Best Lesbian Erotica 2010
My favorite stories in this collection are by previous contributors to the series. "Jubilee" by Betty Blue is an atmospheric piece about a backwoods preacher, a "passing" butch who attracts women as honey attracts bees. Ruby, a juicy blonde damsel in distress, asks the Reverend for salvation, and her prayer is answered. The plot twist at the end surprises both the reader and the Reverend, who is reminded (like us) that everyone has a secret.

Best Lesbian Erotica 2002
This annual smutfest is known for its diversity, offering a naughty sweet for almost every palate. In Betty Blue's "Symphony in Blue," two lovers make a shocking mess with a gallon of blue paint.

Best Bisexual Erotica
Running the gamut from awakening-to-bisexuality to what [editor Carol] Queen calls "wall-to-wall fun," the stories include one of her favorites: "Changing," by local writer Betty Blue. In it a woman helps her ex-girlfriend get dressed up to go on a date with her new partner, a man. "There's a lot of erotic tension in both directions," Queen says, "and some of the true-to-life bittersweetness that comes with trying to share your new life with an ex."

Writing Works: The Journal of Lesbian Erotica
Betty Blue's "Fever" is by far the hottest tale here; it merges the experience of everyday horniness and being ill in a contemporary butch/femme scenario.
Yetta Howard, On Our Backs

[The] journalís focus is on "softcore romantic erotica." .... At the same time, the writing is often explicit and unabashedly sex-positive. "Fever," Betty Blue's tale of one woman's seduction of a partner who is sick with a cold, features quirky descriptions of sex between two insecure, mutually devoted women. Like "Fever," all the stories in Writing Works feature character development, coherent narrative, and genuine emotional connection.
