This current project serves as an attempt to publish something. It is a romance/erotic story that deals with a paranormal romance. It isn’t about werewolves or vampires, I’m not interested in those stories. But I have always been fascinated by romances with otherworldly humanoid creatures.
Honestly, I have no idea how it will do when I publish it online. I could fail and have no one interested in it or it could be a success. I have written stories with erotic scenes and this one features more than what I have written in the past. However, the story doesn’t completely revolve around sex.
The male protagonist is our humanoid creature who seduces our female protagonist. It is more about finding a partner and not being lonely, but it is also about realizing that when we chose a partner, we chose all of them and cannot force them to change who they are. I believe that if someone is honest about who they are and what they want then you cannot go into a relationship wanting to change them. You either accept them or move on.
I am, as I write this, at 37 pages. I am close to the climax so I have to go back and add a lot more to the build up. I want readers to enjoy the narrative as well as the sex scenes.
I am choosing to publish this online because I don’t know if it will do as well in traditional publishing and I don’t want to have an agent demand these types of stories from me when I have several other types of stories that have been collecting cobwebs.My goal is to have this novel sitting at roughly 120 pages. I will post more about this as I make more progress in its creation. Be on the lookout for The Monster In the Woods.
