Rock Stars. Who Knew?

by Jet Mykles

When I started this writing gig back in 2005, I wouldn’t have thought I’d be writing rock stars. No, I was — still am — a fantasy/paranormal girl. That’s what I like to read and my first series at Loose Id is high fantasy (Dark Elves). That’s what’s always intrigued me.

So, why rock stars? Well, have you seen Johnnie and Luc? Yeah, I was a goner. Many of my younger years were dedicated to a serious Duran Duran obsession and I think the love of a fan comes through in that series, although my band bears only a little resemblance to the fantasies of my youth. I mean, really. I’ve heard of bands that get along but my guys are just too good to each other. And to have them all turn gay when they didn’t start off that way? So actually I was still writing fantasy.

Seriously though, I had just started writing m/m and only had one that was published at the time (the original Snagged). I’d had enough discussions with one of my mentors and she convinced me that I could do this gay thing. So I had two ideas for my next story, one was about a technical support guy and another was about a hotel manager and a rock star. Loose Id chose the rock star. Johnnie Heaven was born. And isn’t he larger than life? The hair was the first thing that solidified, then the eyes. There was no doubt he was the lead singer. He kind of had to be. But Tyler cinched it for me. Coming up with my clueless hotel manager was a pleasure. He jumped off the page, seemingly unassuming, but he stole my heart as quickly as he stole Johnnie’s.

The story, as I remember it, was a pleasure to write. Perhaps I’m forgetting some pain, but it was years ago so I can be forgiven. I know there are at least two scenes in the book that were originally written for other stories. I will admit to being hugely into yaoi at the time so that was a heavy influence. It was a hit with my critique partners and with my beta readers.

Then came Luc. He started taking over while I was still writing Heaven, to be honest. Which is probably why he serves as Johnnie’s competition for a while. Luc is everything that made my younger heart race, down to the instrument he plays. Johnnie was the lure but Luc was it for me. I so wanted to be Reese!

That’s not to say that I don’t love Brent, Hell and Darien. I do (although, Brent and Hell gave me fits writing that book so I wasn’t so happy with them at the time). I also love the guys in the Indigo Knights. But I have to admit that Heaven Sent is all about Johnnie and Luc for me, even now.

So, to all you Heaven Sent fans out there, thanks so much for following me and the boys through their journey. And, by the way, the technical support guy story? I did write it. It’s called Tech Support.

About Indigo Knights 4: Noble

Donny “Foxy” Foxley is hot. Noble knows it. All those screaming teen girls know it. And so does the production company with their millions staked on the teen idol’s dreamy good looks.

So when the supposedly straight movie star comes onto him, Noble is floored. Never one to ignore the allure of a pretty young man, Noble can’t resist and doesn’t even try. Why should he? Even if it has to be a secret, he’d be crazy to pass up a night of sexytimes with the one man everyone wants.

But one night turns into two, then blossoms into a friendship with the potential for so much more. If that’s what Noble was after, which he’s not. But Foxy gets under Noble’s skin until he cares way too much. Because there can never be anything but sex between them. To the world, Foxy is straight and Noble is anything but.

Available at: Loose Id and Amazon

  19. Pamela

    Heaven was the first book I read by Jet Mykles and I was instantly hooked! I immediately bought everything she had written up to then and I now eagerly await each new book by her. None of the books have failed to delight me whether they are about rock stars, elves, shapeshifters and more. Whenever I meet someone I know will be open to the genre I sing her praises. I have even persuaded my Mom to read her books. She loves them too.

    Jet, thank you for many pleasurable hours of reading and rereading.

  20. I have a confession: you weren’t my first M/M romance writer. My first was The Peter & Charlie Trilogy by Gordon Merrick, way, way back in high school in the 19-*cough-sputter*-0’s. They were my first positive gay role models, men who loved each other rather than just got off on each other, who were committed to each other. They fostered my love for the genre that now includes writers like Cardeno C, LA Witt, Aleksandr Voinov, SE Jakes, yourself, and many, many others. As you can see from the names, my tastes are wildly eclectic. You fit right in there with everyone because I love dark elves and rockers too, and when a writer loves her – or his – heroes, it shows in every page. Thank you.
