Another rave review for Hurts So Good! Ashley Lister, who reviewed the collection for the Erotica Readers & Writers Association (ERWA) proclaimed that each and every story in the anthology is a "joy to read."

Just had to share the joyful news.

What Erotica Can Aspire To

November 16, 2008

Recently, Kathleen Bradean reviewed Hurts So Good at Erotica Revealed. (Thanks, Alison, for passing that along!) KB gave the collection two thumbs up and singled out my story, calling it a "fun spanking piece."

Mosey on down here to read the review in full, then saunter over to Cleis Press and order Hurts So Good so that you can read the anthology in full. That is, if you haven't already. You have already, haven't you...?

Row, Row, Row Your Vote, Or: Barack, Paper, Scissors

Abe Lincoln, Jefferson, Tom.
They didn't need the atomic bomb.
We need beauty, we need art.
We need a government with heart.
Don't give up your freedom of speech.
Power to the people is in our reach.
Dr. King, Malcolm X.
Freedom of speech is as good as sex.

I wonder if the title of this blog qualifies for any sort of world record on length. Someone ought to look into that.

On Tuesday, I rocked the vote. I deliberated voting early but am very glad that I never got around to it, as I spent a mere twenty minutes in line at the polls. Who knew that procrastination would one day work in my favor?

I watched the election coverage on ABC and was finally able to exhale after four hours when the number of electoral votes in the blue box surpassed 270. I don't particularly care for the dichotomous nature of elections; however, I much preferred one of the two candidates to the other.

I only wish I lived in California so that I could have voted no on Prop Hate. Er, 8. Although, what's the difference, really?

Going to the Chapel... or Synagogue... or City Hall

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart." - Helen Keller

Best Lesbian Love Stories 2009 is now available!

This collection features my short story, "The Felicity of Domesticity," about a couple who joined in holy macaroni (and cheese) at the age of six and are now contemplating renewing their vows.

The anthology was released on November 1 from Alyson Books and is edited by Simone Thorne.

On another note, femeninete, the zine that published my piece, "Eviction Notice," sent a notice of their own. To wit, a death notice. This is indeed a lamentable loss to the literary community.
