Gracious, it's been awhile

Got the first draft of my cover art from Changeling Press. Don't forget that the (really short) het novella, Magic Touch comes out there on November 11. Go, shoo. Go buy it when it comes out.

No word on the story sold to Chippewa. As soon as I know anything, I'll holler.

What else? Look for a new Torquere Press single shot toward the end of November. It's a historical western, and I fell in love with the main characters, especially the narrarator Hank.

I need to get off my duff and clean and all... I had a friend up visiting, and man was that *fun*. Only problem is I get used to being lazy ;)

I need a new hat

something for fall. Maybe something in purple or burgundy red, with big fall flowers or fruit or something. Something outrageous.

I also need to get off my duff and get stuff going again. Progress on the novel goes well, but I have several shorts I need to write. I have no idea when edits on the one story will come in, so I'm just not looking at that right now. I also have another single shot due in I think in January, and I need to get on that. I'm torn between a fantasy piece I have started, a 1920s Egyptiology romp a la my all time favortie author Elizabeth Peters, or a sci fi slave piece.

I also have a BDSM story to work up for Turn of the Screw...


back to work

oh and just to see if anyone is reading, the first non-spam comment I receive on this entry will get a free copy of my book, A Gentleman of Substance, out from Torquere Press. It's m/m, post Colonial historical. Feel free to read an excerpt here, first: http://www.torquerepress.com/orders/talbot/jt011/ch01.html

Like I said, no spam. If your comment references any kind of advertisement it will be deleted.

More news

Sold a story to a print anthology called Lipstick on her Collar. Like the tale I have in Rode Hard and Put Away Wet (pimp pimp, find it at Suspect Thoughts Press), it's a lesbian erotica piece. It's not cowgirls this time, though. It's very 40s glamor girl. More on that when I figure out when it will be released next year...
