I am so waiting impatiently for this collection to come out: The Mammoth Book of Threesomes and Moresomes, edited by Linda Alverez, published by Constable and Robinson Ltd. I have no idea who else is in the collection yet (any lurkers out there? Sing your own praises in the comments!) but I DO know that is includes one of my favorite stories I’ve ever written, “Remember This,” and I’ve been waiting a very, very long time to see it in print.

“Remember This” is one of those stories that took a while to find a home — like so many of my pieces, it’s real and sad and heartbreaking and sexy, and that makes it a harder sell to the erotica markets because a lot of erotic markets don’t want “too much reality” with their sex. And literary markets don’t want “too much sex” with their reality. This is a fine line that I walk on a daily basis, and I don’t often do it very well — a bit like a drunkard trying to find that thin white line on a dark road with the cop staring her down. Sometimes my foot lands perfectly in the middle, other times I’m all over the road.

So, I’m grateful when a publisher or editor takes a chance on my wanderings, says yes to those pieces that will likely break readers’ hearts as much as turn them on. The collection hits the streets this summer, July 29th, according to the web site, and I’m very much looking forward to holding it in my hot little hands.
