Rumor ‘round the blogging community is that Belle de Jour, who I link to in my Weblogs and Friends section over there on the right, has signed a very lucrative book contract. Her weblog—that of a high class London call girl—is certainly entertaining and well-written. The question of whether she’s really a call girl or just a writer with an active imagination has come up, but what does it matter? Sex sells.
Apparently the answer to the question, “Who do I have to sleep with to get a book deal?” is quite a few lonely London businessmen. Good for her.
The next question is, how do you explain the book deal to all your friends and family who don’t know what you do for a living?
