Heather and her editors want to see:

  • Badass and vulnerable Jason Bourne-like heroes
  • Gritty military/Special Ops romance similar to Lora Leigh’s Navy SEALs series
  • Edgy contemporary YA romance similar to Jennifer Echols’ FORGET YOU and GOING TOO FAR, or Simone Elkeles’ PERFECT CHEMISTRY
  • Contemporary YA thrillers
  • Susan Elizabeth Phillips-style contemporary romance, similar to HEAVEN, TEXAS or any of the Chicago Stars books
  • Fairytale retellings—YA or adult—the steamier, the better!
  • Adult and YA paranormal romances with unique, unseen-before creatures
  • New adult featuring main characters in college
  • Accessible YA Sci-Fi a lá Beth Revis’s ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
  • Contemporary romances with a wedding/marriage theme, like Emily Giffin’s Something Borrowed, or Nora Roberts’ Bride Quartet and Lori Wilde’s Wedding Veil Wishes series
  • Contemporary “ripped from the headlines” stories with strong romantic elements, like anything by Jodi Picoult, or Barry Lyga’s BOY TOY
  • NOVELLAS – YA and steamy Contemporary, specifically. Best-friends-to-lovers, brothers in love with the same woman, heroes-in-uniform, and unique situations like Laura Kaye’s HEARTS IN DARKNESS are personal faves.

Submissions for Heather can be sent directly to heather(at)entangledpublishing(dot)com. Check out our submission guidelines for specific instructions! 

 

Things we aren’t likely to request:

  • urban fantasy (no HEA in each book, usually follows the same heroine/hero through series)
  • historical fantasy
  • demons, angels, nephilim, or fae
  • women’s fiction (unless it leans heavily toward contemporary romance, like THE WHAT IF GUY)
  • chick lit (again, unless it leans heavily toward contemporary romance, like BUSTED IN BOLLYWOOD or LUCKY GIRL)
Stay tuned for some exciting announcements and a handful of specific Calls for Submissions…
