The Intruder

The Intruder

The Intruder, by H. K. Kiting

Buy now from Amazon

It’s late on a Friday night, and Nick is breaking into Mike’s house. It’s okay though, it’s all part of some role-play fun between two lovers. 

When Mike “the cop” catches Nick “the intruder” in the act, he takes the law into his own hands and restrains Nick on the bed. Silenced, blindfolded and helpless, Nick has no choice but to accept whatever punishment Mike sees fit to dole out.

Just how far will Mike take their scene? And will Nick get a chance to turn tables? 

Find out in this adult tale of gay sex, peril play, role-playing, breath control and bondage.

Episode 2: Is It Done Yet? How Much Longer?

Writing and Publishing Erotica Podcast Episode 2

 

Join erotica authors Dean Chills and H. K. Kiting for a look at writing and self-publishing issues. They are known for their erotica stories, but much of what they say goes with non-erotica writing as well. Each week, they’ll explore a topic related to creative writing, the business of publishing, or just something interesting.

 

Episode 2: Is it done yet? When to finish a story

  • When is it done… Perfection?
  • Do you write for length of story or for publication?
  • How long does a story need to be? Pricing?
  • Time span of process
  • Editing and proofing.., how much is enough?
  • Do you find mistakes six months later?
  • Would you change anything if you could?
