Better Sex Fiction Contest Examples

The Movie By A.J. Riley (Last Year's Winning Story)

What do I write?
We've had a lot of questions about what to write for our fiction contest. The Movie by A. J. Riley was our winner last year.

Suggested Length
Last year's Better Sex Erotic Fiction Contest winning story was just over 1000 words. We had great 3,000 word stories too. As a general rule, stories should be in the 1,000 to 2,000 word range. Writing quality is really the issue. We read a lot of stories and length isn't something we care about or look for. But, this is a contest. As much as I would like to say write 10,000 words I know that a story of that length would have a difficult time because our readers are time compressed as we all are these days. Work in the 1,000 to 2,000 word range unless your story demands more. If you grab your readers they will take the entire ride with you.

Good Luck. Email quesitons to Martin at msmith@bettersex.com.
