The Erotic Writer's Market Guide: Advice, Tips, and Market Listings for the Aspiring Professional Erotica Writer by Circlet Press Collective
With its up-to-date marketing listings, interviews with editors and working professional erotic writers, and hardhitting how-to articles, The Erotic Writer's Market Guide 1999 will be a must for any writer who has every dreamed of writing down his or her sexy fantasies and getting paid for them!
Literary erotica is a burgeoning genre, which is finally beginning to get the respect it deserves with annual anthologies such as Susie Bright's Best American Erotica series and separate sections devoted to erotic books in independent bookstores and even chains like B. Dalton's and Borders.
For the first time, in one place, writers can find guidelines for both book publishers and magazines, from all over the world, who are looking for erotic material. The Erotic Writer's Market Guide contains information on markets for heterosexual, pansexual, lesbian, and gay male erotic writing, with special indexes that make it easy to identify publishers seeking material that appeals to a particular fetish or kink, such as S&M.
