Me too. Am so scared of it.
Plus new place will be close to donna
so we can continue our quest to become awesome romance writerz.
Together you write porn and fight crime?
LOL! I am going to have to make a retraction manifesto. Our editor finally broke it to us that we don't write erotic romance. WE ARE NOT DIRTY ENOUGH.
(Okay, we have a few short stories that qualify, but NONE of the long stuff. *sniffles*)
... so, wait, what's the difference between erotic romance and porn?
Erotic romance makes your pink bits tingle, while porn is what you touch your tingly pink bits to?
The same difference between any other genre with specific conventions and porn?
I may see some wiggle room when one starts trying to break down porn vs erotica, but erotic romance is an ENTIRELY different thing.
... and now that I think about it I see the difference. x_x Sorry, I'm a little braindead right now.
LOL! It's a wanky topic. Honestly I think I've written more erotica than actual erotic romance, because the short short stories are not really romances with a romance arc.
It's pretty well agreed that you can't have a romance without a Happily Ever After, so to be an erotic romance it has to have the whole love, black moment, resolution, HEA WITH all the hot sex. Otherwise it's like making a porn movie about pirates and calling it erotic sci-fi because it has sex in it.
