Lydia Has Some Fun (A Free Short)

This story was originally created for my Quickies: Wanderlust collection.

Chronologically, this takes place basically some time after the first Wanderlust novel. It's a pretty simple, straightforward story. Lydia's looking for a place to sleep for the night and stumbles upon an inn that happens to be owned by a young, inexperienced guy. And then they fuck. There's a bit more story to it than that, but that's the premise.

I hope you enjoy it!


It had been another long, boring and, for the most part, fruitless day.

Will finished sweeping up the area between the handful of tables and chairs that occupied the lobby of his inn. Ha. 'His' inn. It didn't feel like his, it still felt like it belonged to his parents. And yet, they were gone and he was still here. It hardly seemed like more than a few months had passed since he was that young, wide-eyed, gawky boy sweeping up and chopping firewood, being issued commands by his mother and father.

But the reality was that that was nearly three years ago. He still felt young, wide-eyed, and gawky, still felt like a boy, not a man. But he was twenty now, his parents were gone and all he had in this world was an inn at the edge of a village that wasn't all that well-traveled or popular. With a sigh, Will collected up the refuse he'd swept together and dumped it out the window. Outside, it was cool and comfortable, the sun was setting. It looked peaceful. He heard the vague sounds of the village winding down for the day, preparing for sleep.

And here he was without anyone to stay the night.

At this point, the situation was looking bad. When his parents had died three years ago in an attack on the town by a group of raiders, the local lord had taken pity on him and given him a fairly nice sum of gold and legally switched the deed to the land and the building he was in to his name. His parents had been good people, good to the community. They'd also managed to pay off the debt of purchasing the land and the materials for the construction of the inn the year before, so all he had to worry about was the taxes and the materials to keep the inn going. The initial boon from the lord, plus the relatively steady flow of customers back then and a few other bits of charity from the locals had kept him going for three years now.

But coin was running out.

The village had never fully recovered from the attack and many people had moved away. On top of that, fewer and fewer adventurers and merchants were coming through. Originally, Will had been able to hire a cook and a waitress to help out around the inn, but he'd since had to let them both go. It was a one-man show now and even with the few people coming through, it was quite a long list of chores for a single twenty year old, especially to maintain an entire inn that was both his home and place of business.

But he had managed it.

So far.

It seemed like it was coming to an end though. Just over the past few months, the local lord had passed away and his son had taken over. He was less interested in preserving local legacies, like Will's inn, which had been there for two decades now, and more interested in his own personal comforts. He was trying to buy the inn and the land from Will to have it turned into a second house for himself. Will had been tempted, very tempted, because the amount of money he was offering was enough to move away and possibly start some new business in another, more successful village. And yet...he wasn't sure he wanted to leave.

This was where he had spent his entire life, where he had grown up with his parents. He knew most of the people living here.

Will sighed again and turned away from the issue. He only had a week left to decide and now wasn't the time. It had been a long day. He'd had to go collect and chop firewood, had to go to market to replenish his stock of food stuffs, had to make a few repairs around the place. He was tired. He just wanted to close up now. Slowly, he went about sealing off all the entrances and exits, starting by locking the windows. Then he went to the back door and locked it up too. After putting out the fire in the kitchen, he moved to the front door to lock it down for the night and then he paused. There was someone out there.

Coming towards him.

A woman. An adventuring type woman, from the looks of her. She was quite tall and well-built, that was all he could tell about her though in the fading twilight. She looked as if she meant to come inside.

As she approached, Will opened the door.

“Hello,” he said.

“Hi, are you renting rooms?” she asked.

“Yes,” he replied eagerly. “Most definitely. Twenty coin for a night. That includes meals.”

“That's a bit expensive but I don't really feel like going anywhere else. You got it,” she said, and he stepped out of the way. She came inside and looked around. Now that he could see her better, he could tell three things about her right away. She was older than him. She must be a fighter, because she had a wicked scar down one side of her face and she had a sword at her hip. And, perhaps most obvious of all, she was very attractive in a rough and tumble kind of way. She had tanned skin and short brunette hair that was pulled into a loose ponytail. She was also taller than he was by a few inches, clad in some weathered and worn leather armor.

“My name is Lydia,” she said.

“Will,” he replied.

“What do you have to eat?” she asked, walking over to a table and sitting down. Will shut and locked the door, then moved to join her.

“Not much, at the moment, I'm afraid. There's a bit of beef and lamb I made for dinner leftover, and some bread and fruits.”

“That sounds good. Bring me what you've got left.”

“Yes ma'am,” he replied.

He moved into the kitchen and, as he began gathering the food, he found himself thinking about what she might look like naked. It wasn't an odd thought, not for a twenty year old man, but it came on with a powerful sort of allure. He'd only ever dated two women in his life, once when he was sixteen and again last year when he was nineteen. Both relationships had failed for different reasons and he didn't want to think about either of them anymore. But this woman...there was something about her, something intensely alluring.

He gathered the food and brought it out to her.

“Thank you,” she said. “Would you mind keeping me company while I eat? It's been awhile since I've had anyone to be social with.”

“Not at all,” Will replied, sitting down across from her. “So, uh, I take it that you're an adventurer?” he asked.

“I am,” she replied, nodding. “I used to be a paladin but I've since left the order. I've been wandering this land for years now. I...seek to right wrongs and often I slay undead. What about you, Will? You seem a bit young to be running an inn.”

“I'm twenty,” he replied, trying not to be defensive. It wasn't the first time his age had come up and Lydia seemed genuinely curious, not condescending. “I inherited this building and this land when my parents were killed in a bandit raid on the city a few years ago.”

“I'm very sorry to hear that.”

“Yeah...it hasn't been easy.”

“You don't have anyone around? Anyone to help out?”

“No. Not anymore.”

“You live here alone?” Lydia asked. Something about the way she asked that question made Will look back at her, since his eyes had wandered to the nearby window, to the moonlit landscape. She was looking at him intently, then she looked back down at her food.

“No, it's just me here.”

“No girlfriend?” she asked.

“...no. Why?”

She offered him a small smile. “I'm just curious.” Was she hitting on him? No way. She was this mature, super hot, totally badass warrior and he was just this sad, awkward kid half her age. No way she'd be interested in him.

But...what if she was?

Could he ever forgive himself if he didn't pursue this?

Lydia finished her meal and sat back. They kept talking, though she did most of the talking over the next forty five minutes or so. As the time passed, Will became more and more convinced that she was hitting on him. He became increasingly nervous as he worked himself up to the idea of actually inviting her to his bedroom.

“So, what about you?” he asked suddenly after silence had fallen for a little while.

“What about me what?” Lydia replied. She seemed amused.

“Do you have, you know, anyone? A boyfriend?” he asked.

“No. Traveling around a lot means that I don't really get to form attachments. My relationships tend to be short. Usually one night stands and flings.”

“Oh...” he said. She was staring at him intently, as if waiting for him to pursue that particular avenue of conversation. He summoned up what little courage he had left. “In that case, would you be, uh...interested in, well, spending the night with me?”

Lydia laughed. “By the Gods you are shy!” she said. “Yes. I would like that.”

“Really?!”

“Yes. I want to have sex with you, Will. You're young and handsome. I'm leaving town tomorrow. It's a great match. It took you long enough.”

“I'm sorry, I just...you're really hot and...older. Uh, not that that's a bad thing. I like older woman, a lot. I just...”

“It's okay, Will. Just relax. How about you take me down to your room...does it have a bathtub in it?” she asked.

“Yeah, it does.”

“Excellent. I need a soak. We'll take a bath together and then...have some fun. How does that sound?” she asked.

“It sounds fantastic,” Will replied.

It had worked. He'd actually worked up the courage to ask this hot, mature warrior to bed and she had said yes!

He quickly cleaned up the dishes and then guided Lydia to his own bedroom, which was in the basement. They walked silently down there together. As they came into the bedroom, Will immediately wished he'd taken some time to clean the place up a bit. It looked like a wreck in his eyes, but Lydia didn't seem to care.

“So, you a virgin?” she asked as she began taking off her armor.

“No,” he replied.

“Okay. Probably for the best. I like taking cute young men's virginity, but...well, there's always a higher chance that they'll fall in love with me. Boys tend to fall in love with the girl that takes their virginity.”

“That's true,” Will murmured, remembering his own first love.

“Well, not to worry. Tonight will be a great night, I promise. I'm quite...experienced in pleasing the men I welcome into my bed. How about you? You any good at pleasing women?” she asked. Her armor was off now and she was pulling off her boots.

“I'm not sure, I haven't had much experience, I'm afraid.”

“That's all right. It's not too difficult.”

Will took off his shirt and was in the process of getting out of his boots, still unable to fully comprehend the fact that he was about to have sex with a woman twice his age, when Lydia took off her shirt and her bra. Her breasts were enormous, popping free of the bra that she tossed aside. She stretched, making her breasts even more prominent, then seemed to sense his gaze on them and smirked. “What?” she asked.

“Your...those...um, you're very pretty,” he replied.

She laughed, short and loud. “Finish getting naked,” she replied.

He nodded and recommenced taking his clothes off. He kept a close watch on her as she revealed more of her beautiful body. She was well-built, her muscles obvious. Her stomach was smooth and hard, her frame large. He imagined she could do some real damage in combat. Her thighs were thick and beautiful, her vagina smooth, which was odd. The other girls he'd been with had had pubic hair. Hers was bald and smooth.

“How do you do that? With your, uh, hair?” he asked.

She glanced down. “That? Oh, a simple fire spell.” She raised her hand and suddenly a small wave of fire engulfed it. “It's changed so that it only burns off hair, not skin. Nice, isn't it?”

“Uh...yeah, really nice,” he replied.

As he finished getting undressed, she turned away from him and began walking for the tub. He was given a view of her ass, which was huge and pale. It was difficult not to stare at. As she got down into the sunken tub, he quickly finished getting naked, crossed the room and joined her in the water. For the first few moments, the pair of them simply washed up, using bars of soap and washcloths he kept on the tubs' edge.

When they were finished, Lydia beckoned him over.

Will moved to join her, getting next to her. She leaned in and began kissing him, pressing her lips against his. He felt her grab his wrist and bring it up to one of her breasts. He groaned as he started groping it. Her tits really were massive and they felt wonderful. He began running his hands along her body as they made out and she slipped her tongue into his mouth. Will lost himself in her touch, her taste, her smell.

How long had it been?

Too long since he'd last known the touch of a woman. He continued groping her large, beautiful breasts until he slipped his hand down to her thigh, then back around to her huge ass. Finally, he decided to pleasure her. He brought his hand back around and slipped it in between her thick thighs, which she parted for him. As they continued to make out, Will found the small nub of her clit and began to gently massage it with the tip of his finger. He'd learned at least this much from his other two girlfriends and they seemed to like it.

Lydia let out a low moan.

“That's right,” she whispered. “That's the spot right there. Keep that up.”

“Yes ma'am,” he replied.

She smiled and kept kissing him, moaning as they made out and he continued to finger her. He rubbed her clit, making small, increasingly powerful circles. He kept this up until his finger and his wrist began to ache and then, suddenly, Lydia let out a small scream of pleasure. He felt the water around her pussy get hotter and he realized she was coming. Sex juices escaped her pussy for several seconds and her muscles tensed and released over and over again until she finished coming. When it was over, she let out a long, contented sigh and leaned back.

“I knew you'd do fine,” she said with a grin.

“Glad I could help,” Will replied.

She leaned over and gave him a long kiss. “Now,” she said, straightening up. “It's your turn. Get up on the edge of the tub, I'll suck your dick...where would you like to come?” she asked. “My mouth? My face? My tits?”

“I'd really like to come on your tits,” he replied.

“That can be arranged,” Lydia said.

Will quickly pulled himself up onto the side of the tub. He was rock hard now, his dick fully erect. Lydia got into position, the waterline just up to below her breasts. Leaning in, she slipped her tongue out and licked all the way up from the base of his cock to the head and slipped it smoothly into her mouth.

Will groaned as she started sucking him off, her head bobbing rapidly. She looked ridiculously sexy, her short brunette hair darkened by the water, plastered to her head. She looked up at him with sharp green eyes.

He didn't last long.

A combination of it having been quite awhile since his last brush with the opposite sex and how ridiculously hot it was to be sucked off by a very attractive woman probably old enough to be his mother ensured that. Plus, Lydia's clear skill at sucking dick only made the process even faster. She kept going, bobbing her head and gripping his dick with her first two fingers and her thumb, jerking it off as well.

Within a minute, he was ready to blow.

“Gonna go!” he gasped.

Lydia slipped him out of her hot, wet mouth, pointed his cock down at her huge tits and began rapidly jacking him off. That's all it took. Will looked down in sheer amazement as his cock began kicking and jerking violently in her hand, huge, thick spurts of his white, cloudy seed being spat out of its tip, all over her huge breasts. She kept jerking him until he was dry, until there was no more left to come out, then she put it back into her mouth and sucked out what was left.

“There,” she said, getting back beneath the water and cleaning herself off. “How was that? Did I do a good job?”

“Best blowjob of my life,” he replied, slipping back into the water.

“Good. Now, let's take a break, then we can fuck.”

He was still horny and very much looking forward to being inside of her again.

They soaked for a bit longer, then cleaned up, got out and dried off. Once they were dry, they walked over to his bed, what had been his parent's bed, and laid down. For a moment, they simply laid there and looked at each other. Then Lydia reached out and grabbed his cock. She began massaging it and started making out with him again.

“Do you have...I mean, I don't have any kind of protection,” he said.

“Don't worry,” she replied. “I'm protected. We'll be fine.”

“Okay.”

They kept making out until she pulled him on top of her. She spread her long, powerful legs for him, exposing herself, inviting him inside. Will felt an additional wave of excitement ripple through him. He'd never had sex with a woman without protection before. He'd heard it was supposed to feel incredible bareback.

Carefully, he lined his cock up with her tight, glistening opening. He rested the head of it just at the entrance to her pussy and began to work his way inside. She was really fucking wet. They both moaned as he penetrated her, burying himself inside.

“Oh, yes, Will,” Lydia moaned. “Fuck me. Fuck me like a whore.”

Will groaned and pushed himself all the way inside. He started humping her, pulling and pushing his cock repeatedly into her hot, wet, mature pussy. Lydia moaned loudly as he did this. Will pushed himself up, staring down at her perfect body, at her huge tits, bouncing in motion with his thrusts, up at her attractive face, twisting and reacting in pleasure to the sex. She looked up at him, smiling, and he leaned down and kissed her.

“You like me?” she asked, running her hands across his back. “You like my body? My pussy?”

“Yes, I love it,” he moaned. “It feels so good, Lydia.”

It did. Being inside of her was like a new plateau of pleasure. Bareback definitely felt better than protected sex. It was like his cock was being infused with pure pleasure, it filled him like a drug or like magic, making him want to come inside of her. He held out for as long as he could, pounding her, but then he looked down at her thick thighs, at where their crotches met, at his dick, wet from her pussy, sliding rapidly in and out of it, and that was all it took.

“Lydia, I'm going to come,” he gasped.

“Do it,” she said. “Come into me. Fill me up with it.”

That was all the incentive he needed.

Something released inside of him and then his cock was once more spitting out gobs of his seed directly into Lydia's pussy. He cried out, laying down on her and wrapping his arms tightly around her, frozen in place for the moment save for his hips. They thrusted forward, responding automatically to each jolt his orgasm sent throughout his body. He could feel his cock, held tightly in place by Lydia's mature pussy, kicking and jerking, ejecting his seed forcibly from his body in thick spurts. Slowly, the orgasm ended.

“Oh wow,” he gasped, trying to get his breath back. “Wow, that was something else.”

“I'm glad you liked it,” Lydia replied.

Carefully, Will pulled out of her and laid down on the bed next to her. As he laid there, basking in the post-coital glow, all at once, a thought came to him. It was as clear as day, crystal in its clarity, perfect. He realized, suddenly, that he knew what he should do. Staying here, at this inn, was foolish. He was clinging needlessly to the past. If his parents were here, they would be telling him that it wasn't working, that he needed to move on with his life. He wasn't sure what about the sex he had just had that cleared his mind, but it did.

For whatever reason, he was thinking clearly.

“Lydia,” he said.

“Yes?”

“Would you do me a favor? It's kind of a big one.”

“Well, we just had sex so I'm kind of open to suggestion. I guess it depends on what it is.”

He spent the next several minutes detailing his situation and ultimately asked her if she would help him wrap up his affairs here and offer protection to him while he made his way to another village to take another shot at making a life.

“Hmm...normally, I don't go for this kind of thing. I'm a loner and I like to travel alone. But I like you. You remind me of another cute young man I once knew intimately and traveled with for a little while. His name was Owyn. So...give me twenty gold and promise to eat me out or finger me once a day while we're together, and I'll do it.”

“You've got yourself a deal,” Will replied. They shook hands. Will laughed. “I kind of feel like celebrating or something.”

Lydia smiled. “I can think of one way to celebrate,” she replied, running a finger down his chest.

Will leaned over and kissed her, preparing for round two.

Love's Night Out (A Free Short)

Okay, here is the first free short story!

I wrote this one back in 2015. It was originally intended as bonus content for Patreon when I very first launched it. It didn't take long to realize that it just wasn't going to work, so I scrapped Patreon there for awhile, but I ended up with a handful of short stories. Eventually, I wrote some more and created a pair of collections I called Quickies.

Unfortunately, Quickies didn't do too well, and probably a big reason was because you already had to be a fan and have read certain content to really appreciate the short stories. So I eventually took Quickies down and am in the process of breaking them up and either adding some of the shorts back into the re-releases of some titles, or releasing them as stand-alone stories.

In order to fully appreciate Love's Night Out, I'd say you would have to read Hellcats & Hellcats 2. Although there is a brief mention of it in the beginning of Hellcats 3. It takes place during Hellcats 2 and expands upon a sexual encounter Lovebot 2.0 had while on vacation. I hope you like it!


Mark couldn't believe his luck.

He'd spent the past four days on the White Sand Islands, lounging in the lap of luxury. He was on vacation, a corporate-sponsored vacation. Being this high up in the company, he was entitled to two per year, five days each, to wherever he wanted to go with a budget of two thousand credits. Any overflow he had to cover himself, but that was fine, given that he lived in a small, decently-priced apartment and didn't have particularly expensive tastes.

The trip had been nice but a bit bland. Walks on the beach, perusing the various tourist trap shops, a little bit of gambling, a bit of drinking. He'd had a roll in the hay twice with a prostitute that worked for the hotel he was staying at and that had been quite wonderful. Her name had been Brandi and she was a brunette ten years younger than him, slim and limber with a beautiful mouth. Unfortunately for him, working in a sexbot brothel for a year in his early twenties had left him with a bit of a different appetite.

It wasn't that he didn't enjoy Brandi, he had, thoroughly, but she didn't quite give him that spark. No, when you got used to seeing those robot girls, used to the sex they could provide you...even the cheap models would blow your mind.

And now, here, he had met a sexbot.

Her name was Lovebot Two Point Oh but she called herself Love.

She was absolutely gorgeous. Apparently, she was a mercenary and she was here on vacation with her friends, who were also mercenaries. Mark had found her strolling along the beach outside the café he'd been having breakfast in earlier this morning. She was such a sight to behold, not just in her physical beauty but the fact that she was so obviously a sexbot, all that silver skin, gleaming mellowly in the early morning sunshine, that he hadn't been able to help himself. He'd had to approach her, strike up a conversation.

Love was very personable, very charismatic, in fact.

She'd started talking with him after he introduced himself and they'd walked back to the café and sat down and continued talking.

That talk had lasted through most of the day.

After breakfast, they'd gone walking through the stalls and it became increasingly obvious that Love was interested in him in the same way he was interested in her. Especially after he told her the story about working at the sexbot brothel. He was worried she might take offense to it but she said she didn't have a problem with it.

Now, they were walking back to his hotel.

She was holding his hand, resting her metal head on his shoulder.

“Did you have a favorite?” she asked, suddenly.

“Hmm?” he replied. They hadn't spoken for the past ten minutes.

“Among the lovers you took in the brothel, did you have a favorite?”

“I did, actually. Her name was Vanessa.”

“What was she like? Why was she your favorite?”

“She was quick-witted, smart. They programmed her to have a bit of an attitude. She was for the guys who liked being on the submissive side of a domination-submissive encounter. I wasn't into that myself but she was okay with having regular sex, too. She was beautiful. I mean, they all were, but there was something about her. She was a redhead, had this short hair she always wore in a little, sexy ponytail, and dazzling green eyes. She was thin but they'd given her huge breasts and a curvy ass. She spent a lot of time with me, in between.”

“She sounds nice.”

“She was.”

They walked in through the lobby of his hotel. It was getting dark now, the sun setting on the islands. In an hour, the sky would be completely dark, the canopy of stars twinkling overhead. There was almost no one in the lobby.

They continued walking back to the elevator, then rode it up.

“So...we've never actually discussed...what happens when we get back to my room,” Mark said as the elevator ascended.

Love smiled. “How about we go back to your room and see what happens?” she replied.

“Okay.”

He liked where this was going. He'd never had sex with one of the higher-up models of sexbot. He'd occasionally thought of purchasing one, but, honestly, he'd been so focused on his career over the past few years that the thought never stayed for long. Maybe now it would. The elevator came to a halt and they stepped out into the corridor. A moment later, he was pressing his thumbprint on the keypad and letting them in.

The hotel room was small, but elegant, and came packed with amenities. There was, of course, the king-size bed, dominating the room. There was a huge, flat-screen TV built into the wall opposite the bed, a desk with a cushy chair, a mini-fridge complete with instant microwave and sink, and there was even a hot tub just across from the bed, in the actual bedroom. He'd soaked in it every morning and every night so far.

As soon as the door shut behind them, Love immediately turned to face him and pressed her lips against his. Mark immediately became lost in her deep, passionate kiss. She kissed him as if they were long-lost lovers or first time teens finally finding a private space. She used her tongue and she tasted like honey and sugar. Mark wrapped her in a hug, then found his hands wandering across her perfect, luscious silver body.

He reached down first, cupping the swell of her fat, thick, firm ass. It felt perfect in his grasp and he knew that she more than likely had tech built into her that scanned his hands and adjusted her breasts, ass, hips, and thighs to match it so that it felt perfect. And she did feel perfect. Absolutely perfect. She continued using her tongue, twining with her own. Mark moaned softly as he reached up in between them and began groping of her huge, silver breasts. They, too, fit perfectly into his grasp. He very much was looking forward to what would come next. Love began gently guiding him across the room, towards the bed.

“Do you like where this is going?” she asked.

“Yes,” he replied as she took off his shirt. He raised his arms to help her. She tossed the t-shirt he'd been wearing aside. “I like it very much.”

“Good. I believe you'll like this next part a lot more.”

The sexbot dropped down to her knees and began to undo his pants. Mark couldn't believe how fast this was going, but, he reminded himself, she was a sexbot. This was kind of her thing. And maybe it was hard for her to get laid? He knew there were actually a lot of people who were kind of weirded out by fucking robots, like it was some kind of failure on their part or maybe they were paranoid that the thing might go nuts and hurt them, which never happened. And even those who were okay with it enough to do it, they still liked them to look human.

Love didn't. She looked like a robot.

She freed his cock and slipped it into her mouth. He was already rock hard and he moaned as she started sucking him off. She wrapped her thumb and first two fingers around his cock and started working it even as she sucked it.

“Oh Love,” he moaned. “Oh that's-that's so fucking good.”

She was moaning, too.

From working on so many sexbots, Mark knew that they were designed to sense and experience the pleasure felt by their partner, to give them an incentive to do really good in bed. Love continued moaning, the sound muffled given that his cock was in her mouth. Mark didn't realize how exciting this was until, suddenly, he was on the verge of orgasm.

“Oh, shit! Love, I'm gonna-gonna-oh you gotta stop-” he moaned.

Love didn't stop.

If anything, she picked up the pace, moving with a machine precision, an effect of her programming to maximize his pleasure and stimulation. Mark cried out as he started to come directly into her mouth. He heard Love cry out as well, since she was also experiencing his orgasm. Mark moaned, both hands on the back of her head now, gently fucking her mouth as he came into it. She was still sucking, as if trying to pump him completely dry. He could feel his cock twitching and spasming as it shot its load.

When it was over, Love released it and looked up at him.

“I told you you'd like what happened next,” she said, then she stood up and moved to the bathroom. “And you'll like what happens after this even better.”

“I'm betting you're right again,” Mark replied.

He heard her rinsing her mouth out, gargling and spitting. He kicked off his shoes, took off his pants and boxers and socks, then laid down on the bed. Love reappeared from the bathroom and crossed the room to join him. She climbed in bed with him and laid down next to him, resting her head on the pillow, smiling at him.

“Am I moving too fast?” she asked.

“Uh...no, it's fine,” he replied.

“Good. I mean, we both know this is a fling, a one night stand...we do both know that, right?”

“Oh, yeah, definitely. I'm totally fine with that. I have to leave tomorrow afternoon.”

“It's my last day here, too. This is a good way to end the vacation.”

“I'm very much in agreement with that sentiment.”

Love laid there with him a bit longer, gently running her hands across his chest, his arms, his stomach. Slowly, their idle touching began to turn into something more. She reached down and slowly started stroking his cock, teasing it into an erection. As she did this, she began kissing him again, pressing her luscious, soft, warm body against his. He moaned softly as she gripped his now mostly-stiff dick and started jacking him off.

He groaned louder at this treatment and was soon fully erect.

“You ready for me to fuck you now?” she asked with a sultry smile.

“Yes,” he replied, his voice a little breathless now.

She smirked. “Figured.”

Love climbed lithely atop him, grabbing him and guiding him smoothly into her synthetic vagina. Mark groaned as she accepted his length all in one go. Inside, Love was perfect and tight and incredibly hot and wet. He could feel her artificial pussy shifting and conforming to the size and shape of his cock, perfectly modulating itself to him. The silver sexbot moaned loudly as she started riding him, resting on her knees and sliding herself smoothly up and down the rigid length of his dick. She reached down, grabbed his wrists and brought his hands up to her huge breasts. They both moaned as he began groping them.

“You like it?” she asked with a sexy, slutty grin on her face.

“Yes,” he gasped. “Oh, Love, it's so-oh, wow, it's good,” he gasped.

“Good boy,” she whispered, then moaned as he thrust up into her.

He let go of her breasts and placed his hands down on her round, smooth hips, bringing his knees up and using the leverage to begin thrusting up into her, making her breasts bounce even more than they already had been.

She continued riding him, putting her powerful, mechanical hips to use, bringing his pleasure, and thus her own, harder and faster, riding him more and more. Mark suddenly reached up, slipped his arms around her and pulled her down on top of him. He held her close to him and flipped her over so that she was on her back and he was on top of her. She stared up at him, slightly startled by the move, but let out a loud, powerful moan as he began driving into her.

“Oh Mark!” she cried. “Oh Mark fuck me!” she screamed.

He obliged her, bringing himself up on his knees and propping himself up on the heels of his hands to give himself both a bit more leverage and a great view of her perfectly proportioned body. Her huge tits bounced as he fucked her, pounding her as hard as he could, the sound of their flesh meeting loud in the bedroom.

“Love, I'm gonna go soon,” he moaned.

“Kiss me!” she replied.

He laid back down atop her and pressed his lips to her silver ones. As soon as he did, that was it. He started letting off inside of her once again, this time into her perfect, fake pussy. They both moaned into each other's kiss as they orgasmed. Mark lost himself in the climax, feeling his dick kick and spit and fight against the incredibly tight hold Love's pussy had on it. He could feel his seed being shot out of him in hot spurts, shoved into her depths.

Slowly, he came back to reality, to himself, and he pulled out of her. Once he was free of her, Mark flopped over onto the bed.

“That was the best one-night stand I've ever had,” he said.

Love grinned. “And it's not even over yet.”

“That's true...you gonna stay with me all night?” he asked.

“I think I'd have to for it to be full one-night stand.”

He laughed. “I'm not complaining.”

“Good. We'll take a break and then get back to it.”

Mark just grinned and kissed her.

They made love four more times before the end.

It was fantastic.

In the morning, they rose and she sucked him off in the shower. Then they both dried off (though she didn't have to very much, since the water rolled right off her synthetic skin), then he got dressed and offered to take her for one more walk.

And here they were, walking along a street in the early morning sun. Not many people were out. There were a handful of stalls, bright-eyed street vendors selling this and that to the tourists. Mark spied something he liked, something he thought Love might like, so he stopped in front of one particular stall. They were still holding hands.

“I want to get you a present,” he said.

“I'd like that,” Love replied with a genuine smile. “A lot.”

He picked up a golden locket. It was fairly cheap, just ten credits, but the street vendors all sold cheap stuff. Even so, it was fairly sturdy. Mark paid for it, then opened it up and held it up in front of him. Instead of lockets like they used to have, where you put a picture of yourself in it, this one had a tiny, built-in camera. He took a picture of himself, giving an awkward grin, then he took a second one, since it could hold two, one on either side.

The second one was of him and Love kissing.

“Thank you,” she said, studying the locket.

“I know it's kind of silly, since you have a digital memory and all, but I wanted you to have something to remember me by,” he replied.

Love slipped it on over her head, around her neck. “It's not silly,” she said, adjusting it slightly, so that it hung down between her breasts. “It's very sweet. Thank you. Really.”

“You're welcome,” he replied.

She gave him a hug, then she took a step back. “This is goodbye, I guess,” she said. “It's been a lot of fun.”

“It has. Goodbye, Love.”

They enjoyed a lingering kiss, then Love disengaged herself from him, gave him one more smile, turned and began walking away.

Mark watched her go until she was out of sight.

Then he turned and began walking back to his hotel.

An erotic paranormal harem novel featuring some seriously hot inhuman ladies!

Alex lives in a world where humans coexist alongside paranormal entities. Vampires, werewolves, witches and elves and succubi. And more. Yet, as far as he's been able to tell, he's only ever really met and connected with a single paranormal during his entire boring life. Her name is Brianna, and she's an exceptionally attractive werewolf who seems to have a lot of money, lives by herself, and for some reason is very good friends with him.

But paranormals are the last thing on Alex's mind as, in the span of a day, it seems that his life has evaporated before his very eyes. After getting fired from his job, (the first and only time this has ever happened), he returns home to his small, miserable apartment and discovers that his roommate has, without warning, moved out, leaving him in the lurch with rent due very soon and a bank account already strained by bills and awful paychecks.

As he's trying to figure out how he'll handle this, Brianna ends up inviting him over...to her house, and then into her bed. As the pair hook up for the first time, Brianna offers him the opportunity of a lifetime: stop worrying about his unhappy life and join her on a sex-fueled roadtrip to Thorne, an enormous coastal metropolis that serves as a huge paranormal hub...

Warren is a young healer, employed by the local lord to deal with the castle’s magical needs. Although he lusts after Princess Ellie and longs for her best friend Lena, who has been cursed to be undead, he knows that neither will ever be interested in him in that way. Or so he thought. Everything changes when Ellie whisks Lena away to the secluded family cabin and orders Warren to join them. She’s about to change everything as she prepares for a night of hot sex between all three of them...

This novel contains a lot of explicit sex scenes between a badass princess, a sexy redhead cursed to be undead, and an awkward young man. You have been warned.

Changes & Plans

So, a lot's been happening.

Right now, I'm still gathering my thoughts. I feel like I'm picking the pieces back up, and walking on thin ice, waiting for something else to go horrifically wrong. But I'm going to continue forward with the tentative hope that the worst of it is over.

I want to recap a little, to make sure everyone is up to speed. I'll give a rough sequence of events.

After a massive boost in success thanks to luck and me releasing new, longer content with new cover art, and seeing more success in a few weeks than I have in my entire career, Amazon fucked me over and threatened to terminate my account when they falsely accused me of attempting to manipulate the Kindle Unlimited via page reads. I defended myself to the best of my ability, letting them know that not only did I not do that, I would never do that, nor do I even know how. In the process of this, every eBook I've ever written was removed from the store. I did manage to get them all back after a few fucking DAYS.

An in-depth post about this whole sorry thing can be read here.

Realizing that I can no longer trust Amazon, and that all of this seems to be tied to page reads in the Kindle Unlimited, I began trying to pull out of the KU. In an attempt to protect myself, I took down every individual episodic title that was in the KU, instead of waiting for them to fall out naturally, as I can't just pull out. Luckily, after I asked to be pulled out, Amazon agreed and took all of my titles out of the KU. You can read about that in detail here and here.

Now, I have decided to keep almost all of my episodic stories, and individual collections, (not including the Complete Seasons and Trilogies), unpublished, on the grounds that I will be re-publishing these stories in a cheaper and better format over the next year or so, and I would rather people have access to the better versions than the inferior versions. However, if people really, really want them, I've left up the Complete Seasons & Trilogies.

I would also like to point out that as I get close to re-releasing these titles, I will take down the old versions ahead of time. This is why Royal Lust (formerly Royal Love) is no longer available, as it is coming out June 1st.

Some of you may have noticed that Valkyries and Alien Harem have disappeared from the Kindle Store. There is a reason for this. Basically, as I think about my re-releases, some things occur to me, and here's something important that I realized.

I'm not very satisfied with most of my content. The reason for this is because...well, honestly, I guess a few different reasons. My own failings as a writer to be sure, but also because I just wasn't sure what I was doing for most of it. And, to compound the situation, writing in episodic shorts honestly does fuck with my ability to tell a good story. Or at least a story to my own satisfaction.

And this has shown up a few times in the form of, for example, Valkyries. I wrote that as almost kind of like a good version of Hellcats. Or my upcoming Parasexual. It's basically a better version of Paranormal Passions.

Because I have gotten better at writing, (I mean, I hope), and because I can write novels now, I'm really feeling the urge to redo a few of my older works, as I had much higher hopes for them, and knew they could be more than what they ended up being.

Alien Harem and Valkyries are the two I intend to do full on rewrites of. I think Alien Harem could at least be a solid trilogy, maybe even a bit more, but I think Valkyries could be a full on series. And I have more I want to say with Valkyries and I think it could be a really awesome series.

Now, in terms of what I'm doing right now.

I'm working on Demoness III. Definitely not as far in as I'd like to be, and as everything finishes settling, (I also have some unrelated real-life stuff going on right now, nothing bad, just distracting), I'm looking forward to settling in and making good progress on this just about every single day until it's done! And from the layout I've created, and how comfortable I'm getting writing novels, I think this one might actually be longer than Demoness II!

Basically the same story for Parasexual. Once everything settles, I'll make daily progress on it, too. This one will likely be about as long as Hellcats, so it shouldn't take as long to write.

The other thing I'm working on in the background right now is preparing my re-releases for, well, re-release. There typically isn't a great deal of work that goes into this, but there's enough that it warrants some preparation.

This is as far as I'm going to go on my in-progress projects. Well, writing-wise, at least. I don't want to spread myself too thin. Two projects at once is enough.

Now, as for what I plan on doing after that?

I've given it some thought, and I've decided that I will not be working on Haven after Parasexual. Instead, I will continue on with Parasexual until it is finished. This stems from not wanting to have too many series in progress at once. Three is enough. (And that's excluding the re-releases.)

That being said, I've received an unexpectedly large and positive response to Women of the Wild, and as such, once Demoness III is complete, I will begin production of Women of the Wild II. After that, I have a solid idea of what I want to do for Demoness IV, and will write that, followed by Women of the Wild III.

Once Demoness IV wraps up, I'll need to assess the situation. The thing is, I have ideas, to be sure, for several more Demoness books. But I have other ideas that I really want to get to, and I also don't want to work on a series too much, or I'll burn myself, and probably the readers, out. So there's a good chance that I'll put Demoness on the back burner.

While I will continue to work on Women of the Wild, as I have pretty solid ideas of what I want to do for Parts III, IV, & V, I'll have to decide what series to start up next. There's a very good chance that I'll finally begin my Sci-Fi Action Erotica series Wild Discovery.

Once Parasexual is wrapped up, I'll probably begin working on my rewrite of Alien Harem.

For the foreseeable future, this is how it will go. I'll have three series actively in production, with two of them being larger and more 'serious', with one of them being shorter and more focused on erotica and sex. And by shorter I mean 40,000 - 50,000 words, (Hellcats was 50,000 words for reference).

That's the gist of it.

I do, however, have one more big thing I want to talk about. My Patreon.

I've recently given it a revamp and a few things are different. One is a massive difference.

So, first of all, if you donate 1$/month, you will get access to the first chapters of my works in progress. 5$/month gets you access to the nude alternate versions of my covers and the first chapters.

I've added a new tier. For 10$/month, you will get access to all my books. This will come in the form of two downloadables: a kindle-ready file and a PDF, or you could just read it right there on Patreon. I'm planning on launching this in June and will do a full blog post explaining it. I also want to say that not everything will be available right away, mainly because of the Kindle Unlimited. Although I am technically pulled out of the KU, any of my books that have been borrowed by people will stay in their libraries until they naturally expire. So because Amazon has made me SUPER paranoid, I'm going to refrain from posting Hellcats, Demoness, or Women of the Wild related content until they naturally expire. Sorry, but I really just want to avoid any potential bullshit from Amazon.

Here's what I intend to have ready to go on launch: Royal Lust, Wanderlust, My Undead Lover, & Exploration. I will upload titles before their official release dates. Eventually, the Hellcats Trilogy, Women of the Wild, Demoness I & II, and The Misty Vixen Starter Pack will be available. I'm not going to put up my free titles (Snakeskin, Pink, Blind Date, The Pale Redhead, Large & Lovely), because they're freely available in all formats already.

I honestly have no idea if anyone will be interested in this, but I figure it couldn't hurt to experiment and give it a shot.

With how the past week or so has gone, I really feel like I need a backup plan or two in terms of being able to pay my bills and buy food.

So yeah, that's everything! Hope this was useful. Thanks for reading!

Hellcats: The Complete Trilogy Released!

 
 

Hellcats - The Complete Trilogy is out now!

You can purchase it as an eBook for 9.99$ right HERE.

You can purchase it as a paperback for 14.99$ right HERE.

If you're asking yourself about the need for a collection of the Hellcats  books, I'll try to clarify why this exists as much as I can. First and foremost, there is no difference between Hellcats 1, 2, & 3 in their original forms, and how they are collected in this book. However, there is bonus content available only in this collected trilogy. They are three short stories that take place after the end of Hellcats 3. Official descriptions are below. Now, to be clear, if you are a long-time fan, I want to say that these three shorts were included in Quickies: Hellcats, (which is now no longer available). So consider that if you're thinking about buying this.

The main reason this exists is for hardcore fans who really feel the urge to collect every scrap of content someone writes, or for those who want another way of helping support me.

Whatever reason you may choose to buy this, thank you. And if you aren't interested, that's fine. I completely understand. I've been writing bonus content for three years now, and I've always tried very hard to ride the line between offering content that makes purchasing collections worth it, but not writing content that is integral to the story, and would piss off readers who would miss out on it because they don't want to, or can't afford to, purchase this collection.

I hope I've done a good job.

Here is the official synopsis:

Welcome to the complete collected trilogy of Hellcats, a harem sci-fi erotica.

In a futuristic society where humanity lives alongside a half-dozen other alien races in relative peace, romantic or even casual relationships between the species are still a taboo for most races. Especially humanity.

Ryan is a young technician with a lot of expertise, but not much real life experience. Looking to break out of his simple life, he suddenly signs on with a group of mercenaries called the Hellcats. And when he learns that the crew of beautiful alien or otherwise inhuman women intend to use him for more than just his technical skills, everything changes forever...

This collection includes HELLCATS, HELLCATS 2, & HELLCATS 3, as well as three bonus short stories that take place after the end of Hellcats 3.

THE SWAP, in which Ryan and Syl decide to do some experimenting and swap partners with another couple.

STILL TALL, STILL SEXY, in which Emily pays Ryan a visit and has some fun.

THE SWAP - PART 2, in which Ryan and Syl hook up with a mature married woman looking for an interracial threesome.

THE HELLCATS TRILOGY contains casual sex between a human and a host of alien or otherwise inhuman ladies, and definitely features a lot of passionate sex scenes. You have been warned.

Hellcats 3 Released!

 
 

Well, Hellcats 3 is out.

Normally, I'd be thrilled about releasing a new title. Even a re-release. But sadly, this comes on the heels of myself being forced to pull every single title of mine out of the Kindle Unlimited. And as such, Hellcats 3 is not available through the KU.

Why is that?

Well, if you want the long version, please refer to this blog post. But basically, Amazon has threatened me with account termination, and this was after suspending me from my account for a day, which caused a 'glitch' that resulted in ALL of my eBooks disappearing from the store for close to three days...right in the middle of me selling better than I've ever dreamed of selling.

Why was I threatened? Amazon apparently detected 'illegitimate activity and borrows' related to my account. What I've taken this to mean is that some bots, for some reason, read some of my titles through the Kindle Unlimited. I had absolutely nothing to do with it, nor do I have any way to prove that, and Amazon has adopted a guilty until proven innocent policy.

So, in order to protect myself from having my account terminated, I am no longer participating in the Kindle Unlimited, and have pulled all my titles from it. Honestly, this pisses me off, as it's not fair to me, and it's not fair to my readers, who were clearly enjoying my works.

So...sorry. You'll have to purchase Hellcats 3. I've tried to keep it reasonably priced.

You can purchase it as an eBook for 2.99$ right HERE.

You can purchase it as a paperback for 9.99$ right HERE.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT?: Basically nothing. This novel covers all of Season Two of the original Hellcats releases. Specifically, this encompasses Episodes 10 - 15, and the bonus short stories from Collections #5 & #6, and The Complete Second Season.

Here is the official synopsis:

After a fun-filled, sexy, week-long vacation, Ryan and the Hellcats are returning to their ship and preparing to deal with some new situations that have cropped up.

For Emily, this means finding a job with a bit more weight, and a higher payout, as they spent a lot more money while on vacation than she realized. Unfortunately, a higher paying job tends to mean a higher amount of danger, and while normally she doesn't balk at danger, now Ryan is part of the team, and she's grown very fond of him...

For Ryan, he has suddenly found himself in a situation he's never been in before, (though he has dreamed often of it): a three-way, open relationship with two extraordinarily beautiful alien women. As he prepares to begin sharing living quarters with Colleen, he also looks forward to getting to know his two girlfriends, as well as the other women on the ship, even better. But things get more complicated as he begins wondering about his own purpose on the ship beyond simply being a boytoy...

How I Became Successful


BEFORE WE BEGIN


Well, shit.

I've been experiencing sudden success for less than a month and I already have people asking me how I did it. And because I try to be helpful where I can, I feel compelled to put together at least some kind of coherent post explaining it.

This is going to be LONG. I'll break it up into parts.

Before I get into any of it, I want to just get the primary answer out of the way first. You aren't going to like it, and most people hate it. A lot of people do what they can do deny it, downplay it, or somehow diminish it. (I'm not a fan of it myself.)

But the biggest, most primary thing that led to my being successful was...

Luck.

Yeah, no one wants to hear that. No one wants to hear that the universe doesn't care about you and that it's all pretty much the luck of the draw. Back in the day, (before my time as a writer), luck was which editor you happened to get the day that your manuscript showed up at whatever gigantic publishing house you sent out to. Luck was whether or not he was having a good day or a bad day, whether or not he looked at your name and it gave him a good feeling or a bad feeling because someone from his life that he loved or hated shared that name. Luck was whether or not he gave a shit about your genre. And then even if he liked your book, loved it even!...well, luck was there again if he could convince marketing to take it. Was your genre in that year? Was your book just a little too hard to categorize? Too hard to market? Too long? Too short?

You can see where I'm going with this. There are so many damned things that had to fall just the right way to get signed. And that was just to get signed. That's not even considering the whole process of actually getting published, then getting your book out to bookshelves. You had to be lucky enough to get a good cover. You had to be lucky enough to get good placement in the right book stores, then get in front of the right people, and you had to get enough purchases to convince your publisher to allow you to write another book.

I avoided all this, mercifully.

And don't get me started on the people who say, "Just write a good book. If it's good, it'll sell." Tell that to all the people who wrote amazing books that never got popular until after they died, or in some cases straight up kill themselves because they never got published. Or all the people who write great works and never get noticed. Or how about all the people writing garbage that get massive success?

Obviously luck plays a part.

And that doesn't upset me or anything! (Clearly.)

But luck isn't all bad. Sometimes it turns in your favor. And if you're smart, you'll be ready to jump on it, and start building on it. Luck can provide a foundation, but you need to build the empire.

So now we need to put this in a bit of perspective. How did I get started?


MY HISTORY


In late 2014, I decided, "You know what? I want to read stories about regular dudes fucking alien women." I couldn't really find any, so I figured, why not write about that? I had a few ideas. And then I started writing Hellcats. I was not at all confident in my writing abilities, and a little bit of research told me that people were selling pretty short erotica, and that it was normal to do so. So I drew up some basic plans that became the first season of Hellcats. And not much happened at first, partially because I was busy, but also because I kept hesitating on the actual writing. I figured it was a waste of time.

Even then, though, I did try to be professional from the start. I knew that if I actually committed to this, I'd be writing a lot of stories, and I knew that I needed cover art that would be able to be easily reproduceable and wouldn't cost money to make, and would also be recognizable. (Not easy.) It also needed to be something that clearly conveyed the genre, but also wouldn't put me at risk of coming under fire by Amazon. I got lucky in a few ways. Namely: I hit upon the idea to use silhouettes, and that I had a friend who knew a bit about cover design, and was willing to make covers for me in his spare time, since they were so simple to make.

By December of 2014, I had released a grand total of 4 shorts and one Collection. (From the beginning, I figured collections were a good idea.)

And then, in January,  my sales started to pick up. I'm guessing this is from the post-Christmas rush, where suddenly everyone has new Kindles and Amazon giftcards and buy stuff in a mad dash. I didn't think too much of it, though, until March. That's when numbers really started to pick up. And that's when I got to writing in earnest. I tried to keep a schedule, and once I had finished up the first season of Hellcats, got to work on writing an idea for a Sci-Fi/Erotica novella I had, which came out to be Exploration, and then I dove into Wanderlust, since I knew that I was going to get tired of writing the same thing, and I like writing fantasy as much as I do Sci-Fi. (Maybe more.)

My success exploded and kept on exploding until July 2015 hit, and then my income was sliced in half.

Basically, I had enrolled a lot of my stuff in the Kindle Owner's Lending Library, the origin of the Kindle Unlimited. Under that program, I earned approximately 1.35$ every time someone borrowed one of my stories and read 10% of it. That's where a lot of the money was coming from. Then, when July hit, Amazon changed the program to what it is now: you get paid half a penny for every page read. And...that sucked. I mean, it is more fair to authors, but suddenly titles I was making 1.35$ on, I was now lucky to make .25¢. And it fucked with my sales, too.

But I was still doing pretty good. It was enough for me to quit my day job, and eventually I did. Still haven't gone back! (Though again, primarily because of luck.)

The second half of 2015 and the first half of 2016 were kind of me frantically trying to do stuff. I wrapped up Hellcats & Wanderlust, pushed out My Undead Lover, the Royal Trilogy, and then blasted through both seasons of Alien Harem. By the time April 2016 rolled around, I decided it was high time to get more serious. So I conceived of three new series that I was going to launch. Lust & Adventure, Valkyries, and Paranormal Passions. And two of them, Lust & Adventure and Valkyries, would each feature lengthier episodes and be priced at 2.99$ instead of the 1.99$ I'd been doing so far. I still wanted to take it to the next level.

At first, it worked. Lust & Adventure was pretty successful.

And then June 2016 happened. I still don't actually know why, but all of a sudden, my sales started dropping off. My income was almost cut in half a second time. I'm convinced that it was at least partially due to the fact that I took it upon myself to release two collections of short stories, called Quickies (which were originally created in a failed attempt to produce Patreon-exclusive content). Each of these took close to a week and a half to complete, and naturally slowed down my writing schedule. And then, on top of that, the next thing slated was another trilogy of novellas called Amazonian's Love. Well, once I got all through that and into July, and saw that my sales weren't really picking back up, I went into overdrive and started busting ass on getting Valkyries and Paranormal Passions out alongside Lust & Adventure.

Well, with the exception of another trilogy of novellas called Adventurous, and a novella called Desire, this was literally all I did until June of 2017. It seemed to help. My sales stabilized and I recovered a bit. On my better months, (few and far between), I managed to match what I was making after the initial income chop. Not great, but decent. When June rolled around, I was ready for a change.

I'd conceived of this book called Demoness that was originally just going to be another novella, and not even a particularly long one. But as I got to work writing Demoness, ideas began coming to me, a lot of them. After deliberating a bit, I finally decided to just take the extra time and write Demoness out fully, instead of cutting scenes to get it out by the release date I'd set for myself. I'm glad I did. It ended up being the longest thing I'd ever written, (although it was still not technically long enough to be called a novel).

So was this the point where it all started to turn around? Where I began my eventual climb to success?

No, not even close.

Demoness was well received, and it sold better than most, but then it pretty much just fell off, and I got right back to work, launching two new series, Desire and Sex & Survival.

It was about this time that I told myself I was going to change.

For a very long time, at around the one year mark, I knew that I wanted to write longer fiction. I wanted to write erotica novels, not shorts, or even episodic shorts. But there was a problem: novels take time. Even written at a brisk pace, they take time. If I stopped producing content at a breakneck pace, (I was producing an episode about once every four days, and had been for years, with a few exceptions), I'd lose money. I might even have another massive income drop. I couldn't risk that. So I decided that I was going to buckle down and focus, and write novels alongside the episodic shorts.

That might have worked, except something new happened. I learned that Amazon had suddenly released the ability to make paperbacks. And so I decided to take on this massive endeavor of creating paperbacks, (manuscripts AND covers!), all on my own. I had about 24 novels worth of content by then. So...yeah. On top of that, because when I commit to something I really fucking try to commit, I decided to re-edit ALL of my written work so far.

I did it. I did all of it.

And it drove me a little crazy. Somehow I managed to do this while continuing to produce regular content for Desire and Sex & Survival. I worked through most of the rest of 2017 getting this done. It gave me anxiety problems, insomnia, and I put on some weight. I seriously was falling apart. But I fucking did it.

Not that it really matters a whole lot now since not a whole lot of people actually purchased the paperbacks. But at least I figured out how to do it. It's a good skill to have, since I intend to continue creating paperback versions of my work.

I also discovered that Amazon had finally, FINALLY given us the ability to request perma-free titles. So I wrote four brand new short stories, one in each of my universes, and put them out in November. It...didn't help as much as I'd like.

Now, another thing I had been working on since early 2017: The Misty Vixen Starter Pack. Here was a collection of four original novellas, each one set in one of my primary universes, all in one convenient pack. It was to act as a gateway for new readers. I spent almost a year writing it. And I finally got it out late December 2017. That's where things get a little uncertain. I'll try to hash it out best I can.

I still had the idea to get back to writing longer novels alongside my episodic shorts. I planned on getting back to this after finishing up my paperback project, and had even managed to get one of those novels written over the course of the second half of 2017. That was Women of the Wild. My goal was to build up a store of novels, so that when I did start releasing them, I could do so in a timely manner, and give myself enough of a buffer to continue producing new content. If I had a two-three month buffer of new novels saved up, then it would solve the problem of not producing enough content to stay afloat.

Well, there was a problem with that. My episodic stories just weren't selling.  Even the new stuff. This was a pretty huge morale killer. When I finished The Misty Vixen Starter Pack, I knew I needed a break or I was going to lose my shit. I took my Christmas vacation, and I began to feel a bit better when January of this year rolled around and I saw that the Starter Pack was doing really well. But I was still tired. Like, it took me awhile to realize the massive psychological and emotional toll the second half of 2017 had taken on me. That may sound stupid, and I'll certainly admit that my job is a lot easier than most others, but it still kicked my ass. I began work on Demoness II in January, and I felt pretty good about it. But I still had to finish up the third season of Sex & Survival. Something that was becoming increasingly difficult.

The more I wrote long-form fiction, the less I wanted to write short-form. It became a real pain. You can see this in the release dates of the final season of Sex & Survival. Because winter is traditionally pretty harsh on me psychologically, I was still recovering through February and even March. My numbers, however, were looking good. January and February were both good months, the best I'd had for quite awhile, and I had hope. I was coming out of my depression when March hit.

Holy fuck.

March 2018 is the worst month I've had since I began to see success. My sales were abysmal. I panicked. I wrapped up Sex & Survival and Demoness II as fast as I could, and got them out as April rolled around, and I planned on diving back into episodic writing with two new series, (Parasexual & Haven, which I'd been promising for several months by then), something I didn't really look forward to. I also decided to finally go ahead with an idea I'd had for quite awhile. It was my theory, (which has since, to my satisfaction, been proven), that I was shooting myself in the foot by writing short stories. I needed to make the jump to long-form fiction. I wanted to re-release my older titles as novels, so I found another artist (I'd already been working with one to produce covers for Demoness & Women of the Wild), and commissioned them to draw the central figure for the cover of Hellcats. I wanted to see how it would do. So I took down the original Hellcats series and then published it.

At first, my sales started to pick up, but it was about what I was expecting, since I'd been talking about Demoness II for quite awhile. And then, around Mid April, my sales pretty much exploded. And they haven't stopped yet.

So that was when I reconfigured my plan again. And it's now my current plan. Re-releasing my older content is a good idea, because clearly there is a market for it and a lot of people who haven't read it, and find it much more appealing in novel form. So, suddenly, I have a way to provide regular content, and it will give me enough time to write novels and release them at a decent pace.

Provided I actually buckle down and stick to my schedule. Which seems like a nice lead in to advice! Or basically just my theories about why I think I might have gotten successful.


TENTATIVE ADVICE


First and foremost, I'd like to be clear: I'm no expert. I may have been doing this for a few years now, and I've suddenly starting seeing success, and I have done some research and had to learn a few things, but I am not anywhere close to an expert on writing or publishing or marketing or social media. There are by and large far more people out there smarter than me, and definitely not all of them are more successful than I am.

So, let's start by getting out the specific list of what I think factored into the fact that my books are now selling pretty big. For now. I have no idea how long this is going to last.

#1: Luck & the Almighty Amazon Algorithm. As I said above, luck played, I believe, the biggest part. Right place, right time. But a huge factor of that luck is the Amazon Algorithm. What is it? There's a lot to be said about it and honestly, I don't really fucking know how it works. On the surface, it's basically just a complex piece of software (is that the right terminology?) that runs the Amazon store and determines which books get presented to which people, and get onto 'Also Bought' lists and probably a dozen other things that I am not aware of. For once, the Almighty Algorithm began to work in my favor! I'm guessing that basically, for some reason, the algorithm put a few my most recent titles in front of a lot of people that would be willing to take a shot and buy it and read it. This is my guess.

#2: Novel-length material. I have been writing episodic short stories, with the occasionally stand-alone novella and novella trilogy, for three years now. I also have been collecting these episodic shorts into collections. By far my biggest source of income has been those collections that are The Complete Season or The Complete Trilogy, that collects, you guessed it, entire seasons or trilogies, with some bonus content not available anywhere else. I've wanted to write longer stuff almost from the beginning, just because it's less restrictive and I enjoy it a lot more, but I've had a theory that if I could find the time to do so, I'd enjoy more success. I think I was right. After close to three weeks of unprecedented success, I can safely say that like 90% of all my sales are coming from the novels I've recently published: Demoness I & II, Hellcats 1 & 2, and Women of the Wild: The Dryad. I have seen more purchases for my older stuff, primarily my Complete Seasons and Complete Trilogies, but these pale in comparison to the amount I've seen for my novels.

#3: The Cover Art. Since the beginning, I used basic pink silhouettes against some kind of simple background. It worked, I think, but clearly wasn't massive popular. I've since found a few good artists to create the drawings for my cover art. I've noticed that hand-drawn, somewhat more cartoonish or anime-esque drawings are getting more popular.

#4: A History & Presence. I'm guessing that the fact that I've been doing this for three years so far has helped, probably by embedding me in the Amazon database, and perhaps in a group of readers. I think having a history can make taking advantage of a situation like this easier, and you won't have to scramble quite as much.

There are probably other factors, but I think these are the biggest. But I also think that, overwhelmingly, #1 is the most important. If you don't want to hear how much of a factor luck can play, well, I sure as hell don't like saying it. But let's get onto the actual advice portion of this, and probably why anyone is reading this. I'll make this as concise as I can, since I'm a fan of blunt, point-blank, easy-to-use-and-understand advice.

Honestly, I'm probably going to try and do individual blog posts expanding on each of these.

  • Write Your Ass Off. Seriously, if want to be a successful writer, the first thing you need to understand and commit to is writing. Like, a lot. This needs to be the foundation on which you build your career. You probably need to write every day, to some degree. Writing needs to become second nature. By this point, if I don't write at least something during the course of a day, even days I have set aside to relax, I feel bad. Set a word goal for yourself, I'd say at least 1,000 words per day, do that for a few weeks, or maybe a few months, then up it to 1,500 words per day. Do more if you're feeling particularly inspired, but also hit that minimum even if you're feeling like shit. Taking a day off isn't the end of the world, but don't make a habit of it. I'd say keep building that number up in a similar style until you hit a point that's too much, then ease back a bit. That's probably a good medium. But also re-test this habitually. Basically, the more you write, the more you're building up your endurance for writing. I'm currently doing 5,500 words per day, 5 days out of the week, split between two projects, as a minimum. If there's time leftover in the day, I'll keep working on a third project.
  • Set Goals. I'd say it's a really damned good idea to have an idea of what you want to aim for, both in the short term and the long term. First and foremost, you need to determine what it is you're wanting. Is this a hobby? That's cool. Do you want to build a career out of this? Well, that's going to be quite a bit harder, and it's going to take time. 
  • Temper Your Expectations & Be Very Patient. This is going to take a lot of time, probably. In a way, I got very lucky in the beginning. I started seeing real success within a few months. I exploded, then most of it got ripped away from me and I had to rebuild. Twice. I am not normal. This is going to take time, and you need to be thinking about both the short term and the long term. What are you going to be doing a year from now? Two years? Five? That being said, you also need to be able to be flexible. If something just isn't working, you should probably switch it up. And who knows, maybe it'll work next year, or eight years from now.
  • Finish What You Start. I probably do this to a fault, because I hate leaving things undone, but you need to finish what you start. If you're doing a series and it's not doing as well, I can definitely understand trimming it. I have certainly done this. What I'd more say is you should probably write your books in such a way that you don't have big cliffhangers. If you need to bring the series to an end, or even just take a break, then being able to stop after the current book is always a good idea. That way you won't piss off quite so many fans quite as bad as you would have otherwise.
  • Be Transparent. If you're having problems, tell your fans. If there's some kind of emergency, be it personal, medical, mental, family, whatever, you don't have to spill your guts and let everyone know your business, but you at least need to let fans know that content is going to stop flowing for a few days or weeks or maybe even a few months. Apologize, thank them for understanding, and try to keep at least some form of updates coming out, even if they have to be vague. If you treat them with respect and honesty, fans are typically very understanding.
  • Diversify. I have four different universes that are fairly different from one another, although they each have common themes.  If you're smart, I'd have at least two different series going on at the same time. Though probably no more than three. Cycle through releases. This keeps more fans happy and it gives you a chance to get a break from what you're working on so you don't get burned out by writing just one thing over and over again. And you should probably also diversify not just in genres, like Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Contemporary, etc., but also between Erotica and Romance, have different series that emphasize either the sex or the love story. And also the kinks. Maybe have one series focus a lot on BDSM, another on size play, another on multiple partners, or whatever it is that you're into.
  • Good Cover Art. A lot of people aren't good with visual art. I'm one of them. I learned enough to at least assemble pre-made assets into something at least somewhat presentable. A few things to consider if you're looking to make your own.
    • Don't have too much crap going on. Cluttered covers are visually unappealing, and turn readers off. Keep it simple.
    • Yes, everyone DOES judge a book by its cover. Covers draw people in, content makes them stay. Drawing people in is seriously most of the battle.
    • Study the market and figure out what looks good.
    • Whatever it is, it needs to look good as a thumbnail.
    • If you're looking to do it yourself, I'd say use GIMP. It's free, it's fairly functional, it has a shitload of options. You're going to need patience for it, cause it might make you tear your hair out. Don't know how to do something? Just google it. There is almost certainly a tutorial. Look at it this way: If I can figure it out, you can. I'm not exactly the sharpest crayon in the shed.
    • Pixabay is the way to go if you don't have any money, since basically everything there is free to use in every real capacity. If you've got some money to invest, you'll want ShutterStock. If you're looking for some quick & dirty cover art for cheap, then you want Fiverr.
  • Figure Out What You Give A Shit About. This is important. Basically, you want a balance somewhere between writing what makes you horny, and writing what makes other people horny. This balance is necessary. If you're more business minded, write to market. This doesn't really mean chasing trends, that's not a great idea unless maybe you write REALLY fast. Writing to market is more figuring out what consistently sells in the genre you write in, what people like, and maybe what people hate.
  • Adapt. If something isn't working and you've given it some time, maybe it's time to try something new. Patience is definitely important, but being able to determine when what you're doing just isn't working is crucial. Try new things. Experiment. And that's not just in your writing, but also in your cover art, your product descriptions, your marketing, your social media.
  • Grammar. Edit your book at least once. If at all possible, get someone you trust who knows this shit to give it a once-over. If you can afford it, pay a professional, because you are uniquely unqualified to edit your own work, mainly just because you wrote it, your brain is more than likely going to automatically compensate over mistakes. Like, you actually won't see them. I've missed some pretty obvious shit, because I knew what I intend to write, so my brain just blew past it without noticing I'd written an extra word, or the wrong word. Misspellings very rarely get past me, but only because I've got spell-checker on.
  • Take A Break. I've probably got mild ADD. It's hard for me to stick to something for more than half an hour. Sometimes it's hard for me to stick to something for five minutes. That's why I break it up. Write 500 words, then go play a video game for 15-20 minutes, or read a book, or watch something. Come back, do it again. Sitting down firmly in front of your desk or wherever and telling yourself that you WILL NOT STOP until you've written 2,000 words sounds really cool and dramatic, but it's a pretty good way to fail and probably not write much at all, because there's a good chance you'll come grinding to a halt and think to yourself, How the fuck can I write 2,000 whole words in one sitting? This is way too fucking hard. I guess I just suck as a writer. If you do it the other way, you'll probably be surprised by how well those 2,000 words came out and how fast.
  • Plan. You know what I rely on as little as possible? Inspiration. It's a fickle fucking bitch that can go to hell. If I had written only when inspired, I'd probably have less than a quarter of all my work written by now. Before you get started, sit down and make a plan. The more detailed the better. That way you can take advantage of the burst of inspiration you typically get at the start of a project and get all the cool ideas out onto paper (or the screen) in proper order. Then, when the drudgery sets in, (and it will), you can keep going because you don't need to rely on inspiration. It'll suck, but you at least can force yourself onward.
  • Read. Stephen King once said, "If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write." He was right. Make time for reading. Read at least some every day if you can manage it. Reading keeps you sharp and gives you an idea of how the pros do it.
  • Marketing. I'll be honest, I don't know shit about marketing. I can say that the few marketing things I have tried failed utterly. At some point, I'm going to try a BookBub, because everyone says that it's very worth it, although it's really expensive. You should probably figure out marketing.
  • Get A Website. And probably a Twitter and Facebook. Do it from the beginning. But don't go overboard. Don't forget that what counts is your writing.
  • Don't Trust Success. If you get successful, don't trust that it's going to last. Save as much as you can. Be prudent. Cause yeah, you might have just made 5,000$ this month. What about next month? What about next year? Do you really think you're going to be making 5,000$ a month for a whole year? What about a decade from now? The more you save now, the more debts you can pay off, (is there fucking anyone debt-free in modern day America?), the better you'll be able to ride out the low months. Or maybe even the low years. If you have a job you like, maybe don't quit it.
  • Be Prepared To Act. I started selling like fucking crazy in mid-April, and still am as of early May. As such, I jumped on it and am preparing to release between 3-5 titles per month for the next year. Now, to be completely fair, I have a very strong backlist of re-releases, as I plan on re-releasing all of my older content as novels with updated cover art and formatting. But I'm also going to be working on at least two different novels at all times, trying to hit a minimum word count for both novels every day. If the people show up at your digital door hungry for content, you really need to be prepared to feed them, or they might not stick around.
  • Don't Compare Yourself To Others. Seriously, just...don't. This is fucking toxic. I know. I've been down that road more than once. Comparing yourself to other authors who are more successful than you are is fucking awful. It leads to despair, misery, depression, bitterness, jealousy, hatred. A lot of the time it leads to you hating yourself and wondering why you're such a fucking failure. It can be really hard when you're down on yourself, but you really have to remember that no, this isn't fair. None of it is. Like, seriously, luck is so important. Although there is a bit of correlation between hard work in to success out, there isn't nearly as much correlation as we'd like. You can bust your fucking ass for a few years and still not see success. You can publish your first story and blow up.
  • Don't Feed the Trolls. Don't respond to negative reviews. Like...just don't. I've been lucky in that I haven't gotten many negative reviews, but I've gotten a couple that kind of pissed me off because clearly the person didn't understand the point I was very obviously trying to make. But whatever. I didn't respond, in any capacity. Not only is it a waste of time, it's really just a bad idea. So just don't bother. Plus, I mean, from my perspective, having some bad reviews lends your titles some more legitimacy. Look at a book that has almost nothing but 5 star ratings. That's really suspicious isn't it? Makes you wonder about how legit those reviews are. But that's not quite the case if there's a healthy dose of 1 and 2 star reviews thrown in there. Plus, hey, maybe those lower score reviews actually made a good point and you can learn from that. But if it's some moron blasting your stuff with poorly-written text, you really have better things to do. Like...
  • Keep Writing. Like I said before, you really need to keep writing. I can't emphasize this enough. People want more books from you. Really well-crafted tweets, really awesome re-tweets or shares on Facebook, clever blog posts, cool pictures, this is all stuff that people might like, but never forget that the books come first, always.

There's probably stuff I'm missing to be sure, but this is what came to mind. I hope it helped. Like I said, I'll probably do blog posts to expand on some of these ideas, and others as they come to me.

So if you're reading this and you're just starting out, or you've been at it for awhile, or your sales are in a slump and you feel stuck, hopefully this helped. And I wish you a lot of luck!

Oh yeah, one more thing, check out kboards. There's a LOT of good advice there.

Hellcats 2 Released!

 
 

Hellcats 2 is out right now!

You can purchase it as an eBook for 2.99$ right HERE.

You can purchase it as a paperback for 9.99$ right HERE.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT?: Hellcats 2 is a re-release of previously released content. If you have not read my original Hellcats series, (which is no longer available), then you can safely ignore this section. However, if you are a fan from older times, then here's what Hellcats 2 covers and what's new: Episodes seven through nine and the bonus shorts from Collection Three and The Complete First Season. It also incorporates a short story originally featured in Quickies: Hellcats, Vacation Sex. Finally, I wrote about 14,500 words of new content. So a lot more has been added in this time around.

Here is the official synopsis:

A Sci-Fi Harem Erotica featuring beautiful, badass mercenary ladies!

Ryan and the Hellcats have spent some time together, run a few simple missions, and gotten to know each other...on a very intimate, personal level. Although he still feels like he's a man in a dream almost all of the time, he's beginning to settle into his amazing new life as a mercenary.

After a pair of new women show up, another beautiful brunette Amazonian and silver-skinned sexbot-turned-mercenary, the crew decides that it's high time they indulged in a vacation. Something they haven't enjoyed in quite awhile. They are especially looking forward to it when they learn that this will be Ryan's first real vacation.

They take him to a relaxing paradise of a planet and land on the White Sand Islands, then promptly proceed to rent out the entire top floor a lavish hotel and get right to all sorts of sultry, naughty things. Namely by seeing how far they can take things with their new boytoy without breaking him...

HELLCATS 2 is a novel of casual sex between a human and a host of alien or otherwise inhuman ladies, and definitely features a lot of passionate sex scenes. You have been warned.

Enjoy!

Yep, More Updates

 
Hellcats 2.png
 

In case you missed it on Twitter, there is the official Hellcats 2 cover!

That's Syl, in case you're curious. And yes, you will be able to see her naked at some point in the near future. Either if you're signed up to my Patreon, or if you wait until I eventually release it to the site.

Spoiler: She looks good naked.

Now, for a few updates. There aren't a great deal, as I've been busy yet again with a lot of behind-the-scenes stuff. So I'll get the important information out of the way.

Hellcats 2 is still on track for a May 1st release. I'm going to stop updating my blogspot with posts, though I will update it with new links and covers whenever I release something new. Because I don't really like to leave messes behind, I'm probably going to get rid of it and focus all my efforts on this website sometime this year. Speaking of which, I gave the website an update! I hope it looks better now. I'll also be releasing nudes to my Patreon on a somewhat more regular basis. Still working out some kind of schedule.

That's basically all the important news there really is. If you want, you can leave now. If you want to, you can stick around and listen to me complain about busywork.

As for what I've been doing for the past week...

I've been dealing with problems.

The first big problem was that I realized I actually didn't like an aspect of the new covers I made. Which meant that I had to remake almost ALL 200+ of them. I had given them a dark border, which I ended up not liking, at least not on the sides. I also realized that I actually really didn't like the font I'd settled on for my Post Apocalyptic stuff, so I found a new one.

Another cover-related thing that really jumped out at me was that I'd reused certain silhouettes too often on the Complete Seasons or Trilogies. This cropped up when I took a look at my Amazon page and saw a lot of them stacked together. I've done the best I could because honestly, there's not like a massive surplus of quality silhouettes that I can easily access. I had to make due with what I've found. I'm so glad that I can finally update to hand-drawn stuff. It looks a million times better.

I also found out that I missed updating a few covers randomly, so they stick out like a sore thumb, and I apparently forgot to update the paperback version of Royal Lust. Actually update, I CAN'T update the book to Royal Lust, at least not accurately, because once you set the title of the book, it is LOCKED forever. So that sucks. I retitled it recently to Royal Lust because that is way more accurate. (Not sure what I was thinking back then.) But it's a bit of a moot point since I'm re-releasing it as a stand-alone novel June 1st!

I also tried to customize some more of the silhouettes. I changed the head-branches on Wanderlust #9, which is about a dryad. I added in another elf girl on Wanderlust #5, stuff like that.

Then there's the text documents. I had to update ALL of the links in the back to reflect that I have published Hellcats and Women of the Wild. This used to be a simpler process, but now I have to feed each file through a formatting program, so it's even more time-consuming.

And, on top of that, I had to straight-up redo all the Paranormal Passion ones because I realized that I had accidentally used the same font as all of my Fantasy stuff for the titles, so I had to give them all a new font.

On top of that, I ended up creating over a dozen brand new pages on the site, deciding to make my four universes a bit more accessible, giving each series it's own page and banner. I hope they look cool.

And I went through and posted all the new, updated covers to the blogspot as well.

I also created a new banner for Twitter and my site! I can finally use new drawn characters! I plan on adding to and then switching out characters as more get created.

That's about it. It's times like this that I kind of wish I had...ANY kind of help, so that I don't have to derail the writing for a solid four-five days to deal with this massive build-up of work. But it's just me, sitting in front of a computer for hours on end. I mean, now I have a pair of very talented women helping me by drawing the covers, but otherwise it's all me doing the writing, editing, formatting, publishing, and all the other odds and ends that go with that. And that's probably how it will be for a long time.

But whatever. May will be a relatively quiet month, seeing Hellcats 2 & 3, and Hellcats: The Complete Trilogy. June is when things will start to heat up. I'm going to use this quiet period to get some serious writing done on Demoness III and Parasexual, and seeing if I can plan out another book for Alien Harem that takes place in between the two Seasons.

Wish me luck!

New Release Schedule

So, I've revised my release schedule again. Hopefully for the LAST time, at least when it comes to very large revisions.

The past few days have told me something and provided ample proof to a theory I had been tentatively fostering for a long time: If I write and release longer titles, they will sell better.

And that has happened.

Now, this isn't necessarily life-changing money. I haven't won the lottery or anything. But, well, if things keep going the way they are now, I can at least stop bitching about bills.

So what's different?

Well, basically, for the rest of the year, I plan on having three tiers of releases.

TIER ONE: Old school re-releases. This began with Hellcats, which is now a #1 Bestseller, so apparently there is still a market out there for my older content. I will be re-releasing an older collection twice a month. On the 1st, and on the 15th. And whenever one gets wrapped up, I'll be releasing a Complete Trilogy or a Complete Collection, with some extra content in there, for 9.99$ in eBook format, and 14.99$ in paperback. The Complete Trilogy/Collection will come out two days following the release of the final title in that particular trilogy/series. Example: Hellcats 3 will launch on May 15, so Hellcats - The Complete Trilogy will launch on May 17.

TIER TWO: Parasexual & Haven. These two get their own particular tier because I don't want to cop out on content I've already promised. I was going to release these as episodic short stories, but with how well Demoness and Hellcats are suddenly doing, it's made me reconsider. So I'm just going to release them as novels! Right now, I plan on Parasexual being a four-novel series, and Haven being a trilogy. But if they prove popular enough and if there's enough demand for it, that could extend. I plan on releasing one of these per month, starting with Parasexual on June 10, then Haven on July 10, and so on and so forth.

TIER THREE: My longer novels. Primarily the DEMONESS series right now, since people seemed to react well to it. Due to the nature of writing the longer form stuff, by which I mean Demoness II got away from me and took longer than I thought it would, I can't nail down a completely accurate timetable, but I am going to shoot for a new novel every two months. As it stands right now, I've got pretty solid ideas for DEMONESS III, IV, & V, with a whole world of possibilities after Part V, so I think I'll end it there temporarily and move on to something else. I honestly want to get to Wild Discovery, cause I also really like writing Sci-Fi Erotica, but if Women of the Wild proves to be really popular, I might take some time and pen a few more of those.

I'm going to be fucking busy.

Eventually Tier One will run out, since it has a hard limit: Sex & Survival. That's the last of the titles to be re-released. At my current rate of two titles per month, Sex & Survival 3 should go up sometime in Mid-2019. So...quite a ways off!

Now, Tier Two should theoretically run out by the end of 2018, but there's a few possibilities of extending it. As I mentioned before, Parasexual or Haven might get a few extra sequels if the people really want it, since the way I tell stories is kind of flexible. There's also the possibility of continuing some of my series that I've already considered wrapped up, as not all of them necessarily came to an end. I pretty much leave all my stories open-ended, because of the way I write, but with several of them, I feel like I've said enough. Wanderlust, for example. I can't imagine continuing that with where it ended. Same with Hellcats. It has a pretty solid ending, I think. But some of the others, maybe not so much. I mean, if I got a good enough idea, I could do another Desire. And there's definitely more that could be done with Sex & Survival. I mainly brought that to an end because no one seemed interested in it anymore, but who knows?

Eventually, Tiers One and Two will run out, and will leave me open for nothing but Tier Three. When this happens, I hope to be able to basically just funnel all my time and efforts into writing longer erotica titles, one at a time, and faster. It's my eventual goal to be able to get about one novel out per month. 

So...yeah. Get ready for more longer erotica!

Popular Erotica?

I don't really know how to approach this, because I'm not a particularly subtle or nuanced person. I certainly can't approach it from the point of view of anything resembling social justice, because this thing I'm going to talk about is at least somewhat motivated by my own personal frustrations at getting left behind and overlooked in the erotica market.

Right now, I'm in the middle of updating my entire backlist with new cover art and formatting, in the hopes of appearing a bit more put-together and possibly drawing in additional readers. For the most part, I try not to just fire and forget my stories. Unfortunately, I have over 200 titles, (almost all of them short or collections), so it's taking, like, fucking forever.

But sometimes I peruse the best sellers, or even just check out titles I see in the also bought section of my own works.

I shouldn't. It's a bad idea because it's just depressing. It seems like pretty much everyone else is doing better than me.

What's starting to really get to me though is that it seems like erotica that goes out of its way to intentionally objectify women is selling off the shelves. It's always hitting the top charts. Now...I don't really want to swerve into 'moral high ground' territory, partially because I do write erotica where one guy fucks a lot of women and it pretty much always turns into a harem situation, and partially because I understand the difference between fantasy and reality, and I think pretty much everyone has fucked up fantasies, and that's fine.

So I'm not here to shame people or advocate tearing these stories down or anything. I actually just want to co-exist.

It's just that...when I check out the 1 and 2 star reviews, they almost always say the same things: The women are flat, one-dimensional, useless characters who exist only to be fucked and satisfy the male lead. I mean, that's a pretty common complaint.

To be clear, I don't think I'm an amazing writer, or that I have great characters, but I do at least intentionally try to inject certain things into my writing. Namely, I try to give the female characters some depth, with their own motivations and problems that don't revolve around getting fucked by the main character. Nor do the women rely entirely on him. I try to mix it up, but I frequently feature strong female protagonists and side characters. I try not to make it overt, because I know how easily that gets subverted into other things. I also try to work in themes like consent and respect and trust and communication. Again, I try not to make it overbearing, more just work it into the narrative.

As the author, I don't know how well I do, but no one's really complained so far, so that's something at least.

But I guess what got me really thinking on this was this title called Alpha Online. I don't want to link to it because clearly it has enough exposure and maybe that's just being petty but I'm honestly in a shit mood right now because it's been a really fucking stressful year so far.

Anyway, it's got all the sort of cliched, annoying things I've spent a long time trying to avoid in the description, with the bold-faced words about SEXY, SUBMISSIVE WOMEN just waiting to be DOMINATED BY A TRUE ALPHA. Like, come on, am I the only one who finds that just laughably lame? And I'm not even ripping on the author. I mean, I find this shit in like lots of top-selling erotica. Who are all these people that don't find this blatant, in-your-fucking-face marketing a total turn off?

I guess what I'm really digging at here is...where are all these people who lament how blatantly stupid and pandering erotica writing and marketing has gotten? I mean, I get it, I know that erotica is mainly here as fantasy fulfillment and to get you off. And that's fine. But this is just getting ridiculous.

Where are these people who apparently hate shallow, one-dimension characters and pandering wish-fulfillment fantasies? They apparently have bought a lot of this stuff that they hate, because they're frequently leaving reviews complaining about how much they hate them. So what's preventing them from following that thought train through to the end and seeking out erotica that has more positive views on strong female characters and consent and happy, trusting relationships? Those don't seem to be hitting any of the bestseller rankings.

Like I said, I'm not completely sure how to go about this, and I'm not really trying to tear down anyone else. I just wish me and authors like me would stop getting passed over when we are apparently trying to service an aspect of the market that is being sorely asked for, and yet the askers are just ignoring us.

It's almost like there's an abusive relationship theme in there.

Should I just give up? I don't just 'write whatever sells'. I try to find a happy balance between writing what I want to (and can) write and what people want to read. There's some stuff I won't write because I suck at it and some stuff I'm not so sure about writing because I feel like it would clash with the themes I've been cultivating for over three years now with my works.

But should I just compromise on that? I need to pay my bills, I'm not even asking to be rich or mega successful. I guess I'm just wondering if I should start writing about A HAREM OF HOT SLUTS just begging for TOTAL DOMINATION by a REAL MAN.

Shit, I don't know.
