  4. I like your option for taking them off sale and repackaging with the sub titles visible in the description. Ie, you could title it "The Love in Action Series: Books 1 and 2." Then, in the description, mention "Unlawful Desires" and "Unlawful Seduction" as Books 1 and 2. And then follow Regina's advice above re: categorizing carefully. People will read between the lines (as there are a lot of readers actually trying to find romantic erotica but Amazon, by making everything "porn" makes it hard). Example: I can try to find high quality erotic romance but I'll end up seeing creepy sick stuff abou
  5. Hi Regina, Thanks so much for your response. Wish I had known this two years ago! Do you think the following would be worth my effort ... Taking the books off sale, changing the covers and changing the titles and making the current titles the subtitles? The current titles are Unlawful Desires and Unlawful Seduction. For example, I would change to ... Love in Action: Unlawful Desires and Love in Action: Unlawful Seduction. (I don't have a new title yet, this is just an example.) Another option is to taking the 2 books off sale and repackaging them as a two book set with a new o
  6. Hi Sassy, If you have already published your book on Amazon using an Erotica category, unfortunately you will not be able to change it without great, extensive, frustrating effort on your part. If you did not utilize Erotica categories, NEVER PUT YOUR BOOK WILLINGLY INTO EROTICA ON AMAZON. NEVER. Also, never check any box regarding Age and Grade Range. Simply ignore and go on. Amazon does not comprehend that there is a literary genre out there called "erotica". Amazon treats all items in its "Erotica" category as pornography. Once you get thrust into the Erotica Dungeon you will
  7. Mira, I truly appreciate this advice! I will indeed take a shot at revising the covers and reclassifying. My concern was that readers who aren't expecting erotica, might be offended and post a bad review. Has that not been your experience. Do you add any words in the description to warn readers. I've seen books that are clearly erotica described as "dangerously sexy." Is that enough warning? Thanks much! Sassy Sinclair (AKA Pamela Samuels Young)
  8. Here's what I advise -- Amazon is notorious with this and effectively if you mark your work as Erotica it will become VERY hard to find and limit discovery. If your work is first a legal thriller and second an erotic romance, classify it by the former. If your cover is extremely sensual, I'd recommend submitting it with an alternate cover to avoid having it categorized in this way. Sexy is ok; Sexual is not. You can mark it as Legal Romance or Thriller Romance -- but the minute you put Erotic on it you encounter trouble. There ARE other publishers out there and you can work outside of Amazon,
  9. Wooohoo aww that's so awesome again, to hear, you must share the dets in our newsletter when they come out!!
  10. Hi, I'm a mystery writer who's dipped my toe into erotic suspense. I need guidance on how my two erotic legal thrillers should be classified on Amazon. I marked that they should not be read by anyone under 18 and the sales have been abysmal when compared to my 9 legal thrillers (though I know that's apples to oranges). I read recently that Amazon doesn't promote erotica? Is that correct? I've also read articles about erotic authors whose books have been blocked on Amazon. But I see books with much more graphic sexual content than mine that are heavily promoted as "dangerous" romance,
  11. Congrats! I look forward to reading those. Michael DeMarco
  12. I'm thrilled to say that I've received two contracts from Totally Bound Publishing that came through the PI Pitch process! The first, one of the publisher's Sexy Snax, is 'Treat or Sex?' will be available around Halloween. The second, 'Red Rock Romance' is a novel that will come out next year. I can't thank PI enough for making this possible! Jane Colt
