It's THAT Time Again!

Yes, the BDSM Writers Con is coming up in a little over two months. If you're a reader or writer of stories with a BDSM slant, or if you're interested in learning more about this lifestyle, mark your calendars to attend the third annual conference. You can register here.

Thursday, August 18 through Sunday, August 21
Skyline Hotel
51st Street and 10th Avenue
New York City

Here's the link for the daily program schedule. In brief:

For those who arrive early, Wednesday evening includes the Author Buddy Program, which will pair novice writers with published authors, and an informal Mix 'n Mingle.

Registration is Thursday morning, then Dr. Charley Ferrer, host and founder of the Con, will introduce best-selling author Sierra Cartwright, our Keynote Speaker. Workshops begin in the afternoon and the Golden Flogger Award winners will be announced at the cocktail party.

Friday brings workshops and demos as well as a Publishers' Panel, followed by editor/agent appointments. The BookFair is scheduled for Friday afternoon.

Saturday is probably the most eagerly awaited workshop day, as live demos by knowledgeable practitioners will be offered throughout the day. These demos will include Shibari rope bondage, knife play, violet wand, Dominance and submission, and other exciting kinks. And to top it off, a visit to a dungeon is also part of the curriculum.

Sunday includes breakfast and a special closing event.

Some of my readers might recall that I've blogged about my previous conference experiences. Here are two of my most-read blogs, Parts III and IV about the very first BDSM Writers Weekend Workshop in 2012, "All Hands on Deck" and "Getting Naked at Paddles".

Register now for the 2016 BDSM Writer Con. Hope to see you there! And if you need someone to hold your hand at the dungeon, I will.
