From the ashes a fire shall be woken:
Forgive me for quoting a poem from The Lord of the Rings, but I'm so pleased that I've lost my (at best) precarious grasp upon my dignity.
A few weeks back Xcite books announced that they intended to step up and fill some of the market gap left by the freeze at Black Lace.
They've just taken a big step in that direction by signing up Adam Nevill, the ex-editor at BL, to manage and commission their erotica line from October. Full report here. That means Adam's going to carry on being a kick-ass erotica editor as well as a writer - And for us scribblers there's some light in the darkness!
BTW, I found this out via Twitter first of all. Not that I'm on Twitter, but I saw it in Charlotte Stein's sidebar. So just for today let me say Twitter is a great idea.
