Now in Print: Four Play

Vicky Squid here and I'm excited to spread the news that the Women's League of Ale Drinkers has dipped our collective toe into ebook publishing. Our first tome is a modest affair -- in size only! As you may know, there's not much for the faint hearted in the scorching hot stories of Leaguer C. Margery Kempe. And just get a load of that sexy cover by our own S. L. Johnson!

Four Play: An Erotic Romance Sampler sells for just 99¢ on Amazon. As the astute Marko Punk Rock pointed out, that's less than 25¢ per story. Such a bargain! Here's the description:

An erotic romance sampler from C. Margery Kempe, author of CHASTITY FLAME, LOVE ME LIKE A REPTILE, TEXT PLAY and many more saucy tales of love. The four tales follow a variety of lovers including a pair who take an unexpected detour from the golf course, another couple who see each other for the first time in many months after their initial tryst, two old friends revealing secrets with a childhood game of truth or date, and a first meeting in the library with unexpected sizzle. Sexual content: scorching hot!

Pick yours up today and support the League. Coming soon will be our next offering, a collection of essays from the pen of Leaguer K. A. Laity entitled The Triumph of the Carpet Beetle. You will love it!

Magpie Manifesto

Vicky Squid here! The League is on the verge of announcing an exciting new venture, so this is just a chance to tantalise you a little. At a recent meeting of the League, our intrepid traveler Kate spoke enthusiastically about the Vorticists exhibit she visited at the Tate Museum and their manifesto BLAST! in which they lay out the things they love and those they hate.

Naturally, after some careful consideration (and not a few Bolli-Stolis) we all decided that the League needed to have a manifesto, too -- et voilĂ !


Open your head.

Be natural.

Be fearless.

Be curious.

Be generous.

Fly with your own wings.

Speak with your true voice.

Laugh freely.

Take what you need.

Look at everything.

Relish joy.

Don't denigrate what comes easily to you.

Let the wildness of your visions intoxicate you.

Trust the secrets of your muse.

Never apologize for your truth.

Is it the Ides of Women's History Month already?

A big glass of ale out there to all my sisters who happily decide what's best for them and live their lives according to their own choices.  This month just serves to remind us all that we do have choices and to perhaps think about all the people before us who have striven to give all women an equal voice. We're not be there yet in terms of total equality, but we get closer every day and we need to support each other.

(And remember, we still need submission for the next e-zine!  March 21st is the deadline....)

Now that I've got your attention, I want to remind you that the next issue of the Journal of the Women's League of Ale Drinkers has a deadline in the not too distant future:

March 21st

Send us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses -- or rather, send us your artistic visions yearning to be free!

We need artists, musicians, writers, crafters and people of unusual abilities to send us their stuff. Send us your high quality JPEGs, your links to MP3s or videos, your Word documents or websites. We want to highlight some fabulous women artists, but we also want your thoughts on ALE and its DRINKING. We want your musings on SEX and all that provokes because this issue will be out at Beltane (let's hope the snow's gone by then). BE WILD! Be interesting -- because the only sin is being BORING.

We hope to have some print copies of the journal available, too; we still can't pay for contributions, but consider your piece to be advertisement for your work and include all the necessary linkage to your sites.

As always, you can send you offerings, files and questions to me, Vicky. Join the League; raise your glass.
