No, not that kind of submission!

You probably don't remember that over a year ago, I made this post about my alter ego [livejournal.com profile] evadare_volney submitting a story to Circlet Press for their forthcoming anthology Journey to the Centre of Desire: Erotic Retellings of Jules Verne.

My description of the story at the time: "It’s Aronnax/Conseil/Nemo. There is D/s power-jockeying and a steampunk tentacle fucking machine involved. And yes, it’s called “Poulp Friction” and I’m not even sorry *dodges rotten molluscs.*"


I admit, I'd come close to giving up. But patience pays off! I heard back at last, and they want it!

Details forthcoming about release dates and all that, as soon as I have them. Patience, patience. You can't push the river.

Thank you so much! I'm pretty excited - but it's definitely something that calls for patience. I'm OK with that, the worst part is over. <3

Congratulations! We shall draw a discreet silence over that pun, however. ;^ )

Thank you so much. Titles are the hardest part most of the time, so if a horrific pun imprints itself on me, it's downright impossible to shake for something else. :)

Congratulations! \o/

I remember trying to reread the Verne book where they go to the moon as an adult, and sniggering over all the phallic imagery. They keep adressing the moon as "she" and "virginal" while planning to shoot a load up at the sky, and talking about how "America will penetrate the mysteries of the sky", etc. I hope someone does something with that.

(Also, now I am reminded of the Tiptree story where human astronauts are LITERALLY gametes ejaculated from earth.)
