Talking Dirty

I’m anxiously waiting my contributor copy of Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women to arrive.  I hear it’s hot—and with the lineup Rachel Kramer Bussel has put together, I don’t doubt it.  Some of my favorite dirty girls are represented—Shanna Germain, Alison Tyler, Gwen Masters, Teresa Noelle Roberts… just to name a few!

I accidentally came across this Twitter comment by Viviane to my editor mentioning my story, “Beautiful Creature.”  That made me smile—and immediately start following Viviane!  I love Twitter

Viviane is kicking off a “virtual book tour” for Dirty Girls at her blog Sex Carnival, so drop by and read an excerpt of Rachel’s story “Icy Hot.”

Rachel has also set up a Dirty Girls blog, featuring interviews, upcoming readings and other fun stuff!  I only wish I could go to one of the readings in New York or San Francisco.

It’s going to get dirty around here this spring—bring on the April showers!
