Leicester Library was the place to be yesterday as there was an evening of smut! Yes, C. Margery Kempe and I took to the floor to read erotica in a library. Due to (we suspect) some prudish people not passing on information, the crowd was not large, but it was attentive – and you can’t ask for more than that!
Hoping to give myself some time to get over the nerves, I let (read: made) C. Margery read first. She entertained us with an excerpt from her erotic spy thriller novel, Chastity Flame. The fabulous humour and naughtiness had the audience eating from the palm of her hand and I must confess that the book has definitely made its way higher up my to be read list having heard juicy excerpts.
Next, I raised a few sniggers myself by reading a snippet from Fantasy Assignment, which features in my recently released collection, The Best of Lucy Felthouse. In my quest to avoid saying too many naughty words in public I read the introduction and stopped just before it got too saucy, but I’m hoping it left the story at enough of a cliffhanger that the listeners will go and search up the book to find out what happens next! I did, of course, reassure the audience that there was plenty of erotic action in the rest of the book.
A passage from fairy tale retelling Love Me Like A Reptile came next from Ms. Kempe. Another hilarious snippet of a story which raised some very odd questions about frogs during the Q&A…
We hadn’t planned it, but following C Margery’s paranormal tale was one of my paranormal tales, Bite With Height. I read the introduction to this f/f erotic romance tale set in Paris. I then left the audience on another cliffhanger.
A Q&A session followed – and the best part is it was all podcasted by the lovely Adele of Un:Bound Blogzine, who also arranged the whole evening – so a big thank you to her! 🙂 So as soon as I receive the file/s, I’ll be able to include here so you can have a listen for yourselves. But rest assured there was odd conversation about frogs, paranormal writing, getting turned on while writing and much more…
On another topic, I had the first review in this morning for The Best of Lucy Felthouse, and it’s a good ‘un! Sizzling Hot Books gave it a four out of five score, and commented:
“Overall, The Best of Lucy Felthouse is a great read. It has five stories all in different areas. It offers every reader a different tale of seduction or erotica. I would recommend The Best of Lucy Felthouse to erotica readers. Fans of Lucy’s won’t be disappointed with The Best of Lucy Felthouse.”
I’m happy with that! 🙂
