Carnal Desires

Carnal Desires Publishing

We will offer each work of erotic fiction as an ebook, and, if the author so wishes, as a paperback.

When we open for submissions on September 1, 2007 , we will be looking for erotic novels that feature both high literary quality and supremely original story lines. Not only must vivid portrayals of sexual encounters be integral to a riveting plot featuring fascinating, well-developed characters, erotic scenes must form an essential aspect of the plot. So must romance.

We will accept submissions from both published and unpublished authors, but we will insist that all authors who submit manuscripts rigorously adhere to our submission guidelines . Authors: be sure to download the template offered at the end of the guidelines. This document will greatly assist you to format your submission as we request.

We've got our asbestos gloves ready!

Still not sure what we want? Read our books! Changeling Press is waiting... for you to turn up the heat and blow away our readers. What do you have to lose -- except your inhibitions?

DiskUs Publishing

DiskUs Publishing was created from a dream stirred by electrons in 1995, DiskUs Publishing is proud of the strides it has made since its launch in the early hours of 1996. We set out with one goal in mind...to present readers with a variety of quality fiction and non-fiction in as many formats as necessary for them to enjoy reading books in electronic bindings.

Little did we realize in the beginning that we, as a publisher, would be featured as a pioneer in the development of the epublishing industry in the likes of the Wall Street Journal, TIME magazine, Publisher's Weekly, Wired, Salon and a host of other publications. Nor, did we foresee publishing the #1 best selling ebook of 1999, the first year such rankings were kept. But we did and we have...and we continue to strive for the best and the brightest...bringing to readers the kind of entertainment and information they've come to expect from DiskUs Publishing.

Drollerie Press

Drollerie Press publishes transformative fiction in electronic and print format. We welcome stories set anywhere, anywhen, or across any genre, as long as they in some way re-imagine the themes and stories that resonate with humanity, now and through the ages.

Drollerie Press began as a haven for authors and readers who never outgrew fairytales, or vampire stories, or ghost yarns, but learned to enjoy reading adult fare as well. We're the ones who read the stories of White Corn Woman for fun, or travel the desert with Coyote. We pity the Rusalka. We fly with angels. We hear the howls of the dog who finds murdered men's bones and digs them up again.

You might characterize some of our stories as, at least in part, speculative fiction, mythic fiction, slipstream, new weird, urban fantasy, dark fantasy, paranormal, magical realism, or even horror. We hope that many of them will also be erotic, but we're more interested in good writing than multiplicity of sex scenes. Our authors use all these tools, and varied genres, to write good stories. We are currently specifically interested in stories of all lengths that look at fairytales in unique and unusual ways and in re-tellings of Native American myth.
