my first time

this spring i did had my first time..well not my "first time" but i had the honor and joy to see/have my first two stories on the american book market aka in american anthologies...i wouldnt had have this pleasure if there wasnt the help of two wonderful editors namely sacchi green and neil plakcy who liked my work that much that they actually edited them and cleaned out my lil grammar mistakes... today i had another first first american review on one of my american stories...

over at T.R. Moos reviewed "surfer boys" neil plakcys hot and wave-wet anthology which is all about sexy and seductive surfers...among many well written stories you can finde my story " sleeping in the sand"...

which brings me to what mister moss wrote about "sleeping in the sand":

“Sleeping in the Sand" by Danielle de Santiago features an American surfer traveling in Africa who meets two young (18 and 19) French surfers, with associated drama, and finally getting fucked by the queer of the two French surfers, who is naturally a "master seducer." At 19 years old, I found that hard to believe, but the sensual details of seduction are certainly compelling.“Sleeping in the Sand" is a good transition into the remaining stories, many of which are rather romantic.

even though i didnt wrote anything about "master seducer" i think that is a pretty good review which i m very happy you mr moss

if you wanna read the rest of the reviews jump over to:

Terrific, Danielle! And this caught my eye:
"Sebastian Inlet" by Martin Delacroix features a surfer returning to the beach of his childhood and working through some homophobic trauma when a hot surfer takes him to dinner, followed by romantic sex.

I grew up near the Sebastian Inlet and know it well. I never had any homophobic trauma there that I can remember, though. Too bad. Perhaps I could now work through it and dinner in the bargain!

Seriously- I would think this review can only help your international standing and your career.
