I Do: An Anthology in Support of Marriage Equality is now available in print!

I hope you're feeling philanthropic, because your purchase benefits Lambda Legal, an organization dedicated to the fulfillment of equality and the attainment of civil rights.

The Man Who Would Be King

January 19, 2009

Coming Together: At Last is now available! Volume two of this collection features my poem, "Synchronized."

Purchase information, as well as a titillating trailer of this Alessia Brio anthology, may all be found here.

What better way to celebrate MLK Day than to buy a copy of this book and support Amnesty International?

Tease and Thank-You

January 5, 2009

I'm such a tease.

Or so I've been told.

All right, so I've never been told that I'm a tease, but now is as good a time as any to become one.

P.A. Brown, one of the contributors to I Do, posted an excerpt from my story on her blog.

Because I'm a staunch believer in the tit-for-tat philosophy, and because I enjoyed P.A.'s arresting story, I wanted to return the favor.

Her piece, entitled "The Mistake," is anything but. A bitty blurb: "A hungry West Hollywood Hustler, a hot cop, and a pair of keyless handcuffs come together in a Hollywood motel room."

I suspect you want more?

Well, I aim to please, so without further ado...

Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. My mother always said I'd end up in a bad way. Who'da thought the old bitch would actually be right for once?

I mean, the only reason I ended up at the Sleepy Side Motel in the first place was the simple fact I hadn't eaten in two full days and my gut was telling me to feed it now. How can you argue with your stomach? It's not like you can tell it to shut up or else, right?

So when the guy in the Lincoln stopped me on my stroll through Boystown and offered me a C note to let him fuck me, how could I say no?

The World and All Its Charms

January 3, 2009

If she's dead, I'm going to kill her.

Thus begins "Mélange," my contribution to Best Lesbian Romance 2009. This anthology, edited by prolific fiction writer Radclyffe, is now available from Cleis Press.

Also available is I Do: An Anthology in Support of Marriage Equality, which includes my lovey-dovey love story "Holy Macaroni (and Cheese)." When I posted the previous entry, I didn't anticipate such a speedy release. I'm accustomed to being patient, albeit begrudgingly, so I was pleasantly surprised to learn of the anthology's availability. Readers who prefer e-book may purchase the collection now. Readers who prefer paperback will have to hold out until January 21, which isn't so bad, even for an impatiently patient person like me.

Happy New Year and happy reading!
