Zane presents Caramel Flava

Zane's latest release is an anthology of Latin-themed erotica, called Caramel Flava. Lucky, lucky me -- one of my stories is included in it!

From the jacket:
Zane, the queen of erotic fiction and publisher of Strebor Books, an imprint of Atria Books/Simon & Schuster, presents the second in a series of collections of great erotic fiction. Based on the Featured Erotica section of her website,, which gets more than three million hits a year from around the world, these sensual tales, handpicked by Zane, are sure to please her fans.

These stories are written specifically with both African-American and Latino readers in mind, but they are for all people because as Zane always states: "Sensuality is universal." Among the contributors are names already familiar to readers of erotica, such as Tracee A. Hanna, Teresa Lamai, Michelle De Leon, Naleighna Kai, William Fredrick Cooper, and, of course, Zane -- as well as emerging voices, such as Pat Tucker, James W. Lewis, and Nikki Sinclair. (and me, Susan DiPlacido!)

Zane always selects stories that turn her on, and she guarantees they will turn you on, also. These storytellers take risks. The stories are unique and creative. The contributors to this book are great at what they do -- making readers hot.

A todos los amantes del mundo. No importa el color de su piel, la pasiĆ³n es universal.

(Translation: To all the lovers in the world. No matter what your skin color, passion is universal.)

I'm not sure I can find the words to describe how happy I am to be included in this book. It's such an honor to share pages with Zane and these other talented writers, and it's kind of mind-boggling how many people have the chance to read my story because of this. I'm extremely grateful to Zane.

My story in the collection is called "Found in Translation" and it's a hot little tale that takes place in Cuba.

Caramel Flava is now available online, and in bookstores everywhere shortly.
