Had an interesting time yesterday evening talking to my photographer friend Steve about a possible collaboration for submission to Masquerade's Erotic Journal. That would be great fun -- writing a story to go with Steve's photos.
Here are the guidelines for the anthology, in case any of you are interested in submitting to it.

Format: E-mail submissions preferred, cleanly formatted (I will either delete or return unreadable material) in plain text (not an attachment). If you can't do an e-mail sub let me know and we'll work around it.
Mail to email@example.com, with a clearly marked header reading:

If it doesn't have that header, I may not read it.
If you have any questions, please ask.
