As far as putting the anthology together...it'll be easiest for us, assuming everyone is still okay with us publishing it, if everyone sends us their story through the submission script, and we'll format it from there in whatever order you guys finally decide upon.

Veronica, remember when we were discussing different versions of ePubCheck? I spoke directly to Bill McCoy, one of the programmers at W3C (who created ePubCheck) because we're interested in adding the most recent version to our submission script when we go fully automated. He told me it's an open-source program, and many aggregators have modified it for their specific purposes. Apple's version is the strictest, and that's the one that's been giving us error messages through PublishDrive and StreetLib/Stealth. We're going to try and see if we can get a copy of theirs, because it will eliminate a host of problems down the road. He also said, and this is a direct quote, "The instance at validator.idpf.org is only a demonstration, not intended for production use." Validator.idpf.org is the one Smashwords uses, and tells its authors to use. So that's why you got no error messages when you reviewed your book through it, but we got errors back from PublishDrive and Stealth. It's only a beta version designed to show how the program works; it is NOT meant for actual use by authors submitting books anywhere.

Alana, I think six authors is going to be too many for a first anthology...and maybe at all. Most don't have more than five books in them. Pornelope said since they're the newest to the party, they'd be happy to pinch-hit in case anyone dropped out, or go in the next anthology if there is one.
Hi, everyone! Thanks for letting us join your new forum!
Welcome to the forum ladies!
In addition to using this as a place to discuss the anthology I'm hoping that this can become a fun hangout to discuss all things writing and publishing in general so feel free to start up a discussion thread if there's something you want to share or chat about.

Summer, please fill out our New Author Contact Form at www.borumapublishing.com/author-contact-form1.htm. Then when your book is ready to submit, please go to our submission page and fill out the relevant information. You'll want to use the Carnal Pleasures form (http://www.borumapublishing.com/carnal-pleasures-submission-form.htm) if your content is incest or bdsm-based. Timeless Erotica is reserved for all erotica that's not incest or bdsm-based, and Book Oasis is reserved for all non-erotica books.
The more information you can provide about your book, the better...at the very least, for this anthology, we'll need a short description, keywords, and all relevant genre selections. This will help us process the anthology and submit it to the widest range of sites using the widest range of genres.
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact us either through this forum, via e-mail, or through Skype. :-)
This is awesome. I can't wait to get this published.
When we send this in to the various websites, we're going to need a book blurb and an excerpt. Does anyone want to tackle that? Or should we let Jo do the blurb, etc? She's done a pretty good job in the past.
