Yes, "Get Up! Stand Up!" my first foray into the world of e-publishing, is not only in The Cougar Book, which is is a finalist for an EPIC 2011 ebook award,but is also a finalist in the Erotic Awards 2011.
The awards presentation will be followed by a wild and decadent "Night of the Senses" that sounds absolutely incredible.
Sadly I won't be able to attend. Hopefully, should I win, my flying penis will wing its way across the pond and into my waiting arms. I'm lining up my peeps to represent me and working feverishly on a short, sex-positive speech.
This is a charity event in aid of an organization called Outsiders, which works together with other groups to address the isolation faced by many disabled people, and to campaign for the acceptance of disabled people as sexual partners.
Because every adult deserves to have sex, don't you think? Well I sure do and I'm proud of me and my story, win or lose, for being part of something so meaningful and exciting.
Wish me luck! And let's all hope the event is a smashing success!

- While attending a summer writing workshop at Humber College, my tutor, D.M.Thomas, said that I write 'great sex without metaphor,which isn't easy to do.' I made my mind up to become an erotica writer. My first erotica novel, 'Wild Card' was published in 2006. A section from the novel was selected by Scarlet Magazine for 'best oral sex scene' and, as a friend pointed out, an award-winning author was born! My second Black Lace novel, 'Amanda's Young Men' was released in the UK in July, 2008 and in North America in March, 2009. My third novel for Black Lace, 'Sarah's Education,' was published July 2, 2009 in the UK and briefly hit the number one spots on Amazon.co.uk's adult fiction and adult romance best seller lists. It became available in North America on September 1, 2009. Jade Magazine bestowed the 'best cover art, 2009' award on 'Sarah's Education'. In 2009 Humber College invited me to speak at the summer writers' workshop on a panel called, 'Success Stories.' And so the circle closes.
