My original plan was to launch 8 erotica/romance stories at the same time and cross link them. I was told that’s how it’s done, and from research it seemed to hold true.
Unfortunately by the time I started getting into my “erotica project”–some months after I wrote ‘A Burglary with Lust‘–it was already too late. I did however manage wrap up ‘Let’s Hook Up in Real Life‘ before I abandoned my venture into the dark side of storytelling.
Basically, these two stories have been dusting in my ‘finished’ bin for over a year (mid-2016). Since I probably wont be writing any more romance/erotica to fill this imaginary quota, it’s time to publish!
The truth is totally that I’m only doing this so I can claim I published more than one story this year!
I have to say though, they deserve to be published. They’re both great quality stories way above what you would expect in the erotica genre.
So why did I end up writing not one, but two smut pieces? Because I was hired to. I’m not a sellsword or anything, but it was kinda fun to try something different, especially since I never made real money on my writing before, so the promise of a payday was a good motivator. Yeah, I was hired as a ghostwriter.
When ghostwriting, there is a set of instructions on things to include such as characters (yes, his name apparently has to be Con Artist) and plots. Honestly, with what I had to work with, I think it turned out exceptionally well. She asked me to include the most ridiculous things like a corrupt judge who apparently could ignore the jury and put people in jail left and right. The ‘bad boy biker’ wasn’t even supposed to appear in the story until the very last chapter (breaking the first rule of writing). Etc. So. Really. I did exceptionally well with the mess I was handed.
Despite all that effort it turns out I was about to be scammed and wouldn’t get paid, so I pulled out and been sitting on the finished product ever since.
So anyway, here they are, with a new pen name, specifically created for erotica stories:
Enjoy!…or something xD
Note that LHUiRL is a short story at ~5k words, while ABwL is a novelette at ~10k.
