As sexy as it is smart, Naughty Books examines the steamy world of erotic romance, following three self-published authors who go from living at the margins to making millions by transforming their fantasies into best-selling fiction—and wrestling with the stark realities of what comes after sudden success.

At its heart, Austen Rachlis’ (Loop Planes, 2011 Cinequest) film is about finding what each of us loves and not being ashamed of it. The stories and people she reveals resonate profoundly as she celebrates women who are bold, intelligent, artistic, savvy, and independent. The popularity of the romance novel was always taboo, but not anymore, and Naughty Books speaks volumes about women in this country and around the world.

Narrators: Aimee Garcia (Dexter, Lucifer), Allison Tolman (Emergence, Fargo), Aisha Tyler (Criminal Minds, Archer).
