Lucky by Jackie Collins

Bodice Tipplers

Are... are you actually ready for this?  (We were not.) Get ready for some Jackie Collins all up in your face-parts!  Lucky Santangelo is a boss businesslady who Has Sex.  A whole lot happens in this book - everybody gets married six times, at least one hotel is opened, dirty deeds are done on yachts....  I honestly do not know how I could possibly describe the plot.  I can tell you that if you are sensitive to literally any content whatsoever you should not read this book because it has it all.  Child brides!  Rape!  Child rape!  Gratuitous dead babies!  Everybody has sex with everybody else's dad!  Racism!  Fat shaming! The idle rich!  One of these people has so much cocaine she has to have a special cocaine panic room in her house to keep her cocaine in!  So if any of that sounds like something you definitely do not want to hear about, by all means do not listen to this.  If all of that sounds like something you absolutely need to hear about.... by all means, join us.

Here she talks about Jackie Collins as the patron saint of Authors Who Like Nice Things, and we talk about Jackie the product versus Jackie the person. We also discuss female authors and self awareness, Lucky Santangelo as a James Bond for women, satire, sex, parenting and much more. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Standing Brightly In The Memory of Mum Jackie Collins

You Should Write A Book About That™

When Rory Green was eight, she realized her mother author Jackie Collins was famous.  On a book tour in Australia, she experienced the paparazzi and her mother’s nightly appearances on talk shows.  Raised to believe she could do anything, and knowing she too was a writer, Rory struggled with the fear of falling short in her own literary career under the shadow of such a legend.  When she developed breast cancer, at the same time as her mom was dying of breast cancer, and her grandmother had died of breast cancer, she felt there was a long held trauma she would fight… and she did.  Today she opens candidly about her relationship with Jackie, and her own writing career as a guide and coach.   If you think YOU should write a book, head on over to A Story Inside Books, and sign up for our newsletter to learn how we help our clients write books that can achieve best seller status. www.astoryinside.com Connect with Rory: http://www.writetobeyou.com
