Short story to be published in Best Women’s Erotica of the Year Vol 2

Category : News

I just had some fantastic news to close out a truly stressful week—a short story I wrote a couple of months ago has been accepted for publication in the Best Women’s Erotica of the Year Volume 2 anthology!

The anthology will be published by Cleis Press and edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, who told me I could share the news! Rachel has over a dozen anthologies to her name, not to mention several reading and erotic writing workshops. Best Women’s Erotica of the Year Volume 2 is now available for preorder on, and its release is set for December 2016! The cover may not be final yet, so I haven’t posted it here, but stay tuned for news!

Now a little bit about my story featuring all-Filipino characters, entitled “On the Calendar”:

Ana is fast approaching her 32nd birthday, and it makes her all the more aware of her no-boyfriend-since-birth status. Which may be due to the fact that she’s been in love with her friend Rico for years. So as the birthday that will take her age off the calendar fast approaches, she’s got only one thing on the calendar: seduction!

I know it’s early days yet, but I’m super excited! More details about the anthology to come!

Also, I got the awesome Georgette Gonzales AKA Edith Joaquin to do a quickie edit before I submitted it, so much thanks to her for some very useful feedback!
