4th round of edits finished

I just finished the 4th edit of Understanding Erotic Hypnosis. I couldn’t believe how much of my earlier writing had to be reworked. But so glad I went through it again. Now I’m waiting on instructions from the publisher.  

I need another term for ‘rape-fantasy’

I have found a publisher for my book, Understanding Erotic Hypnosis, and I’m currently working on the third draft. The book includes a few paragraphs that discuss the differences between forced arousal fantasies and rape fantasies. I think they’re important discussions. BUT the publisher has informed me that I cannot use the word ‘rape’ anywhere… Read More »

Writing a Contemporary Fantasy

So while I’m waiting to hear from my beta readers and potential publishers about the nonfiction book, Exploring Erotic Hypnosis, I’ve started writing another novel.

Discontinuing the CD editions

Amazon has announced that they will be closing down the Media On Demand program this coming summer. Ten of my recordings  are currently available on CD through that program. These CDs will be discontinued. They never sold that well. Seems like most people these days prefer to download MP3s. So it’s not worth the effort… Read More »

Status update – Books and Audios

I’m sure it looks like I haven’t done anything with Hypnotic Dreams for the last few months. But I have been working on a few things. Back in August 2020, I decided the articles I’ve posted here constitute about half of a book. But after the writing a book proposal and a detailed table of… Read More »

I think I’ve written half a book

Looking over the articles I’ve written about erotic hypnosis, d/s and sexual health, I realized that I’ve written half a book. So I’ve decided to assemble a book proposal and start looking for a literary agent.
