A discussion with Salwa Al Neimi, the Syrian-born writer of erotic prose. Proof of the Honey, the underground novel which Al Neimi intended only for a few friends, has become an international sensation through its assertion that Islamic history is ripe with sensuality. Her book has been banned in most of the Arab world.

Our October 1, 2009 release date is getting closer and we are raising to raise funds for our upcoming work retitled as Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Holiday Delights. So Lit Between the Ears is turning to its readers, listeners, and partners for support.
Less than one dollar
For only 99 cents, you can help keep a radio dramatist employed, buy an ink cartridge for his printer, and replace the bulb in his desk lamp that burns out every seven days.
You can also be part of creating Mayonnaise in My Cake, the second volume of the Lit Between the Ears anthology series. Mayonnaise is being assembled publicly on our blog. As of today’s date, Mayonnaise is a list of ingredients and may be found at the following link:
We’ve also had one of the plays scheduled for Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Holiday Delights selected for Viral Cat, the Literary E-ZINE (in the alley between High Art Inc. and Low Art ‘R Us). SWING FOR THE FENCES appeared in the April 2009 issue which may be found here:
Only 99 cents
Ninety-nine cents helps cover some of the costs associated with the book such as layout, editing, and proofreading. We are also doing preliminary work on identifying artwork for the front and back covers. Click the link below to donate 99 cents:
Don’t believe it? Consider our first book
The first book – Chekhov, O. Henry, Spear and Tarkington On the Air – was published in July of 2006. It includes original and adapted works, cast lists and synopses, and a glossary of radio drama terms.
The entire contents of the book may be found at the following link:
October 1, 2009 – Believe, Simply Believe
The Table of Contents for Mayonnaise in My Cake and Other Holiday Delights is shaping up as follows:
1. Mayonnaise in My Cake (short story)
2. The Passing of Johnny Parks (radio play about a tribute to sportscaster Johnny Parks)
2.1. The Industrial Football League (signature poetic descriptions by Johnny Parks of the teams of the IFL)
3. It Suits Her
4. The Splendor in Midland (work-in-progress adaptation of The Magnificent Ambersons; begun in Volume One)
4.1. Back in Midland (title song)
5. The Empty Table (dramatization of the Missing Man and Honors Table)
6. Giving Bells (short story)
7. Swing for the Fences (baseball)
We’ll be posting finished stories and scripts, drafts, and material related to Mayonnaise in My Cake.
The goal is to have the full book published by October 1, 2009 with a bit of help from readers, listeners, and partners and a couple of 99 cent donations:
It is a long road but we will continue to:
Believe, Simply Believe

This weekend, beginning June 27, L.A. Theatre Works will air its production of Anna Camping with Henry and Tom by Mark St. Germain, starring Alan Alda, David Dukes, Lee Arenberg and Charles Durning. The broadcast can be heard locally in Southern California on Saturday from 10pm to midnight on KPCC 89.3 FM, and can also be streamed on demand at www.latw.org.
President Harding wants to be with his mistress. Industrialist Henry Ford wants to be President. And inventor Thomas Edison wonders how the three of them ever got stuck in the woods together. Inspired by an actual camping trip taken by the three men in 1921, this rollicking adventure is filled with humor, insight and surprising relevance to today’s politics. The broadcast includes an interview with playwright Mark St. Germain.
