Happy May!

[Or: The post where I get overexcited and link to just about everybody I know]

Ooh! Look, there's a lovely review from Ashley Lister up at the ERWA, for J is for Jealousy: 'replete with tales that are hotter than hot from the best of the best'.

Eh, he means us!

Shanna Germain's 'Intoxication' - 'the intensity of emotion in this story is so sharp it borders on brittle, but Shanna’s prose is invariably sexy' - course it is. She can't help herself, that girl. ; )

And Erastes - 'writes erotica like Oscar Wilde with an erection'.

And Jeremy Edwards who is, as we all know, 'an incredible storyteller'.

Plus me! 'damned fine' [he means the story. Not moi personally.]

'[her] use of descriptive language is phenomenal and she breathes life into every green-tinted letter on the page'

Check out my big phenomenal toothy grin!

'As with all Alison Tyler’s anthologies the quality of writing is constantly superb'

I think I shall spend the day preening.

Also, lately I seem to be winning lots of Stuff. I won a big filth book from Madelynne Ellis' comp at lust bites. And I just won a 'surrender' ring on Alison Tyler's Trollop Salon, as part of her Kristina Lloyd month.

I feel very blessed. And it's May, my favourite month! Wow, I shall have to have a cup of tea to calm down. If I get too happy there's a danger I'll become even less coherent than usual.

Happy May, Nikki and congrats!

Sounds like an excellent start to your favorite month. But don't you go getting too coherent!

Nikki Magennis said...

No danger, Craig! Thanks!

Madelynne Ellis said...

Hope the big ol' filthy book is coming in handy!

Nikki Magennis said...

Yes, love it, thank you!

It's like looking through the dictionary when you're a kid trying to find the dirty words - only they're *all* dirty ... I think I make Beavis and Butthead noises when I'm reading it.

Janine Ashbless said...

Wow, that was a lovely review of your story, wasn't it? Congratulations!

Nikki Magennis said...

Merci, Janine. I'm still smiling!

Jeremy Edwards said...

Congrats, Nikki! I'm overexcited, too!! Put us together and we're double-overexicted, or maybe superoverexcited!

And then we achieve nuclear fission, no? : )
