Sales heat up for romance author
TEMPERATURES rose as the latest from sci-fi romance author Imogene Nix debuted in bestseller lists last week.
The Gayndah author’s novella TangledWebs features in the anthology Sex, Love and Aliens – a top-10 choice in All Romance e-Books and Amazon’s romance sci-fi.
“I’m pretty stoked with it,” said Nicola Pitt, who writes under the pen name Imogene Nix.
The anthology brings together four authors from two publishing houses, and Ms Pitt has promised there would be another in due course.
While TangledWebs took her about a week to write after ground work was done, others can take up to a couple of years.
“It really varies on the subject matter and how comfortable I am with it,” she said.
Ms Pitt has written 27 books in five years, and 50% of her titles are erotic sci-fi romance.
“Most people don’t take a chance on it (but) we’re the stuff that’s starting to sell,” she said.
The attraction to sci-fi was “new storylines and new worlds: interpreting a world in your head and putting it on paper”.
With her Reunion series due out as a box set in January and contracts signed for another three books, readers can be assured Ms Pitt’s love affairs with sci-fi and romance will continue.
