Food can be sexy as all heck. Its used in all manner of ways within the film industry to gloss over events or allude to certain actions. What romance novel is worth its salt if there isn’t a bit of melted chocolate dripping from a buff chest – in desperate need of the heroine to ..well.. thats enough of all of that… you get the picture.
We all know how sexy food can be – but how boring are some recipe books? This innocent question was posed at an online writers group a few months ago and received a flurry of suggestions and comments, prompting Sylvia Petter and I to launch a collaboration in order to bring balance back to the universe. Think about it – erotic stories backed up by luscious recipes drawn directly from the action within the tale – a match made in heaven.
Raunchy Recipes aims to put a halt to boring recipe books, turning up the heat in the kitchen with a resource spilling over with sensual stories, backed up with glorious recipes and simple line drawings. Given the popularity of kindle, ipads and the like, we believe this collection of short steamy stories and recipes are best delivered in electronic format. We intend on launching it through ether books initially and branching out to other outlets later on.
Depending on the popularity, we might consider some print on demand hard copies in 2013.
Apart from the fame and glory of being involved, successful contributors ( authors and artists) will be sent a copy of the eBook version before the Launch. Should the edition be published in hard copy format the following year, contributors will be eligible to purchase the print anthology/recipe book at wholesale price.
So! Sylvia and I are excited about working together to produce a fun, saucy and delectable anthology of erotic short stories, liberally peppered with luscious line drawings. We welcome emerging authors and artists as keenly as seasoned creatives. Submissions are being accepted between the 14th of February and the 1st of August 2012. Publication for the ebook is aimed for mid Dec 2012.
