Blog-versary: Candi Kay Author Post, Turning the North Pole on its Elf + Giveaway + Goodie Bag
*** Congrats to DRE who won the giveaway! Thank you to everyone who stopped by and to Candi Kay for the post and giveaway! ***
To help celebrate On Top Down Under’s 4th year and the November 1st release of Blake the Rogue Reindeer & His Cocky Human, I’ll be giving away a few goodies from the Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer world. The giveaway details are at the bottom of this post.
It all starts with a silly dare.
Of course, there wouldn’t be a dare if I wasn’t sloshed on Peppermint Whiskey. Here I am falling down drunk when Master Elf Jason, a big bully, dares me to sneak inside the house of the Chief Reindeer and take a photo of his cock while he’s sleeping. Everyone knows the reindeer are all light sleepers and can kick your ass from here to Candy Cane Valley, twenty miles away. Sneaking anywhere at the North Pole is risky when you’re sober. A sober elf is a klutz on a good day. A tipsy elf is an accident waiting to happen.
Willy just wanted to put his nine-incher to use. Give the guy, um, elf, a nip or twelve of Peppermint Whiskey and he was willing to do any guy available, as long as he got his little elfy jollies. That is, until he hooked up with the baddest reindeer in existence, who made it known that the nine-incher belonged to only him from then on out. 🙂
Everything you’ve seen and heard about the North Pole your whole lives isn’t true. Really! Santa Claus isn’t this big, jolly man who loves children. His wife is the total opposite of the little old lady who bakes sugar cookies. They look like your typical thirty-somethings. It was Santa himself who spread the rumor that they were old and jolly. This was done so they wouldn’t be recognized outside of the North Pole during the off-season.
The elves, while short, don’t have pointy ears or squeaky voices. That was also Santa’s doing. He got angry when the elves went on strike over harsh working conditions so he spread the rumor describing them as the little men you see in fairy tales. Unfortunately, once that first story was written it stuck.
The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into tall and beautiful beings in human form. They’re a horny lot and don’t care who knows it.
All the active elves and reindeer are gay males. You’re thinking, “Uh huh, yeah right.” It’s true. It wasn’t always like that. Everything changed when Santa Claus caught his little wifey getting busy with one of the elves in the workshop many years ago. Santa figured that if all future active helpers were into men only he’d not have to worry about his Ho! Ho! Ho! of a wife hooking up with any of them. Pfft! There are thousands of straight guys in the North Pole and surrounding areas. Just sayin’. 🙂
Everyone in the North Pole has a destined mate. Willy and Randy were destined to come together, though an elf and reindeer had never done so before. In Evan the Virgin Reindeer & His Sexy Buck it was Evan and Derek’s turn. They had to go through hell to finally get together. A rogue reindeer, Blake Simpson, did everything in his power to not only destroy Evan, but to destroy Christmas as well. While the blame for Blake’s behavior could be placed on the one calling the shots, he had other issues that this person exploited.
In Blake the Rogue Reindeer & His Cocky Human Reindeer Simpson is being given a chance to redeem himself for his past bad deeds. All he has to do is babysit a special visitor during the two weeks leading up to Christmas. Outsiders have never been allowed inside the North Pole before so this is a special circumstance. For some reason Santa is running scared so he invited this man – a human – to visit so he can keep an eye on him during the busiest time of the year. Blake Simpson has never been fond of those outside the reindeer race but a deal is a deal. He’ll babysit the guy for a couple of weeks and then hopefully get on with his life without the drugs that had clouded his brain for so many years.
All is fine and good, right? Well, not quite. Blake and the human have met before in the United States and their parting didn’t end well. But alas, the magic of the North Pole isn’t confined to its boundaries and sometimes fate has a sense of humor. 🙂
When I wrote Evan the Virgin Reindeer & His Sexy Buck Blake wasn’t written to have his own story someday. Honestly, I hated him. He was supposed to stay wherever Santa Claus shipped him last year, likely to never be seen or heard from again. That changed when fellow author and friend Devon McCormack read the story and loved the guy. Apparently Blake was just misunderstood and needed love and guidance. Personally, I think Devon just has a bad boy kink. *grin* He did get me thinking, and not long after, Blake’s story was born. Not only did Devon come up with the idea for the story, but I based Seth Grant (aka the human) on him. I took a lot of liberties with the physical description and other things but if you know Devon at all you should recognize him in the cocky human. Hopefully he won’t strangle me. 🙂 If he does, just remember… it was his idea!
Each story in the series has a message. In ‘Willy’ it’s love is love, regardless of genders or species. In ‘Evan’ it’s adult bullying. And finally, in ‘Blake’ it’s redemption and forgiveness.
To help celebrate On Top Down Under’s 4th anniversary and the upcoming release of Blake the Rogue Reindeer & His Cocky Human, I have goodies to give away to one person who comments on this post. The giveaway will run from October 24th through October 31st, so make sure you comment on this post for a chance to win! The winner will be chosen at random at midnight (U.S.) on the 31st and notified via email the next day.
This giveaway is open to everyone – in the U.S. and internationally. The winner will be given the choice of signed paperbacks or e-book copies of the first two books in the series. If e-books are chosen, the other swag will still be sent if the winner is interested. Note that because this giveaway is open to international entries, enough time must be allowed for delivery. In my experience, it usually takes around 3 weeks, depending on where the package is being shipped.
Good luck to all who enter and congrats to On Top Down Under Book Reviews on 4 great years!
Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer
The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs. Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. The elves, while short, aren’t pointy-eared tiny men with squeaky voices. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form. Feared by all, the reindeer keep to themselves and only associate with their own. Randy the Chief Reindeer is the most feared of all. The largest of the pack at six-five, Santa’s Village breathes a sigh of relief when he takes off on his Harley to parts unknown during the off-season.
Elf Willy is all about kink and will do almost anyone and everyone. The one he wants most is out of his league – Randy the Chief Reindeer. While drunk on Peppermint Whiskey, Willy is dared by the Master Elf to sneak onto Randy’s property to take a compromising photo. Getting caught is a given, as the Chief Reindeer values his privacy above all else. Does Randy kick Willy’s elfy self all the way to Tinsel Town? Or does he mete out a more appropriate punishment for the kinky elf?
Evan the Virgin Reindeer & His Sexy Buck
The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. Far from it, actually. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form and are respected by all.
Reindeer Evan is brand new to Santa’s sleigh. When two reindeer are fired for voicing objections over the Chief Reindeer’s elf, Evan is offered a chance to fulfill his lifelong dream and make his parents proud. Unfortunately his sworn enemy is hired at the same time. When the bullying reindeer takes things too far, Reindeer Derek swoops in and saves Evan from certain death. It’s embarrassing enough for the rookie to have to be rescued, but he’s also still a virgin. Being a virgin reindeer at twenty-one is unheard of in the North Pole, but Derek is more than eager to help him with that particular problem. When things take a violent turn for both the elves and the reindeer, everyone must work together in hopes of saving Christmas. In the midst of it all, two reindeer might just find love along the way.
Blake the Rogue Reindeer & His Cocky Human
The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs. Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. Far from it, actually. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form and are respected by all.
Except Reindeer Blake Simpson, that is. Sure, he’s beautiful like the others, but all respect for him flew off with the snowflakes last Christmas. When the Chief Reindeer offers him a chance to redeem himself he jumps on it without hesitation. All he has to do is keep a special visitor occupied leading up to the busiest night of the year.
For the first time in history, an outsider will be allowed in the North Pole. Not just any outsider, but a human and Blake Simpson has never been fond of them. But a deal is a deal. He’ll babysit the man and then get on with his life, now free of what caused him to self-destruct last year. When he meets Seth Grant sparks fly, and not just the good kind. Not only is he a human but he’s a cocky one who Blake has met before.
Sometimes the magic of the North Pole has a sense of humor. Could the rogue reindeer and cocky human actually be meant for each other? Or will they be over before they start as secrets of Blake’s past are revealed?
