Fifty Shades of Grey effect boosts award-winning Welsh publisher

Xcite has now signed a three-book contract with erotic and romantic novelist Grace Marshall – better known to some as KD Grace, whose erotic novel The Initiation of Ms Holly has been reprinted for a second time following increased demand in the wake of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Hazel says as well as sex, people still deep down want a love story at the heart of the fiction.

And she says that given a little encouragement, there is an erotic novelist in all of us.

“What we have realised is a lot of people, although they want it sexy, they also want a love story, and want the relationship element,” she said.

I also think more and more men are reading erotic fiction now, because a man’s just not going to want to carry around a book with a bodice ripper cover.
