About this project

Released in September 2011, Captive in the Dark, by CJ Roberts, has sold over 7,000 copies and has remained on Amazon’s Top 100, paid Erotica titles for over seven consecutive weeks and over 16 weeks since its release.

It's sequel, Seduced in the Dark, by CJ Roberts, is on course for a September 2012 release.

I need help to get it launched. There are posters and post-cards to be designed and printed. T-shirts for paperback launch party to be ordered. The printers have to be paid before finished books can be received. 

I have quit my day job to focus on getting the sequel out on time and I don't have all the capital needed to launch the book signing. Would appreciate all the help. I know the book is going to be a great success, but it takes money to make money sometimes.

Previous accomplishments:

654 Ratings between Amazon and Goodreads with an average rating of 4.2 Stars. 

Here’s what people are saying about Captive in the Dark:

“[…] This book doesn't just make you feel, it violently manipulates everything you think you know about empathy, hatred, love, and compassion.”

“[…] This author will take you on an emotional roller coaster that will leave you feeling sympathetic, unnerved, curious, contemplative, and eager to experience the conclusion to this complex tale of redemption, revenge, and the true power of love.” –“Amber”, via Goodreads May 22, 2012

BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!!!
“I don't usually write reviews, but after reading this book, I knew that I had to. This book is simply amazing! I wasn't quite sure what to expect when going into this book, but after reading the sample on my Kindle, I was hooked and had to find out what happened. And boy, am I glad I did! I stayed up until 3:00 in the morning to finish it.” –“Angel Bell”, via Amazon Sept 3, 2011

Unforgettable story that moves you and captivates you from start to finish
“Some have asked how it compares to Fifty Shades, and I say it's not at all a fair comparison. If I were asked to compare, I'd say where Christian is fifty shades of f*&ked up, Caleb is 150 shades. This is not an unforgettable love story that develops from a taboo lifestyle involving kinky f^&kery. No, Captive takes all of those disturbing things about dominance and [submission] that makes you cringe and just strips them bare until you have the most basic of animalistic behaviors left to contend with. And I think, to find the good, maybe even the love, in that...it's something very memorable” – “Swimmom4”, via Amazon April 28, 2012
