Hello Readers! Today I bring you one of my favorite people, erotic romance author Ann Mayburn. Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she’s been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age Ann’s been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she’s never looked back.
Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her ‘sexy space’ and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.
Ann is here today to tell us about a fun new game she’s bring to events this year. Please help me welcome Ann to That’s What I’m Talking About.
One of my favorite games growing up was Bingo. See, my best friend’s mom and all her aunts played Bingo every Friday night at some small town hall thing. I can’t remember its name but it reeked of coffee and cigarette smoke. I’d often go help out and serve the coffee to the ladies for a tip…usually 10 cents. 😛 Cheap old bitches. Anyways, I got kinda good at Bingo after watching all these women dominate like ten cards at a time.
To this day, yelling BINGO has to be one of the best things to do. I wanted to recreate this experience for women at the Author’s After Dark conference in Savannah, GA and Ellora’s Caves Romanticon in Oct. I wanted to do BINGO, but I wanted it to be kinky. And from the weird whirlpool of my imagination I pulled out the idea for BDSM Bingo.
And oh let me tell ya, this is not your grandma’s Bingo. There will be swearing, there will be shocked laughter, and there will be a panel of BDSM authors that are going to blow your mind. 😉
AAD 2013 BDSM Bingo Panel- Eliza Gayle, Joey W. Hill, Yvette Hines, Ann Jacobs, Annabel Joseph, Kallypso Masters, Cherise Sinclair, and Sasha White. Oh and me. 😀
Romanticon 2013 BDSM Bingo Panel- Joey W. Hill, Desiree Holt, Ann Jacobs, Samantha Cayto, and me again.
What are the prizes? Every author is filling a basket with BDSM and aftercare gifts. And they are craaazzzyyyy good. For example in my basket I had a rabbit fur flogger made. It is so awesome for sensation play. 😀 I know the other authors are also having items custom made as well. If we run out of time and there are left over baskets, we’re going to give them away ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ style. Meaning that if I yell out, “I need a rubber duck” the first person in the audience to give me a rubber duck wins that basket.
I hope to see a lot of you there and if you’re in the mood for steamy, sweet, and all together yummy BDSM Romance, may I recommend my current release My Wicked Nanny. And if you would really love some quality FemDom, check out Still. 😀
My Wicked Nanny
Book 2 of the Club Wicked Series
Loose ID publishing
Young nanny Anya Kozlov takes a job at the elite BDSM club, Wicked, in order to pay for her upcoming trip to Paris. Donning a mask to disguise herself she uses the fake name of Dove. On her first night she is shocked when she finds out that the man she is a nanny for and has an enormous crush on, Jesse Shaw, is also a member of Wicked. When Jesse expresses his interest in teaching her about the dark pleasures of Dominance and submission Anya is helpless to resist, even though she is lying to him about who she is.
Jesse can’t seem to get Dove, out of his mind. It’s been five years since his wife passed and for the first time he feels something beyond physical lust or friendship for a woman. He is angry and hurt when he finds out that Dove is really Anya, his meek and mousy nanny. With only a few weeks left before Anya leaves for Paris, Jesse is determined to get her to not only tell the truth, but also mark her heart and soul so that she doesn’t forget him when they are an ocean apart.
I have to tell you all that I absolutely LOVED My Wicked Nanny, and my review will be on the blog later today.
Thank you so much, Ann, for stopping by and tell us about your new favorite game! I cannot wait to see you again in Savannah for some BDSM bingo!
