Now this kind of news, I like to see!

It's good for our site, and everyone who's on here trying to make a career from their writing (or money from their endeavours).

Very positive signs for our particular genre.

"50 Shades of Grey" may not be the best piece of literature ever written, but it sure has helped our cause.

Here's something else you'll find encouraging Nic...I shared this over on FB earlier, don't know if you noticed...but, definitely a sign erotic romance is going mainstream...

This coming Sunday, March 24, the CBS Sunday Morning news show will be doing a segment on Ellora’s Cave Publishing, which includes a number of authors on my friends list btw...CBS Correspondent Bill Geist interviewed CEO Patty Marks, and along with Patty, they also did an interview with one of EC’s most popular authors, my friend Desiree Holt who has written and published over 130 books. Another interesting fact about Desiree? Along with producing exciting, sizzling romance fiction, she is a 76 year old widowed grandmother...check it out my friends...and watch the show this Sunday...happy8
