::: THE BAO HOUSE TO PUBLISH
::: LOVERGIRL: 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION
“There isn’t any other book out there like this one!” — Helen Gurley Brown,
editor of COSMOPOLITAN and author of SEX AND THE SINGLE GIRL, upon reading LOVERGIRL for the very first time.
I’m so excited about this and hope you’ll be too. My fact-based erotic novel LOVERGIRL is being re-released, in a very special tenth-anniversary edition. Don’t know about LOVERGIRL? There’s a whole blog dedicated to it. See?
TO READ THE BLOG CLICK HERE.
This is happening in partnership with THE BAO HOUSE (more on that later) and exclusive (at least for now) to AMAZON, which is currently offering both kindle and paperback editions.
TO PURCHASE CLICK HERE.
For those of you who have already read LOVERGIRL, and also to those of you who choose to buy it today, thank you. If you like what you read, why not reveal a little bit of yourself and post a review? They really help a (lover)girl out–and it’s so much fun to find out what you think.
::: A VERY SPECIAL (AND VERY LIMITED)
::: LOVERGIRL OPPORTUNITY–JUST FOR YOU
Want your LOVERGIRL to come at a discount price? My friends at AMAZON and I have come up with a little something special, just for you:
So there’s really no reason not to buy (and enjoy). Then, starting next week, if you buy the print edition, you can get the kindle for only $0.99!
::: THE PLASTIQUE ALBUM
::: NOW AVAILABLE VIA ITUNES AND AMAZON
LOVERGIRL isn’t my only re-release from the Berlin years. I’m thrilled to let you know that my first (though probably not last) album PLASTIQUE, recorded in Germany and capturing my electrocabaret act in more abstract, dance-floor-friendly form, has been re-released as well. Here’s what the brilliantly talented musician Jude Rawlins has to say about it:
“Eight years ago, I thought PLASTIQUE was a masterpiece. Today I still think so, but my reasons keep evolving with every listen. A remarkable debut, and whilst I hope she has another album in her someday, if this is to remain her one defiant musical statement, it still has a long life ahead of it. Dahlia may be the missing musical link between Peaches and Laurie Anderson, and not even Madonna thought of doing that yet.”

Your reviews, as always, are more than welcome, especially when considering what my next single should sound like!
::: MY 1ST LIVE PERFORMANCE IN FIVE YEARS–AND IT’S IN LA!

My performance happens on Thursday, the 12th of September, at 9:00PM.
Admission is free.
The Salon On Main @ 403 South Main Street, LA.
Please come prepared for sensuality–and surprises!
::: ON THE COVER (AND IN THE
::: MIDDLE) OF THE TATT REPORT
There’s a new magazine. It’s called THE TATT REPORT, it’s published by THE ACCESSORY THINK TANK (a New York City consulting firm), and it’s a business-to-business type of thing.
So why am I on the cover (as photographed by the divine DAISY RAST), and why did they run an essay inspired by my forthcoming book, SOME KIND OF MONSTER: CINDY SHERMAN’S OFFICE KILLER?
Here’s the scoop: In addition to promoting themselves and providing industry analysis, they’ve made this kind-of-crazy choice to double as a cultural-studies journal, touching upon themes and memes in fashion, jewellery, accessories, and all things glamourous.
Or at least that’s what my friends, the creative and editorial directors of this publication, told me. It sounded terrific, so when they asked me to contribute, of course I said YES!
Anyway, the first issue is available for free download. Take a look:

::: MODERATING SEX PANELS,
::: BUILDING THE BAO HOUSE, ETC!
Did I tell you? My friends, the ones I mentioned above, are partners in a creative-development studio called THE BAO HOUSE. With offices in Toronto and New York City, they design visuals and narratives for a variety of brands, mostly luxury goods and (believe it or not) other agencies. They branded THE ACCESSORY THINK TANK, for example.
My TATT REPORT experience was so fantastic–and so liberating–that I insisted they launch their own imprint in collaboration with my friends at AMAZON. They did it, then suggested I publish a trilogy of erotic novels with them. LOVERGIRL is the first. Next they’ll be releasing my books BREATHE WITH ME (a choose-your-own adventure concept) and QUEEN OF HEARTS (which involves castles, magicians, illusions of many different kinds galore).
To kick off all of this literary lap-dancing, I’ll be moderating a panel at THE WEST HOLLYWOOD BOOK FAIR, featuring brilliant talents such as APRIL FLORES, CARLOS BATTS, ORIANA SMALL, and LESLIE ZEMECKIS.
Please come by for some stimulating conversation!
My panel happens on Sunday, the 29th of September, at 5:00PM. Admission is free and directions and parking information can be found on their website.
That’s more than enough for now. Until I write again, thanks so much for spending these past few moments with me. If you’d like to keep in touch, my site and social URLs follow. Kisses (of whichever kind you like the most)…
