How Cool is This?

I have been asked to speak at a small writer group in London about my first year as a self-published Erotic Romance author…I know…so excited!!! I mean it will be a quick talk because I get super fast when I’m nervous, and also I go so red, I look like I am about to haemorrhage but still…

So what am I going total about…hmm well I did a rough…ahem, very rough list:

Points to cover (very roughly and not necessarily in this order)

* But you’re not a real writer…Self Publishing is vanity publishing…tell that to my bank account.

* Giving it your all…professional help (seeing the ‘would’ for the trees)…be nice.

* You are your Brand – Your covers, blog page, FB and other social media

* Visibility – Why Erotic Romance?

* Advertising and Bloggers…Street Teams and crazy people.

* Something for Nothing…why I gave away 30K plus ebooks?

* Book signings and beyond.

And then the organiser suggested a fun writing competition to write an erotic scene..winner gets a free drink at the bar…oh did I mention it’s being help in a pub?…Well why else did I agree 😉

I think the writing bit should be fun…the sex scenes are always the hardest to write…no pun intended…honest.

I’m hoping I can join the group…they meet every month and in my favourite city, so an excellent excuse for a night out…like I need an excuse 🙂
