Rent’s due, and Joe’s bank balance hovers perilously close to zero.

Desperate for cash, Joe hustles until he finds not just one man to satisfy, but a room full of hungry, powerful men in our nation’s capital. These men make laws that govern us all, and hide their true desires from everyone – except Joe.

Determined to extract every dollar he can from the corrupt elite, he dances his way into their fantasies, putting on a show that leaves them begging for release.

Joe and a fellow dancer put on a sizzling performance no one in the voyeuristic audience will ever forget. One night on stage doing what we all do in private guarantees he’ll never have problems making rent again.

Autumn Fire is back on the e-bookshelf!

My first novel, Autumn Fire, is getting a snazzy new re-release today over at Deep Desires Press! (For those new to the party, Deep Desires Press is my publishing company for erotica and erotic romance.)

Most authors have that first novel that they really wish hadn’t seen the light of day. Not me. I love my first novel.

When I sat down to revise it (and it needed an overhaul), I fell in love with the characters and the story all over again.

Come along for the ride — I know you’ll love it!

Interview with Nathan Bay, author of Young Forever

Greetings, book lovers! Today I’m thrilled to have Nathan Bay as my guest! Nathan is the author of Young Forever, which is out today, and I’ve got him here for a quick interview!


nathan-bay-banner

Tell us about your latest release.

Young Forever is a gay erotic thriller. It tells the story of Roger Willis, a man who’s newly divorced and just turned forty. Roger is trying to navigate the complicated world of dating in a technology-driven era, where meeting men is so much different than it was two decades ago when he was last single.

That’s when a handsome young man named Ben Hudson comes along and gives Roger new hope for the future. There’s relationship potential, but Roger has secrets. What will happen when Ben opens the door to Roger’s past and the skeletons come tumbling out?

Meanwhile, gay men are mysteriously disappearing. Rumors suggest they’re being murdered, but there’s no evidence to prove it. The gay community is on edge, wondering if a serial killer is lurking in the shadows. Who’s responsible for the crimes and how can they be stopped?

Lies will be told. Hearts will be broken. Fluids will be spilled. It’s going to be a bloodbath.

Sounds exciting!

young-forever-nathan-bayWhat was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

A pivotal death takes place in a morgue. I’d written it in a way that was action packed and dramatic. After I finished the first draft of it, I did some fact-checking with a group of morticians and found out the scene wouldn’t work from a technical perspective. I was feeling disappointed that I couldn’t use the scene, but then the morticians chipped in and started brainstorming. They came up with a unique and grisly way to die, and I don’t think it’s ever been presented this way before.

This time, I wanted to make sure I really understood the setting and details. I did research on YouTube watching instructional embalming videos with bodies being cut open and drained. I wanted to make sure I got everything right. The rewrite of the scene is truly horrific, and I’m proud of how it turned out. The subject matter is intense, and it took me to some dark places on the Internet to find answers, but I think it will pay off and be just as shocking for the reader.

*shudder* I don’t think I could do that kind of research… 🙂

What was your favorite scene to write?

Chapter 6: Teenage Dream. It’s the first sex scene between Roger and Ben, and I love everything about it. Although it comes fairly early in the book, it was one of the last scenes I wrote. I put it off for a long time because I felt the pressure of how special this scene needed to be. Not only was it the first sex scene between the lead characters, but it was also the most graphic sex scene I’d ever written—and I knew it was going to be. Procrastination paid off, because once I finally wrote it, I’d already written most of the other material, and I felt like I understood the dynamics of their personalities.

I wanted to capture that magic of new romance, and that testosterone-driven, lose-your-mind type of intensity when two guys want each other so badly that it feels like they can’t get deep enough. It’s not just penetration; it’s truly trying to connect with the other person’s body in a way so satisfying that their spirits merge.

I think (hope) that I’ve accomplished that. It was one of those scenes I stayed up all night writing because it just hit me all at once. When I finally dragged myself to bed in the morning, I felt like I’d gone on a journey. It’s rewarding to witness something palpable between two lovers using only words and imagination.

I know what that’s like — sometimes a scene just takes full control of your body and mind and you can’t do anything but give into it until it’s finished!

Why did you decide to self-publish?

Thanks to Amazon, I’ve discovered a diverse world of self-published authors who are bursting with creativity. They’re able to take more risks with their work and often delve into storylines that traditional publishers would not touch. As a reader, I love it, and as a writer, I wanted to be part of it.

That’s why I think self-publishing is the best fit for me. I like to explore abstract ideas without restrictions. I also like creative control over everything. I’m responsible for my book, the cover design, the marketing, and anything else attached to my name.

Amazon is helping validate this growing new market of writers and giving us a platform. This is an exciting time.

Do you like music while you write? Or do you prefer total silence?

Music is a contributing source of inspiration to my writing process. The Katy Perry song, “Teenage Dream,” is what the book is named after. These are the lyrics:

Let’s go all the way tonight
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I
We’ll be young forever

My husband was so mad at me when I revealed the title because “Teenage Dream” was a special song for us. (Sorry, honey.) Now he only thinks of death when he hears it, and there are multiple lyrics within the song that can be given a cryptic slant if you think about it in a different light.

Another major contributor was the music video for Lady Gaga’s song, “Paparazzi.” I first got the idea several years ago when I was watching it and thought about all the beautiful young corpses on display in the mansion. I wondered what the story was, and what if it were a book? That’s where I got the idea for Young Forever. Thanks, Gaga.

I’ve put together a playlist of music that relates to the scenes in the book. The songs are arranged in chronological order, so if you want some ambiance while you’re reading, check it out at nathanbayauthor.com/youngforever.

Very cool! I love when the inspiration for a novel is so unique like this!

Well, folks, I hope you enjoyed this meet and greet with Nathan! Now, go over to Amazon and buy the book — it’s out today!

Dancing Men by Adira August

Another day, another hot book! Read on for the blurb, cover, and excerpt of Dancing Men, by Adira August!

We’ve had Adira here on the blog a couple times before — this new book, Dancing Men is a follow-up to Matchstick Men and a sort of follow-up (meaning, same characters/universe) of On His Knees.

Dancing Men comes out on November 1st — but if you preorder now, it’s only 99 cents! On November 1, it’s goes up to $3.99!

Blurb:

Sometimes the past just won’t stay buried.

An ancient burial urn, empty for millennia, is suddenly not so empty.

When Detective Lieutenant Hunter Dane probes the murder at Natural History Museum, it’s his own past that haunts him. To solve the complex case, Hunter needs the talents of Camden Snow, the brilliant, beautiful, “no limits” Dom who’d helped him unravel a very peculiar, and very personal, murder.

But now, Cam’s ready to kill Hunt, himself! Their high-intensity D/s relationship that began in a playroom, ended in an emergency room.

Detective Dane is about to discover that history does, indeed, repeat itself. And his brain and body—humming with suspect information and sensual anticipation—want so much more than a killer behind bars.

For adults who love some mystery with their men. A 60k police procedural with a liberal dose of M/M heat. The 2nd of the Hunter Dane Investigations. Matchstick Men, their 1st case, also available on Amazon.

Excerpt:

5:25pm  penance

Cam pointed to the floor of the van between his legs as soon as Hunter entered through the backdoor.

“I’m on duty,” Hunt said.

“Not in this parking lot,” Cam told him. “Or did you forget?”

“You’re hard,” Cam said. Hunter shot a look out his passenger window. Noon. And the parking lot was busy.

“That’s just physiology,” Hunter said, sounding unconvincingly stern. “I’m working.”

Cam moved a lever and Hunt’s seat went almost completely flat. “You’re at lunch,” Cam told him.  

“I don’t have time.” Hunter’s voice was hoarse. Tight.  

“Five minutes, tops,” Cam said. “It’ll just feel a lot longer.”

Bent over under the low clearance of the van, Hunter licked his lips. His eyes flicked to the console at Cam’s left. He’d positioned his wheelchair behind it at a 90-degree angle, so the items on top were in easy reach.

Lube. A jar of something. Wipes. A heavy leather strap about two inches wide and a foot long. Designed for close work. Designed for pain. Agonizing in the hands of an expert.

Hunter’s eyes widened and went to Cam’s chair. He’d lowered the arms and fastened them back, out of the way, making his lap completely accessible. A deep flush raced up Hunt’s neck and over his face. A pulse pounded in the side of his neck.

Watching Hunter’s struggle between fear and desire, Cam forced himself to ignore the heat that flared low in his belly. He didn’t move or speak. Hunter Dane must make the choice to submit on his own.

But Cam knew he would. What Hunter Dane suffered now was guilt. Over Cam. He needed to suffer for his sins, or his guilt would forever be an obstacle between them.

And Camden Snow brooked no obstacles.

Hunter closed his eyes. “Two-way street,” he whispered and dropped to his knees.

About Adira August:

adira-augustTYPOS ARE MY TRADEMEARK

I write mostly BDSM EROTICA because I love exploring the power dynamics and expanding the limits of what that is for my readers. The work is EXPLICIT but not HARDcore. I write about ALL the elements. I do not make kink lists for my titles.

I went to school interminably, it seemed like. I chased down bad guys, raised children, climbed mountains, played poker, searched for dinosaurs and have had a rather large number of lovers. (I’m not giving up any numbers ‘cause TMI, and ew.)  Through it all, I wrote.

No wonder I’m so tired.

Worth The Fall by CC Strix

Greetings book-lovers! Today we’re featuring Worth The Fall by CC Strix! Read on for the cover, blurb, excerpt, and get to meet CC!


Blurb:

Jace Edwards can’t seem to catch a break, no matter how hard he tries. Deciding to end it all sounded like the perfect solution, until divine intervention put a kink in his plans

Kiran has one last chance to prove himself or kiss his wings goodbye. It sounded easy enough on the surface, until he realized there was more at stake.

The more time they spend together, the more Kiran begins to think life without wings may not be such a bad thing.

WTF Cover.jpg

Excerpt:

After finding food, Kiran and Jace dressed and left the old farmhouse, both dressed nearly identically in faded denim jeans and flannel shirts, boots and hats. The journey was mostly done in silence as both men were lost in thoughts of what was to come. Jace still had no real idea what part he was supposed to play, but he was choosing to trust Kiran, even though he honestly couldn’t tell himself why. Kiran was silent for much of the same reason, though unlike Jace, he was feeling confident he was finally going to beat Amitiel at something. This changed the closer they got to the small pub in the middle of nowhere. It reminded Jace of the ones he used to hustle at, and it made sense to him that this was the type of place where things would go down. The fact it was only a few towns away from where he did his hustling meant he’d likely run into some familiar faces too. This should be fun.

Just outside the pub, Kiran grabbed Jace’s elbow and forced him to stop. Jace spun towards Kiran, blinking in confusion, “What?”

Kiran stepped closer, one hand on Jace’s elbow, the other cupping his chin, “I need to be sure you are ready for this. I do not know exactly what we will be walking into, but I have my suspicions it will not be anything easy.”

Jace stared, dumbstruck, into Kiran’s eyes. He saw the hesitation and worry lingering like a raging storm in the depths of those deep brown eyes. If an angel was this freaked, what the hell chance did he have?

He leaned in and rested his forehead against Kiran’s. “Whatever happens, I’m ready. Obviously, I’m not afraid of dying.”

Jace flashed a teasing grin, much to Kiran’s dismay. Kiran let out a low, feral growl and took Jace’s bottom lip between his teeth, tugging and letting go. “No, you are not, but I will not allow that to happen now.”

Jace shrugged and averted his eyes, unable to face the intensity in which Kiran was staring at him. He mumbled, just under his breath. “Not until I finish the job at least.” Then turned and started back towards the door.

Kiran’s grip on Jace’s elbow tightened, “Not even then, Jace.” He let the subject, and Jace’s elbow, drop there. They had work to do.

About CC Strix:

As a young child, CC would often immerse herself in books, loving the ability to lose herself in the magical worlds. As she grew older, she was no longer content reading about magical worlds and instead started to create her own. The paranormal called out to her and she was helpless to ignore it. Vampires, were creatures, angels, and demons all have stories to tell.

CC believes that love has little to do with what’s in one’s pants and as such, her stories contain couples that fit in all walks of life. She gave up pretending she had control of the voices long ago, it makes them all much happier that way.

When not writing, CC can generally be found cursing the state of Idaho and its numerous attempts to kill her with the pollen bombs, reading her ever-growing to-be-read pile of awesome books, dabbling in graphics or procrastinating in a number of other ways.

Author Interview: Rebecca James, author of Teresias Bound

Hi book lovers! Today we have Rebecca James, author of Teresias Bound, stopping by for a chat!


RJames-72dpi-1500x2000-1Tell us about your latest release.

My latest release, Teresias Bound, is a sci-fi/fantasy and involves a futuristic trans character. It went live on July 29.

What was the hardest or most difficult scene to write?

I think the most difficult scene to write in this book was the scene where Aiden’s female body is transformed to a male body. I’d never want to make little of the struggle trans people go through, but since my book is futuristic, the transition is more complete and fantasy-like. I had a little difficulty envisioning what that might look like at first.

What’s the most difficult part of writing a sex scene?

For me, the most difficult part of writing a sex scene is making each one unique and sexy. Most M/M readers have read hundreds of sex scenes, and it’s not easy writing something that not only doesn’t sound like everything else out there, but also fits the plot and develops a real connection between characters.

Are you writing anything now? Can you tell us about it?

I usually have several projects going, so I can switch off when my muse takes a notion. Right now, I am writing book two of my Angel Hills shifter series and also working on a sci-fi/fantasy that has a sort of mail-order-husband plot.

Can you describe your editing process?

Usually about half-way through a book, I do what I privately call a “comb-over” where I re-read what I’ve written and get a feel for where I’m going and what I need to make sure to conclude. During this process, I edit errors, rearrange sentence structure, etc. When the book’s finished, I go over the second half, and then I have one or two beta-readers look at it mostly for continuity. It then either goes to my publisher’s editor and then back to me, or, if I’m self-publishing, I hire an editor.

Will you be attending GRL in Denver this year?

Yes! I’ll be there as a supporting author, and I’m so excited about it. I’d love to meet my readers, and if you’re a subscriber to my newsletter and going to be there, let me know—I’ll have a special gift for you. You can drop a message at my website: https://rebeccajamesgayromance.wordpress.com/ , facebook: https://www.facebook.com/rebeccajamesgayromance/, tweet me: @rjamesromance1, or email me: rjames201581@yahoo.com. You can also find me at tumblr: http://rebeccajamesbooks.tumblr.com/

Thanks for the chat, Rebecca!

RJames-72dpi-1500x2000-1Now, go and check out Rebecca’s new book, Teresias Bound!

Aiden is a man in a woman’s body. His dream is to fly to Aquarix where the elusive Fluens–the only species capable of changing his life record and physically making him a man–reside, and for years he’s been working at a seedy brothel in Solarias to save enough money to make that dream a reality.

Lydo, the prince of Teresias, has spent his youth leading his father’s army and avoiding his responsibilities on his home planet. On brief leave during a dangerous mission, he stops at a brothel and acquires the services of a feisty young prostitute who insists Lydo refer to her as a boy. Amused by the girl, the prince pays her way to Aquarix.

Aiden is euphoric at his transformation, but Lydo is more than a little disconcerted by the fact he is attracted to Aiden as a man.

When it’s time to part ways, Aiden fulfills his second dream by taking a job on a spaceship. Resigned to step into his expected role on Teresias, the prince returns to his homophobic planet. But as the king parades princesses before his son in hopes of a betrothal, Lydo finds his heart remains with a certain adventurous boy somewhere out in space.
