you're reading...

The Naked Truth

Well into book, should finish by March. Yes, I know I promised February, but that won’t happen. Even finishing by March involves a hell of a lot of all-nighters; I am old now and I write slowly. What to do.
Thanks everyone who’s written in urging me to get on with it; you are not, repeat not, helping. Also, I must know this. Why is nearly everyone writing in campaigning for a sex scene? Why are surprising numbers of strapping, confirmed heterosexual males demanding Kirin-nudity? Have you not had enough bad sex writing from Indians?
No? Ok. Remember. You asked for it. I warned you.
Sigh. Clearly some of you are the people who have kept ‘Chennai auntie massage’ among the top three Google leads to this blog over the last two years.

Update: More mails, mostly saying ‘Nooooooo!’, which I have read while grinning evilly. This whole post, I hope you know, is essentially meaningless; if I had listened to people who told me what to write, I wouldnt have written the books I did. Of course, I might have written better books, but thats not the point.

  3. That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. People should let different streams of books be different. No need to make an errotica out of a sci fi or fantasy book.

  7. kirin nudity sounds AWESOME!
    lol. funniest masculine description by male author in recent times i remember – that of the hero (i forget his name) in Last Song of Dusk.

    “As he ran the white cloth around the bend of his muscled calves, the limp leg hair rose again. Then he daubed the delicious dimples of his buttocks, the incline of his back, the coltish nape of his neck, and with every movement over his lovely form, bath water found itself slowly exiled to the lobes of his ears. The mirror revealed a fine specimen: a tall, muscular specimen with broad shoulders and a gallant puff of chest, a jaggery-brown skin, and a member between his legs that was lonely and strong willed and uttery gorgeous inside its own confusion. (pg 10)”

  9. Chennai Aunti massage.
    Thats what the crowd is looking for.
    GIve it to them, Samit.
    Your book will skyrocket the “Best Porno Book” ratings, probably even beat “Hyderabad Auntie massage”.

  12. Samit may not be the bestest (OK, OK … YET!), but he does NOT merit comparisons with (blech) Siddharth (puke) Dhanwant (yerrkkk) Shanghvi.

  13. hey, this blog is aiming to be a other-writer-bashing free zone. dont ask me why, possibly im getting mellow. so please restrict your shining examples/horrendous extracts to people who’ve either won or been shortlisted for the Bad Sex Award. We are picky.

  14. Whatever it is that you do, I hope I can read the new book as many times as I read the first two.


    PS: Would help if you finished it fast.
