What is “Erotic Fiction”?
The goal of erotic fiction is first and foremost to deliver a well-crafted story. Erotic fiction may contain or reflect multiple genres and themes (ie: historical, paranormal, LGBTQ, BDSM culture, polyamory, contemporary, romance); however, for erotic fiction, the erotic element is the *primary* defining genre of the work.

Are you struggling, feeling invisible, and not knowing what to do next to sell your books? Sometimes do you just wish someone would tell you AND show you what to do next…and then next…and then next until you have a repeatable system that works for you? Ultimately, simplifying your marketing efforts leads to more time to write. That’s the dream, after all! In this workshop you will learn the secrets to become more visible and discoverable online as well as how to connect with your ideal readers.
