I have neglected to talk about a recent acceptance. My story “Under the Southern Cross” will be included in “Cowboy Lust: Erotic Romance for Women” edited by Delilah Devlin.

In some ways this is a first for me — it’s my first “erotic romance” story as opposed to “erotica” (or smut or porn or literary erotica, or whatever label you care to slap on my stories). It was tons of fun to write this story, so much so, that when I finished I found it had ballooned to a whopping 3,000 words over the limit. Brutal editing ensued, and luckily Delilah liked the result enough to include it.

Here’s the droolworthy cover:

And here’s the Table of Contents and introduction from Delilah. “Veteran erotica writer”? Moi? Well my first published erotica story was in 2001, so I guess that makes me a veteran in this game! 😀
