I know I neglect this blog for stretches at at time and I sometimes wonder if I’ve just fallen into a rut and need to climb out. I’ve contemplated revamping my website—new look, new attitude, maybe?—but I have neither the time nor the money right now. Or maybe I just have too much other stuff on my plate and a lot of the stuff I would normally post here finds its way over to Facebook as shorter, more manageable status updates.  In any case, I will try to be a better blogger and also share some of my other writings around the internet.

Right now, I’m guest blogging pretty much everywhere for Dream Lover when I’m not reading submissions for Best Erotic Romance 2012.  If you are so inclined, you can stop by the Borders True Romance blog today and post a comment for a chance to win a copy of Dream Lover: Paranormal Tales of Erotic Romance! 

From my Borders True Romance post:

This collection was a labor of love as I have been interested in the paranormal since I read my first Stephen King novel as a young teenager. The appeal of the otherworldly (or underworldy) cannot be denied. To step outside our own reality and explore the farthest reaches of our imaginations to discover the creatures of the night, the magic in the ether—oh, it makes my heart beat faster just to think of the possibilities! And so I’m delighted to present Dream Lover: Pararnormal Tales of Erotic Romance to you. I hope the stories in this anthology will haunt your dreams as they have haunted mine—in the best possible way!

I had so much fun putting this book together. I hope it finds a wide readership among erotic romance fans.

Guest Blog at Night Owl Romance!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011 • 2 Comments on Guest Blog at Night Owl Romance!

I’m guest blogging over at Night Owl Romance today, talking about writing and editing erotic romance:

The draw of the paranormal creatures is in their ability to transcend reality and take us to a place we can only imagine. Vampires, werewolves and their brethren let us readers live on the knife-sharp edge of violence, sacrifice, blood and hot (dangerous) sex. Shapeshifters let us slip free of our own mortal existence for a time and experience life in a different skin; ghosts ask us to believe in that which we cannot see. And, oh!, how we want to believe! We want to believe in magic, in fate, in things beyond our normal day-to-day existence. We want to believe in heroes who have fangs and claws and the virility of a wild beast. We want to believe in the fairy tales and legends of our youth—and we want it all tied up with a romantic bow and sealed with an erotic kiss.

I received pretty pretty postcards this morning from my publisher Cleis Press this morning. I new Dream Lover was going to be featured, along with D.L. King’s Carnal Machines and Delilah Devlin’s Girls Who Bite, but I didn’t know they were also going to include Fairy Tale Lust and Steamlust.  Wow! I stared at this postcard for a bit this morning, wondering when I had time to work on three anthologies—and realized that as of this week I’m up to five—I have a shiny new contract for a shiny new anthology!  Call for submissions coming soon.
