Our next reader is Colleen O'Hare and she's going to be reading a story with a title that I predict will win the In The Flesh award for the most intriguing (and long) title of 2009 - "Fresh Fish: A True to Life Accounting of the Role Cod Played in Losing My Virginity." And I'm sure after trekking through that title you'll want to know more about the mind and fingers behind that teaser. Well read on ... After attaining her masters in commercial writing and strategic branding, Colleen O’Hare began her career as an advertising copywriter. Her work won many awards including The One Show, Communication Arts, New York Festival, Show South, and ABC-TV's "The Funniest TV Commercials You've Never Seen." Now a television writer/producer and comedian, she has worked for many shows, including “Blind Date” and E! Network’s “True Hollywood Story,” and most recently for ReelzChannel’s “Secret’s Out,” “What It Takes,” and “The Checklist.” She also developed, produced and directed “Feed-Back,” a series of comedic short segments for Food Network, and helped to establish the tone and format for Style’s first red carpet coverage of the Golden Globes. A finalist for the ABC/Disney Television Comedy Writing Fellowship, her humorous articles have appeared in The Onion, and her one woman show, “Damaged, but Not Dead,” was chosen for the prestigious First Look festival, with successive engagements in New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and Los Angeles. She’s performed stand up at the world-famous Comedy Store, The Punch Line, and The Ice house, studies with The Groundlings and Improv Olympic West, and has appeared in numerous commercials and films, and oh yeah, cod had something to do with her becoming an ex-virgin.
And we have two new regular features to debut as well as free goodies from the Hustler Hollywood Cafe. One feature is called Erotica Review of the Month courtesy of the Erotica Revealed website. I'll be reading one of their top-quality reviews about a recently released work and we can discuss whether we agree with the critique and the points it makes about what makes for good one-handed reading - sorry 'erotic' - writing. The Erotica Review of the Month is going to be Frenzy: 60 Stories of Sudden Sex, Edited By: Alison Tyler on Cleis, November 2008, Reviewed By: Steven Hart. Our next feature fits perfectly with the Erotic Review of the Month and it's called Phone Sex where we call up an out-of-town author and have them read their work to us over the phone. So we're going to dirty dial D.L.King who wrote "Hard Wet Silk," in Frenzy. How about that! And D. L. King also publishes and edits the review site, Erotica Revealed (eroticarevealed.com). She most recently edited the Cleis Press anthology, Where the Girls Are: Urban Lesbian Erotica, due to be released this July, and she is currently editing a vampire erotica anthology, also for Cleis Press, due to be released this Fall. She is the author of two novels, The Melinoe Project and The Art of Melinoe. Her work can be found in anthologies such as The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica, Best Women’s Erotica, Best Lesbian Erotica, Girl Crazy, Frenzy, Yes, Ma’am and Yes, Sir. Find her at dlkingerotica.com and come hear her purr some Phone Sex at Hustler Hollywood's In The Flesh 2009 Inaugural night - Wednesday, January 14 at 8pm.
Oh yeah - and I'll be spinning some appropriate music to get you in the mood for nu-smut.
