My current favorite female fantasy novel with female protagonist is “50 Shades Of Grey” by E. L. James. It is actually written by 49 year-old TV producer and mother of two Erika Mitchell loves to read risque novels.
She has been reading almost 800 naughty stories. Then she decided to write her own and post it online. After two years of so-called writing trash, she found success as a racy novels, with a six-figure book deal and a Hollywood film contract signed last month which said to be worth $5 million with Universal Studios and Focus Films.
Female Fantasy Novel with Female Protagonist
Erika Mitchell writes under the pen name E. L. James. People labeled her work as ‘mommy porn’. Her first book “Fifty Shades Of Grey”, has become a word-of-mouth blockbuster and is number one on the New York Times combined print and e-book fiction bestseller list. It has sold 250,000 e-book and print-on-demand copies. Yes, again this proves sex sells!
50 Shades Of Grey Red Room of Pain
The trilogy 50 Shades of Grey is basically about the relationship between an innocent, college student Anastasia Steele and an older, dashing billionaire Christian Grey. And the story is spiced up with spanking, wrist cuffs, and dirty talk. If you’re interested, you can get this female-fantasy book “50 Shades of Grey” from Amazon.
It is inspiring to know that, she has no big house behind her (no pun intended), Erika’s success in the U.S. came by word of mouth. Most of her sales have come from e-books downloaded by women who can enjoy them privately via e-readers.
It is interesting to know that women on both sides of the Atlantic love Erika’s illicit naughty stuff, even though there is nothing new in her stories. Conventional old-fashioned romance spiced with erotic power play, but no vulgar words. [source:Mail online]
