Montgomery, AL, June 28, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Accomplice Press, the boutique-style independent book publisher, strives to release the best that new and veteran writers have to offer their readers. The staff was optimistic that they would find several stories worthy of publication under the Curvalicious line. With heavy hearts they are announcing that there are no winners for the Curvalicious writing competition. There were numerous entries that had potential for other lines, but only one writer grasped the publisher's concept of who a Curvalicious heroine really is. Unfortunately, after some research Accomplice Press found that the winning entry was un-publishable because of undisclosed contractual reasons.
The women at Accomplice Press understand completely who full figure women really are on the inside and outside. These women are friends, sisters, mothers, wives and grandmothers; they are all beautiful and deserve to be able to read romance novels about characters that look like they do. Curvalicious women are sexy, intelligent and alluring without making their size the focus of the storyline. It is also important to the staff at Accomplice Press to stay away from the stereotypical "chubby-chaser" romances or stories that the main character loses large amounts of weight.
"The Curvalicious Romance Line is very important to us as women and as publishers. It is our first specialty series to be launched and therefore it has become near and dear to all our hearts. We want women with curves to have books that inspire them to get lost in the stories and fall in love with heroines that look and think just like they do. The world's perception of true beauty is slowly changing and we want to influence the movement. Curvalicious can help voluptuous women feel like they are sexy and viable in this romance driven society. This is a new concept for mainstream publishers and writers. We had great hopes for the writing contest but are not discouraged. The primary partners in Accomplice Press have all dealt with challenges; this is just another learning experience. We know that in time we will find a Curvalicious manuscript like our best seller, A Reason to Stay by Delinda Jasper. Her book epitomizes what Curvalicious is all about."-- Karen Jones, Public Relation Director for Accomplice Press and what some consider a full-figure woman.
