New York, NY, September 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Tears of Crimson Publishing, an independent publisher responsible for other such best-selling novels as A Night at Tears of Crimson and Eternal Crimson, announced today that their latest book, "10 Nights" will be released on September 1, 2012 in paperback and at Amazon.com. Featuring a collaboration between Tears of Crimson founder and author Michelle Hughes and best-selling UK writer Karl Jones, author of the crime thriller “Shattered,” “10 Nights” will allow a peek into the newly-rediscovered world of BDSM. The concept of BDSM in the world of erotica literature is not new, however, this partnership marks the first of such efforts between the two authors separated by over 4,000 miles (nearly 6,500 km) and pairs the writing talents of Hughes, an American, and Jones, a Briton, in a cross-continental collaboration that has resulted in this in-depth look at the exploration of the BDSM dynamics and their effects on a relationship.
"This collaboration owes its start to Facebook," Hughes explained. "Karl and I met in a writers’ group and there was an instant synchronicity of thought." While not the first erotica novel for Hughes, this is her first foray into collaboration with a male writer.
"This is a new genre for me,” Jones explained. His other titles include three full-length novels, including crime drama and fantasy, as well as a collection of shorts. “But I saw that there was clearly a draw for readers.” Originally contacted to edit the manuscript, his input gradually grew the text by nearly an additional 5,000 words. “As we began working together, it became apparent that we could use this partnership to illustrate both sides of this unique relationship,” said Jones. “We hope this will give readers not only greater understanding, but also give them a new and exciting viewpoint.”
The reading community – especially those reading and writing erotica – are not unused to BDSM. However, in the wake recent publications’ success within this genre, public acceptance of this once-taboo subject has not only grown, but flourished. These books are, by and large, fantasy, and offer a unique and tantalizing means of exploring sexual fantasies, and in many cases is, a safe, and healthy lifestyle for consenting adults.
“10 Nights” invites readers to experience the unlikely - but compelling - relationship that develops between the determined but impressionable Leah, a 24-year old college graduate, and wealthy business tycoon, Rhett Hammond. This pairing introduces readers to 10 nights' of erotic exploration and poses the ultimate question - in this modern game of cat and mouse in which 10 nights could change everything - who will win? And, will 10 nights be enough?
