Something Special For Sommer Fundraiser

I've always been so amazed at the creativity, generosity and all-around wonderfulness of the erotica community, even though, you know, a lot of proper people call us other things. Well, the Something Special for Sommer Fundraiser is a particularly wonderful and generous thing. Sommer's husband is going through chemotherapy and insurance doesn't cover it right now. Lots of erotica writers have donated books and other goodies. I donated one of my very last paperback copies of Amorous Woman, which was bought by the awesome erotica writer Teresa Noelle Roberts, so I can no longer try to tempt you with that, but there are plenty of other awesome books and ways to help. Please head over and check it out!

Married Sex Is VERY Hot!

What's the most taboo subject in erotica? For me, the answer is red-hot sex between people who are married to each other! That's why I am especially delighted to be part of Kristina Wright's Bedded Bliss: A Couple's Guide to Lust Ever After. This book is a genuine treasury--each chapter opens with an essay by the editor on topics such has "growing your lust together," "lust after parenthood," and "middle-aged lust" (that's me!), followed by fiction from the A-list of erotica writers (and me!). Spiced with inspiring suggestions, intelligent observations, and delicious eros, Bedded Bliss will bring real joy to your real sex life with your real partner. Imagine that! In fact, reclaiming the pleasure of marital sexuality is a revolutionary act--I have my copy on the nightstand for regular reference. For the revolution!

A Writer's Mid-Career Crisis

I've been going through a bit of a fallow period with my writing for the last several months. In this month's ERWA column, "Validation, Desire, and Other Reasons to Write," I muse about the reasons I wrote at the start of my writing adventure (mostly validation through publication) and how I'm ready for a big change. Let me know what you think!
