Demons

The third book in the bully cuckold series, Devil In The Waters, is now available!

On the Patreon page the series is about to enter into the fifth book, and things are getting heated!

Josh’s wife works for his bully now, providing him with her top notch legal expertise. The guy doesn’t deserve her skills.

On the brighter side, Devlin Stone isn’t in her office everyday. He’s a busy man. And he pays Kimmy very well. So well, maybe Josh and Kimmy will find themselves in an excellent situation to make a family in their own home in just a few years . . . 

Both Josh and Kimmy have demons in their past that want to rise from the ashes and find fuel to make their flames roar again. A long time ago, Devlin Stone had an effect on both of them, and now the awful man is insinuating his way into their lives once more, inch by inch . . .

  1. Review submitted on Amazon. Y’all may not like the way I handled the review, but it was honest. And, KT, I meant what I wrote in it. Write what you feel.

    1. I actually love that review! Thank you for putting those thoughts into words—I love that the book is difficult for some, and I hope you can stick with it.

      1. I’m flipping and flopping, KT. You know a bit of the DnD history, so you know where my thoughts about this book are coming from. Thank God I was never bullied as a kid. Also, thank God my wife never pulled the shit Kimmy is pulling.

        Yesterday, I was all up for reading whatever you wrote in this series. I still am, kind of. Just do me a favor and write exactly what you feel you should write. Writing what you feel is paramount. It’s your honesty. Be who you are. Follow your inner voice–that’s your muse talking to you.

      2. I’ve flipped again. Oh, well. I guess I should be used to it.

        And, you’re welcome, KT.

      1. Thanks, Libertyne! And you always catch my underlying themes, ha ha. Kimmy is a female Don Draper (Mad Men). Don Draper was the hero of the show!

  2. This series has inspired me to try to write again. Here goes, third time’s the charm :P.

  3. One of my many problems is that I keep flitting between multiple ideas – one day I might feel one story is my best shot at completing something, the next I might feel way more inspired to do something totally different. Maybe I should focus on the simplest, shortest I can think of for a first time story of modest scope. But they say write the stories you want to read, and I love the longer NTR stories of the kind you (and a few others) write. It’s been interesting to me to go look back on your writing arc, the differences in your earlier published stories compared to the newer ones, I wonder if there were changes in interest or gradual shifts of ambition.

    Had an idea for a quarantine roommate thing – but maybe that’s silly or trite.

    Had another concept set in college, including some stuff that happens during a party. Thing is, I don’t want the influence of alcohol to be perceived as even a small factor in the female lead’s actions (for various reasons that I think you’d understand), but at the same time contextually I think it would feel weird for drinking not to be involved at all. I notice in your stories it’s almost always noted that the wife or girlfriend didn’t drink whenever there’s some sort of party, but also the parties tend to be of a kind where that decision wouldn’t be obtrusive.

    Other ideas too – keep changing my mind ugh.

    I also keep worrying about plausibility – like a storyline involving characters working a profession that I’ve never worked, or involved in activities I’ve never taken part in, etc. Then I just get in mental circles that ultimately just conclude with me feeling discouraged.

    ALSO sometimes I worry I might be TOO influenced by stories in the genre that I enjoy, like any concept I come up with feels like an unoriginal knockoff to me in some way or another.

    Maybe I should push through and just write a quick garbage story just to show myself I can do it…

    1. Glaucon,
      First, your comments often have an edge to them, and this would give your fiction a bit of grit that could be fun, if not quite HEA endings. Second, unfamiliarity with underlying or background material has never deterred KT. She researches the mining equipment, airplane configurations, motorcycle brands, local geography, etc., to create a plausible and enjoyable backdrop.

      You’ll never know until you complete one.

    2. I support your idea, Glaucon, the Quarantine Roommate idea is original if you ask me. I have such a soft spot for Roommate scenarios for some reason.

    3. Hey @Glaucon – I had some quarantine ideas.

      I’ve heard that some Americans who were traveling overseas are now stuck in foreign countries because those countries closed their borders. Imagine someone is traveling on business and is now stuck far away, with only Zoom/email/texts to stay in touch.

      Maybe it’s the wife and she’s now stuck in some exotic, romantic locale with that roguish colleague she’s always flirting with. They’re in a hotel so it seems completely disconnected from their day-to-day home lives, leading them to act on things they wouldn’t have otherwise. They’re respectful at first but, as anxiety and isolation take hold they seek comfort in one another.

      Alternatively, maybe the husband is stuck in someplace boring (sorry Frankfurt) while the wife is home. She’s a hospital administrator or pharmacist (stressful and lots of work, but not as dark as a doctor or nurse).

      I’m not a writer, so anyone who likes this stuff should feel free to run with it.

    4. One of my main problems is flitting from idea to idea, too. It can be maddening to the point of debilitation, for sure. I fight it all the time and sometimes lose. It might be a good idea to just write some shorts to warm up. Shorts can later be longs if you want them to be!

      And as far as inebriation goes: yes, you want to steer way clear of that on Amazon. You can put it on Smashwords, but don’t put it on Amazon. Thats just from a business aspect, of course, there are other implications.

      As far as plausibility goes: human nature is pretty universal regardless of class, culture, etc. At heart we all have the same fears, ambitions, yada yada yada. Whether you’re a firefighter or a banker or a stay at home mom there will be desires, interpersonal dramas etc that can map the same over any individual’s ecosystem. I don’t write characters that work in my field. Just make them human! Weak and fear being weak, wanting to be strong, glad to be tested and survive, etc. You’re a lawyer, but you can make your characters architects, easy. And if you can do that you can make them longshoremen too ha ha. Just takes research and grift.

      Unoriginality: there are no original stories in my opinion. The originality comes from personal style and from the characters you create. Once the characters are formed in your head and you push and pull them through a journey, if you stay true to the characters you created, they will bend the story and their flexibility or rigidity will change the story you think is unoriginal into something completely original. These stories are about wives cheating, or husbands who like to watch. If that’s the subject matter, there is only so much room for something different. The point of the stories is all the same! Just make original characters and the rest will fall into place.

  4. Dammit – tried replying to this but ended up a new thread below. This site is so finicky.

  5. Thank you for the thoughts – I think I’m going to keep trying to push through. Another concern I have is tone – I keep wobbling between the radical emotional realism of your stories and the more lurid exaggerated detail of some other books out there (I admit to often being unduly influenced by whatever story or style I read last) – maybe I should just try putting pen to paper and see what sort of voice comes out. I’m gonna try to follow your advice and attempt a short or two!

      1. Mixed bag. I sketched out a general plotline for something short and started writing an intro but haven’t got too far into it.

        I think my perfectionism’s my own worst enemy – I keep second-guessing every tiny choice. Hard to avoid comparing myself to the strengths of better writers and just feeling like the exercise is pointless.

        Thank you for checking in, though. I find it oddly motivating haha.

      2. The keys to avoiding perfectionism:

        1. Use a pen name
        2. Don’t tell anyone you wrote it
        3. Keep it short and finish it
        4. Don’t re-write anything

        Then repeat.

        You’ll get feedback, and you should listen to it. Everything you write should be better than the last thing in some way. Commit to improvement—the only thing you can improve is something that’s complete!

        There’s a writer (who I’m otherwise unfamiliar with—I don’t read his books, they’re not my cup of tea—but his advice is incredibly good) Dean Wesley Smith. He has tons of writing info on his website and he’s a classic get-it-done pulp writer with deep insight. Check out his blog for pep talks and motivation. Although he doesn’t write romance or erotica (as far as I’m aware), the principles he espouses are valuable.

        This is a particularly great article he wrote: https://www.deanwesleysmith.com/pulp-speed-post-brought-back/

        Now this is just about speed, but he does touch on some of the other things I talk about. Tranche writing in your head: divide storytelling from the concept of ‘literary,’ and you may be able to move forward freed of the drudgery brought by readers’ assessment of your work. Worrying how others will read our work and appreciate it is the enemy of completion, so come up with a route around it!
