Fame at last…probably not…

I am suffering my usual reluctance to share this, but on the other hand…I was on the Lorraine show! I KNOW, right? That’s me on the front page of their website with the cheesy grin.

Well, it wasn’t just me – I was featured with the rest of the Mucky Book Club as part of the launch of Lorraine’s Racy Reads competition.

I have refused to watch it, but I’m told I’m a star in the making (*cough*), so you can watch it here: The women who adore steamy reads.

June’s Mucky Book – Deep Purple by Mayra Montero

Deep Purple was published in 2000 by Puerto Rican novelist, Mayra Montero.

It follows the reminiscences of a music critic who has reached retirement. As he reflects on his long career, we learn that he has sought out erotic encounters with a variety of virtuoso musicians.

Deep Purple has fallen out of print in the UK, but plenty of copies are available on Amazon.

April’s Mucky Book Club read: Beauty’s Punishment by A N Roquelaure

After the success of Interview with a Vampire, Anne Rice took on the nom de plume A N Roquelaure (an 18th century cloak), and returned to her erotic literary concerns of the 1960s.

Despite the fact that she only revealed her true identity in the 1990s, the Sleeping Beauty books were a huge commercial and critical success, out-selling her vampire novels. They represent an erotic reimagining of the Sleeping Beauty story, in which Beauty is awoken from her hundred-year sleep by a prince who inducts her into a realm of sexual exploration. The books are known for their sadomasochistic content (which has proved controversial) as well as their surreal, fairytale narratives.

For this month’s Mucky Book Club, we’re reading the second part of the trilogy, Beauty’s Punishment.

Mucky Book Club will take place on 14th April 2011:

– live at The Ship, Wandsworth at 7pm

– on Twitter from 7.30pm under the hashtag #muckybooks

If you can’t make it on 14th, don’t despair – read along anyway, and add your comments to the bottom of this post!
