Now, this is a blatant marketing ploy, but it contains more than enough hot sex to justify its existence. It contains the first chapters of several of my longer novels and some other standalone stories.
And another blatant marketing ploy which is nonetheless pretty smoking hot, my short story collection 50 SHADES OF PAIN is available free HERE ON AMAZON for the next five days.
I haven’t been able to write much for the last couple of months — some of you know I have caregiver responsibilities that sometimes take up a lot of my time — but I’ll be continuing STEPBROTHER BRUTE soon and I have ideas for the first chapter of JANA’S JOURNEY 3 kicking around my head that are just begging to get out on paper.
STEPBROTHER BRUTE is back and the series is finally continuing.
The first two parts are available on Amazon now:
There’s a new hot guy in 18-year-old Emma’s life and home, in the form of a tall and savagely handsome new MMA fighter stepbrother. Living with the family after an injury, he’s a hard-partying and selfish alpha male with a bad attitude, and she’s fed up with him.
But why does she get so hot when he’s around?
This is the first chapter in a sizzling new contemporary new adult stepbrother romance thriller from Natasha Stevens, author of I OWN YOU and JANA’S JOURNEY. More installments coming soon! WARNING! RED HOT CONTENTS! READER DISCRETION ADVISED!
Things got a little out of hand between Emma and her new MMA fighter stepbrother, Wade, but she’s thought of a way to get a little payback against him and take their relationship to a new level — with the helps of her hot Russian friend Valeria.
This is the second chapter in a steamy new adult romance thriller from Natasha Stevens, author of I OWN YOU and JANA’S JOURNEY. WARNING! RED HOT CONTENTS! READER DISCRETION ADVISED!
Of course, to be frank, I don’t see a lot to be overly thankful for this November, not for me personally, not for my book business, and not for America, but I guess you can always be thankful that things aren’t worse.
Hey, remember when Amazon erotica cost 99 cents, and were short enjoyable reads about people having sex, with no long-winded Mafia plots and full of extra sample chapters and ad pages to pad out their lengths?
Well, relive those days with TAKEN AT THE HAUNTED HOUSE:
I was thoroughly violated by Amazon in June; almost all of my books were blocked. I got them put back up, but the problem of course is that I lost most of my reviews.
Now I’ve never gotten a lot of reviews — probably because, unlike most Amazon authors, I don’t pay for them — but my reviews were previously mostly good.
At the moment however, pretty much the only reviews I have are bad.
The problem is that most of the people who leave reviews on Amazon are people who love the kind of writing I hate. Flowery, over-written, full of the cliches of the genre.
On the Amazon UK site, someone criticized THREE DAYS A SLAVE as “Poorly written and trashy.” I checked out a book that the critic gave 5 stars to, a lengthy historical fantasy romance, and I about wanted to vomit. The first paragraph consisted of six long sentences, all of which stated in different ways that the Queen was sitting looking out the window.
That’s one of the problems with modern romances. They always start with the backstory and spend ten chapters getting to the good stuff. It’s just as easy to begin “Karin took off her panties and stepped into the room”, and then explain who Karin is, as it is to begin with twenty chapters explaining who Karin is.
Here are some things you are never going to read in a book by Natasha Stevens:
Lengthy descriptions of the weather, architecture, or clothes.
Lengthy descriptions of shopping trips or meals
No Wikipedia-style paragraphs about the history of this or that city or country. (If you want to know more about Prague, for example, look it up yourself.)
Numerous rhetorical questions the narrator asks of herself, such as “how could I feel this way? How could my body betray me like this? How could I allow him to use me this way?”
I try to follow Elmore Leonard’s 10 Rules of Writing (With the possible exception of the one about using adverbs. As he says, romances are full of “rape and adverbs.” It’s kind of our stock-in-trade.
One of my favorite reviews described THE HITMAN AND THE ESCORT as a “thriller with no filler” and I thought that was exactly what I was trying to do.
Anyway, THE HITMAN AND THE ESCORT will be available for free for the next five days:
I’ve been up most of the night crying: Amazon yesterday blocked ELEVEN of my books.
No warning given, and no explanation provided. Just the usual “in violation of content guidelines” and those guidelines are literally “pretty much what you’d expect.”
I’ve had a book or two blocked before, but never like this. It’s not the actual fact of blocking my works, or Amazon choosing what kind of stuff they want on their platform; it’s the cruel, cruelly random nature of the way they do it.
All my books were approved and published, and all of them were already selling. Apple is very strict about content; but they block it BEFORE they publish it.
There was no warning. There are no guidelines about what is unacceptable. (Obviously there is a LOT of stuff available on Amazon that is far, far more offensive than my stuff. And why did some of my books remain? It seems to have been a crack down on the term “dark erotica.”)
There is no appeal process (although you can contact them to talk about it, though it rarely helps.) I might be able to re-publish some of them, but they’ll have lost their rankings, which were doing very well.
Just, suddenly, 70 percent of my income has disappeared. Poof.
