Event Sandwich!

Actually, with today sandwiched between last night's Erotic Literary Salon in Philadelphia and tomorrow night's In the Flesh in New York, the events are technically the bread, with the in-between day the portabello mushroom or whatever. So the metaphor really doesn't work, because in this case the bread slices (i.e., the events) are more exciting than what's between them (i.e., the in-between day with travel and no events). So screw this sandwich metaphor crap. Forget I said anything about sandwiches. What's a sandwich? Never heard of the chap.

Anyway, I had a truly delightful time at the salon last night—what a warm, welcoming environment for the celebration of sexy literature! Huge thanks to salonniere Susana Mayer for inviting me to do my thing* on her stage. And I got to hear the beautiful, exciting, and inventive erotic writings of the salon regulars.

*To read my work aloud, that is. I'm not a sexual contortionist.

I'm so thrilled to be returning to In the Flesh tomorrow! The lineup includes novelist Anna David (Bought, Party Girl), memoirist Mara Altman (Thanks for Coming), erotica writers Jeremy Edwards (hi!) and Robin Glasser (My Life as a Concubine), memoirist Suzanne Guillette (Much to Your Chagrin), Blaise K (host, How I Learned Reading Series), and Craig Yoe (Secret Identity: The Fetish Art of Superman’s Co-creator Joe Shuster). Illustrious host Rachel Kramer Bussel is urging people to get there by 7:30 for the best chance of getting seats. (Doors open at 7:00 p.m., and the event begins at 8:00.)

In the Flesh takes place at Happy Ending Lounge, 302 Broome St. (between Forsyth and Eldridge; look for the "XIE HE Health Club" awning). Admission is free, with free snacks to boot! Click here for more info.

I'm so glad it went well, Jeremy! The erotica community is such a great bunch of people and I'm sure they loved your work.

Say hello to Robin Glasser for me, and have a great time at ITF.

Okay, so you're not a sexual contortionist, but I have it on good authority you are a literary contortionist.

God, you crack me up, Jeremy. Even without the sandwiches.

Best of luck at In the Flesh!

I have it on good authority you are a literary contortionist.Well, there was that one time I accidentally hit the "sort by part of speech" button in Word, and my story turned inside out.
