Please welcome the Mistress of the Darkness herself, Callie Lynn Wolfe, Senior Editor of the Black Rose Line, The Wild Rose Press!
Good October Morning, Everyone. I will say this blog is really a busy one. Great job, Dayana! We are proud to have you sponsoring Paranormal Month at The Wild Rose Press and appreciate all the hard work you've put into getting this together.
Yes, I am the Mistress it seems of the darker side of the Garden. And I am surrounded by wonderful Dark Goddesses who know their stuff. We are hungry to get our teeth and nails into your 'edge of the seat' submissions.
Got Wolf? was a great success, and we have obtained many fabulous submissions of which I plan to offer a chance of publication through the regular submissions process. Yes, I do have the winners, but no, I can't share them at the moment. You'll just have to tune in on Halloween to see if YOU won:)
Thank you to everyone that participated. Your stories were exceptional, and I will say from the editor standpoint, extremely well written.
A bit about our line...
We encourage sexy, sensual vamps and weres-the hotter the better-though we like to see submissions containing other mystic entities such as withches, warlocks, demons, etc. We love the different twist on the same old lore. Vampires don't have to be invisible in mirrors. Shifters don't have to turn on the full moon. Sure the moon may drive the magic but we like to see that unique twist to the stories that only your imaginations can develop and run with. Maybe your vampire is truly evil but has a soft spot for your heroine and she calms the beast within. The Hero can be evil and dark but the reader has to still love him, get it? The Hero or Heroine doesn't always have to suffer remorse for what they are. They can thrive yet still be lovable. My point here is think unique. Give you stories different twists. Give them humor, give me the totally unexpected plotline.
I am very happy to be here today. Thank you for inviting me, Dayana. I'll drop by later. Right now I've got to run.
