My new e-book and a story from Ravenous Romance

I will have more to say about my (mixed) thoughts on e-publisher Ravenous Romance later (it's on my endless, hateful to do list, which means in all likelihood I may not get to it til 2010, but we'll see).

For now, I wanted to share that they just released my e-book anthology The Lust Chronicles, one where most of the authors were culled from Twitter and elsewhere on the Internets. It's great to be able to publish new authors and friends and since I got my start in erotica land with true stories in my books Up All Night and later First-Timers, plus all those early true stories I wrote, I feel like it's fitting. Though I still have my fingers and toes crossed that the publishing fairies smile down on me in 2009 and someone green lights my proposal for my True Sex Confessions anthology! (A girl can dream...)

So here's the cover and Table of Contents for that:

Oh, and this is the cover they were going to give me that I was pretty horrified by. Thankfully, with e-publishers unlike print ones (coughHaworthAlysoncough), you can make your case, and I did, and they listened!

Also, my editor Lori Perkins has included my lesbian stripper shoe story, inspired by a particularly awesome pair I saw in St. Paul this summer, in her anthology Sex & Shoes, which is also only $4.99. Recession smut pricing, people!

Speaking of shoes, Stacie Joy took this photo of my new ones last night:

Hi Rachel,

I love the new shoes! Hmmm...those look like a size six to me. It's a good thing I don't live close, b/c I would be begging to borrow. :-)

I didn't realise epublishers were more malleable than print when it came to cover design. That's really interesting given the huge growth in ebooks. And with writers taking a bigger royalties %, the whole deal seems more democratic.

Agree with you on the first cover of LC - it's terrible. Glad you got them to change it. Well done!

I'm curious about Ravenous. I've only read one of their stories so far. They're on my list to explore, y'know, sometime.

It's great to find a fun shoe style in a good color. I love black, but enough already.

But more importantly, I have the perfect outfit for those stockings! Thanks for giving me the idea.
