AKA the night that Daniel Handler called me a skank. This was for a great Shipwreck SF event, run by Amy Stephenson and Casey Childers and hosted by The Booksmith. Hear the reading of some pretty meta tentacle porn here.
For the last five or so months, I've been writing for the amazing bookstore event, Shipwreck, an erotic fan fiction contest that's just as ridiculous as it sounds. It's hosted by The Booksmith, which is a great indie located on the street where I live. This picture is from my 6th win, at the amazing Shameless Shipwreck, featuring authors Andrew Sean Greer, Michelle Richmond, Seanan McGuire, Alexis Coe, Ken Grobe with the stories read by Daniel Handler himself.
The prize when you win Shipwreck is to come back and write again. Which is dubious, but great fun. Writing a bunch of smut was pretty ok. If you're in SF, you should go.
