Welcome to my blog of erotica, Little Italy here in Pittsburgh and so much more. Since I publish a niche blog I have to from time to time put up a blog post like this one to let the world know that I’m here, that my blog is here. This is a shout-out.
Now when I say this is a blog of erotica I mean I publish erotic flash fiction by talented contributors from all over the world and I publish my own erotic flash fiction. I guess you could say I’m in my gangbang stories phase. I also blog about how to write flash fiction in general and how to write flash fiction erotica in particular. I have an MFA in fiction writing and I got paid for my flash fiction until I started using it exclusively for my own blog.
Erotica as an art form has a long and respected history since before Moll Flanders to Tropic of Cancer to Fifty Shades of Grey.
Here on this blog of erotica, we take our sex as art and entertainment seriously.
And what about Little Italy here in Pittsburgh? I live in the Oakland neighborhood of the city which is home to the University of Pittsburgh where I got my MFA in 2006. But Bloomfield (Little Italy) is where I do my drinking. Little Italy is about a fifteen-minute walk from my apartment. I drink at Armand’s on Liberty Avenue in Little Italy and at Nico’s on Saturday nights, which is in Little Italy, too. I try to make it to Nico’s for karaoke at least the first two Saturdays of each month.
So I report on the comings and goings of the five or so blocks that make up the business district on Liberty Avenue and the karaoke scene at Nico’s and anything else that may catch my fancy that has to do with local interests like the Pirates and the Steelers and the Pittsburgh Marathon.
In other words you get a view of the world through the eyes of a baby boomer who also writes flash fiction. Like I said, this is a niche blog.
