Debut #OwnVoices Romance
Arriving Spring 2021 from Avon Books
Who wants a steamy, second-chance, contemporary romance between a sex toy seller and a soul food restaurateur, set in Washington DC.?
“Editorial Director Erika Tsang signed Thien-Kim Lam, an author of stories about Vietnamese characters who smash stereotypes and find their happy endings. Lam’s novel centers on heroine Trixie Nguyen, who is determined to make her sex toy business a success, proving to her traditional Vietnamese parents that she can succeed in a non-traditional career. Her first pop-up event is going well…until she runs into the ex who dumped her.
Tsang says, “There’s an energy in Thien-Kim’s writing that I fell in love with almost right away. And the story feels universal, especially as it relates to our heroine Trixie, who bucks people’s expectations of who she should be and strikes out on her own path. With sex toys.”
