shameless behavior release party

Shameless Behavior: Brazen Stories of Overcoming Shame is out at last! It came out a couple of days earlier than I expected, actually.

I celebrated by downloading it and spending the day reading the whole thing. My favorite stories in it are 'Tamar,' 'Twin Scars' and 'Wet.' 'Tamar,' by Daniel Burnell, has a unique voice and lovely, transcendent imagery. 'Twin Scars,' by Axa Lee, perfectly captures the effect on a woman's sexuality of pregnancy, childbirth, and loss. 'Wet,' by Kyoko Church, confronts the pain suffered by a woman when a lover is disgusted by her body, and the confusion, hesitation, and ultimate healing when a new lover is aroused by the same (supposed) flaw. There are lots of other good stories in there. It's definitely worth the wait.

    1. Thank you, Huck!

      I was looking up the other authors who are in this anthology and found this post by Kyoko Church.

      She had a real, live, in-a-bookstore release party for her new erotic book with readings and everything. Sounds like so much fun, but how do you do it and maintain your secret identity?

    2. Thank you so much for your review, Sybil. I'm so glad you enjoyed the book and mentioned my story!

      As for how you maintain your secret identity at a book decide that you have to give up a little on the whole secret identity thing if you want to make this your career. Or at least that's what I did. It's totally scary... but so far it's been worth it!
