A guest post and a giveaway - Snakeskin Boots by Xara X. Xanakas
I have no idea what possessed that woman to write my story. Seriously. Are wereboas all that interesting? I’m just a regular guy. Sure, I may shift into a ten-foot-long boa constrictor every once in a while, but that’s not a bad thing, is it? It’s not like I’m a wolf or anything. Hey! Sorry. Brad just tried to push me off the chair. (Don’t worry. He knows I’m kidding.)
Where was I? Oh yeah. Why anyone would want a story about me? Gods, I don’t know. I mean, what kind of person sees a picture of some guy’s junk and thinks of a wereboa. Or even eggplant. Or a wereboa craving … eggplant....
Xara here. Jeff is, well, distracted at the moment. I should have known better than to let him try to talk about how he came to be with Brad in the room. I had enough trouble writing their story when they kept hitting the sheets every chance they got. But, Brad’s smoking hot, and Jeff’s got a healthy sexual appetite. What can you do when characters have that kind of chemistry? Just roll with their romps.
Yes, it’s true. I saw a picture of a HUGE cock (we’re talking scary, where-do-you-think-you’re-putting-that! huge), in the NSFW Photos section of the M/M Romance group at Goodreads. My first thought sympathy for the guy, because someone would have to be able to unhinge their jaw to take it. And Jeff was born. Of course, his partner would have to have that terrifying piece of meat in his pants, otherwise Jeff’s snake qualities would be going to waste. Once Jeff unhinged, well....
Speaking of...oh, hi Brad. Welcome back. Where’s Jeff?
Hi. Thanks, Xara. Jeff’s, uh, resting now. He asked me to take over.
So, what was it like to be the subject of a book? I don’t know. Kind of weird, you know? Seeing how other people think of you, getting to read their deepest darkest thoughts. I got self-conscious during it, because there was a lot of talk about my, ahem, physical attributes. I was relieved to see Jeff knows the color of my eyes, because honestly? It seemed like I didn’t exist north of my belt buckle at times. I mean, she focused on what was in my pants. A lot. She was almost as obsessed with it as Jeff. Not that I’m complaining. I supposed I should be flattered. I could have been called “cucumber”. “Eggplant” has a nicer ring to it at least.
But getting to see the way Jeff wrestles around things in his brain was enlightening. Watching him become centered, and seeing him grow just made me love him that much more. I’m glad I get to be there for the rest of it. I guess I never stood a chance with her and Jeff around. I was a goner the minute I caught Jeff’s scent. It just took him a little longer to admit it. And I hear him stirring in the other room. Thank you for your time. Now, if you’ll excuse me.
Well, there you have it. Straight from the wolf’s mouth. Guess all I had to do was transcribe their thoughts. In fairness, Jeff is the one that kept thinking about the eggplant Brad’s smuggling in his jeans. Really. It was Jeff.
