In The Flesh Recap and Video!

I am home after a busy week and weekend last week, having headed to New York on Tuesday for a mini-vacation that included reading at In The Flesh for Nerd Sex Night last Thursday before heading to Atlantic City Friday for a bachelorette party on Saturday. I arrived home yesterday afternoon and, um, went to sleep.

I had a magnificent time reading at In The Flesh last week and thank curator Rachel Kramer Bussel again for inviting me. Rick Write and I were joined by Erobintica and her husband and a friend at the reading, and I was especially delighted to get to see her and have all of them in the audience. The picture at the top of this post was taken by Rick, and Rachel took the picture on the right of my boots as I was reading. :)

I was the last reader of the night (giving me plenty of time to feel nervous ;)), following a marvelous lineup of readers whose bios may be read here. The audience seemed to me lovely throughout the night, including during my reading, and there were free copies of SexIs magazine and of course abundant cupcakes. Rachel also had hot-off-the-press copies of her brand new anthology Please, Sir: Erotic Stories of Female Submission (which includes my story “Power over Power”) for sale!

I was blushingly (made-up word alert) flattered to see this review that Rachel posted via the In the Flesh Facebook fan page the day after the reading. I am so glad it was enjoyed and was especially flattered and appreciative to see that the reviewer plans to procure Best Women’s Erotica 2010 as a result. Thank you very much to Geeky Sex!

In addition, the impressively prompt (it seems to me anyway) In The Flesh videographer has already made the videos available on Rachel’s YouTube channel. So without further ado, here is the video of my reading at Nerd Sex Night last week, Thursday, April 15, at In The Flesh in New York:

Thank you again to all involved, and all who came out to watch/listen!

  1. What a great reading! That was some excellent crowd response, Em.

  2. Erobintica says:

    It was a wonderful evening Em. It was fun to meet “Rick” and get to hear you read live. Hugs.

  3. OMG, I loved “Shift Change” when I read it, but this smokin’ hot performance truly brings out the genius of the story, especially the sexy humor! You look absolutely gorgeous, too–what a lucky crowd for Nerd Night. (I can personally attest that computer-savvy Nerds are pretty damn smokin’ hot in or our of back alleys ;-)

  4. Oh, wow, that’s so awesome! I was LOL-ing right along with the live audience. What an expertly written and delivered tale of hot, spontaneous eros blended with exquisite wit! Your voice is the perfect vehicle.

    OK Emerald, if I smoked I’d need a cigarette right about now! I loved the story when I first read it, but seeing you read it aloud is really hot. Nice boots too ;-)

    Thank you so much Jacque. I so appreciate your reading it and your watching the video. :) And glad you enjoyed it of course!

    I love boots. ;)

  11. Neve Black says:

    Um, me thinks those boots were made for more than just walking!

    You look so sexy, sweetie. :-)

    Thank you Neve! I am such a lover of boots. :)
