Can I be your Valentine?
Let me read you a Bedtime Story!
I haven't been the best Valentine lately.
I promised you contests and I promised you free stuff. I said you'd be special. But what have I done for you lately?
Well, you are
special. You're my e-newsletter readers, and this month, I have something JUST for you. It will be our little secret, OK?
Normally, I encourage you to share information about my books, stories, etc., but this month, I'm releasing the links to follow just for you. Please don't share them. I don't want them to become public because, well, they're a little racy. And I thought - what better Valentine's Day gift to give you, my friends, fans and mailing list members?
OK, get on with it already,
Here's the deal. Last week, I did a special "Not Your Parent's Valentine's Day" edition reading at Chicago's Tuesday Funk show. I read an unpublished erotic-humor story called "Cheerleader for the Labia." (Don't look for any horror in this one!) It's a er
, stirring love story about a geek voyeur and a kinky exhibitionist. A match made in heaven. Or cheerleading hell. The reading went over great -- with lots of audience participation (I never thought in my life that I would have a room of 50 people shouting out the word "Labia" at the top of their lungs. Life throws some funny curves that way.)
I'm not releasing this video publicly, for, I think, obvious reasons. Nor will I likely ever publish the story. So this link is between you and me. I hope you'll click the image below and listen, smile and enjoy. Oh and... I wouldn't advise playing this at work.
Let me read to you some more...
If the "Cheerleader" isn't enough for you, I also did a special recording a couple months ago for the BDSM Reading Group on Goodreads.com. I recorded an audio reading (with occasional sound effects) of two chapters from NightWhere
, which are also posted on YouTube -- also on a private link. So don't spread this one around either.
This is for you.
