The Harem - Thomas Sweeney

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! Though Thomas Sweeney is a local, California author, Vroman’s immediately placed The Harem on an end of the isle shelf with world-renowned authors such as E. L. James, Sylvia Day, Maya Banks, Anne Rice, Sylvain Reynard and L. Marie Adeline.


Thanks so much Vroman’s for this wonderful opportunity! We were very excited when we found The Harem on the shelf, and even better, that one of the copies was sold before the end of the day, today, February, 18, 2015.


Vroman’s has been established in Pasadena California since 1895. Be sure to keep books alive, and more importantly, keep local bookstores alive!


Support local bookstores and purchase directly from Vroman's if you don't live in Pasadena, CA: http://www.vromansbookstore.com/book/9780986227202


Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

Kindest Regards,

Thomas (author)

The Harem Receives Another Glowing Review! Thanks Anita and Jim!

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!


5 Stars:  Anita and Jim on Goodreads.com

The Harem Hits Another Home Run! Woohoo!

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.

My weekend got a whole lot brighter thanks to a generous comment for Abby on Goodreads!  I'm just enjoying the wonderful feeling and hoping to share it with folks here on Booklikes too.  Huge thanks to Abby!


I'm new to Booklikes and just realized that each piece I upload goes on a newsfeed.  Apologies for the barrage of materials for my book.  This platform is making sense to me now.  Thanks for your patience!  Happy reading, everyone!
