duskpeterson: An apprentice builds a boat as a man looks on. (Default)
A. B. Gayle posted an interview with me at her blog. We discussed various topics related to BDSM fiction, such as the impact of Fifty Shades of Grey.

The interview is part of a series of interviews with BDSM writers that A. B. Gayle has been posting as a lead-up to the spring publication of her novel Leather+Lace, which I've had the opportunity to read in manuscript form. (How could I pass up the chance to read a BDSM novel set in Australia?) It's part of her Opposites Attract series; the first novel in the series, Red+Blue, received third place for the William Neale Award for Best Gay Romance in the Rainbow Awards 2012. She has an interesting Pinterest board about the elements that went into creating that novel.

duskpeterson: An apprentice builds a boat as a man looks on. (Default)
In 1965, Loren was initiated into the mysteries of leather by a motorcyclist passing through his isolated Midwestern town. Twenty years later, he is owner of the town's gay bar, which serves as a leather bar after hours. He is a master, trained to control and discipline men.

If only he could convince other leathermen of this fact. Having given up hope of ever finding someone who will submit to him, Loren is forced to content himself with secret fantasies. Then he meets the perfect man for his fantasies: handsome, uniformed, full of confidence and strength. But Loren doesn't realize that Ken holds secrets which will initiate them both into a new mystery. . . .

Leather life in a rural town is explored in this series, which looks back on an earlier era. In a time and place where being gay is reason enough to be arrested, the leathermen of Mayhill struggle to keep their small community alive.

Parental supervision is strongly suggested for this story.

From the back came a quiet voice. "The master makes the slave happy."

Cover for Leather, Licking, and Lawnmowers

Leather, Licking, and Lawnmowers takes leathersex out of its usual bars and back alleys, setting it in unexpected locations: A 5&10. A potluck. A hamburger joint. A college waltz party. Even when the leatherman who narrates these stories returns to the Eagle bar, things don't go quite the way he expected. . . .

Written by the former director of the Erotic Authors Association, who is also editor of True Tales: An Erotic E-zine of Masculinity and Power, this five-tale gay erotica collection includes the story "Spontaneous," runner-up for the 2006 Rauxa Prize for Erotic Fiction.

For adults only.

Thinking about it, I've decided that bringing Jell-O to a gathering of leathermen wasn't my big mistake. My big mistake was bringing it on the night that Master Trent was attending.
