The Erotic Literary Salon will be held Tuesday, Aug. 16.  Part of the evening will feature two erotic-fiction authors who have been a married couple for over a quarter century, Jeremy Edwards and Helia Brookes. Widely published author Edwards, whose work has been described as “witty, charming, intelligent, raunchy, and wildly arousing” and whose erotocomedic novel Rock My Socks Off was released last year, returns to the Salon to read from his short stories. http://www.jeremyedwardserotica.com/

Brookes, who has been writing erotica for several years and has been published both online and in print, makes her Salon debut this month. She will be reading her story from the recently published collection Gotta Have It. One copy each of two new anthologies containing stories by Helia and/or Jeremy—Gotta Have It and Nice Girls, Naughty Sex—will be given away in the course of the evening. http://heliabrookes.blogspot.com/

Helia will lead a discussion about the challenges of making time to write, revise, and submit when writing erotica is important to you but not always a top priority. This talk will be held at the end of the Salon for erotica writers and those interested in becoming writers.
