Scheherazade's Facade Update

As people may have heard, last week, Vera Nazarian of Norilana Books announced that due to assorted personal reasons, many of the projects slated to come out this year have been pushed back.

Yes, this includes Scheherazade's Facade. Currently, the release date has been pushed back from October 2010 to October 2011. It is NOT cancelled, merely delayed. This anthology WILL come out, with a mindblowingly-awesome roster of authors and stories.

All submissions that I received for Scheherazade have been responded to, with acceptances or rejections. All authors selected for inclusion have been contacted and made aware of the changes in the schedule, and I've heard back from almost all of them confirming that they're in this for the long haul. Have I mentioned that I love my authors, and they are an awesome bunch? Their patience and understanding has been outstanding.

Furthermore, I am currently working behind the scenes to see if there's any way to bring Scheherazade to the shelves sooner than October 2011. I will be sure to update if anything happens.

My apologies to anyone affected by these circumstances, but I'm at the whim of my esteemed publisher, and she's at the whims of fate, real life, and bureaucracy at the moment.

One last thing on a happy note: Despite the schedule change, Clockwork Phoenix 3 will still be coming out in July, containing my story, "Your Name Is Eve". I'll remind you all when it's available.

Review Opportunity!

I currently have four stories in various Circlet ebook anthologies. If anyone is interested in reviewing any of these anthologies, please feel free to drop me a private message via Livejournal to request a PDF copy. Please include a contact email, which one(s) you'd like to check out, and where you plan to review/talk about it. Please, please do this only if you seriously intend to review! I will reiterate that these are all erotic anthologies, so use your best judgement in the matter. Books definitely contain explicit material, all manner of sexualities, and NSFW content. I have the following up for offer:

Like Butterflies In Iron (Urban Faeries)
Like A Queen (Lesbian Fairy Tales)
Like A God's Kiss (Greek and Roman myths)
Like A Mask Removed, Volume One (Superheroes)

I don't care if it's a good review or bad, if you love my story or hate it, just so long as you post some honest thoughts on Amazon, Goodreads, your blog, or on the bathroom stall of your local Internet cafe.
