Survived the Reading!

This is the book table from the Reading last night. As you can tell, it’s at Babeland, a most wonderful sex toy store here in Seattle. Excellent background for the pictures I must say. I was fortunate enough to have been in excellent company. Lacy Danes I already know and love but I finally got to meet Bonnie Edwards, Celia May Hart and Susan Lyons.

Bonnie and Susan write some really hot contemporaries – Bonnie’s reading was from Midnight Confessions – a ghost story! Bonnie had great rapport with the audience and didn’t seem a darned bit nervous. Susan read from Hot in Here and Hot Down Below – yes, you guessed it, sexy firefighters!

Celia May Hart and Lacy both write historical erotica – Lacy read from her recent release, What She Craves while Celia read from Made for Sin and Show Me.

I read two excerpts – a short MMF scene from Vengeance Due and a longer one from Enforcer. The best compliment of the night was from the manager who told me she’d start recommending Vengeance Due to customers who came in asking for how to books on fellatio! I was nervous at first but once I started reading it was fine. In the end I had a great time and a great many of my friends came so thank you! I’m hoping to do it again some time now that I’ve done it and survived.

This is just before reading from Enforcer – it was a good thing I blushed when I read because it was cold last night and the door was open. I didn’t feel the cold at all until I finished my spot both times. Odd how that works!

    I’m so glad it went well for you, Lauren. I can’t imagine standing in front of a group of people reading, never mind reading erotic love scenes… I blush just thinking about it.

    Bonnie Rose – it really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! I just looked down at the paper and read. If I’d had to look out at the audience it might have been different but it wasn’t too bad.

    Thanks, Mel!
