To say I'm humble about this sort of thing is a drastic understatement. My self-esteem is so low that I always think, "Oh, they must have overlooked my terrible terrible story and awarded this honour on the strength of everybody else's work." I had the same reaction when "Take Me There" won a Lambda Literary Award. Actually, I've had stories in a lot of award-winning anthologies and I always dismiss my contribution.
It's so much fun living in my brain, guys. It's just a blast.
At least I can laugh at myself. Kind of.
Anyway, here's a bookish selfie of "Under Her Thumb" and me in the "spank me hard" outfit I happen to be wearing for my girlfriend. (Mission accomplished, by the way. She's realized that its hurt the most when she spanks my outer thighs, so now she zeroes in on them until I'm screaming, "No! No! Nooo!" And she also somehow got me upside-down enough to slap my asshole, which I think was an accident, but holy guacamole--that smarts!)
