For aspiring erotica writers - and authors in any genre who want to make the "good" parts great - here's how.
Susie Bright is the first and reigning queen of contemporary erotica. In How to Write a Dirty Story, she reveals her tricks of the trade and shows you how to heat up sex scenes in everything from traditional novels and romances to science fiction and humor. Easing the aspiring writer into the creative process, she tells you how to write the steamy plots and sensual characters that publishers and readers (and listeners) are looking for.
Bright makes it easy to:
Produce unique ideas
Master erotic language
Climax the story
Sell your work to the right place
Each chapter features practical writing exercises and suggestions for nonwriting activities that will galvanize the imagination and raze any creative or psychological hurdle. When it's time to go public, Bright draws on her own writing and publishing experiences and explains the most effective ways to find an agent, work with an editor, and grow a loyal audience.
As irreverent as it is practical, How to Write a Dirty Story is the only book an erotica author - novice or seasoned - needs.
"Every would-be and burgeoning author should read this." (Laura Miller, Salon)

"[Bright's] producing a work on writing erotica is akin to Stephen King or Patricia Cornwell writing about their craft." (Publishers Weekly)
