MetroCard essay, hot bondage cover, and some reading recommendations

I've been a little out of sorts lately, trying to get my writing mojo back. One step toward that was writing this personal essay, "The Carefully Considered MetroCard", for The Billfold, an awesome site about money and finances. I'm working on various projects, including wrapping up Best Bondage Erotica 2013, which has a very hot cover, as seen below, and Best Sex Writing 2013, both out in December, and reading for my orgasm and anal sex anthologies (deadline is June 1st for those and I hope you will send me a story!). I'm gearing up for Book Expo America and I'm reading on June 6th at Bluestockings for a night of lesbian erotica and my own reading for the just-released Suite Encounters: Hotel Sex Stories on June 8th, which is my latest event a while (upcoming: I'm moderating a panel on sex writing in San Francisco on August). Some of my books have won some awards, which is cool, but I am too focused on what I'm working on right now to post everything. The Curvy Girls virtual book tour has been kicking ass and you can follow the blogs via these links. And you can read my When Harry Met Sally-inspired story "I'll Have What She's Having" completely FREE in the ebook anthology Exposure (free for a limited time) and if you're the writing type, you should check out the Mischief Books calls for submissions (4,000 word or longer short stories).

Hopefully I will have some good writing news to share soon, and if not, I'll keep on writing! Or typing, as they say in the fun, lighthearted YA beach read novel Messy I just read by The Fug Girls Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. If you're a YA type, that and Kieran Scott's This Is So Not Happening, which deals with teen pregnancy from the point of view of two teenagers whose lives are adjacent to the pregnancy. If you are looking for a traditional romance, try Sarah Mayberry's totally worth it $2.99 e-book Her Best Worst Mistake, which I discovered via this great romance recommendations list. And, of course, I'm food porn blogging away (will be back to my usual speed soon) at Cupcakes Take the Cake, about things like the Mario Tennis Open and Memorial Day.



I've also been cooking a little bit. I made baked kale chips using Smitten Kitchen's recipe and they were delicious, and right now I have an apple crisp in the oven! I plan to check out my friend Emily's recipes at Nomnivorous soon too.


my December bondage book hotness!


how could a messy blogger like me not love a dishy YA novel called Messy about blogging? (Yes, I would love to hire someone to blog for me...probably wouldn't actually do it, but it was fun to read about)
