    Basically, no on-page sex.

    You mean one-page? Okay, okay. I think I understand it now.

    Sweet means that the sex takes place behind closed doors -- as in the reader isn't getting a blow by blow -- pun intended

    It seems that menage and interracial have been doing best, but recently a contemporary has made it to several best-seller lists.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm quite happy with Evernight.

    How many rounds of consideration do they have?

    Low pay for editors

    I'm trying to find a position as an editor, so I applied to Evernight because the covers looked decent and the stories didn't seem bad. A few days later I got a brief response where I was told, "Rates are $1.50 per 1000 words edited." This seems a bit low and I checked with other authors and editors I know. They also believe this is not a fair amount to pay an editor.

    Does anyone have any experience with Evernight's editing department or pay rates for editors?

    I can't speak on who has subbed from here, but I do know they have a lot of subs for it.

    Wow. Really? Do they say how many stories they usually pick for their anthologies, or does it vary from anthology to anthology? I understand if you can't tell me for whatever reason, I'm just curious.

    I can confirm that all the slots have not been filled as of yet.

    The number of slots does vary from antho to antho.

    I have an IR paranormal --under another penname-- (it's fluffy, not gritty) with them, my first e-published work.

    I am pleased with their covers and their editing, and my sales have been constant since the book's release in late October. They pay on time and have had no issues with them. I would submit to them again.

    Yeah, I heard they have a lot of IR. That's one of the reasons why I'm kind of interested in them; I write IR.

    I've sold them stories for 2 anthologies, 1 contemporary novella, 1 novelette and 1 short story with absolutely no problems at all thus far. Lightning speed responsiveness.

    I have a Naughty Fairy Tale due to release 6/26. I just subbed it around mid-may so extremely fast turn around for that. That line has been doing very well for them, so they go extra fast on them. My head is still spinning. 9 hours between submission and acceptance on this one with word count for the line at 15k to 35k'ish

    I just sold a story for their brand new Romance on the Go line for August 2012 release. Works are sold as stand-alones but the word counts are only 8000 to 15k, so short story writers take notice.

    Like AuburnAssassin, I've also got a Romance on the Go coming out in a few days.

    I'm still very happy with Evernight. Every cover they've done has wowed me to giddiness. I don't think I've once had an issue with it. Most of the authors I've met along the way are fab people, always willing to lend a hand for guest blogging for new releases.
