I already get a bit of traffic from people seating for DIY vibrators or true sex stories but I am so looking forward to claiming a few new key word search terms when my book The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine hits the shelves.
Here. I'll add some in for you.
ORAC (The acronym for Reich's Orgone Energy Accumulator and also the computer from Blakes 7. Coincidence? I think not)
Blue glowing vagina.
Eye in the arse.
So many many more. If you find this intriguing, here is a link to a preview to my book which will be released on April 22nd.

So my book The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine will be published on the 22nd April.
I have a book launch in Qld on the 30th April at Avid Reader (in conversation with John Birmingham)
Sydney: Book launch May 4th at Better Read than Dead with Benjamin Law
Qld: May 7th at Riverbend Bookshop in conversation with Ashley Hay about reading and writing erotic literature
Melbourne: May 14th at Readings Carlton with Christos Tsiolkas
Tonight I will be doing a pre-record with Radio National's Paul Barclay for Big Ideas talking about Reading Pornography in a post 50 Shades of Grey world and on April 9th I will be on Richard Fidler's Conversation Hour talking about pornography and my work and also poetry.
The Adventures of Holly White and the Incredible Sex Machine is a big crazy sex romp and I had to read an awful lot of porn to be able to write it.
Holly White finds her sexual power through reading the erotic classics. This is something that she and I share. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who have boldly gone before me, leaving a trail of crumbs for me to feast on as I picked my way out of the woods and towards to the completion of this book. The books I devoured in order to produce this book include the ones referenced within. These are…
