My views on cupcakes

... are available at Rachel Kramer Bussel's cupcake blog. I believe that if the world had more of these kinds of blogs, wars would be rendered unnecessary. But hey, that's just me.

Because my podcast "Four Minutes, Once a Week," seemed to do so well, I decided to start a new podcast -- this time with longer stories (because four minutes is nice, but may not always be enough for ... completion, you know?).

The new podcast, "She Makes Up Stories," will offer at least two stories each month that will run anywhere from 25 to 40 minutes each. You can subscribe to all of them for just $24.99 annually or purchase individual episodes for $1.99. Best of all, it's all through's Wordcast -- so you know the quality and ease-of-use will be top-notch.

You can go have a listen to my first one, "Beverly's Pastime," and see if you want more. Part two of that story will be posted in the next few days -- as soon as I can get M. Christian to read his part! :)

Ladies, if you've been looking for an intelligent, sexy, comprehensive site that addresses the aspects of life, love, and sex that you actually care about (as opposed to finding merely interesting!), there's a great new site out there called The Erotic Woman. I do not exaggerate when I say that I have yet to see such a beautifully produced site targeted to women. And that's why I'm so proud to be a columnist for them! Some of my fiction is posted there, as well. The team behind The Erotic Woman is talented and not prone to underestimating the expectations of its audience. Please check it out -- even if you are male!

A lovely review of AMAZONS!

Many thanks to author Lisabet Sarai, who wrote a very nice review of AMAZONS: SEXY TALES OF STRONG WOMEN at one of my favorite sites, The Erotica Readers and Writers Association.
You know, it's no picnic reviewing erotica anthologies...! I'm serious -- every one is just so very different and there are bound to be stories that just don't resonate with every reader. There's a tendency among reviewers to react to the sexual aspects of the stories rather than their inventiveness or emotional hook -- if the reviewer isn't turned on, the book gets a bad review. Lisabet does a terrific job, though, and considers more than the sex scenes when she evaluates the individual stories as well as the book as a whole. So, I'd just like to say "Thanks, Lisabet, for understanding the peculiaities of erotic fiction!" (And she should understand it -- she writes enough of it! Be sure to check out any of her novels -- you'll be in for a great read.)
