I haven’t yet received my contributor copies of The Sweetest Kiss, but I smile every time I see this book cover pop up in the rotation in my sidebar. For someone who has had a lifelong love of vampires, it was a real thrill to have my story “Cutter” accepted by D.L. King for this collection of vampire erotica. Especially since this was a hard story to write. Vampires and vampire lore are such a part of popular culture that it’s very difficult to write something fresh. I hope I accomplished that—obviously D.L. and Cleis Press thought I did.
In all the craziness of this year, I had kind of forgotten that I had contemplated spinning “Cutter” into a novel. I had to develop such a back story for the female human protagonist that I found myself thinking about her long after I submitted the story. I still think she would make a great anti-hero for a series. I need to revisit the idea when my life calms down a little. Or just when I’m not pregnant anymore and get my creative energy back.
