★·.·★ R.F. works exclusively with modern retellings loosely based on public domain stories. ★·.·★
Description: These particular collections are list-your own multi-author series, where each author lists their own book and can view sales and directly receive their royalties. In order to maintain a cohesive appearance, the buy-in includes a graphics package, proofreading & formatting, a social media planner and post script, and a budget for marketing.
The Details are a secret, but we can tell you this:
★ There must be an HEA (no cliffhangers)
★ Crowned is a royal contemporary romance. All sub-genres welcome as long as they have a modern day royal in the everyday world.
★Malefactor is a semi-shared fantasy world that will have prompts that must appear in the story (these are minor) and shouldn't affect your plot points.
What else can we say?
★ Be creative and innovative, get inspired by the OG fairytale ★
Content must be suitable for 16+, no erotica
Steamy *jalapeños* are fine.
