Church ladies and porn!

I'm about 1500 words into my first novella of the year - "Bellingham Girl", which is sort of an erotica/dark fantasy hybrid. I'm giving serious thought to creating a new, friends-only livejournal and posting it there - not for critiques, but just so people can read it. Despite the "dark fantasy" bits, it's erotica, and there just aren't any traditional print markets out there for erotic novellas, especially a trilogy. And I hate to sound like a snob, but I don't want to send it to an e-publisher. I have nothing against them, but honestly: I do NOT want a cover on my novella that looks like this. Or this. Yikes. So hey, if I'm not going to get paid for my work no matter where I send it, I might as well ensure that it's ligerman-titty-free and shove it onto a f-locked site.

This thread has inspired my next story (thank you, marlowe1!). I had just watched "The Descent" for the first time this weekend, and was planning on writing something for the "Holy Horrors" anthology, so a story about the "real" Lutherans inhabiting the sub-basement of a quiet suburban church is a perfect fit. Now if only I can just stop laughing about the idea long enough to write the damn thing....
