Those Boys: The Dom is ON!

 

Domming your e-reader…from 7/21!

Domming your e-reader…from 7/21!

Alison Tyler‘s Those Boys officially launches tomorrow and we couldn’t be more excited. (In fact, you can already buy the e-book from Go Deeper if you don’t want to wait for Amazon and B&N.) Alison Tyler is a powerful talent and we know how fortunate we are to publish her. Her voice is to-die-for (especially when she writes as Sandy, in my opinion) and her characters vibrate on the page–as does their sexual connection. Those Boys is a page turner that is very hard to put down. And it explores BDSM lifestyle and psychology in a way that we find as profound as it is enticing. Alison’s Those Girls, in fact, which is the first in the series, was an Amazon BDSM chart-topper that shot us all right out of the water.

We are lucky. Profoundly so.

And you know who’s even luckier than us? Sandy, the narrator of Those Boys. Sandy is “engaging, hot, and compassionate” (Jade Waters), and “Most books don’t come close to making me feel for a character what I feel for Sandy” (Karen Blue). But don’t take our word for it! The wondrous Jade Waters actually invited Sandy (well, Alison really, but then again…) onto her blog as a guest. Below is a glorious snippet, and you can read the whole interview at JadeWaters.com

Jade: OH, SANDY, SANDY, SANDY…THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME, AND FOR ANSWERING ALL MY QUESTIONS. LET US BEGIN…WITH WHERE YOU STARTED. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A DOM, AND HOW DID YOU GET INTO THE LIFESTYLE?

Sandy: That’s like asking a person how he or she got to be tall. Or blue eyed. Or Irish. I am a Dom because I’m a Dom. That said… there is a story to the beginning. At least, to the time when I decided to embrace what I knew lived inside me rather than try to fight those intense desires. I surrendered. Perhaps most Doms won’t admit this, but that’s how it was for me. I gave in.

You’ll hear all about my beginning in Those Days [the prequel]. It started with a girl—the way these stories often do. She slid me an opener. I grabbed it in my fist.

Jade: SO TELL ME—WHAT ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE MOST APPEALS TO YOU?

Sandy: Honesty is everything. Participants in the BDSM lifestyle are honest about what they want, need, crave, require… [Read more at JadeWaters.com]

Those Boys by Alison Tyler—Coming July 21!Other rave reviews of Those Boys:

From Tamsin Flowers, Malin James, Jade Waters of the awesome PillowTalk:

T: I love how fond he is of his subs – he’s not all about the just being bossy and in charge – he really cares for them and what their needs are. He’s interested in exploring their minds, not just in dominating their bodies. It seems like a much more balanced D/s relationship than most other fictional ones.

J: Exactly. And while we do see his need for dominance through his really rich commentary on what he’s doing, wanting, etc., it’s so clear he’s full of compassion and care – but not in a bunny foo foo weird kind of way.

M: Yes! His awareness is completely authentic – he takes his responsibility and control seriously. He is literally giving Rem and Vanessa what they need, and in doing so, he gets what he needs from them. I also love that he has a serious sense of honor. It’s not a typical moral code, but he has a hard, honest integrity.

Read the whole chat here. It’s gorgeous.

From A. M. Hartnett at TheBewilderedWriter.com

Having gotten a sneak peek at this story, I can’t tell you how fitting that gorgeous cover is. If you haven’t already experienced her dom, Sandy, please buy Those Girls immediately. Last year I thought I’d read the best erotic story ever in Alison’s Giving In, then I read Those Girls. Sandy will get into your head and never leave — and she’s writing a prequel! I hope this series goes on and on and on.

Speaking of Alison, I have a confession — and even Alison doesn’t even know this. She’s actually the partial inspiration for Brendan, the hero of Uncover Me. No, really, let me explain… [read more here…]

From Jade Waters at JadeWaters.com:

See, one of the main reasons Those Boys (and the novelette that preceded it, Those Girls) is so amazing is because of Alison Tyler’s authentic and rich portrayal of a true Dom. Did you catch us chattering about this on our Pillow Talk session on Tuesday? If not, here’s a recap—Tyler has made Sandy engaging, hot, and compassionate. She hasn’t made a two-dimensional stereotype of a Dom; instead she’s written someone who cares about his subs, and who is interested in exploring not just their bodies but their minds. Because of all of this, she’s done the number one most important thing that has made everyone stand up and take notice: She’s made him real…

From Karen Blue at Reviews@Hedovibes:

Sandy of Those Boys (and Those Girls) has become my favorite character. A dominant who knows exactly how to take them down, make them beg for more. Peacocks. Those Boys is about control, and submission. It is about desire and letting go. Sandy dominates so easily, he lets Rem get right where he needs him to be. The three characters in this story have more depth then most full length novels. This novella is flawed in only one way. It is too short.

I have only had Those Boys in my hot little hands for a few weeks, and already I have memorized some of it. I read a hell of a lot, like more than is needed or normal. I have too many stories in my head. This one is the best I have read all year, no shit. Most books don’t come close to making me feel for a character what I feel for Sandy.

Good Porn Comes to Those Who Wait – An Interview with Alison Tyler

GDP004-ThoseGirlsCover1800

Click cover to view on Amazon!

Today, we’re thrilled to interview the famed Alison Tyler at the Go Deeper blog. Alison is the author of Dark Secret Love andThe Delicious Torment (both Cleis Press), not to mention dozens of other books—check out her website to find out more. In fact, her novelette, Those Girls, will be FREE next weekend on Amazon (5/9 to 5/11), so don’t miss the promo! We’re also excited about Alison’s Those Boys, which will be the next in the series. We’ll let you know, in due course, when Those Boys will be released, but for now, stay tuned for a hot sneak preview below.

1. We can sense your enjoyment in Those Girls. What did you particularly enjoy while you were writing the novelette? 

I started Those Girls as a tale of vengeance. You’ve heard me say this before, but Vanessa was based on a woman I know—and don’t particularly like. I wanted to create a painful situation for her—but me being me, I wanted that situation to bring her unbelievable pleasure. Vanessa came first. Sandy followed. And I fell in love hard with Sandy.

3. Can you give us a sneaky peek into what Those Boys is about?

Vanessa and Sandy have created a solid, BDSM-filled life. They are about to be joined by Rem, a beautiful boy who is not entirely sure what he wants.

I wondered whether he could sense the sort of life that Vanessa and I shared together. In one corner was her desk, with a laptop, notebooks, pens. And next to the desk was a heavy-duty ring. Sometimes I chained her to her desk—because I loved turning that fabrication you hear so many writers say “I was chained to my desk all weekend”—into a cold, hard reality.

Did he look through the doorway into the kitchen and see the sterling bowl on the floor? Did he have an instant vision of Vanessa, naked, drinking anything I poured for her? Water. Wine. Coffee cooled with pure cream. Could he imagine her with her hair up in a high knot on the top of her head, dipping down to lap from her bowl—her special bowl? Could he pretend for just one second that he might have a bowl at her side?

That thought gave me a hard-on again, and I went to the bathroom to take a piss and get myself under control. It wouldn’t do me any good to be too riled up. I splashed cold water on my face, pat myself dry, took a good long look at my own reflection. No, I’m not a pretty boy like Rem. Not by a long shot. Not like I ever was. I’m hardened. I’m shopworn. I’ve lived the years and have the lines around my eyes that I wear like a testament.

4. Is Sandy’s sexual connection with Rem in Those Boys different to his connection with Vanessa in Those Girls?

Bringing Rem into the picture simply allows me to show Sandy with a man. Sandy’s ability is to see what his lovers want. He has a special trait. A sixth sex sense. He knows what Rem truly desires, and he gives this to him in full:

I pride myself on my ability to read people’s desires. To see something in a person—even a complete stranger—and wrap my fist around that shining need. So where was he? We couldn’t have scratched his itch…. He’d been outside of his comfort zone. That was for sure. But when I’d lubed up his asshole and slid a thumb inside him, when I’d told him that I was going to have Vanessa fuck him with a strap-on—the look he’d given me was one that I understood. I’d found him out. I’d grabbed the gold ring. You don’t walk away from that type of raw honesty.

5. For you, what is so sexy about Sandy?

Sandy is so fucking comfortable with who he is. I love that about him. I would climb into his Levis, slide on his leather jacket, slip on a faded leather cuff in a heartbeat. I’d let my whiskers grow. I’d drag the back of my hand over the hard scruff as I waited for a cup of coffee at the local diner. I’d hear the jingle of coins in my pocket. Sandy is my hero. When I grow up, I want to be him.

6. What else, if anything, would you like to tell us about your writing, Alison?

Stories take time. I’ve been jonesing to write the next installment to Those Girls for awhile. But it took seeing a man in a clothing store for me to realize where the story was headed. I try not to rush myself. Good porn comes to those who wait.

Thanks so much to the fabulous and ridiculously talented Alison! Folks, Those Girls, FREE on Amazon this coming weekend, (5/9 to 5/11). Don’t miss the promo! Also, read another hot excerpt from Those Boys at Alison Tyler’s blog…

Sexting with Jake

FIRST by Jacob Louder - available 4/4/14! Click image for excerpt.

FIRST by Jacob Louder – available 4/4/14! Click image for excerpt.

Jacob Louder’s literary porn novella, FIRST, launches tomorrow. Jake’s book is a radical porn utopia, and you shouldn’t read it unless you’re comfortable with young folks who are under the “legal age of consent” having powerful and connected sex with one another–sex that helps them to be and discover who they are. (Hats off here to Nabakov, who we pretty much idolize at GDP.) Anyhoo, I asked Jake to send me five texts–or “sexts,” if you will–explaining why he decided to write about kids having sex, in First. Here’s what he sent:

1. I’m continually impressed with kids who can identify who they are as sexual beings at such an early age. Even if they can’t identify who they are just yet, it seems like they’re more open to exploration and less consumed with labels. In First, I romanticized this idea. Everyone does what they want with people who want it, with no thought on the past or present. They all live in the moment. There is no shame. These kids are ideal human beings. If they were real, and if there were more of them–lots, lots more–the world could have the most loving, compassionate future.

2. I think I wrote First for me and for everyone else who came out young-ish in the early 90s. It was a completely different climate, with the HIV/AIDS crisis completely snubbed by the U.S. government, very full “closets” in almost every industry, city, and suburb, and not nearly as much representation in the media as there is today. There was no marriage equality. (I have to note, though, that in almost every way, my generation had it much better than the generations before me. I have to thank the love and fight in every single person, in every single activist, who ensured that my coming out and my young existence as queer wasn’t nearly as fucked up as theirs may have been.) At Nico’s age, I never thought I’d be happy with who I was. I thought that I’d have to figure out how to be heterosexual one way or another. I thought I was the only kid who felt the way I did. I had no role models (until I turned about 17 or so). So, Nico is the boy I wish I had been, living a very different life in a very different climate, and fully recognizing that love can be with anyone, as long as there’s honesty and respect. I’m living a bit vicariously.

3. Kids watch porn. Kids have sex. I’m sorry, Moms and Dads, but they do.

4. I think it was easy to write this young utopia because I see kids as being “romantically unblemished.” This isn’t to say that those of us over the age of 18 can’t live or don’t live like the characters in First. But when I think of wide-eyed openness and trust, I think of young humans, of anyone who hasn’t had their hearts ripped out of their chests, like most of us have, one way or another. It was important for me to have every heart on a sleeve. (Except for the case of Rory and John, but their “relationship” is another slice of life that I find kind of interesting to explore.)

5. I wanted to show young people as smart, grounded, and capable of significant amounts of kindness and intimacy. I wanted to show them as nonjudgmental and open and accepting of everyone and everything, as long as that everyone-and-everything are from places of love. I wanted to show them as better than us.

Thanks a million, Jake. I was so moved by your sexts. And folks, FIRST will be available on Friday 4/4/14. Can’t wait!

Kevin Killian on the Hot-and-Sweaty Huddle

e5saNlBnIYKVCMfVcKj9wTJQpbYU2w4EUYByW8KGl04So, did we ever tell you what the amazing Kevin Killian told Angela Tavares about her hot collection, Huddle: Sex with Sporty Queers? He said (*clears throat*) “I enjoyed it thoroughly!”

Thoroughly, I tell you!

Kevin Killian, reading your praise made our jock straps kinda sweaty.

Speaking of perspiration, Huddle, if you haven’t heard, is a collection of erotic stories by Dario Dalla Lasta, Benji Bright, Tamsin Flowers, Theophilia St. Claire, and Christopher Stoddard. In this don’t-show-your-grandma-unless-she’s-into-it tome, the sports field gets sweaty, the cloakrooms get even sweatier, and the boy-on-boy bodies, well, they’re the sweatiest yet. I’m proud of Angela’s collection, and the stories by these bold and bitchin’ authors, because they’re not afraid to enjoy sex to the full — and feel it honestly and hotly on the page.

Wanna see some of Dario Dalla Lasta’s story, “Game Set Match”? Click here.

Now, I told you that to tell you this: GDP author Jacob Louder is currently completing his final draft of a novella called First. First isn’t your usual erotica. And if you get upset about Nabakov’s Lolita, stop reading now. Because First follows the hot exploits of Nico Ericsson, a 14-year old queer with a passion for teens of all genders, including Robbie and his acceptance of his genderqueer identity, Hannah with her incredible — oh God — incredible mouth, and a whole lot of others.

Because teenagers have sex. And we all know it. What’s more, powerful authors, like Dennis Cooper for instance, show us this, time and again. And teen sex is not only some of the hottest sex possible — it is also the sex where we’re often finding ourselves, accepting ourselves, challenging ourselves, expressing ourselves. Whether solo or partnered, teen sex is the place where our sexual bodies are born, where we are told we are shameful but explore it all anyway, where our inner heroes are born and raised, where many of us give the finger to what we’re told to be.

Yes, teenagers have sex. With themselves, with teens, and sometimes with adults. And as an anti-censorship publisher who is fed up of being told we can’t write about certain kinds of humanity, we couldn’t be more excited about Jacob’s First.

Now, Jacob won’t tell you this, but I can: It’s beautiful. And hot. And it’s told from the heart and loins.

Watch this space for your free sample, coming soon. YES!

Coming this Wednesday, Oct 23rd, 2013!

Well, folks, today’s the day: you can finally get your copy of Dirty Little Numbers, read it right away, and then post here what you loved about it. (Or maybe what you didn’t love about it. We’re open-minded girls. We listen to all opinions.) To celebrate this day, I’ve decided to assemble the following teasers (or maybe the following spoilers?) for some of the amazing flash pieces from the anthology. (Adult material, NSFW content.)

And so, without further ado:

Daniel Burnell’s “Visitation”

“The petals of my cunt melt apart and cling to show that my body is ready to open and be penetrated and receive his strange and magnificent cock and to have the long and slow, ecstatic and painful journey to myself begin.”

Mia Hopkins’ “Here’s My Problem, Dr. Kinsey”

“But now, when my husband fucks me, I can’t come unless I think of Jim.”

T.J. Caliber’s “Oops!”

“Even more unsettling when I saw my dad in the outer room, waiting to be next.”

Benji Bright’s “Ceci N’est Pas Un Western”

“Chip’d sure miss that dick of his, though.”

Annabeth Leong’s “Too Much to Give”

“My ass is my own.”

Stephen Dorneman’s “Inappropriate Footwear”

“I could tell from the smoothness and the powdered flecks of skin that she’d recently had a pedicure, and I couldn’t stop myself, so my tongue slipped out like it had a mind of its own and flicked once across her hallux, the great toe, saliva pooling in the corner of my cheek, and I ached for that moment to last forever, but I knew, I knew, before she jerked up her foot that it couldn’t last, it wouldn’t last, it never, ever lasted, and I prayed that a free pair of Nikes would at least buy me her footsteps leaving in silence.”

Shane St. John’s “The Sun Is Also Rising”

“I stretched and swelled, and with a cry that could be heard across the river and into the trees, I gave my essence to him, pressing him to my loins until he told me he couldn’t breathe, and I released him.”

Adrea Kore’s “Dangerous Curves”

“For another night, he is utterly, totally hers.”

You can get your copy of Dirty Little Numbers today at godeeperpress.com, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. Thanks for your support!

A Hotter State: An Interview with Laila Blake (Part 2)

Y0Z_2e4m33EA1AikWpFA3-bZSIG04gM4mLkjj_vZJYkYou can read the first part of this interview here.

4. Why do you think erotica can be so important for society?

I think that well-written erotica can help women reclaim their sexuality. It can give them the language and the tools to begin creating the sex life and the self-image that they want to have. And maybe, in the long run, that will affect young people, too – both men and women – and in that way actually help society. But I think that is already happening on so many other channels as well, like Laci Green’s YouTube channel, to name just one.

I am still constantly baffled and saddened by the amount of negativity thrown against anything that contains sex – from blogs being deleted, to search engine blocks and whole porn bans instead of a real, honest discussion on how to work against the exploitative and shocking aspects of the industry, and how to give parents, and young people the tools to process what they see online. So I suppose on days when I feel particularly hopeful, I might think that writing erotica can help there. That’s one reason why I decided against using a pen name for my erotica.

I’m happy if I touch people with my writing – that’s enough for now.

5. Can you let us know of any other books/stories that you have in the works at the moment? Any forthcoming publications? And how can we get hold of them?

My next publication is actually, and fittingly, an erotic novella. It’s called Driftwood Deeds, coming out with the Ladylit Publishing imprint A Hotter State. During the writing process, my friend and I called it “consent-and-communication-in-BDSM PSA erotica,” and that made me giggle a lot. It’s simply the story of a young woman and a man exploring a little bit of BDSM together, with a lot of talk and a lot of sex.

In fact, it’s really a complete rewrite of the first time I wrote anything involving BDSM and erotica when I was about 18. It shaped a lot of my ideas about writing erotica and my own self-image, and it felt fitting to reimagine it as my first stand-alone erotica publication.

It will come out in November and will be available as an ebook at all major retailers.

6. Do you have any advice about writing great sex scenes?

I am still trying to figure out what other people like, or what the majority of people like – I have absolutely no clue. But if you’re asking what I like to read – then a great sex scene needs to have just as much voice and individuality as any other scene – maybe more. I like sex scenes full of personality – both the writer’s and the characters’. I want to care about the people I read about, I want to feel them, their issues and aspirations, their dirty secrets and their vast range of emotions, even if the scenes just covers sex. I love it, for example, when erotica is coupled with some other kind of hobby or aspect of their life – I’ve written erotica about larpers and about a woman obsessed with the planet Mars, about photography and yoga. There’s nothing I find less erotic than reading some fantasy played out by bland, doll-like characters. I actually blogged about this at length.

I also have a special fondness for physical attributes often societally impressed on us as flaws.

Thank you so much for having me. This was a blast!

Interview with an Erotic Writer: Sommer Marsden

Sommer Marsden

Sommer Marsden

Today, we interview the talented, unapologetic Sommer Marsden, whose erotic story, “Echo Chamber,” appears in Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame. Enjoy!

1. Sommer, you are renowned for your gorgeous, hot erotica. Why do you enjoy writing erotic stories?

Well, first of all, thank you. You are good for the ego! However, to be honest, I have no idea. I accidentally stumbled over an erotic story online one day. I read the story and was surprised at how well written it was and how much I enjoyed it. Then, of course, I wondered if I could write something like it. The attempt to write erotica, adding the sex to my work, was like putting a key in a lock that I didn’t even know existed. Adding the sex to the mix was the shift in my writing that took me from a “kinda writer” to a full-time writer. I have no idea why. It’s just how it happened for me. With sex in the equation, I’ve found I can write just about anything.

2. Who are some of your inspirations in the genre?

The first erotic book I bought was Alison Tyler‘s Exposed. I’ll shame myself (or, as the old saying goes, tell the truth and shame the devil) by admitting that, before I started writing erotica, I never really read it. I’m bit of a backwards tale in the world of writing. I didn’t start reading erotica until after I’d sold a few pieces. After I inhaled Exposed, I went and bought Hurts So Good (edited by Alison Tyler). In that volume, I discovered a lot of fabulous writers. There are so many writers who inspire me, but beyond AT, off the top of my head, I always make a beeline for stories written by Justine Elyot and Vida Bailey (who does not write a lot, but what she writes is worth the wait). Those are just a few!

3. Can you tell us a little about your story” Echo Chamber” in Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame?

I know some people have issues with ‘loud sex,’ and I imagined it would make it worse if you had one of those lovers who made you feel bad about it. I think we’ve all had a lover who’s made us feel bad about something. Lucky for her, my heroine meets up with a new lover who wants her to make a ruckus about it– if it feels good, let me know. And he decides that the acoustics in the bathroom might be exactly what she needs to really whoop it up. It was a fun story to write. Sometimes noisy is good. Really good.

4. Why do you think erotica can be so important for society?

To me, erotica is all about human connection. Understanding each other in the barest, most human way. And I think most of us could do with a little more human connection. Especially nowadays. So much of what we do is removed from the personal element. We “communicate” from behind keyboards so much now. My hope for most of my stories is that people will read them and be inspired to seek out that intimate, human connection. Nothing would make me happier than to think of my stories inspiring a supremely intimate moment…or three.

5. Can you let us know of any other books/stories that you have in the works at the moment? Any forthcoming publications? And how can we get hold of them?

Right now I’m working on two totally different things. I’m putting the final touches on the final book from my Divination Falls male/male shifter series. So, I have two very volatile, attractive shifter types having hot gay sex. And then, on the other hand, I am putting the finishing titles on a book for Ellora’s Cave that’s a fun, hot hetero tale of modern love–no title decided on yet. The Divination Falls book will be available from Xcite, probably late 2013, early 2014. The other title will be (fingers crossed) out with Ellora’s Cave in 2014. In December, I also have the U.S. release of Restless Spirit coming out with Sourcebooks Casablanca and a dystopian novel titled Hollow Men coming out with Resplendence Publishing. Very different kinds of novels, but both are very hot and loaded with that human connection I spoke of. I aim to please!

6. Do you have any advice about writing great sex scenes?

Keep it as honest as possible. Leave out all the acrobatics and focus on the intimacy. It can be sizzling or funny or even sad. Just focus a little less on the mechanics and a little more on the emotion, and you might be surprised at how scorching the final product is.

Sneaky Peek at Stella Harris’ “Aquamarine”

This post is for adult eyes only.

Today, another preview from our brand new, erotic story collection, Shameless Behavior, which will be out this coming week. Stella Harris‘ “Aquamarine” sees Kelsey’s partner, Will, coming out about his love of cross-dressing in the bedroom. Specifically, Will loves having sex in women’s panties. Here’s the point where Kelsey sees Will in panties for the first time:

Kelsey changed in the bathroom down the hall, and then waited impatiently by their bedroom door for Will to call out that he was ready, like in a doctor’s office.

When the call finally came, Kelsey rushed through the door before stopping in her tracks. Will was face down on the bed—a sight to behold. One of his legs was bent just enough to give her a perfect view of his body and the panties, which were a perfect fit. The sea green satin almost glowed against Will’s tan skin. The waistband sat at the top of the curve of Will’s ass, and the slightly transparent fabric was stretched just enough to give a preview of what lay beneath.

Kelsey moved forward and slid her hands down Will’s back, but didn’t let herself touch the fabric yet. Now she was ready to slow down, to make this experience special, and to build anticipation. She’d meant to do that for Will’s benefit, but her own fingers were twitching with eagerness to touch.

Many thanks to Stella for so perfectly exploding the myth that a butch heterosexual man can’t be hot for his partner in femme panties. I particularly love how excited Kelsey is to see Will dressed this way. Often, sex is hottest when it surprises us, right?

Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame will be on sale in the next few days.

Bonjour sexy. Au revoir shame.
