New website and discussion of transphobia

http://www.joellecasteelauthor.com
So last time, I relied on someone I thought was a friend to set up a site for me and host it. This time, I have contracts :D Went with a Weebly and paid them money. I know at least one person- hey Roz!!- had issues commenting on that other website, but hopefully the Weebly won't have that issue.

I want to take a moment here- I'd debated about issuing an apology because part of what that former friend did was write me a tagline without talking to me first that was transphobic. Now it wasn't obviously transphobic- to a cisgender person who hasn't been taught better- but if he had asked me before going live, I could have told him how he was wrong. As it was, I asked a genderqueer friend hir opinion because I wasn't sure it was transphobic and ze confirmed for me that it was wrong.

"Non binary role" is transphobic. First "non binary" isn't a thing I've ever seen. Nonbinary or non-binary. Second nonbinary is a gender, just like man or woman; it isn't a role that someone changes like clothing; it's a core piece of their identity.

Where Dinner is an Event #BDSM #6BestHop #MF


I think the last time I did Sunday's Six of the Best, this book was due to come out. Well out now it is :D I've skipped ahead to share 7 (Yes, I need a spanking hehe) paragraphs from chapter 2, in the hunky Jack's POV. Enjoy :) He's setting up where he's taking Laura on their first date.
---

A moment later, a young feminine voice said, "Dreamscape, where dinner is an event. How may I help you?"

Trying to keep the desperation out of his voice, Jack asked, "Is there any way I can get two reservations for dinner tonight?"

"It's pretty unlikely, but let me look if there are any cancellations." The line went quiet for a moment before announcements of local commerce started.

Jack looked out the window at Mike frolicking around the back yard; he inserted Laura into the moment and a smile overtook his anxious frown.

The lady came back on the line. "Hello? Sir?"

"Yes?" Jack replied. He gripped his ballpoint pen.

"Good news, I just had two seats open up. Now have you ever been to Dreamscape that you know how our tables work?"
--- 
And you'll need to buy the book to find out how those tables are set up :D






blurb:

When Laura goes out one night, she doesn't expect to meet a handsome eligible man. She definitely doesn't expect him to be interested in her or to ask her out on a date. Laura hits it off with Jack right from the beginning and there's an easy connection between them. But an experience on their remarkable first date pushes her to wonder if she can have something more with Jack.
Would he be a compatible partner in meeting her sexual desires? Laura decides she wants to push her own boundaries and explore the world of BDSM. Can Jack still be the man for her? She'll find out if he's up to take her challenge.

Author's Note: This book includes spankings, BDSM activities, sexual activity between a cisgender man and a cisgender woman. Please do not buy if such material offends you.

Dirty thoughts #spanking #BDSM #SaturdaySpankings



I'm playing around with blogging and my website so please enjoy the posting here. "Laura Challenges " came out back in August while I was deep in depression; please know that I'm working on books 2 and 3- more hotness with Laura and Jack. For now, please enjoy Laura's first glimpse of Jack.
---

"Mind if I join you?" A man with the smoky good looks of a model stood beside Laura's table.
"Not at all. My name is Laura and you are?" She gestured toward the empty chair across the small black table holding her drink and purse. She took in the neatly trimmed beard that lent him a rugged look, his buzzed head that made her think dirty thoughts of her fingers moving over his head, the way his chest filled out his shirt.

Pondering and posting

Might be a little silly because I'm getting tipsy- I get multiple canker sores when I'm stressed and I'm in quite a bit of pain at the moment. I'm considering blogs and domains and such and not making any decisions yet. But when I saw the ease, the streamlining of Blogger... well I'm pondering if moving away from it was necessary. The feared crack down on erotica/romance authors didn't happen. I haven't posted on my other site since my previous computer died on 10/22; I lost materials that I'm still fighting to retrieve and of course there's passwords and all.

I did manage to complete National Novel Writing Month with 50269 words; I'm still working on that story as I'm also involved in the creation of an intersectional fiction press- but believe me, my other two friends make me feel ridiculous in terms of how much they are accomplishing.

But my Nanowrimo book... Three people meet in the unisex bathroom line at a science fiction convention. They are Suvi (blond, blue eyed bisexual female who is monogamous but open to a new form of relationship), Ocean (Greek beauty who's intergender and mixes gender in hir presentation), and Naveed (Iranian-American trans man who uses a wheelchair and lives with fibromyalgia). I given that this is being written with that intersectional fiction press in mind- we're going with Cuil's Sinister Press- I decided to include things like safer sex and inclusive anatomy words. Once the book is published (maybe, hopefully sometime in the summer if I can get my act together and finish :D ) Dental dams, internal and external condoms (no "female" and "male" condom names in the story), midpoint clitorophallus just to name a few differences within this book.

#FFFiction my review of "A Woman Like That: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories"

I invite you to consider what makes a woman. Some Fridays, I'll even share something sexy :D.


"A Woman Like That: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories" edited by Joan Larkin


I rarely do this, but I'm going to review this book before I've finished reading it- I'm really struggling to finish the book. If the title didn't mention bisexuals, if the book's focus was only lesbian writers and their coming out stories, wouldn't hesitate to give this book 5 stars; as it is, I feel 4 stars. 31 authors' stories were included, of which I've read all but the last 12. I often wonder how the coming out experience of a GLBT person has affected their writing so I've enjoyed this anthology so much based on the sharing of often silenced voices. By that same point though, as a bisexual woman, the nominal inclusion of bisexual identified women's voices offends and angers me. Bi-invisibility and -erasure is such a huge problem in both heterosexual and GLBT communities; I would hope the editors of this anthology would be more thoughtful of that.

#FFFiction A raging poem of a non-monosexual woman who loves women

I invite you to consider what makes a woman. Some Fridays, I'll even share something sexy :D.



So I'm reading "A Woman Like that: Lesbian and Bisexual Writers Tell Their Coming Out Stories," edited by Joan Larkin. I'll eventually review the book- I'm on page 184 of 326. I was even farther from "half read" before it provoked piece that lurks somewhere between a poem and a paragraph. I'm actually enjoying the book- overall- and expect I'll end up giving it 4 out of 5 stars. However, that bisexual in the subtitle set me off; as a bisexual woman, I have felt excluded from much of this book

Don't fucking add me to make yourself feel better PC-wise. I see a male body I wanna screw. I see a female body I wanna screw. I see a body so completely outside the gender binary that pronouns seem wrong for this person I wanna screw. I love women, romantically, sexually, spiritually, but that doesn't mean I'm a lesbian. My identity is mine, what I declare it to be. I am bisexual. I am a (cisgender) woman who loves women, mostly, but don't think to tell me what sort of woman (cis or trans?) that I should love. My coming out, once began, will never end. Nor do I want it to.

#WIPiTuP In Joelle's brain, everything is crazy and well at the same time, but porn

Sharing WIPs (works in progress) can be so very fun! On this lovely blog hop, enjoy a bunch of authors sharing excerpts of what they're working on- get ready to add some great books to your TBR, once the author publishes :) Although occasionally you may find an author sharing a published work. Give 'em a break- these may just be roughly edited- but please do leave a comment! We authors like to know we're going in a good direction.




So I was getting set to write some more in "Tabitha and Bina in Love" for you all to enjoy this week- Tab's been talking at me anyway about getting back to her heart to heart with her dear calico who will somehow get her to stop stressing about her first cyber date with Bina- but then Vala started babbling at me in the midst of crazy church related stuff as well as work on my blog (posts for Monday and Tuesday done before church service at 8pm EST- I do love going to an online church :D). She has great timing, huh? Kinda like Melody's annoying yellow inner voice (and I've probably put those words together out of order lol).

Are you gonna keep babbling at them? My turn!

Vala, you are such a brat! I'm gonna get The Queen over here.

Vala snorts. Right. And you want him to notice that you're not getting to Annikka's nits on "Skipping"? "Oh my sweetest, most loving Queen? Joelle isn't getting her work done. I don't know she deserves the chance to invite you to her bed anymore, my Queen."

The Queen echoes Vala's snort. His grin is wide and predatory. "Joelle, really? You are going to have Vala and I talking with you rather than working on your other WIP? The blurb waiting for the one that you plan to submit some time this coming week- maybe even before this conversation goes live?"

"Well I'm busy! There's so much to do. I don't feel entirely well. How about I work on Tabitha and Bina after church?" I bat my eyelashes at The Queen, knowing that it wouldn't work on my Master either. "I'm just wound and this probably isn't the best space for me to be writing fiction in. Won't you come spend some time with me as I work on the #sexUUality posts later?"

He laughs, great big belly laughs. Vala wipes the tears from his cheeks before he straightens back up. "You sure are managing a lot of cheek tonight. Which of the principles are you on?"

"Second. I've only finished the first principle so far and I wanted to finish the principles during February. Of course, the hops on Monday, Tuesday, and today don't help."

He rolls his eyes at me. "Pretending you are not writing this Sunday evening? I will help you only if you swear not to work during service tonight; the most you should be doing otherwise is chatting with Annikka. Got it?"

"Yup. I'll behave." I giggle as he shakes his head. "Yeah, I know. My Master teases when I say that to Him."

"My Queen," Vala whines. "She's being so rotten."

"Whose submission should you be caring about?" His glare holds her still.

"Mine or my submissives, my Queen." After he wanders away, she wrinkles her nose at me. "You're lucky. I bet someone just made him come so he was in a good mood."

"Shove it." I laugh at Vala. "I'm doing what I'm supposed. Are you?"

... psst... The Queen's the same religion as me...
