Erotica is on a serious rise especially since 50 Shades of Gray came out although it’s not really an original work. I don’t consider taking someone’s story changing a few character’s names and maybe a scene or two a novel. That’s just my way of thinking. Regardless tho more women are embracing the freaky side of themselves and some have sat down and started to write an erotic novel.
Ellora’s Cave is a publisher of romantica. Pretty much any part of that genre (and there are a lot of different levels one can write in) this publishing house will work with. The imprints are Pricked (stories revolving around tattoos, tattoo artists), Hex Appeal (stories about wanton witches, lusty warlocks and spells), Ball and Chain (stories on couples needing spice in their bedroom) and On The Hunt (stories based on bounty hunters).
