What is Passionate Ink?

We’re an online special interest 501(c)(6) non-profit organization for erotic fiction authors incorporated in Texas, supporting all erotic fiction genres (such as erotic romance). Our goal is to promote erotic fiction through education and to encourage good will and respect for all erotic fiction writers, regardless of the genre in which they write. This is the place for erotic fiction writers to be heard, understood, educated, supported, and encouraged. Learn more

What we do

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.

BISAC Category code WIN for Erotic Romance

Passionate Ink submitted a request to the Book Industry Study Group who creates all of the BISAC codes for books. We asked that they include Erotic Romance into their codes. If you’ve ever published a true erotic romance, you know that they get put into categories that don’t exactly describe what it is. Erotica and Erotic Romance are NOT the same thing. We compiled a list of codes to submit to BISG in the hopes that they would add them to their catalogue. Approval only happens once at the end of each year and we were fortunate enough that we were able to submit in August and only have a short time to wait for the results.

We submitted FICTION / ROMANCE/ EROTIC as the starting point and from there we submitted sub-genres of that, similar to what you already see within the romance genre. Ex. FICTION / ROMANCE / FIREFIGHTERS.

I’m happy to announce that BISG added the category code FIC027010  FICTION / Romance / Erotic

This is a BIG win for writers of Erotic Fiction, and especially erotic romance. We support all writers and are proud to be the organization that erotic fiction authors can call upon in this ever-changing industry!

While they are taking baby steps by only adding one of the thirty codes we requested, we have high hopes that they will continue to add more in the coming years.
