Silent Invasion: Chapter 1: Monstrous Beginnings
Layla stepped out onto her front porch listening to the birds chirping in the woods next to her Elliot Lake home. She had just moved here from the city to escape the rat race and the daily grind of city life. Elliot Lake was a beautiful little town surrounded by woodlands and lakes of varying sizes. The town was small with mostly retired people and a good number of younger families.
Shreveport was balmy and wet in the Spring time, it always soaked you to the bone when it was like this. Len grunted at the red light as he waited impatiently in his Jeep for it to turn to green. Market street was always busy at five pm with the rush hour craziness of people on a war path to get home.
Let’s talk about Silent Invasion. Yesterday you saw the very first installment of the serial chapter novel. Some of you might have even seen the serial before (possibly, maybe not but you never know).
The Prologue starts you, the reader off with Gus. Good old Gus. An old fella with a wife whose in the beginning stages of dementia and a very badly neglected barn the city has been after him for.
So you have the rule, you have the words, let’s talk biological psychology for both men and women. It’s different for men and women but it does have cross over for both genders. There is a general psychological “normal” associated with both male and female readers. Then you have the general psychology of transgender, gay, lesbian but let’s start with your generic male and female because that’s the biggest niche of the market for erotica writing (it shouldn’t be but it is, although gay and lesbian erotica is on the rise, so is trans erotica and about damn time it is).
New to writing erotica? Don’t know where to start? Think “love pole” is too frilly for you? Not quite the type to use “lick, suck and fuck” in your erotica as a descriptor (although those activities are quite fun aren’t they).
There are two categories of words you can pull from, the soft core and the hard core words. Depending on your comfort levels of course, personally.
