ALBANY, GA—BearManor Media proudly announces the release of Golden Goddesses: 25 Legendary Women of Classic Erotic Cinema 1968-1985, by Jill C. Nelson.
Golden Goddesses vibrantly casts light upon twenty-five significant women involved in the erotic film industry during its Golden Era, when participation in adult productions was illegal. Profiling performers, directors, scriptwriters and costumers, Golden Goddesses is a palate of insights, intimacy, vulnerability and strength, as it immerses readers into the lives of these celebrated and audacious females.
Featuring the author’s own interviews with Marilyn Chambers, Seka, Kay Parker, Rhonda Jo Petty, Serena, Georgina Spelvin, Juliet Anderson, Candida Royalle, Sharon Mitchell, Gloria Leonard, Annie Sprinkle, Ann Perry, Jody Maxwell, Barbara Mills, Veronica Hart, Kelly Nichols, Ginger Lynn, Kitten Natividad, Amber Lynn, Laurie Holmes, Christy Canyon, Julia St. Vincent, Roberta Findlay, Nina Hartley and Raven Touchstone, Golden Goddesses also includes film highlights and more than 300 photos.
Born and raised in southern Ontario, Canada, during her childhood and teen years, Jill Nelson was inspired by her father, mother, and two older brothers in the fields of art, music, literature and travel. Nelson made her first splash in the adult industry with the 2008 release of the biography, co-authored with Jennifer Sugar, John Holmes: A Life Measured In Inches, which also contains a foreword by adult industry veteran William Margold. Of the work, which features interviews with some of the people who knew Holmes and alter-ego Johnny Wadd best, including Laurie Holmes, Bill Amerson, Bob Chinn, Paul Thomas, Ron Jeremy, Seka, Marilyn Chambers, Candida Royalle, Rhonda Jo Petty and Sharon Mitchell, Keith Valcourt of Hustler magazine wrote, "Whether or not, you were a fan of Mr. Wadd, you won't be able to put down this fascinating biography by Jennifer Sugar and Jill C. Nelson." It was also named as the March, 2009 Hustler Book of the Month.
Golden Goddesses is a softcover book consisting of 946 pages of text and photos, and is available through BearManor Media, as well as Amazon.com.
