Caramel Flava

Zane's Caramel Flava, the long anticipated follow-up to Chocolate Flava, will be released in the Summer of 2006.

Stories must be between 3,000 and 5,000 words. Stories must feature at least one character of Latino descent.

Zane writes:

I am not looking for stories with weak, sugar-coated sex. Nor am I looking for stories that are nothing but fluff. There must be a storyline and characters readers can get into. Stories cannot be degrading to either sex. In fact, they should empower the reader to discover sexual liberation.

Unlike other erotica anthologies that concentrate on getting well known authors to participate, I am looking for erotic stories, and names have nothing to do with it. That will not determine the success of this book because it will be without relying on that; just as Chocolate Flava has
been and that book is full of people using obvious pen names. I am more interested in discovering new and powerful voices.

As with Chocolate Flava, Caramel Flava will be divided into three sections: a male section,
a female section, and will end with a section of stories written by me.

The exposure is priceless because the book will sell a minimum of 250,000 copies and will be marketed cross-culturally. Keep in mind that most books published never sell more than 10,000
copies during their entire shelf life.
