I truly believe that not a week goes by when 50 Shades of Grey doesn’t get more publicity in some form or another in Britain, I’m not sure about the rest of the world? A run-away marketing success. Today the Mail on Sunday You Magazine has an article about writing your own erotic bestseller. There are the top ten rules for success, the opportunity to attend a writers workshop in london on the 6th November and finally your chance to enter a short story competition writing your own erotica piece. Winners will get their entry published by Black Lace Books as part of a forthcoming eBook collection. Just complete 4000 words and submit by 31st october. Visit you.co.uk for all T’s&C’s.
Think you’ve got what it takes? Go on take a chance, you only live once!
It has gone nuts here too. I have not read them yet I regret to say. They are in my future books to be read. Erotica seems to have taken off since Shades of Grey entered the playing field. I have one on the back burner but have not decided if it will be something I proceed with or not. My assistant and editor is chomping at the bit for me to finish it, but I have been reluctant to publish it. Maybe one day I will take the big plunge!
