  • Why authors shouldn’t fear approaching an editor
  • Why erotica deserves the same editorial rigour as any other genre
  • The rise of romance and erotica in mainstream publishing
  • How to find an editor who specializes in erotic fiction
  • Subgenres and the benefits of specialist editing: LGBTQ, kink and taboo (BDSM and powerplay dynamics)
