Merry Christmas everyone. With just days to go before the big event it's a very exciting time, with lots of parties and drinks.

Just today I finished the final proofs of Body Language. The new e-book is due for publication on 27th January 2012. Like Bedtime Stories it will feature ten great new stories and one bonus tale Show Off, which has already featured as a free story on this blog and is still available here:


Check back in the New Year for more free stories and all the news on Body Language as the publication date approaches.   I hope to update the design of this blog very soon – I’m not the most gifted of techs but am getting there slowly.

As well as the new story collection I've been very busy on a brand new erotic novel, which will be unleashed in the summer. I'm really looking forward to a little bit of time off over Christmas and over indulging in all the good things like booze, food and sex, watching loads of television, readiong sopme great books and visiting family. I hope everyone else will be enjoying the festive period too. Grab someone special and drag them under the mistletoe.

Merry Christmas.

The KEVIN KILLIAN interview in full.

For anyone who may have missed the fantastic interview I had with Mr Kevin Killian, or can’t be bothered to trawl back through the posts to read the episodes, I’ve just uploaded the whole interview in a single document here:


A big thanks to Kevin for his encouragement and help with the book, for making it something I am immensely proud of.  What a great guy.
As 2011 begins to wind up, I have to admit it’s been a great year for me.  I’m thrilled that Bedtime Stories has found a market on Kindle, that people can finally read it and are enjoying it.  2012 is looking equally exciting, with a new collection of stories due in February and a brand new erotic novel planned for later in the year.

There’s also the possibility that my previous novels Words Made Flesh and The Chain may get an e-book release later in the year.  Watch this space for more news in the coming weeks.
Check back soon for more free story exclusives.  In the mean time have a very

Merry Christmas

Today I bring you the final part of my interview with Kevin Killian, in which we discuss the stories Daddy Fuller (my favourite in book) and Night Life, which some of may already have read as a bonus story on this blog.  I'm about to edit the interview into a single file which will avaialbe to read online and download in the next couple of days.

It’s been another busy week, writing a brand new story, while working on the manuscript of my next collection Body Language.  The new book is just about ready and will be available in e-book format from the end of January 2012.  Look out for more information and free promo stories very soon.

Story 10: Daddy Fuller
Kevin: Mr, Wolf, there's a lot of love in your book, mostly sexual in nature, of course, for it is porn, but there is more than a bit of romantic love and nowhere is that expressed so vividly as in the intergenerational romance of Daddy Fuller. Where do you see love fitting in to the more complicated and imprinted patterns of a man's sexual life?

Thom: That's a huge question. Wow. I can only really speak for myself but when I was young, love was everything. I didn't want to have sex with a man I wasn't totally in love with. That was certainly the case for my first sexual experiences. Then as I got a bit older, it was more about the sex - having lots of it. Not even knowing my partners name, let alone being in love with them. I spent a few years, like a lot of men do, getting that phase out of my system. And now, in my late 30's it feels like I've come full circle, with love and emotion being absolutely integral to sex again.

Kevin: Are we to imagine Daddy Fuller and Jimmy as a couple, or is this just a one time thing? I won't spoil the surprise ending, but Daddy Fuller allows his boy a much greater liberty than we usually see in this sort of older man/younger man story. Might be the biggest gasp of surprise in the book!

Thom: Again, this is just my opinion, a reader might take away something different, but the events in Daddy Fuller are the beginning of something wonderful for the characters. I definitely see them as a couple. It might not be the easiest of relationships, because they have such different life experiences, but they have a very strong emotional connection. Intergenerational porn stories tend to be very one dimensional, focusing on the eroticism of older man and boy. "Whose ya daddy?" kind of thing. In reality it’s a very complicated thing, so many issues surrounding maturity, experience, insecurity. I definitely wanted to incorporate some of that into my story - as well as getting in some great man/boy sex.

In one of my earlier books a fictional character comes to life and visits the author who created him. If any of the characters in Bedtime Stories wanted to cross over from fiction to reality and pay me a visit, I definitely want it to be Daddy Fuller.

Kevin: The story is unusual also in that it begins with a gruesome accident which seems to release in both man and boy a yearning for something pure and spiritual, as well as make them right horny. I have always admired your work for taking chances and you have never disappointed me.

Bonus Story: Night Life
Kevin: The steamy, sensual "Night Life" is a bonus story in more than one way. It is almost like two stories wrapped in one. In the first, set backstage at a gentlemen's strip club, the characters perform a charade of public sex, with the spice that it might come real at any given moment. Yet the management would frown on its employees actually getting it on with customers. The second story is private, intimate, with one stripper, Matt, getting drawn into the bed of a pair of cousins, Hungarian men, one older, one barely legal. You have convinced me now that Hungarians are the sexiest men on the planet, but Matt is pretty frisky himself and he's 100% English I suppose.

Thom: Matt is English, yeah. Actually I've never met any Hungarian men. This is one of those stories that came to life from a photo shoot in a porn mag with a Hungarian model. Often I can look at a man in a photograph and the image will act as a muse to my imagination. The photographs have nothing to do with what happens in the story; it was just a starting point - the image of a beautiful man that inspires the tale.

Kevin: I wonder if this started as two stories, or whether the first led organically to the second. You had me from the moment Matt met Joszef in the sleazy club toilet. Dare I ask if you've ever been stuffed from both ends like the boy in the story? Or are you too much a professional to say? Never mind, we interviewers have to "take chances" too.

Thom: It wasn't two short stories but an attempt to structure a short story in two acts, a bit like a play or a stage show. As you point out the first act is all centre stage and public, with the second act taking place backstage.

Without elaborating too much on your final question Kevin, the answer is - yes, of course. In reality, it's not as easy as we make it out to be either. Too much going on and like a lot of men, I'm not great multi-tasker.

Hi Guys.  Today I'm posting part four of my interview with Kevin Killian, in which we discuss the erotic thriller The Dark Room and Mighty Fine.  Both of which are availabe right now in


I'll be posting the final part of this interview later this week, together with a file of the complete interview from start to finish.  I also have another exclusive free story which will be online very soon.

Thanks to everyone who has already purchased a copy of the new book.  I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did with the writing.

Love Thom xxxx

Story 7:  The Dark Room

Kevin: “The Dark Room” is the longest and most technically accomplished story in the book. It’s actually a murder mystery and packs a wallop at the end, once the reader realizes that is actually happening underneath all that sex tension. Is this your answer
to Basic Instinct, Mr. Wolf? You’re a tricky bastard.

Thom:  As you know Basic Instinct is my all time favourite film and has inspired me more than any other.  The Dark Room was intended to be one of about six stories that would have made up a collection of erotic noir called Dazed, Beautiful and Bruised, very much in the style of Basic Instinct, Body Heat and The Fourth Man.  I thought it was a great idea and was really excited about the collection.  However, mainstream publishers get very nervous when porn writers touch on issues of sex, violence and murder.  I had problems with both my earlier books Words Made Flesh and The Chain.  The erotic thriller collection just wasn’t worth doing once the publishers imposed their “rules” upon what was and wasn’t allowed.  Thankfully, without a publisher telling me what to do now, I have more freedom in the content of my stories and my next book will be a very erotic thriller.

Kevin:  Strangled with a red jock-strap—what a way to go! How’d you come up with that one?

Thom:  I thought it was a great gay porn equivalent of the beautiful blonde strangled with her own silk stockings.  I had been watching a lot of Italian giallo movies, which feature some gloriously eroticised murders scenes, and they also fed into my thought processes when I was writing The Dark Room.  I love the imagery of the sexy young boy strangled in a dark room with his own jock strap.  It’s so over the top it’s ridiculous but it works wonderfully in the genre of an erotic thriller.  Sharon Stone has a great line in Basic Instinct 2, “People die in my novels all the time.  I have to think of new and interesting ways to kill them.”  That’s the fun part of being a writer.

Kevin:  I guess in every town there’s a club like Spurt and a guy like Lee Ottoman, the promiscuous pin-up boy who meets his end in “The Dark Room.”  Where did you first go for sex? A good looking man like you must have had an easy time of it.

Thom:  I hate to disappoint you but I must have been well into my mid 20s before I discovered clubs like Spurt and dark rooms.  I grew up in a tiny fishing village on the Northumberland coast and the nearest gay scene was 20 miles away in Newcastle.  I first started going to gay clubs in the early 1990s but it was actually very conservative then compared to clubs nowadays.  We still had really ancient obscenity laws in the UK at the time and clubs could be closed down if there was a hint of anything sexual going on.  There used to a place called The Gardens where guys who hadn’t managed to cop off in the clubs would go to afterwards for some very late night cruising.  It was a sleazy little park down by the river.  I hated it.  It was quite a dangerous place.  Guys were beaten up all the time and there were a couple of murders around the time I used to go there.  I had a friend who was addicted to the place and I would often end a night out, sitting on the steps down to The Gardens, waiting for him to finish off so we could share a taxi home.

Story 8: Too Far Gone

Kevin:  Porn comes with its own sets of cliches, which you always avoid so skillfully. In this tale the blowjob, often treated as a mere preliminary to anal action, assumes a sensational importance, it is by far the most described and elaborated part of the story. Our narrator craves the taste of Kyle’s cock in his mouth; he literally has to have it. Any thoughts?

Thom:  Yes, porn can be quite formulaic and rigid; defined top and bottom roles with a precise order of action – blow job, rimming, fucking.  That’s not a criticism.  Sometimes, as reader and a viewer, I want formulaic stuff.  The excitement comes from what you know is going to happen and the anticipation of it.  But sometimes it’s good to shake it up.  In reality I wouldn’t adhere to such strict rules.  Some days a blow job might be the main event, or even just a wank.  It shouldn’t always be about fucking. 

I’ve often been tempted to write a very realistic sex story, touching on the real practicalities of it, but have never yet cracked it.  In real life we’re not put off by an unexpected fart while pounding away, or the occasional mess upon withdrawal, but I don’t think anyone wants that in their porn.  Most people want glamour and perfection in erotica.  I prefer something that falls somewhere in between the two.

Kevin:  “Too Far Gone” takes place in a quiet hotel in an unnamed “urban village” I imagine somewhere in the US or Canada or England, but maybe it’s any place where men are on the prowl trying to find sexual release. We don’t know where they are, the name of the city, the name of the hotel, even the name of the speaker; is this to concentrate our attention on the raw sex between them? A seriously hot story—and not a twink in sight.

Thom:  Yes, the story takes place in anywheresville.  It could be America, or Europe or Australia.  It’s just two lonely men getting off together in a hotel.  It’s actually inspired by a hotel called the Orotava Palace in Tenerfie.  If anyone has ever been they would know it is exactly how I describe it and if you have a room on the back of the hotel, you look down directly onto the gay village, which on a weekend gets very busy indeed.  But I didn’t want to be that specific in the story.  This could be happening in any city on any night, anywhere.

Not a twink in sight?  Guilty again.  I might have to write some twink stories to readdress this balance.  The mature men are getting all the action.

Brief News Update

Whoever came up with the saying "sex sells" obviously hadn't tried to promote a collection of gay erotic fiction. I've been writing and publishing erotica for nearly 20 years. For most of that time it was with the backing of a mainstream publisher. Nothing prepared me for the steep, up hill slog of trying to promote an independent e-book. I actually thought I was well prepared for the task; I knew my market and how I wanted to get the word out to them; I had promotion material prepared, advertising artwork and freebies to give away. That seems somewhat naive now. What I wasn't prepared for was the utter negativity from webmasters and forum readers, and reviewers with a closed door policy to self publications. I wasn't trying to use a scatter gun approach with the sites I approached, they were all erotic story based websites, blogs and forums. Neither was I spaming the sites with unwanted ads. In every case I've obeyed forum rules and approached webmasters direct.

Publicising an erotic book isn't easy. Most of the avenues available to independent authors - local press, radio etc - are understandably out of the question. Is there a right way to do it? I'll keep trying and let you know.

In the meantime I'm almost finished the final stages of proof reading for my second collection Body Language, due for publication in February 2012. Maybe two books will be easier to publicise than one.

Look out for the next part of my interview with Kevin Killian this weekend.
