So has anyone seen it in the shops?

I’m keen to find out when it’s on the shelves! I’m not going to go out and look for it so I’m waiting for a friend to say they’ve spotted it before I go in a shop in disguise to see it and take a moment to feel proud. I know friends that have pre-ordered it on Amazon have their copies. One escort friend said she couldn’t put it down and ended up reading the lot in two days. She really enjoyed it so I hope that others will too and that I’ll get more positive feedback for all my hard work.

It’s taken me years to write and I do feel a real sense of achievement. Although it’s a shame that it’s not the sort of book that my parents or Grandparents can read. My mum and dad still want their copy though 🙂

News of the World

What can I say? Lol 🙂

When NOTW came forward although it wasn’t my first choice, I did think it would be good advertising for the book.

Of course I knew what they would do – sensationalise my story and make it sound as shocking as possible and my job as sleazy as possible.

It wasn’t nice to read but it could have been worse. They took one sentence from one part of my book and put it next to another sentence to create a very different meaning. They painted my life as an escort as something that I was ashamed of, which is totally untrue, and they used the worst photos they could find!

The only interview I actually had with them was the one on their website that was filmed. The rest of the article they made up, loosly based on what was in the book.

My friends seemed to love the article saying that if they didn’t know me they would want to buy the book, and that’s why I did it – to promote my book.

One friend rightly pointed out that most authors would kill for that sort of publicity and another said a double middle page spread in any sort of national newspaper would be worth thousands of pounds.

The Girlfriend Experience – Rebecca Dakin

Welcome to my new blog!

I thought I’d share my journey with you all as I make the transition back from Bea to Beki. I’ve been escorting for 9 years and I started writing my book around 4 years ago. I was prompted to start writing after reading Belle De Jour. I wanted to educate people about the infamous ‘girlfriend experience’ and challenge peoples views on escorting.

I’m going to blog how I integrate back into ‘normal life’ after a whirlwind exciting 9 years of escorting.

What am I going to do now? … Well you’ll have to watch this space 🙂
