I. What we are looking for:

Thrilling Adult and New Adult Romance and Speculative Fiction in the following subgenres:

  • Contemporary Romance
  • Historical Romance
  • Paranormal Romance
  • Sci Fi Romance
  • Romantic Suspense
  • Dark Fantasy
  • Urban Fantasy 
  • Dystopian

What will attract us to a story: well-written and strong but flawed protagonists, deep characterdevelopment, and exceptional world-building. We are always looking for original ideas and unique voices.

II. Submission Requirements

Finished manuscripts only.
  • For novels, manuscripts should have the word count of 50,000 and up. 
  • For novellas, manuscripts should have the word count of 20,000-50,000.
Please only submit manuscripts that have been through at least two round of edits. These do not have to be professional edits (that's our job!), but they should be self-edited, beta read, or partner critiqued. 

If the submission is unsolicited, you must send a query and the first ten pages. Manuscripts should be pasted into the body of the email. Do not worry about formatting. All work should be author’s original.

Plagiarism of any type will not be accepted.
