So you read Fifty Shades of Grey and thought you could do it better? You’re not alone. (I plead guilty and I’m not even halfway through book one.) Before you throw yourself at it, do yourself a favour and read How to Write Hot Sex.
I devoured this book over the weekend and can not recommend it enough. Ten published erotic romance writers each tackle a particular subject and shower the reader with advice. There’s even a section on how to write Male/Male romance. Not that I ever would (I’m the biggest fag hag you’ll ever meet, but my tastes reside elsewhere), but it was a cause for great glee (and I’d never heard of ‘pitching’ and ‘catching’ before.) At $4.99 it’s definitely worth the investment.
In other news, The Honeymoon will be released next week and Learning Curve, the next sexy story set in groovy Berlin, should be out before the end of July. After that, it will be time for a free short again.
