Relative Fabulousness!

I am utterly delighted to have received a contract for my story “Relative Anonymity” to be published in Best Bondage Erotica 2011, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel and to be released by Cleis Press in December!

I haven’t seen the table of contents yet, so I don’t know who else is in it, but it is available for pre-order on Amazon, and there’s the cover there on the right (I have almost that very same outfit! : )). I’m thrilled that “Relative Anonymity” will be included in this anthology, and big thanks to Rachel and Cleis Press.

I want to add that while I love, of course, announcing things such as this here, there have, as I mentioned in my last post, been other topics on which I am wanting to blog lately that I have not yet. I have felt somewhat tied up lately (ha!…okay, sorry…pun not really intended, but when it occurred to me I apparently chose not to resist using it ; )) in a number of areas, but I just wanted to mention that I plan to catch up on blogging about these topics soon.

Thanks, as always, for visiting and reading! : )


Carly was breathless, her chest moving perceptibly as she pulled air in through her mouth. She did not remember when her mouth had fallen open, or when her breath had turned to gasps. Her panting, though silent, mirrored David’s as he backed away from Nate. She watched as he attended to undoing the restraints holding Nate’s wrists. She wondered if they were done.

They were not.
