From bookstores to the Internet to Susie Bright's own tremendous success with the BEST AMERICAN EROTICA series, we are clearly reading and writing erotica more than ever.

Now Susie Bright shows readers how to heat up sex scenes in everything from traditional novels and romances to science fiction and horror. She guides aspiring writers in reading erotica to discover the elements and styles that work. Then she walks them through the writing process: how to get hot ideas, devise steamy plots, use language like a pro and bring the story to a memorable climax. Each chapter features writing exercises and suggestions for non-writing activities that will galvanise the imagination and flatten any hurdle. Drawing on her own experiences, Bright explains how to find an agent, work with an editor, choose a publishing company and sell the work.
