January 2017 update

Happy New Year! I'm starting off the year with a book tour for my latest anthology, Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 2. I'll be doing readings January 31 at Skylight Books in Los Angeles, February 9 at sex toy store Sugar in Baltimore, February 11 at Bluestockings bookstore in NYC and a fun Galentine's Day panel all about women, writing and erotica on February 13 at WORD in Jersey City. Get all the details on my events page or at the tour page. I hope you can make it and even if you can't, I'd appreciate you spreading the word to friends in the area. These will probably be my only live events this year and I can't wait to connect with readers and hear my authors in person.

Book tour-2

I'm getting ready for 2017, when I'll be doing readings for my upcoming anthology Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 2, which features many authors from around the world and their very sexy stories. On January 29 from 4-6 pm I'll be teaching my Erotica Writing 101 workshop at the wonderful Los Angeles area romance bookstore The Ripped Bodice, which has a huge erotica section. That class is limited to 20 people, so if you're interested, sign up now.

I also launched the website, where you can learn about my erotic writing critique service, if you're looking for personalized feedback and advice on submissions, publishing, building your author brand, social media and more. Visit the Work With Me section for more information.


My next LitReactor Between the Sheets online erotica writing class runs February 7-March 7, 2017, and is going to be my final one, due to other time commitments on my part. I've loved building a wonderful community through the class and seeing my students write their hearts out, and I hope you'll join us for this last class. It's expected to sell out, so register early if you're interested. This will be my ninth time teaching this exciting class, which has drawn students from around the world and yielded a lot of amazing erotica, including many stories that were started in class and are now published! If you want to spend four weeks devoting yourself to your erotica, learning about what makes a short story click, where to get inspiration, including from unlikely sources, how to write outside your comfort zone and what erotica editors, publishers and literary agents are looking for right now, this is the class for you. This class runs for four weeks and registration opens shortly.

The class features weekly lectures, assignments and critiques, plus resources on pen names, author branding, submitting your work and more. You'll also get over a dozen exclusive to the class Q&As with erotica writing professionals, including publishers, editors, agents and authors such as Tiffany Reisz, Charlotte Stein, Cecilia Tan and Rebekah Weatherspoon. Questions about the class? Email me at rachelkramerbussel at with "LitReactor" in the subject line. Class is limited to 16 students. You participate on your own schedule, from anywhere in the world, using any name you'd like (so you can stay anonymous if you want to).
