I don’t know how I kept this tour going. Oh yes I do — barely.
My life is Diana Ross upside down. After being grounded nuclear family-style for the past several years, all my stuff has been sold, given away or is in storage, and I am utterly mobile. I’m working on my small press, a documentary that will screen in a few months, several works of fiction, still contributing nonfiction to a couple of publications, and getting ready to travel half of Florida promoting my book — and it’s a big fucking state. I need a low-maintenance lifestyle right now and a 4-bedroom house in the country wasn’t providing that.
If it weren’t for the extremely-fucking-brilliant writers who make up Girls Who Score, I would not have set up a blog tour. But exactly because I was blessed enough, not only to have some of the most prolific, intelligent, well-known, admired, and respected erotica authors in the world, but all the authors that I personally admire in a geeky, fan-girlish way, contribute a story, I would have been remiss if I hadn’t. Each of the writers in this book has made me come…very far in my admiration for them. I would like to thank them for making my first foray into the hallowed halls of editordomshipness a very easy process. You will always be my starting lineup.
I would also like to thank Cleis Press for two things. One, for actually giving a shit about what they print. This is very important, for many publishers of erotica do not. And second, for taking a chance with me (still not sure how that happened, but I thank whoever drugged the coffee that day — I owe you big time).
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading excerpts from Girls Who Score enough to read the entire book. I think it is one of the best collections of lesbian erotica this year. And I’d be saying that even if Cleis wasn’t paying me.
