Review of Hypnosis for a More Sensual Kegel

SexToyTesters has posted two reviews of Hypnotic Dreams' Hypnosis for a More Sensual Kegel. It's interesting how the two reviewers had  very different experiences with the mp3.

Progress on Joy of Sharing

Recorded a good session of Joy of Sharing. I've started editing the sound file. The script is longer than most of my scripts, so editing will probably take about 2 1/2 weeks.

Finished writing the Cunnilingus script

Today I finished writing the erotic hypnosis script that will help women accept and enjoy receiving cunnilingus. It would probably be a good idea to set up a focus group and get some feedback on this script. But I probably won't even start rehearsing it until after I finish The Joy of Sharing.

Working on a Cunnilingus script.

A while back, a couple of my customers asked me to write an erotic hypnosis script that would help them become more comfortable receiving cunnilingus. It's been on my to-do list and in the back of my mind for while, and I finally got a bit of inspiration on how it might work.

So I've started writing this script. No doubt I'll need a couple of test subjects for this when I'm done.

Status update: The Joy of Sharing

I've finished writing The Joy of Sharing. Going to rehearse for a week or two, then I'd like to schedule a test over Skype. I'm going to need a few volunteers for the test. Anyone interested?

3somes and polyamory

I'm working on an erotic hypnosis script that will encourage the female listener to desire for MFF 3somes. I'm calling it the "Joy of Sharing". I think it will also work as a primer to introduce women to polyamorous relationships.
I've written about half of the script. So hopefully I'll have the writing finished next week.
This is a new subject for me. So I'm thinking about getting a couple of test subjects to help me test it before I make the final recording.

What's next?

I'm trying to decide if I should start writing another hypnosis script, another novel, or another epistemology article. Lots of ideas, but nothing that really feels ready to develop.

Broken Links to the reviews

The links to the reviews on are currently not working. But I'm told that this is a temporary situation. They're redesigning their web site and they'll supply me with updated URLs once the new site is up.

Tweaking the website

My apologies if the web site's performance gets a little weird/inconsistent this week. I'm converting a most of my images from png to jpg. I hope this will improve page download rates.

 I'm also updating the HTML and CSS on most of the pages to be HTML5 compliant. Hopefully, this will improve page rendering and search engine optimization.

After that's done, I'll see if I can improve the style sheet for rendering for mobile devices.  (No promises on this though. I've never understood why people even buy cell phones let alone surf the web on one.)

Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research

I donated a bundle of my ebooks/novels to the Brenda Novak Auction for Diabetes Research. The retail value of the bundle is only $11, but it raised $20 at auction. Must say, I'm a bit surprised.

A critique from Flogging the Quill

Trying some non-erotic writing, I opened myself up to a little criticism of a new story idea. Editor and story consultant, Ray Rhamey, offers first page critiques for writers. You send him the first chapter of your novel. He posts it on his blog in two parts: the first page, and the rest of the chapter. Then he and his readers critique it from a reader's perspective, whether or not it will entice a reader to read further. 

I submitted the first chapter (actually a very early draft) of "The Dark Matter Bimbos". You can join the dialog at

Be candid, and don't worry about hurting my feelings (it's just a first draft). But keep in mind that it's a mainstream (not erotic) writer's community.

What a mess.

What a mess. In the middle of changing my books to display my new pen name, the graphic program resets to the trial period. It won't let me save or export any images. The company is out of business, so there is no tech support. The online forums have a solutions, but the only way it works is to upgrade to the next Mac operating system. And since this computer is on it's last legs, I'm afraid to make any changes to it. So I'm forced to buy a new computer, even though I can't afford it.

New Pen Name: Angraecus Daniels

After batting it around for a while, trying out a few variations, and asking a few opinions, I've settled on a new pen name, Angraecus Daniels. Kind of makes me sound like an ancient Greek philosopher. But people seem to like it.

Now I have to rework all the files and cover art for my books. THAT's going to be a pain.

Results of book giveaways

I've conducted three giveaways since January:

  • Using the Rafflecopter widget on my web site and on facebook. I offered 2 copies of The Pygmalion Hypnotist (ebook). After 7 days, I received only 7 entrants. One of those two posted a review on Amazon.
  • Using Booklike, I offered 3 copies of an Redemption for the Hypnotist ebook. After 14 days, I received only 8 entries.
  • Using Goodreads, I offered 4 copies of Pygmalion (paperback). After 28 days, I received 612 entries and 283 people added the book to their 'to-read' list.
I promoted all three giveaways through facebook, my web site, my mailing list, and the usual hypnosis-related forums. But clearly, I reached far more people on Goodreads. I think that Goodreads does a much better job of engaging readers in the giveaway.

I hope that the people who added The Pygmalion Hypnotist to their Goodreads reading list will actually read the book some day. But it's difficult to predict. Some of those people have several thousand books on their lists.

Updated Author's bio

I updated my Author bio on Amazon and GoodReads.

Not sure if that will make a difference in sales. Not even sure if it's funny. But at least it shows a little more imagination than the previous bio. Anyone care to comment on it?

Video experiment

A little experiment. I recited one of my articles and made a video out of it.

Pygmalion: Is the title scaring people off?

I mentioned my frustration over my sales in a discussion board and one of the posters responded with this:

The average person skimming the erotica title list will see "The Pygmalion Hypnotist" and either continue on because they have no clue what it means ("is that some kind of pygmy who hypnotizes people?") or continue on because they vaguely remember that "Pygmalion" was one of those books they were assigned to read in high school that they never read.

In short, the title scares them off.

I wonder if it's true.

Giveaway concluded

The giveaway concluded last night, and I notified the winners by email this morning.

If the giveaway had been successful, I would have considered conducting another giveaway with an mp3. But I was disappointed with the level of participation. Only 7 people entered, and I received no comments or feedback. So I don't know if this was because of lack of interest or an aversion to the widget.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014


I'm conducting an experimental giveaway. Just to see how much interest it can generate. I'm giving away two copies of my latest ebook, The Pygmalion Hypnotist. There are three ways to enter.

Two winners will each receive a copy of the book in ebook format.

Mailing list issues

I've long suspected that many of my mailing list members weren't receiving the messages I posted. Now I've confirmed this. I'm now searching for another software I can use to manage the list.

The Pygmalion Hypnotist is now available

Hypnotic Dreams is celebrating World Hypnotism Day with the release of The Pygmalion Hypnotist.

The Pygmalion Hypnotist is a 72k-word BDSM/psychological crime novel, but of course it is also an erotic hypnosis novel. In addition to the primary story described in the synopsis I've provided for the bookstores, hypnotist, Darren Braid, trains a consensual slave who is new to the hypnosis fetish. What he learns from his consensual slave helps his treatment of the abused girl, and what he learns from helping the abused girl helps him train the consensual slave.

The ebook is already available on Amazon and Smashwords, and Barnes&Noble should be available at iTunes fairly soon.

I'm hoping to make a paperback version available in the near future

I've also set up a goodreads page for those who enjoy sharing reviews.

I hope you enjoy this novel, and I wish everyone a good World Hypnotism Day.
