Virgin/Cheek Line No Longer Accepting Submissions

I received my RWR this month and the news that jumped out at me was the Virgin Cheek line is no longer accepting submissions. The words are “The Virgin/Cheek line is suspended after February 2009.” Michelle Pillow, a recommended read by Jayne, is a Cheek author (I think she also has published with some reputable epublishers). While the Cheek site is still active, there are no new updates since 2007. I hope Pillow finds a new home for her books if Cheek is going to be eliminated altogether.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I always wondered why they bothered with Cheek, when they already have the Blacklace line.

    I was wondering if there was any update to this? I have always loved the Black Lace imprint and just started getting into Cheek. I find the quality of these lines are much higher than any other erotica lines (ie. Ellora’s Cave). I think the UK publishes the right mix of naughty for me. Harlequin’s lines seem too tame.
