Oi! I've been such a slacker.

I can totally explain why I haven't posted a blog in a while. Last weekend, I took a trip to Biloxi, Mississippi, to see Elvis Costello, which was really quite awesome. Then Sunday afternoon I had an event to attend.

I guess the main reason I've been reluctant to post is that I got a revise and resubmit this week.

An Interview with Erotic Romance Writer Cherise Sinclair
I was fortunate enough to find Club Shadowlands in my inbox one morning in 2008 from the submissions coordinator at LooseId. As an editor, I often read and accept things based on what the market wants, not necessarily what I want. Shadowlands, however, appealed to me on a personal level as well. Ever since, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Cherise as an editor and a reader. Sometimes I feel bad that I get free copies of all of her Loose Id stories!
Now, here's the interview:
GG: It seems as if, right from the beginning with Loose Id, you and your writing took center stage, and you appear fairly comfortable in the role. Your work has had a great reception from readers, critics, and contest judges. To what …
