Scarlet magazine winner for Best Oral Sex Scene

I awoke to a nice surprise this morning, I received an email telling me that a scene from 'Wild Card' had been chosen by Scarlet Magazine for 'best oral sex scene'. What fun! Other authors who won include Madelynne Ellis, Portia Da Costa, Mathilde Madden and Alison Tyler, so I'm in great company!

I broke a bone in my left hand in September so I haven't been working as much as I usually do and it's made me a little nutty. If I don't get to put my imagination to constructive use I can get weird, so it's been great to be back at work. I've had to tape my baby finger to the one next to it so I don't reach for the q or z and stress the bone - metacarpal bone, to be exact. I must say I'd not realised how much my typing speed has to do with my writing process.

But I'm happily pounding out the lurid prose again. My short story 'Hurting Hugh' will be appearing in an upcoming publication edited by Mitzi Szereto. I'll post the final title when I know it, but it's a book of Women's Revenge stories. It'll appear under my pen name Madeline de Chambrey.

The Erotic Authors Association is in flux as it passes from one administration to another, so I've been keeping an eye on what's happening there.

My first royalties cheque will arrive sometime in February. I'm excited by that - both by receving the money and finding out how many of my books have sold. It can be frustrating living in Canada and writing erotica as there are no Cdn presses producing erotica anthologies, and whenever there's an article about it in the local paper, writers from the UK and USA are quoted because the Canadian writers working in the genre aren't known here. I'm trying to change that!

The snow's falling as I write. These short, cold days of winter are perfect for staying in and hitting the keyboard, and that's what I intend to do. Wish me luck.

Ha ha! I found you!

Congrats on your Scarlet win, and may it be the first of many awards.

I'm so sorry to hear about the injury to your hand. I have RSI, so I know how frustrating it can be when typing causes pain. I hope your metacarpal heals up quickly and you can get back up to speed and write up a storm!

I'm going to add you to my blogroll right now!

Love

Congratulations on the Scarlet win :)

Writing erotica in Australia is very similar, not much happening here.

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I
think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

I'm looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
