BELLEVUE, Wash., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SilkWords LLC, a woman-owned and operated publisher that offers high quality interactive romance and erotica, has shifted to a free-reading model on its website.
"Since our February launch, we've carefully studied our target audience," says Keri Multerer, SilkWords founder. "We believe SilkWords' business goal of growing an audience of loyal readers who are also interested in becoming part of an interactive community is best served by shifting to a model of free reading."
The site has always offered some free content to members, but to read all stories members were required to buy subscriptions or purchase individual stories. The new model, like popular sites such as Wattpad, integrates tasteful, relevant advertising into the free reading experience.
SilkWords continues its commitment to providing a high quality reading experience for fans of erotic fiction. And members who prefer an ad-free experience will soon have the option to purchase premium memberships.
"The publishing industry is changing fast," said Sharon Fisher, Tor Books author and SilkWords co-founder and editorial director. "For small publishers, I think adaptability is key. SilkWords recognizes the value of remaining flexible enough to respond to emerging opportunities."
Fifty Shades of Grey released in 2011 (with the film version due out next year), and erotic fiction continues to thrive as a genre, with popular authors struggling to release stories fast enough to satisfy reader appetites.

"SilkWords is catering to a large and growing audience," said Boyd Multerer, SilkWords development director (and founder of Microsoft's Xbox Live). "With a nimble, innovative team and a stable of popular erotic fiction authors, we're very well situated to capitalize on a trend that shows every sign of strengthening."
SilkWords LLC is the go-to source for interactive women's fiction. We offer high quality romance and erotica that allows individual readers to choose how stories proceed-always free, and from the privacy of their own homes.
