Best Women’s Erotica 2010 News!

Since I’ve received my contract in the mail, it seems safe to announce that my story “Shift Change” is slated to be published in Best Women’s Erotica 2010 edited by Violet Blue! For those who were here earlier this year for the Blow Hard Tour 2009, the first excerpt I included in my post was from “Shift Change.” : )

The Best Women’s Erotica series is published by Cleis Press, and I am utterly delighted to have a story included in this edition. I much look forward to reading the other stories in the book as well by authors such as Heidi Champa, Rachel Kramer Bussel, and Alison Tyler. Alas, it is not scheduled to be released until December of this year, but it is available for pre-order on Amazon now.

I’m counting down already!! Yay!


The more I watched him, the more mesmerizing he became. He wasn’t the kind of guy I usually found myself attracted to, the kind that turned my head on the street and brought an unsolicited “fuck me please” forward in my brain. He was the kind that was necessary to watch like this, instigator of a quieter kind of attraction that came out only when all the characteristics that showcased his sexiness — focus, intensity, knowledge — came together for display.

    Thanks very much Heidi, Haven, and Danielle!

    Ha, Danielle, of course you’re not late, but even if you were, I have been known to be late myself. ;) Welcome!

  13. Alana says:

    Well, if Danielle was late, then I’m . . . I don’t know. A super duper tardy suck wad? :-)

    Congratulations, Em.


  14. And I’m a double whatever-Alana-was, still trying to catch up with this week! But heartfelt congratulations, Emerald.

  15. Emerald says:

    HA! Alana, I seriously cracked up when I read that, and then kept laughing when I read what Janine said.

    Of course I consider neither of you late whatsoever — thank you so much, and thank you for coming by!

  16. Alana says:

    Hey Em, I can’t wait to read your story in BWE. Maybe we can swap signed anthos or something? Then I can read your story AND say “I knew her when . . .”

    Congratulations again. Major kudos. And well deserved.


  17. danielle says: alana and janine make me look like i am right on time????..:-)

  18. Emerald says:

    Lol Danielle! Really, there is no such thing as late around here. ;) Heh, it might seem hypocritical for me to deem such even if I found it appropriate!

    Ah, Alana, you flatter me. But of course, I would be happy to, and thank you again so much!
