Reader Feedback

The first erotic fiction I ever posted was on Literotica back in 2003. Much of it was because I read some stuff that was really ordinary and thought I could do better. I must say that in many cases, I did. One of the mistakes that I made early on though was to write quickly, give it a one over and publish. There was little thought to editing. This, combined with the lack of re-submission friendliness of the Literotica website meant that spelling errors, name errors and other things that made it through my own writing process remain there to this day.

Of course for some people, they are only now discovering these stories for the first time now. Its great that they get to do so and unfortunate that I haven't been able to go back and re-edit and re-post (though I've done that in turning some of my stories into e-books). 

Sometimes that means that even though something is over 10 years old, people still leave feedback that if they'd checked when it was posted, they might simply not have bothered to leave. Typically they're not the first ever person to have found one of my typos or spelling errors!

I've had some feedback recently that just made me shake my head, but then I thought why not share it and the responses that I haven't bothered sending (because most of the time these people leave this stuff anonymously:

--------

Too long for me !! Became boring ..

Too long !! Short and to the point,please... 😌😴
--------

Well what can I say? I didn't realise that I was writing for someone who's attention span is likely about the same size as their under-sized manhood. I'll be sure not to take this into account for my future writing.

Thanks for your highly literate and useful feedback. I will indeed 'write better shit' just for you. Or perhaps I'll write extremely crap shit and force you to read it

Is it really necessary to keep saying over and over again man, fuck in every other instance when there's sex involved ??? What are you 16 !!! Grow up

Thanks for your valuable feedback. I clearly lack the skills to maintain your interest and will attach a thesaurus to my head for future writing endeavours. I would also like to thank you for the link to your highly articulate and clearly better class of writing ... oh wait, there wasn't one.


Anyway, sometimes I get genuinely nice feedback, and I thank everyone that does actually provide me with their love and appreciation. I mostly laugh off the crap like I've copied above, but sometimes, just occasionally I wonder what their problem is. I suspect the list is long.

Bikini Car Wash Published!

Yes, I found some unexpected time and managed to get this latest story published! Go and treat yourself with a copy today!


So far its only available at Smashwords, but I'm sure it won't be long until it makes its way through to other retailers.

licks and kisses,

Yes, I am actually still writing!

The title says it all really. As much as I've neglected this little part of my web presence, I have actually been doing some writing lately. There's two things that are in the works in a meaningful way at the moment. The first is close to getting published: Bikini Car Wash. Its a 'quikki' about a group of girls doing more than most in their efforts to fundraise for their new athletics uniforms.

The seconed is a Nikki Dark book likely to be called Letters to Beth. I won't say much more about it at this point other than that it will trace a girl's path to depravity and all kinds of dirty fun. I plan on it being a longer work, but that will depend on just how it goes.

The Darkroom Cometh ...

So, if you're interested in what the vote spat out for the cover image (and haven't seen it on Facebook), heres where its at:

So, I think that makes it pretty clear what the preferred basis for the cover was. I've been using that and kept it fairly simple (due to limited funds and photoshop skills). Here's what it is looking like:



I'm planning to release The Darkroom just before Christmas, so keep your eyes peeled!

In other news, I did start something new. A quick little ditty called Bikini Car Wash. Something to look forward to.

The Dark Room

There have been times when I thought that this piece of work would never quite make it to the point of being published. It still isn't quite there yet, but its getting much closer. I'm at a point where I'm looking for editing/beta reading, so if you're interested in helping me out, send me a message at nikkirotica@hotmail.com.

The challenge that comes after that is the cover. I have an idea of what I'd like to to be, but I've not been able to find a suitable image that I can afford and use.

Ideally, for me, the image would be of a sexy young woman hanging photos to dry in a dark room, or a silhoutte of a girl in school uniform walking away with a camera dangling from her hand. I haven't found images to suit either of those ideas. I found this one, but it doen't do what I want. Its not a silhoutte, not a unform and not dark enough.



What I have found is the following set of images, which I think I could turn at least one of into a reasonable cover. The challenge for me is whether the image sells the book and matches the story.  To me it needs to be sexy (its erotica after all) and it needs to connect to the fact that the story's premise really centres around the darkroom itself. 

What do you think? Which image do you think would make the best cover? You can vote for your top 3 HERE.

Image 1: I like the sex factor, would likely have to do something about the background, could work well once title blocks etc are in place

Image 2: I like the lip bite, it speaks to the book as does her youth. Not quite convinced though.
Image 3: Love the sexiness of her pout and hair. Not sure it says darkroom, but a contender

Image 4: Love the pose and the model, not so sure about the dress (and the background would have to be fixed somehow

Image 5: Same dress issue, love the spread legs and pose. Could work? If it was in a school uniform ...

Image 6: Love the black and white, like the fact that she's half undressed on a bed, not sure that it says Darkroom

Image 7: Love the bum and the camera, would likely have to work on the background. A contender
Image 8: If she was wearing a school uniform ... but I don't think so with this one.

So there, that's my thoughts and the images to choose from. Let me know what you think. You can choose 3 when you click to GO TO THE POLL

Help me with The Darkroom

Hopefully with my seemingly ever decreasing attention to this blog (life has been busy, I swear) some of you are still following along to see what sporadic bits and pieces I post.

Having said that, I have reached the point with the darkroom where the girls are approaching their final lesson in the dark room. They want it to be epic. They want to finish school with a bang and leave with something that they'll never forget from their last opportunity in the dark.

I'm opening up for suggestions. What can the girls do? What can go on in the dark room that they'll never forget? How will they immortalise their memories?

Comment on the post, contact me on facebook, or drop me an email at nikkirotica@hotmail.com

I look forward to any and all suggestions. I might even use some of them

licks and kisses,

nikki

Word Counts

Yeah, its been way too long since I posted anything here. Life has been interesting, frustrating, busy and all kinds of other things lately. The result has been less of a focus on my writing and more of a focus on putting food on my table. Hopefully there's some light at the end of teh tunnel soon. Never the less, I have managed to do some writing. 

When I look back at what I was couting previously, I note that:
I finally published Sarissa's Sexual Adventures in Sorcery School.
The second Gymnast story was published, 
Sleepwalker 7 was published. 

Nikkirotica 3 has 3 solid stories to it now that I am just trying to have edited. Unfortunately the editor I'd lined up has issues in his own life that has put that on hold. So it's written, it just needs a bit more work and polish before I put it out there for everyone.

And then there's the dark room, the story that I am probably asked to finish more than any other. I am happy to advise that I have made progress. At last report there were 55,000 words, This is now standing at 62,000 words, an extra 7,000!

Anyway, that was all for now, I hope that you're all doing well and staying happy!

licks and kisses,

nikki
