How to make a pornographer’s day

tumblr_mbz4jn4DJf1qgdgsco1_1280

I submitted Rainbow Party to an online contest, and found this lovely gem of a comment this afternoon:

I will give you one thing, Huck, you are a daring man. I’ve never read anything by you that wasn’t ambitious, controversial, and served raw with the red part showing.

For my part, I love your style. It’s great. Like a gut punch, it takes your breath away and leaves you open-mouthed, ready for the ram-rod of tight, true, uncomfortable stories that you always seem to have on the menu.

Your stories are unapologetic, fiercely so, painfully so, at times. Yet, this story was sexy and sensual and sinister and sweet, all at once.

I don’t know how many fans you will make with your writing–it’s fucking sentence sandpaper, abrasive and rough–but count me as one.

I think you have a ton of talent. This was an excellent story, as colorful and hard to swallow as the dicks at that party.

There you have it my friends. A pornographer’s day has been made!

I’m already seeing a bunch of “sales” come through and I couldn’t be more pleased. If you like the work, please consider leaving a review or a rating. Huck loves the feedback. And books with reviews tend to do a little better in the market, too.

Go to the page for the book and use the code in the checkout.

Jennifer Needs a Job

Jennifer-Needs-a-Job

Jennifer Needs a Job is live at Smashwords!

This is my new idea for short stories, and I wanted to see what people think of the concept. The idea is to use the same general plot for each story, but invest in making the characters seem vivid and real. So, for example, it’s always the same sex act (a blow job). But there’s always a different reason for the character to go down on her (or his!) knees.

Also!

There is always a creampie!

So it’s blow jobs and creampies.

For every story.

I don’t know.

I am going to see what I can do with it.

But Jennifer Needs a Job is a great story. Check it out! This one is on me. The Smashwords code for the next 30 days is: JK66A.

If you like it, please consider leaving a review! Books with reviews do a little better in the market.

Thank so much for your help!

The Choking of a Beautiful Girl by the Bastard George Clooney

Bastard-George-Clooney

A beautiful girl finds herself at the mercy of a Mexican drug lord.  You can read it now, for free, at Smashwords.

Here is a Smashwords code for 100% off the list price: CY98D.  The code is good until July 4th. Enjoy! Here is a little more about the story:

Lisa is young. Beautiful. She is a little bit shallow, but it’s not something she notices about herself. She goes to Mexico for a little fun. Some excitement. She would not have picked Mexico, because she is a bigot, but her boyfriend takes her. He tells her it’s all on him. Top shelf all the way. He gets the best room at a fancy casino. It’s the presidential suite. But then something goes wrong, and Lisa finds herself face-to-face with her own limitations. Fortunately for her, she meets Americo, a Mexican drug lord who is only too happy to help her imagine herself differently. Perhaps even as an entirely new person!

As a bonus, I also added the story A Small Favor, which first appeared in Summer Shorts. Trivia – The Lisa in A Small Favor is the same Lisa as in The Choking of a Beautiful Girl by the Bastard George Clooney. She ends up in Carnal (all roads lead to Carnal!) where the men finally treat her right. Ha!

 

Huck Pilgrim gets in bed with Selena Kitt (so to speak…)

I am so proud to announce that Dirty Business has been accepted by eXcessica for publication. If you didn’t know, the amazing Selena Kitt is the owner and publisher at eXcessica. I traded a few emails with her last week and let me tell you, dear reader, Huck is pumped. Selena is one of my favorite authors. I read UNDER MR. NOLAN’S BED and could not put it down people. It’s an amazing, powerful, HOT, erotic story.

I am feeling so privileged and blessed to get to work with such a talented author.

But why am I publishing Dirty Business with eXcessica when it’s been available for the last two years? Ah, that’s the thing. The latest rewrite of Dirty Business got it banned from Amazon. After two years in the Kindle store, Amazon blocked it. I lose all my reviews and history. I am bummed. As I was discussing this sorry state of affairs, one of my contacts at ERWA, the talented and wise Lisabet Sarai, suggested trying to get Selena’s help.

I submitted and the rest is, as they say, history. Selena gave me some advice on the blurb, the title and the cover art. If you’ve been following along, you know that Dirty Business is one of my most troublesome titles. It was also banned over at Apple right out of the gate. Selena distributes to a wider set of venues that I do with my little smashwords and Amazon accounts, so I am hopeful that this partnership will be a good and profitable thing for both me and eXcesscia.

I’m just really tickled to work with such a pro.

I can’t wait to see Dirty Business go out under the eXcessica flag. It just feels awesome to be selected, you know?

Killer pr0n: the baton blog hop

I’ve been invited to participate in the baton blog hop, a collaborative effort of erotica writers to promote good stories and better writing. I am going to answer the following four questions, and then pass the baton to three other writers you really ought to read.

  1. What are you working on?
  2. How does your erotica differ from other erotica?
  3. Why do you write erotica?
  4. How does your writing process work?

What are you working on?

I’m putting the finishing touches on a dark erotic thriller, about the sex lives of people who live in a small town called Carnal, and how their lives intertwine over the course of one summer. I’m still looking for a name for it, but it’s a collection of previously released titles, including American Girl, Dirty Business and Bench Warrant.

Here is a little snippet:

Gloria Dean goes to Carnal to escape the harsh judgment of her family and friends, but soon discovers she can’t escape her harshest critic. Rafia Saad is a shy girl who wants to transform herself into someone new, but she doesn’t realize that these transformations always come at a cost. Joe Murphy thinks of himself as a straight shooter, always eager to help his neighbors, but he is a man and sometimes even a good man loses his way. As summer closes, these three find their lives hopelessly intertwined. In the small town of Carnal, everyone is driven by desire, and no one leaves town a virgin.

How does your erotica differ from other erotica?

Almost all my stories take place in a small town named Carnal, where none of the rules for Romantic Erotica apply. I like exploring the line between a character’s own desire and society’s expectations of them. My work is often dark and realistic. A lot of my male characters are married men, cheating on their wives. The women in my stories often know exactly what they want and how they’re going to get it. If there is a teenager in my stories, that person is typically trying to come to grips with his or her own powerful needs, in the face of some trickster working against them for their own benefit. I like power plays. I like Devil’s Deals, blackmail and dubious consent. My stories are like the Breaking Bad of erotica. It’s not that I hate happy endings, it’s that I don’t like telling bad stories.

Why do you write erotica?

I find it very empowering. I have been an intensely sexual person all my life, but have always had to hide my desires. Now it feels good to write the stories I’d like to read. Because of my experience, I feel as if the stories I write are uniquely mine. No one else is going to write about the things I write about, in the ways I write about them. My biggest limitation is my own writing ability, but I am getting better with every story I write. I am teaching myself to write fiction by writing what interests me most. Right now it’s erotica.

How does your writing process work?

Sometimes I take something that happened to me and embellish it. Sometimes I take something someone told me and go in a different direction. Often the stuff that happens in real life is weighted by a complicated morass of conflicting feelings. I try to keep as much of that as possible. If you want to tell a good story, it’s got to have a basis in reality. But I also try to keep my eye on the purpose of the story—it’s got to be hot. You have to find ways to keep the reader engaged.

Sometimes I take something that turns me on. It can be anything. Sometimes it’s a scene from a porn flick I watched at a friend’s house many years ago. Sometimes it’s a newspaper article. Whatever it is, it’s just the raw material. You have to invest in the characters, imagine what they’re saying, what they’re feeling, what they’re wearing. I often do a treatment to get started. I try to write anywhere from 50 to 500 words about the story. If I can find some way in, I take the story on. For me, finding a way into the story means finding a character that comes to life in the treatment, or a situation that seems really interesting and doable. If any of that happens, I start drafting the opening scene. I tend to write in sequence from first scene to last. Once I have a complete draft, I cut the stuff that seems to slow the story down, even if it’s a scene I really like a lot. You have to ruthlessly commit to the story or it just doesn’t work.

And now it’s time for me to pass the baton.


Check out these awesome erotica writers!

Sybil Rush is currently a research scientist and erotica writer. However, she has been, at various times, a striptease artist, an enlisted soldier, and a midwife. Her stories can be found in Valentine’s Day (Stringybark Press), and Shameless Behavior (Go Deeper Press).

Michele Micheal Rakes lives in a small town in the shadow of a big mountain. She works as a surgical technologist assisting in the removal of testicles and penile implants. She has three grown children, two psychotic Egyptian Mau’s, a husband with hair down to his ass, and two Harley’s. Her latest release is Cold Darkness (MuseItUp Publishing).

Elliot DeLocke was born in small town Australia and raised in big city Asia. He works in an office by day and writes by night. He’s interested in fantasy, horror, feminism, history, and how sexuality connects them all together. He’s battled wildfires and insomnia to be here and is grateful to have the chance to share his stories.

Dirty Business gets new art

dirtybusiness

This is cover I’m considering for the new edition of Dirty Business. I think I’m going to call it Dirty Business (Black Thug Domination). Or maybe Interracial Domination? Interracial seems like such a clinical word. Like something you would see in a sociology class.

Bench Warrant gets a new look

BenchWarrantBlur

I’ve been fooling around with covers again. I’m so pleased with the results of the new American Girl cover, that I decided to spruce up Bench Warrant in a similar way. To go with the new art, I gave Bench Warrant a new subtitle, similar to the subtitle I used for American Girl, which now includes (Gangbanged and Dominated). For Bench Warrant I went with Bench Warrant (Humiliated and Gangbanged). Ha-ha, I should create a random word generator for these subtitles.

American Girl is getting a lot of action at Barnes & Noble. If it is because of the subtitle and cover art, I hope to reproduce the magic with Bench Warrant (Humiliated and Gangbanged). If it works, look for more subtitles and covers in the weeks to come. One down side of the suggestive subtitles is that Amazon makes them a little harder to find in searches. This is troubling, but probably for the best as the moral majority seems to search for naughty titles and rally against the most egregious. Which means no profits and no one wants that.

What do you think of the new look? Egregious subtitles? I want to know in a comment down below. If anyone wants to check out the work, leave me a comment and I’ll respond with a free code for Smashwords. Why? I’m just a nice guy. But I also really want to know what people are thinking.

You can get a copy of Bench Warrant with the new art at Amazon or Smashwords. I just uploaded it, so it’s going to take some time to propagate through the Smashwords distribution system.

She wants to be in pictures

TeensSelfShot04

This is Nicki Pearl.

She’s eighteen, about to graduate high school. When her father isn’t looking at porn, he worries about his little girl.

She just lost her mother and now she’s acting out. Her father thinks that maybe he ought to do something for little Nicki, but he’s not sure what. She’s taking pictures of herself, so maybe get her started on a modeling career? He asks one of the photographers from work to help him out. Meanwhile, he marries one of the make-up artists from work. This woman is really good in bed, but she’s not so good with Nicki. He insists his new wife pitch in to help his daughter in her modeling career. He marshals all his forces with a single goal in mind. He wants his little girl to be a success. A smash hit.

He is her father, after all.

You know what?

He gets his wish.

But then he wishes he didn’t get it.
