Get involved with +Coming Together. Make a difference. (Your contributions are now tax deductible!)
 
Because of recent events, I've decided to edit another anthology for Coming Together.

http://www.eroticanthology.com/outsidethebox.htm

Proceeds will go to the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation (www.cholangiocarcinoma.org).

The theme of the anthology will be "pioneering" and the deadline for submissions is January 1. I urge all my writing friends to at least consider submitting a story.

Since we'll also be producing an audio version, donations of voice talent and/or audio editing labor will also be greatly appreciated.

Well put.
by Alexandra Sokoloff This has been a heavy week. Like a good part of the rest of the world, I’m heartbroken over the loss of the incomparable Robin Williams.  I'm surprised at the depth of my feelings. Of course the ...

On August 20th 2014, at 11:20pm, P.G. Holyfield — author of Murder at Avedon Hill — lost his very short battle with cholangiocarcinoma, a particularly vicious and deadly form of cancer. He was 46 years old. 

Effective now and for the immediate future, 100% of all donations we receive to Murder at Avedon Hill or made directly in P.G.s name will be provided to a fund set up to help care for the three young daughters left behind. Normally, we keep 25% of all donations. But in Patrick’s case (Patrick is the P in PG) all proceeds we collect go straight to them, no admin fees.

To say that we’re saddened and shocked by this is an understatement of the highest degree. A giant P.G.-sized hole is left in the lives of his extended family, to which I am deeply honored to be a part of. If you’ve listened to his work — here or in various other places, as the man was prolific — then you are part of it as well. 

Rest well, my friend.

Okay, so Google+ claims that 2,560 people have me in circles.  That boggles my mind, since I rarely interact here & have done nothing to boost my circling. However, if true, I want to spend at least as much time here as I do on other social networks. So, if you're seeing this post, please just give it a +1 to let me know you're there, human, and can read English. Thanks muchly!

Introduction
Take one part Appalachian redneck, one part aging wet dream, and one part filthy-minded wordsmith. Mix well and serve with chocolate-covered cherries. There you have the one and only Alessia Brio. Alessia writes all colors and flavors of erotica, from heterosexual to ménage to same sex, and from twisted to humorous to deeply touching. (Sometimes, usually by accident, it even qualifies as romance.) Her work has earned her critical acclaim in the form of an EPPIE for Best Erotica (fine flickering hungers), two Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Best Erotica, and a Romantic Times Top Pick (Coming Together: For the Cure) in addition to a plethora of glowing online reviews.
