Just a quick post to say how much I really love epublishers. I mean, what's not to love? They accept electronic submissions meaning I save a bundle on stamps and envelopes and, if they accept my manuscript, it's usually out within a year.

So let's hear it for epublishers. And by way of celebrating them, here's a list of some of the more well known ones including the ones I've been published by.

Amira Press - And check out their blog for info about new releases -

Cobblestone Press - You can learn a lot more about them here -

Ellora's Cave - This is their sister site -

Samhain Publishing - And their blog -

New Concepts Publishing -

Liquid Silver - Read their blog here -

Loose Id -

Ravenous Romance -

And I've already mentioned Carina Press in another post.

Excerpt from For the Love of the Courtesan

Below is an excerpt from my manuscript, For the Love of the Courtesan, currently seeking a home with an epublisher.

The loud, firm knock on the door resounded through the atrium startling the yellow songbirds in their cage. They flew off their perch, chirping, their wings fluttering. Chloe’s own heart leapt though she had been expecting this summons, had been waiting for it. Belthus, her longest-serving slave, emerged from a side room but she waved him away and hurried to the heavy door. She knew who it was even before she opened it. A tall, slender man the color of burnt almonds stood in front of her. It was the third time he’d come. The third Monday morning in as many weeks.

more of Ovid's advice to lovers

"I advise you, if it is feasible, to have two mistresses at the same time, for thus one passion shall moderate the other. Rivers lose their force when they split and branch off, and the fury of a fire can be disminished by making several small ones out of a big one...If you have been so foolish as to retain the affections of but a single mistress, lose no time to find another immediately....If you are troubled to find them, read my Art of Love. Voyage out upon the sea of Love courageously and soon your ship will be laden with beautiful wenches." Ovid, The Art of Love
