Posts Tagged ‘The Essential Maggie McNeill’

Though it took longer than usual, my brain has now downshifted into autumn mode and I’m enjoying the lovely cool, dark, rainy Seattle weather. I’ve done two duos with Lorelei in the past week and we have another set up; I published a new story, have some friends coming over for my birthday tomorrow, and in a few days Daylight Mismanagement Time will be over and I won’t have to endure the sun while I’m eating dinner.  Paul Johnson is in the final stages of editing The War on Whores, and we’ll be shooting a cover image pretty soon; I think I have the energy to finally get The Essential Maggie McNeill out; and I’ll be announcing another big project pretty soon.  The “authorities” want sex workers to shut up and play the part of damsels in distress for their melodramatic morality play, starring cops and politicians as the heroes; instead, I’m going to proclaim the truth even more loudly, and pretty soon I’ll be asking for the help of all my readers to do it.

A couple of my readers have correctly observed that it’s been a while since I posted a nude selfie, so here’s one from August 30th.  I apologize for the delay in getting out The Essential Maggie McNeill; I ran out of steam during the Dog Days (as so often happens), and I’m not quite back up to snuff yet (though I’m getting there).  I’ve also had a lot of paying work lately, and obviously that has to take priority.  On top of that, I’ve been spending more time with a generous gentleman who has decided to move from regular client to patron, and I had the rare treat of two visits from Ghost Rider in a single month!  He chastised me a bit because I haven’t flown lately, and I assured him I’d do so pretty soon; right now I’ll definitely be in Los Angeles in March and Chicago in May, and I’m thinking about New York in early November.  So if you’re in any of those places, or you’d like to book me for an overnight anywhere in the country (a shorter date than that might possibly do if you’re west of the Rockies), please do let me know!  Paul Johnson tells me my documentary, The War on Whores, is almost done; pretty soon I’ll be looking for help in booking screenings for it, so if you think you can help arrange such a screening I’ll soon be letting you know how you can do that.  I think that’s all I have to say for now, but hey, if I’m wrong it’ll just have to wait for next week.

A week ago today, Square Peg was inspired by my column about the new developments at Sunset to send one of the power tools Grace asked me to put on my Amazon wishlist!  This is a huge help to me; I need to provide any tool which Grace and Chekhov need to work on the house, buildings, yard, vehicles, etc, which means every tool I don’t need to buy myself is deeply appreciated!  If you want to join the generous patron club, there are several more tools on the list, and if you prefer more fun or sexy things, those are there too.  But no matter what you send (cash is nice too, and in addition to Paypal donations to maggiemcneill@earthlink.net, I now accept Square Cash at $MaggieMcNeill), you get onto my patron list, and I’m working out how to give everyone on there a special coupon code for discounts on my Kindle books.  Speaking of that, keep your eyes open for news about The Essential Maggie McNeill; volume I is done and should be available in the next week or two, and then I’ll be starting on volume II right away (for probable release in September).  The long summer days really increase my anxiety, but at least I’ve figured out a few ways of putting that nervous energy to good use!

Last week was another lovely one, full of gifts and good clients!  Robin Aguilar sent me a snakeskin-print bodysuit which I’ll be modelling for y’all when it gets a bit cooler; I also got a compact music system for my incall from Siggi Bjarnason; and a new Chromebook (to replace my trusty but now-failing one) from J.A. Sutherland!  I suspect all these generous gents were inspired by either my anniversary, or Friday the 13th, or both; if you missed those occasions last week but would like to send a gift or donation, I don’t mind when things come in a bit late.  Really I don’t.  Anyhow, I was also on Tina Dupuy‘s show last week, and by the time you read this I should have half of the essays for The Essential Maggie McNeill edited, which means it’s on course to be available in August.  All that and an impromptu selfie, too!  I thought my hair was a bit too messy here, but everybody seemed to like it on Twitter.  And I guess a picture where I look kinda like I just got out of bed (actually, the shower) can’t help but be sexy.

I plan to keep this blog/creatrix relationship going for as long as my brain and fingers allow me to do so.  –  “Seventh Anniversary

Eight years now.  Damn.  There are quite a few older blogs, but I daresay not many bigger ones; despite travels, travails and troubles, I’ve somehow managed to produce a post every single day since July 10th, 2010.  That’s almost 3000 of them now, and that isn’t even counting the books, essays for other publications, audio and video interviews, and speeches I’ve given in public (not to mention the innumerable unrecorded rants to which I’ve subjected my admiring clients and long-suffering friends, the latter not always while entirely sober).  I’ve produced so much material, in fact, that I’m currently in the process of collecting it into “best of” volumes, which will be available both in paper and Kindle format; the first of them, The Essential Maggie McNeill, Volume I, should be available within a month.  Each one will consist of 52 essays, roughly 1.7% of my total output to date.  I’d like to have as many of them done as possible by the time I need to start gallivanting about the country promoting my forthcoming documentary, The War on Whores.  I’m still deeply sad and bone-tired, but the fury of my deeply-offended sense of justice is driving me on (with the assistance of friends, pharmaceuticals and of course lovely, lovely money), so I plan to keep this up until I croak.  And as those of you who’ve been paying attention for the past eight years know, I can always be counted on to persevere as long as it is humanly possible to do so, and then just a bit longer.

Last week was quite a lovely one; Angela Keaton came to visit, and we always have a great time together (including the party on Saturday night and dinner & a show with two other ladies, courtesy of a generous gentleman, on Sunday).  She didn’t leave until yesterday morning, then yesterday evening I had a date with one of my favorite clients and today I’m driving out to Sunset with Jae for the holiday.  I also got half of The Essential Maggie McNeill, Volume One formatted; after it’s all done I’ll have to do some editing of the essays so they can stand alone in book form, and I’d like to have it ready for sale by the end of the month.  Last week also saw the release of a podcast I recorded in London with Miranda Kane and Bibi Lynch while I was there with Brooke Magnanti in May; they also recorded one with Brooke the same day, and her episode premiered last week.  But I guess the biggest news of the week was the release of the trailer for my upcoming documentary; I’ll give you more on that as I get it!
