For me, it started with a joke.
A ridiculous joke pulled from an equally ridiculous story Christa Faust shared with a few folks during Bouchercon 2015.
In short, someone fucked a bike. I think…gross…
But how? What the hell are the logistics of it? For why even?
Who cares? It was funny.
So a running joke began: make a crime-themed anthology of bike erotica. Bizzaro-level insanity. Some folks got the joke and others rolled their eyes because sometimes writers are afraid of their true feelings.
I am not afraid, my friends. I wrote erotica about a bicycle.
Great Jones Street (an awesome short story app – sort of like Netflix but it doesn’t make you stupid) is publishing my first (yes, first) story about a bike that people find TOO GODDAMN SEXY. Seriously, remember those horrific Emmanuelle movies? This is something like that, but the lady with the big boobs is a bike instead. No boobs – couldn’t figure out a way to make that work.
I’m a fucking genius, right? RIGHT?
Anyway, check out this great art:
