Bookish Burlesque

Working on the Field of Dreams principle, I've been blogging about strippers, sleaze paperbacks--and other scantily clad themes--every single chance I get.

And what do you know, it worked! I sold pieces of burlesque historical material to two fine performers who are upholding the tradition and keeping the tassles spinning.

...and they both have book-related acts!

First Ms. Ginny Fizz and her librarian tease to the tune of Elvis' "A Little Less Conversation"

Next Scarlett Letter and her anything but puritanical bump 'n grind fan dance.

Also see The Ministry of Burlesque Youtube page for a ton of burlesque performance and how-to videos.
