Sales heat up for ro­mance au­thor

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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.
