Social networking for romance readers
As I make my way through the romance publishing world, a question keeps gnawing at me, and I'd like some help sorting it out. Before I became an author, I was an avid reader. I got into paranormal and urban fantasy. I read Karen M Moning, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Laurell K. Hamilton, and Kim Harrison, to name a few. Their books contain quite steamy love scenes and one has scenes with multiple male characters having sex with a female lead (Anita Blake series, LKH). All these books are available on the bookshelves everywhere - bookstores and libraries alike.
Here's my question. Why are they NOT considered erotic paranormal romance? And what then is considered erotic romance if these authors' books aren't? I'm confused and keep having trouble identifying the heat level of my books. I usually wind up asking friends who have read them before their releases!
Please help me if you can...
