Blog-Versary : Devon McCormack Author Post & Giveaway
Today we are excited to have Devon McCormack join us with his interesting and wonderfully named post for our 3 year blog anniversary. When you read the title just know that it’s irreverent and open and it suits us to a Tee at On Top Down Under. I love his take on what the Clipped Saga means to him as the author of these kinky action packed immortals and their partners in crime, so to speak.
From the moment I first read Clipped, I was hooked on the unusual and flipped universe of good and evil and religion. At some stage most of us who read/review a lot of books will say we’re tired of the same-old-same-old, we’re looking for something a bit different. When Clipped landed in our email folder as a review request, I knew I had to pick it up – a different spin on religion, paranormal beings, sword action and, as I discovered, mega cock-o-sauruses galore. I really enjoyed Clipped and now Bound. Clipped was so passionate, so vibrant, so different – as is Bound. Kinzer appealed, as did the OTT sado-masochistic relationship between Treycore and Kid, and Maggie got better and better.
One more thing I’d like to add. I don’t get particularly friendly with authors, I tend to keep some distance, but I found myself following Devon McCormack’s posts – and commenting – because they were witty, sometimes crazy and always full of joie de vivre, and they continue in that vein. I’ve since worked out that his posts are a reflection of who he is as a person. He is without a doubt one of the nicest, most genuine people I’ve stumbled across in the writing world. I also know that he will hate me for having said that. Good. Suffer, Devon 🙂 Now I’ve waffled… on to his fabulously-named author post.
A Perv’s Thoughts on Giant Immortal Schlongs, Itty Bitty Holes, and One Determined Bottom
Wild, violent, passionate sex.
That’s what I wanted to write about.
The moment I began writing the first book in what I planned to be an erotic fantasy series, I knew I wanted the sex to be painful. Incredibly painful. Not just the usual stings and burns that we experience during a good rough tussle, but intense, throbbing, mind-blowing pain. It’s not that I’m particularly aroused by pain during sex. Don’t get me wrong. A good rough fuck is always fun, but the sort of pain I wanted to express was about more than wish-fulfillment. It was about the passion behind the sex—the determination to have it even when it meant that one would have to endure extreme pain to achieve it. That’s what I wanted to capture. An intense lust that could war against the laws of nature.
Lightning in a bottle.
The world that this sex would take place in would be one where angels and demons mingle with mortals on Earth, taking part in an elaborate war between Heaven and Hell. In this world, angels have unnaturally large cocks and hypersexual impulses that exceed those of even the most sex-crazed humans. When I first encountered the characters of Treycore and Kid while I was writing the story, I felt their tension. From the moment they meet, Treycore and Kid have every reason to hate each other. The angel Treycore perceives Kid as nothing more than a lowly mortal who represents the species that destroyed the peace of Heaven, where Treycore lived as one of God’s most beautiful and prized creations. Also, humans smell particularly foul to immortals, and Kid smells worse to Treycore than any human he’s ever encountered. But I’ll just let Treycore speak for himself about how much he despises Kid:
“You’re nothing! I carry divine authority. You’re lower than the lowest fallen. I’m older than the earth. The trees in this jungle are older than you. I can live forever. You have to die. Have you seen me? Have you seen my body’s perfection? That’s my birthright. Compare it to your disgusting figure, covered in the imperfections of mortality. The scars of your pathetic, disgusting life.”
What an ass, right? Since he acts like an asshole around Kid, Kid doesn’t like him either and is quick to challenge his authority. Having been imprisoned and forced to work as a sex slave, he doesn’t like taking orders from anyone, and Treycore is determined to have his way, as he was used to having it when he was revered and adored in Heaven. Despite the disdain they feel for each other, they can’t help but feel a powerful lust building between them—a sexual chemistry unlike anything either of them has ever experienced before. So powerful that even when Kid sees Treycore’s two foot dick, he knows he has to have that inside him.
He knew it wouldn’t be physically possible—or at least, it might be the most unbearable experience of his life, but he wanted Treycore inside him. He wanted him to swell in his ass. He wanted to scream while Treycore forced it in him harder and harder, not giving him a moment to recover. He wanted Treycore to explode inside of him so his whipped cream load spewed out through the space between his asshole and Treycore’s pulsating dick.
Even though Treycore knows how dangerous fucking Kid could be, he can’t deny his own desire to be inside of him. However, Kid doesn’t just want the pain of that massive dick trying to ram into his tiny, human hole (which can really only get so far since it’s so enormous). He wants Treycore to hurt him. To choke him. To bring him to the brink of losing consciousness before assuring him that, despite his sadistic desires, he will never let things go too far. And while Kid senses that Treycore doesn’t want to seriously injure him, at times he fears Treycore won’t know his own strength and may accidentally take things too far. Even then, Kid is willing to endure it, because that’s how much he wants to fuck Treycore. In one encounter, while Treycore is strangling Kid with the vine of a tree, Kid is ready to die if that’s what he has to do to keep fucking Treycore.
The back of Kid’s skull felt like it was about to pop off, and Kid knew he didn’t have but a few moments of consciousness left. If this was how he was going to die, he was satisfied.
That’s how much Kid wants to experience the pain that Treycore has to offer.
Though they still don’t particularly care for each other, there’s a certain trust that grows with each moment where they see that they’re willing to explore dangerous and painful sexual encounters together, each satisfying this deep hunger they have for one another, but also building a strong connection between them.
Through Treycore and Kid, I was free to explore lust, passion, sadism, and masochism in ways I’d never considered previously. Their violence and passion is exactly what I was looking for going into the series, and it didn’t disappoint. And gradually, I discovered that it was through this twisted sexual exploration that they find something much more profound, something deeper for each other that is far beyond their lust.
Lust, hunger, and determination combine to create a steamy epic in The Clipped Saga, where angels, demons, and humans fuck, not just to fuck, but because the passions that stir within them are beyond their control, and sometimes even dangerous for them to pursue. So if you’re looking for passion. If you’re looking for couples that couldn’t stop fucking if they wanted to, you need to see the guys in these books in action. Treycore and Kid are just one of the many couples that journey through the series, but these books are about setting fire to hearts and loins and taking the reader on an adventure across the realms while exploring the depths of these characters’ hunger for one another. For those who haven’t already seen Treycore and Kid in action, I highly recommend that you pick up a copy of Clipped, the first part in The Clipped Saga, where Treycore and Kid first meet. The sequel, Bound, just dropped last month, and is a continuation of their adventures…along with their friends who have their own violent sexual experiences to explore.
