Vivienne, 9 posts and one reply with identical content is considered spamming. I suggest that you delete all but the most appropriate one or two before you attract some outside moderation.

Right. Thanks, veinglory. I suppose I just didn't think of it.

Going to do it now...

Thanks for understanding.

If you are interested in any particular type of submission I encourage to you discuss it here. I find myself somewhat bewildered the by number of new publishers and having something specific to go on is a great help. Otherwise I tend to stay with the onesI already know, conservative wee beasty than I am.

Ummmm...Typos on the website do not make a very favorable impression....menage a trios...purpose prose

Also your "About us" doesn't say much in terms of owners' experience qualifications etc.

Purpose prose was my favorite.

Thank you so much, Barbara, for pointing out our mistakes. :) We've already made the necessary corrections and will be going through everything with a fine-toothed comb again. Starting a new business always have its hiccups, and I feel that we're so fortunate as to have people like you to help us be better.

Veinglory, to answer your question, StarDust Press is looking for erotic romance in all genres. Vamps, weres, wizards, witches, they're all welcome! In terms of heat level, the hotter the better, of course! ;) We'd like to see some BDSM, alternate lifestyles and sexualities too. Our minimum word count is 15,000 words. We pay royalties of 40% of cover price.

Does anyone have any more questions? We're also trying to gather together a list of faq. Thanks!

Oh, I forgot to add that we would be posting the bios of the people behind the company as well, so that all of you can get to know us better. ;)

I think it's great to leave the field open but I was wondering if there was anything specific you might like to see. Otherwise I am still left with a field of 20-30 erotic romance epublishers and no clear way to see which is a best fit for me (especially for those without a backlist?)
