Still working on the member area, that is. The initial content is posted, so now it’s a matter of dealing with the hosting company and getting all the paperwork in order. The latest issue is that, because the photosets and videos are purchased from a broker, rather than stuff commissioned directly for the site, we have to come up with some extra paperwork we wouldn’t need if our site was directly cited on the model releases.
We not only have to prove the models are old enough, and consented to perform, but we have to prove we bought the right to use the pictures and videos on our site from the actual copyright holders.
Honestly, I’m all for this. Like any writer, I hate it when people pirate your work and distribute it without paying you. It’s just extra work handling the compliance. More so at the beginning, because this stuff comes one step at a time, while later you know what needs to be done, and can get everything compliant up front.
In between the web stuff, I’m getting closer and closer to finishing They All Cum at Carlisle’s, the latest installment in my so-called autobiography. If I ever finish all the installments, I may put everything together in a single volume. Or, I may not. Once this latest epic is completed and available for sale, I’ll have six books sold at Lot’s Cave, and at whatever other sites they can get to carry them.
Those used to include some fairly mainstream sites, but most of those no longer carry “family” erotica. That will mean three in the “autobiography” series, The Life of Lauren, Across the Pond, and They All Cum at Carlisle’s, and three in the general family/kinky erotica category, Freaky Farmers, My Brother, the Porn Star, and The Gods are Horny.
They’re getting the publishing backlog caught up at Lot’s Cave, so I’d expect those last two will be available shortly. There are other publishers who get your work out much faster, but those others rely entirely on the author for editing. It needs to be perfect before it’s uploaded. Lot’s Cave actually reads the book before they publish it, and they do much better cover designs than I’ve ever managed on my own. I happen to think I submit my books better edited than most–I did do that for quite a few years–but it’s still good to have at least one more set of eyes on the finished work.
I’m starting to feel like I’m beginning to make my presence felt on Twitter, too. (Why do I hear that in Billie Burke’s voice? “And Twitter, too.”) Ron Jeremy retweeted one of my tweets! There’s something I always greatly admired about that man, and I’m not talking about his intellect, which is rather impressive as well.
Naturally, to keep him working happily, I’ve been providing little bonuses to my web guy. He’s a horny old goat, and eight-inches is eight-inches, even if the owner is eligible for Social Security. Anyway, as old guys go, he’s fairly cute.
