TBL2′s big blog tour (Day Eight) with Tawania

caught-vbtbanner

This week, Amber and Lucy are going on a virtual tour of the internet, courtesy of CBLS Promotions who are organising the entire shindig. Thanks guys!

Today’s blog stop is Wicked Readings

Please stop by and say hello to Tawania, who has been kind enough to play host for today.  You may see something else you like.

Gotta go before Amber and Lucy get themselves into trouble.

Oops…too late!

Waaay too late. I think I may have to call security.  Aaaaand so the story begins! 😉

The call has already been made, by the sound of things.

Please note that that today’s excerpt differs slightly from the finished publication. I had to tone down some of the ‘rough stuff’ due to concerns regarding non-cons sex. The story remains the same, but some of the edges have been smoothed, shall we say. Rather like applying a pumice stone…

A Great Big THANK YOU!!!

This morning I received the following pair of notifications from WordPress;

100 followers 200 likes

I’d just like to say a great big

Thank You

to everyone who has elected to follow me, plus an extra thank you to my friends who have commented, encouraged and advised me in the short time that I’ve been blogging.

I know that I can be random, I know that I can be rude (but you like that, right?), but I hope you continue to stick with me as I learn and develop my blogging style and make a better hash of it (that’s a good thing, isn’t it?) as I blog into the spring and summer time.

I look forward to reading the posts of my longer-term friends plus those of all my new ones!

Happy writing!

An extra big Muwaaaaah for you all!

Really, really put my foot in it this week!

I wanted to begin today’s blog post by telling you a little more about myself, but then I realised that after having changed my on-line name twice to avoid

A)    Perverts and Spammers and

B)     being noticed (again) by my work colleagues and bosses

that telling you personal stuff would be kind of self-defeating.  I’d love to share a little more about me with my friendly followers – it’s beginning to feel like a family here – but I’m risking being exposed (not THAT kind of exposure!) to those who would mock, ridicule and generally hand me my notice.

So instead I’ll tell you a little more about what I do when I’m not rambling away on my blog.

I’ve been very lucky to be found by Steam eReads, an Australian publisher who specialises in erotic stories.  However, most of my writing income is still generated by ghostwriting – those short stories that are created in a whirl of inspiration, then sent off into the electronic abyss never to be heard from again.  It’s a little sad – rather like fostering children who never write home once they’ve left.  That’s why Steam eReads has become a little like a literary anchor to me.  My name is on the cover of the book that I wrote and they’ve been nice enough to allow me a say in the cover and the final editing.

Ghostwriting is my bread and butter for now, though.  So I continue to trawl for work, fend off those who can’t read what I specialise in (No, I DON’T do web design – where did it say that on my resumee??) and hum and haw over offers of $15 for 10,000 word ‘short’ stories.  Do I really need the work that badly?

But this week I put my foot in it.  I was asked if I could produce a 6k short story with a gay element – featuring two or more participants.  Erotica, I thought.  I can do that.  I can do gay erotica.  After all, my BFF characters Amber and Lucy are always ‘at it.’

I accepted the challenge – and was shocked when the outline arrived.  I’d naturally assumed (as you may have) that I would be writing about two (or more) girlfriends.

Nope.

The contractor wanted guy-guy stuff.

Aw, shoot.

Pun not intended.

I credit myself with a pretty good set of imagination neurons, but this was off the beaten track, even for me.  Yes, I have a gay friend.  I might even have two (I must ask him if he is – just to be sure).  But this will take some ‘getting inside the head’ stuff.

The alternative is turning down dollars that I can really use.

*sighs*.

Time to start following more gay (guy) blogs?

Definitely time to start checking the job descriptions more closely.

Any advice, guys and girls?
