Personal thoughts on “Confessions of My Nephew”

Confessions cover updated 437x700This was the one that started it all. (Well… seriously started it all, anyway.) My first leap into actually attempting to become an established erotica author. I can’t begin to count the number of lessons learned in creating this story and setting it free to fly.

This actually isn’t the first story of mine to get published. That dubious honor actually goes to “Watch Me, Daddy” (later re-titled  “Craving His Attention”), the first in the “Angel Falls Library Files” series which I submitted to Smashwords directly. But “Confessions of My Nephew” was the first story I sat down and wrote for the purpose of trying to get published. And boy, was it a freaking mess when I finished writing and submitting it! Not so much the story itself, but the format and style was probably about as “amateur” as you can get.

The CEO of Boruma Publishing, who the story was eventually handed to, painstakingly went through the story and cleaned it up, correcting the uncountable formatting and styling mistakes, as well as offered re-wordings throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed this collaboration, as every few days or so she would send me another chapter she got done working on, and I watched my roughly written tale gradually transform into a much more comprehensive piece of prose. I learned very valuable lessons along the way as well through her examples of what a good published story should actually look like. I will admit, there were a few times I felt a bit of trepidation reading though her changes, thinking, “You know, this really doesn’t sound like me.” But then I thought, well, that’s probably the point. LOL! It wasn’t really SUPPOSED to sound like me, it was supposed to sound like the main character Stacy, as told through her perspective. Today I might not have accepted quite so much of the re-writes, keeping it a bit more to my style of writing, but overall I am extremely pleased with the final results.

As for the story itself, I’m sure it doesn’t quite follow the “standard” (if there is such a thing) taboo/incest tale. (Actually, I hope NONE of my stories do.) I am a bit surprised at times that I haven’t gotten at least a comment or two lamenting the fact that Derrick and his mother never did end up getting together sexually. I certainly considered the option as I was writing it, and I left open the possibility of a sequel where that avenue could be explored, but this particular tale was very much Stacy’s story! Her self-discovery, her hidden desires, her re-evaluations about her own morality. (Which she considered was loose enough to begin with the way it was.) I also found the juxtaposition of Rebecca’s conventionality against the free-thinking mindset of her sister Stacy a fascinating contrast. Were Rebecca to had actually ended up being sexually intimate with her son in this particular story, that contrast would have been vastly diluted, if not eliminated altogether. In spite of their differences, Stacy loved her sister just the way she was, and I didn’t want to paint Stacy as someone who would just set out to transform her sister into a different version of herself. It was a much more titillating (and believable) concept to portray Stacy as someone who would say, “If I had a son like Derrick who I knew was hot for me, this is what I would do!”

Plus, Rebecca’s “unattainability” was a huge part of the sexual draw that Derrick felt for his mother. Had Derrick actually fulfilled his illicit desire to be intimate with her, the relationship he would have “lost” with her wouldn’t have been worth what he would have gained. Stacy was his perfect “outlet”. Being able to maintain his existing relationship with his mother while still indulging in his fantasies about her.

wicked-thingI also thoroughly enjoyed incorporating the concept of “dreams” in this story. From personal experience, I know how ‘erotic’ dreams can be at times, how sometimes they can tease and haunt you for days, weeks, sometimes even years afterwards. Anything can happen in dreams, no matter how unrealistic or absurd. Some of them may not even make any sense, yes still send a thrill rushing through you unlike any “real” experience ever could. I’ve included the concept of dreams in a number of my Angel Falls series, and will most likely focus on them in many additional stories.

I didn’t intend it this way, but this story very much gradually transformed into an unconventional “love story” between Stacy and Derrick. I loved that concept! As the scenes progressed they found themselves in love with each other in a way very few people could ever comprehend. And to me, that was even more of a “titillation” factor than it would have been had Derrick and his mother actually ended up being intimate with each other, and quite possibly leaving Stacy out in the cold. I loved exploring that avenue, and felt it put a unique exclamation mark on an already sexually exciting story. It was also a prime example of how more often than not a story usually ends up writing itself at some point.

For me, this story contains everything a “taboo” story should include. The shock of discovering one’s own lewd thoughts, the guilt of realizing your own excitement by them, coming to terms with the fact that you are not “normal” to most people, and finding an acceptance with someone who shares the same desires as you do. It also includes one aspect I try to include in most of my stories, and that’s one of eventual self-acceptance of one’s own feelings and desires. And even though it’s not “normal”, what you feel, what you have, and what you do works for you, and what other people think really doesn’t matter.

And of course lots of hot sex in the process. 😉

For me, this was a fantastic “leap” into the world of serious erotic storytelling. The thrill of seeing the story develop into a readable tale, receiving the design for the cover, and actually seeing it listed among a plethora of other delightful taboo tomes is an experience that can’t be described. Perhaps someday I might attempt a sequel to this story, or maybe winkeven a series based on other confessions to “Aunt Stacy”. One of the main things this book has taught me is there are always possibilities. 🙂

Want MORE of Angel Falls??

peek nudeAs another prelude to the release of book 7 of The Angel Falls Library Files, I’ve put together a new Tumblr blog entitled “Life in Angel Falls”.

This blog is designed to be a companion piece to the Angel Falls series, containing snippets and short vignettes based heavily on characters and events from the Angel Falls Library Files, and occasionally from some of my other titles as well, inspired by some of the erotic images I come across on Tumblr and other online sources.

Containing teasers of unwritten stories, side stories, extensions of stories, and sometimes excerpts from stories already released, this blog is presented as a “peek” into the secret notes kept by assistant librarian Paige Turner as she continues her ongoing journey into incestuous discoveries among the residents and students of the quaint little college town of Angel Falls.

If there’s a naughty little taboo secret nearby, Paige will surely find it. 😉

real life disappoints-masturbate to tumblrIn reality, this is more or less a venue for me to help keep my writing skills sharp, and will hopefully end up giving fans of the series a little more to help fuel their imaginations inbetween releases of our books. Right now there are only a handful of entries in the blog, but it will be added to on a fairly frequent basis.

Book 7 of The Angel Falls Library Files, “Double Dare”, is currently in the final editing stages and should be ready for release in just a matter of days!!

Ohh, and book 8 is already under way. 😉 LOL

 

Our latest release -“The Angel Falls Library Files: The Extended Family Collection” – is now available at Carnal Pleasures and Smashwords!

AF Trilogy 2 cover 2 smallThe Angel Falls Library Files: The Extended Family Collection“, the 2nd trilogy bundle in the Angel Falls series, is now available on Carnal Pleasures, as well as Carnaltopia and Smashwords. It should be available at other outlets as well soon.

This collection contains books 4, 5 and 6 of the ongoing Angel Falls series, “Tattletale“, “Seduction of the Shrew“, and “Forbidden Incentives“.

This is a prelude to the release of our upcoming book 7, “Double Dare“. Stay tuned… 😉

Also, on a side note, more of my titles are currently available once again on Smashwords. Even more will be available shortly. 🙂

Angel Falls returns to Amazon

censoredSometimes the good folks at Boruma Publishing just amaze the shit out of me.

Going through various channels, the first four books of The Angel Falls Library Files, “Craving His Attention“, “Sharing Secrets“, “Give and Take“, and “Tattletale“, are once again gracing the pages of the ever-popular Kindle section of Amazon’s website. (The links for each can be found on each book’s individual page.) Books 5 and 6 are expected there shortly.

I have rather mixed feelings about this…While I applaud Boruma’s efforts and abilities, it is, after all, Amazon. “Feeding the beast” is still somewhat distasteful to me, considering the way Amazon treats many individual authors. Plus the fact that, even though these titles managed to slip through despite their EXTREMELY taboo nature, descriptions and excerpts had to be “adjusted” to hide that fact, which in effect means that readers really won’t know what they’re getting until they actually buy the title, and readers who actually DO want titles that extremely taboo still won’t be able to find it unless totally by accident.

In any case, there they are for those folks who are helplessly addicted to Amazon’s nifty little “Buy now with one click” button. I would still much rather readers buy my books through other venues for various reasons, not the least of which is that the royalty percentage I receive through Amazon sales is atrocious due to the various channels these books need to go through. (I receive the highest royalty percentage on sales through Carnal Pleasures and Carnaltopia.) But, for those who insist on only going the Amazon route as their source for smutty entertainment, well… a sale is a sale, I suppose. I just won’t get paid as much.

By the way, the debut title of my love, Lilly-Rose Young, “Pushing Boundaries“, is also available on Amazon.

Blowing the Horns Of Others

How’s THAT for a dirty-sounding blog title?? 😉

late night surfingSome of you may have noticed a new little blue box at the top of the page. (The one labeled “Artistic Endeavors“.) If you hover over it or click on it, you’ll find a whole bunch of little goodies behind it. (Or soon will, anyway.)

In an attempt to make this web page a little more than just about my ebooks (although that WILL remain a major focus) and more about “taboo erotica” in general, I’ve designed these pages to direct people to creative works by others who share my same penchant for the delightfully forbidden and deliciously taboo. 🙂 This project is still in its VERY early stages -in fact some of the pages don’t have anything in them as of yet- but as I find the time to work on it, it will be filled with links to sites that will delight your senses in one way or another. 🙂 Stay tuned and keep checking.. These pages will be added to on a regular basis.

In a couple other noteworthy updates, I will soon be releasing the second trilogy of The Angel Falls Library Files, which will contain books 4, 5 and 6. It will be a prelude to the UPCOMING BOOK 7 of the series, which my gorgeous and talented wife and I are currently working diligently on. It’s actually my first attempt at doing a story with a brother-sister theme, and to be honest I felt a bit of trepidation about it. It’s not that the concept doesn’t turn me on (it does!! LOL!!), but I wasn’t sure if I could do as much justice to this particular relationship dynamic as I had with previous ones. As with most of my stories though, this one eventually started taking on a life of its own, and I’m actually quite pleased with the way it turned out. 🙂 The final draft is done, just in the process now of picking nits. Look for some excerpts to be released soon!

Lilly-Rose and I are also doing some brainstorming on a project that we plan on releasing as a stand-alone story, not part of the Angel Falls series. I don’t want to give TOO much away too soon,  but it involves a whole immediate family scenario, where past, present and future intermingle. There are many facets and many levels of interaction, and is easily our most ambitious project to date. It wouldn’t surprise me if this one won’t be ready for release until the beginning of next year. But we’re both very excited about it. 🙂

Stop the presses!!

News, news, and more news!! Jeez, where do I start?

Spinning Heads complete cover 1 500x800lWell, let’s begin with the fact that my latest offering, “Spinning Heads-The Complete Collection” is NOW AVAILABLE on Carnal Pleasures and Carnaltopia! This includes all five of my original series of short erotic stories, along with a couple of additional naughty treats:

Lucy-original cover 1 complete 500x800This particular collection includes the ORIGINAL version of my short story “Lucy”, which was considered just a little too “taboo” for most distributors and ebook sellers to carry. The version previously released for publication was modified (much to my chagrin) in order to provide it broader availability. I finally reverted it back to its original version for this collection. (So CENSOR THIS, assholes!!)

Happens Every Time cover complete 1 500x800This collection also includes an additional bonus SIXTH story written more recently, entitled “It Happens Every Time”. This story takes a bit of a different tone than the rest of the series, but probably presents the “cuckold/hotwife” fantasy in a rather unique light, as seen from the perspective of the “extra” male in this equation. It’s a bit of a heartbreaker, but still plenty of hot sex action. 😉

This collection, by the way, is a Carnal Pleasures/Carnaltopia EXCLUSIVE! You won’t find this complete collection, or the bonus material in it, anywhere else.

This is also probably a good time to introduce my BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW Home/Welcome page. Yep… went out a got me a new doormat. 🙂 This page is a little more versatile than the one I put together previously, allowing me to add a little more content around the edges, and I think it looks a bit sharper also. My old front page is still active, for those of you who still have the link, but if you click the link at the top, it’ll take you to my freshly painted foyer.Just be sure to wipe your feet, or better still, take off your shoes and stay a while. 😀

Ohhh, and HEY!! I’M FAMOUS! I’M FAMOUS!!

ITDIO psp cover 5 reverse 9 500x800Okay, maybe not quite… But I DID notice recently that I currently have not just one, but TWO of my titles prominently displayed on the Carnal Pleasures Top 20 LIST!! My stand-alone story “If the Door Is Open” is Irresistible Moms psp cover 1 500x800bringing up the rear at number 20, and my anthology “The Irresistible Moms Collection” is dangling at the number 13 spot! Not quite the NYT bestsellers list, but hey, I’m tickled pink! Thanks to my many readers there who make me feel that it’s all worthwhile. 🙂

 

 

Personal Thoughts on “Mother Pushes the Swing”

FORREST YOUNG - Mother Pushes the Swing 7-retouched smallThere are so many aspects to this story, and this topic, I’m not even really sure where to begin. It is, after all, two distinct topics.

My first wife and I were rather heavily involved in our local swingers community. It was something we both desired, something we both enjoyed, and that we were both very much on the same page about throughout most of our marriage. In our later years, we also explored the concept of polyamory. The main difference between the two is that one focuses on the “physical”, or sexual, involvement with multiple people, the other focuses more on the “emotional” involvement with multiple people.

One would think that in both of these groups, open-mindedness would be flowing in abundance. In practice, I have found this to be not so much the case. In fact, it often amazed me at how much closed-minded attitudes ran rampant within these so-called sexually-open communities. Even among these two particular groups, they seemed at odds with each other. Swingers just couldn’t seem to wrap their minds around people who could form such deep emotional bonds and even committed relationships with more than one person, and as a whole, ployamorists found the concept of purely sexual involvements with a multitude of people distasteful, if not outright disgusting. How odd, I thought, that these two groups of “non-mainstream” lifestyles weren’t a whole lot more tolerant of each other.

“Mother Pushes the Swing” is the second full-length erotica story that I wrote. In it, I decided to add a whole other aspect to the mix, incest. It was brought about through a simple question that I not only asked myself privately, but was on very rare occasions

tumblr_nz1dogqkhp1ukxp1jo1_500

brought up (in whispers, of course) amongst swingers themselves: “What would you do if you discovered that a close relative -a sibling, a parent(s), aunt, uncle, cousin, or whatever- was also into swinging?” In my story, not only did I introduce the concept of discovering one’s parents were swingers, but I placed the parents among the same swingers group as the offspring.

I imagine in reality, most swingers would have the same initial reaction that my main male character, Alan, had… shock and a distaste for the notion that bordered on disgust. In fact, I’m sure most swingers clubs would not even want the concept introduced within their group. Either one or the other -or both- would be asked to leave.

So much for open-mindedness.

In my story, the interaction between swinging and an incestuous situation not only ended up being tolerated, but thoroughly enjoyed by not only the participants but everyone else around them. I highly doubt such a mixing of the two in real life would result in such a lasciviously delicious outcome. But placing characters within that situation sure was a lot of fun! And it allowed me to explore one possible outcome to that ever-nagging question at times, “What if…?”

 

For those of you wondering just how much of this story is actually based on real life, let’s just say that while I’ve had somewhat extensive experience in the swinging lifestyle, with incestuous experiences, ehhh, not so much. I was somewhat amazed that the situation didn’t happen more often than it did. In all of our years within the swinging community, I can only recall one instance where a brother and sister discovered themselves at one of the gatherings, and I was not familiar with either of them, so I have no clue how that resolved itself.

Personally, how would I react if I discovered at one point that my parents were swingers? Well, I would certainly have been shocked, but I would not have been disgusted. I could even see myself being okay with all of us involved in the same group or club. Would I, like my character Alan, have developed a sexual attraction to my mother in such a situation? Highly unlikely. While my mother was not an unattractive woman, there was just no serious sexual attraction there on my part. I do not personally attribute this to the fact that she was my mother. There are multitudes of women out there who I am not sexually attracted to who are also not my mother. (For the record, I have no sisters, so I really can’t speak much to that aspect.)

 

So, how did this fascination, this… ‘titillation’, with incestuous situations even begin for me? Well, you can indirectly blame my first wife for that. Our predilection for sexual role play led us into quite a few aspects of forbidden situations. One day the thought just kind of hit me while I was looking at her, “You know, if this woman was my mother, I’d still want to fuck her brains out.” The idea just kind of took off from there, and being the adventurous sort, my first wife was quite accommodating. After a time, that thought just kind of filtered off onto other women as well. (If some of them actually knew what I was thinking while I was fucking them, they probably would have threw up in my face.)

The only “direct” involvement I ever had in an incestuous situation was a one-time-only threesome I had with my first wife and her older sister. (And let’s just say that it wasn’t a situation where the two of them only focused on me.) While it was definitely an exciting experience, surprisingly the “taboo” aspect of it wasn’t the foremost thought in my mind at the time, at least not constantly. For the most part, they were two women I found extremely attractive who I enjoyed the hell out of being with, and who I liked watching enjoy each other. And even though it only happened the one time, it was surprisingly free of any awkwardness whenever we were all together afterwards.

 

The only other time that even came close to an incestuous situation was when I happened to come across a profile of my cousin’s daughter and her first husband on a local online swingers site. Technically that would make her my second cousin, which in most legal circles wouldn’t really be considered incestuous (at least not enough to get you arrested), but considering my cousin and I were as close as brothers growing up, emotionally she was more like a niece than a second cousin. We were aware of each other, but never ran across each other at any parties or social gatherings that were swinger-related. Would I have fucked her if she had given any indication she was interested? In a heartbeat! Am I sorry it never happened? Naah, not really. Unlike the situation with my sister-in-law, that situation probably would have contained more than its share of awkwardness.

“Mother Pushes the Swing” is a situation of swinging mixed with incest to the extreme. In a way, in spite of its eventual conclusion, one of the aspects I tried to point out was that even among those who consider themselves sexually open, their “open-mindedness” does have its limits. It would be nice to imagine a world in which this sort of situation would have such an orgasmically happy ending, but I fear that such is not the case.

 

But then, that’s what erotic fantasy stories are for. 🙂

Mind Games (excerpt from “Seduction of the Shrew”) – #MasturbationMonday

masturbation-monday-badge-smallReverse psychology.. It is often an extremely effective means in getting someone to do something they wouldn’t ordinarily do. “Manipulation” often has deeply negative connotations, a reputation that s probably well-earned, but like most things in life, manipulation can be used for good or used for evil. Maybe even on rare occasions, a little of both at the same time.

This week’s #MasturbationMonday entry comes from my recently released title, “Seduction of the Shrew: Book 5 of The Angel Falls Library Files“. In this short scene, both Adam and Phyllis gradually ‘transform’ into something they ordinarily are not: Adam becomes the manipulator, and Phyllis, who is a master at pushing people’s buttons, finds herself deeply on the receiving end. In the end, everybody wins, but first… let’s dance. 😀


 

“Adam, you startled the life out of me!” Phyllis exclaimed after a deep gasp.

Adam paused for a couple of seconds to admire the cleavage peeking out from the top of her robe before responding. “I’m sorry, Phyllis, I thought you were Paige for a second.”

Phyllis looked at him suspiciously, finding it hard to swallow that he could mistake her mature form for Paige’s youthful figure, although a part of her was wanting to believe that it was possible. “Do you normally just walk in on your daughter when she’s wearing nothing but a flimsy bathrobe?”

Adam declined to respond, simply standing there and admiring his mother-in-law’s form. Phyllis’ face grew accusingly curious as he stood there just gazing at her in silence. Adam’s lips sported just the slightest of a grin as his eyes seemed intently focused on her. A thrill seemed to tickle her stomach as he folded his arms across his chest and he leaned against the door frame.

“Let me see,” he finally said.

“See what?”

“What’s underneath the robe. Show me.”

Phyllis’ mouth dropped open at his outrageous audacity. “I am certainly not going to…” she started to say in response to his indecent request, but then stopped. Her body stiffened completely, unable to even breathe as she fixated on the look in his eyes. He was undeniably sincere in his request to see her naked. Suddenly all the images and events from the last couple of days came rushing back into her mind. The grab in the kitchen. His piercing stares. Paige masturbating on the sofa. The adoring looks he gave Paige as they sat together on the sofa.

The adoring looks… Suddenly her mind fixated on that. More than just adoration… appreciation! Attraction. One might also even say desire.

A hollow feeling started to swell up in Phyllis’ gut as they stood there staring at each other. The look in her son-in-law’s eyes was almost hypnotizing. He was genuinely anticipating seeing her naked. And even more surprising, she found herself wanting to show him! She ached to see that look of appreciation in his eyes. That look of desire. How long had it been since any man looked at her that way?

The fact that this was her son-in-law flowed completely out of her brain. The fact that she was married totally dismissed. All she wanted was to be admired by this man. To be appreciated. To be desired. At that moment nothing else existed.

Phyllis sat the clothes she was holding down on the bed. Adam’s eyes lit up like a fire as Phyllis reached for the belt holding the front of the robe flimsily in place. tumblr_nyscckz9su1v02b1bo1_1280As the front gave way, she reached up to her shoulders and peeled the robe back. An unmistakable look of delight emanated from Adam’s face as his mother-in-law’s breasts were fully revealed to him. Soaking in his gaze of admiration, Phyllis let the robe fall completely to the floor.

As Adam feasted on the sight he’d fantasized about seeing for almost 25 years, he took note that while Paige may have inherited her grandmother’s blonde hair, his wife most certainly got her breasts from Phyllis. While they sagged slightly more than Brenda’s did, they were still incredibly full and bulbous for a woman of her age. In fact, Adam was amazed at how very little sag there was on her voluptuous body. His cock started to stiffen involuntarily as he took her all in. Even as a teenager he entertained lascivious fantasies about this striking older woman, years before she even became his mother-in-law. Age had robbed her of none of her sexual appeal.

Phyllis stood there taking in his lewd stare, waiting for his next move, her face hardening in preparation to halt any further advances. An expression Adam fully recognized. His memory immediately recalled his earlier discussions with Paige.

“Well… That’s enough of that now, isn’t it?” Adam said as he stood completely upright. Taking one last quick glance, he backed away from the doorway and turned to walk toward his bedroom.

Anticipation (excerpt from “Give and Take”) – #Taboo2sday

bloghop_tallIn this week’s entry for TabooTuesday, I again take a trip back to Angel Falls. In my very first entry, taken from book 3, “Give and Take”, I focused on the loving relationship between father and daughter involving Paige and her father Adam. Her friend Natalie, however, has a yearning for a rather different type of relationship with her father, one which takes on a much more ‘disciplinary’ tone. With Paige’s assistance, Natalie’s realization of this much darker fantasy comes to fruition in the most erotic of ways, as the following excerpt demonstrates:


 

A long moan escaped out of Natalie’s mouth as she orgasmed uncontrollably from the last swat. A part of her tried to hold it back, considering the absolute inappropriateness of having an orgasm in front of her father, yet the thought of cumming in front of him made her cum even harder.

Jeffery watched in amazement at his daughter’s reaction, his hand again resting on her bare ass, feeling her body clench up across his lap.

Natalie felt her father’s hand resting atop her stinging ass cheek, her body slightly trembling uncontrollably. Anticipation washed over her as she felt his hand start to gently caress her dark, supple skin. Her mind swirled in a mixture of fear, yet an overwhelming craving, of what he would do next. In addition, she felt the growing bulge in his sweatpants pressing up against her stomach as she laid across his lap.

Jeffry felt his cock harden against her stomach in response to the luxurious feel of his daughter’s bare skin against his hand. His heart beat wildly as he contemplated his next move, gliding his hand between his daughter’s thighs and over her sopping wet opening. He glided his middle finger over the lubricated lips of her pussy. Feeling how wet his daughter was almost caused his cock to start tumblr_nx38cn7qpd1ui41juo1_500convulsing in orgasm right there and then, but he somehow managed to suppress the urge.

“You’re wet,” he stated obviously in a stern, fatherly voice. “Is this actually getting you excited?”

“I’m sorry, Daddy,” Natalie pleaded, her voice trembling as much as her body was. “I didn’t mean to.”

“That’s just naughty, Natalie,” Jeffry said, trying to keep his voice stern, but his own excitement started to lace his words. “Do you know what we do to naughty girls in this house, Natalie?”

“No, Daddy,” she replied, her voice still trembling. “Please! I won’t do it anymore!”

Jeffry found himself shocked at how excited his daughter’s pleading was making him. It excited him even further knowing that despite her pleading, this really was what she wanted. She wanted her daddy to discipline her. She wanted her daddy to touch her. She wanted her daddy to take her.

A New Reflection (excerpt from “If the Door Is Open…) #Taboo2sday

bloghop_tallOn this weeks entry for TabooTuesday, I share with you an excerpt from what has been consistently my most popular story, “If the Door Is Open…”, where for the first time Abby sees herself through the eyes of a young admirer. An admirer who happens to be her son!

To keep in line with the ‘guidelines’ of the TabooTuesday blog hop, I am only posting a portion of the entire scene. As a whole, this scene is definitely my favorite one in the entire story, and personally this is one of the most erotic scenes I think I’ve ever written. But, you can be the judge of that. 😉


 

She looked at her voluptuous full-figured form… her wide hips, fleshy forearms and thighs, her tummy bulging, slight traces of cellulite and stretch marks sprinkled around her mid-section. Her legs were thick, but shapely as they tapered down to her feet, and she even found them impressive with the right set of high heels to accentuate them. Her most redeeming physical feature, of course, at least in her own eyes, was her breasts. Although they sagged a bit with age, they were still rather buoyant, and protruded out full and firm on her chest like halves of watermelons, her nipples still setting quite high. Her entire adult life she almost never faced any shortage of attention on her breasts, wanted or unwanted. Especially when wearing anything that showed even the slightest amount of cleavage.

She stood there before the mirror trying to take in the entire package of the image that stood facing her, both the good and the bad. Riding the tail end of her 30’s and being some forty pounds or so overweight, at least according to all the charts she looked up, she was keenly aware that she would not be gracing many magazine covers anytime soon. Her husband had always made her feel attractive and desirable, though, no matter what her weight.

She stood there wondering, however, if the teenage friends of her son, or even her son himself, would find her just as desirable as she appeared now, naked and exposed as she was, flaws and all. Then it suddenly dawned on her that her son actually had seen her like this, not standing naked as she was now, but certainly exposed, and he still not only found her attractive, but was actually sexually aroused.

Focused on the image in the mirror, Abby placed her hands on her thighs, gliding them up around the border of her mound, circling her rounded stomach for a moment, then bringing them up underneath her breasts. In the mirror, she could see her nipples harden as she tried to imagine seeing what Shawn saw, the same breasts, the same stomach, the same hips, the same legs, the same arms, the same hands. She squeezed her breasts, running her palms over the nipples, trying to imagine his excitement looking at those breasts.

Her heart raced and her pussy moistened thinking that this is the same body that her son not only saw, but the same body that gave him an erection, the same body that he… Yes, she allowed herself to think it… The same body he jacked off to.

Secret Desires Unleashed (excerpt from “Anna”) – #MasturbationMonday

masturbation-monday-badge-smallWhen secret desires begin to surface, sometimes they’re just too strong to ignore. This is the case with a woman named “Anna“, who once she accidentally discovers the sexual power she possesses over men, can’t fight the desire to use that power to her full advantage.

In this week’s entry for MasturbationMonday, we peek in on Anna’s late-night thoughts as she explores her new-found desires, which leads her to exploring her aching pussy in the family bathroom:


 

Then again, another part of me wanted him to make love to me. No… to fuck me. A sense of guilt flowed through me as I realized I wanted to feel his cock drive into me as I recalled the feeling I had on stage, thinking about all those men getting excited over me, wanting to fuck me. I wanted to think about letting those men fuck me as Rod plunged his cock deep and hard into my pussy. And then I pictured Warren, the look of lust and appreciation on his young, handsome face. I really wanted to picture Warren fucking me while I was being fucked by my husband. I looked over at Rod, his back to me, and I realized almost with a sense of despair that it wasn’t going to happen. My pussy was getting soaked all over again thinking of Warren and all those other men, and I desperately hoped that Rod was indeed sleeping so he wouldn’t be sensing my excitement.

After a few long, lingering moments, when I was convinced that he was indeed asleep, I slowly and quietly sneaked out of bed and made my way back to the bathroom. The room still smelled of pussy. I sat down on the toilet lid and masturbated, something I hadn’t done in I don’t know how long. My pussy was desperately aching and in need of relief though, and despite the guilt I felt about Rod, the overwhelming feelings of desire I was experiencing were even stronger. I knew if I stayed in bed the feelings and images would just linger all night long, and the thought of that was just unbearable. I so desperately wanted a cock filling up my wet, aching pussy, but I had to make do with my fingers. I fucked myself furiously with my hands while I fantasized about Warren fucking me long and hard on stage in front of all those horny men, then when he was done letting whoever else that wanted to come up on stage and have their turn with me. I fantasized about being fucked over and over again by each and every one of those men who got turned on by me. It was like years and years of secret desires, hidden even to me, were being let loose all at once, and there was no way of stopping it even if I wanted to. And I didn’t want to! I wanted to feel all of those desires to the fullest, let them overtake me, and to give in to them.

I fingered myself to orgasm after orgasm, trying to silence my moans of pleasure as best I could, but I’m sure anyone awake at that time would surely hear me and know what was going on. Rod, the kids, anyone could have caught me, but I kept on masturbating, kept on fantasizing, giving in to my lust and desire and hoping that all were asleep. When I had pretty much exhausted myself, and felt that I had adequately relieved myself enough that I could sleep, I again washed myself up and headed back to bed. The bathroom reeked more of pussy now than it had before, but I figured that would fade by morning, at least I hoped it would. I looked at the clock on the way back to bed and was amazed to discover that I had spent more than an hour in the bathroom. Rod’s soft snoring was reassuring, and I felt relatively relieved that I hadn’t gotten caught.

Why I Will NEVER Become a “Successful” Erotica Author

being a writerThe business of writing erotica is a rather strange animal these days. Perhaps it always has been, but considering I’ve only been a serious contender in this game for the past couple of years, that’s really the only experience I have to draw on. I spend a considerable amount of time pondering on where we are, how we got here, and…probably most importantly…what can we do about it. As is usually the case, the answer to the last question is as varied as the authors it affects. There really is no “one-size-fits-all” solution that will work for each individual author.

A question was posed recently on the Erotic Authors forum on Reddit:

“How profitable are using dedicated adult epublishers for non-Amazon safe kinks?”

A rather excellent question to pose, actually. However, me offering any sort of response personally on that particular forum is usually not a good idea. My viewpoints are not well received there. I’m sure a couple of people from there will follow me here and drag me in front of the tribunal to deliver the obligatory 30 lashes for daring to speak ANYTHING negative about Amazon or the authors who publish on it, but at least I can’t be justifiably accused of “starting a fight” there. (Not that it would actually stop anybody from doing so, of course.)

Truthfully, the short answer to the above posed question is, only moderately so. Let’s face it, the way this erotica writing thing is set up at the moment, I will NEVER expand beyond just the nice little extra “spending money” I receive monthly from my publisher. Admittedly, this is mostly by choice. As much as some people may want to accuse me of playing the “Victim of Amazon” card, it is certainly not what I’m doing, nor have I ever done that. I tell people time and time again, if Amazon works for you, then by all means go that route.

The frustrating thing for me usually is I see author after author after author complaining about how Amazon operates, how they keep getting screwed over by Amazon, how fearful they always are about getting dungeoned or dropped completely by Amazon every time they press the “Publish” button, yet time after time after time the only solutions that are ever given any serious consideration involves continuing to feed the hand that bites them. Because of Amazon’s recent changes to their Kindle Unlimited program, authors of erotica, especially short form erotica, now have to work at least three times as hard to maintain the same amount of money they were earning before these changes. I sympathize completely with those who are so dependent on Amazon when they say, “Well, what else can we do?” Unfortunately, the only answer I can give today is, “Nothing”. The main reason I am not a “victim of Amazon” is that I got in on this erotica writing endeavor shortly after Amazon and many of the other biggies did their erotica purge. I never grew dependent on Amazon’s royalties. Real, honest “victims of Amazon” however are out there. By the hundreds, if not the thousands.

The problem right now is, Amazon makes it too easy. They make it easy for authors to write crap, and they make it easy for readers to buy it. One click to publish, one click to purchase. Their fucking apps are everywhere. They come pre-installed on damn near every computer, every tablet, every smartphone. Do I blame Amazon for this? Fuck no. no orgasm for youShrewd business folk they are, they’ve expertly learned how to profit from convenience. If readers want to buy poorly written erotica, and writers want to produce it, why is that Amazon’s fault?

(And yes, some people will totally rip me a new one for using the words “poorly written erotica”, but honestly, you CANNOT convince me that dozens of ‘so-called’ authors can pump out 5k stories on a daily, or even weekly basis and honestly say that these are anywhere NEAR being considered “quality” work!)

One of the questions asked in the above post is, is there a market big enough to make it worth publishing outside of Amazon? The answer to that easily is, of course there is! If nothing else, Amazon itself has proven that to a fault. The “market” is definitely there. The question is, outside of Amazon, how does an author reach them?

Readers definitely want quality erotica. The problem is, readers don’t want to look that hard to find it. As difficult as it must surely be to try to find diamonds among the dung heaps on Amazon, readers are willing to do that because it’s… everyone say it with me now… “convenient“! One stop, click click click, oh, this one looks like it might be interesting, click to read (hell, they don’t even have to buy the damn thing these days with convenient subscription), read until they’re bored, click click click, wash, rinse, repeat, run out of shampoo. (Sorry.. Idea for a shower scene popped into my head.)

think differentAuthors who publish outside of Amazon (or who want to) need to make it easier for readers to find them. Readers don’t know. All they know is the convenience of Amazon. And this is what trips a lot of authors up when trying to do anything outside the virtual walls of Amazon. This necessitates authors becoming more adept at self-promotion. I’m fortunate enough to have a little bit of background experience in that area. Many authors do not. I understand. What I don’t understand is most authors are soooo willing to take the time and effort to try to learn not only formatting correctly, but also try to figure out all the ‘secret’ ways to work around Amazon’s restrictions, learn keyword usage, unlock SEO strategies, and basically “game the Amazon system”, but yet choose to remain so totally clueless on the best ways to self-promote and refuse to learn how because Amazon will simply do that shit for them if they go exclusive. Well, how’s that working for ya?

At the risk of sounding completely immodest, I am extremely proud of my stories. I never send ANYTHING out unless I am at least moderately satisfied with them, and they tell the story I wish to tell. They are of good quality, many people have bought and read them, and I have received much complimentary feedback from folks who have truly enjoyed them.

So why am I not “successful”? Well, in many ways I am. I write what I want, people have bought and enjoyed them, and I get satisfaction out of putting together a good story written in a quality manner. I can honestly look at my catalog and say, “Hey… I did a damn good job!”

Why am I not making more money? Well, mainly by choice. Not only do I refuse to cater to Amazon’s ridiculous and ever-changing guidelines and strategies, I refuse to spend so much effort trying to cater to people’s laziness. I do know how to write fairly decent promotional pieces and I can point people in the direction to go, but you know the story about horses and water. I will keep trying, though. I’m fully convinced my “audience” is out there. It’s just a matter of figuring out which walls to break down that separates us. Or patiently waiting for the time it takes for that to happen. In the meantime, I’m out nothing but my time, which I spend doing what I like doing anyway, whether I make money at it or not. It would be nice though to be able to spend more time doing it. 🙂

doing what you lovePeople ask me all the time why I don’t just publish what Amazon will accept. Well, then it really wouldn’t be my story now, would it? Sure, I could make money at it. Maybe even make a living at it. But then again I wouldn’t enjoy what I’m doing.

And where is the “success” in that?

The Dark and the Wild and the Different

rebel-all-the-wayOne of the reasons I write… and write about taboo topics in particular… is I have a fascination with why people do some of the things they do. (Sometimes the “why” doesn’t even matter.. The fact that they just do them is often reason enough.) In particular, what compels someone to do something.. or at least want to do something.. so bad that they are willing to break down or totally ignore every social barrier in place to prevent it?

In exploring these concepts, I feel the need to do so unfettered. Uncensored. People come up with so many reasons why I shouldn’t write what I write. How refreshing to come across an article which blows the shit out of some of those compelling (and oftentimes not so compelling) arguments.

I submit today a blog entry I found on the site of Go Deeper Press. I haven’t dug very deep into their website yet, but I fully intend to. In the meantime, here are some excellent words on why writers should be free to express themselves as fully as they wish to, and how censorship can be far more dangerous than it is “protective”, and how NO topic or concept should be “off limits” as far as a writer (or anyone else) expressing themselves:

A Trauma Survivor on Why We’re Anti-Censorship

Go Deeper Press Advertisement: Free Your Fantasies

So here’s a thing. We don’t censor our writers. We never have and we never will, and we feel passionately about this.

When we posted our recent submissions guidelines, we received a rush of messages from erotica authors effectively saying, “We’re so glad you guys are open to submissions again! We so appreciate the way you don’t censor us or tell us what we can or can’t write about.”

You can see from our list, and also from our daily erotica at the Deeper Daily, that we do not censor. In fact, we believe that topics that other publishers consider “taboo” can be the very heart and soul of a work. Some of the erotica/literary porn we’ve published that contains non-consensual or “taboo” sex includes Con, Book 1: You Can Play It Safe When You’re Dead(twincest by yours truly), First by Jacob Louder (sex among young people who are “underage”),Femme Fatale (erotica about dangerous women, some of who commit murder), Squeeze Pantsby Dario Dalla Lasta (one story includes sexual force that is as hot as it is terrifying), and Shameless Behavior (erotic stories of overcoming shame, including, for example, piss play), to name but a few. There are plenty of others to come. What’s more, elements of post-sexual non-consent also exist in my novel Cream: An Erotic Romance, in which consent is explored both for the sake of passion and for the sake of safety and healing. To read an amazing post on Cream and its treatment of consent, check out the wonderful Annabeth Leong, author of the powerful Untouched, who, for us, is an ardent partner in the fight against shame.

[bctt tweet=”I was cured by a taboo fantasy during sex, one that Angela and I shared when we were first lovers.”]

As a woman who suffered sexual abuse in my childhood (this, I don’t remember very well) and sexual shaming in a religious cult (which I do remember, vividly), I was cured by a “taboo” fantasy during sex, one that Angela and I shared when we were first lovers. Playing out the fantasy of teacher and child with a lover I deeply trusted cured me in the bedroom. In real life, it would have been an insufferable act, but in fantasy, it was profoundly compassionate, so much so that it healed me and brought me into the light. I was able to heal by transforming trauma into trust and play. Finally, I could stay in my self during sex, without feeling like my body had been chopped from my soul.

That night, I was free as a kite, a moon, a sun. I was liberated and loved. I wept because I feltreal.

I tell you this today to show you why we fight on a daily basis to bring fantasy out of the shadows.

Books like Anais Nin’s Incest (containing details of the erotic affair she had with her father) were also an invaluable part of my healing during the time I suffered from PTSD. Without that book, I might not have had the courage to start leaving my shame behind.

Many other sexual trauma survivors will tell you similar stories. And many will tell you the exact opposite—that they cannot read non-consensual sex, that it is triggering for them. We are alldifferent, all worthy of respect, and this must be acknowledged. (A book I will always be grateful for is The Survivor’s Guide to Sex by Traci Haines. If you are a sexual trauma survivor, I deeply recommend it.) It should also be recognized that many readers who haven’t suffered trauma can find darker fantasies liberating and transformative. So we will never say to you, “This must not be imagined.” We will never say to you, “This must not be art.” And we will always warn you when our erotica becomes “taboo,” so that you can freely decide whether you want to read it, just in case it is triggering for you.

That said, check out this awesome discussion by our friends the Pillow Talk writers on “taboo” topics in erotica.

We’re proud to say that we don’t censor.

And we never will.

Love always,

Lana

Just A Short Little Update…

hands 001We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for a wedding ceremony! We were able to stand and declared our love and devotion to each other in front of a few close family and friends on an 80 degree fall day in a beautiful park on top of a hill two weeks ago today. In spite of a ‘minor’ little glitch in getting the paperwork taken care of, my Lilly-Rose now has a legal claim to me. 😀 (Ball and chain not included, but hey, that might be fun too…)

After way too long a time of everything being put on hold, work on “Seduction of the Shrew”, entry number 5 in the Angel Falls Library Files series, is coming along quite nicely. I put down the basic premise, and my Lily-Rose checks the editing and offers suggestions. I love the collaboration!! (Although I do wish she’d contribute a little more to the sex scenes. She does much better at writing sex scenes than I do. LOL!) Now that all the wedding planning and things like that are over with, we’re able to devote a bit more time to our writing endeavors. If these beginnings are any indication, we are going to come up with some really great stuff in the future! As with most of my stories, this one will go in a few directions I’ve never touched on before.Book 5 - psp cover 2-FLRY 500x800

I’ve been spending a bit of time trying to get my new Tumblr blog back up to the following that my old blog had, but it’s been very slow going. Social media is such a funny and fickle thing, but it seemed with my old blog, the more of a following I hadtumblr sidetrack there, the more attention my web page got. I’m hoping this new blog will follow the same pattern. Right now my Reddit page seems to be the most prevalent gateway to my web pages, which is actually a little surprising to me. But, I’ll gladly take what I can get. LOL.

By the way, for those wanting to sample some excerpts from most of my books, there are now a significant number of them posted on my Tumblr page, which you can find by clicking >here<. They are short excerpts combined with images reblogged from other Tumblr users which happen to fit the scene from the story. It’s actually kind of fun going through images and coming across ones which I think, “Hey, this would go real well with [this scene] from [this book]!” LOL. Another way to keep the creative juices flowing. 🙂 if they only knew

Speaking of Tumblr blogs, my Lilly-Rose is now maintaining three of them. If you like eroticism that is a little more on the romantic, sensual, playful, and sometimes even ‘cute’ side, go check out her blogs, Lilly-Rose Young, A Little Space 4 Me, and Elegant Orgasm. Each one has its own “flavor”, reflecting the various sides of her personality.

As you can probably tell, she definitely keeps my life interesting. 😉

Ownership of our eroticism

computer sex 003Porn… Gotta love it, right?

Well, no, you don’t really “gotta”.. Some people do, and some people don’t. Some people can’t even agree on what “porn” actually is. And really, that’s okay. Like many things, “porn” can simply be a matter of perspective. As human beings we’re entitled to that.

I’ve been playing around with my Tumblr account quite a lot the last few days. Mainly I use my Tumblr page to try to promote my ebooks. but I also like posting and reblogging things that personally appeal to me. Tumblr is a fantastic arena to do that, as it’s extremely unrestrictive compared to most other social media outlets. Plus, being as “anonymous” as it is, people can be more freely “themselves” there. I love that, seeing what people are really like deep down inside, what they keep hidden from most of the world. (Well, mostly I love it. Some of it, well… ehh..) In any case, it’s incredibly easy to find others of like mind on Tumblr, no matter how “perverted” your mind may happen to be.

Finding “porn” of course is incredibly easy.. Finding GOOD porn, well, that’s another story entirely. For me, most porn is like trying to watch a science fiction movie made in the ’50’s.. It’s cheap, it’s cheesy, most often just gratuitous, and totally unbelievable. That doesn’t make ’50’s sci-fi movies “bad”, it just makes them not good for me.

computer sex (2)Mainly what I look for in “porn”.. and most anything else for that matter.. is something that fuels my imagination. Most porn doesn’t do that. Mainly I question why these people seem to enjoy having sex in so many obviously uncomfortable positions, and WHAT the fuck is the enormous appeal of cumming on a woman’s face??? To me it’s rather gross, but obviously most men (and a fair  number of women) find it appealing. That doesn’t make most porn “bad”… It just makes it not good for me.

What burns the shit out of me is people who think ALL porn is “bad”, and want to eliminate all of it. Including the stuff that fuels my imagination. And I have a reeeeaaaal problem with people who want to take away stuff that fuels my imagination. Or anyone’s imagination.

Ultimately that’s what censorship does.. It stifles imagination. It makes people stop asking questions. It encourages conformity, And worst of all, it just makes sex boring. 🙂 (Well, okay, that’s not WORST of all, but hey, it’s right up there..)

Dr. Marty Klein is my fucking hero.. Seriously!! Very few people can so meticulously cut through bullshit like butter. Dr. Klein is among the best of the best at it. His latest article, dealing with why we watch porn, is as usual right on the mark. Here he squashes the arguments against porn like annoying little insects, but more importantly it encourages people to claim ownership of their own eroticism. And don’t let anyone take it away from you!

Why does anyone look at porn?

Why does anyone look at porn?

For tens of millions of American men and women, there’s only one answer: To get more sexually excited. The goal of getting excited, of course, is to enhance the process by which people eventually get not-excited—also called satisfaction.

Lather, rinse, repeat three times per week for 75 years.

How someone feels about that—deliberately doing something to get more aroused—is an excellent predictor of how they will feel about pornography. For those suspicious of sexual arousal, porn is bad. For those who think that tinkering with our own arousal is selfish or creepy, porn is bad.

And for those who think arousal is OK, as long as it’s directly connected to one’s partner’s body, personality or sexual behavior, porn is also bad.

When people want to talk about their disapproval of porn’s mission of increasing excitement, they generally resort to one of the standard criticisms of porn:

* Watching porn is a form of infidelity
* It’s immoral
* It exploits actresses
* It gives consumers wrong/bad ideas about sex
* Consuming porn makes people withdraw from their partners
* It’s secretive, which hurts a relationship
* Consuming porn leads to violence against women
* It suggests novel, even “kinky” sexual activities
* It leads men to demand sexual behaviors from women that women don’t want to do.

As standard as these criticisms are, each has a straightforward response:

* It depends on how you define infidelity; what about lusting after women in the airport, or fantasizing about them while masturbating without porn?

* Some people prefer to measure morality by reference to ethics or how we treat others, rather than by a private erotic choice hurting no one.

* Watching porn exploits actresses to the same extent that watching pro football exploits athletes, who risk their physical safety for our entertainment. “The money they earn isn’t comparable”? So if porn actresses make a fortune (some do), watching porn is OK?

* Most adults watching porn know it depicts fantasy, not a documentary. In every society, in every age, people have held inaccurate or harmful ideas about sex. A lack of real sex education doesn’t help in this regard.

* No one withdraws from a sexual relationship that’s physically and emotionally satisfying, certainly not for the chance to masturbate to a video.

* People only keep their porn watching a secret when their mate demands it—via ultimatums, demands, or other rigidity. And yes, porn watchers could be braver about confronting this—but porn watching doesn’t have to inherently involve secrecy.

* Everyone knows porn watching has gone up, and every law enforcement agency says that the rate of sexual violence has gone down. If anything, there’s a strong argument that porn acts as a safety valve to reduce sexual violence.

* If learning new ways to do things is bad, the most dangerous person in town is Martha Stewart, the queen of reimagining what we can do and how we can do it.

* People have been pressuring each other for various sexual behaviors since the beginning of time. Thirty years ago it was oral sex; before that it was intercourse before marriage; before that it was kisses and embraces during courtship. We should be concerned that there are still people who can’t say “no” firmly enough within a relationship to prevent future invitations.

The deeper issue here is over ownership of our eroticism. Do we still own it when we’re in a relationship, or does the relationship now own it? If we agree to limit our sexual behavior within a relationship (as most people do), does “behavior” include sexual fantasy?

And is it a bad thing to nourish our relationship with our own eroticism?

Anyone who thinks so must also indict industries promoting fashion, perfume, plastic surgery, hairdressing, cars and other large consumer items. Not only are these designed to make us more attractive to others, they are also promoted to make us feel sexier, more glamorous, and more youthful—to affect how we feel about ourselves,  not only how others feel about us.

In a world where we’re all encouraged to increase our self-esteem and sense of empowerment, doesn’t that include our sense of our own sexuality? This is not an abstract thing; increasing our self-esteem and empowerment means, if we wish, increasing our experience of our own eroticism.

Particularly in monogamous relationships, viewing pornography—with or without masturbation—seems a particularly benign and effective way to do that.

Three Cheers for Banned Books!!!

dirty storiesI love writing “dirty” stories.

More importantly, I love writing stories that contain ideas… In this case, the underlying theme in most of my stories (along with lots and lots of “hot sex”!!) is the idea of people being able to enter into whatever types of relationships that work for them and satisfy them. No matter WHAT type of relationship that happens to be!

Most people don’t seem to like that “idea”. They don’t understand it. It scares them. And because of that, they don’t wish me to express that idea. It makes them uncomfortable. To me, that’s what good writers do… They make people “uncomfortable”.

As a proud author of banned books (thanks, Amazon…), I thought I’d pass along some interesting information about other “banned books” and how they got banned, courtesy of the ACLU website:


Introducing – Carnaltopia!!

There’s a new erotica e-book dealer in town… and this one is hot enough to practically melt your computer monitor!!

Carnaltopia features authors and stories that the folks at Carnal Pleasures considers “the best of the best”.. Stories that are creatively imaginative, well-written, and most important of all, hot! HOT!! HOT!!! Most of the stories are ‘taboo’ in nature, although some are not. Just quality works of erotic fiction that will set your imagination soaring, and most likely send your fingers flying. 😉

Becca Sinh - The Highest Bidder

Currently there are only around a dozen or so authors featured on Carnaltopia, but more will be gradually added over time. I am honored beyond words that they asked to have my titles included among this list of distinguished authors, and they have also seen fit to want to include “Pushing Boundaries“, the premiere title by my love, Lilly-Rose Young.

Lilly-Rose Young - Pushing Boundaries

Among the other fine authors included on this site are my good friend K.C. Cave, as well as Becca Sinh, Tani Fredricks,  Charles E. Magness, Franki McCallister, and Alexi Fall.

K.C. Cave - Book 1 of "Junie & Michael" - Making Michael Obey

Carnal Pleasures is a wonderful site featuring dozens of authors and hundreds of stories. Many of these you will NOT find on Amazon, or many other sites. If you’re looking for stories and authors that they consider the “cream of the crop” in quality erotic storytelling however, give Carnaltopia a try. 🙂

Alexi Fall - Daddy's Day Off

Putting All Your Eggs In One Basket

push itAnother erotica author advising against the notion of being “exclusive” with just one publisher/distributor.

Good article, and an argument that I’ve been touting for months, but I would also add to this that it’s also important to PROMOTE all the venues your books are available as well. I still see far too many authors promoting their books by linking ONLY to their Amazon pages, even even when they are available on multiple sites.

If your books are available on sites in addition to (or even instead of) Amazon, start letting your readers know about it!

I’m presenting Mr. Michelson’s fine article below in its entirety, but you can also read it from his original blog, and check out his other posts about his books and where they are available.

What to Do When Publishers Start Banning Your Erotica?

When it comes to banning authors or books, self-published erotica is the low hanging fruit of the world of fiction. You won’t get news editorials defending the right of someone to publish “Cheerleaders 2: The Trouser Snake Returns” and most independent authors aren’t going to pull down the sort of numbers and have the marketing clout that might make a publisher step back and decide to resist public opinion.
It can be worse today because of the of clickbait articles which are designed solely to drive traffic to their parent site. A writer can type up an article, headline it with: PUBLISHER TOLERATES MONSTER/ALIEN/SEXY CHEERLEADER PORN, slap up a few pictures or excerpts and watch the page views (and revenue) roll in. Meanwhile, the publisher’s staff quickly go through the catalog and delist some books so that they can say they’re doing something about it.
First of all, someone, somewhere is now shouting about the First Amendment, that glorious document that protects us from this and lets us sell our erotic stories.
Stop. Seriously. Stop.
The First Amendment only applies to the government. There are some very, VERY limited cases where a publisher refusing to publish something might attract the  government’s interest, but erotic stories? Nope. They have a perfect right to sell or not sell any story submitted to them.
They’re also not doing it because they hate you. A publisher loves one thing: Green, as in the color of the money you bring them. Now individual reviewers or editors might have an ax to grind, but most publishers don’t care. They’re banning books because they think it will ultimately make them more money than keeping those books available will.

So What’s the Author of Erotica to do?

It’s simple:
Never, EVER, let yourself be trapped with one storefront. Always spread books out among several distributors in order to ensure that if there’s a problem with on, it won’t destroy your revenue stream. These companies don’t talk with each other and many of them have far different standards. If a book gets banned or if it looks like one of your books is going to run into TOS related troubles, just sell it via a different channel.
That also helps you if, heaven forbid, you get your entire account banned— you still have books up for sale and you still have an Internet presence. There is nothing worse than realizing that you put your eggs all in one basket and now not only have you been banned, but your fans have no way to keep buying your book. In the time it takes to rebuild your Internet presence you could lose thousands of dollars worth of sales.
Finally, note that if you’re only selling through one publisher, you’re not simply at the mercy of decisions to ban your books or account, but you’re also at the mercy of decisions to change the contract you’re working under. If it’s a choice between rebuilding everything from scratch and accepting a new deal that cuts your royalties by 10 percent, what are you going to do? Well, if you have your books being published through other avenues, you have much more freedom to say: “nope!” and take your books with you.
Finally, a word of advice:
Don’t take it personally. These companies are making a business decision. It maybe a stupid decision, it may be a decision that is harmful to your pocketbook, but it’s not personally aimed at you. In fact, it may be based on an automated scan of your work instead of someone reading it. Getting pissed off won’t change anything and can lead you down unproductive avenues. Just keep your options open and keep writing. You’ll be successful.

Oh, there’s another thing to consider: If you’re good enough to write erotica, you’re also good enough to write general fiction, so in addition to spreading out your options in terms of who you’re publishing with, you might want to consider writing to a wide range of genres.
