I'm on Cult of Gracie Tonight!

I'm getting all fluttery just thinking about it. If you have a few minutes tonight at 7 pm PST, stop by to listen, ask a question and hopefully feel some fluttery excitement right along with me! I'll give the tell-all report tomorrow....

I'm planning on being there! Who wants to join me in the chat room? (It's like being in the studio audience for a TV show!)

EllaRegina said...

Excellent presentation, as always!!!

Thank you!

Donna said...

Thank you, EllaRegina and Jeremy for you palpable and public support! It was a fun interview and I was thrilled Gracie really seemed to like the book!

Kirsten Monroe said...

Oh my goodness Donna -- you are amazing. I am so smitten. Over the top, head over heels.

Thanks for the hot tip Jeremy -- I'm so happy I had the opportunity to be part of the studio audience.

Love the chat feature -- that is so much fun!

I really enjoyed listening to this interview. I'm sorry I didn't get to do it while it was live, but I'm so glad I got the chance to hear it anyway. The way Gracie talked about Amorous Woman and the questions she asked really made me remember rather intimately how much I loved the novel...I really remembered as I listened to your conversation some of the distinct ways that it moved me.

And of course I loved a number of the things you said. I loved the brief discussion about the "coming" and "going" syntactical difference between America and Japan in referencing orgasm (thanks for the prompt, ER!), and at the very end, I loved your point about how your erotic writing not being "forbidden" from your sons makes it less fixating/compelling to them...I feel appreciative of that kind of recognizance and feel we would do well to consider/recognize it in many interactions in this culture, especially dealing with children and especially dealing with sex as well (and possibly, as with the very subject you were talking about, with the conjunction of the two).

I much enjoyed Jeremy's question too, as well as your answer to it. :)

So I guess what I'm saying is I overall found it a beautiful interview, and thanks as usual for sharing!

Jeremy Edwards said...

Captivating, compelling, and enlightening as always, DGS!

And all night long, I had lovely dreams about eager women with itchy eyebrows. ; )

Donna said...

Hey KM, perhaps now is the time to confess my red-hot fantasy about you--I dream you've invited me over for dinner for your wonderful food, wine and conversation. In other words, the feeling is mutual :-)

And thank you, Emerald, for listening and for your shimmering words of support. I am trying to be a different kind of parent around sexual issues than my parents were (although they weren't the worst from stories I've heard). That's definitely changing the world one small step at time!

Kirsten Monroe said...

Oh my gosh, a Donna fantasy involving me? My life is complete!!!! So your confession gave me this idea -- perhaps I could hire the best chefs in Japan to help me prepare something amazing -- and like the restaurants that serve the food on a sexy woman (Nyotaimori - Body Sushi) -- how would you like a special meal served on Jeremy? Could you hold very still Jeremy --while we feast?

Donna said...

Well, I love the part about Jeremy's naked form as the table (another confession--isn't the photo on his web site HOT?). But I'd really rather taste some of your gourmet cooking, KM. I'm sure you could do a fabulous fusion translation of the "traditional" Japanese kaiseki on the very inspiring Jeremy canvas.

Okay, when is this going to happen? I'm packing up my Girl Scout mess kit now!

Kirsten Monroe said...

For you, Donna, anything. Anything at all! I am drafting the Jeremy canvas fusion menu now!

Donna said...

My mouth is watering already!

Jeremy Edwards said...

[Blushing : )]

Wow, this is exciting! I mean, usually I just contribute a bottle of wine.

Speaking of which ... white underwear or red for this meal?

Donna said...

Underwear? I don't think you have the picture quite right ;-)

Kirsten Monroe said...

Underwear! Ha! Some red cabbage panties maybe :)

Donna said...

YES! Red cabbage is perfect. You're a natural, KM. I can see this might have potential as a depression-era entertainment....

Jeremy Edwards said...

Cool—I always wanted to be part of the WPA!
