Bad reviews or no rating does not mean that you are not a good author. I totally get it that it is hard to provide a best seller story. I just wish that the authors will learn from their readers and remain constructive about their reviews. I dislike those readers or reviewer who just not elaborate why they did not like this or this. I hope that none of the authors that I do rate low will be offended but take it with a grain of salt. I KNOW that one book does not reflect your talent or lack of it. So please continue to write because you are very courageous to do so!
Please please please try to give equal time with each main character. It is very frustrating to read a story with multiple guys and know only 2 of 4 for example. If you chose to have a certain number, make sure to describe their personality and the reasons why they are in the love relationship!
MMF Menage and characters:
I have so much to say about this… First, PLEASE (tenfold) stop giving us stupid heroine with no sense of rebellion or even brain!!!!! Is it the virgin complex here? Does she has to be dumb and accept to be a toy or used as sex slave between two alpha dominant alphas? AGRRR … Second, can you PLEASE put the heroine at the right place when it is a MMF and not give us a MM gay story with a girl on the side? I do not mind bisexuality but by all means, let it be an equal bisexuality!!!
It is okay to end a story with MF (one male, one female). However it is incredibly disappointing to buy a book described as a menage. expecting a happy menage ending and find out that it is only menage sex scenes or orgies. There is a huge difference. You should make sure to let the publisher know and ask them to add a clear mention in the excerpt/description.
I understand that is a new way to attract and sell. BUT. This becomes totally ridiculous to wait months to get a complete book! I loose completely the interest to buy them. Not only it is more expensive in the end but each time I loose track of who is who and the plot. On top of that, it is obvious that the author is rushed and the quality is just not there!
a little effort in here would be appreciated… 😉
is it possible to make an effort here and provide some clues to the artist so they can offer a nice related cover with the story? How ridiculous to have the hero bald and the hero on the cover with brown hair… duh!
I would like to raise the attention to both authors and publishers to make the effort that the french is used correctly without grammar typos. The free online translators are crap! It is as important to read a perfect French as to read a perfect English. Not taking the time to verify the grammar is a lack of respect in my opinion. I hope that this review will reach some of you and from now on you will provide us, french readers, the quality of language that we deserve.
I like strong plots and originals. I understand that the stalkers and serial killers are there to be used but after many stories, it gets old. The big bad guy does not have to be described right away with all details. I love to discover the personality and the reasons chapter after chapter.
I personally dislike quickies (10-20K). I do not find any depth in the story but only a long sex scene to be listed as erotica. I enjoy long novels when the authors explore all the details of their plots and characters. This is extremely enjoyable to know that a book has over 200 pages and more (70-100K)! And I really do not mind it the price is a little bit higher as long as it brings quality with it!
I noticed that a couple of publishers are delivering poor pdf quality. It seems that the conversion is not correct. Generally the font used shows some issues like letters glued together. This causes multiple problems not only to read easily but also some e-reader consider the font as unknown and pick another one (in my case it is Papyrus which if you know the font is very very difficult to read a full story with. So make sure to verify the pdf quality before selling it. I for myself is very frustrated because I need to have a HTML to convert it into a clean pdf or if I do not have another format spend hours and hours to export to word and clean page after page. At this point, I would say that it is not normal for me to pay and not have a perfect format.
Thank You!: Finally I would like to thank all the authors and publishers who allow me to enjoy the erotic menage romance. It is now growing more and more popular vs MF and MM and you have NO idea how I look forward to your new releases!!!
