Revenge is sexy

There’s an old Klingon proverb: “Revenge is a dish best served cold.” In this case, I’m serving it lukewarm. After taking a bit of a break with Escape From The Mountain Men (Mountain Men 8), the buzzards have come home to roost for the queer Klansmen.

In Revenge Of The Mountain Men (Mountain Men 9), the smoldering lust between sexy black stud Washington Jeffries and hot outlaw leader Tiny Bowen explodes into a night of blazing passion (click here for a smokin’ sample).

Then, it’s payback time for the queer Klansmen. Protagonist Tom Prescott drags the bad guys into their own dungeon for a big dose of their own medicine.

I’ve worked hard on making the white supremacists unsympathetic. Still, this is a sex fantasy, so I’ve made them a lot less evil than their real life counterparts would be.

In the same way, I’ve made the bad guys’ punishment less severe and more playfully sexual than it would be in the real world.

I save the truly hard-boiled sex and violence for gay private investigator Jack Hammer. Jack Hammer – King’s Ransom is available now and I expect to be releasing Jack Hammer – Dick Diamond in 2021.

It took a long time to write Revenge Of The Mountain Men. Some of that was simple length. Revenge is almost twice as long as the other Mountain Men books. My writing process is to put characters into a situation and describe what they do. In this case, they kept going like a vengeful Energizer Bunny.

I also spent a long time working on the ending. I’m happy with what eventually came out, but it was painful. The characters had to move on from punishing the queer Klansmen, but they just didn’t want to cooperate.

Finally, I took a break from Revenge and worked on another project. I always have several projects going, so I can take a break when I get stuck. Eventually, my subconscious came back with an ending for Revenge and a future direction for the characters.

Reunited With The Mountain Men (Mountain Men 10) will be the last book in the series. I’ll be publishing it in January 2021. Writing Revenge was enough of a strain that I need a rest from the Mountain Men.

Next month, I’ll be publishing Cowboys Don’t Kiss And Other Gay and Bisexual Love Stories. This is a collection of my stories about first times: gay, bisexual, lesbian, and even heterosexual. They’re not necessarily about first time sex, but rather people finding new paths. The book includes a brand new story titled Kissing Cowboys. It’s a blazing hot gay time on the ranch as old hands show a greenhorn the ropes.

Hippie Hollow is coming in November. Naked gay and bi lust on Austin’s nude beach.

And in December, San Francisco Swingers. The adventures of . . . Well, the title says it all.

Happy reading.

Escape from serious

The Mountain Men saga gets a little lighter in Escape From The Mountain Men (Mountain Men 8). My protagonists Tom Prescott and Washington Jeffries escape from the homophobic queer white supremacists and hook up with a charismatic leader and his band of gay outlaws.

After Captives Of The Mountain Men (Mountain Men 7), I wanted to make Escape From The Mountain Men lighter while keeping a feeling of reality. The white supremacists are still a threat, but the emphasis is on sexual exploration.

Tom and Washington aren’t very sexually experienced, but they get a lot more experience, doing new things with new men.

And next month, it’s payback time for the queer Klansmen.

Happy reading.
