They say the best things come in threes – and Xcite Books, the UK’s leading publisher of erotic fiction, has signed a three-book contract with erotic and romantic novelist Grace Marshall. In the same week the publisher was named Book Brand of the Year for the third year running at the ETO Awards.

Grace Marshall is better known to Xcite readers as K D Grace whose erotic novel The Initiation of Ms Holly has been reprinted for a second time following an increased demand from readers looking for erotic titles similar to EL James’ Fifty Shades of Grey.

How Fifty Shades Of Grey has led to a boom in raunchy reading material

Author KD Grace’s erotic novel The Initiation Of Miss Holly (£8, BlueBella.com) also explores a BDSM relationship and has been compared to Fifty Shades Of Grey. She believes books are very powerful, particularly for women.

‘They trigger our imaginations and the creative side of ourselves,’ she says. ‘Women live more in their imaginations than men so when you give us a book, we can picture much more detail in our heads. We can make it more romantic, way hotter and much sexier than if you just give us something on screen.’

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.

The joy of e-text

However, the rise in the popularity of e-books combined with the power of social networking and the possibility that in a recession, cheap, escapist books hold even more appeal, appears to have created a perfect storm of sales.

“I remember going into book stores wanting something a little racy but not being brave enough to buy what was on the shelf because the covers were so hideous,” says KD Grace, the author of The Initiation Of Ms Holly, which re-entered Amazon’s romantic fiction charts following the popularity of the 50 Shades series.

“I thought, ‘What are people going to think if they see me reading this?’ ” she adds. “So to be able to read anything you want at any time is just phenomenal. 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. For the first time people are able to read whatever they want.”
