Jerotic (who’s a good buddy of this blog, showing up here and there, now and again) sends my way:
Hello, everyone! Here’s a summary (because the weather is summery) of some recent JE publication news.
Tasting Her: Oral Sex Stories, edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, is now available, as is the companion book, Tasting Him. My piece in "Her" (ooh, that sounds … nice) is called "Cavanaugh’s Ridge." As it happens, I’ve been reading all the other writers’ stories over the past few days, and having a most wonderful time. The roster includes, among others, Lisette Ashton, Emerald, Shanna Germain, Sommer Marsden, Gwen Masters, Craig J. Sorensen, Donna George Storey, Alison Tyler, and Kristina Wright!
Meanwhile, my story "Any Friend of Hers" appears in a new Xcite books collection called Satisfy Me. [Cue "Satisfaction" guitar riff: enh-enh, enhnenhNENH-enhnenhnenhnenhnenh …] I’m sharing a table of contents with Elizabeth Cage and Kristina Wright in this one!
And coming up (like a flower–remember that song?) …
I was recently given the opportunity of participating in a wonderful program called Burlesque Against Breast Cancer. And, being the way I am, I had stripped down to my rudiments before I realized that the commodity under discussion was a display of Jeremy writing, not a display of Jeremy flesh. So I got dressed again and wrote a story … and I’m delighted to announce that it will be included in Ultimate Burlesque, a volume of burlesque-themed erotica that will benefit Macmillan Cancer Support. The book is being edited by Emily Dubberley and Alyson Fixter of Scarlet magazine, and will be published by Xcite. Authors include Portia Da Costa, Maxim Jakubowski, Kristina Lloyd, Nikki Magennis, Donna George Storey, and Alison Tyler!
Early in ’09, my story "Francine’s Kid" will be published in Coming Together: At Last (ed. Alessia Brio), a two-volume collection of erotica that will benefit the heroic human-rights organization Amnesty International. Each story in this collection involves characters who are different races from each other sharing love/sex/lust. The book’s release is intentionally timed around Martin Luther King Day. Erotica, racial harmony, Dr. King, human rights … I’m damn proud to be part of this! And I’m damn proud to be between the double covers with writers like Jolie Du Pré, Sacchi Green, Saskia Walker, and Allison Wonderland!
And I’m also super-excited to be able to say that a piece of mine called "Human" has been selected for inclusion in an anthology put together by the folks at Oysters & Chocolate! This collection will be released by NAL/Penguin in May, 2009. The O&C website is the home to a number of my stories, and I’m thrilled to be part of the first O&C book. (I don’t know the table of contents for this one yet.)
from socks to fedora,
Hmmm …. I think I just might write to Jeremy and ask him for one of his little short stories to feature here. I mean, after all, it has been a while, and he certainly never disappoints. His writing is clever and sexy — with a scrumptious dose of whimsey that tickles my funny bone along with a few other of my parts. He also happens to be one heck-of-a nice guy. You, dear reader, should be gone now: off to add to your ever-growing erotica collection.
