I would like to think the title of this post is a funny double entendre...or maybe I'm just writing this too early in the morning.
Anyway, I have been going through an odd stretch of writer's block that is a combination of a strong desire to write, coupled with ideas to write about and, amazingly, the time to write, with a complete inability to write. All of metaphorical ducks are in a row, yet I'm not writing. It's almost like I'm spoiled for choice. Or lazy. Maybe, really, just lazy.
Well, here's hoping it passes and quickly.
In the meantime, I wanted to share some recent calls for submission by erotic romance publishers that might help you (and me) get our fingers moving. Typing, I meant. Geez, get your mind out of the gutter. Or in, as the case may be.
Entangled: I'm really bummed about missing this publisher's zombie call but there's a Valentine's Day theme that gives us all until the last week in November to come up with a sexy book-length story. Complete manuscripts only.
Carina Press: This publisher is always seek erotic romance as well as erotica but they also have a special call for holiday themed romance and erotic romance with a deadline in March 2013. Plenty of time to get those pencils moving! Bonus: there's also a military "home for the holidays" collection they are seeking stories for.
Ellora's Cave: They're looking for stories about bounty hunters and also expanding their Fusion line (multicultural and interracial stories). They also have a EC for Men line that was launched this year that is currently seeking submisisons.
Bonus: Forever Yours is a new digital publisher on the block which is seeking all kinds of romance, so they may certainly be worth a query.
