One of this year's panelists was L. Perkins , a cover artist for numerous small presses and for electronic press Liquid Silver please note her site is undergoing renovation at the moment; I gave the link for future reference. I've been following reports from fellow writers who've experimented with electronically publishing novels or short stories they were unable to sell elsewhere, or that were out of print; sometimes they have significant sales.
I've been following discussions of using free Kindle downloads to encourage sales of an author's backlist. Last year, I didn't have any of that information. This year, discussion of these possibilities is becoming more and more mainstream. She graciously consented to answer some questions I had about the process of editing and her latest anthology, Passion: Erotic Romance for Women. How do you choose a focus for an anthology? How did you choose the focus of Passion? How does your original idea for an anthology translate into the call for submissions, and into the stories you eventually choose?
I put out very detailed calls in terms of what they should look like but regarding content try to leave plenty of room to allow authors to come up with whatever strikes their fancy. What's the hardest part of choosing stories? The most fun? The hardest part is rejecting stories. The most fun part is finding a story that just nails the theme perfectly and is so wonderful I want to read it to everyone I know. Those are the gems and make the very time-consuming process of reading submissions a joy. How do you choose the order in which stories appear? What input does the publisher have into the final product?
I add stories as I go over a few months of editing, and at the end may move them around. I like to build up to the more intense stories, but a lot of it, for me, is actually pretty random. I appreciate this attention to detail and think it makes the books truly beautiful, inside and out. They find outstanding cover photographs and work hard to create quality, memorable books.
What was the first anthology you edited? How did that come about? She asked me to help and that book includes stories by Tristan Taormino and L. Elise Bland. Thanks, Rachel! I'm looking forward to the anthology! Appearances Updated list of where to find me in person and online.

View all 6 comments. Mar 13, Janet Robel rated it liked it. This is an erotic story. I thought it was enjoyable but I didn't love it. I liked Imena because she's a take-charge woman who is the captain of her own ship. I had a hard time liking Maxime, and since he is the hero of the story, it pretty much made it hard for me to get into the book.
Jan 08, holly quigley rated it liked it. I'm having a hard time rating this book. The overall plot and structure felt a little too loose, like it could have used another revision or two to tighten things up. The intrigue arc fell a little flat. So I'm stuck with a bit of a quandary, because I really en I'm having a hard time rating this book. So I'm stuck with a bit of a quandary, because I really enjoyed the individual scenes that made up this book, but as a full story, it needed some polish and tightening.
I almost want to give it four stars anyway, because like I said, the individual scenes were great. Beautiful imagery, great fights, and the sex was hot and not formulaic. The only word I can think of for it is "sincere," which sounds ridiculous, I know. Janssen really put her love into this book, and it shows in so many ways.
