Learn how the Erotic Romance genre is just exploding. Learn about the skyrocketing sales and the methods erotica authors and publishers use to find their audience. And -- wonder how those handsome hunks end up on the cover? We'll find out how they get there and what it's like to be on the cover of one of the hottest selling books around!”
