William Cooper has a new book out – Cabin Boys. Firstly let me start by saying this book is brother on brother action which is perfectly fine by me. I’m perfectly happy to read a book with a twincest or a brocest theme and have actually posted a couple of reviews for this type of book on the blog before – check them out if you’re interested!
Even if this isn’t your usual type of book, it’s interesting to read what William has to say about his special niche plus there’s an excerpt to give you a little taste. Enjoy!
The Trick to Successful Erotica
Many authors make their living writing erotica. However, making good money from erotica isn’t as easy as you’d think. You can just throw up a quick 5k vanilla sex scene on Amazon and expect to start rolling in money. Once you’ve learned the ropes though, you can be successful.
The main trick to writing successful erotica is to use kinks and niches to your advantage. Psuedo-incest, BBW, and dubcon are all very popular niches. Same with virgins, barely legal, and BDSM. Your best bet is to pick a niche or kink and stick to it.
For my, my best niche is Brother/Brother books. It’s still a pretty small genre, but there’s a good size market for it. Pseudo-incest and Incest are both popular in the M/F genres, but they’re even more popular in the M/M genre.
Just let men love watching twin women having sex in porn, women enjoy reading about two sexy twin men who don’t mind being intimate together. Some authors achieve this niche by doing M/M/M and having two brothers seduce another non-related male. Others, like myself, cut out the third party and just let the brothers get freaky together.
Some people won’t touch the genre with a ten foot pole, as either a reader or a writer, and that’s fine. There are tons of other kinks just waiting to be tapped into. If you’re looking at making a living from erotica, learn what niches are out there and find one you enjoy writing.
Thanks for hosting me!
Aaron has been in love with his brother for years. Unfortunately for Aaron, those feelings haven’t been mutual. Elliot loves his brother, sure, but he’s not in love with Aaron. After a drunken night up at their parents’ cabin in the woods, could things finally be going Aaron’s way?
Cabin Boys Excerpt
Elliot sent shivers through my body as he ran his tongue along my shaft. Arching my back, hips driving up to give him better access, I wished he’d stop teasing me. God, just suck it already. He opted for mercy and worked his magic by taking my cock into his hot mouth. Heart slamming against my ribs, I thought maybe his mouth might be what heaven feels like—sexual redemption to be found sliding my cock between his full, red lips.
With each rise and fall of Elliot’s head, I got closer to coming. The weight of the impending orgasm, the pressure in my balls drove me insane. I wanted him to take my cum, wanted him to swallow every last drop. Then I wanted to push him down onto the bed and suck his cock dry. I could almost hear his moans as he fisted my hair.
Just as I was about to come, I heard my bedroom door open and it jarred me out of my fantasy. I opened my eyes and yanked my blanket over my lower half as Elliot sauntered in. Even though it was pretty obvious what I’d been doing, I still didn’t need him to see for himself. The heat rising in my cheeks assured me they were bright red as I faced him down. It didn’t help that he was the object of my fantasy.
Elliot stood in the doorway, a slight grin on his face. He wore only a pair of basketball shorts. It was obvious he’d been working out in the basement again. Droplets of sweat slid down his body, moving along the curves of his chest and abs. I loved that the only hair he had on his chest was the little trail leading from his belly button to beneath his shorts. Elliot’s grin solidified my assumption that he knew I was jerking off.
Even though I was twenty-one, I felt like a teenager again. I couldn’t wait until I was out of the house and had my own place. I had hoped for some privacy by now, but Elliot had decided to live with our parents until he finished his MBA. He claimed it was far less expensive than on-campus housing or an apartment.
My gaze roamed over his body, from the contours of his shoulder, down his pecs and abs, to the small trail of hair that lead to the prize inside his shorts. Stop that! I chastised myself. I couldn’t let Elliot notice me ogling him, much less figure out he’d just interrupted a fantasy involving him. He was my brother, after all, and I can’t imagine he’d be pleased with it.
“You got any plans for the weekend?” he asked.
I rolled my eyes. The fucker could’ve at least said hello or apologized for not knocking when he came in. He reinforced my belief that I’d gotten all the manners from our genetic pool, and they’d drifted right past him. Elliot never was one to beat around the bush. “Nope, why?”
He leaned against the doorframe with his arms crossed in front of his chest, still grinning from his embarrassing masturbatory discovery. “I was thinking we could go up to the cabin for the weekend. We haven’t been up there since last summer, and I wanna grab some beers and have some fun before school starts up again.”
“Sounds good. I could use a few days away from the house. We leave in the morning?” Elliot was right. We hadn’t gone up there since about this time last year. We were well overdue for a break away from the rest of the world.
“Yeah, if that works for you. We can stop at the liquor store down the street and stock up like we always do. How’s that sound?”
I nodded. “Yeah, that works for me. What time we leaving?”
“Be ready to go around six,” Elliot said, then winked. “Have fun taking care of that.” He turned and left, closing the door behind him.
Six? Seriously? As far as I was concerned, there were no hours between two am and eight am. No one in their right mind wants to get up that early. But then again, no one ever said Elliot was in his right mind.
So what did I think?
The excerpt, which is actually the beginning of the book, sets the tone for the whole story, as Aaron and his brother Elliot head off for a weekend at their family cabin. Aaron has fantasised about his brother for years and this trip is the weekend where all his fantasies come true. Skinny dipping and too much alcohol lower their inhibitions and Aaron finds himself the lucky recipient of the type of attention he ‘s been craving from his brother. There’s no gradual introduction to the world of gay sex as these guys get stuck straight into it! Lots and lots of brother on brother action in this short story and Aaron can’t believe his luck!
The blurb says that Aaron has been in love with Elliot for years. This may be the case but if so, the story doesn’t really show why – this is all about the physical attraction rather than giving much insight into the characters. There’s an interesting acceptance by Elliot (who is not gay and therefore can’t give Aaron everything he desires “It was a little disappointing, but any sex with Elliot would be worth it.”) and a rather relaxed attitude regarding their activities. This isn’t an angsty, guilt-filled story – this is short and sexy with an unexpected little turn at the end which I’m sure will lead to another story and adventure for Aaron.
