Ages ago, I came across Rich Larson’s wonderful Haunted House of Lingerie. I loved the art but I also just loved that name. It evoked images all of its own. A few years later when I wanted to do a grand Halloween story, I tried a dozen names that just didn’t work. At some point, I thought that none of the names were as good as the haunted house of bondage I wanted to write about.

Once I had a title, then I had to have a story. I was working for Ruthie’s Club at the time and they have a policy of adding an illustration for every story part. That forced me to constantly think of visuals for my story and for Haunted House, it actually helped form the story. I sat down and made a list of everything I personally wanted to see. Then I made a second list of everything I like about the haunted house genre. Then I made a third list of plot elements to connect the two lists. The end result is a nice story that is equal parts porn and ghost story.

By the way, that process is the same thing I did for BDSM Beach and almost any long story these days. Try it with your favorite genre.

Two last things I want to discuss. One is that this is one of those rare stories where I do a submissive male and a dominant female plot. Not being a submissive male, I often draw upon horror and suspense for my inspiration. I like doing these scenes but I often get worried that because I lack any personal sexual interest that I might not do as good a job as I would like. I also find that my readership drops every time I stretch my writing muscles and do a submissive male story.

Second, my personal favorite bit about this whole series was the idea of having room names instead of chapters. It confuses the fuck out of some readers who stumble upon a later story part first, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. It tickles me far more than it should.
