‘Bigfoot erotica’ are two words I never thought to put together in a sentence, and yet here we are.
A GOP candidate, and winner of the latest congressional race in Virginia, has been labelled a “Bigfoot erotica devotee”. Denver Riggleman won against Democrat Leslie Cockburn in the 5th District’s race on 6th Nov ’18. Cockburn, former investigative journalist and “60 Minutes” producer, attempted to derail their opponent by alleging he was unfit for office after his odd erotica was leaked online.
This claim came after Cockburn also accused their opponent of consorting with a white supremacist- however, this news came as less of a shock than the Bigfoot erotica.
Despite Cockburn’s accusation, the GOP candidate insisted the book, The Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him, was written as a joke between friends.
Despite being somewhat of a Bigfoot expert, Riggleman insisted that Cockburn’s accusation that he enjoys Bigfoot erotica “absurd”.
Riggleman was promoting a self-published book, Mating Habits of Bigfoot right up until he began his congressional race, and in 2006, he released Bigfoot Exterminators Inc.: The Partially Cautionary, Mostly True Tale of Monster Hunt as co-author. He certainly seems like the type of guy who loves a bit of the hairy man-beast. And who are we to judge?
The prize will be awarded to the work that receives praise not just from the judging panel and industry experts but also from readers too. The shortlist, to come later this year, will be compiled on the basis of a number of factors including sales, reader reviews and pages read in Kindle Unlimited.
The triple-levelled membership rates offer a choice for every budget- from $25 (includes the chosen book, gifts, and discussion materials), $10 (includes discussion materials), and $0 (which includes the ability to join in the discussion via an invite to their Discord chat). Each book is read and discussed for six weeks before moving on to the next. The book club’s first shared read was Jacqueline Woodson’s If You Come Softly.
The new book club will centre on a different theme each month, but will keep up its feminist under-theme throughout the book club. The first Book Club theme will be magic, astrology and women of the zodiac and will take place on March 24th.
