I just signed a contract for a story called Key to Me to be included in the Ties that Bind anthology at MLR Press.
It should come out around February, although I’m not sure that it’s a Valentine’s Day anthology, per se. The blurb so far reads:
“Stories of love and the ties that bind lovers together both figuratively and literally. Love, need, desire, scarves, rope or ribbons. What ties you to your lover?”
My story is about Noah, a cute guy who’s been receiving some mysterious gifts from an unknown admirer. When he gets bondage cuffs and a collar with a padlock, the gifts take on an all new meaning. Rather than being threatened, Noah is intrigued.
More details as I know them
