Carnal Machines: Steampunk Erotica

I'm excited to announce my story, Mutiny on the Danika Blue, will be included in Carnal Machines, a Cleis Press compilation edited by none other than D. L. King. This is an achievement I wouldn't have thought possible without the encouragement of my critique partner, KL Grady. So to you, KL, I say thank you, thank you, thank you and the coffee is on me next time we rub elbows.

Carnal Machines has a gorgeous cover that oozes sexy steampunkery. It brings to mind the blending of searing steam and cold steel, rigid gears and supple skin, tightly laced corsets and carnal lust both capped so taught that pressure and desire build exponentially until... well, you'll have to buy the book.

Publisher's Description:

The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, et al enthralled us with their visions of new possibilities. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era.

Carnal Machines is scheduled for release May 1, 2011 and is already taking pre-orders.
