Publisher and author spotlights for November

For the month of November the publisher spotlight is on Cheyenne Publishing.

Cheyenne Publishing is an independent publisher of quality LGBT novels and anthologies, specializing in historical fiction. Their adult fiction is culled from some of the best writers in gay historical fiction today including Erastes, Charlie Cochrane, Lee Rowan, and Ruth Sims.
Cheyenne Publishing also takes special pride in their young adult line that can readily be recommended to gay teens.
Cheyenne Publishing was founded in 2007 by Mark R. Probst, who started the press when he noticed that LGBT historical fiction was underrepresented in the mainstream presses.
Genres include historical gay romance (affectionately known as “breeches” rippers), contemporary gay romance, gay mystery, gay Westerns, and LGBT young adult fiction.
 
Normal Miguel by Erik Orrantia won the Lambda Literary Award for Best Gay Romance 2010.
 
Cheyenne Publishing also has a number of young adult books with some or all proceeds benefitting The Trevor Project. Cheyenne’s young adult anthology, Awake, features contributions from Kathe Koja, Robin Reardon, and Nancy Garden, author of the groundbreaking 1982 teen lesbian novel Annie on my Mind. 100% of the net proceeds for Awake benefit The Trevor Project.
 
The Pride Pack is a series of LGBT teen mysteries in the style of Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys. The Pride Pack is penned by Ruth Sims who is donating all her royalties for the series to The Trevor Project.

Our author spotlight is on Selena Kitt.

Selena Kitt is a bestselling and award-winning author of erotic fiction. She is one of the highest selling erotic writers in the business. With half a million ebooks sold in 2011 alone, she is the cream-at-the-top of erotica! 
 
Her writing embodies everything from the spicy to the scandalous, but watch out-this kitty also has sharp claws and her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.
 
When she’s not pawing away at her keyboard, Selena runs an innovative publishing company (www.excessica.com) and in her spare time, she devotes herself to her family—a husband and four children—and her growing organic garden. She loves bellydancing and photography. She also loves four poster beds, tattoos, voyeurism, blindfolds, velvet, baby oil, the smell of chewing gum and leather, and playing kitty cat.
 
Her books EcoErotica (2009), The Real Mother Goose (2010) and Heidi and the Kaiser (2011) were all Epic Award Finalists. Her only gay male romance, Second Chance, won the Epic Award in Erotica in 2011. Her story, Connections, was one of the runners-up for the 2006 Rauxa Prize, given annually to an erotic short story of “exceptional literary quality,” out of over 1,000 nominees, where awards are judged by a select jury and all entries are read “blind” (without author’s name available.)
 
She can be reached on her website at http://www.selenakitt.com
