Imagine my surprise when I heard from my Berkley publicist that my upcoming project, BECAUSE YOU ARE MINE was mentioned in the 7/9 TIME magazine. If you get a chance, check it out while you’re at the grocery store. Here’s a blurb:
For further proof, ask publishers of erotica and “romantica,” which adds graphic, often S&M-tinged sex to traditional romance-novel formulas. These books have spiked sharply in popularity since Fifty Shades fever hit this spring, suggesting that for readers new to erotica, James’ work isn’t a one-off experiment but a gateway drug. Sylvia Day’s Bared to You—an erotic, decidedly Grey-toned tale of obsession that, like Fifty Shades, was originally self-published—has been climbing the New York Times best-seller list. Its publisher, Berkley Books, has also green-lit Beth Kery’s Because You Are Mine, an erotic e-book serial that will launch in July.
The actual date for the first installment (part) for this book is 7/31. I’ll have much more to tell you about it next week, when the links go live and I can show off my eight beautiful covers!
