Thursday News: Apple claims 20% of ebook market; Amazon axes Audible honorarium; Catagator calls for more sexually empowering YA
From Trish Doller’s upcoming book in September which I’ve been told by Brie from Romance Around the Corner that I must read:
I’m scared and shaking so hard and he keeps asking me if I want him to stop, but I don’t want him to stop. Then he touches me with his mouth and I melt.
When his body finally moves up over mine, my cheeks are damp with tears because I never believed it could feel good or that I would like it. Right now, in this moment, the absence of shame is shaped like Alex Kosta and I don’t want to let go of this feeling.
What I think is so important in this scene is that Callie admits to her own fear, but then she is very open about how good she feels. Not just emotionally, but physically, too. Her body feels good and her body can feel good. StackedBooks
I know that some readers feel like YA books should not have such explicit sex. What do you all think?
Self pubbed authors who have used this service report that it is a big money earner. But the termination of the Audible honorarium tells us all something and that is not everything that Amazon does today will be around tomorrow. Don’t build your business plan on it for the long term.
