Doncaster, Yorkshire (PRWEB UK) 21 November 2013
In May, Amazon, the leading online book retailer, reported that more copies of romance and erotic e-books were bought in Doncaster than anywhere else in the country, with Barnsley and Pontefract close runners-up; and the Halifax Travel Lodge recently reported that romance and erotic books are the most popular novels recovered from bedrooms. Now local author Tamara Gold has written The Turquoise Blue, the first in her Butterflies Trilogy, in which Sally Reynolds, a Doncaster supermarket checkout girl, tries to find her fortune. Published this month via Smashwords, The Turquoise Blue is available in a range of digital formats to suit most e-readers.
In this first book, Sally plans her revenge after suffering abuse as a child at the hands of her mother’s boyfriend. She knows she will never have a loving relationship with a man and determines to become a successful woman in her own right, whilst at the same time turning men’s ultimate weakness against them.
Tamara Gold has written several novels under different pen names, but The Turquoise Blue is her first venture into this particular genre of literature. “I loved writing about Sally,” says Tamara. “She had a terrible experience as a child, but she was not going to let it ruin her life. Sally is a very attractive young woman and discovers she has a power over men. In this first book, Sally goes to London and starts to work in a popular nightclub intending to use her power to make men suffer and so gain her revenge. Of course, it doesn’t quite work out like that. I hope you enjoy reading about my character, Sally Reynolds. Like millions of other people round the world, I read Fifty Shades of Grey, but it left me slightly perturbed. I’d call myself a strong-minded woman and I suppose I was unhappy that it was the man calling the shots. In my Butterflies Trilogy, Sally is very definitely in charge and loving it.”
