I'd like to announce a super special guest today! BJ Hayes is here talking about her writing process and giving us a peek at her new Male/Male Erotic Romance release, Oral Invitation! She's also agreed to give away an ecopy of Oral Invitation to one lucky commenter. So, don't forget to leave a comment!
Let's dive in!
R.R: Tell us a little about Oral Invitation.
BJ: Oral Invitation is a male/male erotic romance short story. Here’s the blurb:
Dylan Lindstrom has always loved women and always will. At least that's what he thinks until free spirit Jackson Carter invites him back to his place for a beer. Jackson is athletic, outgoing, good-looking, loves motorcycles—a man’s man—and Dylan feels an instant connection with him. But when Jackson offers him more than a bike ride through Denver, Dylan must decide if he’s ready to accept Jackson’s oral invitation.
R.R What was your inspiration for this wicked story?
BJ:A few years ago, my crit partners and I challenged each other to write a male/male erotic romance. Oral Invitation is the result!
R.R Is there a message in your book that you want readers to grasp or was it written for the purpose of pure naughty enjoyment?
BJ: There is a message that it’s the person that counts rather than his or her sex, but it’s mostly for naughty enjoyment.
R.R Describe your writing process?
BJ:I wish I had more of a process, lol. I basically sit down and start writing. I’ve come up with some of my best stuff when I had no idea where I was going.
R.R How long have you been writing?
BJ: About forty years! I’ve written off and on since I learned when I was six.
R.R Are there any authors you would name as influences?
BJ: Too many to count – at the top are Lisa Kleypas, Jaid Black, Joan Johnston, and Judy Blume.
R.R What led you to the erotic genre?
BJ:No matter how hard I tried not to get steamy, my characters always ended up in the sack by chapter four. When I found erotic romance, I knew it was for me!
R.R Are you currently working on anything deliciously wicked?
BJ:An anthology of lesbian erotica. I’ll be writing under the pseudonym Lily Jade.
R.R You've got six key words to describe your own wicked fantasy. What are these six words? (Example: Huge Jackman, Naked, Beach, Sunset, Mojito's, Orgasm)
BJ:Gerard Butler, Emmanuel Delcour, me – that’s all I need :).
R.R. Sleepwear: Nude of PJ's?
BJ: P.J.s, but only because I’m always cold :).
R.R Sweet & chocolaty, or salty & crunchy?
R.R Hugh Jackman or Brad Pitt?
BJ: Hugh Jackman, totally.
R.R What is your all-time favorite "get you in the mood" song?
BJ:Lady in Red
R.R Can you share a wicked excerpt with us today? (the naughtier, the better! *wink*)
“Here it is.” He handed Dylan a brochure. “I’ve done this ride before. We go through Dillon, then over Rabbit Ears Pass through Steamboat to this tiny little town called Murphy where we have dinner and spend the night. Then we head back around the long way.” He pointed to the map inside the brochure. “There’s some great scenery through here, and we ought to glimpse some wildlife. A beautiful canyon. It’s about four hours the first day, five hours home the second. Because it’s short, we don’t have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn.”
Dylan laughed. “That sounds good. I’m not a real morning person. Except when I get up to play racquetball.”
“You play? So do I. We should play sometime.”
“Yeah, sure. I’d like to.”
“Okay, I’ll give you a call.” He pressed the brochure into Dylan’s hand. “You can keep this. I hope you’ll think about going.”
“I sure will. I haven’t had the time for a long ride in a while. I’ve missed it.” He took a long draft of his beer. “I used to ride all summer when I was in college, the years after college, too. I haven’t had time lately. Been too busy building my business. I sure miss the sun and wind on my face, though. So relaxing.”
“I know what you mean,” Jackson said. “There’s something about being on that bike that relaxes me like nothing else.” He let out a soft chuckle. “Well, almost nothing else.”
“Yeah.” Dylan couldn’t help smiling. “I’d take a good blow job over a bike ride any day.”
“Me, too.” Jackson looked straight into Dylan’s eyes. “You want one now?”
Dylan nearly blew beer out his nose. “Excuse me?”
Jackson’s dark eyes penetrated his skin. Dylan closed his own for a moment, but Jackson’s stare still burned him. Like a thousand little fire-laden thorns prickling his entire body.
“I asked if you’d like a blow job.” Jackson’s deep voice was husky, sensual.
“Well…b-by whom?” Dylan stammered.
Jackson’s full lips curled upward into a teasing grin. “By me, fool.”
Dylan swallowed. “You can’t be serious.”
“Oh, I am.”
“Oh my God.”
“You haven’t lived until you’ve had a blow job by a guy. Guys have stronger mouths, and I’ll never complain about my jaw aching, because I’ll enjoy every mind blowing minute of it.”
R.R Thank you so much for being interviewed for Wicked Wednesday, BJ! We hope to see you again soon.
