Headlines this week as word leaks about the 25th Bond film: a female 007! And she’s black! Cue fan boys screaming. Awesome for Lashana Lynch! But the truth is she’s just taking James Bond’s job, not Daniel Craig’s role (and alas, no Idris Elba? Sigh). But who reads beyond the headlines? And does it matter if you do?
Besides, there’s already a great ‘female James Bond’ and she’s Anglo-Spanish, chica. Her name is CHASTITY FLAME :
“Step aside, 007, and make room for Chastity Flame. Ms. Flame outwits, out-spies and definitely out-sexes James Bond in this rollicking, witty and exceptionally well-written erotic spy thriller. If you’re a fan of British comedy, look for the in-jokes. If you’re not, there’s more than enough humor, action and hot sex to satisfy any lover of romantic suspense!” ~ Dana Fredsti, author of Plague Town and Plague Nation
And her adventures are half off at Smashwords this month along with all my Tirgearr titles.
Oh wait, wasn’t there another one too…? Heh: love that Modesty Blaise!
