I couldn’t help myself – I went to visit the Big Book of Bondage at Powell’s books. It’s not my first published work, but it is the first book to be stocked at Powell’s. It was quite a thrill to see it on the shelves.
I’m excited to be a part of this collection for a number of reasons – not least of which is that every story is a gem. You should really get a copy!
Still on the fence? Here’s a great review of my story, Senseless.
Exciting news abounds! The Big Book of Bondage is now available – find it at Amazon, Powell’s, or your favorite book seller.
I also have good news for all you folks who’ve been asking about samples of my work – one of my stories has been published on the Oysters and Chocolate website, and you can read it for free! Go read The Only Real Girl on the Internet now!
While I’ve got your attention – just a bit of housekeeping – you’ve got until the end of the month to send in your Missed Connections stories, so get cracking and finish up!

Remember my cello music teaser from a few months ago? I’m thrilled to announce my story, Well Played, is being published in Strummed, a music themed anthology by Sweetmeats Press.
Here’s a synopsis teaser:
Isabel has the opportunity of a lifetime and she knows it. She isn’t about to do anything to spoil her chance at this job, but behaving herself around Kurt, the head of the cello section, is proving to be difficult. Every time he looks at her she feels weak in the knees and loses the ability to speak coherently. Isabel hasn’t been this gone for anyone since her teenage years and she can’t believe it’s happening now – especially with the man who could make or break her career. But when she listens to him play her whole world narrows down to the notes he pulls from his instrument and all she can think about is having his deft hands play her.
Tentative release date is early February – I’ll share cover art and further details as soon as I have them!
