Interview & Giveaway with Xavier Axelson!

Xavier Axelson is author of several titles, to name a few; Lily, Dutch’s Boy, The Birches and Earthly Concerns.

Holly: Hello, Xavier! :) Would you mind telling us a little bit about yourself?

Xavier Axelson: I’m a writer and columnist living in Los Angeles.  My columns include interviews with counterculture celebrities, artisans, singers, writers, performance artists, politicians, and activists.  While my writing has been called, “raw, dirty, and absolutely beautiful,” I hope to push boundaries of what is expected in the M/M erotic genres.


Holly: When did you first become interested in writing?

Xavier Axelson: I first started writing in grade school and have not stopped since.

Holly: Can you tell us about your novella, Earthly Concerns?


Xavier Axelson: It was a peaceful night when Barrett and his daughter were driving home… then something happened.  Something sinister.

Now the only person Barrett can turn to for help is Anson, a man gifted with psychic abilities beyond reason. But Anson is also his ex-boyfriend, a man whose heart he’d already broken.
 
As Anson delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding Barrett’s accident, he begins to realize that he’s not only in a race against time, but in a battle against his own broken heart and the terrifying understanding that whatever has taken Barrett’s child is a force of evil beyond anything either man has ever encountered.


Holly: What was your inspiration for this novella and the two main characters Barrett and Anson?

Xavier Axelson: This novella was inspired by the idea that choices have consequences and I truly believe some of us always make the selfish decision, while others are capable of looking beyond themselves.  Barrett and Anson were inspired by the ideas of many men, they are opposites but have somehow managed to connect and then disconnect only to find one another again.  They are an interesting duo.

Holly: Do you think you may ever write a non Male/Male novel?

Xavier Axelson: Actually, I have many non M/M stories one complete horror/magical realism work just begging me attentions, so yes, my intention is to definitely write outside this genre.

Holly: Do you have any plans for more works in 2012?

Xavier Axelson: I’m in the middle of a WIP now that I thought was going to be a novella but is turning into a novel.  I also have a non M/M zombie story, an erotic M/M short story and a full length erotic/paranormal novel all out for submission so we’ll see what happens.  Plus my columns over at examiner.com are always blowing up.

Holly: Do you have anything you would like to say to your readers?

Xavier Axelson: Thank you for taking the journey with me, and get ready for more, more, more in 2012.  I’ve only just begun.

Random Quickies!

Holly: Morning, evening or night time writer?

Xavier Axelson: Morning

Holly: When writing, music or silence?

Xavier Axelson: Silence

Holly: Werewolves or Vampires?

Xavier Axelson: Werewolves

Holly: Where do you get your best ideas at?

Xavier Axelson: Usually when I least expect it.  But I do get ideas while I’m outside wandering the streets.

"Between love and loss, there is obligation…

It was a peaceful night when Barrett and his daughter were driving home… then something happened.  Something sinister.

Between shadow and light, there is uncertainty…

Now the only person Barrett can turn to for help is Anson, a man gifted with psychic abilities beyond reason. But Anson is also his ex-boyfriend, a man whose heart he’d already broken.

If you can see, you have to help.

As Anson delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding Barrett’s accident, he begins to realize that he’s not only in a race against time, but in a battle against his own broken heart and the terrifying understanding that whatever has taken Barrett’s child is a force of evil beyond anything either man has ever encountered.

And between decision and consequences, there are… Earthly Concerns"
Purchase: Seventh Window Publications






How could I just go over, and if I did, would I just be stumbling back into the pit of snakes I had just narrowly escaped the first time?  I thought this and a hundred other dangerous thoughts until I saw him begin to stand up. I waved him down, then went over and sat down.
Apparently, I thought the best course of action was to dive right in, avoid any further uncomfortable thoughts from belching up from the cesspool that I was creating in my skull.
“Tell me everything,” I blurted, trying to avoid looking into his eyes.
“You look good, all hot and cute,” he said, trying to maintain his smile, but the weight of his sadness was too intense. Instead, he managed a pained grimace.
“Thanks.” I wanted to say more, return the compliment, but found I couldn’t; he was a keen listener and would be able to detect any false sentiment I might throw out. I stared down at the menu and tried to ignore my heart, which had once again taken up its incessant thrumming.
“Thanks for coming,” he said.
I didn’t look up, but could feel him staring at me.
When the waitress came over, we ordered. Without the menu to stare at, I looked up and past him.
“Anson.” He said my name like it was some sort of invocation.
Did he believe he was dreaming?  I could only imagine the nightmare of not knowing where your child is and if she would ever come back.
“Tell me everything,” I repeated, my voice steady. I lowered my eyes and faced him; and seeing his sadness, I swallowed hard.
“It’s unreal,” he said, this time looking away from me, his eyes glistening. “I’m not sure I know what’s happened.”
The waitress arrived with two small cups of clear broth with some vegetables in them and refilled our waters.
“I’m sorry,” I said, my eyes riveted on him. I couldn’t believe I was sitting across from him in the same place I had met him once before; the day he wanted to return a t-shirt I had left at his place after one of our interludes.
Even now, looking beaten and tormented, the man somehow managed to provoke me in ways other men hadn’t. I saw him as beautiful and felt my stomach lurch. I looked at his brown eyes that I remembered looking gold in the sun, and his oddly handsome face. Not a traditionally good looking face, but handsome in a bookish, learned way. I felt my body begin to respond.
