Steam Romance, a publisher of romantic and erotic fiction is looking for writers! New to this genre, but not publishing, Steam is fresh and ready to take on select stories that are just as fresh…and sexy!
We are looking for:
Short stories that are between 15k-40k words. Novels that are between 50k-100k words.
We are accepting stories in almost all genres, but will give priority to stories of the following romantic fiction or erotica categories:
- Contemporary, especially stories with a modern, strong lead female character
- Urban Fantasy
- For Men
We define romance as: love stories with strong writing, developed characters, and a solid plot. Stories should have happy endings and should depict love scenes in detail.
We define erotica as: arousing stories with explicit sex scenes; generally happy stories, though not necessary to have a neat and tidy happy ending.
We are NOT looking for:
Stories that depict rape/forced seduction, implied rape, necrophilia, bestiality, pedophilia, incest, extreme violence (knife play, guns, torture, etc.), racism, sex with characters under age 18, sex scenes that involve bodily functions (e.g., golden showers, etc.)
