Meet Kelly Jacobs

Good morning fans!

Welcome to Tabooindeed for another guestpost.

I love bringing authors on that I, myself, am new to and this Thursday, I'm happy to have Kelly Jacobs on so we can learn a bit more about him.

From reading it sounds like he has a thing for Bill Kaulitz and Animaniacs.

Read on to find out more!

How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since the later part of my first semester of Kindergarten, but on a professional basis I’ve been writing since November of 2010.

What made you decide that you wanted to put yourself out there to publish?

My first book, Janie’s Heroes, which had yet to be released, focused on an issue I felt strongly about, equality in marriage, adoption and military service. I wrote in out of a Pabst Blue Ribbon fueled rage and decided in more sober conditions to get it published. The editors are still editing and since then I’ve released two books.

So... booze, anger, unemployment, bigotry = success.

Before you started, had you done any fanfiction? If so, what fandom?

Oh yeah. I’m a 90s kid so I did Mario, Animaniacs, even some Zelda and Daffy Duck. Heck, there are three Twilight jobs floating out there somewhere. ....they all float... (if you get that reference and didn’t saw the movie after reading the book, you are officially old. Go bask in your geriatric glory)

Are you in agreement that writing fanfiction is a great way to practice ones craft, why or why not?

Yes. You can do some easy smaller works, self-edited to hone your skills, and get lots of reviews from readers  who are looking for stuff to make you feel like crap over. My stuff was well received, fan-girls excluded, so it all came like smoked goat- rosy and delicious.

What is your favorite subgenre to write?

Ozark themed pulp fiction with lots of thick muscled farm boys in the woods. I’m a 1920s and 30s enthusiast, to the extent of shaving with a straight razor and making bacon at home, so that genre, when well done and accurate, is very relatable.

Is there one that you haven’t tried that you see yourself doing in the future?

One year I helped a friend build a tool shed for 500 bucks. So building a plantation-esque house on some land somewhere is a definite goal. I would also like to f*ck Bill Kaulitz. (photo below) We’ll see how life goes.

Would you ever write a hetero romance? Why or why not?

No, not because I am a hetrophobe, I’m not. Some of my best friends are hetro and I wish them all the best in the world, but I don’t have that view point and to try and put in a falsified view of a hetro relationship how just fiddle everything up.

What is your opinion on the “chicks with dicks” analogy? In your opinion, is it wrong for your males to be emotional or romantic?

I’m a guy, I’m romantic.

Your first published book?

“Frozen Prairie”, at eXtasy books. It’s heavily edited and didn’t come out as I wanted it, but editors will be editors. Or ‘The Dead Heart’ on Kindle. That one came out exactly how I wanted it. It’s been a while and dates are somewhat hard to recall.

I’m of the opinion that erotica doesn’t have to be real all the time to make a good story, what are your thoughts?

I’m sorry, the elephant next door needs to borrow a cup of emeralds, be right back.

Who are the authors that you look up to?

R.L. Stine. He made a mint writing fun stories he liked and the ones kids love to read. Without him the 90s generation would be illiterate.

What books are you reading at the moment? It’s okay to give a fellow author a plug!

I’m reading a DIY electric system guide based on the work of Nikola Tesla and the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx.

What are you working on now?

‘The Diary of Drakula; volume one’. A three part series, not strictly based on the Bram Stroker novel or on history, but inspired by them. The first part is a fiction diary of Vlad ‘Tepes’ Dracula, aka Vlad the impaler, composed by Dr. VanHelsing out of found manuscripts gathered at Vlad’s Transylvanian monetary.

I’ll be out in less than a month and has input from Dr. VanHelsing and goes in depth with all of life’s little quirks.

When creating your characters, do you have models in mind or are they totally fictional?

They are fictional but with historic or necessary traits of the moment tied into the personality. Only 
‘The Diary of Drakula’ series will have historic characters. But they’re all dead so if I offend anyone, they can kiss by booty.

If you write gay romance or erotica, just how descriptive are your in their sex scenes?

As the author, it’s hard to judge one’s own work. The readers seem to like it and I’ve gotten good reviews so far.

As a gay fiction writer, do you feel that the trend is changing where it is becoming more mainstream?

Yes, mostly due to the internet and social networking groups. It’s a good thing. Now women who like gay romance can finally openly enjoy the same sensation straight men have with lesbians kissing.

What is your opinion as to why publishers only want to group all manlove stories under erotica? Do you feel this is a hindrance to our genre?

Yes. No all gay relationships are about sex and drama. Consider all of the eldery couples who met in the 1960s and 70s who are only now getting married. They don’t really need that much sex, but they love each other none less.

Do you think it’s time for publishers to begin calling gay fiction/erotica what it is instead of m/m? Why or why not?

That would depend on the nature of the publisher. If it is mainstream like Kindle, then yes, it should be grouped with romance. But if it’s erotic-specific and makes it’s money off of gay erotica, then it’s okay to advertise man on man action.

Recently, a writer sabotaged her career by answering a bad review on a blog. How would you have handled this and do you think authors should answer their reviews?

They did? I would have smacked the f*ck out of somebody!

Not really. I’ve gotten one bad review, but that reviewer rated every book out of fifty as bad, so it didn’t get to me. I answer mine with thanks and positive virtual hugs. An author should answer if they wish.

Do you think women being a good portion of the amount of gay fiction writers detracts from the genre? Be honest and why or why not?

No. The human brain is almost universal in function as are emotions. The sensations and sex scenes are a bit off, but when you consider that love is love, it doesn’t matter.

What is the major difference between male and female writers?

Female writers seem to be more welcome in the publishing world. If a guy writes romance they are kind of laughed at.

I read a blog about gay fiction writer’s losing their imagination because they are writing the same subjects repeatedly, what are your thoughts? http//

It’s not a genre issue, it’s a writer issue. All writers of any field can get into slumps. They should venture out into a new field for a while. Even a quick break into fanfiction horror can be a pick-me up to the brain.

What is it about gay fiction and or romance that pleasures you to write it?

Money.... I mean LOVE! PUPPIES AND LOVE! I don’t make that much money :(

Name one celeb that you wish was gay and why?

Bill Kaulitz. I want to f*ck him so much!

Name two male celebs that you’d like to see in a hot make out session?

Bill Kaulitz and Andy Sixxx from Black Vail Brides.

Your favorite gay tv show or movie?

I don’t see them as being gay or not. With sex, there’s a difference, but with art, actions, motions, ideas, not so much.

Do you feel that celebs who are gay or bi should come out the closet?


Create a gay scene for your two gay stars in 5 sentences or less?

Nope. Ain’t nothin’ about me short.

For the men in your books, commando or underwear?


Favorite character in one of your books?

Michael, the three legged handicapped table. Kidding. I’d saw that Sam from The Dead Heart is my favorite so far.

The character you identify with?

All of them. Each character an author creates has some bit of that author’s personality within them because of the fact that they originated in the mind of the author.

Have you attended a pride parade? If so, where you inspired when doing so?

I live in the south, we don’t get those. :(

If you’ve watched gay porn, tell me your favorite movie and or star.

Skater Twinks with Brendan Killen.


Here is the link to the latest book “The Dead Heart",

Sam wasn't suspecting that he would he targeted as prey, he wasn't suspecting he would be lured into a web of soft touches and hard desire, and he wasn't expecting he would fall in love with a monster than meant to kill him.

In the small Texas town, 1956, Sam was bullied and harassed for being different until one night a stranger gave him a reason to live. They shared their inner demons and kept each other company until the dark night that Sam had to make a decision that would change his life.

He would be taken on an adventure to hell and heaven. From his first dance in the dark, to a brutal beating and to a night he would be lying in the mud, dying.

 A soft knock came to the window pane. Sam, full of restless energy, rose up and saw to the matter. The squirrels might have declared war again and by God he was ready for the little hairy bastards this time. They wouldn’t get the best of him like before.

Sam raised the roller blind and saw Tomas, leaning with his back to the wall of the house next door, his raised foot resting on the pressed board siding. Sam smiled and laid his hands on the window sill, he waved Tomas over.

Tomas shook his head and returned the motion, using one finger to ply Sam from the room.

Sam didn’t know what to do or think. He had never been coaxed out of his room in the middle of the night before, but then again in the last month he had been doing allot of things he had never done before, so he did it.

Sam opened the window, hoping no one would come asking for a favor in the middle of the night, and Tomas stepped to him.

“Come on,” Tomas whispered as he took Sam’s hand.

Tomas held on, and pulled the taut muscular body he craved to the darkness, where he could take his time with an added shield of protection. As they both stood in the prairie together and Sam tossed his arms around Tomas, Tomas pulled his new toy, a slim, muscular body, closer and welcomed the warmth against the cold night wind.

 A slow, passionate kiss passed between them as they shared their desire. Tomas could feel Sam’s heart pounding heavy as their bare chests touched. Tomas shifted slightly to one side, muscle gently stroked muscle, and a stout, hard shaft hit Tomas’s leg.

They had no lubricant and it would have taken too long anyway to make love in the the most intimate way, but intimacy wasn’t what they wanted.

 Tomas lower himself onto one knee and kneeled before his boyfriend. It was easy to feel the raw heat coming off of Sam, like a dog in heat.

Tomas pulled the front of Sam’s pants out and down, exposing his young manhood. His erection was long, thick, and uncut. Sam’s spine quivered and he softly gasped as Tom ran his tongue up the length of the rigid steel.

Tomas had no way of knowing it, but it was obvious to him that Sam was a virgin.


What a great interview. I had to chuckle about the repeated references to Bill Kaulitz as well as fanfic for animaniacs. See all of us have the things we love and you thought only I had certain things or celebrities I liked to gush over.

Fab interview and continued success Kelly!

Hope you enjoyed readers and please join me tomorrow for another episode of my free read Mi Familia which is growing in popularity every week. Then on Saturday, I'll be having fellow XOXO author Alison Cassata on the blog for an interview as well.

Thanks for dropping in!
