French Handwriting in Italian (Best Erotica 2007)

French Handwriting in Italian (Best Erotica 2007)
Good news...recently Tristan Taoromino, the editor of Best Lesbian Erotica 2007 (cleis press) who published one of my short stories told me that an Italian publishing house wanted to buy the rights to my story, French Handwriting . The story will be sold to Arnoldo Mondadori Editore Publishing house in Italy for use in Best Erotica 2007. I will get 300 US dollars and they will own it for 10 years. Yay real money for Z-money! I am psyched! Finally writing pays off.

below is thee-mail I recieved:
