Well, I'd said before that I'd have some big news to announce soon, so here's the first announcement. A story of mine has been picked for inclusion in Susie Bright's Best American Erotica anthology. This is a yearly publication which highlights a multitude of sex writing. BAE 2006 featured works by John Updike, David Sedaris, Tom Perrotta, Steve Almond, and Gwen Masters, among others.
I'm a longtime fan of Susie Bright, and of this series. When I first started writing, I didn't have aspirations, goals, or dreams. I just started typing away to tell a story. Once I began seeking publication, the Best American Erotica series was a benchmark for me. I honestly never thought I'd actually get there. But it was a dream to have, something to strive for. I'm now humbled and honored and so very grateful that one of my stories is going to be included in the 2007 edition.
