Cum? The Halloween special for 2016 is up on Kindle and should be published soon! This is the first published work, and the upcoming Vol 01, “Take Her” will be published soon. It is off to the editor for proofing, but finished! Whew!
So you’re aware, and if you’re interested in starting to write books, I started the Hill family stories in the end of August, and now, a full month and a half later, I have two finished books over 20k words each. It isn’t too difficult with erotica, because each scene is about the sex, or it is in my books. So far, I want to focus more on the actual ‘getting it on’ action versus the long drawn out tension building of most romance books.
Now, I just pulled up my statistics and the Halloween special is at 29k words, almost at 30k (100 shy :() And the book, “Hill’s Secrets: Vol 01 “Take Her” Alison’s story” is at 51k words.
So that is about 80k words in less than a month, and I haven’t even been writing full time every day. It is entirely possible to pump out a compelling story and an interesting world in a short amount of time.
I would say I spent much of my time re-editing, reviewing, and planning, and the other half sitting down to write for a few hours every week. Yes, there were some days where I wrote more than others, and they tended to be the best days of writing where I had the best prose, but there were other short stints that had just as good material.
I’ve read a number of books on how to write well, and quickly, and it starts with knowing what you are going to write before you sit down and start doing it.
When I planned out the Halloween special, I knew that I wanted Alison to hook up with 3 vampires. I didn’t know exactly what they wanted with her, or how they would each be unique, but those details filled themselves in when I set the setting and their general demeanor first.
I’m a little troubled by the third vampire and his homosexuality. I think it is a bit demeaning to gay men to suggest that they need to fuck a girl in the ass just because they’re gay and that is the only way they can get off being with a girl. I don’t really believe that. I included it, because, well, anal sex is risque, it is taboo, and the idea of a gay vampire anally fucking a girl is kinda funny. It plays on the common zeitgeist of how we think about gay men: anal sex. That is all changing, and good, and I’m sure that I can help turn that thought around with better writing, but I didn’t do it here.
Here is the cover art for the Halloween Special 2016. There are 3 sexual stories for Alison, 1 story for Billy, and 1 story for Will and Jess (Dad and Mom). Each member of the family will have a standalone book about 50k words, that details their sexual lives. I intend on writing in this order: Alison, Billy, Will, Jess. Right now “Take Her,” Alison’s story is finished and going through editing, and I’m writing Billy’s story, tentatively named, “Abusing the Game.”
Next up in the holiday series will be a short series for the Hill family and Thanksgiving. I’m thinking about Alison having a solo scene where she masturbates to a sexy uncle, but without any additional help (no incest). Billy will have an older woman rendezvous just before the ‘big meal,’ and Will and Jess (my happy married couple) will release some Thanksgiving stress either before or after the extended families show up. I haven’t decided yet. Opinions?
