Erotica on the Edge


So I'm closing in on Figment, which is the craziest, topsy-turviest story I've ever told. I am thinking that this may only be the first part of it. But that's probably because I fucking love some of the characters. I love them and I don't want them to leave. (My pages. My brain.)

At first, I thought I would post the completed book in pieces, and that for each character, I'd use a different colored ink. Then I dabbled with the idea of hosting a fundraiser to print a thousand copies. The entertaining part of this idea was that I loved coming up with the rewards I would give. You know:

Donate $5—I send you a pretty postcard
Donate $15—I remember you on your birthday
Donate $25—I crochet a one-of-a-kind scarf in the color of your choice
Donate $50—I call you from a pay phone

Honestly, I am still undecided. What I do know is that this is my best work to date. I know that in my heart and soul. And after all these years, that's all I want. To get better. To improve. To challenge myself. I've broken all the rules. I've knocked down every wall.

Rather than give a date for the release (which I will invariably miss and then beat myself up over) I'm going to simply say: It's coming. Soon.

This is erotica on the edge, and I hope you'll take the plunge with me.

XXX,
Alison

Count me in! I've loved what you given us so far. I'll do whatever necessary to help get it into print and into people's hands.
