Your Trip Into the Chapel Perilous

In The Flesh tomorrow (NYC Thursday June 19), cupcake journalism, new review

Posted by invizweb on June 18, 2008

From Rachel Kramer-Bussel’s Myspace Page:

In The Flesh is tomorrow! It’s our annual GLBT Erotica Night.

Upcoming dates are July 17 (Rachel Shukert and others), August 21 (readers from Spanked), September 18 (Ellen Sussman’s Dirty Words night), and October 16 (Oral Sex Erotica Night).

We got a great shoutout from Flavorpill, who said:

This month’s installment of Rachel Kramer Bussel’s In the Flesh reading series is queer-centric, but all dirty-minded page turners are welcome.

Trans advocate Cris Beam reads her entry from the anthology Dirty Words: A Literary Encyclopedia of Sex and former MADtv writer and standup comic Bob Smith presents sections of his raunchy novel Selfish and Perverse.

..Also reading are former sex-toy tester Carly Milne, retired burlesque and drag performer Amie M. Evans, science-fiction and fantasy enthusiast Cecilia Tan, and underground scribe Charlie Vasquez. Tonight’s diverse offerings, by turns humorous and painfully honest, will definitely get your juices flowing.

And the official details: (see site for bios and more iinfo)

Evans and Cecilia Tan (reading from her new collection White Flames), both based in Massachusetts, and Charlie Vazquez (Best Gay Erotica).

Tango magazine did a great video interview with me about Dirty Girls.

Bussel has done some of her best editorial work with .. Dirty Girls: Erotica for Women. Each and every one of the book’s 394 pages shows she knows what girls like–and you’re fortunate that she does.

Dirty Girls also got a rave review from Baltimore City Paper, which said in part:

Also, my cupcake blog Cupcakes Take the Cake had a picnic this past weekend.

You can see my photos on Flickr and sign up for our Meetup group here (next event is cupcake arts and crafts night at Etsy Labs in Brooklyn).

I shot two interviews, one with Jessie Oleson of Cakespy, the other with Jess of Melbourne, Australia bakery Sugadeaux Cupcakes.

Last but not least…I am now blogging on Tumblr. Because everyone else is doing it, so why not?
