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.

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.
