Author Q&A: Jack L. Pyke + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Huge thanks to Jen and the guys for hosting my fourth day of my seventh-day tour with Shaded Chains. Yesterday I was at Sinfully Gay Book Reviews, looking at if I could write to order from one reader, and tomorrow I’m with Attention is Arbitrary going full kink in kilt, following the Scottish theme in Shaded Chains! So please check me out there too!

Today it’s a quick Q&A session. I asked readers to go as serious or as tongue-in-cheek as they’d like with questions, and, well, they never fail to knock me off my feet and tickle a few ribs….

Are you my Dom, because you sure love torturing me!

I’d need rope, sticky tape, and a whip or two to answer that, that’s after I’ve figured out how to get into the packaging, lol.   

What do you want your tombstone to say?

Run – you’re next.

With everything you put your characters through, what is your biggest fear?

Tornadoes. Every time I dream of tornadoes, something bad happens in my life. So I hate tornadoes, that and water and spiders. So water spiders carried by tornadoes would just about kill me.

Would you ever kill off an MC?

Oh yes. In fact, in Don’t 6…. Just kidding. (I like keeping my head!)

Would Gray ever allow Jack to have a scene where he dominates him – and not as Martin?

In fact, in Don’t 6 — spoilers!

What sparks your creative story lines?

To start off with? Usually just a word, like Don’t…. I see the look in my eldest lad’s eyes when I say don’t around him; there’s always that compulsion to… do!

Which character most resembles you?

I’m gonna blush heavily here and say Jan Richards, from the Don’t… series. He’s an accountant, and falls into dark psychological games with Jack and Gray, not to mention the BDSM and counter-terrorism plot lines etc. He feels just so out of his depth and left hiding or blushing at how normal his life is. Not to mention how he feels like a third wheel at times who’s lost in the background. I’m there most times, wishing I could say I was dark as Gray, as sexy and loveable as Jack Harrison, with his darker personality, but… nah. They’d both probably bypass me on the street, and I’m kind of happy with that! I like normal and bland.

As an author who writes dark reads, what do you want to accomplish with your writing?

In all honesty? Nothing. There’s no hidden message regard my politics to get any type of message out there; I don’t want to use M/M writing to break through into the mainstream market. I’m just happy writing.

Seeing as you write dark books… is there any books you can’t read cos they’re too dark?

My trigger zones are actually non-fiction, in particular reads that deal with real-life accounts of abuse and rape. I can’t read them. My non-fiction shelves consist of English Language/linguistic text books, nothing more.

Lastly, I really would really enjoy you answering the question you addressed. Is there anything you wouldn’t write about? What are YOUR triggers?

I’ll always look at portraying the harder side to life because that’s life in general: it gets no censorship and little allowance for trigger zones. But I do have hard and fast restrictions to the amount of on-page content I’ll consider. I won’t ever write a scene portraying narrative real-time paedophilia, not like I did with getting into Jan’s head when he witnessed the horrendous twist on the rape-to-straight scenes in Antidote. So, yes, the one thing that’s sure to make me stop writing and toss a novel across the room is anything on paedophilia.

About Shaded Chains

Alex Gardner is a psychiatric nurse, Ross McKendrik a tattoo artist: both know the fears and strains of caring for an old man with dementia: Ross’s father. When lines between father and son are crossed and trust is broken between Alex and Ross—between a sub and Dom—Ross is in a fight for his life to earn the right to hear his sub say his name again. Only having grown up in the Scottish Highlands, Ross’s methods are a little… dangerous, his methods are a little… dark. Love is about to get very, very tough.

About Jack L. Pyke

Jack L. Pyke blames her dark writing influences on living close to one of England’s finest forests. Having grown up hearing a history of kidnappings, murders, strange sightings, and sexual exploits her neck of the woods is renowned for, Jack takes that into her writing, having also learned that human coping strategies for intense situations can sometimes make the best of people have disastrously bad moments. Redeeming those flaws is Jack’s drive, and if that drive just happens to lead to sexual tension between two or more guys, Jack’s the first to let nature take its course.

Detour by Sid Love: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Blogger_Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt from Detour

by Sid Love

I stepped out of his embrace and stared at him, he looked so different at that moment. Attractive. Appealing. His calm, green eyes and his skin glowed in the light. His lips were plump, my mouth felt dry.

“Why are you looking at me like th…?”

Before he could finish, I grabbed his face and kissed him hard. I didn’t care about anything in that moment. I only knew I had to kiss him because my attraction for him was overpowering.

He broke away, unnerved. I smiled to show it was okay and he grinned widely. Grabbing my lower lip between his, he licked it. I moaned when he bit it. His hands snaked around my torso and traveled down to find my butt cheeks, squeezing them hard. I gasped into the kiss.

He picked me up like I weighed nothing and dropped me on the bed. Taking the wallet and note from me, he placed them, together with his laptop next to his pillows, safely on the nightstand. Concentrating on me, his eyes roamed my body from top to bottom. “Man, this must be my lucky day!” he declared huskily.

I giggled and watched him crawl over me. Breathlessly, I stopped laughing when he eyed me with a serious face. “What?” I whispered. Continue reading

Fair Catch by Leigh Carman: Excerpt & Giveaway!

Excerpt from Fair Catch

by Leigh Carman

Prologue

Do you believe in love at first sight? No? Thank fuck. Neither do I.

—Sullivan Archer, wide receiver for the LA Wild Cats

Van and Toby meet

Toby

I turn to leave the narrow hall and at the exact same time, the door marked “office” flies open and a handsome man steps out. He’s bigger than me, tall and burly, with auburn hair and a ginger beard. The black T-shirt pulling tight across his impressive chest displays the bar’s provocative logo.

“Excuse me.” I drop my gaze and try to make myself as small as possible as I move to duck around him.

“Wait.” The big man grabs my wrist, and my heart leaps into my throat.

Oh God. He sees my hard-on.

My adrenal gland kicks into high gear, flooding my veins with anxiety and embarrassment. Heart pounding, I spin around and yank out of the man’s hold as I attempt to control the tightness in my chest. The guy holds up his hands to show he isn’t trying to pull any shit with me. “Sorry, buddy. Didn’t mean to startle you. I was just wondering if I could talk to you for a second in the office.” He nods toward the door.

With a huff, I cross my arms over my chest, then uncross them and scratch my head, unsure what to do with my hands. “Why on earth would I go in there with you? I don’t know you.” Plus, I might be athletic and in good shape, but I’m the opposite of huge. This guy has a half a foot and at least forty pounds on me. Continue reading

Honorary Blogger Skylar M. Cates: Dedications + Giveaway!

Honorary_Blogger_Post

Dedications

by Skylar M. Cates

Do you know what irritates me? When my kindle skips over the acknowledgements and dedication pages and always takes me to the first chapter. Maybe I’m a nerd, but I enjoy reading the author’s notes and acknowledgments.

Secrets of You, the fourth book in my Sunshine and Happiness series, has a special dedication. Before I write about it, and I’m a little choked up to do so, I wanted to reflect on some of my previous dedications and what they meant to me.

As I went back to various books and the dedications, each one did have significance. Here are a few that I wanted to share:

Exposed: A first book really is a baby, so who better than Mom to dedicate it to?  A day or so before Exposed was to be on the coming soon page at Dreamspinner, I had a nerve-jangling attack. The book wasn’t ready! It could still be better! I’m taking it back! Mom came to my rescue.

It was my mom who reassured me, cheered me on, and made me take that final leap of faith. She really was my hero that week.

Dedication: And for my mom, my eleventh-hour champion

The Guy from Glamour: Aware of the dedication to my mother in my first novel, my sister said all her friends teased her. Where was she in my acknowledgments? She had to defend our sisterly bond from the doubters.  Although she was joking (sort of), I could tell she wished a book would be dedicated to her too. The Guy from Glamour seemed a perfect choice. The book had sisters, after all, lots of them. Siblings played an important role in the book.

Dedication:  This book is dedicated to Karen, my big sister and my friend

Lovers, Losers, and You:  This wasn’t the first novel that I dedicated to my kids; however, it was the first novel they all took an avid interest in discussing. No, they haven’t read it (yet), but my kids often heard me bemoaning plot and character points with my husband (who nodded in all the correct places), and they began to offer “help”.  In the book, there’s a reality cooking show, and at the time, my daughters loved shows like Cupcake Wars and Master Chef Jr., so I used some of that for inspiration. Each one of my kids wanted to create a judge. I have three kids= three judges. I took notes on the gender, personality and looks. I used what they told me. One day I would love to see them actually read about the judges that they helped their mom create. For now, it makes me smile when I reread those competition scenes.

Dedication: For Ariana, Jared, and Talia—thanks for the judges!

Secrets of You: My original person to thank was my husband. He is the best at giving me time to create. I had the dedication there, ready to go.

Then I changed it.

Editors don’t often get the credit they so richly deserve. They can take an author’s words and improve them. They can talk you off the ledge. They can make you shine. If you’re lucky, as I have been, they are also friends.

At the start of Secrets of You, my head editor Sue was leave, for reasons I didn’t know, but I was assured she was coming back for the second half of the editing process. Sadly, Sue was unable to return. For personal reasons, she had to leave DSP for a longer period.

Although the substitute editor was excellent too, I missed my friend. Only Sue had been with me through the creation of the Sunshine and Happiness series to here. She once joked “I speak Skylar,” and that was for real. She got me.

I decided my hubby could get some other dedication (and had been in other dedications already). Before the final draft went to print, I altered the page.

Dedication: For Sue Adams.

Sue, I miss your expert eye and warm heart. Be well.

There is a second part to my dedication in Secrets of You.

Without readers, writing can be a lonely and frustrating task. On the bad days, it’s enough to make a writer want to stick the manuscript in the closet.

I certainly have felt this way. But then I wonder if somebody is actually waiting and wanting my book? And I push through the doubts.

If you ever are considering sending a writer a small note of appreciation, I’m here to tell you to do it. It matters. A whole lot!

Dedication:

To the loyal readers of this series—you’re the miracle that makes me want to write. You’re the bright sunshine in my day. Thank you!

Writers do not have to leave dedications; it’s optional, but I always do it. How often do we get a chance to thank the important people in our lives? These days, especially, I want to remember to be grateful.

So, guys, next time the kindle jumps to the first chapter, maybe scroll back? Take a look? You never know what dedication is waiting.

Thanks for hosting me today!blogger_bee_trans

About Secrets of You

secretsofyoufs_v1It’s never easy to find redemption.

Carrying scars and regrets, River Darcourt avoids too much intimate contact. Among his friends, he is known as a quiet loner. Forget about love—it’s not something he will consider—until sweet, young, and tempting Morgan Hayes becomes his housemate. River closed his heart long ago, but the attraction is impossible to deny.

Morgan Hayes needs a change. He is moving out of his critical father’s home and in with his friends, including his secret/not-so-secret crush, River. Having feelings for River is a terrible idea. But what is a guy to do when the annoyingly sexy mechanic is just across the hall?

While Morgan has overcome ugliness and is ready for love, he’s just not sure River ever will be. They have both experienced pain in their lives. So Morgan dares River to take a chance, and love will either break their fractured hearts in more pieces or, just possibly, make them whole again.

Follow Me Into Darkness: Exclusive Teaser from Masked by J.R. Gray & Giveaway!

Blogger_Exclusive Excerpt

Five of the top voices in queer romance teamed up last year to give you Follow Me Into Darkness: Five Tales of Carnivale Romance. Their stories were bold, they were decadent, they were achingly sinful. They begged you to remove your masks just once and many of you listened. Their stories looked into the heart of modern day New Orleans and its steamy past, followed an errant queen in disguise, walked through the lush streets of Rio, and then continued straight on into the lofty pages of a Shakespearean soliloquy.

Mardi Gras is coming fast and Follow Me Into Darkness is back to seduce you. It’s on sale for only 99 cents from 2/26 – 3/5 plus the authors are giving you gifts and treats along the way!

For one week only, romance writers Santino Hassell, J.R. Gray, J.C. Lillis, Roan Parrish, and Kris Ripper dare you to take off your masks again…but are you ready for what might happen if you do?

Now, for a brief teaser from J.R. Gray’s story, Masked, from Follow Me Into Darkness:

“It’s a bad idea.” Javier slid the mask down his face, exposing dark brown eyes first. He had a crease in the center of his brow and a crook to his nose. It was the first time Heath’d gotten a good look at Javier’s face, and it was brutal, beat to shit, but he was beautiful, more so than he’d been over a decade ago.

Heath dropped his eyes to the floor and nodded. He was about to turn to leave when Javier grabbed a fist full of his hair. Surprise flashed through Heath a moment before Javier’s mouth met his…

About Follow Me Into Darkness

28577622Carnivale is a time for decadence, for revelry, and for mischief. A time when we shed the figurative masks we wear in everyday life in favor of new ones… ones that allow us to be a little bolder, a little more adventurous, and perhaps a little truer to ourselves. Follow Me Into Darkness is a compilation of original tales of queer romance by five of the premier authors of contemporary romance.

Hurricane by Santino Hassell

Interesting things never happened to Zay. He was the wallflower everyone forgot about as soon as the booze began to flow, and Mardi Gras had never been an exception. But after a chance encounter with a devil-may-care grifter, this year’s celebration brings adventure and whirlwind romance.

 If We Be Friends by J.C. Lillis

Seventeen-year-old Ven should be flying highhe’s playing the title role in a new TV drama about Hamlet’s teen years, and tonight they’re having a Mardi Gras cast party in a possibly-haunted castle. But Ven’s lost all his mirth since his boyfriend suggested they “take a break,” so he plans to skip the bash and brood in his trailer all night. Then the exasperating guy who plays Horatio challenges him to a Shakespearean soliloquy-off, and Ven knows his actorly honor is at stake. He says yes to the duel, trudges off to the the party to meet his fate–and finds that more awaits him onstage than a battle of wits and words. Continue reading

A Face without a Heart by Rick R. Reed: Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway!

Blogger_Exclusive Excerpt

Exclusive Excerpt from A Face without a Heart

by Rick R. Reed

Fog shrouds the streets near Lake Shore Drive. It rolls off the water from the lake, spreading like a virus. It’s a little after midnight on the eve of my thirty-eighth birthday. I suppose, more precisely, it is my thirty-eighth birthday. Spring around the corner. New beginnings. It’s been a new beginning for me now for seventeen years. Or at least to look at my face, that’s what one would think. Funny how the new and novel can grow trite and tiresome after a while.

I have tried, these years of my so-called adulthood, not to feel sorry for myself. How many others would kill to be in the position I find myself… perpetual youth and beauty. Ah, what could you do with that? It sets the brain synapses to firing, the fantasies to spinning. Isn’t it pretty to think so?

I don’t want to bemoan my situation. It has opened doors for me, but behind each door lurks a relentless darkness… a darkness, I fear, that would swallow me whole. Yet sometimes the prospect of that is tempting.

Everything tingles this frost-cloaked night. Tonight my veins have been shot full of heroin, my throat has admitted several tabs of Seven, and my nostrils have snorted up crystal meth… all of this washed down with vodka. I have consumed enough drugs and alcohol to kill another man, to at least make of him a withered creature, old beyond his years; yet I live on, robust, red-cheeked, the picture of youthful good health. Did I say picture? Continue reading

Sight Unseen by Susan Mac Nicol

33123863Tragedy brings together a reserved but brilliant sculptor and an outgoing gallery owner, friends whose love was sidetracked but was always meant to be deeper.

BLINDSIDED

SoCal natives, Nate and Cody have been friends since childhood. Both knew they were different—and the same. At seventeen, a stolen weekend in the Florida Keys drove their connection deeper and hotter than either could imagine. They were meant to be together. Then, for reasons only Nate knows, suddenly they weren’t.

They’re still friends. Best friends. But they’ve moved on and found other partners. The yearning remains, however, despite the long-ago secret that drove them apart, when tragedy strikes, both men find themselves in the dark. They must grope their way back to who and what they are…which they will find in each other’s arms. Sometimes, losing one’s sight can open one’s eyes—and heart.

About Garret Leigh

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason.  She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.

An Exclusive Excerpt from P.O.W.

Roughly, Stone was taken by his upper arms and led into a building. The sudden warmth of being inside shocked his system; he became acutely aware of how cold he’d been. His body started shivering uncontrollably, his teeth clamping down hard on the gag, making the muscles in his jaw stand out, aching.

Without warning, he was shoved face first into a wall. The noose around his neck was loosened, then taken off, and the hood removed. Stone was shoved hard back into the wall, its rough texture scratching his cheek. What was obviously the barrel of a gun was placed to the back of his head, and something said in Arabic. A few moments later, the bindings around his wrists were undone, making his hands tingle with the rush of blood, further proof of how cold he’d actually been.

The light was dim in what looked to be a narrow hallway, with no apparent windows. The gun still pressed into the back of Stone’s head. His shivering body betrayed him, causing the coarseness of the wall to scrape the chapped skin on his cheek, rubbing away the skin.

Still forced against the wall, Stone was stripped naked, the cold once again seeping into the very center of his being. He was brusquely pushed along the dirt floor of the hall, and outside, into a courtyard of sorts. There was a light snow falling, and the cold hit his naked, exposed skin like needles. It was only when Stone saw three other men, Taliban, standing there that he began to get a sinking feeling deep in his gut.

They strung Stone up on a frame that reminded him of a swing set he’d had as a kid. A burst of pain went off in his head as they stretched his arms above his head, stretching the broken ribs. Then there was even more pain when his legs were stretched, then tied to the base of the frame. Stone was stretched tight, spread-eagle, naked, shivering in the cold. There was no sign of Benoit.

A skinny kid, no more than eighteen, slowly walked towards the naked, spread-eagle Stone with an evil grin. Picking up a bucket, he threw water into the Marine’s face. The water was freezing, and after the initial shock, the cold air made Stone’s wet body shiver uncontrollably. The muscles in his jaw were cramping from biting down on the dirty gag so hard, but the rag kept his teeth from chattering.

The kid did this over and over, waiting between each bucketful to let Stone feel the full effect. He could feel his body temperature drop with each subsequent dowsing. His nipples had pulled up so tight and hard he felt as though he could have cut diamonds with them. The pain in his side from the broken ribs had become a dull ache, and he recognized the feeling of his body starting to go into shock.

The other men were cheering the kid on each time the tortured American was doused, feeding off each other like a pack of wild dogs. When Stone felt himself about to black out, he got a hard punch in the gut, making his side scream in pain, bringing him wide awake again. This went on and on and on, with no end in sight.

Watching and Wanting by Jay Northcote

 

watchingandwantingWatching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied…

Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.

Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.

Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.
