Hello sweeties! I hope everyone is okay? We're heading into the weekend once again. My God where does all the time go? Before we know it July will be over and August will be upon us. If I was going to self-published I'd definitely want this lady as my agent. My guest today is not only an extremely talented and popular author, but she's also a friend and someone I admire. Tough as nails too! LOL Please welcome GA Hauser!
Who is, GA? Tell us about yourself.
I’m still working on who I am. I’m an erotic romance writer, an ex-cop, a runner, a wild woman…need I go on? ;)
When did you know you wanted to become a writer?
I never really thought I would be one. I have a habit of experimenting and losing myself. I did the same thing when I became a Seattle Police officer. I never thought I would get through the testing, and then suddenly I was wearing a blue uniform, gun and badge. Writing has been a process of working hard and loving every moment. But I never thought as a child or young adult, I want to be a writer.
Who and/or what prompted you to write your first novel?
I wrote what I wanted to read. At the time I began experimenting in gay erotic fiction, there were no authors out there, at least that I found, combining good solid romance stories with graphic sex scenes. I struggled to find that delicious combination. When I couldn’t I began amusing myself with my own stories.
Where and/or how do you find the greatest inspiration?
It comes from within. When so many people thought what I did was a joke, and I was rejected by a large number of publishers, I found my own strength to keep going. When anyone asks my advice to new writers, I always say, ‘Never give up.’ Sometimes we find the biggest inspiration is ourselves.
What made you chose to write erotic literature in particular? And is there any other genre you’d like to write? And if so, why?
Erotica is where my passion is. I suppose you have to be passionate to write passion. Either that’s redundant or makes perfect sense! I have tried other types of fiction, but my favorite is manlove erotica. So? Write what you love.
Which appears first when contemplating a new project: A character, the plot and/or the title?
Hmm. I suppose the idea, or plot, comes first. Then next a title. After all, you have to save the file with a name. And I love figuring out double-entendres for them. In example, Going Deep or Driving Hard. Love porn titles too. Then I get going on figuring out who is who in the book, and from then on the characters take over.
What’s the hardest part of a novel for you to write: Beginning, middle and/or end? Why?
Maybe the end. Sometimes I love my guys so much, I’m not ready to leave them. But once I hit the magic 200 page mark, I do start to let go and remember they can always appear in another book. And they do. My favorite men are guest stars in many novels.
Has your own life influenced your novels? And if so, how?
Since I have been so many things previous to an author, I can draw on the reality of many careers. Writing about cops, firefighters and first responders can be tough unless you have done it for a living. Police officers have a special place in my heart, so I do love writing about them.
Writing sex/romantic scenes can be a challenge for some authors. Do you find it difficult? If yes, how do you compensate? If no, where do you draw your inspiration?
I don’t find them difficult. I do in my books what I love to do to a lover. So there are no hurdles to overcome. I would imagine most erotic authors are passionate lovers, so it’s not too hard to figure out what goes where.
Do you have a method you use to write the sensual parts? Do you prefer the sex to be open and bold? Or left to the imagination?
Anyone who reads a GA Hauser novel knows I am not shy. Nothing is left to the imagination. My books are graphic sexual romps, and I would never skimp on a good sex scene. My method? Hot! Racy! And delicious! I call what I write, romance porn. Yes, seriously, I do. (So don’t any of you steal that from me! Ha!)
Are your characters based on people you know? Or are they completely fictitious?
A mix of both. They are fictitious because of course the novels are fiction, but a little bit of each character does have some aspect of someone I have either known, or wished I knew.
Who is your favorite character, which you’ve created? And why?
My favorite man in my novels is Mark Antonious Richfield. I guess he’s the fabulously flawed top model, whom I have grown to adore, and I think many fans have fallen for him too.
Can you tell us about your latest release? Give a synopsis.
Blurb for Going Wild- Book 9 in the Action! Series;
In this latest G.A. Hauser Action! novel find out how Mark and the gang are truly ‘Going Wild’ with all of your favorite men finding love in all the wrong places!
After their forbidden affair, twenty-two year old Alexander Richfield and the forty-two year old LAPD SWAT lieutenant, Billy Sharpe, can’t seem to keep away from each other. Billy’s love and attention towards the rising Hollywood star give Alexander just what he craves.
Attorney extraordinaire Jack Larsen introduces his husbands, Adam Lewis, Mark Richfield and Steve Miller to his new law associate, the professional Dom Colt St. John. Mark’s new found love of all things leather and latex brings the men to Colt’s penthouse loft for a BDSM session they will never forget.
Meanwhile Adam Lewis struggles to find work for award winning actors Keith O’Leary and Carl Bronson on the heels of the news that their top-rated cable drama Forever Young has been canceled; a victim of the rising intolerance in society for gay men. In the beginning of Keith and Carl’s stint of the racy drama, Adam begged them to deny they were a gay couple and keep their sexuality a secret. With the pressure from the tabloids and their producers to come out, Keith and Carl succumbed to the exposure and admitted publicly they were gay. Now the test will come if their decision costs them their careers.
Billy sat in his truck, ‘on surveillance’ for Alex’s arrival or to abort the plan if he noticed anyone familiar. He didn’t know anyone who lived in this part of town, but did know its coffee shops from living many years in the LA area.
If he and Alex were spotted talking, what would Billy use as an excuse? Wasn’t it normal for Alex to look to him for guidance?
“Yeah. Tell Steve that.” Billy began to get cold feet and thought it was smarter to cancel. He picked up his cell phone and was about to dial when someone leaned into his open driver’s window.
Billy jumped at seeing Alex so close and he was hit with a wash of nerves. “Oh. Hi. Uh, let me get out.”
“Okay.” Alex backed up.
Billy looked at Alex’s tiny red shorts and midriff top. There was nothing discreet about that young man. He strut his stuff proudly, out, gay and gorgeous. Billy glanced at the glove box, wondering if leaving his gun and badge behind was smart. Never a good idea. He popped it open and grabbed both to clip them back on his waistband.
“Wow. Okay. I’m hard.” Alex laughed.
“Yeah, well.” Billy tried to play it down. “My luck the coffee shop will get held up and I won’t be able to do anything.” He powered up all the windows and got out, closing the pickup’s door. Billy felt like he was on a first date he was so anxious. Being seen with someone as comfortable in their sexuality as Alex, began to rattle Billy. Some of the men he worked with knew he was gay, but he didn’t broadcast it. There was no reason to. “You’re going to be cold in the air conditioning in that outfit.”
“I’m usually hot. I’ll be fine.” Alex made his way with confidence to the front entrance.
Billy ogled his tight ass and black Doc Martins with white socks. Hot? Christ, you’re sex on a fucking stick.
The minute he walked in behind Alex, the room felt as if it became electrically charged. As Alex made his way to the line at the counter, Billy could hear people whispering his name and pointing.
“What?” Alex spun around.
“I forgot you’re so famous.” Billy wished he had thought things out. When people began taking photos with camera phones, Billy chickened out. “I can’t do this.” He retreated and left the coffee shop. He could hear Alex behind him and felt his touch on the arm.
“Billy, wait. Are you afraid to be seen with a gay man?”
He stopped fleeing and faced Alex. The pain in Alex’s face nearly killed Billy. He caressed his smooth cheek. “No, sweetie. I’m thinking about Angel and your father’s reaction to us seeing each other. Even for coffee.”
“That’s why I wanted to go to your place.” Alex laughed but it sounded as anxious as Billy felt at the moment.
The pang of nerves shook Billy. He could confront armed felons, but being seen with the incredibly pretty Alexander Richfield made him quake in his shoes.
Billy focused on Alex’s lips, his soft pout, his long dark shaggy mane blowing in the breeze, his watery green eyes…
“Come? Like in ejaculate?”
“N-no. Come to the cottage.” Billy swallowed down a dry gulp. He wanted Alex. He knew he did.
“You sure? What if Oliver comes home? I don’t want to see Oliver again.”
“This was a very bad idea.”
“No. No, Billy, it wasn’t. I do need to talk to you. If you only knew the shit that’s going on at the studio.”
There it was. Alex’s pout, his helplessness. Billy could eat it up. “Where? Seriously, Alex. You are known everywhere.”
While Alex looked around the busy parking lot, Billy got lost on his treasure trail under his belly button.
“Hang on.” Alex took his phone out of his back shorts pocket. He leaned on a car and glanced at Billy, meeting his eyes. The sensuality of Alex’s leer made Billy’s skin prickle.
“Hey, Kyle. Can I use your room?” Alex licked his lips but not in an overt sexual tease. “Yeah. Uh, ‘bout an hour, two max?” Alex stared at Billy’s crotch. It felt like Alex was stroking it from the intensity of his stare.
“Okay. Thanks.” Alex closed his phone and said, “I have a place to talk if you’re still into it.”
“Near the UCLA campus.”
“That’s where Oliver is hanging out.”
“Then I have no idea where we should go.” Alex crossed his arms, looking frustrated.
“Follow me to the cottage. Oliver never shows up there anymore and Angel is working ‘til four.”
Billy headed to his truck, looking back at Alex as he did the same. Seeing that young man’s body did nothing for Billy’s self control. All he could think about was fucking him.
Will the affair between Billy Sharpe and Alex Richfield be nothing more than a sexual fling? And will Adam be able to battle against the growing tide of homophobia in the media?
In Book 9 of the best selling Action! Series, we see each of your favorite men Going Wild in their search to achieve happiness and true love.
What’s your newest WIP? And when we can expect a publication date?
Yes, it’s called Down and Dirty which will be released in September and is my second BDSM novel. It’s going to an extreme for me, but since Born to Please was such a success, I think my fans are craving some heavy kink. This story is based on a character from an anthology called Chasing the Dream- I am participating in it with Patricia Logan, Lisa Worrall, Sammy Jo Hunt, and Sue Brown. It’s going to be published by Silver Publishing this September. I am also working on Happy Endings. It is set to be released in October.
