Horatio Slice Guitar Slayer of the Universe

Book Launch Blog Tour

Today I am very excited to be welcoming, Oleander Plume to HornyGeekGirl as part of the book launch blog tour for Horatio Slice: Guitar Slayer of the Universe. She is going to be sharing with us the process of designing the graphics for her characters. Oleander wrote one of my favourite anthologies, so I was thrilled to be asked to be part of this tour. Without further ado I will pass you over to Oleander…

Horatio Slice is NOT dead.

Gunner Wilkes knows a secret. Heartthrob rock star Horatio Slice is not dead. Sure, Gunner may turn heads with his big brain, good looks, and gym-built body, but his mind is on one thing only: returning his all-time favorite rocker and secret fanboy crush to Earth. 

Yes, there are VAMPIRE PIRATES

Fame and stardom were starting to wear thin for Horatio Slice, but when he was sucked through a magical portal while on stage at Madison Square Garden into a jail cell in a strange dimension called Merona, his confusion quickly cleared upon meeting his sexy, dark-haired cellmate, a vampire pirate named Snake Vinter, who filled Horatio in about life in the universe, jumping from dimension to dimension, and craftily avoiding the wrath of gnarly-mask-wearing leather queen King Meridian—a guy nobody wants to cross. 

The metal ship is named Frances.

And on Snake’s metal ship live eight identical blond Humerians, who proudly display their cocks and assholes in carefully crafted trousers, as well as a wild assortment of untamable, cock-hungry travelers and stowaways. But someone has hacked into Frances’ mainframe, demanding that Snake and crew deliver Horatio Slice to King Meridian, or feel his wrath.

All the zany magical comedy of Mel Brooks, an adventure not dissimilar to Indiana Jones meets Barbarella, and men, men, horny men, of all shapes and sizes, Horatio Slice, Guitar Slayer of the Universe is wild, fun, pornographic fiction for anyone who loves the masculine, the feminine, and all identities in between. Even more so, it’s for cravers—for aficionados—of big, hard, pounding cock, and anyone who can handle laughs that won’t stop coming.

Designing Horatio Slice

When Jacob Louder sent me the rough draft of the book cover, I fell in love. The artwork he chose to represent Horatio was an uncanny likeness of the person who had before only existed in my head.

It also reminded me of my favorite computer game, The Sims.

I started playing The Sims when the first version came out. A friend let me borrow her copy and after a week, I gave it back to her and said, “For the love of everything, keep this game away from me, it’s taking over my life!”

A few years later, I acquired The Sims 2, and the addiction started all over again, until I purchased a new laptop and discovered the game wouldn’t work with Windows 10. I thought my Sims playing days were over, until I tried The Sims 4.

And now my life is over.

Sure, the game play isn’t as enjoyable as the Sims 2, but the graphics are amazing. The best part about this new version, however, is the updated Create A Sim. With it, you can create unique characters with ease since the interface allows you to tweak even the smallest details.

Jake’s book cover gave me ideas. Crazy ideas. What if I created Sims versions of all the characters in the book? What if I then captured these images and used them for promotion, or swag, or my own personal prurient interests? Yes, yes, YES!

While writing the book, I found photos of models who closely resembled the men in my head. I used these photos to inspire my Sims dudes.

Here’s Horatio:

And, Gunner (who I think is exceptionally adorable):

Before getting them right, I had to download a lot of custom content, especially hair. Gunner, being a huge Horatio fan, wears his hair in a similar style to Horatio, so I used the same hair for both. Creating Snake was even harder. How would I give him his famous metallic silver eyes? Once again, custom content to the rescue. Don’t stare at him too long, he’ll hypnotize you into doing all sorts of things:

Onto Sugar. Finding hair and his pretty green eyes was easy. But what about his gun? Well, let me tell you, those custom content geniuses can make anything!

Once I created the characters, getting decent shots of them in-game proved challenging. I pored over many a DIY tutorial on YouTube and practiced until I got them right. Besides hair, eyes, and skin tones, those CC geniuses create things called “pose packs” which make your characters behave. I even found Horatio a guitar!

There are even pose packs for kissing. And beyond. How did I get shots like this one?

Heh heh. That’s for me to know and you to…nah, I’ll tell you, but you’ll have to wait until August 1st, when I’ll reveal my other secrets to Tabitha Rayne. In the meantime, if you want to read the scene that inspired this:

At Last – Gay Erotica

I’d been watching Gray for months, dreaming about him; imagining what I’d like him to be doing, how he’d feel, his taste, his scent, and now I couldn’t believe he was here. I’d been having a drink after work, hoping I might see him, not that I’d ever manage to talk to him but just seeing him could make my day. I didn’t see him but decided to have one more drink before going home. I’d just ordered when he’d stepped up behind me at the bar, pressing close as he handed the barmen a twenty saying, “Make it two.” My heart going wild I’d turned smiling and I’d felt him pressing into my hip.

When we’d left the bar, he’d turned to me “You live near by, don’t you?” I nodded, not trusting my voice. He’d taken my hand, “lead the way.” When we got to the door of my building I fumbled for my keys and he released my hand. He cupped my chin, tilting it so I was looking him in the eye. He brushed his thumb over my lips before kissing me; a soft gentle kiss that surprised me. As he pulled back I found myself following, leaning into him.
He smiled. “Do you want me to come in?”
“Yes, I do.” My voice cracked on the last word, and I felt colour rush to my face. I turned away trying to unlock the door but my key no longer seemed to fit the lock. He chuckled, a deep throaty sound that caused my cock to twitch, and his hand covered mine, guiding the key in and turning it.

The door opened, and leaving my keys dangling from the lock I stumbled through. He removed them and let the door close, while I hit the button for the elevator. My heart was beating so loudly I was amazed the whole building couldn’t hear it. The doors opened and I stepped in, turning to look at him. I remembered the way he’d kissed me; the softness of his lips, the way he’d tasted of the whiskey he’d drunk, how his chin was so smooth there’d been almost no friction. I reached up running a finger down his jaw line, and along the curve of his chin, I vaguely wondered if he’d shaved before leaving the office. He caught my hand, kissing the palm, then running the tip of his tongue along my index finger. He let it slip into his mouth, sucking it. His eyes met mine, and I felt my cock twitch again.
