WHO BELIEVED IN ME. AND TO

A message to my potential readers:
Our Romantic Getaway is funny and exotic. NOT erotic. So please don't judge my novel before reading it.
I make no apologies for the genre of my book, although, in my opinion, it is exotic, not erotic. Read it, and you will see for yourself!
In the five years, it took me to write Our Romantic Getaway, I went back and forth as to whether or not I should use my actual name or a pen name.
In the end, many close to me thought I should be proud of my accomplishment, and not worry about what others might think. So I used my name and stepped into a quagmire.
The generalization that exotic or erotic fiction is nothing more than sex and porn is simply untrue.
Plus, erotic fiction has soared in popularity and market share over the last couple of years. The perfect example is the Fifty Shades trilogy by E.L. James, that exploded onto The New York Times bestseller list, and have reportedly sold more than 35 million U.S. copies.
Major publishing houses are now successfully releasing erotic fiction, and the genre continues to grow and expand.
And NO, the book is not about me.
