Sexy as sin

Although technically I haven’t “sold” a story until the check is in my hot little hands (or the payment is in my hot little Paypal account), I usually can’t contain myself by the time the countersigned contract arrives. So now I shall burble: I sold two stories to Rachel Kramer Bussel’s Orgasmic: Erotica for Women!

Look at that cover. Isn’t she sexy as sin?


Both of my stories were essentially written by request. I’d submitted one story, and then Rachel put out a call that she needed a pregnancy story and an anal story. Oddly enough, I already had the first couple pages of a pregnancy story (yes, I know, me?! That’s why they call it “making stuff up.”), so I finished it and fired it off to her, and then wrote an anal story, and she accepted both of those and rejected the initial story that I’d sent.

This amuses me to no end.

Anyway, the book is available for pre-order at many fine establishments (Amazon, Powells, B&N, etc.) and is due out August 1, 2010.

(Good Lord and Lady, but promo takes time. I’m posting this here, adding the stories to my website, downloading the cover, uploading the cover to Flickr, adding the cover to iPhoto, adding the cover to Facebook, adding the cover here, and e-mailing my web goddess to ask her to add a new bibliography section for my Kendra Wayne pseudonym. Phew! And to think I have writing to do, too!)

I am not worthy.

You are my hero. One day I hope to be as creatively busy as you. :D

You are totally worthy, silly woman! {{{hugs}}}

And, you know what? Work begets work. The more you write, the more you'll find to write. Start small - write 250 or 500 words a day for a week. Then a month.

And submit, submit, submit!

Thanks for plugging it all over - I'm very excited about this one and doing a special Orgasm Night reading at my series. I really appreciate your stories upon request!

Oh Rachel, how could I not plug it?! I'm always over the moon when you accept one of my stories—two was just icing on the cupcake! Thank you for putting out the call and liking my work! :-)

You can request stories from me anytime. ;-)
