Preston had a rapid rise in the adult entertainment world, but not one that's so fast it risks a quick burnout. She captured 16 total nominations this year, including female performer of the year nominations from both AVN and Xbiz. She has also represented the industry on several newscasts. In addition to her onscreen talents, Preston is a good writer, spinning sometimes insightful (and often hilarious) tales of the industry from an insider's perspective.
Also, in 2012, she was named a Penthouse Pet, a distinction which increases a performer's recognition factor – and the price they can charge per scene. She also appeared in a music video, further boosting her fame.
