HARPERCOLLINS AUSTRALIA BUYS WORLD RIGHTS TO THREE EROTIC NOVELS FOR A SIX-FIGURE SUM
DESTINED TO PLAY BY INDIGO BLOOME
HarperCollins Publishers Australia has secured world rights to three new Australian erotic fiction novels for a six-figure sum.
‘The recent success of E.L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey proves there is a real hunger, right now, for erotic fiction’ says Harper Collins publishing director Shona Martyn. ‘Perhaps the rise of the e-reader has assisted offering more discretion for those reading in a public place than a conventional book; conversely maybe in tough times, we like a little more escapism than usual.’
As a result of unprecedented online demand for the title since it was announced Destined to Play will now be published in both print and digital editions in July 2012.
It's simple. No sight. No questions. 48 hours.
Dr. Alexandra Blake is about to give a series of prestigious lectures, but the butterflies in her stomach are for a far more exciting reason ...
After the lecture she is meeting up with Jeremy Quinn, esteemed doctor and dangerous ex-lover - the only person with whom she has ever let her guard down completely. After a few glasses of champagne in his luxurious penthouse suite, Jeremy presents her with an intriguing offer: stay with him for the next forty-eight hours and accept two extraordinary conditions, the first of which leaves her utterly at his mercy, and he will give her an experience more sensual and extreme than any game they have ever played before. This scorching novel is an erotic exploration of trust and betrayal, experimentation and control, lust and love.
The Sydney Intercontinental will be viewed the same way again! Forget Fifty Shades of Grey, this daring debut will leave you breathless for more...
Indigo Bloome is married with two children. She has lived and worked in Sydney and the United Kingdom, with a successful career in the finance industry. Indigo recently traded city life with a move to regional Australia, which provided her with an opportunity to explore her previously undiscovered creative side. Her love of reading, deciphering dreams, stimulating conversation and the intrigue of the human mind led her to writing her first novel, DESTINED TO PLAY. Of the book, and publication deal Bloome says, ‘Hopefully it provokes some frank and fascinating discussion, as it has with my family and friends. My mother was one of my earliest readers! When I started writing, it was primarily because I couldn’t find a book that specifically met my needs. Frustrated at searching for something that didn’t seem to exist, I figured I’d just give it a go myself.’
