Passionate Plume is the contest for published books held by the Passionate Ink (erotic romance) chapter of RWA. The winners were just announced. Of course, Ellora’s Cave is delighted with how many of our authors were recognized. I was also very pleased to see the diversity of types of story, of writing styles, of erotic themes; the number of different publishers and authors represented for both e-pubs and print pubs.
