A broad range of women’s fiction with a historical setting, including category-style romances, generational sagas, romantic epics, and relationship novels. Please note, these books do not need to be romances, though they should all carry elements of romantic involvement. Lengths will vary according to sub-genre.

What to Submit

Please submit your first 3 chapters and a synopsis, or the full ms and synopsis if submitting a novella.

Include a writing-specific CV or account of your writing history, a few lines about the book, including word count and which line you are targeting, and why your submission would suit Embrace.

All submissions should be by Word doc (not docx). RTF will be accepted, though Word is preferred. Other formats may be rejected. Please include your title, or an abbreviation of it, and your surname in each file name, attaching the synopsis separately.

To improve your chances of acceptance, attention should be paid to rules of punctuation, spelling and good writing generally before a manuscript is submitted.
