How to write and sell BDSM in an ever changing market

UNFORTUNATELY, THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO THE AUTHORS’ INABILITY TO ATTEND. WE LOOK FORWARD TO HAVING IT AVAILABLE NEXT YEAR.

The workshop is designed to help give writers a competitive edge in writing BDSM. We’ll discuss the value found in branding one’s self, writing in multiple genres, the importance of research, and marketing in a tasteful manner so an author’s work will appeal to readers. We’ll also discuss establishing trust within your readership and why choosing a publisher for your BDSM manuscript is so important. The workshop will give some helpful tips on how writers can stay true to their voice, how to be different and still appeal to an already established BDSM readership, and where to promote your BDSM romance books. This session is ideal for new BDSM writers as well as seasoned writers who are new to writing BDSM.
