Send me your good news!

I’m currently putting together a reoccuring feature, which will list authors’ recent eBook sales to publishers of romance and erotica. Every subgenre and length, from short story to novel, is welcome, just as long as the eBook sale includes strong romance elements.

Here’s the information that will be reported for each sale:

  1. Author’s name or pen name (whichever will appear on the book)
  2. Title of work
  3. Subgenre
  4. Length
  5. Publisher
  6. Release date (if known, tentative dates are okay)
  7. Description of the book. This should be a short logline of the premise or plot, one to two sentences max.

Email me with your information and I’ll add it to the next post. Note: Your eBook must be under contract to a publisher in order to be included in the listing. Sorry, no self-published books.

I’m not certain how often the feature will run. That’s up to you. I’d love it if this could be reported on a weekly basis, so if you know someone with a recent sale (within the last two months), nudge them to send the news my way!
