This week, I want to share a little information about Rick Storer, the director of the Leather Archives & Museum in Chicago who will be presenting a workshop on the history of Leather. Rick will also bring a few exhibits from the Leather Archives with him. If you’ve ever wondered how the Leather Community got started and how it differs from the BDSM and D/s community, Rick’s workshop is a must as it will provide you with some interesting facts.
Below are a few more updates and a special surprise I’m sure you’ll love.
Last month, we announced our host hotel—The Roosevelt. Please be sure to reserve your room now to receive our conference discounted rate before the rooms are all taken. The reservation line is: 888-833-3969. Let them know you are with the Writers Conference and you’ll receive our special discounted rate for rooms and suites. Remember, if you’re coming in early to do some sightseeing, you’ll also receive the same great discounted rate two days pre/post conference. (Note: for everyone that emailed their room reservation to us, you must call the hotel and officially reserve your room with them. Not to worry, there’s no money down. However, you must reserve your room directly with the hotel to receive your discounted rate.) Review our hotel page for further information.
We love the fact that several of our authors’ husbands are attending BDSM Writes Con in support of their wives; and of course, to learn a little about Dominance and submission so they can help with research and development as author, Tessie Bradford, puts it. We also have several readers who are bringing their spouses and enjoying not only a great opportunity to mix and mingle with their favorite D/s authors but also discover more about the power exchange and partake in the valuable information BDSM Writers Con has to offer. If you’re planning to bring your husband (or wife) and would like to have us include them in our “special surprise appreciation”, please let us know.
And finally, our special surprise….
I’m proud to share that I was on the Dr. Oz show again this past Friday. Dr. Oz & I discussed the benefits of dieting and getting healthy so you can get back into your favorite swim suit. The show is due to air, end of April. Once I know the exact date, I’ll let you all know. The reason I bring this up is because I have four VIP tickets available for four lucky winners to attend a filming the Dr. Oz show live in New York City. These tickets are only available to individuals attending BDSM Writers Con. If you will be in New York City August 19 & 20 (Tuesday and Wednesday) and would like to attend a live filming of the Dr. Oz show, please email me directly to be entered into our raffle to win. For an added bonus gift, watch the show and tell me why I told Dr. Oz, “I can flip your switch.”
Any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. Don’t forget to email me if you’re arriving early and would like to join us for an “unofficial” evening get together for drinks and munchies Wednesday, August 20; or if you’re an author (novice or experienced) and would like to join our Author Buddy Program.
I look forward to seeing you all in August and bringing you further updates on this amazing one-of-a-kind conference as they occur.
BDSM Writers Con is the ONLY conference specifically geared toward readers and authors of Dominance and submission.
BDSM Writers Con…where fantasy and reality come together!
