Hey again folks. This is resident bad girl BL with exciting news about my next book. Under the Gun. WOOT. So, if you’ve been following the muses of Sharita Lira, then you know this was Michael Mandrake’s story. Yeah, I know, right? The first story where Michael really pushes the envelope. *laughs*
Well unfortunately, the company that pubbed UTG folded and when Shar decided to re-release, she turned it over to me. Yep, me since I am the bad girl and this is more my type of thing. You know what I like to write so a story with two hot men who are looking for love along with strange kinks should appeal.
It does and so here I am giving UTG a chance once again. So what exactly is Under the Gun? It’s an interracial m/m romance about a two men who come from different paths, but find out just how much they have in common. Malik Day is a discharged soldier under the now defunct DADT policy while Camdyn Hardy is a private investigator who just lost his lover when he decided homosexuality wasn’t for him.
Michael got the idea from a sub call he answered and well, they didn’t accept it. Thank goodness Michael stuck with the idea and Malik and Cam got a much longer story. Ooh and then a series. Yep, this will be three or four books. Michael wrote the first two and I’ll be adding my own little special touches. With the last ones, it will be all BL. Nice to share one head right? *giggles* Ah we work Shar to death!
So what music did Michael use to write this? Since the story is a romance with two very interesting characters, both of headstrong, stubborn, proud, and alpha, he chose some metal. Some Sevendust and Ministry for the angst, some Nine Inch Nails. For the calmer and more tension filled moments, Depeche Mode. For the love scenes, some smooth R&B like Sade. For the kinky portion, back to NIN and he says Sanctified was the tune. Michael described the tone as seductive with an edge. He added it put him in a particularly interesting mood for the whole book as well as every sexy encounter with Camdyn and Malik.
Oh and the faces he picked?
Jeezus, could they get any cuter!
Former porn star David Taylor and hot model Tyson Beckford.
Yummeh! I think they look good together, don’t you?
I know you agree.
