New Book! (A.K.A I’m not dead yet.)

Sexy Sailors, edited by Neil Plakcy.

Sexy Sailors is out! You can grab a copy from Cleis Press, if you’d like.

Mine is Boots For The Goddess: the story of a fisherman and the blacksmith who stays behind; of sacrifice and loss. It’s also full of sex, cute nicknames, and I gave Kelvi my hair’s lack of cooperation with combs.

As for my continued presence among the living… Yeah. I’m still swimming back to the surface from my most recent plunge into fandom!, so I’m still pretty distracted by the pretty. And the funny, and the shiny, and…

I’m aiming to wrench myself away from the distracty fun and get back to work sometime soon, because as much as I love my newest insanity-laden community, I love getting paid for my work more. …But I might wait until the first of the year before I do, what with the holidays and stuff coming up.

Also, I leave you with an example of the insanity that BBC Sherlock inspires: The Benedict Cumberbatch Song (CAUTION: Catchy. Loud. WEIRD.) (Cumberbatch plays Holmes.)

Your Obscure Fandom Pairings Of The Day:

Link/Morgan (Danger Island)

Juve/Jerome* (Fantômas)

I suspect that I may be the only person for that last one, though. I need more Fantomas stories! I have no idea if there was ever a second volume collected, let alone translated into English. (While looking for the link to the first volume, I discovered not only the second set of tales, but a third and what may either be a stand-alone novel or a fourth anthology. Hooray!)

…And yes, if I succumb to the desire to write Juve/Jerome, I will post it here (and possibly/probably to Rareslash, too).

* Alas, yes, this is misspelled. I blame Microsoft for making it stupidly difficult to type unusual characters.
