Win the Coolest T-shirt Ever on the Cowboy Lust Blog Tour

Not too full of myself and my exemplary t-shirt-making skills, am I?  Actually, I just came up with the slogan and typed it into Vistaprint.  It’s much like the delicious meatballs I cooked for dinner last night that my son praised me for (frozen turkey meatballs microwaved courtesy of mom–oh, and I dumped the Prego on, too).  I did very little work, but I’m happy to take the credit. 😉

Check this shiznit out!

I’ll show you my e-reader if you show me yours!

Fabulous, isn’t it?  Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil–WITH SKULLS!  Man, I love skulls.

It’s a size large, ladies t-shirt, but I also have a size medium guys shirt if any dude is cool enough to wear this (I don’t know–this shirt requires a level of coolness that is, quite frankly, rarely seen in most men).

Anyway, you want it, right?  You want to know how to get it, right?  Well, I’m going to tell you.  Check out my interview and an excerpt from “Some Like it Dirty” at http://www.delightedreader.com/ on 8/14/2012.  Comment on said interview.

You are suddenly and inextricably in the running!

Other prizes include a variety of smutty e-books from the “Cowboy Lust” authors.  The grand prize, a $50 gift card, will be awarded to a random commenter, so follow the tour, comment at every stop, and, for heaven’s sake, wear your lucky underwear!  Because, hey, free money and free smut!  Tell your moms.  Tell your friends.  Tell your friends’ moms and your mom’s friends.

Hell, tell random strangers on the street.  This news is simply too big to shut up about.

Okay, I’ll shut up now.

Fine print: This t-shirt can only be shipped to a location in the continental U.S.


Girls Who Write Boys Who Dig Boys Who Like Girls

You know the tune to sing to that, right?

If not, here you go.  Thank me later for the incredible ear worm.

Our talk today is about–you guessed it, girls who write boys who dig boys.  Don’t be discombobulated by my sketchy title.

Recently, I wrote a short gay erotica after reading some of the same.  For one, I like to flex my writing muscle, try new things, all that jazz.  My mom asked me, “How would you even know how to write that?”

Yeah, that’s right; I told my mom I was writing gay smut.  She’s my mom.  She has to love me no matter how far off the charts I go.  Besides, it’s just fun to see what she says.  If she wants to spend more time with her bible-thumping daughter, she’s entitled, but so far my writing proclivities haven’t boomeranged her in that direction.

Anyway, I didn’t tell her that I’ve done all the shit I write about; therefore, it’s really not too tough to write about.  Shock her, yes.  Give her a heart attack with confessions about blow jobs and anal sex—no.  Even I have my boundaries.

But, really, is it a huge stretch to imagine what two hot gay guys might get up to with a tube of lube and all the time in the world?  Nope.  In fact, a large percentage of M/M erotica authors are women.  Yes, men write it too, but the chicks are well represented.  And why not?

Is there some rule that non-lawyers can’t write a legal thriller?  Those without a medical background are incapable of producing the next Patricia Cornwell-esque novel?  Non-pet owners shouldn’t write characters who own dogs?As anything, you must do your homework.  The old adage, “write what you know” applies to an extent; in that, if you don’t know, you better find out.  Research–online, real live books, ask friends, whatever.  I wish I had a close gay friend so I could pick his brain.  And ask him for fashion advice.  But I don’t—yet.  So for now, I’ll stick to reading what others have written, trolling forums, and watching porn.

I’ll also keep DVR-ing Dr. G for when I get around to my autopsy mystery masterpiece.  You never know.

&&&&&&&&

Not to deviate too much from my topic, I also wanted to address the believability of females writing male characters and vice versa.  I read a blog post a little while back in which a woman was bashing a male author who had written from a female character’s POV.  Her beef was that he, apparently, did not have the slightest idea how women talk, think, behave, etc.  I did not read the original, so can’t weigh in on it.  I do, however, write horror on occasion, and I wonder if men generally shy away from female horror authors?  Also, do they dislike reading fiction with a female main character and/or dislike when women authors write from a male POV?

Just some thoughts, and if anyone has theories on this, lay it on me.  I am stone-cold curious.

Discuss. 

On a side note, I’m so glad they are letting that big ole lobster go free.  The guy that eats that bad boy would probably die immediatly of mercury poisoning anyway.  Bury ‘im with the plastic bib still on and melted butter running out of his nose.
