First of all, let me say thank you for all of the work you do in bringing

autographed store copies (with or without an actual booksigning
event), please let me know. I sometimes travel for conferences and
even if I'm not close to your area, I may be able to stop there during

In-Depth Information On Each Book:
OATH OF SEDUCTION, my debut book, originally released in ebook
format at Ellora's Cave. It is the first book in a futuristic erotic
romance series (usually referred to as "The Shimerian Series" or "The
Oath Series.") It sold extremely well in ebook form, propelling me
quickly to one of the best selling authors at EC. The reviews have
been excellent. It was rated 4 ½ stars ("fantastic—a keeper!") by
Romantic Times Magazine. It was awarded the Romantic Times
Reviewers Choice Award for Best Small Press Futuristic Book of 2002.

consistently selling very well. The book can be ordered through
Ingram's Distributors or directly from Ellora's Cave Publishing by
OATH OF CHALLENGE is the second book in the series and it is a

WHO MY READERS ARE:
Romantica is selling extremely well these days. Ellora's Cave has
become one of the fastest-growing and best-selling small press
publishers in the industry and was recently recognized by RWA.
Other large publishers have capitalized on the popularity of erotic
romance with their own lines such as Harlequin Blaze and Kensington
Who are my readers? Well, I can tell you from my reader emails that
they're very diverse in age, ethnicity, geographic location, education,
and occupation. What do they have in common? They all have a
desire for a strong romantic love story with HEAT and a happy ending.
There's a large group of romance book readers who find erotica too
harsh. They want sexier books without sacrificing the emotional and
romantic impact of the story. They want realism in terms of
sexuality. Not porn, but books with a good old-fashioned healthy
appreciation for the power and beauty of what happens when two
people are attracted to each other. They're frustrated with romance
books in which the hero and heroine spend 180 pages arguing and
circling each other, only to end up making love…..in one single
paragraph (and sometimes with euphemisms so stilted and awkward
that they utterly ruin the moment).
There's a large section of erotica readers who want more romance in
their reading, too. They find the traditional erotica books too extreme
and want the emotional punch and romance without sacrificing the
heat. Finding good women's erotica is difficult. Finding ROMANTIC
erotic books written especially for women is even harder.
My reader base is primarily composed of these two large groups….the
more conservative erotica readers and the less conservative romance
readers. Essentially? I believe my books attract the middle. Judging
by the sales of erotic romance these days, I'd say it's a very large
group…and it's becoming larger as women discover that there are
very sexy, romantic, fresh and above all…FUN stories out there
written especially for them.
Thank you for taking up precious time reading this information. I
hope you found it helpful in some way. Please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to discuss any of the
information on this page.
I'd love to hear from you. :)
