I have marvelous news to share. Or, in 60s-speak, marvy news. (I've been watching a lot of The Lucy Show lately.) Anywho, I recently received word that my short story, "Sleeping with Beauty," a tale of two theme park princesses who find love and lust at The Happiest Place on Earth, will be included in Alison Tyler's Alison's Wonderland. This anthology will be published by Harlequin through their Spice imprint in July of 2010. I am tickled bubblegum pink to be featured among the A-listers of erotica.
Alison passed on some feedback from the editor at Harlequin:
There's a lot of really great, creative stuff here! Among the hightlights for me were: "Managers and Mermen," "Sleeping with Beauty," "The Clean-Shaven Type," "A Taste for Treasure," "The Walking Wheel," and "Dancing Shoes." But most of the stories are completely original, titillating, and entertaining.
It's an honor to be highlighted.
In other marvy news, my short story, "Smut Puppy," about a smut scribe revealing the secret of her, um, smut scribing, will be included in Alessia Brio's Coming Together: Into the Light.
This collection will be published by Phaze in January 2010. Proceeds from the sale of the anthology will be donated to V-Day, a "global movement to end violence against women and girls."
If you're curious about the title of the piece, it's an homage to The Golden Girls. Slut puppy was Sophia's pet name for Blanche. I needed to modify the moniker, though, as "slut" wasn't exactly appropriate for the protagonist, but the sentiment is still pretty much the same.
Curiouser and curiouser,
