Eroticon or bust?

Sandra Lindsey/ March 8, 2017/ Conference/ 0 comments

Oh gosh… Eroticon… Well in the immediate aftermath of arriving home, I did write up a post about things I brought home from Eroticon, but really it’s about so much more than that. I mean, it started *months* ago! I couldn’t afford to go to any big cons last year, so when the news came through to my inbox that

Ten Things I Took Home from Eroticon

Sandra Lindsey/ March 6, 2017/ Conference/ 6 comments

So. Yes. Eroticon. Wow. As you can tell from the one-word sentences, I’m still rather in the midst of its effects. Over on that there Twitter (well, on her blog really but I saw it in a tweet), @writtenbyjenny has created a meme of “10 things I took home from Eroticon”, so while my thoughts are still gathering for longer

LGBT History Festival

Sandra Lindsey/ February 22, 2017/ Conference/ 0 comments

A few weeks ago I discovered that Shrewsbury – not far from me – was holding a festival in celebration of LGBT History Month. Officially called “Back In Time 2” (on account of it being the 2nd such festival held in Shrewsbury), it was a lovely mixture of formal and semi-formal presentations, informal mingling, evening entertainment and films, as well as

Best value £9.50 I’ve spent this year

Sandra Lindsey/ April 22, 2016/ Conference/ 0 comments

I’ve just got home from Abergavenny Writing Festival It’s a new event this year, and it’s a good one! Most writing-focused events I’ve been to have been ticketed for the whole event, which is great because of the atmosphere you get and the sense of it being a whole event. This festival is ticketed per event (or at least, this

UK Meet part 2

Sandra Lindsey/ September 18, 2015/ Conference

Off on adventures with Husband this weekend, so thought I’d best scribble down some more of my thoughts about last weekend before I forget them! Sunday was a less-cram-packed day than Saturday. I wandered up to the Marriott for Quite Early, as we had been warned in advance that the Bristol Half Marathon was on that day and there would

UK Meet 2015 – half way through!

Sandra Lindsey/ September 13, 2015/ Conference

Time seems to be flying, but in a wonderful way. UK Meet is still as friendly as ever, even with sometimes the drifting my quite numbers of people* Things done? Pirate walk round the centre of Bristol on Friday evening. Very interesting, and led by the fascinating Pirate Pete. As he made sure we knew, he was only able to

Sandra Lindsey/ August 18, 2015/ Conference, My life

Catching up with an old friend from Uni the other day, I happened to mention that I recently went to a fab writers conference, for erotica writers and sex bloggers. He replied, “Is that the one Ruby organises?” Of course, when he added that he only knows Ruby from Twitter, I enthused at him to come along to Eroticon sometime…

Eroticon 2015 day two

Sandra Lindsey/ August 2, 2015/ Conference

I’ve got a bit of a sad face on right now because I’m back home after an absolutely fabulous weekend. All good things and all that… So, what did I get up to today? First session I joined was on photography – both taking and editing photos. I think I won the “best excuse for not currently using an SLR”
