i just ordered Coming & Crying (a self-published anthology about sex). i’ll admit i ignored the first hundred times I ran into the name when it was still in its nascent stages, back in march (or was it january?). if i wasn’t shocked at how small my tumblr world had become when i realized most of the people i follow were all talking in the same cyber circle, about the same (and at the time, cyber) book; i was curious when i *accidently* started following one of it’s publishers and editors, Meaghan O’Connell. within 6 minutes of browsing it’s tumblr page i found myself pouring out my Visa # to the paypal gods.
after listening to Erica Moore read her story from the book—tears streaming down my face, heart pumping with the heat of lovelost, and memories of her beating at my temples….i now feel equally terrified and excited about receiving said book. it also helps explain why so many bloggers have been posting things like this and this, expressing fear and relief upon it’s arrival.
at the moment, i feel terrified.”
