Ravenous Romance

Hollan Publishing, Inc. principals Holly Schmidt and Allan Penn have joined forces with literary agent Lori Perkins to form *Literary Partners Group, Inc., which has announced the launch of, an online publishing company.  Ravenous Romance publishes daily novel-length erotic romances, as well as lunchtime "Hot Fling" short stories in e-book and downloadable MP3 format. 
Recognizing the shrinking margins and increasing obsolescence of print publishing in today's market, LPG has leveraged their combined expertise and experience in the growing erotica and romance categories, and is taking them to the rapidly-expanding digital market. E-books and audiobooks are two of the strongest growth areas in publishing, as readers have begun to embrace the convenience of downloading material to smart phones, iPods, PDAs, personal computers, and various new-to-market electronic readers such as the Amazon Kindle and the Sony Reader.
Ravenous Romance will offer erotic romance stories with strong plots and character development, but with steamy sex scenes and explicit descriptions of sexual encounters.  The stories will feature strong, passionate heroines and plots that express a broad range of fantasies.  Ravenous Romance will be a destination site for women, with erotica that celebrates female sexuality, and strong Web 2.0 community-building features.
Call for Submissions

We are currently looking for new voices and story-tellers to write erotic romance for our newly established company. Every book must be a "dirty" romance, with a great love story and passionate, explicit sex. While our stories do not have to end happily- ever- after, we want the fantasy of "happy-for-now" in every ending.

All our stories must have a beginning, middle and end and characters with whom our readers can identify. We're looking for great storytelling, with interesting plots and carefully-crafted writing. Sex scenes are important, but they should be used to move the plot forward and to develop the characters as integral parts of the story. The book should stand alone as a great story without the sex scenes, but the sex scenes should serve to make the story better and the characters more interesting.

We prefer to promote safe sex, unless it conflicts with a fantasy element in the story (e.g. time period or characters that make condoms irrelevant, like the Middle Ages and werewolves, respectively) or the author has other good reasons to leave condoms out (e.g. it's in keeping with the characters' other behavior).

Our novels run approximately 50,000 words or 200 pages, no exceptions.

Our short stories run between 10 and 25 pages or between 2,500 and 6,250 words.

Please read our guidelines below before submitting a query, proposal, or short story:
