Wait....what?

It's 2015 and I'm sure I say this at the start of every year but where did last year go? I think I blinked and missed quite a bit of it!

So as usual here is my yearly recap (I may have to start doing one in the middle of the year also to make sure I realise so much time has gone!).

2014 saw many different projects coming to the end and some exciting ones getting started. It was the year my anthologies started to hit the shelves and if anyone had told me that by the end of 2014 I'd have had two anthologies that I'd edited published and three more in the pipeline I'd have never believed it!

The year started with the publication of Three's Company an anthology about threesomes (or sometimes more) it contains my story Taking a Chance. Then it was closely followed by my first anthology Coming Together: Through the Storm, all proceeds of that anthology goes to Mercy Corps and was created to raise money for the typhoon stricken Philippines. After that came Valves & Vixens the first in my series of Steampunk Anthologies. Inspired by one of the stories submitted in Coming Together: Through the Storm the anthology brings together steampunk and erotica what could be better?

As well as those there was: XOXO (containing SO Oft Beguiled), Be My Valentine-XOXO (the print release), Girl Play 2, More Smut for Chocoholics (containing The Competition), Valves & Vixens (my second anthology of the year), The Big Book of Submission: 69 Kinky Tales (containing Lost in the Feeling), The House of Erotica (containing The First Flight), Perfect Proportions (containing Perfect Proportions).

This year also brought new covers for: Wandering Lust, Sun Sea & Seduction and Reigning in Sarah.

Phew! So what does 2015 bring?

Well Cosmic Encounters my science fiction anthology will be out soon, Valves & Vixens 2 is currently in the editing process. I've got a story in an anthology coming out in March time and there will be an announcement about further anthology calls coming soon so watch this space!

The Big Book of Submission Blog Tour

You've all heard of a bucket list? It's the list of amazing things that you would like to do before you kick the bucket. Well as a writer I have over the years developed a writing list. This is the list of publications and publishers I have wanted to work with and am working toward being published by. Near the top of the list was Rachel Kramer Bussel and with the publication of The Big Book of Submission it's one that can be crossed off (although I hope not permanently!) as inside the book is my story Lost in the Feeling.

The anthology is a collection of 69 kinky tales of submission and is seriously packed with great authors, both new to publication and those that have been published before. You can literally pick this book up, open it up on page and dive straight in. The stories are short and provide little flashes into the world of the submissive.

Rachel has picked a wide variety of stories in this anthology so as long as you like submission you will definitely find something that you like in here.

Of course sometimes people don't have time to read and trust me once you start reading you're going to want to carry on. However there is a solution for that! As with a number of Rachel's previous anthologies Rose Caraway is going to be turning it into an audio book. So if you have no time to read you can just put on the audio-book and listen no matter where you are (although it is possibly advised to not drive at the same time if any of Rose's & Rachel's previous books are anything to go on!


Now stop reading this and go read the book!

(and there will be pictures put up here once I have a strong enough internet - so watch this space!)
