Author Beth Kery says that in the romance genre, there is a trend for “more sexual content, more graphic sexual description and more honesty about what happens in the bedroom.”
After the success of the Fifty Shades books and Bared to You, it does certainly seem as though readers want “more” of all of the above—and Kery plans to deliver with her new erotic e-serial, Because You Are Mine, about the relationship between a businessman and an artist who live in Chicago.
Starting tomorrow, July 31, Part I of the novel will be available to readers for $1.99. There will be eight parts in all. The installments will be released every Tuesday until September 18. Because You Are Mine will be available exclusively as an eBook published by InterMix, the e-initial imprint of Berkley and NAL (part of the Penguin Group).
BookPage interviewed Kery about her serialized novel, which she hopes will give readers an experience similar to “watching a television show and anticipating the next episode.” She said, “I think the small wait—the parts come out weekly every Tuesday—will help to build excitement and deepen an awareness of Ian and Francesca’s love story.”
