Mystery Solved

The UPS dude brought a package on Wednesday - 5 contributor's copies of Zane's Caramel Flava II, and a check. So I guess I am in it. (Unenthusiastic whoo hoo)

Exciting news - Coming Together Against the Odds is being released in print.

And Broadly Bound will be out soon. (I don't have a buy link yet)

Plus - I'll be on the road for a reading for Where The Girls Are in August. Info posted as soon as I have it.

A Big Win!

I just got an acceptance letter from Maxim Jakubowski for Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica 9! This is always an honor. Remittance Girl and Thomas Roche also announced that their stories will be included. Tough competition. Maxim said he received over 450 submissions. The last time I made it in was 6, so I'm very happy.

Huh. What do you know.

Well. Three years and zero answered emails later, Caramel Flava II is finally out. I have no idea if my story is in the final edition as the table of contents isn't available, and the publisher's site says nothing about contributors. No check. No contributor's copies in the mail. No communication. Oh, I have a signed contract, but pffft. I guess I'll have to traipse down to a bookstore and look through it to find out. As you can imagine, that's not high on my priority list.

Broadly Bound's First Review

Jean Roberta from Erotica Revealed reviews Broadly Bound.

Jean says:
Kathleen Bradean’s “Opening Night” focuses on a pair of performance artists, the submissive femme Carrie, who tells the story, and the androgynous Zell, who demonstrates shibari (Japanese rope bondage) on Carrie, the model, for the crowd at Broad Horizons. ... Here the author explores the complex relationship between life and art, or reality and fantasy, as well as the social ambiguity of a relationship between a “lesbian” and a person who is not female-identified.

Beth Wylde, D.L. King, Syd McGinley, and Cassandra Gold have stories in this anthology as well. I understand Beth is working on the next Broadly Bound edition.

Broadly Bound will be available through Phaze next month. I'll post a link when it's released.

Haunted Hearths!

Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades (Lethe Press, ed. Catherine Lundoff) is nominated in the Best Speculative Fiction category for the Golden Crown Literary Awards!

Plus, my story, Words Like Candy Conversation Hearts was selected (along with the marvelous M. Christian and Melissa Scott) for the first annual Best Lesbian Fiction anthology from Bedazzled Ink. I know Catherine Lundoff submitted my story, so a big thank you to her.
