Shadowfire Press is seeking erotic romance submissions in all genres, all pairings with a preference for paranormal and scifi based stories and novels.

Details http://shadowfirepress.com/guidelines_01_05_2011_erom.html

We are also reading selectively in the scifi, horror, fantasy and mystery genres (mixtures of these genres is perfectly acceptable).

We do consider reprints if the book has been out of circulation for at least a year, and if you have a clear reversion of rights.

There is never a charge to the author. We edit, provide cover art, purchase ads, ISBNs and assist our authors with promotions--meaning we have an in-house promotions person who goes out and advertises your release on various sites.

We are not an 'author mill'. We sign a select few new authors each year which allows us to better help you build a readership.

We have spaces in our publication schedule open as early as May for erotic romance authors and as early as June for other genre authors.

*We define net as minus merchant services fees/3rd party fees only.

No offense, but the covers on your site look like pretty standard cut and paste jobs, and there are typos on your FAQ page. (Reader's should be Readers' since presumably the questions belong to multiple readers. Green is also misspelled as greren at one point. Oh, and I found the "word" excption on your authors' guidelines page.)

What markets do you publish your books in? (IE, Kindle, Nook, etc.) And do you publish any print books or just ebooks?

They don't sell on Amazon or offer Kindle formatting.

Which makes me wonder where and how they sell their work.

Michael, are you able to share with us some general sales figures for Shadowfire? Say, for titles that have been out for a year or more, highest number of copies sold, lowest number, and mean or median?
