Hangin' With the Lay-days

When you come home from a night out on the town (well, Brooklyn) with a copy of NAUGHTY SPANKING: STORIES FROM A TO Z by Rachel Kramer Bussel in your big purple purse, you know you've had one hot little evening.
But when you've not only secured a copy of the book for bedtime reading, but have gotten to chat with the Lusty Lady author herself, well, you count that as a great night out.

Not only did I get to spend time with the very cool Mizz RKB, but I also had some excellent conversations with authors like Lisa Selin Davis who wrote the book BELLY (www.LisaSelinDavis.com), Katherine Stewart, of THE YOGA MAMAS, fame, I ran into Elise Miller, author and curator of EAST SIDE ORAL (www.elisemiller.com), rode the subway to and fro with the brilliant Suzanne Dottino, literary director of the KGB reading series, waved hello to Alicia Brooks, the newly minted Rights Unlimited super agent, had a funny if initially awkward then ultimately cool conversation with Amanda Stern, proprietress of the Happy Ending Reading Series, who'd been featured in an earlier post concerning rejection letters, ahem... and, of course, winked at my illustrious co-author ex-Ithacan Kaplan.

What brought all of these wonderful women to the large and lovely home of Lisa Selin Davis? Well, it was a gathering of The Old Girls Club, the brainchild of Felicia Sullivan (www.feliciasullivan.com) and Leigh Newman (Leigh, do you have a website yet?), literary salon directors--Felicia runs a night at KGB, Leigh runs one at Junno's--and amazing writers themselves. They thought it would be a great idea to marshal brains, beauty & carpal tunnel ravaged hands in one big room. And I concur, it was a fantastic idea indeed and there wasn't even one cat fight (which was slightly disappointing, so I just had to come home and watch Cat House on HBO instead.)

The only problem is now I have a whole lotta new books on the list that I'm itching to read -- but perhaps I'll have some time on my hands if my date decides to read Rachel's book to me...
