Taylor Saracen Reveals How (And Why) She Wrote Her New Book About Blake Mitchell, His Own Way Out

Posted July 24, 2018 by with 44 comments

IMG_6044Author Taylor Saracen and Blake Mitchell launched the book tour for Saracen’s new novel about Mitchell, His Own Way Out, in Las Vegas, Nevada last weekend, and Str8UpGayPorn was there to talk to the duo about the novel (and to get my own autographed copy of the book, of course). In the video below, Taylor explains her writing process and how she interviewed Blake about his life prior to writing the novel (which can be considered creative nonfiction). Then, they both share what they hope readers will take away from the book.

I’ve only just started reading it, but I’m enjoying getting to know more about who Blake was prior to becoming porn star Blake Mitchell. Some of his experiences (especially what he went through in high school) are very familiar to me, and Taylor deftly brings these experiences to the page so that everyone can relate, whether you’ve faced something similar or not.

His Own Way Out is the first novel from 13 Red Media’s (the parent company of Helix Studios) “Rise Up” series of adult novels. The next novel (which I’ve learned will be about another major Helix star, Kyle Ross), is due out this fall. His Own Way Out is available through Amazon and book stores nationwide, and the book tour calendar is here (Blake and Taylor will be in Arizona this weekend, and then Chicago next week).

AND:

The most recent Blake Mitchell scene from Helix was released tonight, and in it Blake fucks Leo Frost after taking questions from fans. Trailer (watch full scene here):

  • Mister Sterious

    This just in – Blake Mitchell did something!

  • Scrapple

    You mean she didn’t do this so she could get paid to spend intimate hours getting into Blake’s head and possibly sampling Mitchell’s meatstick at the end of the process? I’m disappointed.

    Kudos to them for trying to do it up big with an actual signing tour in actual bookstores. Fuck e-books. But paperback? Doesn’t a dick like Blake’s deserve a hardcover? And I fully expect a future Helix scene depicting one of Blake’s book signing events descending into a buttfucking event. The bottoms can read passages from the novel while Blake fucks them. He can autograph their faces and holes with cum. The scene writes itself.

    I can’t wait to not pre-order Kyle’s novel.

      Not getting laid makes ppl bitter hu? Jealous bitch😂😂😂 Don’t you realize that ppl reading what you wrote abt her will just laugh at you thinking how sad and pathetic you are😂 Hilarious

      • TK
      • McM.

        You can stop now. Blake Mitchell isn’t going to fuck you.

        • Hush-ins

          The folk technically “works” at Helix so…

      • Scrapple

        Please tell me English is your second language, because I seriously hope you aren’t naturally this stupid. Why don’t you grab a Rosetta Stone so you can properly decipher what I wrote, then point out the passages where I slammed Taylor. Also, be a dear and grab a dictionary (a real one, not an online version, since we’re keeping in line with the e-book thing) and look up the word “kudos.” After you’ve done all of that, feel free to return and share what you’ve learned with the class.

        • Francis Mastro

          Try to be a little more arrogant, this is not enough😅😅😅 Yes, English is my second language 🙃 I was referring to the first part. The reason why she wrote the book is because she’s an author and loves to write about life, people and feelings, and the purpose of this book is to be something soiological and empowering. You calling ME stupid is so funny, since all you think about is how much u think she wants to suck his dick or how “Blake’s dick deserves a hardcover”😅😅 SO SHALLOW & insulting. And you don’t see that, so who’s stupid now??😅😘

          • Scrapple

            Sweetie, your ESL teacher did you a massive disservice. I posited two theories. One, English wasn’t your first language and you mistook sarcasm for shade. Or two, you are stupid. I didn’t account for a third option, English being your second language and you being stupid. So let me make this real crystal clear for your dumb ass. I didn’t slam Taylor for writing the book. I made a joke about her motivations, because those would’ve been my motivations. And if you can’t see why I would mention a hardcover while talking about a porn model who is known for having a big, hard dick, don’t know what to tell you. You got all bent out of shape over nothing. Your lack of comprehension skills is not my problem. So let me hit you with this:

            and then be about my business. I’ve already lost brain cells engaging with your nonsense.

            I have to upvote for the gif of Liz and that royal cleavage.

          • nick

            If I ever win the lottery I will arrive at work the next day like she arrives in Rome

          • Scrapple

            I’d be coming through like Nettie from The Color Purple in full “Coming to America” mode. That or Doria Ragland at the royal wedding.

      • GayhawkAZ

        ^^Oh, this bitch again? You’re on every social media platform virtually kissing Helix’s ass and trying to be so clever when trashing people who dare to say something bad about Helix, Blake, Kyle, etc. As someone else on this thread said, none of them are going to fuck you, so face reality.

        • Francis Mastro

          😂 I’m proud of not being a petty prick like all the people that think it’s cool to insult people. I’m proud of defending my friends if someone hurts them😊 The fact that you think that I want to impress models or that I want something from them is total projection😅

          • GayhawkAZ

            You’re not their friend. You’re just a warm body that bumps up their Instagram and Twitter numbers. They don’t give a shit about you slavering to defend them or even if you’re some fatass sitting in his parents’ basement spending his Walmart salary on Helix scenes. 🤣🤣🤣

          • Francis Mastro

            😂😂😂
            You don’t even know me or how the people I call friends relate to me. But have fun being an asshole😂😂😘

          • GayhawkAZ

            I learned it from your tenuous grasp of English and your inability to get a fucking clue, sweetie. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d97a50671a357dba9febf8a8ba9d7824ab09516e296f31ed049a48ab5696fa5b.jpg

          • Francis Mastro

            I’m Italian🙃🙃🙃 And I know Englidh super well for being my second language. You’re still an asshole and I’m not😊 People actually like me, I’m not sure about you tbh. All this hate and bitterness is just so sad😊 You speding time trying to insult strangers online is just so sad. I spread joy and love and people love me back. Again, good luck being an asshole😘

    • peter

      Actually he could pick up a twink at a book signing. It would be a ‘novel’ way for Helix to introduce a new model.

      They should have a ‘package’ deal of book plus authentic Blake dildo with retractable foreskin.

  • Harvey Cobb

    Good for him, he is one of the few porn stars i would recognize in public.

    • Xzamilloh

      Right? in this day and age, online perfection is so generic. His thick ass prescription glasses set him apart in a good way.

      • McM.

        😀

      • Hereweare

        “Prescription”?

        • Xzamilloh

          I’m just assuming because of how thick they are

          • G. Lo

            The prescription is for the lenses, not the frames…

          • Xzamilloh

            Yeah no shit. I was talking about the lenses. I know how glasses work

          • von schlomo

            Yeah, totally…Blake, himself, said at least once before that he’s completely blind without them, or maybe contacts. I think in the context of Helix wanting to shoot at least one scene without him wearing glasses.

        • Maniacal Zebra

          From the looks of things, he’s pretty nearsighted, but he ain’t got nothing on me!

    • Checkedout

      He sort of looks like generic cute white guy. I don’t think I’d be able to pick him out.

  • TK

    From a review at Amazon:

    “His only traits were constantly being yelled about: his bisexuality, his abs, and his large penis. He managed to be a porn star and a cam star, but the book managed to not have a single sex scene that had any details to it.”

    What in the world made a reader of this book think there would be a detailed sex scene in an autobiographical’esque book?

    • Hush-ins

      Funny that one review there praises the plot while another one mentions the lack of it.

      • nick

        It all sounds a bit “50 shades of gay twilight”

  • Checkedout

    I guess I don’t understand why I should be interested in this kid?

    He’s a porn “star”. He’s really young. His scenes are OK. But a book?

    • Shawn

      It’s okay to not be the target demographic of something. It sounds like this will be helpful to baby/younger gays coming to terms with their sexuality.

      Plus the Blake fans.

      • Checkedout

        Very true.

    • nick

      There are Pokémon books, so…….

  • CamCam

    Is Blake even THAT famous to get a book like this? I’m kinda lost with this one. And this new scene of his sucks. I’m not feeling him not sucking dick in this or the last film he did. He’s losing his touch with me.

    • Hereweare

      Careful……I’ve had TWO anti-Blake comments deleted on this thread. Censorship is strong here.

      • CamCam

        Are you serious? Then that speaks volumes about this site if they do that. I hope that doesn’t happen but we will see what happens but that’s some bullshit

    • Hari Kalyan

      Yeah I’m a little lost on the book and tour too. Like literally who asked. But if Helix fans wanna spend their coins and snatch it up more power to him.

  • Hereweare

    Did my comment get ERASED?
    Must have been too on-point.
