Do Authors Run Out of Words?

It may be me, but it seems that my popular authors have all jumped the shark. When I’m not writing smut, I like to read crime and suspense stories by authors such as Patterson, Connolly, Brown, Koontz, Grisham, et. al.

I guess after making your first one hundred million dollars, you can start to sluff off and let someone else write for you. Nowadays, you pick up a book with your favorite author’s name splashed across the cover. Then in small type, you’ll see that some other aspiring author wrote the story.

Even books written by the original author seem to have gone downhill. For example, I just finished 6:20 from David Baldacci and was confused throughout the entire story. It didn’t seem to make sense in many places, and the book just seemed to jump around. I typically buy everything from one of my favorite authors sight unseen, but I’m starting to rethink that.

I’m beginning to wonder if you have a gas tank of words and went the needle points to empty, you have to pull over and abandon it on the side of the road. Possibly they should take up another profession while they still have a good name.

This may be another thing you can blame on COVID, Polio, or Monkeypox. It’s like the ZZ Top song about the girl who likes to play Russian Roulette and loads all six. However, I’m more of a Buckcherry fan, “I’m young and dumb and full of cum with a sugar-loaded candy cane!”

Foxy has been bitching about the fact poker is still not back to normal. Some of the casinos have shut down the perks that serious players get. Many of the Diamond Clubs are closed, meaning no free food or drinks. Bummer. She still gets free valet and parking, which has been taken away from the riff-raff.

Traffic has become a nightmare on the freeway running down the side of The Strip. In addition, we now have two sports arenas on the side of the strip, and all of the electronic traffic signs warn the locals to stay away when a game is scheduled.

I think I’ll see if Wifey will give me a blowjob to improve my mood on this Saturday afternoon. Then I need to try and finish The Perfect Wife, my latest smut story.

Oh, the picture has nothing to do with the post. I just like the shot! There is something about long legs that I love.

Larry Archer provides all the best stroke material, which is written from a first-hand perspective and includes situations that are believable and real.

I’m Larry Archer, a simple writer of smut stories in both print and electronic format. 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.

  1. Hi, Larry,

    Part of the problem is that really popular authors are frequently writing the same book over and over again. That can get deadly dull (and it’s the reason J.K. Rowling and other super-popular authors sometimes invent secret pseudonyms so they can explore other genres).

    Consistency in giving readers what they like is one key to success, a critical component of “branding”. On the other hand, it can be the kiss of death for creativity.

    I have a general rule regarding judging mainstream authors.

    If their name is in larger font on the cover than the title, stay away.

    For me, that signifies what they consider more important.

    I’m more of a Sci-Fi/Fantasy fan, and there are a few authors who I’m likely to take a deep look at whatever they write, that is I’ll take a look at what any given book/series is about and decide if that’s for me.

    For contemporary authors, I’m fond of Lindsay Buroker, although, she does seem to have a fixed set of characters that she juggles and/or mixes together in each book, MR Forbes is pretty good, with a nice bit of variance.

    I’ll buy just about anything from Peter F. Hamilton, his Commonwealth saga is a must read IMHO, or Dan Simmons, his Hyperion Cantos, specifically the first two books is another must read.

    I’ve subscribed to a couple of e-mail lists that tell me what’s free on Amazon each day, and I “buy” anything that looks remotely interesting. As such, I’ve got 25K odd books in my Calibre library, so I’ll have to read about a 1,000 a year to get though them all before I die.

    Not.

    Gonna.

    Happen.

      I’m not familiar with any of the authors you’ve mentioned. I’ll put them on my list to review. Thanks for the suggestions.

        For Lindsay Buroker, I’d start with her Death Before Dragons series. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B084ZQB582?binding=kindle_edition&ref=dbs_dp_rwt_sb_pc_tukn

        For MR Forbes, I’d start with the Chaos of the Covenant series.

        However, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Find Hyperion and the Fall of Hyperion and read them now.

        The amazing thing about the first book, is that it is essentially an update to Chaucer’s Canterbury tales. In the sense that there are pilgrims on a journey and each tells their story as they progress in their travels.

        When I first read it, my reaction to each “story” was “holy excrement! that was fantastic!”, then the next story topped it, and the next, and the next, until finally the last story was told, and it topped them all, even though it took only one or two pages to tell it (I read these in paperback, back in the day).

        Supposedly, they’re trying to make a movie out of this, but in all honesty, The lord of the Rings and Dune, are easy peasy adaptations to this story, IMHO

        The last two books in the series are good, but no where near how epic the first two.

        A close second on the epic scale, is the Commonwealth Saga.

    Forgot to add about Hyperion.

    John Keats, yeah the poet, is a major character.

    Gotta tip your cap for the audacity of pulling that one, especially since he authored an epic poem entitled Hyperion.

    Yes, foreshadowing ensues.
