Smut in the City, well...in the city of Manchester that is

I attended my second reading slam event ever, on Saturday 24th October in Manchester. The day began at the Bangkok Bar & Restaurant at  40 - 44 Princess St, Manchester M1 6DD, then on to Chapter One Bookshop Cafe, for the evening event.




The event was organised by Victoria Blisse and her husband Kev, and it was a pleasure to attend as everyone is so welcoming.





Chapter One is situated in the Northern Quarter of Manchester on Lever Street at Chatsworth House, 19 Lever Street, Manchester, United Kingdom, M1 1BY

To say I was a tad nervous is a major understatement. I, of course had a large glass of red wine for Dutch courage, prior to reading my piece. Although I know I wasn't the only nervous one that day.

Why should you visit a smut event?
--------------------------------------------------
Aural Pleasure! That’s why! It’s a wonderful way to stimulate your mind. Our Reading Slams feature incredibly talented writers from the world of Erotica and Erotic Romance reading out short excerpts from their published stories to tease, inspire and delight you. You never know quite what you might hear next and where that might lead you, it’s a fabulous way to discover new authors, new books and maybe even new genres for you to explore.

Visual Pleasure! We'll have fabulous performances to tease, inspire and delight you. Watching a partners reaction to whats being performed can be a stimulating experience all of it’s own, and could lead to maybe discovering a new kink or way to tease which can be incredibly exciting and is highly recommended.

Educational Pleasure! With informative workshops and demonstrations, you'll not only experience but you'll learn as well. Coming away with new ideas and new skills.

Fabulous Goodie Bags were be provided to the first 50 guests who arrive on the day.

They had  delicious food & snacks and various drinks offers available at the bar throughout the day.

The day began proper at 11.25 with a welcome from the Queen of Smut Victoria Blisse.

Next up at 11.30am was a teaching session from Liv Honeywell and Ashley R Lister. This was a session with instruction on how to write, and also with instruction of how to go about reading in public. The two as you can well imagine are very different things. This was an interactive workshop and very informative. A boon before I myself had to perform also.

Lunch was 12.15 until 1.15 pm, and a chance for people to meet and greet a little more, and reconnect with others that I had met at Sexibition in August. Sexibition was the first time I had read a piece from my books in public.

There were three reading slams in total, and I was rather glad that I was in the first one, but not the first performer. That way I could then chill with another large glass of red wine and enjoy the other performances.

Those performing in the three reading slams were Bella SettarraKay JaybeeScarlett Flame, Zak Jane KeirVictoria BlisseK D GraceLiv Honeywell Erotica, Ashley R Lister, Helen J Perry, Deana CarrollJanine Ashbless - author pageAnna Sky EroticaLucy Felthouse and Slave Nano. 

The time limit for the readings was 5 mins and if you went over your allotted time, you gort spanked. Needless to say I DID go over - Bad girl.

The event was also attended by a number of bloggers including Just_Indecerous , Horny GeekGirl, Lola Sparkles, and Anna Sky. Check out their blogs please.

Unfortunately Jennifer Denny who was due to read but couldn't attend the event, so graciously, she has allowed me to post the reading slam she would have read out at the event. Enjoy.

This is from a story I have out at Christmas, called Naughty Christmas Wishes. The setting for this story is that Fay, an old fairy from the top of the Christmas Tree, has been discarded in favour of a brand new angel (ahhhh!). She goes to a paranormal bar to drown her sorrows and sees four hunky elves. Closing her eyes she makes a wish…

I wish, for once, that a young, handsome elf would be interested, and not see me as an ageing fairy, ready for the scrapheap…
A hand fondled her neck and Fay jumped.
As she turned to see who was touching her she nearly fell out of her seat when she saw it was King, one of the elves.
“I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to startle you.”
“I saw you sitting here by yourself. No-one should be on their own at Christmas. Can I get you a drink?” 
For a few moments, Fay couldn’t talk—unable to believe her ears. Was the most beautiful, and sexy, creature in the room really talking to her?
King smiled down at her and her pussy flooded. “Of course, if you are waiting for someone else, I’ll leave you alone.”
She clutched his arm to steady herself—well, to stop him leaving, in actual fact.
The elf wrapped an arm around her waist.
Holy Christmas! That is soooo good.
She leaned in toward him.
“Join us?” he said, nodding at his friends who were all waving her eagerly to come to their table.
“Sure.” Fay’s voice was very husky as King led her over.
Part of her mind was flabbergasted wondering if her wish had been granted.
Surely not? Her wishes never get answered. But just in case the wish fairy was working extra time this Christmas, Fay quickly made another one.
Please, please, can I have sex with at least one of these gorgeous hunks tonight?
“So, Fay, what’s a lovely fairy like you doing in a joint like this?”
As she raised her eyes to the ceiling, the other elves all hooted and slapped Ringo on the head.
He looked incredulously at them. “Well, I meant, it’s Christmas Eve. We rarely see any fairies in here at this time of year.”
Everyone turned to look at Fay with matching expressions of curiosity.
Fay shifted uneasily. “Umm. Well, I kinda lost my job.”
King rubbed her back. It felt marvellous. “Kind of? Or for real?” he asked in a quiet, soothing voice.
She shrugged. “For real, I guess. They took me down off the tree and put a shiny new angel in my place.”
Elliott swiftly stood up, the legs of his chair screeching as he propelled it backwards. “How dare they throw you out in the street?”
Fay flushed. “Actually, they didn’t throw me out. Just shoved me in a corner. I’m the one that left home.”
King wrapped his arms around her, pulling her tightly against his body. She could feel his cock. It was large and hard and she wanted him badly.
“I could be corny like Ringo and say, no-one puts baby in the corner, but I think baby made her own way out of the corner.”
She giggled and hugged him back, pressing her pelvis into his. Meanwhile, Elliott came around the table to cuddle her from behind. Fay didn’t know whether to push into King or press back into Elliott.
Then Ringo stood and moved to stroke her hair, dipping his head to nibble her earlobe. Fay was unable to breathe as waves of lust came over her. Taking a shuddering breath, she glanced over to Harvey, who gave her an incredibly sexy grin that made her legs start to fold.
“Whoa. Are you tired or something?” asked King in worry.
Fay held tightly onto King’s strong arms as he stepped back to check her out. “I’m fine, really. Just a little overwhelmed with all the attention.”
Ringo crossed his arms and leaned back against the table. “Seems to me some ‘attention’ is exactly what you need.” He smirked and dipped his head on one side. “How about it, King? You can attend to one part of our Fay. I can attend to another. E.T and Harve can do their thing, too.”
Their thing? What exactly is that, Fay wondered, as her breathing started to accelerate to racing car speed at the thought of having not one elf, but all four?
King cupped her face. “Sounds good to me, if Fay is up for it?”
She couldn’t talk, just nodded her head vigorously.
As they led her to the hotel rooms upstairs, Fay gave a final wish.

Please let me keep up with all of them. Or keep them up, at the very least…

A number of stalls were at the Bangkok Bar & Restaurant including Kink Craft, Nippleicious, Dark Rose Desires, Karen Stockton, Ian THE Smut Peddlar (and Lucy Felthouse his glamorous assistant) Roissy Workshops - RWN, Mistress Cara Sutra and Crafts on caffeine. The whole day was a huge success, and well worth attending.

I made myself a very fetching flogger in purple and black, with the able assistance of Kinkcraft, and it was mine to keep for free.




We were treated to a burlesque performance from Blue Belle Burlesque and also had a workshop with Zak Jane Keir about "Word Building" in regard to Historical/paranormal/Sci-fi/Steampunk wrirting. A very valuable one for myself as my next book has all those genres and sub-genres in it.

Of course there was the ubiquitous Dungeon that gave me both a thrill and some trepidation.




Also attending this event were a number of bloggers, including Justin Decorous, 

The event wrapped up about 6pm and we were led crocodile style through Manchester to the next venue, and after party in the Northern Quarter by Dr Sketchy himself.

The Chapter One bookstore is an utterly amazing venue, and much bigger than I expected. I was very pleased to visit as I am there in January next year for a pop-up book signing event.






The evening performances were ably supplied by the two gorgeous gals from Monster Cirque. They were Bea Noir and Kitty Retsnom.  Bea opened with an amazing, sensual  pole dance, after which we had the opportunity to sketch a picture of her. Needless to say my sketching abilities to not match my writing abilities and I failed to win any prizes, but had a lot of fun taking part.








We were then entertained by an exotic belly dance, reminiscent of the 
dance of the seven veils, performed  by Kitty Retsnom. We then did two sketches of Kitty, one of her upper torso and anther of her, beautifully posed. There were some very professional sketches produced by members of the audience.

The final act was provided once more by Bea, dressed as a very sexy clown and dancing and posing ( scarily) on a bed of nails. We once again attempted to capture her likeness as she posed, on said bed of nails.

All in all a fantastic enjoyable day and evening was had by all. Can't wait to meet up with all these amazing folk again very soon.  Photos from a variety of sources included D N Photography Manchester 



This is the pop-up book signing event I am attending in January at Chapter One, Manchester.

                           Tickets will be made available closer to the date itself
