Editing Corner: That’s not a Romance

In my last blog, I talked (okay, blogged) about the difference between a scene and a story—a critical difference if we seek to elevate our erotica above the merely erotic, to make it both satisfying and memorable. It talked about all the ingredients I collect for a... read more

That’s not a Story…

(…That’s a Story)   By Belinda LaPage (ERWA Gallery co-editor) Yes, I paraphrased Crocodile Dundee. I’m Australian. What did you expect? Move along. Scene vs. Story Erotica writers, have you ever written a hot little scorcher only to be told by some... read more
