It’s a real thing at long last! Five years ago, when I started working on my erotic memoir, “Diary of a Rope Slut,” I had no idea it would ever have an opportunity to be in print. Now thanks to the lovely folks over at Thorntree Press, I have a book deal! My book (which will probably end up as “Diary of a Rope Bottom” because Amazon is a prude) has an estimated publication date of May 1st, 2016. So keep an eye out for it.
That seems like a long time from now, but I have a lot of work to do before then!
Thorntree is a very small press with a nontraditional publication model. The cost for each book to be published is funded by an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign. So far they’ve more than reached their goal for each project they’ve backed. My campaign will go live on June 1st, and that’s right around the corner!
I would appreciate it so much if you would spread the word about my project. If you want to keep in the loop, please sign up here for updates on my crowdfunding campaign and publishing dates. I’m already plotting all sorts of exciting, sexy perks for those that donate. Everything from a print of my rope modeling work, private rope lessons, T-shirts with my naked on them and of course copies of the book.
This is really happening folks!
A quick update to share the cover of the latest anthology to contain one of my dirty stories, Best Bondage Erotica 2015! It will be out in February, just in time for you to read some twisted tales to your Valentine. I’m even looking into setting up a reading to celebrate the release because I’m so excited about this story. So keep an eye out for those details.
September is going to be a big month!
On Wednesday the 10th at 7:30 I’ll be reading at She-Bop. Which is a smutty writer’s dream come true! Rachel Kramer Bussle, Tiffany Reisz, Stella Harris, and some other special guests will be reading as well. It’s going to be quite the event. And it’s free!
On Tuesday the 16th at 7:30 I’ll be reading as part of the Unchaste Reading Series here in Portland, OR at the Knock Back Bar on NE Alberta. This is one of my favorite places to hear women get up and read so I’m thrilled to get up there with them and say some naughty words.
Then on Saturday the 20th at 8:00 I’ll be part of a variety burlesque show that’s a benefit fundraiser for EveryLibrary. Get your tickets here! You’ll be supporting a great cause and seeing a lot of sexy fun.
I’ll be combining strip tease with reading erotica for my set, so don’t miss it. My scandalous outfit is being created by Vee over at Frocketeer Designs as I type. It will be cute and wordy, of course.
My latest story to be published is now out on shelves in Rose Caraway’s fabulous anthology The Sexy Librarian’s Big Book of Erotica. Get your copy now! How can you not with a cover that hot?
This story is a huge departure from the usual smut I write. First of all there’s no rope! The other thing that makes it unique is it’s a sexy fairy tale which I’m so thrilled got included with the other yummy stories of every genre of erotica possible.
I’m so super excited about this anthology and the passion Rose is putting into it. So buy a book and keep an eye on Rose’s calender because she’ll be touring all over the U.S. to promote it.
Want to hear the story of what happened when I went to my first big kinky play party? Watch the video of my second go-round on the Mystery Box Show stage to find out.
Spoiler: it involves rope and some very silly hand gestures.
Thanks to Adam Strong you can watch me read smut to the Dangerous Writers at the Burnt Tongue reading series.
It was a great experience, not at all as traumatic as I was expecting to read in front of a group of such talented writers. I’m starting to get used to this being on stage thing!
Even a snowpocalpyse couldn’t keep people away. The bravest of Portlanders took bus, taxi, or sled in the snow and freezing rain to be warmed by dirty tales from Heather Heater, Liz Greenhill, Paul Soriano, Nick Elliott, and myself. All of the stories were amazing and I had a great time meeting my fellow story tellers. Look how gorgeous we all are!Next up, this Saturday February 15th from 5pm to 8pm I will be reading at Crush Bar as part of the Burnt Tongue readers series. There are some big names on the roster and I’m super terror-cited to be on that list. A huge thanks to Domi and the Dangerous Writers for getting me involved.
I’m at it again. I’ll be on stage this Saturday February 8th at Mississippi Studios telling a sexy story on stage as part of The Mystery Box Show! This time around I’m telling the tale of my first adventure with a public play party and a fucking machine.
As if that wasn’t reason enough to attend, the other performers have amazingly hot stories that you shouldn’t miss. Including stories of a first experience with good porn, getting it on with a sexy bar tender, discovering gay culture in New York, and the hottest blow job I’ve ever heard from a boot black.
My latest story to be anthologized is now available in Best Bondage Erotica 2014, edited by the fabulous Rachel Kramer Bussel who never ceases to find the sexiest literary erotica around.
My story, “Pegged” is a tale of male submission and rope. It’s unlike anything I’ve written before, so check it out! And stay tuned for my upcoming events in February where you’ll get a couple chances to see me on stage around town.
Check out the video of me telling my ropey story on stage at the Mystery Box show back in August. Once I got over my pre-stage jitters it was an awesome experience!
A huge thanks to Eric and the rest Mystery Box team for the opportunity to be involved in your event. And to my fellow story tellers, you were all amazing. Words I thought I’d never say…I can’t wait to get on stage again!
What better way to spend your Friday the 13th than by coming to an evening of erotic storytelling. Fellow wordsmith and author with Cleis Press, Stella Harris, will be joining me on Friday, September 13th at St. John’s Booksellers in North Portland. The event starts at 7:30 and will include readings from our recently published anthologies, cupcakes, wine, and vast amounts of sexiness!
Check out our bios and the event listing on St. John’s Bookseller’s site and join us for all the fun!
On Thursday, August 22nd at 7:30 PM I will be on stage as part of the Mystery Box Show here in Portland, OR at the Brody Theater. It’s Portland’s only live, sex-themed storytelling series bringing new tales of sexual exploration, awkward naked moments, fantasies revealed, and audience confessions to the stage.
Tickets are only $10 and the event often sells out fast, so buy yours at Brown Paper Tickets! It will surprise no one that I will be telling a story about my ropey adventures. You won’t want to miss it.
You might want to check out the Sex Diaries Project over at New York Mag and see if any of the diaries might strike you as having written by the likes of me. Can you spot my contribution?
Or if you’ve ever wanted me draped across your chest, go buy a Sex at Dawn t-shirt! I’m the naughty naked lass that modeled for the art work.
