I was curious if anyone knew whether Cerridwen Press does erotica. I know they do romances and they were recommended to em because apparently the Stroies are really good. I am interested in several. But on their website it says "MAINSTREAM FICTION" and under romances nowehere does it mention erotic content. So i am a little confused. if anyone can shine light on the subject I'd appreciate it.

aren't they part of ellora's cave? there's another ebook publisher that's either linked to with ellora's cave or another publsiher..justnot sure though. I've gotten through samhain and ellora's cave and there's a few more...eredsage I had a problemgetting the ebook and it took a few emails. I'll have to look that site up and see.

i did read one Cerridwen Press book, and it definitely was not erotica.  (Broken Wings by Lora Leigh - pretty much regular fantasy.)  though i think they are part of Ellora's Cave.

I think Cerridwen Press is like a sister-store to Elora's Cave and deals in a different area, in other words non-erotica romance.  I have both bookmarked, but can't remember ever buying anything from Cerridwen because ...  well, they didn't sound like EC books.

I clicked on a link and ellora's cave came up so I'm thinking like the rest of ya'll - they're related so probably wouldnt' have the same stuff though some fantasy gets pretty 'out there'! I've found the couple of ebook retailers I've emailed with a question that they've responded within a day so if you're wanting to know for sure if there's erotica or graphic sex they can probably tell you. I've thought about emailing about a couple of ebooks on another site so I know what to expect..Ilike all kinds but I sure don't wanna be expecting erotica and get something mild and definitely don't wanna be expecting mild and get super hot! I htink it's samhain that has the neat descriptions...'vehicular sex, shower sex' etc..some are really funny!

Yes they are related, and a bunch of authors have books at both, but the erotica stays at elloras cave

They have the samne publishing/editorial  staff as Ellora's Cave & The Lotus Circle.  The editors determine which site the books belong at dependning on the heat level & content of the story.   This can get confusinmg as authors can have a series that has books on both.  (Such as Anny Cook.)  It gets even more confusing when an author has a series on both, but uses different names at each.  For example the Hollywood After Dark series by Cricket Starr(EC)/Janet Miller (Cerridwen).  This is  All Night Inn (Cerrridwin by Janet Miller), Fangs for the Memories (EC by Cricket Starr),  Ghosts of Christmas Past (EC by Cricket Starr) and Tasting Nightwalker Wine  (Cerrridwin by Janet Miller).

Thanks everybody-this was helpful. Jen Thats exactly what happened-some authors I recognized as erotica writers were on bot so I wasnt sure. The books still look worth reading though. Thanks!
