#INTERVIEW: Alexander "Monstar" Raymond Talks Femonsters' Rise With First Comics News

Monstar_Interview_Promo1

Countess Dracula, Lady Frankenstein, The Beastress...these are some of the characters you'll meet in the upcoming RISE OF THE FEMONSTERS comic book by Alexander "Monstar" Raymond.

Monstar is currently raising money via Kickstarter to complete the action/horror comic. A homage to Hammer Horror, Universal Monsters, and Marvel's Legion of Monsters, RISE OF THE FEMONSTERS features a gang of monsters battling it out for a mystic ornament that contains the secrets of life and death.

When talking about RISE, Monstar said it contained "A lot of action. I want this to feel like a thrill ride. I knew If I were going to make any type of impression and get people talking, I needed to come out swinging. The first draft was overwhelming. I had to work on the pacing to instill more character development and give the reader a chance to breathe. But, yeah, issue one should come with seatbelts."

Congratulations Mike Moz

Monstar_MikeMoz_001

AVN has announced the Hall of Fame class for 2021, and I am pleased to see that one of the inductees is Mike Moz. Like many others who have achieved success in this industry, I owe a lot to Mike.

When I started in Adult Entertainment back in 2004, Moz connected with me, and after some time of conceptualizing, we created the public relations company, Star Factory PR.

For the next several years, we made it a point to imprint ourselves in everything related to this industry. Star Factory PR has gone on to become one of the most successful publicity firms in Adult Entertainment.

Moz has gone on to prove he is more than an unparalleled public relations specialist. From his work as an agent, producer, director, talent coordinator, strategist, and other titles, he has been able to work in all facets of the industry and do it successfully.

I have been fortunate to have a prosperous career in Adult Entertainment, and for starting all that, I thank Mike Moz.

While the days of drivin' and jivin' throughout the valley are behind us as these days Mike is busy running an empire, and I'm working from a reclusive state, this cat knows if he needed me, I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Congratulations Moz, I already knew you were a Hall of Famer; AVN just caught up.

#PROTIP: Marketing On Facebook For Adult Stars - Time Waste

Star-Factory-PR-Facebook-PR-Marketing-Adult-Stars

Here is the number one tip for adult stars wanting to establish a strong presence on Facebook - it’s a waste of time. Sure, set up a page so you have some type existence on there. But at the end of the day, investing any time and effort to cultivate a following on it will eventually be a waste of time.

Why? The Facebook Team is notorious for using a separate standard for adult stars than the general populace. I am quite aware of the written Facebook rules violations and adhere to them. Meaning we never post anything more than what you would see on the Victoria’s Secret or Sports Illustrated official pages. But even then, you could are cited for violations. The Page that you have worked so hard on to propagate Likes, could easily be deleted, for no justifiable reason. It has happened before, it happens everyday.  

Posts of fully clothed women are cited for “Terms of Use” violations. Like this one:
Facebook Double Standard


Apparently, according to the Facebook Team, this image is not acceptable:

You uploaded a photo that violates our Terms of Use, and this photo has been removed. Facebook does not allow photos that attack an individual or group, or that contain nudity, drug use, violence, or other violations of the Terms of Use. These policies are designed to ensure Facebook remains a safe, secure and trusted environment for all users, including the many children who use the site.

Really…? But these are ok?

Victoria's Secret

Screen Shot 2015-03-07 at 11.09.18 AM
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit

(Note: in both cases, the Pages are 'Verified' by Facebook)

I have no issue of beautiful women only slightly covering their nipples as they are holding their bare breasts, but the double standard is obvious.

So, you can be as cautious as you like, but as long as Facebook and its “Team” continue to use a separate set of rules due to the occupation that you have chosen, then it’s waste of your time. There are other social media outlets out there.
