Attention: LGBTQ+ Authors!

I’ve written blurbs for thousands of books, covering romance of all stripes. While I’ve always been open to all subgenres, the majority of my submissions have been for M/F romance. (Which is great! Love y’all! *blows kisses*)

In the interest of strengthening my portfolio, I’m offering a special rate for authors of LGBTQ+ romance through September 30, 2020.

The first FIVE authors who submit blurb materials for an LGBTQ+ romance will get one FREE blurb package. (150-200 word blurb, choice of taglines, and three shorter blurb versions). Value $45.

All others who book services for an LGBTQ+ romance through Sept. 30, 2020, will receive 20% off.

Applies to new clients and to those who’ve worked with me before.

All heat levels welcome, sweet to erotic.

A “submission” consists of a manuscript and synopsis (or some kind of outline).

Send submissions (or questions) to carolanivey (at) yahoo.com.

PS: Watch out for a Halloween/Gothic romance submission special!

Recent Projects: Incarcerated by Inger Iversen

Print“We all wear two masks. One to hide from the world. The other to hide from ourselves.”

Katie Andreasson’s home office, where she writes best-selling novels, is her refuge from criticism that her private education, her success–even the way she speaks–betrays her own race. With her mother’s death, grief and increasing isolation inspire her to create Capshaw Penitentiary’s pen pal program. Even secretly participate, though her adopted father–the prison warden–would never approve.

Growing up in hardscrabble, rural Kentucky, Logan Whyte learned the hard way to stick with his own kind to stay out of trouble. Still, skirting the edges of the wrong crowd eventually landed him in prison–face to face with the kind of hard-core prejudice he never whole-heartedly embraced.

Now, with plans to get his life back on track once he’s out, he’s exchanging letters with “Kristen”. The rules dictate they can never meet, yet her neatly penned letters do more than ease him toward rejoining the human race. They make him imagine what it would be like to touch the woman behind them. Maybe even call her his.

Safely hidden behind anonymous letters, friendship takes root and grows into bittersweet yearning. But as they break down emotional walls, the truth is revealed, leaving them with the greatest challenge of all. Proving to themselves–and the outside world–that love is truly colorblind.
