So over the past year, erotic romance and hotter romances have like…exploded. I reckon we can thank 50 Shades of Grey for that-I’ve had sooooo many people who aren’t romance readers talking to me like… Wow! have you read this… people actually write about this stuff…
Um. Yeah. People do. LOL.
Those of us who have been reading hot romances for a while know there’s really nothing new in it. We’ve been reading the hot stuff, loving the hot stuff for a long, long while. Bring it on! We loves it!
But it’s taking on a life of its own and more and more people people are looking at romance and the hotter books in a different light.
I’m working on a thing that I’m doing in the spring-it’s a workshop and I’ve asked some of these Qs on twitter, my facebook page, but wanted to toss them out here, too.
I dunno about you all, but I’ve been reading erotic romance for QUITE a while. Since at least 2002, probably more like 2001 or earlier.
Some of the books that got me started were the Secrets anthologies by Red Sage… Angela Knight!!! Led me to Ellora’s Cave, which is how I got started…writing erotic romance.
So…for those of you like erotic romance and have been reading it a while, how did you get started?
Pretty please… this is for something very specific, and I *am* very specifically looking for pubs or authors from at least a few years ago…before 50 Shades. I know a lot of people love it, but I’m looking for how the genre has started, how it’s evolving and that’s kind of the current thing, but it definitely wasn’t the beginning.
Thank you for the feedback!
