Spanked and Hard

Or should that be spanked hard??

What a lame blogger. Nothing since February... I should be spanked. Speaking of spanked, my tale "Page by Page" got publisher acceptance from Cleis for Spanked: Red-Cheeked Erotica. It's edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. I'm stoked. Here's the cover:

And speaking of Cleis, Hard Hats is out.

Hard Hats
Gay Erotic Stories

Edited by Neil Plakcy

What is it about a hot guy with a tool belt?

With their natural brand of macho, the sheen of honest sweat on flesh, and the enticements of hammers and pneumatic drills, men with tool belts rank among the hottest icons in gay erotic fantasy. This collection of 21 stories celebrates those hardworking, hard-bodied hunks who construct our buildings, connect our cable TVs, and fix our furnaces. Ride to the top of an unfinished high rise for a raunchy steel-beam encounter. Head to the country where a road repair crew breaks in the new guy. Hang out with a lusty landscaper or sneak into the construction site RV for a quickie. Editor Neil Plakcy, a former construction site boss himself, has tapped the best of today's erotica writers for the steamy salute to those irresistible symbols of masculinity who keep the world tuned up—and turned on.

There's a five-star review at Amazon that has this to say about my story... "Former lovers meet for the first time in years, when they're helping a friend remodel his house. Original and poignant, this meaningful story gives us hints of their past, and hope for their future."

I've been wanting to spank you for quite some time. Lazy girl!

Awesome news about your acceptance and release. I guess I forgive you. :)

Thanks, Kate! It's hard to get back into the swing of things once you stop blogging. Working on it though...

I try to write all my posts on the weekend. Then it's just a matter of a few clicks to get them up. But then again, I don't blog paragraphs and paragraphs of witty commentary.
