A Big FAT No!

Yup, that's right after all my angst and work and revisions, TWRP gave me their decision last week concerning my resubmission of Claiming Her Cowboy. It was a very nice... brush off. She basically told me that even after I had made the revisions she suggested, and that the story was so much stronger and the conflict was great, that even after all that it just wasn't a good fit for their line. Which, while it sucks, it doesn't. They did in fact tell me that they "enjoyed your writing" and that I would "make it in the publishing industry" which could be platitudes but they made me feel better. Yanno?

So, I'm looking at submissions guidelines for the following pubs:

Respendance Books
Samhain (because Mysti said I should)
and I'm looking through some others.

Anyone got any suggestions for ePublishers I should submit to? You don't want to go someplace that doesn't have a good reputaction, yanno? Any suggestions?

Please try Noble Romance Publishing...they are a new publisher but are looking for new talent...they are also more lenient with story lines...I believe the only requirement is that it be a romance of the erotic nature.

I hope that helps. :)
Please be sure to let us know how you make out.

Happy Reading!!!

Samhain is excellent. Have you tried Harlequin? Also Loose Id... that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Good luck!

You could send it to me over at Eternal Press. I do their acquisitions. Guides can be found on their website at http://eternalpress.ca.

How about Freya's Bower? They take all heat levels of romance from sweet to uber-erotic.

Resplendence Publishing is pretty well filled up for the next publication year, but they are taking open submissions for short erotic stories to get your foot in the door.

If you have a short hot story that you want to sell, Ellora's Cave is always looking for well-written, erotic romance, shape shifters, etc.
