Many thanks to Sedonia Guillone for pointing this out, and to Alex Beecroft for the graphic.
Can you believe it? I’m amazed – and I couldn’t be more thrilled.
HISTORICAL NOVEL SUBMISSION CALL
Historically-based Single Author Erotic Novel or Anthology
Deadline: December 30, 2008
STARbooks Press is looking for an historically-based single author novel or anthology to fill out our 2009-2010 catalog season. Choose a time period and a specific place or event to base your novel or anthology. If you choose to write an anthology, all the stories and characters should tie in together throughout the book. Give the reader a reason to continue reading!
When you choose your time period, be sure to do your research and be knowledgeable about that period in history. Be serious about your work as this is not just about the sex, but the historical themes as well. We have an editor who is a former history teacher, and submissions will be scrutinized to be sure they are not only erotic but accurate!
If you would like to see an example of what we seek, check out Erotic Tales of the Knights Templar by Jay Starre and published by STARbooks Press. Not only is this book historically accurate, the characters are well-developed, the theme is carried throughout the book as the stories are tied in together, and the sex is hot.
Submit your query to firstname.lastname@example.org and YOU MUST include the following:
– In the body of the email, include a brief summary of your book and your publishing history/bio.
– Include the first few chapters of your book as an attachment.
If your query is accepted, a STARbooks Press editor will be in contact with you about submitting the complete work. Be sure your manuscript has been proofed and edited; we do not accept single author titles that require extensive editing.
Sloppy or poorly written manuscripts will NOT be considered, replied to, or acknowledged!
We expect submissions to be fully edited and ready for press.
