I’ve been holding this news in for a few days, but I’ve finally been given the go-ahead to spill the beans. Thank goodness. So, I won’t make you wait. I’ll just give it to you straight.

Ok, maybe I’ll make you wait a little. Are you ready to kick my butt yet? (Or have you already skipped ahead, and so aren’t reading this anyway?).

Ok, here it is, for real.

Holy crap, it gives me goosebumps just to say that!

The Rauxa Prize for Erotic Writing is this amazing and wonderful foundation that does great things for erotica, and erotica writers. Check out this year’s winners and runners-up for fiction and poetry — they’re amazing examples of erotic writing at its best. I’m honored to be among them, I’m honored to be recognized, and most of all, I’m delighted that there are organizations like this in the world, the lift up and celebrate the erotic spirit in all of us.
