Rose Caraway is seeking a “library” of “Hand Picked” authors who write Intelligent, Hot and Engaging Erotica. Highlighting her favorite authors and their wonderful writing talents, as well as discovering new writers and then sharing them with the world, is what Rose Caraway takes great joy in doing.
Your plot must be very well developed, rich in detail and hold the story together but not be so complex that you lose the reader. Characters need life and the eroticism must be hot, hot, hot! The most important thing is to make these stories fun; for you and the reader. Capture their imaginations with your own. Pull the readers into your head and give them the full tour. This book of stories will feature erotica from any of the following sub-categories:
HORROR, MYSTERY, ROMANCE, SCIENCE FICTION, FANTASY, WESTERN, PARANORMAL, ACTION-ADVENTURE, HISTORICAL
Within these sub-categories, I would be happy to see (but do not require), a variety of added ingredients. Feel free to add any of the following delicious spices:
MÉNAGE, KINK, ROLE PLAYING, SPANKING, BDSM, STEAM PUNK, FUTURISTIC
Rose Caraway will not accept:
Already Published Works, Underage Sex, Non-Consensual Sex, Incest, Scat or Bestiality.
This book is targeted towards hetero stories, but the editor will be delighted to consider f/f, m/m, etc., stories as well. Just remember that believable engagement must occur between characters. Be creative and write from your heart. Make the readers want to come back and read your story again!
