Publishers Panel

Selling Your BDSM Fiction and Non-fiction

Join us for a panel discussion with various publishers, editors and literary agents on how to market your BDSM short stories, novellas and novels, as well as memoirs and how-to books to the growing erotica market. Discover what editors and publishers are buying as well as predictions for the future and how to make your manuscript worthy of publication. Self-published authors will benefit from this workshop as well as discover ways to expand their market and improve their manuscripts to enable them to complete with other small press and the bigger houses.

Bonus: publisher/editor/agent appointments following immediately after workshop (12:00 to 1:30 p.m. Friday, August 19, 2016).
