Welcome back to AuthorHouse Author’s Digest and our first update of 2018! We’re going to kick off the year with a post from relationship columnist, racehorse trainer, beauty queen, host, and self-published author Victoria M. Howard.
Last year, Victoria talked with us about her successful book Kentucky Horse Park: Paradise Found, and this time she’ll tell us about her latest novel, Dancing for Dollars. It’s already collecting rave reviews, and there’s even talk of a film adaptation! As always, we’re happy that she could take time from her writing to chat with Author’s Digest and our readers.
Dancing for Dollars by Victoria M Howard
Dancing for Dollars is a raucous, intoxicating novel about four young women who come from different parts of the world. Fate leads them to South Florida where they get hired to “dance for dollars” in a high-end gentlemen’s club called 7th Heaven.
After several years dancing, Francesca is discovered and, after posing for Playboy, becomes Hollywood’s new sex siren. Mika moves to Washington D.C. and opens a brothel of gorgeous women who entertain politicians, as well as the mega-rich and famous. Bella falls in love with America’s top model and moves to New York to open a modeling agency, and Abigail opens a South Beach nightclub where her deadly secret follows her.
Q: Is this book a true story?
A: No. It is strictly fiction–although several parts may appear to be real.
Q: How did you get the idea to write this?
A: Several years ago, a friend of mine who owned a S. Florida gentlemen’s club allowed me to interview several employees after I went there for dinner and was amazed at the interaction between the beautiful young dancers and the customers.
Q: Were you ever a stripper?
A: No. In my younger days I was Miss Pittsburgh-A-Go-Go, and was a dancer on a weekly television show (much like American Bandstand).
Q: This book is a provocative, unorthodox novel that is being compared to Fifty Shades of Grey. Do you agree?
A: It definitely is different, and I can see why it is being compared to Fifty Shades.
Victoria will also be featured on LA Talk Radio on January 16!
