NEW ADULTWord count 75,000 - 110,000If you are writing in New Adult, please make sure that you fully understand this genre. It is not simply stories of teens having sex. I am interested in stories that really are looking at the world from this unique "in the middle" perspective. Essentially, if you read the Women's Fiction guidelines, you will get the idea.If you are pitching this idea top me, please use the standard categories but in the premise, begin by stating it is a NEW ADULT project.
SINGLE TITLE HISTORICAL ROMANCEWord count 75,000 - 110,000These stories can be set in any time period. The stories should demonstrate a strong understanding of the time period and not rely on "source book" levels of research. I am personally not looking for westerns and stories set during the Civil War.Show me you have something unique in this category!
Paranormal IS NOT Fantasy!
SINGLE TITLE WOMEN'S FICTIONWord count 75,000 - 110,000I am actively looking for "book club" style women's fiction pieces. These stories should examine the world through a woman's eyes. We want to see what it means to be a woman. Stories can be historical or contemporary but the focus must be on the female journey.Please focus on one issue and not a ton of personal problems the protagonist has.Stories can have happy or sad endings.Please no adultery.
