I AM PLEASED TO WELCOME AUTHOR
Cameron D. James
Bio:
Cameron D. James is a life-long lover of books, voraciously reading everything from the classics to sci-fi, romance to science and nature, and thrillers to erotica. Understandably, a love of books led to a love of writing, having penned his first story in grade seven (about stolen baseball cards). Having written millions of words by now, Cameron now focusses on one of his favourite genres — gay erotica.

Cameron is a fan of Star Trek, having seen every episode of every series (including the animated series) and every movie at least twice. In addition to Star Trek, Cameron also loves physical exercise and seeing how far he can push his body. He’s taken kickboxing, Bikram hot yoga (that’s the super hot and tough one), diving, personal training at the gym, and likes his regular Wii workouts (seriously, they’re a lot more intense than they look).

Other interests include listening to electronica music (particularly Armin Van Buuren), puttering around the house (and attempting to grow a garden), and gawking at cute twink baristas at the various coffee shops where’s he’s such a regular that he’s known by first name.

BANTER – STUFF ABOUT YOU
Q: Tell me one thing about each of the four seasons you like. It can be anything.
A:        Winter = The drifts of snow!  I really love them!
            Spring            = The leaves budding on the trees!
            Summer = The hot, shirtless, young men!
            Fall = The crunch of fallen leaves under my feet!

Q: Coffee or Tea?
A: Coffee all the way! When I started drinking coffee, I was on a class trip to Paris and we had coffee with our breakfast.  Because I was (and probably still am) a little bit odd, I didn’t want to add milk to my coffee because I didn’t know if milk in France would taste like milk back home in Canada... so I drank it black.  It was horrid, but I did it every morning and now I’m hopelessly addicted (and still prefer it black)!

Q: How do you feel about exercise?
A: I generally don’t like it.  But I have to stay fit, so I do it anyway.  I’ve discovered a love for hot yoga – the speedos, the sweating, the twisting, the near-nakedness... I love it all!

Q: Texting, love it or hate it?
A: Love it!  Now that my mom has a cell phone and has picked up texting, I almost never have to phone anyone anymore!  I get about one phone call a month and it’s usually for a vet appointment or a haircut or something.

BOOKS – ABOUT THE CRAFT
Q: What do you think is the hardest part of writing a book?
A: Making the sex captivating and engaging.  Almost every other part of a book, in any genre, is easier than writing a sex scene.  If you’re writing about a first meeting with aliens, you can bluff your way through and the reader will go along for the ride.  But with sex scenes, since pretty much everyone who reads it will have had sex before, you can’t bluff your way through a scene or take lazy writing shortcuts.  Sex scenes need to be expertly crafted or else a reader will roll their eyes and put the book down.

Q: Which of your own releases was your particular favorite?
A: This latest release, Go-Go Boys of Club 21: The Complete Series is my favourite.  I worked so hard on this collection and it took me through writing hell and back.  In the end, I feel it’s a top-notch book, the best I’ve ever written.  Plus, in addition to the ebook, I’m in the midst of designing the paperback version (which should be out by the time you read this) – and there’s something almost surreal about holding the paperback compilation in my hands.  It’s a year of hard work come to fruition.

Q: Are you a sit down and play it by ear kind of writer, or do you need a structured guideline, or maybe a little of both?
A: It’s a bit of both.  With Go-Go Boys of Club 21: The Complete Series, I had it all outlined and planned before I started writing the first scene.  But as I wrote, new storylines began to emerge and I discovered I really needed to get into another character’s POV, so the story expanded and the POV characters diversified.  I went with it, but still held more or less to my original plan.  My final product is all the richer for it.  But if I had gone head-first into this with no plan, I probably wouldn’t have had the strong narrative arc that drives the book forward.  So, for me, both approaches to writing are equally important.

Q: Generally speaking, is your work based on real life experience? If it's not would you want it to be?
A: Hahaha! Considering my work is FILLED with endless hot sex, I WISH my real life was that erotic!  Honestly, though, I wouldn’t want the drama and emotional rollercoasters that the characters go through... just the sex.

BOOKS - NOW LETS PROMOTE – STRUT YOUR STUFF
Q: What are you working on now? Would you like to share anything about it?
A: Now that the Go-Go Boys series is complete, I’m taking a brief writing rest, but will soon move into my upcoming Forbidden Desires series of novellas.  The stories in Forbidden Desires will all be completely independent and separate from each other, but will have the same theme of love and sex between two men in a slightly forbidden context.  For example, the first novella will feature a burgeoning relationship between a young man and his best friend’s father.  Future stories may include romantic pairings between a college professor and his student, or other questionable power relationships.

Q: Do you have a new book coming out soon? Tell us about it.
A: This blog tour I’m on is about a new release, so, yup, I do!  Go-Go Boys of Club 21: The Complete Series, is the compilation of the Go-Go Boys of Club 21 series of short stories and novellas.  There are five stories in this compilation, two of which have made bestseller lists on All Romance eBooks, and all of them have received great reviews and ratings.  This compilation edition is being released in ebook format on all major retailer websites, as well as print format on Amazon.


Let me show you the blurb:
Club 21 is known across New York City for having the hottest go-go boys. They groove to the beat, fuel fantasies, and leave you begging for more.

Liam is one of those premiere go-go boys, but even though he's living the life he's dreamed about, he feels something is missing. And he might have found that something when he gets into a whirlwind romance with a former porn star.

Lance is the newest go-go boy. He took the job because he's infatuated with Liam and hoping for a chance to get to know him better, but only gets a broken heart as he watches Liam chase some guy he barely knows. As Lance pushes to get closer to Liam, he only pushes him further away.

As the beat goes on and the tempo changes, will Lance be able to win the man of his dreams? Or will Liam forever go off in search of new excitement?

Originally released as five separate stories, this volume at last collect the Go-Go Boys of Club 21 into one hot volume.

Excerpt:
We’re the go-go boys of Club 21. We dance, we fuel fantasies, and we give ourselves to the beat. We bump, we grind, and before each shift we have a jerk off competition; the order in which we come determines who gets the most desirable dance platform.

Normally, I shoot first, earning me the prime spot by the DJ. Ken usually comes shortly after me; he claims I get him excited. Lance, our new guy, he’s always last and ends up with the crappy spot by the pool tables.

Today, I decided to try something different—a strategy, if you will—to teach Lance an important lesson about being a go-go boy. I yanked down the front of my shorts and let my cock hang out, then grabbed it in my fist, stroking up and down the shaft. In front of me, Liam and Ken stood with their shorts tucked under their balls as they pumped with vigor.

I held back, loosening my grip just a bit, but still keeping it tight enough to stay hard and throbbing. I grunted and faked an impending climax, hoping it would give the other guys incentive to rush to completion.

The faking worked. Ken groaned and numerous rockets of hot, white cum launched from his cock. His load splattered on the tiled floor, like some abstract painter’s creation, a wad of it dropping on my toes.

“Sorry, Liam,” Ken said as he came down from that high of orgasm. I doubted Ken was actually sorry—he was definitely the bad boy of our trio. He drank, partied, and had a high-octane sex drive.

I looked at the cum on my feet and then winked at him. “Ken, you sick fucker. You can lick it off.”

He stuck his tongue out at me, then crossed his arms and watched Lance and I battle to the finish. I kept stroking, making my effort look convincing. Lance fixed me with his usual cocky stare. Lust glazed his eyes too, no doubt fuelled by the actions of his fist.

“Uhhh...” Lance groaned as his cock fired off a dozen good bullets of cum, showering across the diamond-tile floor. Fuck, he could shoot a mean load.

Lance had joined us three weeks ago and I didn’t know too much about him. He was a quiet jock, a much better fit than Aaron, the airhead twink who he’d replaced. Having a jock in our small group was good for bringing in more customers. Ken and I were well-toned and we all had boyish charm—it was part of the job, after all—but Lance’s body was hard and toned, and packed with an impressive array of muscle. And boy, could he dance.

I didn’t realize I’d stopped stroking until Ken said, “You planning on coming?”

I shrugged, letting go of my cock. “I don’t think it’s happening tonight...probably shouldn’t have tugged it this afternoon.”

Ken snorted. “Whatever.” He swiped a bead of cum from his dick and licked it off, then tugged up his shorts and headed to the staff bathroom to grab paper towels.

Lance and I pulled up our shorts too. I smiled at him, trying to give my best look of sheepish defeat.

“That was on purpose, wasn’t it?” He asked.

I leaned in close to him. “Yeah. Now, why do you think I did it?”

“Hmm...are you trying to teach me another one of your go-go boy secrets?”

I grabbed my thick bulge and gave it a shake for him. “See this?”

Lance looked down at my basket and bit his lip, then reached in his shorts and adjusted himself. “Mmm. I get it. Don’t come so you’ve got a bigger bulge.”

“The bigger the bulge, the bigger the tips, no matter where you dance. I’ll prove it to you. I plan to make a killing tonight. Tomorrow, you can try and do the same. I bet you’ll make more than your usual thirty-seven bucks.”

Ken came back with the paper towels and started wiping up the cum. He paused and looked up at us. I think he knew we had cut off a conversation upon his return. “Boys?”

I looked at Lance—he would keep a straight face if I lied. “We’re talking about bulges,” I said.

A wicked grin crossed Ken’s lips as he wiped more cum up from the floor, then from my foot. “Bulges are one of my favorite things to talk about.” He tossed the paper towels in the wastebasket. “Are we talking about a particular bulge?”

Lance looked as if he’d been caught red-handed with porn. “Liam’s.”

“Oh...in that case, that’s definitely a bulge I like.” Ken grabbed the front of my tight shorts, groping my cock and balls.

I swatted his hand away. “No touching unless you’re tipping. You know the rules.”

Ken laughed and swiftly turned around. He slapped my ass as he passed me. “I like your butt better than your bulge, anyway.”
