Elegant Erotica: Not romance.
Not Penthouse. But a gentle blend
between the two.
We haven't had a new genre on the blog since "Cyberbilly" back in July, so I was excited to make this post, even if it is 1 a.m.
This genre was coined by Verna Dreisbach at a speakers' dinner. (Verna is the founder of Dreisbach Literary, and I posted about her not long ago.)
As far as what constitutes the genre, I can't give you much more than the short explanation above. Evidently, it's material that has more juicy bits than romance, but isn't pornography. For some reason, I think of British erotica or something like that - naughty writing, but proper at the same time.
