I started 2020 on a bit of a sabbatical. James and I flew to India, back to a place we’d been before, in order to rewrite the book draft we’d completed on our last stay. Indoor Boh is a much-reworked crime caper with getaway by bike and boat but, at this point, it is still […]
The Edge of Realism
There’s a story in Begging for It that really works for me. And no, I don’t mean the one I wrote, Symphony. Though I hope you’ll find it irresistible. Fantasy is, as others have said, a realm of its own. When I saw that Rachel Kramer Bussel wanted erotic stories of female fantasies, my brain […]
My Summer of Boi
My hair’s growing out a little, getting thick and wavy. My warm winter layers have been washed and stowed in the compartment under the forepeak berth. As my body comes out from hiding from the cold, I go through a metamorphosis. My female marked body begins to lead me toward sexy, fitted clothing that makes […]
“The Undeniable Beauty of Gift”
While I honestly enjoyed each story in Come Again, I truly loved, and was even moved by, a select few. My favorite story in the collection was Gift by Dena Hankins. Gift features two women in their 60’s and 70’s exploring lesbian sex for the first time. They have been sleeping together for a few […]
Even better review
I found an even better version of one review of “Gift”, in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica, on Goodreads: The Gift, by Dina Hankins is a remarkably tender, sexy story of senior lovers, Helen and Margaret. As a senior woman this one resonates with me, for sure. It’s gratifying to see stories of senior sex […]
Some great reviews for “Gift” in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica
It’s tempting to spend all one’s time on Amazon’s author pages, refreshing the reviews page. Has anyone talked about my work? I stayed away a while and, what do you know, when I went back on, I saw some great mentions of my story in Come Again: Sex Toy Erotica! My favorite story was the […]
Goa Gets More Love
A new publisher on the erotica scene, Explicit Books, has chosen to reprint “Goa”, originally printed in Twice the Pleasure, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and published by Cleis Press. It’s available now in their e-book collection Breathless: Steamy Sexy Short Stories on Amazon. Also, they chose my story to be the sample – nice!
Publisher’s Weekly Compliments “Cooling Down, Heating Up”
Publisher’s Weekly reviewed Love Burns Bright while I wasn’t looking, and they said my story “Cooling Down, Heating Up” is “everyday magic“. I dig it!
Two Time Winner: Cooling Down, Heating Up
Best Lesbian Erotica 2015 will contain a reprint of Cooling Down, Heating Up! I’m terribly excited to be in a “Best of” anthology. Right now, I have only one more story out on consideration. Wish me luck!
Rachel Kramer Bussel Picks Symphony
And another short story has been chosen for publication! “Symphony” was my submission for an anthology with a female fantasy theme. I struggled over how to interpret that for a little while and then decided to write the fantasy itself rather than the frame story of the person fantasizing. Guess that worked out! In “Symphony”, […]
