A Visit to a Dungeon!

Floggers and Whips and Wands, Oh My!

I am sending out a HUGE thank you to Beth Wylde today! Yesterday was an experience I cannot wait to repeat.

For those of you who didn't know, Beth Wylde set up Literary Foreplay, a group reading from nine authors of erotic and speculative fiction, at a dungeon here in North Carolina. I was lucky enough to be one of the authors invited and, oh my, Sekr had some nice toys!

It was an interesting experience. The reading, as well as the dungeon. I was able to hear authors' works that I don't think I would normally read. The central theme for all the stories was the BDSM and Dominant/submissive elements within them. Since my own stories carry that theme, it made the experience even more intriguing. If you get an opportunity to participate or attend any other readings Beth sets up, I would encourage you to do so!!

When I arrived I was lucky enough to sneak in on a little lesson our hostess was giving Yvette Hines, one of the other authors, about floggers. And the collection Sekr had was amazing. Fur, patent leather, braided, and even one made of tinsel. Yes, I said tinsel. When I saw the room and the closet of toys, I wished I'd left earlier than I had so there would have been more time for me to explore.

Today I'm running around getting ready for RWA's National conference in Orlando, Florida. But my mind keeps going back to the things I saw and heard last night. I'm kinda thinking now that I should have stayed to watch the scene play, but edits were calling me home.

I'm off to work on the edits that kept me from playing last night. Have yourselves a great day!!

My First Reading is This Saturday!!

This Saturday, July 24th, I'll be attending my first reading with nine other authors. I'm really looking forward to it, not only because it's my first reading, but the location is just perfect-- An adult club that supports the kink community, La Fortress, in North Carolina.

Just the name of the club has me thinking of interesting stories. LOL.

Literary Foreplay:
An afternoon of HOT erotica - July 24th 2010 2PM-6PM

Summer is here and the temperatures are steaming but we've found a way to get you even hotter. Want to turn up the heat? Ready to sweat? If so, we've got the event for you!
Join local erotica writers for an afternoon of literary foreplay in Gibsonville, NC on July 24th 2010 from 2pm - 6pm as they read from some of their yummiest and naughtiest stories. Join hostess Beth Wylde and LF owner Adventureseker with readings scheduled by:
Beth Wylde
Nobilis Reed
Oceania Monroe
Jhada Rogue Addams
Helen Madden
Qwillia Rain
Yvette Hines
I. B. Cuffman
and possibly more..........

$5 cover charge at the door gets you into the erotica reading session plus the author Q&A as well as time afterwards to purchase autographed copies of some of the hottest erotic books you'll ever get your hands on. The $5 cover charge goes to benefit La Fortress, the club that has graciously supported the kink community for so many years. It's time to give back. Seker does so much! To add to the atmosphere the readings will be done in the dungeon. Afterwards there will be the regular Saturday night play party at 8PM - (which is a seperate event and a seperate cost)
Hope to see you all there.
The first 20 people that bring a friend with them will receive a free book courtesy of Bold Strokes Books or Torquere Press.Their choice as long as supplies last. Beth will also have her goodie basket with her full of free swag bags for everyone and special treats for those who purchase a book from her.

Please RSVP for a seat and directions with Adventureseker at:
Adventureseker@aol.com

I'm hoping it'll be fun, and I'll have not only paperback copies of my book, Diablo Blanco Club: Unfair Advantage, but I'll also have my newest paperback release, An Invitation: Ariel's Pet.

If you're interested in attending, please feel free to email the address above. I'll see about bringing a few goodies with me to go along with the books I sell. I'll also have some sampler CDs with excerpts from my other books.

Hope to see you there!!
