gpa the poeticunsub, author of The Book of 24 Orgasms
(Exact Change Press)
The Book of 24 Orgasms is about sensuality in erotica. As illustrated in the poems, The Book of 24 Orgasms lends to the ideal that an orgasms, or in this case orgasms, begin with the stimulation of the mind.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write The Book of 24 Orgasms?
GPA the PoeticUnsub: The inspiration for The Book of 24 Orgasms came from listening to Trey Songz’s “Scratchin Me Up”, drinking rum and coke chased by a Heineken. Actually, I wanted to try writing erotica on a dare, and these poems came to me.
JP: What sets The Book of 24 Orgasms apart from other books in the same genre?
GPA: The Book of 24 Orgasms is different from other books of erotic poetry because there aren’t any expletives, offensive, or vulgar language used to describe sexual acts or instruments. But the meaning still comes across clear. It isn’t necessary to say, “Imma stick it in you. You gonna suck it, etc…” And I don’t.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to The Book of 24 Orgasms getting out to the public?
GPA: A few of the keys to my success in getting my book out to the public are letting people know it the book is coming, putting together focus groups to test the poems and gauge responses, performing excerpts from the book, and relentless promotion on and off-line.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish The Book of 24 Orgasms?
GPA: My writing process is fairly simple. I have a theme, come up with an appropriate title, and write the poems under those auspices. It took a little over two months to write, complete, and edit The Book of 24 Orgasms.
JP: What’s next for GPA the PoeticUnsub?
GPA: I am preparing for Chocolate Rose 3 and the November 4th release of The Mind of an Unsub. Also, I am currently performing in various showcases with P.O.E.T. (People of Extraordinary Talent) all summer.
