Phaze is pleased to announce a new letter has been chosen to kickoff their 2009 themed HeatSheets!
Since the launch of our first themed HeatSheet, Phaze Sparkler, we have enjoyed great success with readers and critics. Our themed HeatSheets are ideal for readers looking for a quick "bang" for their buck and to sample the newest, hottest names in erotic romance.
Submitting a HeatSheet for publication is also a great way for new authors to join the Phaze family, and starting in 2008 Phaze plans to collect reader favorites in anthologies for print!
2005 and 2006 saw the release of S-named HeatSheets. 2007 was brought to you by the letter F, and 2008 is the year of the big O. For 2009, RRRRRRRRRRRR you ready to rock? ;-)
Announcing the themes for the 2009 Phaze R HeatSheets:
ROAR - Lion and tigers and bears, oh my! Werewolves and werelions and selkies, oh boy! We're looking for the hottest shape-shifter stories for this line - werewolves of London (or New York, or Paris...hell, even Butte, Montana!), slippery, shifting snakes, werecats of every color. Make us purr for more! Deadline, Oct 1, 2008
RAW - It ain't about wrestling, unless they happen to be tied up, too! Raw is all about the kink: give us your freakiest fetishes, your bodacious BDSM, safe words and St. Andrew's crosses aplenty. Thank you, may we have another? Deadline, December 1, 2008
REBOUND - Can your hero or heroine bounce back into love? Give us stories of romance starting over, hope after the relationship gone bad, the deep dive back into the dating pool that scores perfect tens all around. Deadline, February 1, 2009
RUSH - Feel the adrenaline yet? Just you wait. Get us high on the thrill of action/adventure romance - sexy cyberpunks and alluring femme fatales, sordid spies and vampire hunters. To hell with keeping our arms inside the car at all times! Deadline, April 1, 2009 (no foolin').
RAVEN - Nevermore? We don't think so! We'll never get tired of spooky, sexy Halloween erotica. Trick and treat us to a thrilling, beguiling romance. We'll spend the night in a haunted house, if it comes with a few amorous demons and maybe a kinky dungeon. Deadline, June 1, 2009
REBEL - Bad boys, bad girls, what'cha gonna do? Tell us your story, our rebels always have a cause - incredibly hot sex! Forbidden love, sneaky sex in public places, indulged pleasures...being bad was never so good. Deadline, September 1, 2009
