Excerpt from email received from an editor:

I have had lot of submissions so far, but a considerable percentage of them are superb stories written in the first person - as requested - but are more ‘stories’ than ‘confessions’.

Just to clarify, the reader needs to believe these are real confessions written by real people about an erotic experience that has been had. They still need to be well written and on the shocking side, but probably with less dialogue than you would expect in a story – instead that can be told in the narrative.



I'm taking this to mean (assuming I'm one of the writers being addressed) that my erotica is too literary to be considered good smut.

OUCH!
