Where I'll be - Gayromlit

Hey y'all!

Oct 13-15 I'll be in New Orleans for the Gayromlit convention.

This is the first annual edition of this con, and I'm excited that it's all m/m all the time. I have no idea how it will go, but I'm so tickled, and I love NOLA, even if it is hard to eat gluten free there. No beignets or mufalettas for us anymore.

I used to say that the best thing about NOLA was the food. Now I know better, because I can't eat ;) Now I know it's the people. And the architecture. I like the shopping, too.

Y'all should come see me and BA if you have a chance!

XXOO

Pushing Limits - New Short m/m - Excerpt

Hey, y'all!

Got a new Sip out today at Torquere. You can find it here!

I had a lot of fun writing this story, because it's a bit of a departure for me. 1st person bdsm with a lot of voyeurism tossed in for good measure. It's a short, hot, fun read, and I hope y'all love it.

Here's a bit of it just to tease you:

The whole spanking thing came up as a way for Dell to push my boundaries. He said he liked to do that, said he knew I was really a kinkster deep down.
I don't think I'm into kink so much as I'm into the things Dell does to me. He makes me feel everything, every square inch of my skin, every emotion I would like to lock deep inside and hide. He wants to see me like no one else does, and I let him.
"I hope you like the demonstration, baby," he said when we walked into his friend Jimmy's house. He just started calling me baby about two weeks ago, and it's a rather exquisite humiliation, how much I like it. It makes my dick hard almost every time.
I keep assuring myself that soon the novelty will wear off, as will the urge to get down on my knees and blow him when he tells me how hot I am. No one has ever called me baby.
"So, what's going on?"
"Well, you know Jimmy has that hot new guy in his life, right?"
I nodded. Jimmy was a nice guy, one of Dell's best friends at work. He'd hooked up with this smokin' hot artist guy maybe three weeks ago when we all went to Charlie's together. I thought Teiko was stunning, even if his lean, Eurasian look was the opposite of Dell, who's really my type.
"It turns out that Teiko is something of a pain slut."
My cheeks heated for maybe the tenth time that night. Dell likes to throw words like that around like I've been in the BDSM scene or something, like kink has been a habit my whole adult life. It's all still so new to me that it makes me a little crazy.
"Anyway, they found out they're perfectly matched. Jimmy likes to spank, Teiko likes to take it, and they both like to show it off."

Charity Sip out and newsletter

Hey y'all

Busier than a one-legged buttkicker.

Just wanted to announce my Getting Better Charity Sip at Torquere! At 1.99 it's a bargain, and all of my royalties on it go to the It Gets Better project with TQ matching it 100% It's also available at Rainbow Ebooks, who awesomely agreed to sponsor the Charity Sips this year and are the sole offsite distributor.

The story is called Coming Out Wolf, wherein Steve proves the worst thing in the world is certainly not being gay...

Find it here!

and here!

Also, I put out my first newsletter this week! If you go look on www.juliatalbot.com you can sign up and get that newsletter, which features a contest for my novel Manners and Means in paperback

Back from Las Vegas

Hey y'all!

Been off at the EEA (Erotic Authors Assoc) conference in Las Vegas since Thursday. Just got home yesterday and was so tired I could hardly see. Man, was my basset happy to see me.

Thanks to Kathleen Braden and DL King and everyone who worked/organized the con. We had a blast at the Paranormal panel and I think my blurb class went well. The erotic romance panel was interesting, though I have to say I felt like my opinion was the unpopular one with at least one other panelist. It should have made for lively debate, but instead made for a rather bruised feeling by the end. *grins* I can guarantee that's one editor I won't work with...

Still, it was a great learning experience, and I got to meet some fabulous folks.

Then there was Vegas. I've been many times, but I still love it for its cheesy glory. We stayed at Treasure Island, and got to see pirates and volcanoes, fountains and lions. There were many bunless hamburgers (hey TI and Mirage, I have 2 words for you. Udi's buns) and some amazing GF pastry at the Bellagio. Go almond cookie crusts! We had a ball, walked our feet off, and drank an enormous amount of coffee... Yum

What did you do this past weekend?
