Elizabeth | 6 comments Coffee and Cream Publishing, C&C, is dedicated to interracial and multicultural romances of all genres. We believe that interracial and diverse cultural romances is an under-represented market.

C&C will focus on quality material and is seeking stories in a wide spectrum from lightly sensual to romance erotica.

Proposals submission guidelines can be found at

Hi Elizabeth and welcome to the group!

If I may, I'd like to ask some questions on behalf of any writers who may be curious about submitting.

*Have you already signed any authors as of yet?

*Will authors be able to email you for a sample contract just to see what rights are bought and what terms the company will be purchasing from the author?

*Will we be able to see a sample of the book cover art in the store on Sept 25th?

*Does Coffee and Cream Publishing have a marketing plan in mind for it's authors or will it be up to the authors to primarily promote themselves?

*Will readers and authors be able to follow the company on any social networking sites (like Facebook and Twitter) just in case they'd like to see what works will be offered?

Thanks in advance. It's great to see a new publisher looking for IR works in different genres! :-)

Elizabeth | 6 comments Hi Rae and all the writers and readers,

I am so glad to have found such an active group that loves interracial romance as much I do.

Coffee and Cream Publishing is a start-up and we are actively and aggressively accepting query letters.

Your questions are greatly appreciated and we are adding our Facebook page to the web site and establishing a Twitter feed. We have an email list for authors that includes writing tips, publishing advice, and others news (please let me know if you want to be added).

We have created an Art Cover questionnaire for authors to incorporate the author’s vision to choose a cover that is specific to each title. I like your suggestion of posting samples and we’ll try to incorporate that into the site.

Understanding contractual details is very important to both writer and publisher. Author’s rights, terms, and royalties are part of the negotiation before the contract is drawn. Because all writers have individual needs and strong point of interest, each contract is customized.

C&C Publishing’s primary tasks are to package, edit, distribute, and promote all of our publications. We have created an author’s promotional plan to help facilities C&C’s efforts and to provide readers with the accessibly to our writers. Therefore, marketing is a joint effort and our plan takes this into account.

Thank you for all your questions and feel free to email me at any time.

Julia | 1 comments Dear Elizabeth,

May I ask the name of Coffee and Cream Publishing's founder? On the company's website she is identified merely as "A Member of Romance Writer's Association (". The unnecessary apostrophe and use of 'Association' instead of 'America' are also rather unfortunate mistakes on a publisher's website!
