Wow, Geek Love has become the 10th most-funded fiction project and the highest backed fiction anthology in the history of Kickstarter! Ain’t that amazing? With just a few days left until the project is closed to backers, I hear the next $ target is to make editors, Shanna Germain and Janine Ashbless, explode with excitement.
I got a geeky thrill last week when I learned my short story, Black Gold, has been accepted for the collection. And I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons in my life!
Geek Love, is both an ebook and a limited edition, full-colour, hardback of erotic fic, art, photography and comics, and will be out late 2012. The project is still open to art submissions but do not send them anymore sexy gals in glasses! As ever, there is a shortage of hot dudes to display.
Black Gold is a story I wrote a few years ago for an anthology that didn’t quite happen. It’s a dystopian, bondage-and-coffee piece that I never tried subbing elsewhere, partly because I forgot about it, partly because I thought it was just too, shall we say, unusual for most anthologies. Like a true geek, my poor story languished on the periphery, unable to fit in, until fellow geeks welcomed it with open arms!
Geek Love will be funded on the 27th Sept. If you want to be part of it, go pledge some Kickstarter cash, and a gorgeous geeky reward will soon be yours!
And in the meantime, let’s celebrate this nerd-tastic project with some awesome robot pr0n:
The first story in this mini-anthology ‘My Ass is Your Ass is My Ass’ by Kristina Lloyd had me from the get-go. Not just because it was kinky (and I mean really very dirty), but mostly (seriously) because of the stellar writing.
I can’t even remember where the sample ended (I tried to because I wanted to use it to illustrate my point in this blog post), because all I wanted to do was continue reading. I didn’t care how much I had to pay for it ($4.49 on Amazon, I learned later), I just wanted to have it on my Kindle and finish reading it. Kristina, you’ve got yourself a new fan. Read more
On Facebook last week I was involved in an exciting race against the clock as I scrambled to download a clip from a UK TV show before its availability expired. The clip featured a fun bit of identity confusion between the actor, Jeremy Edwards, and our very own erotic fic author, Jeremy Edwards. You can read a great write up of the drama, in which I get to ride a black stallion and am referred to as ‘Joan d’Arc on amphetamine’, on Billierosie’s blog.
The clip is on YouTube but seems as if it’s now only viewable outside of the UK so eyes left for the screen grab if you’re this side of the pond.
And this morning I learned four short stories of mine will appear in Maxim Jakubowki’s ‘Mammoth Book of Erotic Quickies’, out in 2013. Four! Go me!
This post was brought to you by a woman dithering over writing the final chapter in her novel.
Appropriately enough, we’ve been sitting on this piece of ass news for ages. And we can now reveal that Susie Bright – yes, SUSIE BRIGHT! (seen here smoking a bong on Six Feet Under!) – is making our anal anthologies Audible!
I’m thrilled and astonished by how successful and popular these ebooks have become, and to have someone as awesome as Susie Bright backing our behinds is more than I ever imagined for these stories. Our three book bundle will also be available digitally and as a POD you can fondle. More news on release dates when we get them!
And just look at this lush line up of Cleis covers:
|Out November 2012||Out January 2013||Out NOW!|
And Bound By Lust is currently on tour! This Friday (June 22), I’ll be stopping by Kristina Wright’s blog to share a little about my BBL story, No Sleep, while hoping much comedy confusion arises from us sharing a first name. And on the following Friday (June 29), I’ll be ordering in tea and cakes/adult beverages, and playing host to Nikki Magennis.
I hope you’ll be able to join us!
My next and fourth novel, Thrill Seeker, will be published in March 2013 and, yikes, it’s already listed on Amazon UK even though I haven’t written it yet. Thrill Seeker is about a virgin college student who meets a billionaire dom with long fingers… I jest! It’s a secret.
My fifth novel will be published in 2014.
And my first Black Lace novel from 1998, Darker Than Love, is being re-issued as part of the imprint’s Classics line. DTL will be re-jacketed and re-released in December 2012 which means, oh no, farewell to the cover with the comedy tits and collagen lips. How sad!
Portia Da Costa, is back with Black Lace too so I know I’m in great company. I also know the covers will be completely gorgeous (I’m lucky enough to have been given a sneak preview) and will feature hot men. With heads and everything!
And so to celebrate, in addition to popping champagne, here’s a pop shot!
Forty years ago today, at Brighton Dome, Pink Floyd played Dark Side of the Moon live for the very first time. So it’s a good day to announce that my story, Dark Side of the Moon, has been selected to appear in Maxim Jakubowski’s Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 11. This anthology won’t hit the shelves until 2013 but check out my brand new page giving the lowdown on all the books in our Annual Anal Erotica Ebook series from where DSOTM was plucked.
Inspired by Jeremy Edwards, I’m having a round up of recent acceptances.
The Last Dance will be appearing in Kristina Wright’s fairy tale erotica romance anthology, Lustfully Ever After, out in June this year.
I’ll have a short in Racy Page’s Stretched called All My Lovers in One Room. Not sure when.
And, much joy, I’ll have three pieces in Alison Tyler’s third anthology with Harlequin, out in July or August this year.
More on the stories nearer publication time. Isn’t that a lovely cover?
