Erotic Writers Guide recommended

Executive Style magazine recently recommended the Erotic Writers Market Guide in an advice column for women. A reader had written in asking about whether reading erotica was a good way to “get in the mood,” and where to find stuff that wasn’t “crude or amateurish.” The columnist suggested that there is now a wide range of high quality erotica for women, but why not try writing some yourself?
