Sale! - The Ingénue

They're coming thick and fast - just the way I like 'em! Short story sales, that is  ;-)

I've just signed the contract for my short story The Ingénue, which is to appear in Best Bondage Erotica 2011, edited by cupcake goddess Rachel Kramer Bussel and out in December this year. Yip yip yipeee!!

I don't write huge amounts of bondage erotica, as I've confessed before - it's not that I don't like it, it's just I find the vocabulary difficult. But I saw this panel in an Oglaf strip:

And I was, um .... inspired.

I know Emerald is also between the covers with me in this anthology, but I don't know the rest of the lineup yet. Anyone?

That's great, Janine. I keep letting these great deadlines pass me by unwritten - I think I noticed that one... ah well.

Beg her to what???

I think I love the Bitch Queen best :)

I do love the bitch queen, but by the time this became the story I wrote down, it had twisted into something quite different. No bitch queen, but a story about the art of corruption, and topping from below...

Blimey Janine, you're unstoppable!
Great news (for you, and us). Love the cover.

Emerald said...

I look forward to reading it! And congratulations! Again I'm delighted to be sharing pages with you. :)

I think the cover's rather great, too, Kat! And the delight is mutual, Emerald
