Spice It Up - A Preview of September's Post

Coming up with better ways to keep the magic alive in a relationship is hard work. Some times we don't have the energy or the time to deal with keeping the romance going.

Hey, we have a job, kids, family, and responsibilities. You’re working as hard as you can to just get through the day, much less worry about an exciting sex life.

I couldn’t agree more, but it doesn’t have to be a big production. Little changes in your routine can reap rewards. Remembering to kiss your lover the moment you see them is a small task and one that shows you care.

Making the coffee, a glance to show you find them sexy, a slid of the hand over your lover’s back when they’re struggling to do something. Small touches.

Spicing it up are the little things you do which take but a moment and show that you care.

Have a fun filled day, full of love, joy and sex.

New Erotic Books from Crimson Moth


What’s a book without its cover? A bunch of words. Even the greatest of words fail in our visual world, without a wonderful cover. A catchy cover attracts readers. How many of us have picked up a book the first time, simply because of the cover. I know I have!

Crimson Moth artwork--from the genre headings on our website to our wondrous covers--is among the best to be found.

That said, here’s two of our upcoming covers. Along with the blurbs of course. So you can add them to your ‘to buy’ lists.





Releasing September 15, 2009

Fury of Fire: A Woman Scorned by Cricket Sawyer

Investigation into a fire of suspicious origin uncovers a cacophony of sinister manipulations; arson to murder. Trails as intricate as a spider’s web weave throughout the story of FURY OF FIRE and there is nothing worse than A WOMAN SCORNED that creates tension as hot as a Colorado wild fire at Thunder Ridge Mobile Home Park high up in the La Platta Mountains of Durango, Colorado.

Vampire Ride by Storm Savage

Never accept rides from strangers. Isn’t that what Mother always said? Stranded without a ride home on a stormy night, Chalina abandons rational thinking to accept help from a hotter-than-hell-looking biker. She decides a one night stand is just what she needs from this gorgeous, irresistible stranger. However, the tables turn when he breaks through the emotional walls of her heart.

Little does Chalina know she’s about to fall passionately in love with a vampire who has been summoned to lead a new motorcycle pack. Ryker gives her more than just a ride home…he takes her on a sexual journey that changes her life forever.



Thank you, Lizzie for the preview.


You are the best.

Answers from an Editor at Crimson Moth

Does the world really need another new publisher of erotic fiction? Maybe. Maybe not. However, as an imprint of well-established epublisher, Wings ePress, Inc., Crimson Moth has a successful base of operations and a knowledgeable and experienced staff. We’re not exactly new!

Already a publisher of highly sensual fiction, it was easy for Wings to take that next step. TA DAH… Crimson Moth Erotic Romances.

Anita asked me what makes Crimson Moth different from other publishers. This is a surprisingly difficult question to answer. We’re looking for great, well-told stories. These stories need to include explicit sexual encounters that titillate the readers as well as the story people.

One difference at Crimson Moth is that we join a small group of publishers with the following policy. Our tales are about one woman and one man in a monogamous, committed relationship. We acknowledge erotic tales including multiple and/or same sex partners, but don’t feel qualified to publish them at this time.

Other than that, we’re looking for HOT ROMANCE! Highly sensual stories with great characters a reader will identify with and love, Plot driven tales, filled with building passion and great sex. While romance is our primary focus, sex scenes should flow naturally with the story as the characters’ relationship grows. No sex for the sake of sex. Satisfy the reader with a happy ending--which may not be a happy ever after, but definitely the promise of one.

And how could I leave today without a couple of tips for you. Here’s a basic tip that I know you already understand. Read and follow the submission guidelines at www.crimsonmoth.com . That and your excellently written tale are the best ways to impress our editors.

Secondly--write a story with characters YOU love, who give you shivers (or more!)of delight and make you want to run out and find the lover of your dreams.

Now, that’s a successful story!

Thank you Lizzie for your inside,

Anita

More about Crimson Moth

I talked to a friend of mine over at Crimson Moth.

Here's the scoop on what they are looking for.


In the wide open and exciting world of erotic publishing, Wings ePress’ erotic imprint, Crimson Moth, features highly sensual tales of monogamous, heterosexual couples. Well-written romance is our main focus. These stories need to take the characters and our readers beyond the sensual into HOT, loving relationships. No closed doors allowed. Don’t even leave them ajar. Let the reader see, feel, experience blazing, wicked sex--then leave ‘em panting for more!

Taboos? Yep, we have ‘em, and the short list can be found on our submissions guidelines page at www.crimsonmoth.com. There you’ll also find our specific requirements for the simple submission procedure and manuscript formatting. Never forget the importance of the foreplay needed to get you manuscript whipped into shape.

So much for generalities.

We’d love to see both novellas (up to 20,000 words) and novels (45,000 words and up). Novellas will be offered in ebook only, novels in both ebook and paper. We’ll be offering titles under two categories.

Flutter: Works that are both romantic and sexually explicit. Instead of flowery language, graphic terms are used for body parts and actions. Love scenes are explicit, but the overall feeling is more sensual.

Soar: Along with the use of more explicit language, these books will take the reader on a heightened erotic experience. The romance remains between one man and one woman although these tales may contain material some find objectionable: submission, forced seductions, sex toys, and light bondage (as long as both parties are willing).

Genre-wise--we’re into just about anything. Got a hot and heavy, dark paranormal? A tickle your funny bone (and elsewhere) contemporary comedy? A titillating tale that falls somewhere in between? We want to see them all! Follow the guidelines and there’s a room for everyone at Crimson Moth.

A room with a… view.


Thanks Lizzie for your help and tune in tomorrow for more about Crimson Moth

Set on fire by Amanda, William wouldn't let the lady escape. If she wanted answers, he'd get them. As head of the Dragon Center, he had connections and nothing would stop him from capturing her heart.

Dragon Center agent, Dee Butterfield, finally has the job she's always longed for. On her first assignment, her job is to protect sculptor, Scott VanHorn. His rich dragon blood tempts her into an affair that could not only jeopardize her career but possibly her life.Determined to find out who killed his best friend, Scott poses as a struggling artist to help the Dragon Center investigate a corrupt art dealer. He has ulterior motives for requesting Dee as his protector, getting her in his bed not the least of them. However, Scott soon realizes his mistake.When the mission becomes more dangerous than either of them anticipate, Scott's black dragon blood stirs to protect Dee while hers calls for retribution.

In danger but under Jake’s protective custody, passion ignites into love in his arms. Her dreams so close to coming true crumble under a heart wrenching blow. Determined to find out why she lost her baby, Sarah sacrifices her career, Jake, and possibly her life to discover answers.
