Tuesday's News and Updates

Great day to you! I'm pretty slammed right now with writing obligations, but I have some *sweet* information to pass on!

  •  ~ I have a new cover, I have a new cover ~ I'm singing, forgive me. Check it out. Below is the hot cover for my upcoming release, Bad Gone Better. I cannot wait for this one to hit the proverbial shelves! Keep your eyes peeled because excerpts (in various ratings) are coming soon...

  • Next Monday, May 14th, is my spot on Castles & Guns. I'll post a reminder, but mark your calendars. 

  • More awesome contest news: Ever wanted a chance to prove your writing talent? Changeling Press is having a contest where you could end up published with them. Details are as follows: Do you have what it takes to become a Changeling? Love to write? Love contests? Changeling's Spring Fling may be just the contest you're looking for.

    Are your characters wild and wicked, your plots hot enough to require a fire-hazard warning? If the answer is yes, Changeling wants YOU. Cyborgs, vampires, werewolves, dragon shifters, cat shifters, aliens, genetically altered alien cyborg dragon shifters... Chances are, they belong at Changeling.

    What can you win? Top entries will receive a critique by an acquiring editor at Changeling and may be considered for publication. (We won't promise -- but we have published the winners the last three years.) **Ayla jumps in here -- I was one of them last year with Soulless** Winners accepted for publication will receive one year free membership with TRS Promotions.

    Entries should be complete "Hot Flash" manuscripts of between 5000 to 7000 words, otherwise meeting the publication guidelines for Changeling Press, available at www.ChangelingPress.com (Under submission guidelines at the top of every page).

    We publish Women's Erotic Romance in the following genres: Paranormal, Dark Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Futuristic, Guilty Pleasures (Super Hot Contemporary) BDSM, and Action/Adventure. All submissions must be targeted for at least one of these Romance genres. (Open to all themes, including BBW, IR, M/F, M/M, M/F/M, M/M/F, M/M/M/F/M/M, M10... you get the picture.) While we don't demand your characters trot off to get married at the end of the book, we do ask for a HEA(Happy Ever After) or, in the case of serials, a HFN(Happy For Now).

    Please send one RTF file with your complete manuscript of no more than seven thousand words, and include a short cover letter IN THE FILE including your publishing history, if any, a short "blurb" and plot summary of no more than 500 words, including genres and themes you're targeting for this short story, and your name, pen name, and email address -- BE SURE to put your contact information IN THE FILE.

    Entries must be received by May 31st.
    Send Submissions to submissions@changelingpress.com.
    Submissions that don't meet the contest rules -- five to seven thousand words, Women's Erotic Romance, contact information and short cover letter in the file -- will be rejected. No more than two entries per author, please.
