CORRECTED UPDATED POST…

This morning Samhain Publishing sent out a tweet asking for general cyberpunk and steampunk romance submissions, hinting that there would be an open call for anthology submissions in the future. Rather than one anthology, I’ve just learned that there will be two, one each for steampunk and cyberpunk.

Sasha Knight, Senior Editor at Samhain, hopes to have the new guidelines up soon, those for the steampunk anthology posted first, with cyberpunk to follow.

In the meantime, check out the publisher’s submission guidelines page for the skinny on their Angels and Demons, and Red Hot Fairy Tale anthologies.

Discovered some goodies this morning while putting together the week’s bestseller lists. Two recently added free reads for the Kindle on Amazon.com.

AccordingToJaneAccording to Jane by Marilyn Bryant

Publisher: Kensington
Subgenre: Contemporary Paranormal-ish, Jane Austen-inspired tale
Length: Novel
Formats: Kindle, iPhone, iPod

In Marilyn Brant’s smart, wildly inventive debut, one woman in search of herself receives advice from the ultimate expert in matters of the heart. . .

It begins one day in sophomore English class, just as Ellie Barnett’s teacher is assigning Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. From nowhere comes a quiet “tsk” of displeasure. The target: Sam Blaine, the cute bad boy who’s teasing Ellie mercilessly, just as he has since kindergarten. Entirely unbidden, as Jane might say, the author’s ghost has taken up residence in Ellie’s mind, and seems determined to stay there.

Jane’s wise and witty advice guides Ellie through the hell of adolescence and beyond, serving as the voice she trusts, usually far more than her own. Years and boyfriends come and go–sometimes a little too quickly, sometimes not nearly fast enough. But Jane’s counsel is constant, and on the subject of Sam, quite insistent. Stay away, Jane demands. He is your Mr. Wickham.

Still, everyone has something to learn about love–perhaps even Jane herself. And lately, the voice in Ellie’s head is being drowned out by another, urging her to look beyond everything she thought she knew and seek out her very own, very unexpected, happy ending. . .

A virgin sacrifice, a not-so ravening dragon and a happy ever after.

Selected as the virgin sacrifice to the ravening dragon, Myfanwy awaits as Arragh, the fiery Dragon of Calder Bala, approaches across the sacred grove.

But Arragh comes not to destroy. Instead he carries Myfanwy off to his domain in the far mountains, and a fate far, far better than death.

Heart of the Raven by J.C. Wilder

Sold into slavery to an Overseer of the Realm, Dani is determined to win her freedom and make sure her heart is possessed by no man.

For Haaken, time is running out. A family curse already condemns him to the form of the Raven and when he can find the one woman meant for him, only then will he be free.

Too bad for both of them that this woman is determined to belong to no one…

Description: When Halle Brooks’ life in the present ends following a car crash, she is catapulted back in time to 1863. According to her Spirit Guide, Halle’s presence in the past will bring about justice for a missing woman to whom Halle bears an uncanny resemblance. Soon after arriving, Halle is kidnapped by the notorious outlaw, Antonio Whitehorse.

Before abducting the beautiful, yet oddball woman whose likeness appears on a reward poster, half-Navajo Antonio Whitehorse had only two concerns: saving The People from starvation and incarceration, and avenging the death of his family. Now he has a third–the captive who’s stolen his heart. She claims she’s from the future–and that she knows the chilling fate awaiting them all.

With the U.S. Calvary in pursuit of a fugitive Whitehorse, and a murderer poised to take revenge on Halle, passions and cultures collide in this fast-paced, sweeping tale of love and survival.

Who will survive and will love find a way to keep them together forever?
