More About the Author
I've been married to a wonderful man for more than twenty years now. He's a senior investigator with our county sheriff's office. As a result, I know an awful lot of cops, which is one reason I love putting police procedural elements in my fiction. I also spent ten years as a reporter, which gave me a collection of war stories you would not believe.
My husband Mike and I have one son, Anthony, who is in his twenties now.

What I like best about this book is its positive outlook in general. Far too many writing books are about "don't get your hopes up, but here's some suggestions if you insist." Her approach is "Let's take a good look at what it's going to take." If you want to write erotic romance for publication, this is a definite must-read.
UPDATE: Fall '09
The book I mentioned writing after being inspired by this one has now been accepted for publication. There's the proof--the book works! Thank you, Angela.
This author writes science fiction erotic romance. It's not anything that I am interested in so I didn't relate well to the examples she gave from her previous books. I prefer classic well written romance infused with graphic sex scenes. But I found this book very informative, and think a romance writer of any genre would find this book useful.
The areas in this book I found the most useful were the sections on formatting and submitting your manuscript(spacing, text, word count, how to figure out the word count, what information needs to be on you query letter, etc.).
Which publishers she started with, information on e-books vs. print.
What romance writing groups to become a member of, how to find an agent.
Mistakes she had made along the way to becoming a popular and successful erotic romance writer.
A ton of comments and examples from her readers.
There was a great bibliography of reference books that are a must read for any aspiring author. All in all, this book is definitely worth purchasing. It makes the writing process and getting published seem attainable. I highly recommend it.
Angela Knight's Passionate Ink: A Guide to Writing Erotic Romance definitely held my interest. Each section includes examples of how she utilized the techniques she discussed and explains how they worked within the scene. It also includes reader comments about what they want and what they don't want in Erotic Romance.
If you want to write Erotic Romance this is definitely a Must Buy!
