This month, he brought in Jacqueline Carey (Dark Currents), Peter V. Brett (The Daylight War), and Robert V. S. Redick (The Night of the Swarm. All of them are some of my favorite writers.

The topic? Writing Fantastic Sex! I think that’s a topic we can all agree to watch! Here is the video playback of this wonderfully titillating topic (see what I did there?)!

Enjoy and share! Some great advice there for burgeoning writers having difficulty tackling this difficult topic in their own writing!
