FIFTY SHADES OF GREY Inspired BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE Hits Kindle Top 25

Related: Alessandra Torre, Adult, Ebook

To stand out from the crowd as a new author is not an easy undertaking but that is exactly what Alessandra Torre has done with her first erotic novel-Blindfolded Innocence. Reader frenzy, created solely by word of mouth, has catapulted this novel into a meteoric rise of success. A testament to Torre's success are the thousands of copies sold daily as a Kindle bestseller, carving out her own following behind the popular phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey. "I love writing, and, after departing from a full-time job six months ago, I decided to pursue writing my first novel. I had little to no expectations other than the hope of testing the waters and procure feedback on my writing capabilities," said Alessandra Torre . Feedback has certainly been received with over two hundred rave reviews posted to Amazon, Facebook, and sites such as Goodreads.com.

The stats for Blindfolded Innocence speaks for itself. Only three months ago, this erotic romance appeared on Kindle among an estimated 1.3 million books-all but lost in a sea of thrillers, historical fiction, and romance. Today, Blindfolded Innocence shares the Kindle Top 25, among the ranks of books such as E.L. James ' Fifty Shades Trilogy, J.K. Rowling 's The Casual Vacancy, and The Hunger Games Trilogy. Due to this unexpected success, Torre has fielded calls from top industry agents, publishers, and offers for everything from audio, print, and foreign rights. Torre recently entered into a representation agreement with a New York-based literary agent in hopes of using their vast experience to position Blindfolded Innocence in the best way possible.

Like most industries, the Internet has created new opportunities for writers. First-time authors are now able to test their work in the open market, without having to depend on an agent or publisher. Just five years ago, an aspiring author would have had to send their manuscript to hundreds of publishers in hopes that one of them would read and accept their work. Now, these authors can, not only self-publish their work, but get instant feedback from readers. However, success does not come easily to all. The average amount earned by self-published authors last year was just $10,000, and half made less than $500. But for those who do strike it big, the earnings can be huge.

Blindfolded Innocence is similar to Fifty Shades of Grey in that it is written for mainstream readers-not diehard romance fans who prefer medieval settings, fantasy characters, or weak heroines. Blindfolded Innocence tells the story of an innocent intern and her introduction to the world of threesomes and the swinger lifestyle. In late October it will be available on all national ebook retailers. It is currently listed on Amazon at www.amazon.com/dp/B008NBGN5O. For more information visitwww.alessandratorre.com.
