Feel Good Twice!
Ultimate Burlesque is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and it looks to be a corker! Emily Dubberley, sexpert, writer, journalist, erotic adventurer and person who never sleeps, has created Burlesque Against Breast Cancer, a programme of fundraising events in the UK, culminating in a magnificent Burlesque Ball held in Brighton, just down the road from me.
Ultimate Burlesque, the tie-in anthology from Xcite Books, features a host of fabulous writers, including Jeremy Edwards, Nikki Magennis, Donna George Storey, Alison Tyler and yours truly. I’m thrilled to be part of this collection and it’s been wonderful to see how eager people have been to support BABC, offering time, services, sponsorship, stories, caviar, kinky stuff and goodness knows what else.
Earlier this year, Emily’s mum was diagnosed with, and treated successfully for, breast cancer. This is Emily’s way of giving something back. As she says, ‘I considered doing the Race for Life but realised I wanted to do something that would raise more money and decided to use my contacts rather than my (feeble) sporting abilities.’
So please put your hands in your pockets (ahem!) and support this wonderful cause by buying this wonderful book! Give and get off! Feel good twice!
And make Emily glad she decided not to dig out her running shoes.
