From the Berkley Publishing Group:
1) Length should be from about 85,000 to 100,000. Yes, we are doing novellas in collections.
2) Romance is fine for Heat, but it's not necessarily the focus. Happy endings are okay too.
3) I'm looking at all genres -- contemporaries, historicals and paranormals.
4) I'm okay with menage, and some homoerotic elements, but the main relationship should be hetero (think Emma Holly -- she may include homosexual/lesbian elements, but her primary relationship is hetero).
5) For submission -- 3 chapters and synopsis -- the synopsis can be shorter (4 to 10 pages range). If I'm interested in reading more I'll inform the writer.
