There’s another reason to thank our lucky stars that Farrah Abraham’s erotic novel is thisclose to publication: Farrah almost didn’t complete the book because she was so turned on by her writing.
“There’s a lot of heavy story work in the writing, but then it’s very hot and sexual when you’re writing it,” Farrah told Celebuzz this week of Celebrity Sex Tape: In The Making. “In all honesty, it has been very hard for me to write the sexual scenes because it turns your mind on and it’s very hard to finish.”
The New York Times bestselling author eventually worked her way through the book, which she promises will have “better sex scenes and also a more compelling story” than any of E.L. James’ work. And Farrah didn’t even have to do any research research!
“The only research I really do — if we’re talking about research on the computer — I’m like, ‘Am I using the right sexual word?’ So people don’t get confused,” Farrah said, enlightening us all to a new Google function. “I mean, there’s equally — among my friends and people I’ve run into and me — I think we’ve had enough sexual experiences for a lifetime so we’re sharing some of them.”
Farrah’s friends (Farrah-iends?) also weighed in on character names.
“The names just came to my mind and I was pretty much set on all the names,” Farrah explained, revealing only the protagonist’s name, Fallon Opal. “So for me to have feedback from my friends and they said ‘we really like those names and they’re interesting,’ I kept them as they were.”
Although the book isn’t due out until July, Farrah’s already making plans for a movie version.
“If it were turned into a movie, which I think would also be awesome in its own sense, I just know I would have Jessica Alba play Fallon Opal,” Farrah said. “I think she’s very relatable to myself and Fallon Opal, and I think she’s had a very good career and I would trust her playing that part.”
She was also kind enough to give Celebuzz a few more details on what readers can expect — further baiting us for this sure-to-be Great American Novel.
“It’s very important for me to have a very awesome and authentic storyline because that’s me as a writer,” said the My Teenage Dream Ended and Passy Perfume author. “If I’m having all the thoughts and fantasies and also taking true life experiences and I’m twisting that all together.”
