Today is release day, so I can’t go anywhere else on this tour today but Breathless Press
Here you can find Crushing Desire (Feb 12, 2010) and Bound By Love (Jan 29, 2010), and a number of other wonderful novels.
What you can find there.
Breathless Press has some interesting areas for you to explore above and beyond the books.
Along the top, you can see all the categories for breathless books. Romance (Suspense & Fantasy), Erotic, Paranormal, Adonis (M/M), Timeless (Historical), Temptations (Novellas), Flirts (Short stories), Forthcoming, and Free Reads
The most recent news and up and coming events can be found on the left side of the sign on screen. There are also submission guidelines for authors at the click of a button. On the bottom of the left bar, you can find a set of common tags you can use to look up books in the Breathless database, and a sign up spot for the newsletter.
To the right, you can see books you have been looking at, the books in your cart, and compare info on the books you are interested in. (They also have wishlists available for you to remember novels that you wanted to, but were unable to get–check out the forthcoming page to see what will be available soon.) There is also usually a poll there you can check out.
Now if you head to the bottom of the page, you can see a number of the usual suspects. About Us (and search and contact info), Submissions (and a sample contract), Customer service (and an explanation of the point system) and Job Opportunities can all be found at the bottom of the page. However, you will also be able to Meet Breathless Press, an interesting link with a little info on some of the major players in the company, and visit the Breathless G-spots.
In the G-Spots you will find the company twitter, and facebook accounts to keep up on the latest. And you can also find the blog.
That is for another tour, but I suggest you check it out, there are some very fun and interesting blog.
Let’s see what Justyn had to say to readers about Breathless Press.
Hello. I’m Justyn Perry, publisher at Breathless Press. Publishing is not a difficult profession, but it is a challenging one. The individual has to be aware of trends, author popularity, and most of all computer savvy. Once these three areas are met, it just takes time and effort to grow the company, very much like any company. Breathless Press is rapidly growing thanks in part to some key people.
Why did you decide to start this site?
I decided to start Breathless Press in July of 2009 in the middle of the night. At that time, it was just a small thought and nothing more but when I thought about it again and again, I decided to go ahead with it.
When did you start your site?
The site actually came into existence July 26th, 2009. At that time there was only 2 authors and 9 books. After that day, I crossed my fingers and hoped that we would be accepted by the reading community. Shortly after, we received our first submission (after opening).
What aspect of the site are you most proud of?
I am most proud of the number of authors and books we have contracted since opening. To date, we have 15 authors and 38 titles. To me, this tells us that Breathless Press is becoming a recognizable place.
What can we expect from you next?
What’s next… That’s a tough question. Breathless Press will be expanding in the coming months. By Summer, we are planning on bumping up our production schedule to 2 new releases each week. This means an increase in editors, authors, and other staff. We are currently in the talks of expanding into print. We have a few books that we are working on to get them ready to head off to the printers. There will be 5-8 slots for print books each year.
Anything else you would like A History readers to know?
The Romance genre has been around for centuries. From early writers such as Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice) and Mary Shelley; the genre has grown exponentially into a multibillion dollar industry. I hope that Breathless Press can carve out a small portion of this niche and provide quality books to readers.
Thank you for coming along on the tour this week. See you next time.
