It’s November now! I’m not really sure what that means in terms of this epically terrible year, other than, of course, a new month moving on by.
I’m sitting here in my llama onesie, consciously not paying attention to the news coming from the States. Here in Spain, we are under a curfew while the covid numbers are rising (as they are all over Europe). I don’t really want to go out but my winter tan is so depressing that I absolutely need some sunlight to help lift my mood.
As for news that does not suck, I have some audio books coming out in the next couple of months. The Mercy duology, Bliss, and the Vampire duology as well. I’ll let you know as soon as those are out in the world.
Recently, though, I’ve been on a few podcasts. The Turn On with Kenrya and Erica, who celebrate and elevate Black voices and sexuality. The Good Bits, a sexy podcast out of Australia that has featured two of my stories. And NYC Basement where Shelley Nicole allowed me to chatter on about books, writing, and being me. Check these out at your leisure and let me know what you think.
Now, I’m about to head to the kitchen for a bit of baking therapy. I promised myself I’d make a red velvet cake this month. Although right now, my heart is yearning for something a bit simpler. I guess we’ll see what comes out of the kitchen.
Have you heard of The Good Bits? It’s a new podcast featuring the hot parts from select novels and short stories. Recently, they featured my short story The Magical Femme and the results are 🌶. Have a listen – with headphones if you’re not alone! – and let me know what you think.
You can get the complete short story at this LINK and the novel-length sequel, Femme Like Her, HERE. Listen HERE.
The Turn On is “a podcast for Black people who want to get off. To open their minds. To learn. To be part of a community. To show that we love and have sex too, and it doesn’t have to be political or scandalous or dirty. Unless we want it to be. Join us each week as we read a sexy piece of Black erotica, chop it up with the mind behind the literature, give y’all way too much information about our sex lives, and share some tips and tricks you might want to incorporate the next time you get it in.”
Erica and Kenrya featured my novel Rise of the Rain Queen on one of their episodes.
In the interview portion of my spot on The Turn On, Kenrya, Erica, and I talk books, soulmates, and sexuality. Listen HERE.
NYC Basement is a podcast that features Black and Latin@ poets and authors in conversation with the fantastic Shelley Nicole. By the way, ignore my constant hand movements and sweaty upper lip.
Listen and watch HERE.
That’s it from me. Massive love to all who need it. Until next time.
