Smash Notes summary for this episode

What inspired Jamie's dad to start writing erotica novels?

His dad heard, but not read, about the success of what he calls, “50 Colors of Grey.” So, he began writing his book and started self publishing. It went from travel guides to porn. His pen name is Rocky Flintstone.

Is Belinda Blumenthal or any of the characters based off of anyone?

Jamie states that no, his mom is not Belinda Blumenthal. The series is not autobiographical or based off of anyone. Rocky has included drawings in his book of the fantasies.

What is the first book of Belinda Blinked about?

Belinda is hired by Tony, her managing director. She makes some sales headway by bringing on a large European customer, and makes his initial en routes to the American market. There’s also a mysterious duchess that makes Belinda feel alive to her sexual fantasies.

What happens at Belinda’s job interview?

The managing director asks Belinda to remove her clothing articles, leaving her completely exposed. Then, she was hired as a sales director upon completion of a few details.

When does Belinda finally speak?

At first, she appears as passive since she does a lot smiling, nodding, and blinking. She doesn’t first say her first sentence until after all her clothes are removed, and after they have examined her physical appearance.

Why isn’t the plot the most important aspect of this book?

Jamie says that people don’t read erotica for things to make sense. Yet, his co-host, James Cooper, states how this situation would realistically never happen.

What does Belinda’s agreement to the job show?

Although Belinda is quiet and limits her amount of speaking, Jamie believes it shows that her character is strong because she knows what she wants, and is willing to go an unorthodox route to success. She did get the job and didn’t apologize for anything she wore.

How old is Belinda ?

Giselle becomes Belinda's colleague and she 26 years old. It’s possible that Belinda is older than Giselle since she descriptively compares her own appearance to Giselle's. Although, we do not know for sure at this point.
