Smart, sassy and full of everything you need to know. This is the ultimate guide to writing - and selling - an erotic novel.

Essentially, over a third of this book contains information on how to sell your book - whether to an agent, to a publisher or directly to the reading public yourself. It features up-to-date insights and advice on self-publishing, both digitally and traditionally, and strategies for self promotion using blogs, social media and reviews. Full of practical tips and creative inspiration from a bestselling novelist, this book is all you need to turn yourself into the next EL James.
