Are you an author? Do you self publish dark or taboo fiction, or are you considering it in the future? If so, I’d love to invite you to my chat with Savvy Authors. Digicon is an online conference for indie and self publishing featuring workshops and chats for authors. I’m hosting the following event:
Writing on the Edge: Killers, Captivity, and Dubious Consent in Dark Romance
May 30, 2014 7:30 p.m. EST
Paranormal romance has explored anti-heroes and taboo themes for decades, and we’re finally getting the same freedom in contemporary romance. Self-published authors are pushing boundaries, and readers are responding by propelling them up the sales charts.
What do you need to know if you’re considering incorporating dark themes in your work? What are the considerations in terms of reader expectations and content warnings? What do Amazon and other distributors disallow?
Skye Warren is the New York Times bestselling author of dark romantic fiction. She has been called a “true mistress of dark and twisted love stories.” (The Forbidden Bookshelf) Skye will draw on her self-publishing dark erotica and romance for the past two and a half years to arm you in publishing your own boundary-pushing books.
Please note: This chat will contain frank language of sexual and taboo subject matter.
You can see the full class listing here. I hope you’ll join me on Friday to chat!
