What do you do if you’re a little confused by the turns your erotic fantasy life is taking? This is what I told Wallace Baine, art editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel yesterday. I decided to write it all down and see if it came out as evil. It didn’t. It came out as funny. … Continue reading How I Came to write Carrie’s Story: the condensed version
The wonderful folks at Cleis Press have organized a bunch of events to read and sign and generally celebrate the handsome new editions of Carrie’s Story and Safe Word in San Francisco, Berkeley, and the North and South Bay communities (Petaluma and Capitola). That’s: Modern Times Bookstore in San Francisco, Friday night, February 8. Copperfield’s … Continue reading Party Animal: Come Celebrate the New Edition of Carrie’s Story
Is this exciting or what? Sometime within the next two or three months, there’s going to be a spoken word version of my erotic novel Carrie’s Story (w/a Molly Weatherfield), followed by its sequel, Safe Word, both of them produced for Audible.com by my brilliant friend, Susie Bright. Which means that you are going to … Continue reading Big News for Molly Weatherfield Readers
Honest, I wasn’t trolling for this one. I was innocently noodling around on my laptop to try to keep myself calm during last night’s theater-of-cruelty extra-innings Giants game on TV, when a wave of web-surfing picked me up and deposited me at The Daily Beast. Whereupon, well… if you were me, would you have resisted … Continue reading No Buts About It — bring on the semi-colon

Maybe. But since checking out … Continue reading A Confession. A Resolution. And a Rant.

Not bad, I’d have to say, for a book that was first published in 1995 (and which I would never have dreamed would still be in its 16th printing as I write … Continue reading Molly and Me… a new contest soon
I had a fantastic time delivering my “Imagining Sex” erotic romance writing workshop last week. Twice. First at a monthly Maryland Romance Writers meeting and then at New Jersey Romance Writers’ fantastic Put Your Heart in a Book Conference. They were great, smart audiences at both venues — if you’ve done any teaching, I’m sure … Continue reading Once is Not Enough
Smart Bitch Sarah, on The Slightest Provocation’s forthcoming May mass-market cover: …shirt unbuttoned but still tucked in + mullet + O-face is TOTAL WIN. Way to go on achieving the romance trifecta!! Making it sound, though its curlicues of well-wrought irony, more-or-less like a good thing (I think), though I wasn’t entirely sure what “O-face” … Continue reading O! (Getting Graphic)
…the first thing you’ll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don’t feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. … Continue reading If you really want to hear about it…
