Liquid Silver Update: LSB – Looking to the Future
What’s new and exciting at LSB? 2008 has been a year of renewal for Liquid Silver. First stage was increasing our staff. Tina Burns took over the role of Publisher to lead LSB in an expansion phase by increasing submissions, author retention, and moving Liquid Silver to be more visible in the ePublishing world. We brought Tracey West on board as our Acquisitions Editor, and Maria Rogers as our Publishing Admin.
We’ve updated our Submission Guidelines, and added a new heat level, Sterling Silver. This category will feature stories that allow for emotional buildup leading to the culmination of relationship sex, longer sensual tension. All genres are accepted for this heat level. We’ve also opened up our Molten Silver line to include "sterling" type stories for GLBT characters.
We lowered our word count acceptance from 20K minimum to 15K. We felt that anything less than 15K would hinder our focus on bringing quality, well developed stories to the masses.
In 2009 we’re launching a year long series highlighting Firemen, titled Hearts Afire. While we continue to accept and publish all genres, you’ll see more themed calls for submissions as well as a few secret projects we’ve got burning holes in our pockets.
As always, we’re dedicated to publishing quality erotic romance. Many of the changes we’ve made and continue to make are thanks to suggestions by readers and authors. We welcome feedback of any kind, our "office" is always open.
