As the submissions deadline draws near for my very first anthology, “The Sexy Librarian’s Big Book of Erotica” I am completely stunned, honored and a little anxious.
I am running out of binder clips! LOL! I swear, I think one week that I have scrounged up enough to last, until I reach into that top desk drawer and feel a vast and empty cubby. I am a girl that likes things organized and loose papers mess with me, big time. I think I will have to break down and buy the ginormous barrel of binder clips from Costco.
There are no words to express how wonderful it has been to receive every single one of these submissions. I know, my cherry hasn’t been officially popped in the anthology department, but I really do love my job! I have to also take this moment to thank Cleis Press for this exciting opportunity to put together an erotica anthology. It is hilarious, Big Daddy knows when the submissions come in, because I always shout like Janine from Ghostbusters…
Does anyone out there remember how Elmira held her babies? That is how I feel, surrounded by so much fabulous creativity. It is really going to be a challenge to pick which stories to include in this anthology. That is where my heart kind of breaks. So, whether or not your short story does get accepted, please know that I did hold it in my two very appreciative, loving hands for a long time before any decision was made.
It is such an honor to have these delicious stories sitting on my desk.
I just wanted to take a moment and send out a great big “Thank You” to all the writers that have already submitted as well as those that are preparing to. I do wish you luck with your story and cannot wait to read it. Here is the official Submission Call for your convenience…http://www.thekissmequicks.com/2013/05/08/call-for-submissions/
