Jacob Palmer

Biography

Jacob Palmer is an erotica writer living in Exeter, England. Having self-published two non-erotica novels, Jacob is now a full time erotica writer with several stories planned for release over the course of the year. He is also planning several novellas and novelettes which will be released via Smashwords.

Far from being a genre writer, Jacob writes in a wide variety of styles with an even wider range of themes and characters. The main interest in his writing is the psychological elements of desire and lust which consume his characters.

'Where There's A Whip, There's A Way' is the first release from Jacob on Smashwords as an indie writer.

When not writing, Jacob enjoys coffee, whiskey and wine, his classic rock covers band, the city of Paris, Humphrey Bogart films and Huddersfield Town Football Club.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Wales and England and moved around a lot. I wouldn't call it an unsettled upbringing, but I have never considered anywhere home. I guess this added to my love of Beat literature, especially 'On The Road' by Jack Kerouac. I understood the restlessness of being in one place when there is a whole world out there to discover. I read through the complete works of Kerouac and devoured William S Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg. This progressed onto Hunter S. Thompson and eventually my kindred spirit - Charles Bukowski. My writing has often been likened to his, which comes with good points as well as bad. While trying to establish myself as a writer on my own merits, I can't help but be flattered by the likening to Buk.

I wouldn't say I am a genre reader especially. However, detective fiction is probably the closets I have come to being a fan of any genre. Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and James M Cain being three authors I have admired and respected.

As far as the erotica genre goes I am a bit fan of the Marquis De Sade, Leopold Ritter von Sacher-Masoch, Anais Nin and the classic erotica writers. Of today's markets I love the writings of Vanessa De Sade, Sidda Lee Rain and Lexie Bay. I am a serial erotica reader, I will read anything and everything.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I think the decision whether to become an indie or publisher author is a very complex issue. There are so many key factors to to consider and at the end of the day I believe it is all down to choice and preference rather one being better than the other. Things like promotion, how much profit you want to make, control, they are all factors that are dictated only by personal preference.

For me, I have decided to be indie as I tend to work quite quickly and am good at, as well as enjoy, being self-regulating. 'If you want something doing, do it yourself', that has become my motto, unfortunately, due to having relied on people and been let down on numerous occasions. I find it a lot easier to control all aspects of my work.
