Please don't be shy. Speak up. This blog is ultimately for you. Let us know what you would like know from your editors. And if you are not yet contracted with TWRP, please feel free to join in the conversations. Perhaps something you see here will give you the knowledge and or motivation to submit your heart's work.
I also would like to tell you we are looking for submissions. We would love some spicy and very unique darker characters. Toss the run of the mill vamp, were, demon. Give us the hottest heros, most vibrant heroines and stories outside the coffin and dog runs if you know what I mean:) Let your imaginations run wild and free. Give us the unique, the unwritten, the untried. WE WANT DIFFERENT!
Oh and by the way, if your story is not so spicy--not so up close and personal with the love scenes--that is fine too. We don't mind closed doors, but we do like to allow our imaginations to run so we do require some sort of sensuality as our creatures tend to run on the lustful side of the heart meter:)
More about submissions...
Speaking of which, or perhaps we might say witch. We do have a call out as noted below and wait patiently amongst the darker edges of the garden's forest--yes, you've guessed it among the ancient tombstones to see what you will come up with. Take a look at the below call out and guidelines. We would love to see what you all can do with them.
Special Call for Submissions
Shades of Black: Grave Distinction
The Wild Rose Press’s Black Rose Imprint is looking for dark romance stories set in or around old cemeteries (these can be real or fictional). Perhaps a graveyard at an old manor house or mansion. We’re looking for dark, paranormal ambiance. Send a shiver up our spine as you weave a tale of romance.
Stories should revolve around the graveyard and should incorporate dark creatures of the night. Shifters, vamps, demons, incubuses, succubuses, gargoyles, dark angels, witches, warlocks, or even evil ghosts. Bring those grave markers or statuary to life.
Mainstream dark and urban paranormal is welcome as well. Please keep in mind we do not accept horror here at TWRP as yet.
Stories should target 8-40K words preferably however, longer works up to 85K will be accepted.
An aside: Does anyone know the name of the cemetary depicted in the above picture? And where is it located?
Thank you for joining us! Please don't go to far as the next few weeks our editors will be posting their pet peeves so I am certainly sure you don't want to miss that.
