Bloodlust is out!

Well, I didn’t really know how these things worked (on account of, y’know, not having been published before, save for self) but my erotic horror novella “Bloodlust”, published by House of Erotica Books/Andrews UK Ltd, has been released:

Buy it from Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Bloodlust-Supernatural-Erotica-ebook/dp/B008N04VOA/ref=sr_1_cc_1?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1342842168&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=bloodlust+ian+kidd

and no doubt other places too.

It already seems to be selling better than all my self published titles put together, if not on the bestseller list just yet lol.

Amazing what a bit of smut can do, isn’t eh?

Are You Now Or Have You Ever Been… An Erotica Writer?

Well, it’s official. I’m getting published, and I’m not talking self. I’m very pleased to be able to say that an erotic horror novella I wrote called “Bloodlust” has been accepted for publication by UK-based ebook publisher House of Erotica Books.
It’s pretty exciting (if more than a little ironic that I write sci-fi for 20 years and have to publish it myself but the moment I write something saucy…).
“Bloodlust” is about a lesbian vampire who enjoys seducing and murdering young women, but whose latest target/would-be victim might just be her downfall… in more ways than one. Also included in the book will be a comic erotic short story of mine called “Bottle It”, which is about a dateless young woman who’s so desperate for some romance she agrees to a “clinical trial” of a wonder potion that will supposedly make her irresistible to those she desires… but it doesn’t go quite as she might have hoped.
House of Erotica Books have been great, and I’m feeling pretty chuffed right about now lol! Not sure what the release date will be yet, but I’ll let you know.

I’m just looking forward to seeing the cover… lol!


Fun With Formatting

Formatting is fun, isn’t it?
When I write, I tend to write on pen and paper. Yes, I know, luddite, but tech just clouds my thought processes and I’d rather do it the old fashioned way. Plus it means you get to do a clean-up/redraft when it comes to typing the thing up. About five or six years ago, not long after I first got a computer (yes, luddite, shut up), I thought it was about time I typed up the endless stories clugging up my cupboard, so I did. Took months and months, but I did. You would think that would make it easier when it came time to self-publish, wouldn’t you?
Well, maybe you wouldn’t. The problem, of course, is formatting. See, I used Wordpad to type them up, didn’t even get Word till like four years ago (shut up) and didn’t even do that right, as it turns out. So now everything is crappily formatted, all over the place and everything else, and that’s not even counting the specific instructions you have to follow for the likes of Kindle and Smashwords. So, to cut a long story short… it’s taking me a while.
I suppose that’s good in a way, otherwise I’d just dump a hundred or so e-books on the net in the space of a week, which probably wouldn’t be a good idea either…
