Would you like to be a published author?





Well, here’s a chance! I’m putting together my first anthology! XoXo publishing has agreed to release “Evernight: Romance in a World of Darkness” and I want you to be a part of it! “Evernight” will be a paranormal romance anthology about the things that go bump in the night struggling to find their happily ever after.

Relationships must be heterosexual in nature. Though bi-sexuality is allowed, the HEA couple must be hetero. This is going to be an erotic anthology with a dark/gothic them. The main character/characters must go through some tragedy or strife, must overcome something in order for them to have their HEA. Submissions should be no longer than 6k words and must be no shorter than 4,500 words.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, August 1st.  Please send submissions to allisoncassatta@gmail.com. Once I receive your submission, you will get a verification email. If your submission is approved, you will get an acceptance email from me and the standard legal emails from a representative of XoXo Publishing.

Here is the draft introduction:

As children, we feared the boogeyman. Our parents comforted us when the monster under the bed or in the dark depths of our slightly opened closet threatened our safety. We cried when those evil creatures invaded our nightmares and stole us from peaceful sleep, but what if those monsters truly existed? What if they lived in a world not unlike our own, where all they wanted was the same basic needs that every human being spends their lives searching for? What if the things that go bump in the night only wanted to be loved?

In the following stories, you will read about vampires and werewolves and demons and monsters of all kinds overcoming some of the most difficult hurdles simply to find their one true love, to find their happiness. You’ll read of heated, salacious trysts beneath the moonlight and of lovers doomed before they even have a chance to find the one person who completes their soul. 

Join us as we wander through a dark world where nothing is what it seems, where rainbows after a storm are a rare miracle, where the boogeyman captures your heart and fulfils your sweetest dreams.
