I just got some great news from the editors of The Garden of the Perverse: Fairy Tales for Twisted Adults. The publication date has been moved up from the fall to April 2006, so my story "Virgin Ear" will hit the stores six months sooner. You can pre-order the book at Amazon now (it has a great cover). It has been so cool to work with Sage Vivant and M. Christian, both of whom played key roles in the erotica revolution, the worthy cause of elevating dirty stories to the realm of literary art. If you think about it, erotica really has come a long way in the past decade or so, thanks to the skill and imagination of writers like these. Sure, it sounds hokey, but because of them, and many of the other editors and writers I've worked with (see Jolie du Pre's list below), sexy and smart are no longer necessarily mutually exclusive.
So anyway, my twisted fairy tale contribution to the anthology is actually based on a real event from my college days. Yes, I do have only one virgin ear--my right one. But I won't give away the story yet!
