The difference between a brainstorm and a brain fart is the amount of wind produced, right? Put out the windsock and let’s see what we’ve got.
While watching The Simpsons this evening FOX showed the one where the young ladies are doing a live cam show in Flanders’ spare bedroom. Their Web site name, www.sexyslumberparty.com is taken, but there are several similar names available. So, I was thinking, what if there was a “slumber party” cam show where scantily clad young women were reading my books but they couldn’t stop hitting each other with pillows every few minutes?
Two of my favorite things, combined. Sex and horror. I’m not sure they’ve ever been used together before.
Then logic kicked in. Duh. I only have four books in print. Oh, and the girls might want to get paid for their efforts. So I could recruit a few other writers and we’d rotate books. Then we might need a place. I doubt Kim would let me donate our bedroom for a cam show playpen. In fact, I’m pretty sure of it.
So, we’d need to develop the site, hire the girls and rent a place. Oh, and buy some cameras. Advertise? Eh, the perverts have a way of finding these things. Or, um … so I’ve heard. Who’s in?
Of course, the biggest flaw is that I’m not likely to see any money from the increased sales since my publishers haven’t paid up and aren’t answering e-mail.
