Zane is doing her thing - here's your chance to do yours!

Chocolate Seduction

Submission Deadline: September 1, 2004

Chocolate.an aphrodisiac? So they say. Come explore the many seductive practices of the rich, silky sugariness. Don't be shy, timidity is not allowed, all fantasies are indulged and all pleasures are explored in this seductive recipe created for lovers.

An addiction as sweet and fulfilling as sex, chocolate has long since been recognized for containing mood lifting agents such as Phenylethylamine and Seratonin. Now we're taking it a step further. From chocolate dildos to the stimulating chocolate aphrodisiac fragrance this delectable candy enters the bedroom, taking orgasms to even higher heights-turning chocoholics into sexaholics at the same time!

The taboo of sexual indulgence is unleashed in this collection of erotic stories designed to awaken your sweet teeth and leave you throbbing with desire.

Can you taste it? The smooth, delicate flavor of the cocoa bean as it melts on your tongue? The swirling sensation in the pit of your stomach as your nipples harden?

Can you smell it? The sweet aroma emanating from the sugary substance? The intoxicating scent of arousal on moistened, pulsating lips?

Can you feel it? Soft, velvety, creamed to perfection. The gift of orgasm whether swallowed or licked upon expulsion.

What we're looking for:

a.. Works of fiction from traditionally published, self-published and aspiring authors;

b.. purely erotica stories designed to arouse the closet freak and melt the most rigid reader into a puddle of simmering desire! Don't hold back, use the chocolate theory however you see fit but the ending result must leave somebody on the brink of orgasm.

Criteria:

a.. Fiction no more than 60 double-spaced pages
b.. Submissions will be accepted via email (Word or Word Perfect Documents Only)
c.. All submissions must include name, brief biographical statement, address, telephone numbers and email/web address
d.. No simultaneous submissions

Greetings,

If you have independently/self-published a book or are thinking about doing so I'm interested in speaking, off line, with you. I would like to interview or inquire about your needs, desires and wants when choosing or searching for the right company for an article I am doing research on.

Thanks,
Satin

Your Family History on TV!
Did your family make its mark on history? Your genealogy research
could land you on History Detectives, the hit PBS program, produced

history? If your genealogy research has turned up clues that your
ancestors played a key role in a history-making event, History
Detectives wants to help you piece the puzzle together. You and the
ghosts of ancestors past could appear on PBS's hit series this summer!

History Detectives will also feature a school-kid History Detective
this summer along with their cool case. The detectives are looking
for stories about old houses, family heirlooms, or local legends that
might contain a fascinating mystery from our nation's past. If your

Subject: The New Orleans Public Library Needs
Books

New Orleans Public Library is asking for any and
all hardcover and paperback books to restock the
shelves after
Katrina. The library staff will assess which
titles will be designated for the shelves. The rest
will be distributed to destitute families or
sold for library fundraising. The books can be
sent to:

Rica A Trigs, Public Relations
New Orleans Public Library
219 Loyola Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70112

If you tell the post office that the books are
for the library in New
Orleans, they will give you the library rate
that is less than book
rate.

Can you please share this information with the
education staff and
students? It is a great opportunity to help.
