I’m getting excited about Man Whore’s upcoming release. Before I get into the point of today’s post, I will say nothing will stop that enthusiasm. I’m very proud of this story, and I’m thrilled with the direction of the series as a whole.
I threw that disclaimer out there because while I’m uber excited for Man Whore’s release, a small part of me is a bit worried about how it will be received. You see, I’m curious about the twins.
Yes, I did say twins.
So at this point, I have some readers perking up and others cringing and peeking through covered eyes.
The excerpt I’ll be sharing (as soon as I receive the ARC) is the first chapter. It includes Morgan (the man whore himself) and his friends, twin adult males.
Amazon.com recently pulled any and all incest from their site. This included adult, consensual erotica stories. Man Whore’s excerpt ends before anything happens between Morgan and the twins, and the twins, being side characters, don’t get busy in this story. This is, however, the first book in a series, and eventually The Twins will have a shot at a lead spot.
While I know, and I will admit up front, that there is no twincest in Man Whore, I can’t help but wonder if the hint of twincest will turn off some readers. I also worry that Amazon will block this book from their site simply because of the implication of twincest. I expect not. Not because I have faith in that company — I don’t — but because incest is the sexual union, and that does not occur within the pages of Man Whore.
Now that that’s been said, there are no promises that there won’t be scenes where the twins get a little more friendly. In book two, I’ve already caught them kissing on screen.
So will knowing that turn people off from the first story? Will having the excerpt, with an allusion of twincest, keep readers from downloading Man Whore? Will the twincest fans clamor for a story after being teased by the excerpt?
I don’t have those answers. I can only make a choice based on what I think is best. Yes, part of the purpose of this blog entry is to warn the squeamish that there is discussion of menage involving twins, twins that are very close, but also to let the squeamish know that there won’t be anything more than that. Not in the first story anyway.
As for the twins themselves and what may happen when they take the spotlight, the twins are close. They always have been. As for being labeled taboo, or being kicked off Amazon, there’s nothing I am willing to do about that. Rules change constantly. Man Whore doesn’t have incest in it, but given Amazon’s flights of fancy, it wouldn’t surprise me if they killed it anyway. I can’t write around the fears of a small handful of the population that complains to that website, and I want to write the stories of these boys, so I’ve found a compromise that I hope helps more than hinders — I’m stating it right up front. This book does contain twins that are very close, but they keep their clothes on (on-screen) for every page of Man Whore.
Beware, The Twins. They know things.
