Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to all the readers of the Intraoral Press books. I hope to have a lot more for you in 2012, and I hope you continue to enjoy them!

If you haven't taken the Intraoral Press Reader Survey please do so! I'm finding the feedback really helpful, and I'd love to hear from more readers. I already have a few ideas how to integrate what readers seem to want in future Dr.Wrighting books (though maybe not yet in the ones that are close to completion). The survey will remain open for a bit longer, and I'll then post my analysis of the results for you.

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all my readers !

And if you got an eReader for Christmas remember that all of the Dr.Samantha Wrighting books are available on Kindle, and several are available for the Nook and iPad. And they're all available in eBook and print at Lulu!

Weekly update

Thanks to everybody who has completed the Intraoral Press Reader Survey! And if you haven't filled it out yet please do so. The more information I have the better! I think the feedback will definitely be helpful, although it might be a while before I can work it into the books. (I'm going to leave the survey open for a while longer, but I'll report on the results when I'm finished.)

A couple more projects are slowly nearing completion, but around Christmas time it can be hard to find time to write, so I don't know how soon it will be until the next one will be available.

Weekly update

Thank you to everyone who has already taken the Intraoral Press Reader Survey! And if you haven't yet, please take it - it's really helpful learning about what readers do and don't like and want!

Bracing Times with Cecilia is now also available from Lulu as an ebook, for those who prefer the ePub format to the Kindle. It also costs $5.99. (Lulu has changed how ebooks are made and formatted a bit - I preferred the old pdf system, but the ePub book looks good too.) Hopefully that also means it will be available for iBook and Nook soon!

Reader survey

I don't get much feedback from readers - no Amazon reviews yet! - but I'd like to know more about why you like my books and what else you'd like to read about, so I hope all of you will take my first Intraoral Press Reader Survey.

It's ten questions and I hope it will give me a better of idea of what you like reading about. I don't know how much I can tailor the books to what you like, but if there's some stuff you really love or some your really HATE maybe I can adjust to that in future books. I'll try!

Remember that some of the questions allow for multiple answers! And thanks a lot for taking the survey!

Thanksgiving treat ! Get "Bracing Times with Cecilia"

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! And as a special treat: there's a new Dr. Samantha Wrighting novel available, Bracing Times with Cecilia!

Right now it's available in print from Lulu (where you can also preview the first pages) and on Kindle in: Bracing Times with Cecilia is the third volume in the Erotic Orthodontic Encounter series, and it's the most ambitious and longest one yet — 132 pages and over 53,000 words. So I hope you get your money's worth!

What's it about? Well, the way I describe it is:
Cecilia is a junior in college. On the one hand, she’s beautiful, from a wealthy family, smart and charming. On the other hand … she has braces. Roger is torn, attracted to everything about her — but her braces are impossible to overlook. Drawn to one another, they begin a relationship — but Cecilia’s orthodontic issues and then her demands don’t make it easy for Roger.
I'm really excited about this one because it introduces a great new character to the Dr.Samantha Wrighting novels. Cecilia St.Winthropson is twenty years old here, and the novel just describes her first half year or so in braces — and in her relationship with Roger. She's considering a career in orthodontics, and she even gets a summer job helping out at Dr.Wrighting's office, but what happens next is still totally open. Will she really go into orthodontics? Will she and Roger stay together?

I really like this character because she has a lot of issues to work through, and she still has a lot of room to develop as a character and I am looking forward to using her in more novels.

It is an Erotic Orthodontic Encounter, so there is quite a bit of sex. I hope I am doing that in a way readers like! Some of what happens here is a bit kinky, I guess, but that's also in keeping with the character and also what I think makes Cecilia so interesting.

This novel is narrated by Roger, who become her boyfriend. I think it's a good way to introduce Cecilia, but maybe I'll have her narrate her own story in a later book.

Anyway, I hope you like it, and I hope you like Cecilia! I look forward to hearing what readers think — including what they think should happen to Cecilia (and Roger).

Happy Thanksgiving!

Weekly update

I'm excited that someone has bought Retainer Girl from iBooks! It's probably easier to read on the iPad than the Kindle. Though of course I'm very pleased by how many people are buying my books in the Kindle format. I hope you're enjoying them!

And stay tuned - I have a Thanksgiving surprise coming up, which I hope you'll like!

Weekly update

It's so exciting seeing how many people are buying the Kindle editions of the books. I guess that really is the most convenient format, even though few readers outside the US are trying it so far. (Other electronic editions are available at Lulu.com (or the iStore!), but they don't seem as popular.) But compared to how few people by the printed versions of the books the electronic versions are incredibly successful. I am surprised that there isn't much feedback - no customer reviews at Amazon yet! - but as long as people are enjoying them!

I am working on several new projects which are coming along well. I know I should focus on one at a time, but there is so much I want to write. So it'll still be a few weeks at least before the next one is available. Probably another Erotic Orthodontic Encounter!

I think I will also post a poll soon - maybe after the next book - to find out what readers want. I hope they're finding it in the books available already, but there is a lot left to explore.

Intraoral Press books now also on Kindle in France

I'm so pleased to see that I've found so many new readers by having the Dr.Wrighting books available on Kindle. Almost all of them are in the US - I guess Kindle hasn't taken off as much in Europe yet - but now the books are also available in France on Kindle, at Amazon.fr. Maybe a lot of French people want to read them??? I hope so.

Dr.Wrighting +1s

So Dr.Wrighting is now on Google's +1! I don't know how much she will post or whether she'll have big circles, but I think it's good that she is trying this.

Thank you to all of you who have been buying the books! The ebook and Kindle format seems to be a lot more popular with readers, so I'm glad I have made the books available like that. I hope you're enjoying them!

There are no customer reviews anywhere yet - I wonder when or if those will start appearing. They might be useful for other people who might be interested in the books, so I do hope some come. But I'm a bit scared to hear what people think too - though I try to find constructive stuff in all criticism!

And more books are on the way. Not too soon, maybe, but they're coming along pretty well.

Madison's Braces on Kindle

Madison's Braces is now available on Kindle - in the US ($3.49), in the UK (£2.53), and in Germany (2.99 euros).

I hope more people get to read it this way, and that they like it!

Madison's Braces

See yesterday's post for information about my new Dr.Samantha Wrighting short. I've now also added a Madison's Braces page at the Intraoral Press site.

Remember, it's only available as an eBook! It should be available on Kindle soon, but you can already get a copy at Lulu.

I hope you like it and that you'll let me know what you think about it.

New eBook!!!!

Yes! A new Dr.Samantha Wrighting short is available! (It's available on Lulu (here!) and should be available on Kindle in a few days.) It's a "short", so it's only available as an eBook (I'm going to collect the shorts in a print edition too, after the next one is published).

What is it called?
Madison's Braces

What's it about?
When she's in fifth grade more and more of Madison's classmates get braces - and she finds out she will need them as well. But Madison sees what happens to kids with braces, and how they are treated, and she decides she wants to use that to her advantage: she wants to wait until she's fifteen until she gets them, hoping they'll help ward off the pressures of fitting in and looking pretty and playing dumb for the boys. If she has braces then, she thinks she'll be able to avoid falling for all of that, and can concentrate on her studies instead. Will her parents go along with her plan? Will her orthodontist, Dr.Wrighting? And what's it like having braces in high school? Read about Madison's orthodontic journey, in the Dr.Samatha Wrighting short, Madison's Braces.

How short a short is it?
It's a long one! About 90 pages and 35,000 words!

How much does it cost?
Only $3.49! And that's what the Kindle version will cost too.

Who is it suitable for?
This is one of the Dr.Samantha Wrighting books that's really about what it's like having braces, so this is suitable for general audiences. But like all the Dr.Samantha Wrighting books, remember that it's "a work of fiction and for entertainment purposes some aspects of orthodontic treatment and wear are exaggerated and the characters' experiences should not be considered representative".

I hope you like it!

I'll be posting more information soon! I haven't even had time to put up a page for the book at the Intraoral Press website, but I wanted you to know that the new book is available. And there's another "short", and another "Erotic Orthodontic Encounter" that should be finished soon too!

July update

I'm glad I decided to make the books available on Kindle. People really seem to like that - at least in the US. I guess Kindle isn't that big elsewhere yet.... No reviews at Amazon yet but I hope people like what they're reading!

I am working on more. I know I should concentrate on one project but I have a few different ideas I am working on. I hope that I can publish more soon.

Get Headgeared!

You can now get Headgeared!

This is the first Dr.Samantha Wrighting short, bite-size introductions to the offices and patients of Dr.Wrighting, available exclusively as ebooks and on Kindle.

Headgeared is a short, intense account of facing getting orthodontic headgear.

The orthodontist puts the facebow on the tray in front of the patient. "I stared at it. I realized that my whole life was going to change in the next few minutes."
There's getting braces, and then there's getting headgear on top of the braces. Headgeared is one girl's short story about the day that changed everything.

It's only 34 pages long (12,000 words) - but it's also cheap: $1.99 on Lulu, and $.99 on Kindle. I hope this is a good way to let readers sample the world of Dr.Wrighting, and then maybe they'll take a look at the other books!

It's now available at Lulu, and on Kindle at Amazon in the US, the UK and even in Germany.

I hope readers like it!

Books on German Kindle

Jetzt als Download verf├╝gbar! All the Intraoral Press books are now also available on Kindle in Germany. I guess they weren't before. I don't know how big the audience of English reading German Kindle users is, but maybe there are some who are interested in the books. So far there haven't been too many Kindle downloads in the US either, but I hope the books will catch on!

Weekly update

The print edition of The Braced Tease should be available on Amazon soon. I'm surprised that the e-book version is so popular, though no one has bought it on Kindle yet. I guess lots of readers like the downloadable version.

I hope readers are enjoying it (and all the other IoPress books!).

I am also working on a bigger project that I have been working on for a while but that I put aside for a long time. It's a really big novel, but I really like it.

Announcing "The Braced Tease"

There's a new short book out, The Braced Tease! It's not *officially* out yet - I still have to get a copy of the printed version to see that it looks ok - but the digital versions are definitely ok, and you can get it at:

Lulu: in print or download

On Kindle (UK)

This is another short book (80 pages, 27,000 words), and it is both An Erotic Orthodontic Encounter and A Dr. Samantha Wrighting novel.

It is less explicit than Notwithstanding Braces because I tried something different here. First of all, it's the first time I really have a boy as the main figure. Carl isn't even thirteen yet but he gets braces, and what the book explores is all the inner turmoil that goes on in boys that age, which is compounded by his getting braces. Of course only having had two daughters I'm not sure whether I got that totally right, but I let my imagination run a bit wild. Because he's so young and because he has braces there's no real sex of course, but the centerpiece of the book is an erotic orthodontic encounter which I hope captures all the feelings and urges and confusion of being that age and having braces. (It definitely is only for mature audiences, I think.)

I listened to some of the comments about Notwithstanding Braces and tried to develop the character of Carl better, building up to his getting braces and then the erotic encounter. I think it works as a complete story, but it's also only the beginning of his braces journey, and I hope readers will let me know if they want to hear more stories from Carl's journey.

I'll announce it when the book is *officially* published, but maybe you already want to read it....

Author Page at Amazon

I have an Author Page at Amazon now, which I hope will make it easier for readers to find all my different books. Four for now, but I hope to add a fifth soon!

I will add more information to the Author Page soon. The blog already appears there!

I'm surprised none of the books has gotten any Amazon reviews yet. Maybe I need to sell a lot more.

I've made Notwithstanding Braces - An Erotic Orthodontic Encounter! - available on Kindle too.

The only book that's been available on Kindle for a while is Retainer Girl and some readers do buy it. I hope that more readers will try out the other books too now!

Books on Kindle

Two more of the books are now available on Kindle:

Love and Braces, at

Amazon-US
Amazon-UK


The Braced Experience, at
Amazon-US

I think a lot more readers are reading on Kindles (I am!) so maybe more will read these books now. (They're cheaper too....)
