Well, here’s a chance! I’m putting together my first anthology! XoXo publishing has agreed to release “Evernight: Romance in a World of Darkness” and I want you to be a part of it! “Evernight” will be a paranormal romance anthology about the things that go bump in the night struggling to find their happily ever after.

Relationships must be heterosexual in nature. Though bi-sexuality is allowed, the HEA couple must be hetero. This is going to be an erotic anthology with a dark/gothic them. The main character/characters must go through some tragedy or strife, must overcome something in order for them to have their HEA. Submissions should be no longer than 6k words and must be no shorter than 4,500 words.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, August 1st. Please send submissions to allisoncassatta@gmail.com. Once I receive your submission, you will get a verification email. If your submission is approved, you will get an acceptance email from me and the standard legal emails from a representative of XoXo Publishing.

Here is the draft introduction:

As children, we feared the boogeyman. Our parents comforted us when the monster under the bed or in the dark depths of our slightly opened closet threatened our safety. We cried when those evil creatures invaded our nightmares and stole us from peaceful sleep, but what if those monsters truly existed? What if they lived in a world not unlike our own, where all they wanted was the same basic needs that every human being spends their lives searching for? What if the things that go bump in the night only wanted to be loved?

In the following stories, you will read about vampires and werewolves and demons and monsters of all kinds overcoming some of the most difficult hurdles simply to find their one true love, to find their happiness. You’ll read of heated, salacious trysts beneath the moonlight and of lovers doomed before they even have a chance to find the one person who completes their soul.

Join us as we wander through a dark world where nothing is what it seems, where rainbows after a storm are a rare miracle, where the boogeyman captures your heart and fulfils your sweetest dreams.

When Presley Howard loses his job and his lover of five years, control of his life is gone. His daily routine is thrown into disarray, bringing him close to a nervous breakdown.

Dr. Erik Daniels hasn't had it easy. He lost love and fought addiction to get where he is, one of the best substance abuse counselors people with no money and no insurance can get.

Everything seems to be on the right track until Angel, a heroine addicted male prostitute, and the kid's lover happen to cross his path.

NEW RELEASES


"Chief of Thrones" Released May 3rd!
Hetero Romance Novella - Ebook





What's romance without a kinky little angel? Warning, this is a hetero romance with a few menage scenes. I gave it a heat level of 4 out of 5.

Cameal only wants to feel the touch of a woman’s body against his. He only wants to feel… something, but for the Chief of Thrones—one of heaven’s most powerful Ophanim—any form of earthly desire is against the rules. For thirteen centuries, that rule wasn’t a problem. Then Uriel introduced him to life on earth and that’s when Cam discovered his addiction to women. But his earthly partners never fully sated him and it wasn’t until God delivered his punishment that he fully understood why.

It takes finding the raven-haired beauty the angels on earth call “Mary” to make the Chief of Thrones realize what he truly wants. Now he has to decide what he’s willing to sacrifice to finally feel whole. Will he endure excruciating torture to forget her or will he risk their lives to have her?
