MARKET: Steam Romance

Steam Romance is a new imprint for erotica, romance, or some combination thereof. One of the types of fiction they are looking for is described as "for men". Their definitions for romance and erotica, respectively, could best be described as... muddled.  I am wondering if this is a bandwagon imprint, looking to cash in on the sexy book trend?

Steam is described as an imprint of Kennebec Publishing.  While steam specifies that authors "pay nothing", Kennebec offers "services" including the offer to "work with your writing, hire ghost writers, or write on your behalf"-- whch does not sound entirely free to me.Only their other imprint "Prepper Press" has actual books listed on the website.
