RED MOON ROMANCE (5/15/14)
NEW IMPRINT OF WORLD WEAVER PRESS
OPENS TO 2014 SUBMISSIONS
Alpena, MI (May 15, 2014) – World Weaver Press (Eileen Wiedbrauk, Editor-in-Chief) has announced the launch of their new imprint, Red Moon Romance, with the opening of 2014 submissions today, Thursday, May 15, 2014.
“Red Moon’s been our baby for a while now,” commented Wiedbrauk. “Truth be told, we started planning Red Moon long before we launched World Weaver Press, our fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction publishing house. We love our World Weaver Press titles, authors, and readers; we’re inordinately proud of what we’ve accomplished in two short years. Now we’re ready to see our original, romance-centric concept come to fruition, to papers and pixels, and to hot steamy love stories!”
Red Moon Romance is now accepting submissions to three big, sexy anthologies Too Alpha to Handle, Sexy Secret Santa, and Demons, Imps, and Incubi. For full submission guidelines and details, visit: www.redmoonromance.com/submit.
Too Alpha to Handle: He’s so alpha she can’t stand him . . . but oh, does she want him. Strong Alpha Males — whether they’re CEOs, Doms, or leaders of the local werewolf pack — make our blood race with their sexy confidence, take-charge attitudes, and protective instincts. We’re looking for feisty heroines; give us a heroine who wants to slap that smug alpha-male smile right off his face almost as much as she wants to see him naked. Take your own notion of \”too alpha to handle\” and apply liberally!
Sexy Secret Santa: The joy of discovery . . . the delight of unwrapping. Wouldn’t your office holiday party be so much better if your secret santa gift involved unwrapping six-pack abs? We’re looking for sensual and erotic romances that encapsulate end-of-year holidays and the revealing of a secret: secret gift givers, secret identities, revealing secret crushes, secret yearnings, acting on secret desires (because if you can’t say it at Christmas, when can you?), long-held secrets about high school sweethearts or divided lovers that can bring them back together, seductive strangers, blindfolds, family secrets, secret magic lovers who appear only one night of the year… be creative! Be sexy!
Demons, Imps, and Incubi: Bad boys who go bump in the night. Is a demon’s agenda always demonic? Can he be redeemed? Or does being bad feel good? Long ago, imps were more mischievous and playful — naughty, perhaps? — and our perception of them has grown more sinister over the centuries. Incubi crave sex, but for what purpose? We at Red Moon won’t further define what makes a demon/imp/incubus — we want to read your stories that answer these questions! — so if you tell us an imp is a six-foot tall, protective, sexy creature made of smoke and shadows, then we completely agree: that sexy beast is definitely an imp. And so is the next sexy beast, and this next one just happens to be horned and horny. Seduce us. Ensnare us. Set us aflame.
Red Moon believes in sexy romance. We believe reading should be fun. We believe that at their core, romances are relationship stories, and that erotic romances are relationship stories with orgasms in them, not stories about orgasms. We believe our readers deserve whatever fiction incites their passions. We believe that a woman should never be judged or shamed for what she reads. We believe in giving a woman what she wants. Hot romance, it’s what we do.
World Weaver Press is a publisher of fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction, dedicated to producing quality works. We believe in great storytelling.
