Electa Rome Parks
Electa Rome Parks is a self-published author.
Her best-selling novels, The Ties That Bind and, Loose Ends, were originally self-published through her own company, Novel Ideal Publishing, and Editorial Services Company, a company now dedicated to quality editorial services.
Parks has been writing as long as she remembers. After years of keeping a diary, journaling, writing short stories and poems, her first novel was born in 2001. "I developed a love, respect, and appreciation for books at a very early age", states Parks. "I realized words were powerful, they could change lives, ideas, beliefs, your view of the world and yourself. Writing is my therapy. It clears out all of the clutter of everyday living".
After successfully self-publishing her debut novels, New American Library, a division of Penguin Group, bought the rights. Ms. Parks signed a three-book deal with New American Library. The Ties That Bind and Loose Ends were re-released in 2004. Both books were immediately chosen as Black Expressions Book Club selections and embraced as Books of the Month by book clubs across the country.
Since then, Electa has become a best-selling author of several mainstream and erotic novels with Penguin Group, HarperCollins, and Kensington.
