Award nominations for my books!

Just got word of these nominations from the National Leather Association International!

Congratulations to all the nominees and especially our publisher Cleis Press. Looking ahead, and kindof a longshot, but I nominated some of my books for the Erotic and Sexuality categories for the IPPY Awards (Independent Publisher awards) so keep your fingers crossed for me on those too.

Speaking of erotica, I will have much more to say soon, by the weekend at the latest, about Greta Christina's piece about the state of the erotic fiction anthology.

Direct from an email from Steve Vakesh, NLA-I Awards Chair:

Congratulations, Rachel! It's totally awesome news! And I can't wait to hear your take on the GC article. I have to say, I didn't agree with most of the points, like "Because there are so many erotic fiction anthologies, the talent pool is being diluted. It’s like expansion baseball: there are only so many seriously talented players in the world, and more teams means fewer talented players on each team."

I am always really impressed by the quality of writers out there. So many good ones with unique voices and perspectives.

XXX,
Alison
