CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Christmas Flirts & New Year’s Ever Afters

May 13, 2012 by


Ready to jingle your bells and drop your ba…ah. Maybe we shouldn’t finish that sentence. But we should tell you that we’re looking to round out 2012 with a great collection of holiday stories: specifically Christmas-themed Flirts (10-15k in length) and New Year’s Ever Afters (20-40k in length)–and quickly. Dust the snowflakes off that idea you’ve been sitting on and send it our way, even if we’re a little early for Christmas in July.

For the Christmas Flirts, Entangled seeks stories that:

  • Are 10,000 to 15,000 words in length.
  • Contain strong romantic elements.
  • Center around the Christmas holiday (Hanukkah and Kwanzaa and anything else in the winter holiday season will be considered as well).

For the New Year’s Ever Afters, Entangled seeks stories that:

  • Are 20,000 to 40,000 words in length.
  • Contain strong romantic elements.
  • Center around the New Year’s holiday, whether focusing on New Year’s Eve or the new year itself, or both.

All heat levels will be accepted, but erotic elements must not be the main focus of the story. We accept any genre that Entangled currently publishes.

Previously published material will not be considered, nor will manuscripts that have already been rejected by Entangled.

Manuscripts that have been chosen for the collection will be released as ebooks in December 2012.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, please send the full manuscript (RTF format), a 1-2 page synopsis, and a one-page query letter briefly describing the premise, heat level, and word count to everafter-submissions(at)entangledpublishing(dot)com. Query letters should be addressed to Adrien-Luc Sanders. Please include either “Christmas Flirt” or “New Year’s Ever After” and your title in the subject line.

Submissions are open until July 10th, 2012 and final decisions will be made by July 31st, 2012. Standard Entangled Publishing royalty rates apply.

  1. I love Christmas stories. I love Christmas! But please clarify – “winter holiday season” – you don’t want Christmas stories set in the southern hemisphere? Christmas in New Zealand is wonderful, but its definitely not winter!
    (Being English born, hot Christmases have been hard to get used to, but I heartily recommend hot New Years, in all senses of the word!)
