Tonight is one for true celebration. I’m going to post a blog from Booktrope. I’m a lucky girl tonight, taking the helm of two distinct and wonderful imprints. I have to say I’m still in shock.
You’re going to learn a little bit about the real girl and her aspirations with this breaking news. I’ve been writing since I was five, having published well over 170 books in several genres. This is a new step for me, one I know came along at the right time. I’m still going to write, given that’s my first love and will be working with Naughty Nights Press and others of course. But this new venture means something special and a place I need to go to. I hope you celebrate with me!
Thank you to everyone at Booktrope who has really made me feel special and especially Katherine Fye Sears for her support.
ENTICE AND EDGE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT
We are on a roll here at Booktrope HQ! I am thrilled to announce a new Managing Director for our Edge and Entice imprints, Bethany Halle. You may know her better by one of her pen names, but trust me when I say, she is the real deal. Here is a little bit more about Bethany:
Bethany Halle is the award winning, best-selling author of over one hundred and seventy books writing as Cassandre Dayne, DH Black and Dakotah Black. She is also a blog talk radio host of ‘The Edge’, highlighting authors, publishers and other artists who take their creative pieces to a raw and unconventional precipice. She has authored many genres from erotic romance, to cozy mysteries. Her works as Cassandre have delved into various aspects of BDSM, D/s, edge play, domestic discipline and dark thrillers in books as well as her widely read blog. Ms. Halle is an advocate for education and continued understanding of a true D/s lifestyle, one widely mistaken as a form of abuse.
Edge by Booktrope
The hunger is unrelenting. Feed your darkness…
Everyone has an intense desire lurking within, a dark hunger fueling our unbridled fantasies, the nightmares capturing our souls.
The Booktrope Edge Imprint is looking for novellas and books of any word length, highlighting exciting, gripping and sometimes dangerous aspects of human nature. The stories should push the envelope of BDSM – D/s, edge play, and dubious consent, as well as intense thrillers, where the characters are taken to the extreme. We require vivid content, leaving little to the imagination with a well-developed storyline, allowing readers a vicarious look into a realm few will ever experience.
Entice by Booktrope
A taste of passion. A kiss of romance. A desire fulfilled…
In the heat of romance lies the passion for more, a hunger to fulfill our sinful fantasies, unleash every desire.
The Booktrope Entice Imprint is looking for novellas and books of any word length, highlighting the throes of passion and romance through steamy adventures of love and lust. The stories should follow the traditional HEA (happily ever after) or HFN (happy for now) format, while allowing readers a taste of the erotic. We require vivid scenes and enriched characters, telling a story that will ultimately lead to a breathtaking end. While the heat level can be very high, the ultimate goal is to provide a satisfying conclusion.
For those interested in submitting to the Edge imprint, please go through our usual submission process found here. We are also looking for editors, proofreaders, cover designers and marketing professionals with an interest in the above imprints, please apply here. If you have questions for Bethany about Edge or Entice, please leave them in the comments or reach out on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or via email bethany.halle (at) booktrope.com.
