I’ve decided to start publishing my erotic stories in paperback for those who like to hold something while they read. Just be careful and don’t get the pages all stuck together as they are hard to peel apart.
My decision to offer my smut in paperback was generated by my beautiful Luddite wife, who loves to read but needs to feel it. It’s like the old saying, “I buy you books and all you do is eat the covers!” Well, Foxy doesn’t eat the covers but refuses to read on an electronic device such as cell phones, tablets, PCs, or Macs. But you have to make certain concessions to have arm candy.
Wifey was the inspiration for my latest story, In My Dreams, which is based upon a dream she had about a woman like Sybil. Sybil is a story that’s been around for a long time about a woman who has a multiple personality disorder. She has a bunch of people living inside her who come out and help her cope with stressful situations.
Pixie in the story suffers a tragic loss when her parents are killed in a car wreck. She was always sheltered by her parents, who feared everything, especially horny males. Check this link for more on In My Dreams or click here to grab a copy in Print or Electronic format.
House Party which currently has four stories in the series is about our intrepid swinger couple, Foxy and Larry, who attend a house party. For the uninitiated, a house party is a euphuism for a swinger’s party, where you get together and throw your house keys in a bowl (not really, but that’s what everyone thinks!).
In real life, we’ve always enjoyed the Lifestyle (another euphuism LOL) and up until now I’ve never written a bad word about wife swapping. In an attempt to create conflict in my stories, I decided to break up the fictional version of Foxy and myself. But I couldn’t bring myself to us fighting and decided this was the best alternative.
Anyway, Foxy runs off to LA and becomes a porn star. For more on the House Party series, click this link.
Finally, I’ve got all of that out of the way and I can talk about what I really wanted to. Creating print versions of my stories! Whew!
Amazon will help an author create print versions and given the electronic format, can easily create a paperback version of the story. Of course, yours truly is never one to take the easy path and assumes if pain is involved, it must be better. I think Lisabet Sari is rubbing off on me.
Over my life, I’ve worn different hats and with one, I used to volunteer for a number of publications doing desktop publishing (DTP) and creating ads and posters. Working commercially with other professionals, I discovered several software packages that no one has ever heard of outside the commercial production of print materials.
As such I’ve used CorelDRAW extensively and QuarkXPress, which are expensive software packages used to create the masters for all types of print and electronic materials.
I’ve always wanted my wife to read my smut as she has such good ideas along with a really dirty mind. She’d love to be a phone sex operator or a sex blog but has an issue with scheduled events.
I’ve just published In My Dreams and now today House Party is released in print format for your wanking pleasure. Just please clean up after yourself!
In My Dreams was a little bit of a struggle as I haven’t used QuarkXPress in a while and had to relearn some of the idiosyncrasies of the package. Then last weekend, I created the print version of House Party which is over 250 pages. It went much quicker as it didn’t involve as much headbanging. Flushed with excitement, I’m now going to publish most of my current erotica in print format.
If you like to read erotica, I highly recommend Kinky Literature for all your smut. They offer only the best authors of erotic literature for your reading pleasure. The cost is the same but you get the satisfaction of supporting a company that feels the same way you do. They offer stories in both electronic and print formats.

I’m Larry Archer and I write erotic stories for the huddled and yearning masses. Foxy and I are swingers in real life and I write about the things we do and see. While the Lifestyle is not for everyone, it’s been fun for us. My smut is explicit and hardcore but with a somewhat plot. My porn stories are generally positive and fun as this reflects how enjoyable swinging has been to us. If you’re interested in checking out my stories, I publish at all the typical outlets.
i too have done DTP and marketing literature through the years, but have always stayed in the microsquish world, since that’s the software my company provided.
heck when i started i used a Macintosh . the original one. Word on that OS was light years ahead of what was on the PC at that time.
got pretty proficient in those programs over the 30+ years i’ve been doing it.
been playing with Publisher quite a bit lately and it helps that there’s a lot of common aspects with Word. just enough differences to generate the odd whiskey tango foxtrot.

I still use Windows on my desktop machines but love using my new MacBook Pro laptop. The Mac OS is so much smoother than Windows.
Believe me, though, I am not a fan of pain in most contexts!

True, It’s a lot more fun for me when Foxy dons one of her “outfits” and corrects one of her slaves!
