So… I’ve taken some time to write this post. Dunno why. But I have. Maybe I’ve left the stuff of the day distract me. Whatever. I’m here now. And so, apparently, is ‘Vicki & Lara.’ My first ebook.
And the best part? My book is out before any of Ileandra’s.
Strange (considering we share a body)? Oh yes.
But satisfying just the same. And I’ve taken some time today to savour that.
But that’s not the only cool thing that’s happened this week.
Electro Tease. Leicester’s only (that I know of) regular burlesque night. Friday happened to be the Boylesque night (which, as it sounds, is boys parting with clothing rather than girls). And I got called up on stage to display a ‘special talent’ with a view to winning a bag of goodies from Lush.
Well… beyond ‘making children’ I only really have one talent. The obvious one. Writing. And when I made the Face (you know the one, the I’m-slightly-embarassed-but-not-enough-to-keep-quiet-I-just-need-to-gear-up-to-it-face) it was obvious that erotica is what I specialise in. So… I wrote some erotica. Just a couple of lines. But I did it on stage. In front of a fairly decent crowd, utterly on the fly.
That was a new and exciting experience. And not just because it was a fun night, but because it’s another example of when I was able to be a writer in the open. To talk about it and introduce myself that way. That’s important.
