    A Primer for Aspiring Writers of Erotica

    Susie Bright, of 'The Best American Erotica' series, scores again with a fabulous book on the inside scoop of erotic writing. Being an aspiring writer of erotica, I just had to get this book, and could not put it down. I recommend the book.....to anyone who dares to break convention and write sexy forbidden words......
