Lotta Bangs

Biography

I’m Aussie, way over 35, thankfully and very happily divorced, and have a wonderful daughter who very occasionally beta-reads for me. A few years ago we had 13 cats; we just lost another, so now only one of those remains. We have added 6 more over the years, including the sweet feral ragdoll which is my Facebook avatar. I generally prefer female cats, but have also had some magnificent males. I couldn’t live without cats, just wish their lives were longer.

I’m having a lot of problems adjusting to social media which doesn’t leave me enough time for writing and editing, so I won’t be expanding my web presence any time soon. If you want to know about NEW RELEASES and SPECIALS you will need to FRIEND ME ON FACEBOOK. I have announced coupons to get a new release free here, but apparently nobody reads author biographies.

Of course my books are what you are really interested in. Originally, I wrote a long continuous story, starting at Reacquaintance, told from Ro’s POV. Then when Ro disappeared for a year or so, I had to use Taj to fill in the gaps, and she proved so feisty and interesting, that I added in her back story, starting with Getting to Galen and continuing in The Deep End. After Thxx’s Story, the various POVs continue in the same stream.

I had to break up my huge tomes into installments that could be published separately as I finished editing them. I’m afraid my writing was quite stuffy at first, with convoluted 12- to 15-line sentences, turgid half-page paragraphs, and a lot of pompous pontification and personal political opinion which the story didn’t need. I had to rip out a lot before I could publish. I think the books are greatly improved now.

I was giving away my books for free for most of a year, hoping to develop a fan base quickly, but learned that people don’t value what is free. Though over 20K copies have been downloaded, very few seem to have been read, and even fewer have been reviewed. I was unlucky to attract an ill-wisher who thought it amusing to devalue every one of my few 5-star reviews. Perhaps that put off others from reviewing. Certainly, without good reviews, few readers cared to buy my books, so if you have enjoyed them, I really would appreciate a short review.

With the next book, The Power of Art, I will be doubling all my prices, so they’ll never be cheaper than they are now.

I believe that I am the only person writing Utopian books today, though mine are nothing like the political satires of yesteryear. My books are based on the power of love to bring out the best in everybody, to develop their souls and help them to evolve into higher beings.

Ro started Galen, and she, Taj and their men lead their people to make Galen a true Utopia which reaches out to the stars. Cat lovers will adore Brinna, my sentient sabretooth, though we have intelligent dogs and dinosaurs too.

Though you couldn’t call my series a space opera, I do have a space battle planned, probably the cutest ever written, but that is still a way off. I really will have to buckle down and get more books edited and published so I can write some more.

Smashwords book reviews by Lotta Bangs

  • Charity Begins at Home on March 30, 2012

    Wow! This is the first brother/sister story I’ve ever read. No wonder it’s such a hot niche. Great job. Loved it. You omitted a ‘the,’ ‘jetting’ should be ‘getting’, ‘at’ => ‘and’, & there’s an excess ‘and’; fix those and the editing will be perfect.
  • Found Out on March 30, 2012

    This is so hot. I am surprised at how it affected me. I never would have touched any member of my family as we didn’t share the trust and support shown here and in Charity. The father protects his son while sharing magnificent sex with him, and the mother was definitely an idiot. Fix these errors please: she and I specifically getting together, => her and my; for a is extraneous; dis => did; by => my.
  • Birthday Girl on April 14, 2012

    This is really well written, the language fresh, easy and appropriate to the age of the protagonists. Tammy is delightful, taking charge of her own sex education and her brother sweet, realistic and grateful for her attentions. There is genuine feeling and caring between them too and their innocent play makes this story very erotic. Fix these small errors to make it even better. pussy or as you as always call => pussy or as you always call;; anxious to hear the answer my next question => answer to my next;; is really a turning me on => is really turning me on;; fingers back and forth along slit => forth along her slit;; as if she was experiencing a mild earthquake => as if she were experiencing;; to stay and extra week => to stay an extra week;; gave Jonathan few hundred dollars => gave Jonathan a few.
  • Dark Desire on Sep. 25, 2012

    This was erotic, romantic, sweet and very enjoyable. Both characters gripped the emotions and held this reader. Minor typos: lust soaked > lust-soaked;; laid > lay;; failing > falling;; womb > vagina;; 90% of readers get the PDF version which does not get the cover picture unless you input it to the Word version: > Insert > Picture > From File. You can put it in on the next edition along with corrections.
  • The Giving Plague on Nov. 07, 2012

    Wow, I never thought to find myself in your company, Sir. Your science was superb as always, but much as I enjoy heavy science, I was tired when I read it and eager to stop after 3 or 4 pages. I persevered, and it was worth the effort. As I see it, most people choose literature here for a bit of light reading, and those wouldn’t get through the turgid beginning. I’ve been a long time fan, and even named the sentient sabre tooth in my series after you. Thanks for the freebies. You left 3 edit errors: superfluous ‘only’ and ‘a’, and missed the ‘to’ in ‘wont do’.
  • The Bundle on March 26, 2013

    A lovely little read with a warning for starry eyed young brides to think of the unthinkable possibilities and plan their lives more carefully. Heartwarming, literate and well edited. My only quibble is that the adverb ‘gently” should go before or after the verb, not break up an infinitive.
  • Second Honeymoon on March 26, 2013

    Very unusual and interesting premise. Keggar is a real world with real problems which its people solve in a very pragmatic unsentimental fashion. I adore Eileen—her growth develops naturally, the hormonal explanation makes a lot of sense and even partly explains why our own politicians are such dickheads. Very enjoyable and satisfying story. The writing is a tiny bit stilted, compared to that in the others I’ve read by this author. Perhaps a revision after 6 months would help smooth that out? I’d also love to see the cover pics inside the PDF.
