She’s written a memoir. She’s starred in an adult film. And now, Farrah Abraham is combining both experiences to write a trilogy of naughty novels, called Celebrity Sex Tape, which is “loosely based” on her own experience in the spotlight and the fall-out that followed her own scandalous tape.
The Teen Mom star promises Book One: In The Making, which is the first book of the series being published by Ellora’s Cave, “reveals the truth” about being a young celebrity.
Budding celebrity Fallon Opal is at the center of the rumor mill as news she has a sex tape surfaces.
Devoted fans become invested in the scandal as Fallon struggles with the public’s perception and expectations of her and her own internal alienation as “she aches for a human touch.”
According to the 22-year-old reality star, writing the series has been “like therapy.”
“Fallon’s story follows what I’ve gone through recently, much of it witnessed and misunderstood by the public,” she said. “Book One is an entertaining and sexually charged novel, but it’s also an inside look at the underside of being a reality TV star that everyone else can relate to.”
This isn’t Farrah’s first adventure into the literary world.
In 2012, she published My Teenage Dream Ended, which told of the trials and tribulations of raising her daughter, Sophia, beyond what was shown on MTV.
While the novels of the Celebrity Sex Tape are fiction, Ellora Cave’s CEO Patty Marks stressed how this new series will focus on the aftermath of her sex tape, Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, which took place after My Teenage Dream Ended.
“While the series is fiction, the books are based on Farrah’s true feelings about what she went through,” Ms. Marks said.
“I think readers will be surprised to find out who Farrah really is and what a great character she has developed with Fallon Opal.
"I can see why her first book was a bestseller; it’s great to have another independent woman like Farrah in our publishing house celebrating her sexuality.”
Book One: In The Making is due out in July, and is currently available for preorder.
