Sexapalooza 2010

Sexapalooza was great again this year! It turns out I have a fan club and they came to Sexapalooza to see me...

The people in the picture are Jennifer, Stephanie, Opal (me), Julie, Kai and Richard.

Sexapalooza 2009

Sexapalooza was a lot of fun this year! I hope you enjoy the pictures below.

My friend's son helped us out at the booth. He decided to dress to suit the show, slave collar and all.

Here's Nick and my husband, Mark. They both handed out bookmarks and told people about my books.

Here's me all ready to sign some books.

A Canadian publisher, Lachesis Publishing, joined me at the table. LeeAnn and Mark are standing by the Lachesis books. We also had some of Kayla Perrin's books, a friend and wonderful author from Toronto.

Here's me with one of the sexy firefighters from the 2009 Great Boys of Fire calendar.

The stage shows and demonstrations were a lot of fun... and great research! I particularly liked the bondage sheets demonstration. These are sheets onto which cuffs can quickly and easily be attached with Velcro.

Here's a victim.... ahem, I mean volunteer... from the audience helping to demonstrate the bondage sheets. The demonstrator--who did a fabulous and fun job of showing us the ropes--showed how to use the included tethers.

I wish I'd gotten pictures of how he respositioned her legs in various ways. Quick and easy, and pretty sexy. She jumped a little when he had her twisted in a vulnerable position... then brought out a paddle!

He asked if she was very flexible. When she said not really...

...he tightened the tethers and...

...showed her how flexible she really could be. Then he got up close and personal, showing other ways to use the cuffs. He pivoted her legs back and forth... and warned the men if they tried this at home, there could be explosive consequences.

Book Launch for SWING (February 2008)

This is me at the book launch for SWING.


Left to right is Cynthia, LeeAnn, Coreen, Teresa. These are four of my friends from my local romance
writing group -- pre-published, but all up-and-coming stars! ( LeeAnn is also my publicist.)


This is my friend, Diane, dropping by to buy my book.


Sexapalooza Ottawa (January 2008)

This is the booth I had at the Sexapalooza show, which I shared with Lachesis Publishing. I invited several local authors to drop by and do signings, including Sharon Page, Maureen Fisher, Ann O'Bannon and Patricia McCarthy.

In the pictures, you see my husband minding the booth while the rest of us checked out the show! (He worked so hard that weekend!)
