On The Erotica Market

Roxanne Rhoads has written The Growing Genre of Er*otica at Funds For Writers. Here's a snippet:
Women and men are discovering a new breed of 21st century romance novels that are sexier and more erotic. This new genre is erotica. It has evolved from the romance novels your mom read, but these are not mom’s sappy love stories. The sex scenes are hotter and steamier and much more graphic. It’s a whole new genre of writing mainly for the woman who isn’t afraid of her sexuality. In the past several years erotica has found a home with many mainstream book publishers, in anthologies and on many web sites.

I don't want to burst any bubbled, but some of the websites mentioned in that article are out of date . One (Tit Elation) hasn't been updated in a while, and although they claim to publish print collections, they have only published one, and that is false advertising.

I'm publishing your comment in the interest of not hiding valid comments; but tread carefully as even anonymous people can be traced and held accountable for their words.

I'd have to count, but I have several issues of TE; you should take your concerns up with the publisher. And that goes for any publication/situation.
