Ripley edited the overview of Zane Sunday, October 16, 2011.
Zane (not her real name) is the best-selling author of a plethora of African-American-oriented erotica, including Dear G Spot, Afterburn, Gettin' Buck Wild, The Heat Seekers, Addicted and The Sex Chronicles, to name a few. This iconoclastic phenom has also edited and/or contributed to such other titles as Love is Never Painless, Caramel Flava, Chocolate Flava, Best Black Women's Erotica, Brown Sugar 2, Twilight Moods, Dark Dreams, and Becoming Myself. Besides writing, Zane is the publisher of Strebor Books International for which she is responsible for acquiring dozens of titles per year and currently has nearly 50 authors signed to her imprint.
She originally self-published three titles in 2000 and went on to sell more than 250,000 copies; virtually by word of mouth alone. She has been published in several different languages including Japanese, Swedish, and Greek. She has been on the Essence Magazine bestsellers list consistently since she began her published career. She is the only author to ever have three out of five of the top fiction sellers in one month and she accomplished the feat for several months in a row. Recently, Zane held down seven of the top fifteen African American fiction titles at Waldenbooks Nationwide including the first, second and third positions.
She serves as the moderator of PlanetZane.net, where thousands of her fans who call themselves "Zaniacs" converge on a daily basis to discuss her work, as well as love and relationships. Zane has more than 35,000 MySpace friends and nearly 400,000 friends at BlackPlanet.com.
