Sexually explicit writing? Yawn. You can find it all over the internet these days, and most of it is bad. Rehashed cliches, fronted by grinning, big-breasted blondes and nude male torsos etched in steroids. But the real sexual revolution is still only just beginning. And I mean honest, thoughtful--and still very hot--writing about real sex, which is always more magical and transporting than any warmed-over fantasy.
That's why I'm so excited to be part of Ageless Erotica, edited by Joan Price, the diva of life-long sexual pleasure. My story, "Invitation to Lunch," keeps company with a stellar list of eroticists, including Cheyenne Blue, Bill Noble, D.L. King, I.G. Frederick, Kate Dominic, Robin Sampson, Susan St. Aubin, and more, baby, many more!
I'll be posting an excerpt soon as the celebration of a life of luscious sex continues! Stay tuned....

Happy President's Day! What better occasion to contemplate the future of erotica writing for new authors? I got my start publishing my first stories in online under the guidance of wonderful editors at Clean Sheets, Scarlet Letters and Oysters and Chocolate. All have now faded into free-speech history. (Only The Erotic Woman remains, but they're still awesome). Check out this month's column at The Erotica Readers and Writers Association, "The Death of the Erotica Webzine."
