Synchronize your oysters!

My oyster-shell watch is set ahead for March 2011 and calibrated for GMT-5. Why? That's when my story "Eastern Daylight Time" will appear in the next anthology from Oysters & Chocolate, Nice Girls, Naughty Sex. This print collection will be published by Seal Press and follows last year's Oysters & Chocolate: Erotic Stories of Every Flavor. And so far I've seen that my story will be synchronized with pieces by Janine Ashbless, Heidi Champa, Annemarie Hartnett, and Kristina Wright. (Who else?)

Thank you, O Oysters!

Nerdish postscript:

Actually, if the book is released between the second and fourth Sundays in March, then Philadelphia (where "Eastern Daylight Time" is set) will be GMT-4, as at that point Philadelphia will be on Daylight Savings Time and Greenwich will not yet be on Summer Time. And if the book comes out prior to the second Sunday in March, then GMT-5 will be correct but Philly will still be on Eastern Standard Time. (The story itself, however, is set safely in June.)

I'm so pleased you're in this, too, Annemarie! I loved your piece in Coming Together: As One.

It must be all that displaced Australian football. ; )

Anyway, I know that when I'm reading your story it will be awesome o'clock.
