Blue Skies and Palm Trees

My partner is retiring at the end of the summer and......we're going to be moving to Florida!  I'm excited for the big change.  I'm sure that there will be plenty of bottoms to look at down there!

Appreciation



I was walking the dog to go get coffee a couple of days ago and I saw that someone wrote (painted?  I'm not sure how it was written on the brick--maybe it's chalk?  hopefully) this on the side of a building near the café.  I'm not a proponent of people defacing property but this graffiti made me chuckle as you can imagine.

Thanks to those of you who've enjoyed the first book, "Maximum Buns"!

If you haven't gotten it yet, get it!  It's now available through Barnes and Noble as well as Smashwords and (soon) other outlets as well.  "Maximum Buns" has a page on Goodreads now too.  As I mentioned in another post, this whole e-publishing thing is new to me and I'll try to make notes and keep up-to-date as much as possible as the books become available via different platforms for every kind of electronic device imaginable.

The second e-book coming up, "Optimum Buns", will be here before you know it and will be even better than the first book.  The new secondary character, Vince, is.....just as boner-inducing as Max is.  They're different from each other but a lot of you guys might end up liking him just as much (possibly more?) than the Max character.  I just have to make sure that Vince doesn't hijack the Buns books entirely.  Max and Vince will be the central, main characters of the books and will be sharing the stage (literally) as the series goes along.  Two different types of guys with very different perspectives and personalities.  I have an outline as to where the storylines will be heading and I'm really liking the directions that Mr. Gregg, Kara, Carlo, Jeff, and (the thoroughly pitiful as you will see) Evan are going towards.  Mr. Gregg is surprisingly vulnerable and Kara will explain herself more as the series moves forward (I respect her character a lot).

I will be updating the Main Characters page a little bit here and there from time to time, especially as more of the Buns series books are released.

A sneak peek at the cover for the second book, "Optimum Buns" is here and I really love it!


A very special "thank you" to S.O. for doing the illustrations for this series.  He was also generous enough to do a profile illustration of me (we're old friends) for my Smashwords page and it gets to the point I think!


I hope to keep him onboard until the last book so that the cover styles stay consistent.  I think that the tone of his work meshes perfectly with the Max stories!  If I bribe him with a Thai food dinner once or twice a month, I have a feeling that he won't vanish on me.  Again, thank you, S.O. for contributing your talent to the book covers.

I was hoping to have "Optimum Buns" available by the end of July but, let's face it, August is a lot more realistic.

Good, Dirty Fun

The Buns stories are simply written to be enjoyed.  They're only fictional, erotic dream tales and they're meant to be good, dirty, naughty fun!

Don't take them too seriously.  They're too ridiculous to be taken seriously.

Some of the rougher moments in the stories are included because the narratives are kinky fantasies:  not realities nor recommendations.  Reality exists in its own space and fantasy exists in its own space.  There must be room for both reality and fantasy.....and the ability to differentiate between those two realms.  Tom of Finland would agree with me and the Marquis de Sade would agree as well!  But, I have to admit, I'll never go as far down the routes that the Marquis went down.  I feel comfortable staying within certain confines of storytelling!  Yikes! 


Tom of Finland is a huge influence on the Max stories.


I don't see the full stories--the Max stories as novellas--to be a contradiction to the quick, bite-sized nature of raunchy erotica.  If anything, I believe that they compliment each other.  Fleshing-out the story backgrounds and characters a bit is meant to illuminate what the characters are going through and to get to the heart of the point of the Max/Buns stories.


The Max/Buns stories are about:


1.) people coping with their bodies and sexualities


2.) characters coming to terms with their fantasies and the fantasies of others


3.) adults learning how to navigate through the complexities of erotic relationships with each other


So, yes, the Max/Buns stories are indulgent, absurdist, silly, erotic stories...…..but they're about other, more serious things than homoerotic ass fetishization.  Yet I want to make sure that the books stay thoroughly entertaining, humorous, and enticing and not allow the subversive, serious aspects of the narratives to be heavy-handed.


Fun is #1.

Main Characters

main characters in the Buns series:

Max:  21-years-old.  Extremely hot.  Blonde, tan, blue-eyed, all-American hunk.  Looks like a model out of an Abercrombie and Fitch advertisement.  Perfect face, 6"1', muscular, fit jock.  Huge, juicy, plump bubble ass that's out of this world and gets him a ton of attention from both men and women.  Married young to his wife Kara but can be bi-curious.  Has a very serious submissive side.  Works as a personal trainer, goes to college part-time, and also works at a North Carolina amusement park--Fantasy Point--where he plays a superhero called Captain Fantasy.  Nice guy but has an ego.  Not dumb but not too bright either.  A regular, cocky, young guy wrapped in the body of a sex god.


Vince:  23-years-old.  Insanely good-looking and knows it.  Dark brown hair, pale skin, bright green eyes, gorgeous face.  Franco-Italian ancestry.  Rich brat with an insufferable ego and a bad attitude.  Dad is a wealthy playboy, mom used to be a swimsuit pinup.  Both parents are pretty irresponsible which explains a lot of Vince's bad attitude.  5'9" in height, sexy-fit body, tattoos.  Despite his trim waist, he's got a bulbous, round, luscious pair of butt cheeks that bulge out behind him.  He used to be part of a singing group that had a little bit of popularity for a while a few years back, but the talent just wasn't there.  A player, a partier, and a fuckboy.  Leans towards the ladies but secretly questions himself.  Now works as a performer at Fantasy Point and has a manager named Evan.  He uses his glorious ass for attention and to get what he wants.  Manipulative.

Mr. Gregg:  the ultra-wealthy, powerful, intense 50-something CEO of Fantasy Point Amusement Park.  Married to a woman, has daughters, but is secretly gay.  His father was Irish, his mother was African-American.  Handsome man, toned body, piercing eyes, salt-and-pepper hair, fantastic dresser.  Tough and intimidating.

Jenny:  Mr. Gregg's secretary.  Eccentric, fashionable, soft-spoken, and kind.  Full-figured, early 40's, cute, fun, and magnetic.

Carlo:  #1 engineer and creative director at Fantasy Point Amusement Park.  Extremely creative, innovative, and smart.  Mr. Gregg realizes how irreplaceable Carlo is so he makes sure that he's well-paid.  Tall, attractive, swarthy, jolly, burly, masculine, single "Daddy Bear" as he's described by all of his friends.  Gay.  53-years-old but looks younger due to a healthy lifestyle and sharp clothing.  He puts his technical expertise to use at home by creating machinery built for erotic purposes.....

Getting It Covered

This is my first time putting out a full book and it's been a ride so far.

Every book, even if it's an e-book, has to have a cover design and my cover artist decided to not do the project yesterday because they're not completely comfortable with the subject matter.  It was going to be photo composites using some male erotica images but, to be honest with you, I didn't love the end result and the artist wasn't thrilled about doing this kind of kink material anyway.  That happens sometimes with creative projects and that's OK.

I'm going to ask a friend of mine who does minimalist illustrations if he will hop on this last-minute because I know that he's dependable, he wants to do Max-inspired images, and he loves the Max storylines.  A fragment of his minimalist work is actually at the top of my tumblr page.  His work is mainly simple shapes and colors presenting familiar objects, interacting with your imagination, allowing you to flesh out the rest.  His work is very light, not oppressive.  It could be cool if the book cover ends up looking different from what I had anticipated.  There's nothing wrong with being different.

This is going to push the book release back a week or so until he's done with the illustration work.
  The first Max book is going to be online very soon, available for purchase, but we need some more days to make that happen.  Patience, please.  Thanks for reading, everybody!  There's going to be A LOT of Max and friends happening and I appreciate the interest and enthusiasm.  The best is yet to cum!  Oops, I meant "come".  Easy mistake.  😉

what's coming up

I know that the e-books will be a series of 10 e-books--10 total--all about our bubble-butted hero Max and the characters surrounding him.

Lots of erotic, super-kinky fun.  Humorous, filthy, and satisfying.

The e-books are definite but I have no idea as to whether or not there will be paper editions.  Because the Max stories are so dirty, I'm not sure that it would make sense to turn them into paper books.  Do you really want your friends or family to see homoerotic paperback books lying around called "Maximum Buns", "Incredible Buns", etc.?  Probably not.  Maybe e-books are the perfect format for these stories.....but I don't know.  If a lot of people want paper versions of the Max stories, I'll consider it but I have no idea as to whether or not that would make sense for this specific type of indie publishing.  Big question mark on that one.

You won't have to read them all in order but it would probably help so that the characters' backstories are fully intact.  But it's not required.  I want all the erotic e-books to stand up on their own and be enjoyable for themselves, as is.

The first e-book will be called "Maximum Buns: Max Stories I" because the main character is Max and because one of the people in his town names a bakery Maximum Buns in honor the dude's hot ass.  The 2nd book will be called "Quality Buns: Max Stories II", etc. and so on.  All the books will keep a title theme with "Buns" as part of the title.

I removed some stories from this blog so that I can rework some of the narrative hooks in ways that are improved for the overall story arc throughout the books.  Some characters, and some moments, are being chopped out and there's much more being added in.  Everything is going to feel very new.

New characters, new settings, new freaky situations.  Max stays as the main character, of course, and he will be joined by some fresh characters.  All of the Max stories that are currently available on this blog are still canon to the overall narrative arc.  They can be slipped in throughout within the rest of the stories in any way you choose, without disrupting the main story arc, and they're fine the way that they are.  They'll stay up here as supplemental stories and as samples of what the e-books are like.

One of the new main characters will be of particular interest to those of you who love the Max stories that I've written over the past few years......

Mr. Gregg, Max's stern boss, decides to add another bubble-butted hunk to the payroll alongside Max.  This new character is named Vince (I admit that he's inspired by a few real-life people).  The character is described this way:

Vince:  23-years-old.  Insanely good-looking and he knows it.  Dark brown hair, pale skin, bright green eyes, gorgeous face.  Franco-Italian ancestry.  Rich brat with an insufferable ego and a bad attitude.  Dad is a wealthy playboy, mom used to be a swimsuit pinup.  Both parents are pretty irresponsible which explains a lot of Vince's bad attitude.  5'9" in height, sexy-fit body, tattoos.  Despite his trim waist, he's got a bulbous, round, luscious pair of butt cheeks that bulge out behind him.  He used to be part of a singing group that had a little bit of popularity for a while a few years back, but the talent just wasn't there.  A player, a partier, and a fuckboy.  Leans towards the ladies but secretly questions himself.  Slightly desperate for employment, Vince now works as a performer at Fantasy Point and has a manager named Evan.

So there will be plenty of Max's continuing adventures as well as some intense experiences coming up for Vince as well.

I'll add a character guide to this blog very soon that will describe Max, Vince, Mr. Gregg, and some of the other reoccurring characters.

I plan to have the first Max e-book, "Maximum Buns: Max Stories I" available online before the end of the month.
