Awesome erotica for awesome adults only
I’ve been pretty quiet lately, haven’t even been keeping up with Mistress Lisa’s ordeal. That’s partly because I’ve been busy working and partly because I’ve been busy writing.
Over the past couple weeks I’ve been tweeting religiously about Kinklectic’s Cupid’s Secrets Anthology and I’m proud to say we got it up to nearly the top 1000 paid book on Amazon. That’s not bad considering the absolutely huge amount of books out there. Bear in mind, that’s not the top 1000 in Erotica, it’s the top 1000 paid books period.
I’ve also been working on my first full-length novel, tentatively titled Cat & Crow. It’ll follow the exploits of a couple characters I came up with for Kinklectic’s Secret Lives anthology that we put out back in Halloween. It’s been fun creating a story about a demon moving quietly around the town and the tough-guy fixer and the young witch who get stuck hunting it down. It’ll have action and romance and crazy kinky sex and magic and it’s shaping up to be a wild ride. I haven’t hit the first sex scene, but I can see it on the horizon.
Writing a full novel is a different experience from writing a short story or a novelette (10-15k words). Those types of stories trend toward the linear model of writing; set up a plot and let it rip. Keeping the story moving and entertaining over a much longer (planning 70k+ words) allows me more freedom to explore the characters and their motivations as well as build a world for them to inhabit.
It’s the world building that I’m having the most fun with. Establishing the rules of witchcraft and the limitations of demonic power are great. The physicality of Crow is easier. He’s human, but somewhat versed in this magical underworld, arguably more so even than my witch Selena. She may have deeper knowledge about some things but she’s still learning. In time she’ll be pretty fearsome but she’s still limited by her skills and the fact that she started learning later in life than most witches would have.
It makes for an interesting balance of power and interaction between two people with different capabilities.
Stay tuned, I’ll be posting little snippets here and there and expounding on their world.
