Note from the Instructor: “As an erotic romance writer you must write a solid plot along with a sizzling romance as well as intense and in depth sex /love scenes. You must bring your reader right into bed with your characters. Readers of erotic romances want to be sexually aroused while reading a great romance. You will be encouraged to use sexual terminology. Here’s the rule of thumb - If you aren’t aroused when you write your love scenes then the reader won’t be either.”
