Is this 23-year-old the next E.L James? Top Blogger Turns Novelist with New Erotic Fiction Title

July 16, 2014



A 23-year old London-based writer may be in the running to become the next major selling erotic fiction author. Top beauty blogger and budding fashion designer Aura Borealis, who writes her sexy stories under the pseudonym Lola Pulse, is creating a steamy buzz this summer with the release of her self-published title, Xoxo Lisa. Far from the weak, submissive character of Anastasia Steel in the popular 50 Shades trilogy, Pulse’s story centres around a high-flying, high earning, anonymous city blogger. On her inspiration for the story Borealis says "I think we've all had enough of clumsy girls chasing after billionaires, I wanted to write something with a strong female voice. It’s very racy, but has a light sense of humour about it, completely different from 50 Shades.”

Pulse’s sexy stories will be charted in a steamy trilogy, with part one just published and part two to follow in September. On what her friends and family think of her latest career path, “It’s definitely raised a few eyebrows, but generally, they don’t mind me writing erotic fiction, we just haven’t told the church pastor yet!” Borealis joins the ranks of many authors forgoing major publishing houses and opting for the freedom of self-publishing. The do it yourself e-book publishing phenomenon finds a natural home with the legions of top bloggers turning their hands from posts to prose, with some industry insiders saying it has contributed to the recent drop in physical book sales.  Self publishing has also given birth to a trend of much younger writers putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboards. An increasing number of twenty-something budding novelists are beginning to rise up the literary ranks. 25 year old Anna Todd recently inked a six figure publishing deal for her One Direction Fan-fic ‘After’, having racked up millions of reads on the popular writing site Wattpad. Aura says she has no plans to approach major publishers yet and is looking forwards to part two of XOXO Lisa in September.

Erotic fiction only takes up half of the young writers pen-time. She predominantly writes teen-fiction and plans on publishing her first teen novel ‘Torn’ next month. The deeply emotional story centres around her own experiences in secondary school, the breakdown of a friendship and navigating the pressures of adolescence. “It's a difficult part of life for everyone, but it’s inspired a story, so I don’t complain about it,” she says. Borealis’ blog, www.auraborealiswrites.com currently boasts over 50,000 followers and she’s recently launched A Book to the Heart, an online campaign encouraging more people to read.

When she's not penning naughty reads, she's putting her fashion marketing degree to good use and is starting up her own luxury fashion label, Aura Borealis Designs.  Her capsule collection of luxury silk scarves will be available in August featuring artwork by Italian artist, Lucia Fioretti.
