Literotica: a way to become a better author.



If you are an erotica writer or you are thinking about become one, I have a great tip for you. Submit to Literotica. If you already have, you don’t have to read the rest.

Literotica is a website where you can upload your story and people will read and give you votes. There are many different subcategories, and you don’t have to worry about content. What I mean is, if you want to write a really graphic story you can, as long as everyone is 18 or over.

The site is very simple in its layout and it’s not hard to upload your story. Either copy and paste it into a dialog box or upload a Word file. You do not have to convert to mobi for example.
It does take a few days before your story is online. Once it is you have a very simple dashboard to keep track of how many readers you have, votes and comments.

The best part of Literotica is the interaction with the readers. I have been publishing erotica on Amazon and Smashwords for over a year. I have only published on Literotica for two weeks. During this time I have had more thirty comments, which is more than twice as much on the other sites. They were not only “great story”. The reader actually took the time to tell me what he or she liked and didn’t like about the story. Some went as far as giving editorial advice. If you are a writer this kind of feedback is extremely important. It helps you become a better writer.

Having that said. Some readers suggest you should get an editor. I have been told so and I have seen other authors getting the same advice. As we know, editors can be a friend or a professional, either way some kind of cost is involved, whether it be a six pack of beer or a few hundred bucks. The readers don’t pay a cent for the stories, and after reading some of the comments on some stories I think they should be a little more forgiving. An author should always present his or her best work, but sometimes mistakes happen, but that doesn’t mean the story itself is destroyed.

I strongly suggest you try the site for yourself. If you get a negative comment, leave it alone. Learn from it and move on. Do not get into an argument or you might lose readers.

Keep writing!

Do erotica writers become horny while they write?



The other day I received an e-mail from a reader with a question. He wanted to know if I became excited while I wrote. I assume he meant if I become horny while I write erotica.

I think that most erotica authors at some point become excited while writing, I guess it's a good way of knowing if what you are writing is good or not. I don't know where they get their ideas from but personally I often use my own emotions to write what the characters feel, and when doing that I bring up experiences from the past. So at one time in my life they defiantly made me horny or I wouldn't remember them.
On the other hand, if you write erotica to earn money you might write in a niche that is really your not taste. You do it because you know that the story will sell because there is a demand. In this case I wouldn't become excited, S&M for example.

None of the major publishers publish, incest or bestiality stories, but I suppose some of the writers in those markets have at one time or another had such thoughts, and it excited them. On sites like Literotica writers can basically upload any kind of stories. I think many of the writers there upload stories that excite them. It's free and they make no money doing it, but they get a release from their fantasies. Having said that, I don't think the authors of incest and such stories do it themselves.

So, back to the original question: Does writing erotica excite me? Yes, it does, but only in the niches that I write because I like them, not because they sell a lot of books. For example, my Family affairs books sell well, but it's not something I will or have ever done.

Age diffrence.



I have just finished watching the movie “Unfaithful” with Richard Gere and Diane Lane, I liked it, but it gave me some food for thought.

If you look around on the streets where you live and the restaurants you visit, even at your work you will see a lot more men with younger girlfriends than you would see older women with younger boyfriends, why is that?

The most common response is, “he has money”. OK, let’s assume that younger women are drawn to older men with money, it is justified. Well, what about older women with a lot of money? Ask any gigolo and he will tell you, “Yeah, plenty of older women want my services.” But we are not talking about paid sex; I am talking about real emotions here, love, attraction etc. Why are there more older men with younger women than vice versa?

I think the simple reason is that men are attracted to women because they like the way she looks. And women, including myself, are attracted to the way men think. So, if you take your average twenty-five year old male, what would he be looking for in a woman? A firm ass, nice boobs, a slender body and so on. What would a woman at the same age be looking for? Maturity, a steady income, an intellectual man, a man who doesn’t stay out late watching football and drinking beer with his friends.

What I think, and you are welcome to argue my points, is that women look for security, love, a relationship, and men who will be there to support them in the good and the bad. Men look for more physical values like a great body, and that’s why you don’t see many fifty-year old women with twenty-five year old boyfriends.

I’m an erotica writer and I spend a lot of time watching people and how they interact. I have seen many hard bodied young men who I would just love to take home and have a fun night with, but why don’t I? It’s rather simple, what the heck do we talk about in the morning? Maybe his next party, the football game that’s on at night, or his new jeans? We have nothing in common, except sex. While sex is fun, it’s not something to build a steady relationship on. A relationship needs communication, respect, common interests, and so much more.

About vampire romance and erotica.



What’s up with the vampire stories? You see them in books and short stories, even on TV. The handsome lonely young man with that sad look in his eyes stalks the young girl that he is obsessed with and then when she finds out, she falls madly in love with him.
I do not have anything against Vampire stories, I think they are rather cool, but if you take your average romance or erotica vampire story it is often a reflection of a crime, stalking.

Do we as women fantasize about being followed by a blood sucker and deep inside we want to be bitten and enter the world of the dead? Not me, I like being alive.
I have read a few and apart from Interview With a Vampire, which is not romance nor erotica they all have the same theme. In IWV at least there were an honest to god struggle between the characters and when Lestat converts Claudia both he and Louise realize what they have done, and they both suffer the consequences.

Going back to the romance and erotica. We have a girl in her late teens sometimes even a minor who is stalked by a vampire. When he makes himself known to her, she feels excited because it is the first time a man is interested in her. Now, why would she? I mean the guy is creepy, dead, and probably smells pretty bad. What makes this kind of story so popular with younger women? I have no idea, but I would love to know.

Moving on, I wrote an erotic story, but I can’t publish it on Amazon, I think. Why? The werewolf has sex with the young women while he is a wolf. That would be bestiality according to Amazon. Does anyone know if they make exceptions to the rule when it comes to fantasy?

Have a great week everyone and I hope you had a wonderful Halloween, with or without vampires.
