I received my 42nd acceptance of the year this evening, this time for a confession.


I received my 41st acceptance of the year late this afternoon, surpassing last year's 40 acceptances with several days left in the year to nudge the total up another acceptance or two.


My erotic crime fiction story "Mutable Memories" appears in the anthology Men of the Manor, which was published in October, though my copies didn't arrive until today.

Lirtle reviews Men of the Manor at Prism Book Alliance and has this to say about "Mutable Memories," my contribution to the anthology:
This is raunchy and irreverent and I love it. Young men all around, behaving like the free sexual beings they’re fortunate enough to be able to express themselves as, thanks to the lives they lead. This is rife with straight-faced tongue-in-cheek humor. This definitely qualifies as more Downton Abbey erotica for your dining pleasure. Enjoy it. I know I did. This is another author of which I want to read more of his work. And the title, yeah, it fits. Nicely plotted short story. 
4.25 stars

I finished and submitted my fifty-third short story of the year this evening. This one's a 4,600-word confession I started writing February 1, 2009. Until I picked it up again a few weeks ago, all I had written was the opening scene.
