Blushing Books is a digital publisher of romance and erotic romance actively seeking new authors. Blushing Books began in 1991 as an erotica publisher that sold books primarily through mail order. They have gradually shifted their focus from erotica to erotic romance. The editors are interested in all sub-genres of romance. Most of their books feature some kind of power exchange between the hero and heroine, and they like books that feature themes of dominance and/or spanking. Most of the books would be rate PG-13, R or X. All stories must have a happily-every-after or a happy-for-now ending. While they welcome series, each story must stand on its own and have a HEA or HFN ending. At this time they are not interested in any stories where the hero or heroine is a vampire, shape-shifter, angel or werewolf. At the moment they are most interested in “contemporary adventures with domestic discipline underlying the action.” Blushing Books pays a $500 advance for book manuscripts and a 50 percent royalty.
