In March, I received the following e-mail from Tenille Brown:
I am writing to inform you that I have included "Strip to My Lou" in the Can't Get Enough manuscript. I found your story not only sexy, but smart and humorous and I thank you for submitting it. Of course, Cleis has the ultimate say on the final manuscript, but I wanted to pass on the news.
For four months, I felt like Terry McMillan, waiting to exhale.
And then, last week, official word came:
I wanted to send out a quick note to let you know that your story has made the final cut for the Can't Get Enough anthology.
Phew, hallelujah, and all that jazz.
Needless to say, some things are worth waiting four.
Curiouser and curiouser,
