3 of my books, Tasting Him: Oral Sex Stories, Tasting Her: Oral Sex Stories, and Best Sex Writing 2009 are 2009 Independent Publisher Book Awards (IPPY) Semifinalists! Woo-hoo!
And for those who are curious...I personally paid and submitted 4 of my books (those three and Spanked) because I felt it was important. The way I see it, that money investment is worth it because if my book or books win, it's a big coup for me and my publisher. So, fingers crossed!
