I’m proud to finally be able to let my blog readers know that I will be speaking at Eroticon 2013!
From the bio that’s been published on the site, you can probably get the jist of what I’ll be speaking about. Right now, the initial plan is for me to discuss the more commercial aspects of adult writing – working with porn sites, sex toy retailers, as well as ghostwriting.
A lot of the focus at Eroticon is for novelist and bloggers who earn an income through royalties and ad revenue. I’ve often had these writers get in touch with me ‘on the hush’ to find ways of breaking into the commercial field of writing, and what that entails. It seems that sometimes, writing for money (rather than the pure enjoyment of the craft) is a tad taboo. I’m hoping to be able to push that aside for a moment or two, and give those who are interested the means to get their foot in the door when it comes to commercial adult writing.

Not that I had any doubt that I would be attending, but today it is official. I’ve purchased my ticket to Eroticon 2013. The 2012 event was the premier of this sex bloggers and erotica writer’s event, and I am glad to see that it has been extended to a full two days for the 2013 reincarnation.
According to the web site, Eroticon 2013 is described as “the UK’s only conference for sex bloggers and erotica writers. […] If you are sex writer, blogger, editor, publisher, journalist, performer or artist Eroticon 2013 will be the networking event of the year. Meet with like minded people and leading voices of the erotic industries, make new contacts and learn new skills in a safe and supportive environment.”
Right now, tickets are in the “Super Early Bird” phase, where you can get the ticket for £77.53 for one day (£75 + fee) or £128.78 for the two days (£125 + fee). If you’re a bit stretched for cash at the moment, you can get it on an installment plan. You’ll be charged £50 up from, then two payments of £37.50 (plus fees) monthly thereafter. This Super Early Bird phase of the Eroticon 2013 tickets only lasts until 01 September 2012, so you have around six weeks to get in and get it at the early price.
With the lineup that is already set up for this year, I know that it’s going to be an amazing event. Hope to see you there!

I had an amazing time at Eroticon this weekend. It’s given me a much needed battery recharge and reaffirmed that what I do is valid, appreciated, and profitable. Rather than go into a long journaling session, I thought I’d list a few thoughts I had about my experiences at this erotica writer’s conference.
Keep going…I want more…

Before Christmas, I took part in an interview with a great blogger called Marie Symeou. She’s the author of Frozen In Time, a novel about an ancient Greek vampire.
Author interviews are a great way for erotica writers to get their names out there, and draw a bit of attention to your style. I was glad that Marie had some great questions that went beyond the “what’s your favorite color” train of thought.
For those of you who are interested in reading about this erotica writer, catch the interview with Ruby Goodnight.
