While at Eroticon this weekend, something came up that I think deserves a bit of a discussion. While watching a S&M demo, I looked around the room at the audience in attendance, and noticed that there were a few members who did not seem comfortable with the situation. After the demo was done, there was a brief discussion about what we (as the audience) just saw. One individual brought up what I had noticed. In turn, Rubyyy Jones asked those in attendance who had never seen an actual session before.
A small number in attendance raised their hands. Rubyyy then asked those who had their hands in the air if they had ever written about BDSM before. The conversation kind of fizzled out from there, which was a shame, since it really could have expanded on the concept as a whole – do some fetish authors write without experiencing the activities they write about, and on a lesser note, does the reader ever notice the difference?

I had an amazing time at Eroticon this weekend. It’s given me a much needed battery recharge and reaffirmed that what I do is valid, appreciated, and profitable. Rather than go into a long journaling session, I thought I’d list a few thoughts I had about my experiences at this erotica writer’s conference.

If you missed the free run of Snow White and the Seven Fetishes around Valentine’s Day, you’ve just got lucky! In celebration of Eroticon 2012, I am offering up my debut erotica ebook for free for today only on Amazon.
When Snow White learns that her stepmother is trying to murder her, she finds a rather unique place to hide out – a fetish brothel. She earns her keep through fetish centered sessions with the seven men who run the brothel. Read as Snow White learns the skills needed for both a submissive slave and a powerful FemDom, and unlocks her kinky side in this bondage erotica.
Don’t have Kindle? No problem! You can download a reader for your computer directly from Amazon – for free as well!
Get your quick and dirty fetish fix with Snow White and the Seven Fetishes!

In a few hours, I’ll be heading off to Eroticon2012, the UK’s premier event for sex bloggers and erotica writers. I’ll be tweeting throughout the event (as well as the pre-event parties and post-event debauchery), and throwing up a few pics on TwitPic as well.
Stay tuned as well for a special something that I’m giving away the day of the conference.
In order to keep up with the events, make sure you are following me on twitter – @RubyGoodnight!
I hope that everyone attending has a great day, and I look forward to mingling and meeting up with new friends and connections.

I’m pretty chuffed that I’ve been profiled on the Eroticon 2012 web site as a delegate. I know I’ve been going on and on about this upcoming collection of adult bloggers and erotica writers, but it’s an amazing, first-of-its-kind event for those of us in the UK who write this type of material.
The lovely lady who is running it, Ruby (great kinky minds think alike when it comes to pen names), is doing an unreal job of pulling together all the bits and bobs that go along with an adult workshop / erotica conference. I do take my hat off to her, and hope I get to meet her as well as the other erotica writers around the UK who will be in attendance.
Check out the interview with me, Ruby Goodnight, on Eroticon2012′s blog.

In case you missed a previous post of mine, there’s a great convention happening in the UK called Eroticon 2012. It’s a place where sex bloggers and adult writers can get together, do a bit of networking, and take part in some amazing workshops. The £100 price tag may seem like a bit of a pocket hit, but it’s a lot less if you take into account that participants will be receiving a £50 voucher for LoveHoney. If you’re doing this as a business, like me, you can always take it off as a business expense!
I’m making a weekend of it, myself. I’ve bought my conference ticket, and just sorted out the train tickets to get me from my home in the High Peak to Bristol. I’m just waiting for another invoice to be paid off, then I’ll get my room at the Premier Inn taken care of too. I’m looking forward to meeting other erotica writers and putting some faces to the names that I’ve been reading for so long. I’ve had a look at the workshop offerings, and they’re just too good to choose from.

I was having a play on Twitter this morning (@RubyGoodnight, btw), and I came across a conference for erotica writers in the UK – Eroticon 2012. I had been looking for some kind of adult conference to go to for a while, but most of the social networking circles I run in center around the pornography side of the adult industry – not really a place for a writer like me. I’m quite excited about it. First payday in the new year will be going to paying for this 1 day erotica writer’s event!
Now, I just need to find a place to stay in Bristol that’s somewhat close to the venue, and sort out train times and whatnot. Maybe I’ll be able to find a few other cons like this in the new year.
