You know how you go to readings sometimes and it’s kind of boring and then someone reads something about hot horny sex and you’re like, Hey–this just got more fun! Well, that was one of the reasons I started doing Booty Call readings way back in 2002. I wanted to curate an evening where four chosen writers would ONLY read their smuttiest, dirtiest, funniest, and craziest stuff.
Booty Call was sort of a yearly thing for a while and they’ve been held at Disjecta, Plan B, and now The Blue Monk. The first one was held at a church! Some of the readers have been Viva Las Vegas, Wm. Steven Humphrey, Zach Plague, Jodi Darby, Zoe Trope, Shanna Germain, Riley Michael Parker, Lidia Yuknavitch, and poet Casey Kwang.
It’s been about three years since the last one and I even have people that always ask me, When’s the next Booty Call?
The answer is finally here. This Friday night at the Blue Monk, I will again be hosting (with my sexy wife, B. Frayn Masters) this long-awaited night of hot, dirty action.
Just look at that line-up! Not only are these people talented, but they may be the sexiest people you’ll ever see. EVER!
This, of course, will be the best way to get ready for the awesome Wordstock weekend. And if you’re at Wordstock and want to find me, I’ll probably be wandering around for a while Saturday and maybe working at the Powell’s booth on Sunday. Also, there will be some Future Tense books available to purchase at the Reading Local table. Stop by there and say hi to Gabe, the man in charge of that.
I hope to see you somewhere this weekend. It’s gonna be a festive and fun one.
