There's a smashing new review of the 'Being Me' charity anthology over at Kimmer's Erotic Book Banter. (If you're put off by that word 'erotic', by the way, don't worry - 'Being Me' isn't a particularly erotic book and as the review suggests, would be suitable for YA readers as well as sensitive adults!)

Excellent news today - I've had my first short story in ages published over at the Library of Rejected Beauty. The Library does what it says in that wonderful title - collects stories and other assorted creative content that have been rejected elsewhere, often multiple times, but which the creator still considers to have some [...]
