How to Make Money Writing Romantic or Erotic Fiction
Love sells and sex sells and you can earn your living writing about them for novels, novellas and short stories as well as serials for magazines, anthologies and websites. This book holds the secrets of how to achieve success. As well as drawing on her experience as a fiction writer and creative writing tutor, in this 'must-have' book Sue has included questions from aspiring writers - with illuminating responses from published writers and industry experts. Romantic fiction encompasses everything from chart-topping chick lit and romantic comedies, through gritty sagas, sweeping historicals and smouldering erotica to liver-twisting affairs with vampires. Bright, emotional, involving, intelligent storytelling about love and desire is what readers want and will pay for. Do you want to know how to create emotional punch? (Or even what emotional punch is?) How to control dual time lines? Spring your work out of the slush pile? Write a tender love scene that excites passion rather than hilarity? This book reveals all. Sue Moorcroft writes novels, serials and short stories, articles for writing magazines and writing courses. As a creative writing tutor she has taught at the University of Leicester, the London School of Journalism, Adult Learning Services Northants, Writing School Leicester and Writers' News Home Study. A committee member of the Romantic Novelists' Association, she is the editor of their anthology, Loves Me, Loves Me Not. She's a past winner of the Katie Fforde Bursary Award.
