Now, as any writer knows it is incredibly difficult to get published unless you are a highly respected person in a particular field (I am not), have a shit load of money (I don't) or are a celebrity with a sex tape (still waiting for Colin Farrell or Johnny Depp to call me back). No, I fall in none of the aforementioned categories.
Or so I thought...
But tonight, after receiving an email from my publisher I have discovered something I never knew about myself: I'm a porn star. That's right, a bend your legs behind your head, threesome havin', into guys with cheesey mustaches and maybe some girls too, pound me hard porn star.
|Shay Lynn (Porn Star)- Not me|
OK, not really, but if you google me, that's what you will find: Shay LynnXXX. I even have a video on youtube and a Twitter following. And apparently, for those that are curious, I am not only "bad" but I am also "Nationwide." I am not even certain what that means. Is that how my porno starts? Am I a good little insurance agent by day and a bad, S&M dominatrix by night? Instead of the normal porn music, Bow chicka bow wow do I get down and dirty to the Nationwide insurance theme?
I know what you are thinking...I know a lot about porn. Well, I should...I'm in the industry.
I don't know which accomplishment to be more proud of: My book publishing or my successful career in the pornographic industry.
|Me - Writer NOT Porn Star|
(& about as Porno as I get!)
So, after receiving this email about my pen name-sorry to all of you that thought Shay Lynn was my real name. I still love you, just not enough to let you know my true identity. Kind of like a super-hero, only less glamorous. Anyway, so after receiving this email message from my publisher, I did what any good writer would do. I sent her a message back that said:
Do you think it will help us sell more books?
