|Smash the Box with Changeling Press|
2013 Submissions Call:
We're currently looking for submissions for the following Erotic Romance genres and themes: Paranormal (Shifters, Vampires, and Demons), Dark/Urban Fantasy, Sci-Fi/Futuristic, BDSM, Guilty Pleasures (Contemporary), BBW, Interracial/MultiCultural, M/M ( & More Ms), Bisexual & More, Ménage, and Cougar.
We publish Guilty Pleasures (Contemporary), BDSM, Action/Adventure, Paranormal, Sci-Fi, Futuristic, Dark Fantasy, and Urban Fantasy Erotic Romance. All submissions must be targeted for at least one of these genres.
While there should be both highly erotic and romantic elements to the book, relationships and endings should be plot driven. We don't demand your characters trot off to get married at the end of the book, though we do ask for a HEA(Happy Ever After) or, in the case of serials, a HFN(Happy For Now).
We've only got one heat level. Over-the-top hot! We can handle anything you send us as long as it meets our guidelines (Content must be legal for an over 21 audience and geared toward a primarily female readership). We do not accept simultaneous submissions. We do accept multiple submissions.
Length: We accept submissions from 10 to 35 thousand words for single titles. Serials from unsigned authors must be submitted as a completed set.
Royalties: 35% of gross paid monthly -- receive your first check within 60 days of publication. Expect to hear back from us about your submission within six to eight weeks.
What to submit:
We accept submissions via email ONLY. If you do not have reliable access to the internet to be able to communicate with us electronically, you do not have the ability to promote your work electronically.
* A short cover letter including your publishing history, if any, a short blurb and plot summary of no more than 500 words, including genres and themes you're targeting for this book, and whether it's a single title or a series/serial.
* Your COMPLETE manuscript, as an rtf (Rich Text File) or txt (Text) file attachment. Every word processing program has the ability to save as Rich Text or Text. Please do not send DOCX files. That's it for formatting. Use whatever fonts and spacing you prefer. We're going to work from a text file and reform to suit our own guidelines, anyway. We have a format macro. :-)
* A brief promotional plan, including links to your website, blog, journal, etc., and loops and chat sites where you plan to promote, should we accept your work for publication. An author's ability to promote is critical to the success of any book's sales. You will also be expected to promote your book through active participation in the Changeling Readers' loop, the Changeling Insider, our online E-Zine, The Cheeky Changeling, The Changeling Blog, our Facebook page, and other regularly-scheduled promotions.
Please Note: We're fanatics about quality. "Good enough" is never good enough. From editors, proofreaders, and line editors to artists and marketing staff, our team of dedicated professionals is here for your support.
What have you got to lose -- except your inhibitions?
