February 21st: Zane and Stephen Elliott!

I've got a real superstar lineup for you at In The Flesh on February 21st, and you will want to get there EARLY! Who's joining us? Why, the one, the only Zane! I am so, so excited and thrilled by this, not to mention that my story "Devil's Worship" is being published in her hardcover anthology Succulent: Chocolate Flava II, which you will have a chance to purchase and get signed on 2/21, courtesy of Mobile Libris. Also reading from Succulent, in addition to me and Zane (who you can also add on MySpace and read her blog there), will be author Michelle Robinson. Here's the superhot cover:

But that's not all! I've also got San Francisco author Stephen Elliott with his explosive new book Sex for America: Politically Inspired Erotica which has the most amazing lineup of authors, all of whom can be seen on the cover below (I'm making it big so you can see the authors' names). Joining him will be Nick Flynn, author of Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, and both will read from Sex for America. Author photo of Stephen Elliott by Lizzy Brooks. Read more about him here.
