Etopia Press Pitch Contest with Rachel Firasek
Some of you may know that I've taken a position as an editor for Etopia Press. I can't tell you how excited I am to be working with these fantastic publishing peeps and the authors that I've already stacked up.
I have the best authors and want to add more! :)
So, with that being said, I've gained permission to do a fun pitch contest. Here's what I'm looking for. Don't be shy. These really are great people!
First and foremost, I'm looking for authors ready to begin their careers in the publishing world, established authors that can kick out books on a consistent basis, and people that like to have fun!
1. I want naughty erotica books with heart, passion, and depth. Give me stories that will make me weep, pant, and smile at the end. Got a whip and rope...or two in it? Even better! All heat levels wanted, but the darker and hotter will get my attention fastest. Any length that falls in Etopia's submission guidelines will be considered. I'll post the link in a few.
2. Romance! I want to see the love. Paranormal, contemporary, hawt heroes and fiesty heroines, you name it, I want it.
3. YA romance! Yes, I know. It's the other end of the spectrum, but I love a good YA--especially with a HEA!
As promissed, you can check out Etopia's guidlines for submissions to make sure your story fits, and it'll help when labeling your genre, here.
On to the fun!!!
