the word.

I've met a lot of other very talented writers since I've been blogging. It all started the second I licked my lips, and had my first taste of Alison Tyler. Ahem. Her blog that is.

Alison is a talented, profilic writer and editor. From what I can tell, she's an overall really cool person also. She lives on the left coast. Far, far away from Ohio. Even though, I've never met her, I feel that I've gotten to know her, via blogging and e-mailing. Maybe someday we'll have the opportunity to grab dinner and share some blue agave together. I'm sure we'd have plenty of things to talk about.

I've been fortunate, blessed actually to have met other talented erotica writers and editors since jumping into the deep end of the porn pool. It's odd, because I've yet to physically meet these writers, but I feel we share the same supportive vibe.

I wanted to take a moment and share with all of you some of these writers and editors latest and greatest wins in this small and exciting world of erotica. I'm excited for each of them. Writing is wonderful gift, and I'm here offering a toast to each on their most recent successes:

Sommer Marsden

Whom have I forgotten? My sincere apologies if I've forgotten you, and be sure to let me know, so I can add you to my list here.



Craig Sorensen said...

Thank you so much Neve! It's kind of you to mention me!

Neve Black said...

You're so welcome. It's well deserved, Craig.

Heidi Champa said...

Thanks for the shout out. It is so nice to have a real community in such a solitary effort like writing.

Neve Black said...

I concur, Heidi.

I'm so glad I've found other writers out there to communicate with, even if it's via web-blogging.

We're all so different, but we go through the same highs and lows.

I think it's important to celebrate and recognize the highs when you can. ;-)

Gosh, I'm practically blushing. Thanks so much Neve! Here's to you as well (pouring a big glass of Merlot) cheers to Neve Black and her amazing writing, wit and charm (to name a few attributes). What's that funny Steve Martin toast from Roxanne? "I'd rather be with all of you than with the finest people in the world!"

Jeremy Edwards said...

[Pant pant] Just catching up. (I have my track shoes on, but the blogs outrun me sometimes.)

What a nice post! It's people like you, and all the people you mention, who make this crowd such a joy to run around with.

Donna said...

Whoah, what a list! I'm honored to be part of it. I seriously believe erotica writers have more fun, and a good part of that is because of the people who write dirty stories are so cool and wonderful. I hope some day we will be together drinking Merlot, until then I raise my cyber glass to you all!

Neve Black said...

You have no idea how honored I am to have cum (I just couldn't resist)to know all of you.

Glass raised: To prosperity and spreading the word....


Smut Girl said...

And bringing up the rear (god, sorry, but I love the rear) is moi!

Thx, Neve. I'm always honored to be included in anything black and blue. Are there bite marks and spank welts, too? ;)

It's a pleasure to know you. Come see me some time. ;)

Neve Black said...

Sommer, aka, Smut Girl,
I've been indeed bumping and grinding over on your blog for quite some time now.

And the rear, my dear is quite exquisite. :-)
