Author News-- Open Submission Calls and Free Promo on Coffee Time Romance

Open Promo - Author Excerpt Day

Coffee Time Romance is dedicating the 20th of every month to author excerpts. Whether a new release, an upcoming release, or an oldie but goodie, this is an opportunity to excite your fans. 

The rules are easy. Excerpt Day is for published works only. 

This is not a day for contests. Each author is limited to one excerpt. You can include a blurb, bio, and cover, but the entire post can be no more than 750 words. 

If you're already registered with the CTR blog, you're good to go. If not, drop Bonnie a line  and she'll get you going. Happy Excerpt Day!

Decadent Publishing 

A special call out for BDSM 1Night Stand Series stories.  Here's the scoop on it:  

1Night Stand dates have reached new levels of kink with the opening of a new BDSM underground resort club in Las Vegas. 

With every luxury and amenity, gorgeous pools, well-equipped dungeons, the finest in leather and steel, and devices to delight, the Carnivore Club is ready to serve some of Madame Eve's clients. Suites are available.

We are looking for stories in the BDSM genre that meet the requirements of the 1Night Stand series. While stories need not take place at the resort, consider the facilities available. We are sure your characters will have the time of their lives. 

Stories should be between 15-20k and are due Oct 1, 2014 for release early in 2015. However they accept submissions all year round.

1Night Stand series details are available on the 1NS blog, 

Contact Valerie Mann ( or 

Kate Richards ( with any questions.

Decadent Publishing invites you to join the Black Hills Wolves pack. Dawn has come to Los Lobos and a nearly decimated wolf pack has found its feet again. Drew Tao has ousted his father, the Alpha, reclaimed his mate, and is determined to make things better than they ever were before.

Length—18,000-30,000 words
Heat Level—3-5

What we’re looking for:

I. These are multi-authored shared world stories. All authors are invited, even encouraged to use already created characters from other stories as long as the characters stay true to the world and the characterizations given to the character by the original author.

II. All authors are required to use, at some point, Gee the Were-Bear bartender in their story.

III. This is a shifter series, so at least one of the main characters should shift at least once in the story.

IV. All stories should have a HEA or HFN ending.

V. While the primary story focus is the wolf-shifter genre, a mixed genre story is welcome, including but not limited to: contemporary, suspense, paranormal, time travel, thriller, military, and new adult.

VI. Please email to receive the official copy of the series bible. Since the bible is always changing, please check back more than once, especially if it takes you a long time to write your story.

VII. Questions? Email
