Explicit Sex

Some of my friends still say I write porn. To be clear, I don’t. I write erotica, which means romance with explicit sex. Two years ago, I blushed every time I explained what I wrote to anyone who asked. Nowadays, it no longer bothers me, mainly because I’ve stopped worrying about what other people think.

Erotica is probably the most popular ebook genre and now that Barnes and Noble has acquired Fictionwise, a huge ebook distributer, four of my five eroticas will be available online through Barnes and Noble.

My sister likes to say once it’s on Oprah, it’s mainstream. Oprah had a show where she read the audience a snippet from an erotica novel. (If anyone knows what title she read from, please share!) That was about a year ago.

This morning I read through my monthly selections available to purchase from my Doubleday Book Club. Two of my favorite romanceĀ authors, Julia Quinn and Johanna Lindsey, have new releases. BOTH have explicit sex. For BOTH, this will be a new technique. And, to me, that proves explicit sex in romance is officially mainstream.

So, hold your heads up high, erotica writers! The trend is here to stay.

  1. Maybe instead of Author you could be “Happiness Consultant” …like Hung on Showtime, seen it?
