Call placed by Scarlet Publishing for their Whispers imprint:
What we're looking for: Spicy, sensual love stories which leave a reader breathless, intense plots, alpha males, strong heroines and sizzling dialogue. Though strong conflict is necessary, it should not detract from the passionate relationship. Sub-plots should be kept to a minimum as should secondary characters.
We will not accept any story outside the bounds of sexual relationship between consenting adults. We are not seeking menage a trois, BDSM (light bondage okay), homosexuality, bestiality (or any illegal activity, for that matter).
Stories should be 25,000 words or less with a minimum of 10,000 words.
Any genre is accepted at present.
Send detailed query which should include:
a brief bio
a blurb about the book and your publishing credits
your name, address and telephone number
Include the first chapter of your story.
Also, please send a complete marketing plan which should include:
Email query to email@example.com.
** Please note that without a detailed marketing plan, your submission will not be considered. For a complete list of what they deem a complete marketing plan, see their submission guidelines page.
Please allow at least one month for a response to your initial queries. Follow-up responses may take longer depending on our current level of submissions.
