New publication!

I was delighted to arrive home from the trip and find comp copies of Rubber Sex, containing my story "Bathing Beauty," in my pile of mail.

You know, it's funny how easy it is to forget what I've written. I kicked back and read a couple of the stories, then flipped to mine. I remembered the basics (heck, part of the inspiration was a Penthouse Variations letter I read in the 1980s that somehow stuck with me), but I was surprised at what a sweet story it is. Pretty damn romantic—which most of my stories are, actually.

Another funny note: My mother actually did own the bathing cap described in the story. I had a different reaction to it, though…especially when I was once forced to wear the hideous thing!

Anyway, the anthology was edited by cupcake-cute Rachel Kramer Bussel and I'm in fine company, as there are stories by Teresa, Shanna Germain, and Alison Tyler, among many others. Rachel has set up a blog for the anthology as well—if you're interested, check it out!

Almost home

BTV airport has free wireless so I have a few minutes to check e-mail and whatnot before we board. I've had a lovely trip, spending a lot of time with my parents and seeing a few old friends as well. My wrist is feeling lots better; I worked some on a short story but otherwise iced my forearm a few times and played with a squeezy ball. I also ate way too much and got a bit of reading done.

Tomorrow I've got an appt with my trainer and Ken leaves for a rally. Friday I've got a chiro appt, the cleaning lady, and a friend from the UK arriving to spend the weekend. I swear I'll get caught up soon!

Hope everyone's been having fun whilst I've been away. Tell me stories—what have you all been up to?!
