Bestselling Author Launches Multimedia Company

2007 will be an extremely busy year for Linda Dominique Grosvenor. Her multimedia company Princess Dominique Multimedia (www.PrincessDominiqueMultimedia.com ) officially launches with a soiree in New York City this Fall, but she will also release two long-awaited books, begin filming her documentary 'The Black List' this summer, and continues to maintain a hip and edgy pop culture blog at PrincessDominique.com/blog--this multi-dimensional phenom couldn't be happier.

For almost ten years as the literary industry tweaked itself and came up with creative sub-genres to accommodate new trends, Linda Dominique Grosvenor had taken a back seat, while those who hadn't even picked up a pen when she was totaling sales in the thousands of copies of her self-published debut novel, came onto the scene and garnered the spotlight. She's spent the past three years creating a multimedia plan and polishing up her 8th novel. Her love of the written word and letters from readers who are discovering her past novels are what helps her forge on. "People tell me all the time that I have a universal writing style, it's not dated with slang and other terminology. Some say that my books are more like modern classics and I love the idea of writing that way. I can still remember books I read in my teens. Twenty years from now I still want readers to be able to relate to my stories that way and I pray they leave that kind of legacy for generations to come."

Although her second novel Like Boogie On Tuesday assisted with launching Sepia Books (BET) in 2001 and the sequel Fever followed in 2002, she was determined that there was still a place in the market for stories that didn't use wild sex or drugs kingpins as its selling point. "Don't get me wrong, I love creating seductive scenes just as much as the next person, however, the true art of seduction is to get readers part of the way and then let them turn off the lights and roll over with their significant other and make it come to life for themselves." Having offered her novels to several start-up companies that didn't have the marketing savvy to garner her independent releases the recognition they deserved, she confesses, "I've been generous to a fault. I offered my talent to more than just a few companies, but with no stake in the companies other than royalties from the sale of the books, I've finally decided it was time to implement a long-overdue idea--Princess Dominique Multimedia."

In 2005 Grosvenor founded Princess Dominique Multimedia (www.princessdominiquemultimedia.com ) and launched the publishing division with her non-fiction book for singles The Plural Thing: Spiritually Preparing for Your Soul Mate in April 2007, which was met with an energetic reception from a ready audience. On the heels of her acclaimed collection of poetry Love Lingers to which Black Issues Book Review touted her, "an apprentice of language" she is slated to release Body Language; her sophomore collection that poetry-lovers across the U.S. have been anxiously anticipating. Currently seeking well-written fiction titles for possible publication, the new multimedia company will re-release Grosvenor's sixth novel The Hamptons (the first book in a 3-part chick-lit styled series) in paperback. This will be the third book in the company's 2007 line up.

"I'm not limiting my work to Princess Dominique Multimedia, that's why I'm currently on my third agent," she says. "I'm a writer and I will always find a variety of ways to express myself. A lot of things have ended for me, but there are plenty of things that have started over brand new for me in this season of my life, and this company is one. I've been soured on the idea of a partnership, so, Princess Dominique Multimedia is my baby and my goal is to use my 10 years of marketing and promotion experience and develop products in the vein of what I find fascinating; work by novelists such as Jenoyne Adams, Colin Channer and Sandra Cisneros and musicians like Maxwell, Alicia Keys and Teena Marie. I want my company to produce more of the same. Princess Dominique Multimedia is taking me places I've never been before. It has a film division too. I just love having the options. In this day and age, you need them!"

Linda Dominique Grosvenor has made her foray into non-fiction with the inspirational smash hit The Plural Thing: Spiritually Preparing for Your Soul Mate. The author of several popular novels including the summer sizzler The Hamptons, she maintains a popular online advice column at AskPrincessDominique.com and a pop culture blog at PrincessDominique.com/blog.
