As I’ve said numerous times, “Focus and finish the last thing before starting the next project!”
As usual, my New Year’s resolution was thrown under the bus before the first week in January was history. If I finished the over one-hundred stories I’ve got in my Draft folder, I’d be busy for the next couple of years. I’ve managed to publish over 30 novels, but to say I’ve got a backlog is an understatement.
My House Party (HP) story started as a single novel, it is now spanning three books, and I don’t expect to type the final “The End” for at least two more stories in the series. HP and HP2 are in the can (Hollywood speak), and HP3 is very close to release. Each one of the first three books is 80-90,000 words each. A typical paperback novel is 75-100,000 words, so if we add up HP + HP2 + HP3, we are starting to reach Stephen King’s The Stand size, yet with no end in sight.
Then there is the “cuckold Club Series,” with the first book “First Date,” in the wild and three more in the works.
While off-topic, a brief note of capitalizing certain words in the world of swingers, so you don’t think I’ve been smoking too much dope.
cuckold – The husband of a cuckold – Hotwife couple. cuckolds are men who love to watch their Hotwives having their brains fucked out by Bulls. Never capitalize “cuckold” to emphasize his minimization in the couple.
Hotwife – The other half of the cuckold couple. Hotwife is always capitalized to show her dominance over her husband. The typical Hotwife is a MILF around fortyish, often blonde, and insatiable. She has needs her smaller, shorter husband cannot fill or reach.
Bull – The big dicked guys who take care of the Hotwife. Bulls are often younger as they require the stamina of youth to keep up with the Hotwife’s demands for satisfaction and fulfillment.
In a perfect world, we have the Hotwife surrounded by her Bulls, hopefully at least three to ensure all her holes are full. The cuck is standing by the bed with his little dick in his hand, watching as his Hotwife is getting stuffed from both ends. Often the cuckold is trying to video the action and jerk off at the same time. This way, he can watch his wife in action at any time on his phone or computer. His movies tend to be jerky as it’s hard to hold the camera still while abusing himself.
In real life, our closest friends are a cuckold – Hotwife couple. She is the perfect example of a Hotwife, older but with a fantastic body, relatively large boobs, blonde curly hair, blue eyes, and a nymphomaniac. He likes to hide in the closet as we service his wife. He says that being in the closet makes it easier to pretend that he’s caught her in bed with the milkman.
Initially, she wasn’t into girls, but my wife quickly cured her of that deficiency. Besides, when Foxy sits on her face, it helps to hold down the screaming; otherwise, the neighbors might call the police.
See how I’ve completely drifted off my original topic?
As a photographer, I love to photograph women, and I’ve just created my latest story cover image, shown above. As you can see, the name of the story is a question mark as I don’t know what to call it.
My biggest publishing house is Amazon Kindle books, and you have to be uber careful with the title or the blurb of the story. My stories always include characters who are eighteen years of age or older, yet that doesn’t always fly with Amazon. If you have a cover or title implying school girls, it’s almost certain that they will put you in the dungeon. In the “dungeon,” your story is hidden from the world and difficult to sell if no one can find it.
Legal or not, you have to make sure that your characters are of age to avoid the censor’s pen. I try to tread on the edge of the cliff but not step over the line.
In this book, I’m thinking of a more experienced woman seducing a naive woman. But what I should be doing is finishing one of my stories before starting another. My stories tend to have a lot of girl-on-girl action, which is a hot topic for me.
Most of my cover images tend to have women who resemble my wife as she’s my favorite model. Kodak would probably have gone out of business years ago if we had never met. A while back, I reviewed all of my cover images. It was amazing to see how many look like her.
I married way above my pay grade and can’t believe she said yes! I’ve been involved in photography for most of my life, and we met at a photography club Christmas party. She’s a typical model, gorgeous, almost six-foot, slender, medium boobs, and curly brunette hair. Sort of like Bella Hadid with lots of hair.
She has big hair, as we say in Texas and while it’s went out of style years ago, gives her an erotic look like an 80s porn star. When we met, she had straight hair, which is a constant battle for someone with naturally curly hair.
I used to iron her hair to ensure it was flat, and she’d use chemicals to straighten it. One day, I told her to try just letting it go natural, and the result was her big head of hair like those girls in a GEICO commercial.
These days, they call it a Diva cut, and there are only a couple of hairstylists in Las Vegas who are certified to do that style of cut. The hair is cut dry instead of wet because the stylist needs to see how the hair lays.
This post was supposed to be about the cover image of two girls I’ve picked for my next story and, as usual, have bounced all over the place.
For more on my stories, check out my catalog at: LarryArcher.blog/stories. I publish on Kinky Literature, Amazon, SmashWords, Apple iBooks, Scribd, and Barnes & Noble, among others.
I write erotic HEA stories full of explicit sex between the partners. My stories are about consensual coupling between willing partners. While a lot of my stories include cheating wives, there is no animosity or divorce.
In the swinging world, couples can experiment with others and enjoy sex without the problems which arise when you start banging your secretary, sorry administrative assistant. It may be hard to believe, but swingers have an almost zero divorce rate and nothing compared to the fifty-percent divorce rate among marrieds.
Swingers have a casual attitude about sex, which is reflected in my stories. The explicit scenes described are maybe a little over the edge for swingers but certainly in the realm of possibility.
I remember when we were at a swinger’s conference, and I walked into the gym to find about thirty people, watching my wife and another girl, both buck naked, going at it. What do you do when you catch your wife having sex with another girl? Unzip your pants and join everyone else jacking or Jilling off.
Our experience in the Lifestyle influences the content in my stories, and hopefully, you can picture yourself in a similar scene.
I don’t write erotic romance where you have to wait until the last page for someone to get their finger or dick wet. I haven’t figured out how to put a sex scene on the title or copyright page, but I am working on it.
My stories are what’s known as “stroke stories,” and if you’re old enough should remind you of the books you used to buy at the adult book store or from under the counter of the 7-11.
However, my stories don’t have the audacious spelling errors or poor writing that you’d come to expect from some pervert’s Underwood. Stories can have both a plot and be erotic at the same time.
Erotica by Larry Archer is meant to be read in the bathroom with the door locked or under the sheet with a flashlight. As you should assume, my stories always have a humorous bent and read for pleasure, not angst.
“See how I’ve completely drifted off my original topic?”
I adore the cover photo. Absolutely scrumptious. However, neither of these lovelies looks like the “older woman”.
Keep up the good work. I’ve given up trying to instill any discipline… I guess that’s Foxy’s job anyway.

One author who seems to push the envelop successfully at Amazon is MC Sizematters.
I recall you had to change the cover of one of your books (Seduced by the Darkside?) because they objected to the photo.
He seems to succeed with photos that are far more suggestive and reveling than that cover.
His descriptions are also quite explicit, but he does a good job of substituting for the obvious red flag words.

Some authors have more luck than I do. Once they throw you in the dungeon, it’s a bitch to get out and this is typically done when you first release a story. Amazon never tells if they threw you in or why they did it. There used to be an app that you could easily figure out if your story was ranked “adult” but they have tightened up on what 3rd party users of their API are allowed to do. It takes a number of steps now and the bottom line is that the first 30 days of a new story is what matters.
After 2-4 weeks, Amazon downgrades your rating and if you’re fighting to get out of the dungeon, you’ve lost the best sells by the time you escape. Then sometimes you never get out and never get a good reason why. I try to be careful when dealing with Amazon as it’s a lot easier to get into the dungeon then it is to escape.
They told me it was the cover of Seduced by the Dark Side, that they objected to and the only reason I could figure is that the girl’s nipples sort of showed through her t-shirt. That image is one of my favorites and it aggravated me to have it blocked.
If MC Sizematters can do it, my hat’s off to him. I try to tread cautiously now to avoid dealing with them. If they would publish definitive rules or tell you what they object to, that would help but we don’t live in a perfect world.
There was a story published a couple of years ago that Amazon was hyping really hard and it involved a 25-year-old teacher who seduced her 14-15-year-old boy student. To me that was clearly over Amazon’s rules but I must have gotten a half dozen emails from Amazon telling me to buy it? Clearly a double standard. I can’t remember the name but it had the name of a large Florida city in the title like Miami.
I took a quick look at his covers and they are not that bad as far as Amazon is concerned. I need to read some of his stories for a better opinion.
His McGuffin is that there is a special type of weed that grows on a Caribbean island and when women smoke it they become incredibly horny Size Queens.
Of course, the natives to that island are all massively endowed and so the inevitable happens.

LOL Thanks Mark.
Some of his stuff is still on asstr.org if you want to check it out for free.
His F*ck Weed is there and he told me it was essentially the same as what’s at Amazon. Excepting the cover art 😉
