On a Porno-Literary Tip

I used to love that expression, but as I move forward—and mature—I like it less. I’m not even sure I understand what it means. I get the impulse behind it. If you’ve read my books they aren’t your typical smut. The Book of Real and Imaginary Girlfriends has moments of real feeling and depth that more akin to literature than smut. However, there’s no lack of straight porn. Thus I merged the two but it still doesn’t really explain much and it’s a completely useless expression to the Amazon algorithm. If I could get the bots to bite on the expression then we’d have something. I’d be #1 up and down amazon, from A to motherfucking Z. As it is, I’m nowhere but confused by my own oxymoron.

The desire to try and categorize our work is good. I mean how do readers know what the hell they will get from a guy called Moctezuma Johnson. “Johnson? Give me a break, what a fake name!” But it’s real. Well, real in the sense of used for many years. Why? Because my original last name, which happens to be dirtier—it means “Holy Water” in Italian (I’m Mexican-Italian-American for those paisanos who care) which has a secondary meaning of jizz–is very hard to pronounce for some Americans and my dad got sick of repeating the gorgeous name to these lazy-tongued euphony-butchers and would just say, “it’s johnson, damnit, johnson” and it stuck. I’d imagine there are a cumload of Americans with fake last names due to similar tales of ineptitude and frustration. I like it because my father went on to legally change his name and got a powerful government job. I wonder how much of his success was sparked by the name change. Anyway, Johnson or not people hardly know what they’re getting when they see an author’s name so a category can be quite helpful. I remember the jacket of a Tom Robbins book saying, “trying to describe a Robbins book is like looking at a snowflake and trying to explain Olympic slalom skiing.” I think that holds true for all fiction. Now with Amazon trying to treat the book world like the non-greasy pain relieving gel world, authors seem to have no choice but pledge allegiance to a category or two and hope for the best. My advice is choose a category that exists. Don’t go my route and dominate a category that doesn’t really exist.

Rape Fantasy & Incest, Tristan’s Secret Life is Pretty Fucking Hot! | Book Review | This definitely gets two dicks up!

First off, a disclaimer

I’m incredibly attracted to Connie’s brain. I would put my penis into her axon, lube it up with serotonin if I could. I would pump her neurons and splooge norepinephrine. So prepare for me to gush about this book, especially since I was rock hard while reading it and kept that hard on all day long (for over 10 hours). Somebody should bottle up the hormones her books send out and put them in a capsule to destroy cialis and viagra. Anyways, I digress.

Tristan’s Secret Life – Book Two: Natalie has a different start than Connie’s other books. This one is like a CSI episode in the beginning, just as densely layered and well-told, and then falls off the (Connie) Cliff into the raging river of rape fantasy and fucking your sibling. That’s why I read Connie, cause she has the knack to keep dicks hard and pussies wet the entire time I’m reading while never making my brain work too hard. Her writing is lightning-fast and effortless. Her books are a pleasure to read. This one is like a crime novel, but with incest and a slew of women dying to me raped, gangbanged, and otherwise manhandled. There is a scene where one of the chicks want to be fucked up the ass by a group of strangers and goes to a strip club to make her fantasy a reality.

Rape Fantasy and Incest How can you go wrong?

Rape Fantasy and Incest
How can you go wrong?

I liked how the main character, Tristan, nearly gets killed and then finds the secret, and very taboo, love of his life roaming around under the hospital sheets so she jerk him off from back to consciousness. I like these Oprah-style triumphs over adversity. On the verge of death, then on the verge of shooting a load into your step-sister’s panting mouth. Before I got to enjoy the full power of Tristan and his step-sister Posey fucking each others’ taboos out, I realized that Tristan (the billionaire main character) had nasty plans for lesbian-whore-love. He appears to be in a grudge-holding, love-hate obsession with Posey. Yum. What he will do to punish the bitch appears to be coming in the next episode. Boo.

The key point I’d like to express is that these characters are majorly damaged. In other words, these characters keep my dick awake at night!

How-to Write Erotica – The Light, a key element | Writing Tip |

How to Write Erotica

Have you ever watched the Ken Burns jazz documentary? In it, Wynton Marsalis talks about how some musicians have “the light.” When they play you play. It’s like the art is ensconced in fun and joy. That, according to him, is the secret quality of success. I don’t want to write great literature with erotica. I just want to bump into the light every once in a while. When I read two books by Connie Cliff I felt like she had the light shining through the shades into a dark room. Maybe that’s why I like them so completely. See my two dicks up review here 

What can an erotica author learn from 1920s jazz?

Everything. This is one of the great American art forms. It captures the soul of America. Listen to the clip below and hear how Louis Armstrong just keeps riffing on the same themes but slightly changing them. He’s enjoying himself. Thus, I’m enjoying myself listening. The great stories that I’ve read this month all do that. Bella Swann, Michael Dalton, Christina Harding, Connie Cliff, Emme Hor all have a little fun with you while they are writing. That means you will have a little fun. I know there are way more authors that share this joy through their writing, but I’m just noting the few I read in the last couple of weeks.

Check out “the light” coming out of Louis’ trumpet.

 

When figuring out how to write, you need to find that part that really turns you on. If you’re writing erotica, it’s probably a fetish, or a kind of lover. Find that element and then play around with it until you express the thing that makes it so hot for you.

Two Dicks Up for Tristan’s Secret Life | Moctezuma Johnson reviews Connie Cliff

Tristan’s Secret Life (Billionaire Taboo Erotica) by Connie Cliff is a very well ttristans-secret-life-review-by-moctezuma-johnsonhought out plot that links Tristan’s home life through a delicious crush on his step-sister that leads him into the world of attack fantasy. The writing is very clear in each section. The book jumps around in time to weave Tristan’s past into his present expertly. I can see why this is ranked as a best-seller in Amazon’s Lesbian Erotica. There are three very hot sex scenes, all with some taboos surrounding them. One sex scene is a girl on girl scene that seems to be an ultra-popular topic with many readers.

Personally, I would have liked the sex scenes and the dialogue to be a little rougher, but if you’re reading on my site then you already know that that’s my fetish. I want guys calling girls whores and stuffing their throats with cock but that kind of erotic porn isn’t for everyone. I would imagine most readers will find the writing in Tristan’s Secret Life professional and the level of kink to be just about perfect. I give this 4.5 stars (losing the .5 due to lack of roughness, especially in the rape fantasy, and due to a mediocre cover, which I thinexcellent-cover-moctezuma-johnson-reviews-conne-cliffk under-performs the story). I’m including another Connie Cliff cover that I find scrumptious (there’s nothing like a big, juicy booty!)

The story is really solid, filled with sensory detail that will get your motor running. Connie can really write. She excels in telling back-story that enriches the characterizations so that there is a real heat between the characters. When we get to the juicy parts I’m all ready to climax. I recommend this to all erotica readers, regardless of your kink.

 

A short email interview with Connie:

Since reviewing this book I’ve come to correspond with Connie a little bit by email and thought you might like to know a little more about her

You can find her on twitter or amazon.
MJ: Tell me your story.

Connie Cliff: I have a professional type job during the day and need to keep much of my behind the scenes persona incognito. That said, i can probably share my story, in random tidbits, if you don’t mind. I learned how to read when I was two, according to my mother. Since then, the love of reading was firmly established, and on average I read 50-80 books a month. All genres. Faves are thrillers and sci-fi. Erotica when my partner is away. It serves a certain purpose :-).

Meet the ultra-cute Connie Cliff

I never thought I would be a writer. I grew up in a modest low income household and my dream was always to make sure to choose a job that made money. Well, that dream has become true, but, alas, money does not bring happiness. Which is why I decided to start writing. I wrote a couple of textbooks as a post-doc, plus my thesis. That was my writing experience. When I decided to try my hand at this new endeavor, I read Stephen King’s On writing and Haruki Murakami’s What I Talk About When I talk About Running. And then I was off…

 

I believe in the postulate of Write What You Know, but I also love exploring and researching new topics. Although some of the experiences I described in my books so far are based on real life, many are not. For instance, I’m a woman, so I obviously would not know what it’s like to have MM sex. But I try to imagine it and feel it, then research it, then write about it. I’ve only written about it once, and my gay BFF approved.

 

MJ: That’s awesome! The seal of approval from the gay BFF. What else do you need? What else about you, Connie?

 

CC: I speak five languages. And English is actually my third language.

 

I love to travel. My favorite city destination is Buenos Aires. In fact, we now go every year, we love it so much. My fave beach destination is Turks and Caicos. Google Earth Sapodilla Bay Beach. The. Best. Beach. Ever. Trust. My fave non-city non-beach destination is Madagascar. Love me some lemurs.

 

I’m thinking of starting to train for a marathon again. My third. I have to, because my favorite food group is dessert.

 

Ok, I probably bored your readers by now. But hopefully it gives them and idea of what I am as a person and as a writer.

 

MJ: I really doubt you bored any readers. You certainly didn’t bore me. I love meeting the person behind the books. Want to leave our readers with a final thought?

 

CC: “If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” Haruki Murakami. Time to open up your minds, readers. Let’s bring literary erotica mainstream!
