SEX SELLS: Writing the Sultry Romance
Speakers: Cris Anson & Rose C. Carole

After fifteen years of writing and rejection, Cris Anson heard an Ellora’s Cave editor speak at an NJRW meeting. She promptly wrote a story that pulled no punches, and in January 2005, EC published her first erotic romance. The company released a dozen of Cris’ novels, novellas, and short stories before its demise. She is now self-publishing these stories.
In 2012, Cris attended a BDSM Writers Workshop hosted by Dr. Charley Ferrer, where she discovered she was already writing BDSM! She also met her critique partner and dear friend, Rose C. Carole, and together they wrote and published TRUST BETRAYED and are halfway through its sequel. Other books include DISCOVERING BECCA, TAMING THE ROGUE, and DROPPING THE VEILS.

Rose C. Carole has been an avid reader all her life and pursued that obsession into the publishing business, where she worked in both production and editorial for books and magazines. When her son went off to college, she decided to fulfill another dream and went to culinary school, thinking she would write a cookbook but loving the cooking so much she became a caterer. But her love for books is ever present, and she finally decided it was time to reconnect with her own creative muse and write the kinds of books she enjoys reading. She hopes her readers enjoy them as well. Rose is now an award-winning author. She had the Best Book of the Year 2015 from the BDSM Writers Con; was a finalist in the Passionate Plume Contest Best BDSM Book 2018 from Passionate Ink, a division of Romance Writers of America, was a finalist in the Beverley Awards for Best Erotic Romance from Colorado Romance Writers and was named Top 10 Erotic Author by AMR Author Promotions.
