New Erotic Novel Sells 100,000 Copies in First Week
Sylvia Day is in exalted company. Her Amazon Author Rank places her in the top five most popular writers (she’s number four today) on Amazon.com with the launch of the trade paperback version of her novel Reflected in You. The book has been available in eBook format since October and has sold more than 450,000 copies — exceeding sales of Fifty Shades of Grey in its first week.
Reflected in You is the third book in Day’s Crossfire trilogy and has established her as a force to be reckoned with in erotica and romance, topping both print and eBook charts in the U.S. after its release last month. Its success has led Penguin to declare Day its “new erotic brand sensation” and the book is Penguin UK’s “fastest selling paperback for a decade”. Only J.K. Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy and Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol have sold more copies in their first week, according to Nielsen.
Like the Fifty Shades... trilogy, the book centers around a young woman and her relationship with a “tormented billionaire”. And yes, it’s sexually explicit content puts it firmly in the category of “mummy porn”.
So the answer to the question of whether Fifty Shades of Grey was a blip on our collective horizon looks to be ‘no’ — I’d guess we’ll be seeing more mummy porn on the shelves soon.
Any mummies here excited about this?
