BINGO. The Cheat Sheet.
This color is called "NSFW." There *is* a Trollop, but oh woe's me, the hue is a "pinked coral." How wrong is that? I also like this one, which is named Stalker. Someone at Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics clearly has a sense of humor.
For some reason, when I'm buried under deadlines, I like to look for lipsticks. I'm not sure what that says about me. I don't need anymore lipsticks. But I do like to lick. I mean, look.
There is also a "Super NSFW" — which is a little how I'm feeling right now. Super Not Suitable for Work. Not because my mind is so dirty, but because I'm juggling about 16.3 ideas. I've got a novel due on 1/15; excerpts from my previous novel to submit by, um, now; and an antho for 2/1. (The antho is looking fab, by the way. You writers rock.) I'm also re-editing a vintage anthology (from more than a decade ago) and polishing up the next installment in our anal series. And my brain went into overdrive recently, so I have a list of shorts I have to write, if only to quiet down the voices in my head. (Sometimes those voices need a fucking ball gag. I swear.)
Which brings us to BINGO.
If you're like me, you're a little confused as to which spots on my BINGO board are filled and which are not. So here is a refresher. So far, we've managed to "cover" the following...
• One Night Only
• The Big Book of Bondage
• The Best of Donna George Storey
• Hungry for Love
• Smart Ass
• Merry XXXmas
• Sudden Sex
• Fetish Sex
What's sad is that I have a few bits of news for some of the titles I've already mentioned. Like the fact that One Night Only made The Bright List.
And Merry XXXMas won a fab review on Paperback Dolls.
Then there's news that doesn't have anything to do with BINGO, but I just wanted to share... Janine Ashbless highlights a story by Erica Dumas in an interview here.
So where does that leave us?
With new squares to cover this week. I promise!
