Gay author Paul Ilett is celebrating after his first novel became an LGBT best- seller, more than four years after it was published.

Gay author Paul Ilett is celebrating after his first novel became an LGBT best- seller, more than four years after it was published.

Paul’s novel Exposé has sold more than 10,000 copies around the world but an unexpected boost in sales during June pushed it to the top of Amazon’s best seller list.

Exposé, a darkly comical thriller, tells the story of a Gay superstar actor’s revenge on a team of ruthless reporters who work for the world’s most salacious tabloid newspaper, The Daily Ear. It has five-star reader ratings across Amazon and Goodreads, and even received a glowing review from The Sun newspaper and THEGAYUK.

Paul, 49, said: “I’ve been very pleased with how Exposé was received, particularly as I’ve been getting messages from readers around the world who’ve enjoyed it. It’s not always possible to know exactly why there was a sudden increase in sales but it was very exciting to find Amazon had added “#1 Best Seller – Gay Fiction” next to it.

Paul put his writing aside for the past few years to study for a master’s degree but has recently started work on a sequel. “It’s lovely to be back in the swing of writing again and I hope the next book is received as positively as the first.”
