Erotica & Chocolate Feb. 12

January 26, 2010

I’ve just been finalized as a reader in this Valentine’s event at Book Woman in Austin, TX. A selection of the poems from my book, which are from the booklet of 35 love poems I gave to my husband on his 35th birthday, are definitely in the erotica category. I’m looking forward to reading them, with or without blushing. Now I don’t have to worry about making anyone uncomfortable, because we’ll all be reading erotica! Permission to get turned on, granted. What a perfect V-day event. Hope to see you there!

Senufa Salley: Jewelry Trunk Show
Inspired by her lifelong love of our natural environment and the human form, Senufa Salley integrates precious metals with organic materials and precious stones to create ageless jewelry pieces that are never boring and always memorable in their simplicity. Every element is given singular attention to insure the quality and distinctiveness of each piece.

One of her signature collections is the Real Woman series, begun 25 years ago when she was discovering methods for sawing into sheets of silver. Other trade mark works include hammered oval links, carved tagua seeds and mahogany seed pods. New jewelry for this Trunk Show includes silver and bronze goddesses and some new yummy leather cuffs! Visit her website at for more information.

Chocolate + Erotic Poetry Reading
After you have feasted your eyes on Senufa’s jewelry, and enjoyed the soothing sounds of Francisco’s music, stick around and feast your soul on chocolate goodies and erotic poetry. Great night to bring a date or BFF, or come solo and surround yourself with talented women’s voices! The chocolate tasting and seating will begin at 6:30 pm and the reading will begin promptly at 7:00 pm.
