I would like to write a dark erotic romance but not really sure how. Am I making it more complicated than it really is or is it simply beauty and the beast? I find that everything is bondage and billionaires or motorcycle clubs. I feel so lost. Help!

Okay, first of all, if you want to write something Dark, this means that ALL your main characters (Hero/Heroine/Villain) must have some sort of personal issue or trauma to overcome, and the main two characters: the Hero & the Heroine MUST overcome them before the story ends. The "Stages of Grief" pattern is what you should follow to do this.

Now then, the name "Erotic Romance" is actually misleading. What an Erotic Romance actually is is "Women's Adult Pulp Fiction". This means that the Plot must be some sort of Pulp Fiction; Horror, Gothic, Suspense, Mystery, Sci-Fi Fantasy.... However the key to doing it Right is that Sex must make the plot happen.

I do have a tutorial for Writing Erotic Romances, but because the content is Adult, somewhat, I can't post it here on DA. To read it, you need to go here: All you need to write EROTIC ROMANCE  Read that to give you a general idea of how the genre actually works.

one quick question. Do you have anything for dystopian or science fiction stories?

A tutorial for Dystopian stories?
 -- Just follow the Law of Sci-F and make the world solid but crap-tastic.

It doesn't hurt to also make the main character 1) someone wither low in status who is trying to climb in status, preferably the worst way possible, (criminal activity), or make them 2) someone very ordinary that has no idea how bad their world is until they loose everything and are forced to survive.

Remember:
 -- Utopia: The world is Too Perfect (Star Trek)
 -- Dystopia: The world is too Imperfect. (Blade Runner)

Law of Sci-Fi:
 -- "If you can take the Science out of the Science-Fiction and still have a viable story, you did it WRONG."

I love your guides and read them often. I know you kind of hinted on how to make a living as a writer in your writing for profit rant. I was wondering if you could write a guide on how to make money now as a writer, or recommend some resources. I want to quit my day job and I too will write anything! Maybe a guide on how to become a mercenary writer officially. Again I love your guides! And I really appreciate everything you do!
