What makes a Shadowfire Press erotic romance different than other erotic romance publisher's ebooks?
First and foremost our books are a complete, fully realized story. While some of our erotica titles lean more heavily toward sexual content, books labled 'erotic romances' are first and foremost a great romance read. At Shadowfire Press we believe that sexual content should be the dessert that comes with a full meal of excitement, danger, the triumph of good over evil, love and romance, rather than the 'main course' of the novel or story.
Meet Some of our Staff:
Michael Barnette: Editor-in-Chief

Back in the 1990s he also published a small horror and poetry zine, evernight, under the Shadowfire Press imprint, which is where the company got it's name. In addition to publishing evernight the former incarnation published quite a few poetry chapbooks by different poets--and the current incarnation has published one poetry ebook, Michael's Children of Evernight which contains some of his vampire poetry. Other prior experience includes being a first reader for several other publishers, and serving as an editor for one of them.
