Merry Christmas

This is just a very Merry Christmas wish from me, and also a huge thanks to all readers and reviewers who have made this first year really special. I've met some really special people along the way and it's been such a humbling pleasure. 
Thanking you and wishing everyone a very happy New Year.

Free Audio Excerpt Available: Antidote

The lovely guys over on Goodreads' BDSM Bedtime Stories have kindly provided an audio excerpt of Antidote, with the lovely Sirly Eric as narrator. It covers some serious play time with Jack, Jan, and Gray, with Gray up for more than a little... remastering of Jack. 

Antidote itself introduces a little of the Society of Masters shared-world project with Lynn Kelling's Deliver Us series. It's good to know because La Crimson Femme has also taken time out to interview Jack (with Gray) and someone Ms. Kelling herself knows quite well from her Deliver Us series. And, well, Gray and him... are playing Jack up a little as La tries to interview Jack. It gets a litlle wild with two top Doms causing some trouble over there, so just... be... warned.

For those interested in the audio & interview, here's the link to  Goodreads and also to La Crimsom Femme's blog.

But of course, the audio is available here too:

Latest Release: Underground Erotica (Anthology: coming December 1st 2013)

Going dark... going sexy... going tasty teasers with tales from... Underground Erotica.

Anthology: Underground Erotica
Release Date: December 1st 2013
Short story title: Original Sin
Author: Jack L. Pyke (plus Maryn Blackburn, Karenna Colcroft, C.P. Foster, Lauren Gallagher, Erin Lark, Kate Lowell, and Cleo Peitsche)
Price: $3.99 (All proceeds go to Absolute Write, a writing community) Pre-order at All Romance Ebooks

I've put an early Christmas order in for the guy on this cover *whistles*. But Don't be fooled, although he's got a lovely lady by his side here, my short story "Original Sin" is very much pure male on male erotica. 

Original Sin. The reason why there's honour amongst thieves.
Barely touching his early twenties, Connor's opted for the safe life, just needing to make it through the factory work week without screwing up. But after being left in the middle of nowhere by his boss, Connor's only way to get back is to carjack a ride home.
Problem is, he’s not the only one with his eye on this particular prize. And this other watcher, he comes with a hell of a lot more experience at taking what isn’t his. Tonight, for screwing up his plans, Connor's about to be shown why you never sin against an original sinner.
And for a taste of what else is in store:

Welcome to the Underground!

The erotica authors of the Absolute Write are taking you underground—sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively. Karenna Colcroft’s haunting story gives sex in public an unexpected twist, and Erin Lark makes waiting out a storm into something special—and hot!— before Kate Lowell draws you deep into a cave for a steamy encounter. Lauren Gallagher sends you back to the 1930s for some gambling, bootlegging, and a little forbidden ménage, while Maryn Blackburn brings two enemies together in the wintery depths of World War II.

If you’re in the mood for something extra spicy, you’ll love how C.P. Foster opens up a very new world for a curious barmaid. And stick around because Cleo Peitsche and Jack L. Pyke keep the kink coming.

Come join us—but fair warning. Once you go underground, you may never want to come back…

All proceeds from this anthology benefit the Absolute Write online community.

Cover Reveal: Antidote. Introduction to The Society of Masters.

I'd seen the mock-up to this cover last week, and (grinning ear-to-ear) I'd fallen in love with the tone. So seeing the final version this morning came as such a wicked surprise, especially seeing the symbol at the bottom of the right hand cover there.  

The Society of Masters... whips... it all looks and sounds so, so... secret and sexy. I'll explain in a minute, but first: 

Antidote (blurb):

It should have stayed firmly in the past.

Video footage of Jack Harrison sleeping with Cutter, a man who has mutilated teenagers, should have stayed dead and buried with the man who had filmed it. Yet when footage to Jack’s past starts appearing on Internet porn sites, Jack’s whole world is again turned on its head. At first the porn links are done to unsettle, to disrupt Jack’s fire and ice world: all the sexed-up adrenaline of being caught between the pleasure to Gray Raoul's BDSM kink, and the gentleness of Jan Richards’ vanilla touch. But when the content of the porn sites force even Gray to turn his back on Jack, leaving Jack isolated and away from the full protection of the Master’s Circle, Jack is left at the mercy of a group of men who are out to alter Jack’s whole perception on his BDSM lifestyle.
As brutally as possible, Jack’s sex life is now live webcam feed for a whole new audience.

Antidote's cover is pretty special to me, partly because it's the sequel to Don't..., but also because of that symbol on the cover. If you have a sneak peek at Ms. Kelling's new cover to Forgive Us, just down there to the right hand corner, it carries one too.

The Society of Masters represents everything behind mine and Lynn Kelling's shared-world project (between Don't and Deliver Us). It also means that every project concerning the Society of Masters will come with a variant of this symbol: a whip circling the name of our realm: The Society of Masters (or SM for short).

Antidote will be the introduction to the SoM, briefly setting the scene for Ms. Kelling's Forgive Us (book #3 to Deliver Us). Ms. Kelling's novel will be the main setting for the shared-worlds to begin with, with Jack, Jan, and Gray taking a trip over to America. My Don't #3 novel will then see Trace, Gabe, and Dare come over to English shores. Other tie-in projects are also in the making.

Every time I take a step back and look at all of the possibilities to this Society, it frustrates me that I can't write all of the ideas down quickly enough. I need more hands, and I need more time, because the opportunity and ways to connect the worlds are limitless. And as an author, I love the drive and passion that it is instilling. 

Antidote coming soon:

Chat: with BDSM Consultant/Erotica Author: Dilo Keith

About Best Gay Erotica 2014
I get the typical vanilla reactions whenever I talk to this lady: awe, excitement, possibly followed by feeling more than a little daunted, especially when caught standing in the shadow of this lady and her BDSM boots. Why daunted by Ms. Keith and her BDSM boots? Well, not only is she a talented erotica author, with her latest work “A Port in the Storm” released December 10th in the Best Gay Erotica 2014 anthology, from Cleis Press – but she’s also my BDSM consultant.

Being one hell of a tough lady in general, she’s also a good friend (and one whose cane I try to avoid at all costs, knowing just how hard she can hit when I’m not paying attention! I get the toughest and best in go-to people lately).

Ms. Keith has worked with me on my debut Don’t… She is also my BDSM consultant in Antidote, providing conceptual and technical guidance into Jack and Gray’s world – basically she’s my go-to lady when I need BDSM advice. The whipping scene with Jack on the X bondage post? With Jan using a whip for the first time? By the time we’d finished finalising that scene, I remember feeling like Jack as he'd sat on the hospital bed: bruised, bloodied, and just needing a hug now it was all over! Even down to knowing the length and weight of the flogger, corrections over where to tie Jack’s shirt around his waist, to understanding the damage that might occur to the whip if it hit wood, Ms. Keith was there providing her C&TG (conceptual and technical guidance). And I’m eternally grateful for every input she has had.

So today, I’m really glad that I’ve pinned her down for a chat on where she is in her writing career, and also to possibly try and capture a few of her thoughts on BDSM in fiction.
Hi, Dilo, I’m really glad you could make it today.

Dilo: I’m excited to be here, with you pinning me down and taking my interview virginity. Seriously, I appreciate all the lovely things you always say about me and what I share with you. Your friendship means a lot to me and working with you is a great pleasure.

Any wonder I like this lady? Talking about losing virginity, you’re my first stop for BDSM advice when it comes to stepping into the BDSM lifestyle. One point that always comes up for debate is the portrayal of BDSM in fiction. How would you classify your depiction of BDSM?
Definitely on the side of realism, almost obsessively, I think. I like to get into the details of life rather than world-building. I focus on the dominance and submission more than the B&D or S&M, although I do tend to include physical punishment in most stories.

What kind of mistakes do you see new authors making who don’t live the lifestyle?
I’m hesitant to say “mistake” since that implies there is a “correct” way, but I see where you’re going with this, and sometimes it really is a mistake. I should mention that I rarely read BDSM stories that haven’t received excellent reviews, particularly with regard to the author’s understanding of BDSM, so I don’t have examples of “mistakes”. I also want to say actually living the lifestyle isn’t a requirement to good BDSM writing, but it certainly helps. I can think of at least one author *looks at interviewer* with a very creative mind who grasped many of the basic concepts of D/s and needed only some fine-tuning and technical consultation for some scenes.

Anyway, going to the question, there are at least two general aspects that come to mind. One is not appreciating the nuances of the relationship – things like submission and consent, the dynamics underlying the relationship. On the one hand, they’re difficult to research, especially the more subtle aspects, but since they involve emotions and concepts not unique to BDSM, people can write about them competently without actually living the lifestyle. The most disturbing BDSM I’ve read involved emotional abuse, a sub forced to make an unfair choice without the dom being portrayed as doing something very wrong. I won’t trash an author in public, so that’s all you get.

The other is technical – how things are done and how they are experienced, whether it be toys or an activity. It’s often minor, such as pairing impact toys with the sort of marks they leave. A third area that could be unrealistic, although not necessarily mistaken, is relationship structures. Because of the varied structures of BDSM relationships and the extent to which BDSM can be integrated into a relationship, I’m not especially concerned about those. Some arrangements might be awkward or improbable, but there’s a rather wide range of structures, from couples experimenting with occasional kinky sex to full-time polyamorous leather households, so almost anything is fair game in fiction. I’m more concerned about physical and emotional safety. I’ve posted links to several relevant posts by other authors: Dilo Keith Website

This leads on to my next question. How do you research BDSM?

So far, I’ve been writing what I know -- I’ve been in the lifestyle since 1986 -- but I’ve looked up technical details on occasion. At parties, I’ve been known to check the feasibility of positions or movements on certain equipment. Once, I had a question I couldn’t easily answer with my regular resources, so I tried asking questions on a kinky forum (not FetLife) and I received more than one “do your own darned research” sort of answer. I thought I was. There’s an understandable reluctance among those in the lifestyle to be viewed as creatures to be studied, especially now that so many inexperienced – with BDSM – authors are writing about BDSM.

What’s the most annoying thing people say when you tell them you’re a BDSM writer?
I can’t think of anything annoying. Sadly, there’s no one to tell other than a few kinky friends, who are of course positive. I’ll answer a different question – my favorite response about my writing. I told a relative I wrote erotica about gay men – I’m don’t know if I mentioned the kinky part -- and he said something along the lines of “the research must have been very interesting”. That was very cool, especially considering he probably thinks I’m straight.

Which authors have influenced your writing the most?

For writing erotica overall, the Best Gay Erotica series has been a major influence. No specific authors come to mind.

Who are your favourite authors?

That’s difficult. I know I’ve left out some, but as a start for fiction authors, in no particular order: Gillibran Brown, Simon Sheppard, Carol Queen, Claire Thompson, Greg Herren, Lois McMaster Bujold, Laura Antoniou, James Lear, P.A. Brown, Laurie R. King, Michael Thomas Ford, William J. Mann, John Preston, Lawrence Schimel. If I haven’t read more than two of their books, I didn’t list an author here.

What are you reading now?

I recently finished all of Larry Duplechan’s books, at first because he’s an editor I’m working with (Best Gay Erotica 2014), but mainly because I enjoy his writing and his books form a series. I’ve also gone on a mystery binge. Among others, I’m working my way through books by Greg Herren, R. D. Zimmerman, and Richard Stevenson. The last BDSM I read was Jane Davitt’s Room at the Top series, the first two of Lynn Kelling’s Deliver Us series, and Alison Tyler’s Dark Secret Love. On October 25, my blog will be part of Tyler’s promotional blog tour for the book. I know you’re working with Lynn Kelling and I’m looking forward to reading those stories.

Thank you! It’s a fun time for Lynn and me. And I’m looking forward to your blog hop on the 25th. Now, I know you’re a BDSM author and consultant, but which do you prefer to write: erotica or erotic romance?

At the risk of us not sharing a definition of “erotica”, that’s what I like to write. I think my writing falls between the two. I explore the dynamics of BDSM relationships from a more intellectual perspective, not as emotionally as you might expect in erotic romance -- things like how the characters work out matters of monogamy, role choices, discrepancies in definitions, and so on. The plots tend to be about those aspects. I’m fascinated by sexuality and how it’s worked into our lives. Because I explore relationships rather than focusing on the sex – although there’s no shortage of that – my work still appeals to readers of erotic romance. Most of my early writing influences involved romance of some sort, so my work reflects those connections.

May I ask, how flexible are you as an author? Do you write purely for readers who prefer m/m, or can you switch pairings?

Flexible, but with preferences. I prefer to write M/M and so far, all of my writing has LGBT characters. I don’t especially like writing or reading about women having sex. I enjoy having sex with women and generally like stories with lesbian main characters, but I don’t like reading and writing about the sex itself. In one case, I changed the sex of two characters in order to submit a story to a lesbian collection. That was an interesting and fun challenge. Because it doesn’t have to involve gender-specific activities, it’s much easier to do that sort of thing with BDSM. I didn’t have to write much about the workings of the lady bits in that story. The real-life event that inspired the story involved three women (including me), but I had originally written it as M/m/f. I saved all the pieces that I had to, um, cut out and might work them into another short.

You handle quite a lot of gay ménage. What is the draw to this over m/m? 
It’s a reflection of my real life and the appeal of complexity. Most of my own relationships have involved a third person, as both three women or two women with a man.

And out of everything that you have written, which is your favourite?

Because of the story behind the story, I’d say “Coming of Age,” the third part of a trilogy I wrote for a friend, inspired by a real event. That’s in Say Please: Lesbian BDSM Erotica, from Cleis Press. The story combines her life and mine, and has representations of me, her, my first dom, and my first dom’s slave. The first story forms part of “Consequences,” another favorite, one I like more for the story, but less for the origin. The second story wasn’t much more than PWP fanfiction, so I’m unlikely to revise that one for publication.

Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they from your imagination?

Real people, as a package or selected traits. I think my talents lie in areas other than my imagination.

What is the sexiest scene you’ve ever written?

Can’t pick one. What I like best is punishment scenarios, so to me, that’s the sexiest sort of scene. While the complexities of threesomes and switching excite me between the ears, punishment is more between my legs. My first M/M publication had a spanking scene with some Daddy/boy role play elements. It’s no longer available, but I’m in the process of submitting it elsewhere because it’s one of my favorites. There are a few other hot punishment scenes in my novel-length manuscript.
We know you’re an author; what’s your day job?
Let’s just say research, science stuff.
Lol, research it is. What is your latest release? And where can we find it?
My only stand-alone release is “Make Mine to Go”, which came out about a year ago. Since then, I’ve submitted a few short stories to anthologies that aren’t out yet.

It’s also on Amazon and other re-sellers, but it’s cheaper from the publisher and there are sometimes sale prices. I don’t write to earn a living, but some authors do, so I want to mention that with most of the e-publishers, authors get paid much more from direct sales.

Anyway, public service announcement aside, my newest release will appear in an anthology due out December 10th from Cleis Press, Best Gay Erotica 2014. My story is “A Port in the Storm.” It involves the male threesome I usually write about, punishment, and role switching. The book is available for pre-order from Amazon and probably others, although not from the publisher. 

I expect my story “Consequences” to appear in Alison Tyler’s collection called Blush, but it’s not yet definite. I’ll have release info on my web site. That one will have a mixture of erotica themes and orientation. I submitted two short stories for another collection, but I haven’t heard from the editor. They’re all with Cleis Press, and as far as I know, they will all be in print as well as digital format.

And what are you working on now?

After I put the finishing touches on the M/M/M story with the Daddy scene, I’ll probably go back to working on my novel-length collection of stories about the same threesome. They loosely fit together to form a single story, but I’ve been creating stand-alone shorts instead, at least lately. If an appealing anthology call comes up, I might try another short story.

Where can readers find you?

They can reach me directly by email or through sites with PMs. I haven’t been especially active online lately, so here’s a guide to where I might be lurking:

My website is more of a resource collection now, but I make an appearance occasionally and the Contact Me page works.

BDSM group at Goodreads (Dilo Keith) and also Absolute Write Water Cooler (DiloKeith) – I’ll make a post when there’s a topic of interest. PM works.

Facebook and Twitter @dilokeith – I don’t post much, but I’ll get messages.

FetLife (Dilo_Keith) – I’m even less active there unless I get in the mood, but that could change. It’s easy to get lost on that site, so I rarely tempt myself.

Direct contact: email dilokeith at gmail.

And finally, what are your daily must-stop blogs and websites?

Unfortunately, I don’t have much time for all the outstanding blogs I’ve found, so I usually limit myself to sites where I’ve made friends. I prefer to interact on a forum rather than commenting on blogs or social networks. The few I check every day are Absolute Write, particularly the erotica sub-forum, the forum portion of JustUsBoys, a gay porn site that has a wide variety of non-porn discussions, Empty Closets, a site created for LGBT youth, primarily for support, and the BDSM group on Goodreads (there are some other GR groups I don’t visit as often). Others I check regularly are Erotica Readers and Writers Association, and Gillibran Brown’s diary. I get email notices for about 20 blogs, some of which I’ve listed on my web site.

Dilo, as ever, it’s really good to have this time out to catch up and hear about what’s going on with you and your writing. I’m going to take this opportunity to say a huge, huge, thanks for working with me on my projects. You’ve helped me in huge – huge – ways, and I’ll always be grateful for the time you always seem to have for me, no matter how green and new my questions must sometimes seem. Thank you.
Dilo: You’re very welcome, and thank you for taking such an interest in me, having me here, and asking terrific questions both in and out of this chat. I love your creativity and the way you stimulate my thinking.
If you are an author wishing to look at researching the BDSM lifestyle, I would highly recommend Ms. Keith. Her knowledge and patience is a credit to her and all that she does. For further information, please contact her via her web site.

Author Bio

Other than what I did for work (science and academic articles) I didn’t think much about writing most of my adult life. I came out as gay in 1978 and acknowledged my semi-suppressed interest in BDSM in 1985. As part of discovering BDSM, I started dating men and discovered that gender wasn’t especially relevant. My contacts with the gay and kink communities are largely online these days, especially since I moved to a relatively rural area outside of a major US East coast city. I live a low-key D/s lifestyle punctuated by attending an occasional party and teaching caning. I started writing fiction in 2009. A relatively recent addition to my kinky life is an online submissive. When he’s not performing as the willing victim of my sadism, he serves me as an excellent editor. “Dilo” is an acronym of Different Loving, the title of a nonfiction book about BDSM.

It'll be all right on the Night.

I swear, sometimes I need banning from the computer. As far as screw-ups and and bad ideas go, I should come with a warning, or maybe a bag over my head. Yeah, definitely a bag, mostly to try and hide the chuckles and groans. 

My latest glitches? Oh man... they're beauties.

On trying to decide titles, I'll always bounce a few ideas back and forth with hubby. For example, Antidote went through many, including Anti-Don't (which hubby still thinks sounds better, being his idea, lol). So trying to settle on a title for a novella, one that really sums up the dark fallout of vicious psychological mind games, we started doing the usual, just brainstorming and throwing out ideas, when bright sprak, me, chirps in with, "Ah -- Between the Cracks."

Hubby went very quiet, very quickly, then failed to keep the growing grin off his face. "Between the Cracks? Seriously?" he said. "Erotica, and you're going... Between the Cracks? Jack... for godssake, take a break."

Took me a while to catch on, then, yeah, I knew I needed a break. Didn't help later when hubby, one of my beta's, sat back and chuckled after reading a very serious scene of mine.

"Around the clock surveillance, hmmm?" he said, peering over at me.

"Yeah? I know it seems extreme, but it needs that there." I said.

"Hmmmm? Better read it again, Jack, and just make you sure you want that particlular line in there."

I did: 
"You're on lockdown until I can arrange around the cock surveillance."

"Cock surveillance? Really?" Hubby tried so hard not to laugh. "You need another break, don't you, Jack?"

"Yeah," I mumbled, sinking into my coat and hiding. "Maybe just a little one."  

Sometimes I really need to step back and take one hell of a serious break.

Interview at Boys In Our Books

The lovely Boys in our Books interviewed me today (23/9). The questions hit a different persepctive for me, just coming at it from a reader's pov, albeit an author/reader one. Getting the time to get comfy and talk about books is something I love, so it was good to rave about what hits the spot for me and why. And there were some lovely people who stopped by to join in and make it a really enjoyable ride.

Professionalism pretty much flies out of the window when I'm talking about characters and plots that leave me floored, jealousy can set in, too, lol, especially when I sit there thinking, I wish to God I'd written that. I fall hopelessly for certain tyes of characters, and if the story grips, pretty much all sense of time flies out the window.   

So this is just a thanks for the lovely team over at BIOB for hosting (putting up, lol) with me today.

For anyone interested, the interview is here, at Boys in our Books.

Coming Free on Audio: Antidote & Forgive Us Our Sins (Excerpts)

It's great to finally share this. Two FREE audio excerpts from the yet-to-be-released Don't 2 and Deliver Us 3 shared-world projects are scheduled for seperate release in December. They come from the lovely people in the Goodreads' BDSM Group and their BDSM Bedtime Story excerpts.

One audio excerpt will be taken from the gorgeously talented Ms. Kelling and her Forgive Us Our Sins novel (from her Deliver Us series). And the second will be taken from my sequel to Don't... Antidote.  

To coincide with each of these audio releases, on the day of the Forgive Us Our Sins' excerpt, Ms. Kelling will be interviewed by the lovely La Crimson Femme from the BDSM Group, where Ms. Kelling will hopefully be divulging a few secrets on the shared-world projects. On the release of my Antidote excerpt, La Crimson Femme will be interviewing Gray Raoul, where hopefully she'll gain an insight into just why Gray would be allowing anyone to share his world outside of Jack and Jan. No guarantees, no promises he'll answer, though.

Now, I've heard Sirly Eric, the lovely gent who's going to do the audio for both excerpts, and as biased as I'm going to be here, he's got one hell of a seductive purr to his voice *Shivers*. I'm looking forward to hearing how he's going to handle Gray, Jack, and Jan in a scene together. And having read Ms. Kelling's extract *whistles happily, 'cause Kelling is letting loose two of my favourite guys out of the Deliver Us series for this: Ben and Kyle (so tries to stop fangirling too)*, I'm really looking forward to hearing Forgive Us Our Sins on audio.

Once the audio has been released to the members of the BDSM Group, a link will then be made availble on both here and Ms. Kelling's blog.

Hopefully (and I'm crossing fingers, toes, and noses here), the audio and interviews will tie-in with the release of both Antidote and Forgive Us Our Sins this winter. Hopefully (I said hopefully a few times, right?).

Be great to have you along with us for eveything that's coming this December.

Don't... Deliver Us: Shared World Update (Timelines)

Gray, Jan, and Jack are off on a trip over to America in Ms. Kelling's next novel in her Deliver Us series (titled Forgive Us Our Sins). Just to offer a little insight into how our novels are going to share worlds, as I'll then be borrowing Gabe, Trace, and Dare from Ms. Kelling's work, we've compiled a timeine to show which book comes where (only the issues surrounding why still remains... hush-hush).

It's just a general update similar to Ms. Kelling's, only it differs slightly as it also incorporates a novella of mine that will fall under the shared-worlds project too. it also titles the third Don't novel in my series (albeit somewhat tentatively, and open to change).

First off, edits are well under way with Antidote, and hopefully it's on schedule for a winter release. Which will tie in beautifully with some of themes going on in Antidote.
