* One-fifth of all adult fiction sales are romance novels.
Romantic and erotic fiction is the top-selling sector of the book market and since the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey series, the genre is booming. E.L James has sold 125 million copies of her novels following the relationship between powerful businessman, Christian Grey and college graduate, Anastasia Steele.
Millions of women worldwide have become faithful fans of the Mills and Boon books. One of their top authors, Penny Jordan, has written more than 170 novels and sold more than 70 million books worldwide.
But how are you going to make your romantic erotic novel stand out on the crowded shelves?
Romances come in almost as many types as there are kinds of readers—from erotic fantasies to inspirational faith-based stories, from historical to contemporary, from dark suspense to light humor, from girl next door looking for Mr. Right to urban chick looking for a new fling.
If so, our online course is for you! We can take you through every step of the process of getting a Romance & Erotic novel written and published if you follow the lessons closely, complete the exercises, and develop your manuscript alongside your learning.
You can choose to study the entire course before working on a project, or you can incrementally use the lessons to help write your novel – whichever works best for you!
