Three weeks ago I turned in the manuscript of Best Lesbian Erotica 2016--now with the title changed by the publisher to Best Lesbian Erotica of the Year, Volume 1--and it's scheduled to come out in February. It will be a while before I hear about final approval of each story, but in my opinion (obviously) they're all terrific. It's been a bit of an adventure editing this, since I'm working with new publishing staff with the new owners of Cleis Press, Start/Midnight Publications, and I don't know how their tastes may differ from those I've been accustomed to, but I'm sure the anthology will be worthy of the fantastic series that will be in its twentieth year in 2016. I got my own start in erotica in BLE 99, with quite a few more appearances along the line, so this book has a specula place in my heart.
I've responded to all submissions, as far as I know, so if anyone submitted but didn't get a final response, please let me know.
For folks in the NYC area, it looks like we'll be doing a preview reading there in December; I'll keep you posted.
Here's the link for pre-ordering (yes, I know the cover still has the photo stock markings, but I'm sure that will be dealt with in good time.)
