS YOU CAN’T PUT DOWN’ on Goodreads. I am ranked in between E .L. James and Charlaine Harris. Who could ask for anything more?)

If you haven’t subscribed to this published by a wonderful person Melodee Miller you need to do it today to get up to date information about books, media and other things on twitter.

I have had such a wonderful week of features in papers this week… For ‘Plentiful Package’ and my upcoming book ‘Ample Attraction.’  Check out my debut book Plentiful Package and why not buy one for a friend.. they will thank you. It can be bought  on Amazon, Smashwords, iTunes, Kobo, Sony,  Barnes and Noble, Angus and Robertson, Boards, Book Depository and any online book seller.  Available in Paperback and e-book.
