survived!

The second concert went really well, though the audience was about the same size as the group of choir and instrumentalists. Wednesday night, not a big concert night in the suburbs, it seems. Well, now we know. My ride wanted to leave before the reception, so I don't know how that went, but the food looked wonderful, and people were coming in, so I imagine it was as congenial as the one on Tuesday.

Tonight, I can go to bed early. Oh, the luxury.

new anthology!

I just got word that Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica vol. 7, edited by Maxim Jakubowski, is due from the printers shortly. It should be available in both the U.S. and the U.K. in early January. The listing is only up on Amazon.UK so far.

I will have a reprint of "Poppet" in the anthology.
