More Donna Stories....

Now that my eight hundred cookies are baked and gifted, except for those in the "cookie buffet" tins in my dining room--come on over for dessert tonight and help yourself!--I wanted to mention a few places where you can hear/read some of my work that has not been available to the public before.

The first is a video of my reading at Good Vibrations on Sunday, October 18. Rachel Kramer Bussel took this footage on her phone! Just think of how cell phone cameras and video recorders have changed the way we enjoy our erotica.... Anyway, if you couldn't be there, this is definitely the next best thing. You can check out my "reader's theatre" style of looking in different directions to distinguish different speakers. Dumb or effective? You be the judge!

The other news is the publication of my story, "Spider" at the Erotic Woman. This story originally appeared in Alison Tyler's E is for Exotic and was reprinted in the Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 8. But this is the first time it's available online, so be there or be... all tied up in a sticky web naked. Actually, I was just reading a book about Christmas in Ukraine and spiders are considered to be good luck because they wove their webs over the baby Jesus' manger and when he awoke, the first thing he saw was the light glistening on the drops of dew on the elaborate webs, so he smiled. Which ordinary babies do at six weeks or so, but what's another miracle or two in the Christmas story?

Speaking of Christmas, because I am a "finish up the job" type of person, I'm planning to post abridged entries for my summer vacation this week, including my trip to the Christmas Museum in Paradise, PA. Better late than never, eh? In the meantime, come on over to the buffet and have a cookie or eight!

I sure hope that picture is Photoshopped.

Was the spider behind the washing machine about that big? bigger?

Jeremy Edwards said...

I love what you do with your facial expressions, eye directions, etc. Brava!

Thanks, Jeremy! And Herr Doktor, I'd say my spider was about the same size, but its legs were fatter and hairy. I sure hope the picture was Photoshopped, too, but it's perfect for the story!
