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.

They live with a constant diverse cast of characters in their head. They live for one purpose alone, and that’s to make sure everyone gets the happily ever after they deserve. There is nothing more they want from telling their stories than to show that no matter the package the characters come in or the damage their pasts have done, that love is love. That normal is never normal and sometimes the so-called broken can still be beautiful. The author is Non-Binary and uses the pronouns They/Them.
