October was an awesome month for Entangled! We announced three new lines, put out a call for two anthologies, sold some foreign rights, and signed more than a dozen new books! Our 2012 schedule is nearly full, but we’re always looking for awesome stories.
As always, please do not query more than one editor with your project at a time.
Liz and her editors want to see:
- Category romance – contemporary
- Historicals similar to Judith McNaught
- Adult romance – anything fresh. No more demons, angels, or vampires.
- Hard Sci-Fi romance
- YA paranormal romance in a high school setting
- YA Sci-Fi – especially with hackers or something software-related.
- Jennifer Crusie and Susan Elizabeth Phillips-style contemporaries
- EVER AFTERs and FLIRTs – Anything except suspense!
Submissions for Liz and her editors can be sent directly to liz(at)entangledpublishing(dot)com. Check out our submission guidelines for specific instructions!
Heather and her editors want to see:
- Badass yet 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 or mysteries
- 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
- EVER AFTERs and FLIRTs – Especially contemporary! I’d love to see holiday and winter submissions for both lines within the next two weeks, which would be released in December and January. Beyond that, best-friends-to-lovers, brothers in love with the same woman, heroes-in-uniform, and unexpected circumstances that force people together are personal favorites.
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)
