Five Fun Things That Happened While Writing Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down
1. I had a ball during the photo shoot for the cover and back images of my book. I worked with a professional make up artist, stylist, and of course a wonderful photographer. During the shoot I began to really feel “official”.

2.  During the editing process I found some of my writing to be very boring, so I had a good time spicing up the storyline and coming up with things that would shock and entertain readers.

3. I used Twitter to give exclusive snippets of my book before it was complete to create hype and interest in the final product. It worked! People wanted more!

4. I shared some very rough drafts of the stories from my book with a couple of fellow authors as well as HIV activist, Hydeia Broadbent. Their feedback helped me to improve the stories and gave me the extra push I needed to complete the publishing process. Their reviews also helped to validate my work.

5. I stopped recording my weekly live internet radio show, Ask Dangerous Lee Live, on the Blog Talk Radio network to solely focus on my writing and I do not regret it, though I am constantly asked if and when I will be returning to radio.

Read the Excerpt

from "Self Love and Pain"

I am in love with myself. That’s right; I turn my damn self on. As I stand here in my black lace bra and panties I am turned on by my full-figured image. I love my body. I’ve had this love affair before, but now it’s permanent.

Unfortunately, my boyfriend died of AIDS. I am HIV negative.
We always had safe sex. I knew he had AIDS, and I also knew how to
protect myself. Winston was honest with me from the very beginning
and I made the decision aft er dating and getting to know him for three
months that I wanted to make love to him until the day AIDS took
his life.

Doesn’t sound romantic? That’s because you’re the type that
believes in fairy tales. Has a knight in shining armor ever tried to get
your phone number? Hell no! Real knights are usually in rusted armor
that require several cans of oil.

When I met Winston he appeared healthy as a race horse. Before
he got himself cleaned up and drug free he was an intravenous drug
user who shared needles with other IV drug users. By the time I met
him he was a very successful business man looking to make each
moment count.
