Me

Jaw, Meet Floor

I got my check today for the forthcoming reprint of "Comeback" in The Best American Erotica 2007, and I must say, being paid upon acceptance rocks so much harder than being paid upon publication. The money's nice whenever it comes in, of course, but having it on hand sooner rather than later is a welcome change from my experiences with other publications. Especially the ones that publish my work without having sent me a contract, let alone a check. *ahem*

Anyway, editor Susie Bright included the line-up of authors for the forthcoming edition, and my jaw hit the floor. Repeatedly. This is the first time (and hopefully not the last time) I'll be sharing a Table of Contents with such heavyweights as Octavia Butler, Kathryn Harrison and Nalo Hopkinson. Color me pleased, and more than a little bowled over.

I should write more erotica. It does better and gets noticed by more people than my horror stuff.
