Contributor copies for Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 were sent out a long time ago by the ever awesome Cleis Press, however as I’m in Australia, I’m used to my copies taking longer than usual. I had it in my head they’d arrived, but could I find them? No.

They turned up today. Seems my partner collected the mail and chucked it on the front seat of the ute, where it became buried under a mishmash of shopping bags, rolls of duct tape, screws, small tools, and more than a few wrappers from the fastfoodchainthatshallnotbenamed.

However Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 emerged from the debris today (along with a now overdue water rates bill) and I’m looking forward to reading. Edited by Kathleen Warnock, it has stories by some of my favorite writers including Teresa Noelle Roberts, Catherine Lundoff, and Xan West, as well as writers that are new to me (but not for much longer).

My story “Run, Jo, Run” is included as well, which is inspired by my days of fell running in the UK. However I’m not half the runner that Jo and Carys are! (I wish).
