After working our asses off to get Blood Beats Vol. 2 out before the end of this year, my publisher and I decided to push the new publication date to January 2008. It really is coming out then. In the meantime, the current issue of the Advocate (the one with Cate Blanchett on the cover) has an excerpt; it's taken from a piece I wrote on Lil' Kim just for Vol. 2 called "The Pornagrapher's Daughter."
I'm also going to be speaking at Princeton later this month as part of their two-day symposium, "Ain't that a Groove": The Genius of James Brown. I'm on the panel "Mama Don't Take No Mess: Feminist Readings of James Brown." (Where else could they slot a mama's boy?) For more info on that, click here.
