Writerly Wednesday: A call for submissions!

Quartet Press

Former Senior Vice President and Publisher of Taunton Press Don Lin has teemed up with Booksquare.com’s Kassia Krozier, Kirk Biglione of Medialoper.com and Kat Meyer, long-time book marketer for trade and academic presses to form a new e-publishing venture, Quartet Press. Quartet will launch its first imprint, Quench Romance! this fall. The editors are currently accepting queries for all types of romance fiction, including erotic romance. They’re also interested in other genres of fiction that have a strong romantic thread.

At this time, Quartet Press is particularly interested in queries for erotic romance and romantic suspense.

Call for Submissions

We are looking for strong, engrossing stories featuring great characters and solid plots. Trends come and go, but good novels live forever. Focus on storytelling, character development, and solid plotting. We’re interested in books that keep our readers up past their bedtime and leave them satisfied when they reach the final page. (Satisfied, yet wanting another great book to read!)

Please only query with new, previously unpublished material or previously published works for which the author has had all rights reverted (see information below regarding reprints).

– Full-length novels should range between 50,000 – 100,000 words.
– Short stories and novellas ranging from 10,000 – 30,000 words will be considered as well.
– If it falls somewhere in between, please limit your query to cover letter and synopsis.

For stories that fall into the “erotic romance” arena, sex scenes must be integral to the story. In any work, actually, the developing sexual relationship should be a natural extension of the story. Remember: quality, not quantity. Language should fit the story, characters, and author voice.

Only one manuscript per author will be considered.
