We are an electronic publisher of sensual & erotic romance and short story erotica seeking creative storytelling and original style. Because we at Cobblestone Press are selective about what we accept, we are looking for authors to set the standard of writing for this press; authors that show extraordinary ability to weave tales of romance through strong, unforgettable characters, plots that twist and turn with layers of conflict and emotion, and a style that sets them apart from other writers in the market.
Cobblestone Press is a full service publisher. There are NO fees for the author at any point during our publication process. Your book will be edited, and cover art will be provided.
Royalty rate is 35% of the cover price and will be paid on a monthly basis. We currently request electronic and audio rights. Print on Demand rights are contracted separately based on length and sales.
We publish sensual & erotic romance stories and short story erotica. All sexually active characters in the manuscript must be at least 18 no matter the time period.
Sensual romance stories are what “romance” is all about. These love stories should have strong plots, fully developed characters, open-door love scenes, and a Happily Ever After ending. Must be at least 20,000 words.
Erotic romance stories are tales of love with an erotic flavor. They have all of the same elements found in sensual romances, but must use explicit, adult-oriented language when describing the sexual elements within the story.
Erotica short stories are all about arousing the reader. These vignettes must have open-door sex scenes using explicit, adult-oriented language. These short stories are not necessarily romances, so a Happily Ever After ending is not required, but a “Happy for Now” is preferred.
