Finding your favorite eBook romance and erotica from small press and independent publishers on the Kindle is still hit and miss. Some make nearly all their titles available in Kindle format, while others only a few.

Often a time lag exists between when a book is available from a publisher’s website, or other eBook retailer such as All Romance, My Bookstore and More, or Books on Board, and when it becomes available for the Kindle.

Here are the results of several searches I conducted recently at the Kindle Store on Amazon.com.  I entered a publisher’s company name into the Kindle Store search box and then sorted available titles by date of publication. Search engines are far from infallible, so if you have additional information about these publishers and the Kindle, please feel free to comment!
