Break out the bubbly!

I got my first acceptance!

What was going to be a rant from me today on the topic of corporate BDSM (at my hubby's job - they're yanking his chain - don't get me started - nobody is having fun and there is no safe word) has instead morphed into a happy dance. 

My story Wet as Spring will be included in Coming Together: Al Fresco (there's the pre-order page) and I'm so excited that I can't contain myself. 

I wish I knew how to get the cover picture on here, but since I'm new at this - though I guess
no longer Extra Virgin - I'll just have to stick with links. 

                                                             Hey! I did it! 

It's coming out on Earth Day and I'm so excited (did I already say that?) to have my first published story be in one of Alessia Brio's Coming Together Anthologies

I could blabber on for ages, but I have to go help get a broken-down truck home. Actually, to tell the truth, I didn't get champagne, but this. Trader Joe's had it - they'd just put it on the shelf 2 hours before I was in there today. 

Oh shit! I have to write a bio!

Yeah! Yippy! Way to go! This is great news! I'm so happy for you! Congratulations! Can't wait to read it!
(Needed some good news - this gives me hope for the universe - THANKS!)

Jeremy Edwards said...

High fives ... tens ... and twenties, Robin!!! (Hold on a second while I take my socks off for the twenties.) Helia and I will be toasting your success tonight—the beginning of your illustrious publishing career in erotica!

I think Coming Together is a terrific series, both for its erotic content and its fund-raising for important causes.

And I love your story title!

I hope once you're done dealing with the truck, you can spend the rest of the weekend celebrating!!

Erobintica said...

Marina - Thank you! (((hugs)))

Jeremy - my, what nice socks you have. Seriously, thank you.

and yes, the truck is home. Whew. It's funny, I'm kinda speechless right now.

Donna said...

Congratulations! This is fabulous news and I know it's only the beginning. Still, the first acceptance will always be the sweetest in a way for me.

Tell me about corporate BDSM, I have to watch that pretty show from the sidelines myself--but a few sips of champagne and it's but a dream. Better yet, put the boss in your next "real" BDSM story!

I'll be toasting you, too, with some Malbec here on the west coast :-).

Erobintica said...

Thanks Donna. This story is special to me for a number of reasons, so this is great that it's my first!

EllaRegina said...

Yay, Robin!

Congratulations to you!

A nice beginning, too.

It's a lovely series!

Enjoy your bubbles!

Sommer Marsden said...

Framboise! I will be there post haste!

Congrats, congrats, congrats! That is great.

Hate bios. Get drunk (on framboise) and write it. That is the best way to go.

Congrats. I said that already, but fuck it. :)

Neve Black said...

This is EXCELLENT news! Congratulations! Yowza, yowza!

Anonymous said...

Congratulations Robin!!!! Fabulous news! Congratulations on submitting it, and congratulations on its acceptance!! ;)

Kristina Lloyd said...

Yay, congratulations!

And your first cover has got a bit of a bloke on it. Here's hoping you'll get many, many more!

Gina Marie said...

Hear, hear! Tie that boss up and make him squeal for mercy!!!

Congrats Robin, from the bottom of my heart, YAY!!!!

Enjoy that toast....and what's sure to follow!

Unknown said...

Wow! Thanks everybody. *passes out glasses of bubbly*

EllaRegina - thanks, you've been such an inspiration.

Sommer - thanks - good idea - I hate writing bios - gotta do it with my poetry and they're always changing so you have to keep doing them - ack! - maybe I'll take your advice. ;-)

Neve - Thank you! Yowza indeed!

Emerald - thank you thank you thank you ;-)

Kristina - thanks, yeah, I'm pretty happy about that myself. ok - was just going to get started on that here but decided not to, hahaha. more later.

Kirsten - Thanks. Unfortunately, I've met the mucky mucks and I'm not sure I'd want to waste my time. hahaha.

Well, I'm going to celebrate right now by going out and taking a walk for the first time in days - I think it's finally gotten out of the 20s.

thank you all - again - wow

Erobintica said...

hahaha, I screwed up my own comment posting on my own blog.

Craig Sorensen said...

As a veteran of corporate BDSM skirmishes, my congratulations on your first acceptance.

Sweet, isn't it?

The next one will be too.

And the one after that.

And so on...

Erobintica said...

Thanks Craig. I imagine they're all sweet. And let me tell you, I've got quite a backlog tumbling around in my brain.

My only problem now is finding the time to write - this next week is insane with activities and deadlines and meanwhile my mind is conjuring...

Helia Brookes said...

Wow! Congratulations! And the Coming Together books are so particularly cool--plus Earth Day! Awesome!

Yum, I love framboise lambic. I'm drooling and it's only mid-afternoon--too soon to drink. Enjoy enjoy enjoy!

Erobintica said...

Thank you Helia,

I will pour you a virtual cup. ;-) Yeah, for reasons of my own, I'm particularly pleased that my first published story will be in this collection.
