An erotica journey – John Cleve

by Parker Dupris



I came across this article about the man behind John Cleve, noted author of erotica. It’s a great story – basically the guy reads some erotica one day, decides he can do better, and then over the next 25 years redefines the entire genre, arguably raising the bar everywhere.

He saw an opportunity. His kid needed braces. He was unhappy with his current gig. So he changed his life, and made where his income came from much more about something he could immerse himself in.

Overall, a great story. I also like the lessons he has for any erotica author in the value of series work. I haven’t read any of his work, but I’m now looking for Kindle versions…
