#MusicMonday: Harry Connick, Jr. – That Would Be Me

#ThatWouldBeMe/#O2O

harry connick jrI have never listened to one song by Harry Connick, Jr. so when I was asked to review an entire album of songs by the crooner (I call it talk-singing) I didn’t know what to expect. I actually thought I would hate it but the experience wasn’t so bad.

The album is filled with catchy upbeat love songs as well as ballads. The first track, “(I Like It When You) Smile”, will physically make you smile and even features a rap by Harry which pleasantly surprised me and threw me back a bit. “(I Do) Like We Do” has an acoustic reggae feel to it and a few other stand-outs are “Songwriter” and “(I Think I) Love You A Little Bit”.

That Would Be Me is the first time in 25 years that Harry Connick, Jr. has worked with outside producers saying, “It’s the only time I’ve violently thrown myself out of my comfort zone,’ enthusiastically agreeing to work in the studio with two ‘external’ producers.

FULL TRACK LISTING:

1.       (I Like It When You) Smile
2.       (I Do) Like We Do
3.       Tryin’ To Matter
4.       Songwriter
5.       Do You Really Need Her
6.       You Don’t Need A Man
7.       You Have No Idea
8.       Where Prisoners Drown
9.       (I Think I) Love You A Little Bit
10.    Every Time I Fall In Love
11.    Right Where It Hurts
Pre-order today! Album will be available October 23rd.

#WriterWednesday: First-Time Writer Uses Wattpad to Score a Book and Movie Deal

Anna Todd - Author of the After series.

Anna Todd – Author of the After series.

Ughh! I am so jealous of Anna Todd. She basically wrote After on her phone as a hobby and it has been viewed more than a billion times on Wattpad, a free social reading and writing app. She has since been signed to Gallery Books which is a part of Simon and Schuster!

The four-part series is also set to be made into a film by Paramount Pictures! Did Anna hit the jackpot or what?

Not only that, the story of After is fan fiction influenced by Anna’s love of Harry Styles from One Direction. I used to write fan fiction about Michael Jackson all the time as a teenager. Back then the internet was not as influential as it is now. I wish I had saved those stories. Damn.

Some people have all the luck!

Congrats, Anna 🙂

The first book in the series is thick with more than 500 pages. The story revolves around Tessa Young, an optimistic freshman at Washington State University, and the dark, troubled British bad boy who has stolen her heart.

I passed this book on to my 13-year-old daughter. It’s more her speed. She loved it and can’t wait to read the other books in the series!

#WriterWednesday: Q & A with Author and King of Verbal Seduction – Alan Roger Currie

aural sex

Dangerous Lee:  Alan, what is the title of your next audiobook and when is it scheduled to be released?

Alan Roger Currie: The title of my third audiobook is Oooooh . . . Say it Again: Mastering the Fine Art of Verbal Seduction and Aural Sex.  It is scheduled to be released on Amazon.com and Audible.com sometime between Monday, February 16, 2015 and Friday, February 20, 2015.

Dangerous Lee:  I did a Q & A with you back in 2012 about the paperback version of this same book, right?

Alan Roger Currie:  Yes, you sure did Dangerous!  And I thank you for that. Actually, the paperback version of Oooooh . . . Say it Again was my best-selling paperback title between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2014. 

My other title, Mode One: Let the Women Know What You’re REALLY Thinking is my best-selling eBook as well as my best-selling audiobook at the moment.

Dangerous Lee: Not looking for credit per se, but didn’t I help motivate you to write that book? 

Alan Roger Currie: (laughs) Yes, you actually did Dangerous, although I later changed the content. You, along with a handful of other women I know, had suggested to me way back in 2009 or 2010 that I should write a book that chronicled a lot of my hot, kinky phone sex experiences with women. 

But instead of focusing solely and specifically on my past phone sex experiences with women, I ended up writing a book that was about the whole concept of helping men develop strong ‘verbal game’ and verbal seduction skills with women.

Dangerous Lee:  How many women would you estimate that you have had phone sex with?

Alan Roger Currie:  Since 1992, which was probably the first calendar year that I really got into having phone sex with women, up until now I would estimate that I have had phone sex with about 1,700 women. What is even more interesting, is that a significant percentage of those women have actually paid me money for regular and semi-regular episodes of phone sex.

For a period of time, I actually operated as somewhat of a “Phone Sex Gigolo” for women. Having women pay me for phone sex was almost like a part-time job for me between roughly 2003 and 2009.

PhoneSex2Dangerous Lee: Why do you love phone sex so much? Do you love phone sex more than actual physical intimacy? Or do you love both erotic activities equally?

Alan Roger Currie: I have had phone sex with far more women than I have had physical sex with, but I love actual intercourse and oral sex with women more.  I started gravitating toward phone sex around the time when NBA basketball legend Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson announced that he had tested positive for the HIV virus.

After Johnson’s announcement, I became very reluctant to indulge in a high amount of unprotected casual intercourse with women.  I hate condoms.  Absolutely hate them. But I was mature enough to realize that I have to wear them if I am going to engage in short-term non-monogamous intercourse with multiple partners. 

Dangerous Lee:  When did you first earn the nickname, ‘The King of Verbal Seduction?’

Alan Roger Currie:  I’ve been given so many nicknames by women over the years, it’s not even funny.  Dangerous, even you once referred to me as ‘The King of Seducing Women into Phone Sex.’  A former lover of mine and two of her girlfriends started calling me ‘The King of Verbal Seduction’ back in the 1990s when I was living in Los Angeles.

They were impressed with my ability to seduce women into having sex with me the same day I met them as well as my ability to overcome many women’s negative reactions and harsh criticisms to my bold, straightforward, erotically explicit approach and end up having sex with those same women who had initially behaved as if I was turning them off and had insulted them and offended them. 

In my audiobook, I refer to women of that nature as “Wholesome Pretenders.”  These women will initially have a very adverse and prudish reaction to a man who is attempting to persuade them into engaging in short-term and/or non-monogamous ‘casual’ sex, but eventually, they will give in to that man’s sexual desires and requests.

Dangerous Lee:  Why do you think so many women in society behave like ‘Wholesome Pretenders?’

Alan Roger Currie: Because organized religion and other factions in society have led most women to believe that the only way they will be able to attract a husband or a long-term boyfriend is if they present themselves to men as ‘prudish, monogamy-minded good girls.’ So consequently, many women become sexually duplicitous in their behavior.

Dangerous Lee:  Any advice for freelance writers and self-employed authors?

Alan Roger Currie:  Always keep writing.  Write, write, re-write, and write some more.  I have now been a self-employed, self-sufficient author, public speaker, and professional dating coach for roughly 25 months now.  Write about what you’re truly passionate about.  Don’t wait for opportunities. Create them for yourself.

#FridayReads: 5 Must-Have Social Media Marketing Books for Artists

twitterart

It’s often said that people don’t read anymore and that things have to be dumbed down or posted in 140 characters or less for people to pay attention.

I must admit that I also find myself scanning over the hoards of information I encounter daily and I have also become a woman of few words, written or otherwise, but I do know when to give full and proper attention to pertinent information that will benefit myself or others.

There are thousands if not millions of artists using social media to promote, share and sell their work. Some are successful, many unfortunately are not. The successful artists use many techniques and strategies but I assure you that reading and research is among the list of reasons why they are making a living from their work.

I have compiled this list of 5 Must-Have Social Media Marketing Books for Artists just for you!

Read and Enjoy 🙂

#ArtsyTuesday: Research Finds the Obvious – Most Artists Who Make A Living Are White

Duh! and No shit! were the first thoughts that came to mind when I saw this article heading. This really isn’t shocking or surprising. The research revealed interesting numbers, I suppose, but it really just makes me more depressed.

WhiteArtists

A study compiled by data gurus BFAMFAPhD reaffirms what many, many, many critics have postulated — American artists are facing a diversity problem. As The Washington Post reported, BFAMFAPhD’s research reveals that most artists making a living from their work are white. And by most, we mean 77.6%.

The Diversity Problem

The study, titled “Artists Report Back,” analyzed data for over 1.4 million working artists* (as well as a group of 2 million art school graduates) across the United States using the Census Bureau’s 2012 American Community Survey (ACS). The results show that nearly four out of five working artists are white. That leaves 7.5% of working artists identifying as black, 3.9% as Asian and 8.3% Hispanic.

The statistics for art school graduates are a bit bleaker. A solid 80.8% of this population is white, while 4.4% is black, 7.0% is Asian and 5.7% is Hispanic. Of art school graduates who make a living from their work, 83% are white. BFAMFAPhD compares these findings to the U.S. population at large, which is 63.2% white, 12.3% black, 5% Asian and 16.6% Hispanic.

#WriterWednesday: Productivity Tips for Writers

Aspiring authors have asked me how I found the time to write my book. The easy and short answer is you have to make time.

Getting your book done and published has to become your #1 priority and you have to be willing to make sacrifices.

At the time I was working a day job as well as doing my weekly radio show on Blog Talk Radio. I decided to let the radio show go to focus on writing my book.

In total I would say it took me two years to write and publish my first book, Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down.

Another method I used to get my book written is quite controversial and many would frown upon it, but hey, it worked for me!

Find out what my main method was via Productivity Tips for Writers at My Ebook Journey.
