“Add more names and disclose the identity of Papa or give the money back.” I remember how my publisher blew my mind with this statement in 2006 after I turned in the manuscript for The Vixen Diaries.
You guys are on the outside looking in and have no idea what goes on behind the scenes of an industry, any industry.
For the first time, I am free from the meddling hands of editors, attorneys, and a publisher telling me what to write, how to write, how much to write, what to put in or leave out. never again will someone dictate the name of my work, its cover art, the amount of words used, or how the work will be presented and when.
Thank you for making How To Make Love To A Martian my first book with such amazing reviews that they brought tears to my eyes. I am happy that you can see me more organically, now, and that you appreciate the real me.
In a series of videos I posted almost two years ago, I stated, “the vixen doesn’t exist” and “it was all contrived”. Simple folks, not familiar with the English language believed what I meant was that it was all a lie. But, what I meant is just what the word means –– the Vixen was deliberately created instead of arising naturally or spontaneously –– and the response mirrored that. Though I have found success and New York Times best selling acclaim three times, nothing is sweeter than being appreciated for the art, for the purity of the project.
Martian is organic and the response to it is overwhelming. It shows me that, not only do I not need the approval of a large publishing house, but that I am better without them.
Thank you for validating my gift, my art, and the notion that I operate better alone.
