Dear Author has stated that any contributions in excess of the amount needed for legal expenses will be donated to the Society of Professional Journalists Legal Defense Fund (

Coming Together: Pro Bono is a collection of erotic fiction to benefit the Dear Author Legal Defense Fund.

In September 2014, the popular review blog Dear Author published a post detailing issues involving Ellora’s Cave, a renowned pioneer in the genre of erotic romance.

The information provided (much of it a matter of public record) did not portray Ellora’s Cave in a favorable light.

Ellora’s Cave reacted by filing a defamation suit against Dear Author and its owner. Soon thereafter, a crowdfunding campaign was created by Smart B*tches to collect donations for the legal defense of Dear Author.
