I know my contributors to Wild Girls, Wild Nights are extraordinary writers, and now the Lambda Literary Award judges know it, too. Our anthology is one of three finalists in the Lesbian Erotica category. All the credit is due to the fine writers, who wrote this time with their hearts as well as their skills; I was just the catalyst. (But I still get to add this to my list of finalists over the years, now seven, and my one winner, Lesbian Cowboys.) This year's winner won't be announced until the ceremony in NYC on June 2, but I know from experience that making the finalist list is the real challenge; there's usually very little to choose between them for the award itself.
