If You're Listening (Whoa oh oh oh oh oh), Sing it Back

Once again, I have fallen down on the job with the Man Candy Monday. But, in my defense . . . actually I don't have one. Other than the fact that no one is really reading my blog anymore, so I've been kind of lax with putting up new posts.

It's not for lack of news, of which there is plenty. I guess I've just been feeling unmotivated knowing that the words I'm writing here are going largely unseen. Also, this is not a plea for more readers, although more readers would be nice. It is just a statement of fact.

Despite those feelings, as I stated above there is some good news to report, so I might as well share it. My story, The Number 91, has been accepted into the Best Lesbian Erotica 2011. It is edited by Kathleen Warnock and guest edited by the hilarious Lea DeLaria and I'm honored to be a part of it.

But, the big news is, I'm going out on the road next week. I'll be the featured reader for the second time at the Erotic Literary Salon in Philly on Tuesday, the 19th. Then, I'll be wisking my way to the Big Apple to participate in one of the last remaining In the Flesh readings on Thursday the 21st, with the lovely Neve Black, Lana Fox and many more. It is hosted by the wonderful Rachel Kramer Bussel. This is my second time reading at In the Flesh and I'm happy to be returning for one of the last gatherings at Happy Ending Lounge.

So, if you're going to be around those places at either of those times, come check it out. You won't be sorry.

I'm reading! I recently started a blog, mostly so I can follow friends' blogs without a ton of bookmarks. Just have my own and read who I follow.
I also started it because of my upcoming surgery and want to get it all on one page so I don't have to keep repeating my story to everyone who wants to know how I'm doing, they can just come here.
Love today's man candy, how come there's never someone like that in the Perkiomen creek when I go walking in it? Oh yea, that's right, I live in Schwenksville.
I would love to come see you read in Philly sometime. Don't think I can make the 19th. I'm having a surgical procedure (part of pre-op work for the "big" surgery) on Friday and probably won't be back in shape by the 19th. Ya never know, I may show up.

Thanks for reading, Lara! I'll have to check out your blog. I wish you the best of luck for your surgery. And, hopefully very soon, a guy from my blog will come to the Perkiomen just for you.

I'd love it if you could make it to the reading. But, if you can't, I'll probably be doing another one in the future. I'll keep you posted.

So looking forward to having you back at In The Flesh next week, it's going to be wonderful! Readers: if you can't make it, please tell someone in NYC. There are only 3 In The Fleshes left, and there are always free cupcakes and HOT readings. We are also taping this one so it'll be online soon.
