Today is a Good Day

993606_611404835559894_1975686762_nToday is a good day. We don’t really get to say that as often as we like, but sometimes it’s because we aren’t paying attention or we forget there’s much to celebrate outside our own narrow view.



1496065344.01._SX500_SCLZZZZZZZ_My good day/good news is vicarious, but that makes it all the more special, because a dear friend, Sessha Batto, earned recognition for her collection of homoerotic short stories, SEX RAY SPECS, with an honorable mention in the 2014 Rainbow Awards.

The judge says: “A great collection. Many of the stories were touching, some dark, some troubling, but all were made to touch something in the reader. Erotic? Yes. Sexy, funny, horrifying, good, great. I really liked this collection.”


I heartily concur with the judge, but don’t take my word for it. These stories take you beyond the merely erotic into edgy and poignant and thought-provoking.

flowersSo congratulations, Sessha, well-deserved!



About Nya Rawlyns

Nya Rawlyns doesn’t write typical romance. She writes emotion as a contact sport, rough and often raw. It need not be pleasant, heart-warming or forever after. What she seeks is what lies beneath—a dance of extremes, the intersect of need and desire, and the compromises we make when pain and pleasure become indistinguishable. ***** She has lived in the country and on a sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay, earned more than 1000 miles in competitive trail and endurance racing, taught Political Science to unwilling freshmen, and found an avocation in materials science. ***** When she isn’t tending to her garden or the horses, the cats, or three pervert parakeets, she can be found day dreaming and listening to the voices in her head.
