I have been promoting my back list lately...


I began promoting my back list a month or so back, and today, I was pleasantly surprised to find a five star review on Her Own Set of Rules (9/09) over at The Romance Studio!

As an e-author, I have found that once a new release disappears from the new releases pages and scoots into the back list, sales drop exponentially. Once out of the spotlight, books wait to be discovered on your "author" page on the publisher's website, and seldom are found unless you have a new release every month or so. And even books that sell extremely well pass from view, and sales drop to a fraction of their former glory.

The book above, a hot menage, has subject matter that is close to reality...how marriages cool and sometimes fall apart for lack of communication and honesty between partners. Perhaps the blurb led readers to believe that there was no Happily Ever After. Perhaps even readers of erotic romance are nervous about books that touch on the subject of infidelity.

Many readers have mentioned that although they believe in "fuck on first sight", they do not want to read about a husband or wife cheating on their partner. But this book leads the reader through some personal and deeply moving problems between a married couple...and tells what they did to regain their marriage and their passion. This is what The Romance Studio had to say about Her Own Set of Rules...

Her Own Set of Rules

Fran Lee
Erotic fiction

Available from Ellora's Cave
ISBN: 9781419924132

September 2009


Her Own Set of Rules is a story about the marriage between Haley and Harry -- high school sweethearts. The classic jock and homecoming queen who marry after high school. Their lives have developed fine but they are in a dull rut. They both are wondering how they got to this place in their relationship where sex only happens on Saturday nights and ends so fast. Where is the heat and excitement they once had? Then one day Josh, who has loved Haley since he was young, returns to town looking all grown up and ready to demand that Haley notice him. Can this marriage last? Or adapt for everyone's happiness?

Fran Lee has written every married woman's fantasy. This story is pure hot silken pleasure to read and day dream about. Haley never expects Josh, the kid brother of her best friend, to return for her and she certainly never expected her husband to be open to more than a ten minute quickie. I promise you will re-read sections of this story and drool with envy. Fran Lee has written an over-the-top pure fantasy story that should be kept close to the bed side. This story is an easy and fast read that will leave you smiling at the end. I am looking forward to more fantasy created by Fran Lee.

Overall rating: 5 hearts
