My thoughts, small pieces that might or might not make their way to my writing.

Using Amazon Affiliate to Generate Revenue from your Blog

Using Amazon Affiliate to Generate Revenue from your Blog

I was chatting with spanking romance author Patty Devlin about the presentation she was giving on using social media to promote one’s brand as an author. I reminded her that she was the one who introduced me to Amazon Affiliatelinks when I first got started blogging. She snorted and said she made about $.50 a month on it.  This made me think that maybe bloggers don’t realize how lucrative and…

Getting it up: Blog Hits and Web Traffic

Getting it up: Blog Hits and Web Traffic

I meant to have a mini-celebration when it happened, but I crossed half a million page hits without noticing last month.  I know it’s neither here nor there. Some of you have far more than that, some fewer. And ultimately, page hits don’t matter if you’re not getting the right people to visit your blog or website. While I don’t consider myself an expert, I have learned a…

Well that’s my birthday wish list sorted…

Well that’s my birthday wish list sorted…

I am genuinely curious about pretty much everything in life, and the sex toy industry is nothing if not packed full of curiosities. So it was with wriggling excitement that I trawled last month’s ETO show for intriguing and unusual playthings.

I happen to know that this column is read by curious readers as well as other writers, so I decided to take the opportunity to introduce some new products…

Renee Rose: Making a Living Writing Erotica

Renee Rose: Making a Living Writing Erotica

When I fell into writing spanking romance, I got lucky. It just so happened that the thing I wanted to write most in the world also happened to be a niche in which it’s easy to make a solid living. Within six months I was making enough each month to pay the mortgage and in a year I was making what I consider a full-time living. I read a figure (which I’m sorry, I can’t seem to dig up the…

Stealing - still not sexy! More on copyright infringement

Stealing – still not sexy! More on copyright infringement

Following on from last night’s post about the illegal use of my images I thought I’d share with you the email exchange that I had with the culprit.

What pisses me off here is the sheer brass balls of the denial along with the rudeness of it.  I couldn’t give a toss if she’s heard of me or not, there are a lot of people writing erotica and sex, what annoys me is the lie that she created the…

Copyright infringement is never cool especially when it’s my arse you’re infringing

Copyright infringement is never cool especially when it’s my arse you’re infringing

I had hoped to get back to blogging with something more jolly, or at least more filthy, than this blog post, but instead I’m talking about copyright infringement of my arse.

I was checking out tumblr today and spotted an image that was very familiar. Familiar because it was an image of me, well, my arse.

It was the image I created for the original publication of my ebook Normal, when it was…

Harper’s Bizarre: Sex Criminals (but not those ones)

Harper’s Bizarre: Sex Criminals (but not those ones)

Sex_Criminals_CoverGenerally speaking, I am not a great reader of comics and graphic novels. Don’t get me wrong, I have read some! And enjoyed them. The Kurt Cobain graphic novel, GodSpeed, which my brother brought home hidden in his school bag some years ago, appealed, at the time, to my teenage angst; I will also confess to having actively sought out the filthiest, most depraved volume of Battle Royalewhich now…
