I had to make a video of finding my book on a bookshelf at the local bookstore, Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena, CA. I went into the store to find it on the shelf with other local authors, but found this instead...
Thank you Vroman's for your support and being the first bookstore to stock The Harem on your bookshelves! :)
You can buy The Harem on Amazon.com, Barnesandnobles.com, SteamyRomanceBooks.com, Smashwords.com . . . but NOW . . . you can buy The Harem directly on a bookshelf!
Vroman’s Bookstore of Pasadena, California, is the first brick and mortar bookstore to offer The Harem directly to its customers. You can buy a paperback copy off the shelf. They’ve also added The Harem paperback and ebook editions on their website as well.
We are very grateful to Vroman’s for adding The Harem to their romance collection!

Huge thanks to all readers of The Harem, especially the reviewers who offered such kind words!
This is such a great book. The characters are ppl you can relate to. This book made us use our brains to think and use common sense by looking at the picture as a whole not just by what someone says. The characters show warmth and strength and even forgiveness and can stay positive and focused in a storm. Jim and I got great conversations out of this. Overall we just so enjoyed reading This book, and got great lessons out of it. The Harem Rocks!
Happy 2015 National Readathon Day! What are you reading?

Another outstanding review from Goodreads member, Pao! What a wonderful review!
By Pao on Goodreads.com:
I feel bad for giving it 4 stars u.u...
But as my rating says, I really liked it!
I'll list what I loved because I'm not that fluent in my writing:
*I loved that this was not the typical erotic novel and it definitely was not what I envisioned in my mind.
*I loved that the characters were not crazy, psychotic, stalkerish or possessive. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT.
*Robert, Robert, Robert...Mr. Robert Montgomery is:
I'm not saying this because of how amazing in bed he is, or his money or how hot he is. We are talking about a gentleman here. A real man. He's not damaged, possessive or a stalker (I have no idea why people feel attracted to that). He treats women with respect, it feels like he really appreciates and cherish them and, as I mentioned before, is a real gentleman, in and outside the bedroom ;).
*Susan (Wednesday) is a character that has an actual growth and development throughout the whole story. I loved the way she builded her life and how she was focused in interesting matters and not just in chasing a man.
*Love is not labeled in this story. It flows naturally, feels real, it is what it is and that's a beautiful thing.
*The orgy and f/f time
It was my first time reading scenes like those and, in my opinion, they were really well written.
*The end! I loved the end of the story. Again, THANK YOU because it wasn't the typical boring HEA.
*More than being an erotic book for the senses, it's erotic for your subconscious. For the mind. It's a powerful story that will change you way of think and seeing things.
One of the reasons why it didn't reach the 5 stars (for me) I hope I don't sound like a pervy or dumb is because I wanted more steamy scenes.
Also,I must say that I consider myself an open minded person and I respect peoples believes whatever they are, but I had a hard time in understanding and accepting Wednesday's abilities.
Other than that, The Harem is a breath of fresh air, it's unique, original, powerful, changing, positive and inspiring. A wonderful debut of Thomas Sweeney.

Many thanks to Pao for such a generous and honest review of #TheHarem!

The Harem by Thomas Sweeney Preface Video
Wednesday - The Harem
The Harem is a dramatic romance novel testing cultural boundaries through the innocent eyes of Susan Winthrop.
Getting the dream internship of her life, Susan quickly discovers there is much more involved than she ever bargained for or could have possibly imagined.
Susan Winthrop, a shy, self-conscious, nineteen-year-old college student struggling to find her way in life without the support of family, discovers the position of her dreams, or so she thinks, until the requirements of the
internship and potential employment are revealed.
While Susan struggles with her own morals, she discovers an entirely new world opening to her and her desires. Slowly, she begins to embrace this new position and excel, realizing her own amazing potential in ways she never envisioned and that some may fear.
However, her new found love, friends and colleagues prove fallible. Susan soon discovers that the result of making mistakes at this new level of life are far reaching and can be extremely dangerous and damaging.
The innocent struggle of a young, budding college student suddenly unfolds into a struggle for life in an extremely hostile social and political world that abhors change and regularly embraces fear and persecution.
As Susan wrestles with her new found knowledge, power, wealth and life, she is forced to fight to defend her right to grow as she sees fit.
