You may have noticed in the media lately that there has been a big response to a new book that has been published.
It is this one here. I am not going to put the name of it on the blog because I don't want traffic to it. Someone I know might stumble on my blog and I would not be too pleased about that.
It has everyone all hot under the collar because it has brought erotic writing back into fashion.
Did it ever go out of fashion? I don't think so.
There was also a big deal made of the fact that a middle aged woman wrote it. Because we all know that anyone middle aged is incapable of writing about erotica. Dried up old prunes that we are.
Anyway, I read a bit of it at book club and just want to say it is badly written fan fiction.
I could do better than that.
In fact, one day I just might. I will wait until I am, oh, seventy, and publish a leather bound book on all sorts of rumpy pumpy stories that will shock and awe people.
Seventy is a good age to write about sex.
Any age is a good age to read about it.
