*Romance and erotica as an antidote to cyber-porn. An evening of discussion.*
Do you read romance novels apologetically, under the covers—secretly on your e-reader, so no one catches you at your guilty pleasure? Stop. And join M. Jane Colette <http://mjanecolette.com>, author of the steamy erotic romance *Tell Me*
https://www.amazon.ca/Tell-Me-M-Jane-Colette/dp/0008162786/ and the non-fiction essay collection on language and writing *CUNT versus PUSSY* https://www.kobo.com/ca/en/ebook/cunt-versus-pussy, Alyssa Linn Palmer, author of noir romance and gay and lesbian fiction such as award-winning Midnight at the Orpheus https://www.boldstrokesbooks.com/books/midnight-at-the-orpheus-by-alyssa-linn-palmer-760-b, and members of the Calgary chapter of the Romance Writers of America https://www.calgaryrwa.com/ in a spirited discussion of why reading (and writing ) romance and erotica is important in an age of plentiful porn. We promise, you’ll never look at ‘bodice rippers’ the same way again—and you might be inspired to start writing one of your own. https://mjanecolette.files.wordpress.com/2017/01/midnight-at-the-orpheus.jpg
Midnight At the Orpheus is Alyssa Linn Palmer’s award-winning book featuring featuring Chicago gangsters and molls engaged in the sexiest and most complicated passion triangle, with a hot and sensitive MM love affair among the background subplots.
