Erotica Writing 101

Work With Me

Think you’re ready to write the next blockbuster erotic novel, or have an erotic story you’ve poured your heart and soul into and want to get published? Read Fifty Shades of Grey and sure you do better but not sure where to turn? I can help.

As an editor of over 60 anthologies, I have read thousands of erotica stories and can help you hone your story or sex scene into one that will dazzle on the page and impress editors. Looking to add sexuality to your fiction manuscript, or to complete an erotic story and see it published? I’ll help guide you on how to amp up the sexual tension, draw the reader in and sell and market your work to what today’s editors and publishers are looking for. See below for individual coaching and private small group writing workshops; see upcoming classes for my in-person and online workshops.


I offer one-on-one story and novel development critiques and editing sessions as well as private classes for small groups. I’ll help you hone your craft, tap into the heart of your erotic plot, complete a short story and prepare it for submission to a current erotica market, as well as offer guidance in pseudonyms, branding and promoting your work to make you stand out to today’s editors. Whether you’ve got an erotic story or novel and want to know how to get it closer to publication or you want help turning your sexy ideas into completed pieces of writing, I can help. See below for individual coaching and private small group writing workshops; see upcoming classes for my in-person and online workshops.

Short story and long-form erotic fiction development

Have a story that you’ve tried to sell but aren’t having any luck? Want to take your fiction and amp up the sex scenes? Have an idea for an erotic novel but don’t know where to start? I’m available for one-time editing and coaching sessions (suitable for those who have a completed draft they need help finishing) or on an ongoing basis (for those who want to work on their writing over a period of one to three months). See below for rates or contact me about your specific critique needs.

Email with “Critique Pricing” in the subject line; please tell me what your writing background (if any) is, what you want to write about and what form you see your writing taking (short stories, novellas, novels, etc.) and how many words your writing project contains, and I will respond within 72 hours with a price quote.

Critique service

For those who’ve already completed or are working on a draft of an erotic short story, novella or novel, you get a complete line-by-line edit, plot critique, and advice on where to submit your writing for publication. Most projects will be completed within one week. You can also use the phone call portion of the critique to get advice about selecting a pseudonym, creating and optimizing your social media accounts and building your author brand.
