Sin City, Here I Come! @MichelleGAuthor #LasVegas

According to my research, there are a number of "days" today. For example, it's Pound Cake day, Toy Soldier day, Grammar day, March Forth and Do Something day, and (my favourite) Hug A GI day. I could think of lots of things to say about any of those, but I'm a bit distracted because in just one short week, the hubby and I will be leaving the Great White North to head to Las Vegas!!!

This trip marks the first time we've really gone on vacation together in our 20+ years together. We've had weekend excursions alone and done several trips around Canada and the Northeaster US with the kids, but as a couple, we've never really had a vacation like this.

And we figured if we weren't taking the kids, we might as well go someplace with loads of adult entertainment!

We'll be doing the usual tourist things like going to the Grand Canyon, walking the strip, gambling a bit, and hanging by the pool, but we're looking forward to some spicier activities.

Did you know there's an Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas? We had no idea, but you can bet as soon as we found out, it got put on the list. According to their website, the museum "is dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience, that such pleasure must be made available to all, and that our individual sexuality belongs to each of us." Amen! (Apparently it was co-founded by a preacher?!?)

In the spirit of sexy fun, we're planning to take in a burlesque show, though we haven't decided which one yet, and hubby wants to do a tour of some of the strip clubs. I can't say that watching someone take their clothes off onstage has ever done much for me, but if he's happy, I'm happy. And with a visit to the Hustler Hollywood store on our list, I suspect we'll both be feeling fine.  😉

I'm looking forward to lots of writing inspiration on this trip. Losing It In Vegas, the first book in my Losing It series, was written without my ever having been there. My characters don't spend a lot of time outside the bedroom so it didn't matter as much, but nothing compares to actually being there when it comes to writing descriptions.

Many people remember losing their virginity as an awkward experience filled with pain and followed quickly by regret. Online hook-up site Losing It, hopes to change that. For those who’ve made it to adulthood with their virtue intact, Losing It matches virgins with experienced lovers who will make their first time unforgettable, with no embarrassing emotional entanglements. 
Losing It in Vegas is the story of twenty-one year old Rowan Cassidy who is sick of being a virgin. With no romantic prospects in sight, she turns to Losing It to find her a man willing to do the deed and leave it at that. Bruce McGovern is between lovers and stuck in a dry spell so he takes a chance with Losing It. He and Rowan meet up in Las Vegas and somewhere in the midst of all the hot sex, feelings emerge that neither of them expected.

Have you been to Vegas? What were some of your favourite things to do? What would you like to see there? Next month, I'll share some of my pics and stories!
