New Writing Opportunity: Harlequin Historical Undone

Post date: 07 March 2012
NEW writing opportunity! Harlequin Historical Undone is accepting submissions— check out the guidelines below!
  • Word Length: 10–15,000 words
  • Format: eBooks
  • Senior Editor: Linda Fildew
  • Editor: Sally Williamson
  • Editorial Assistant: Megan Haslam
  • Editorial Office: London, U.K.

If you've always wanted to write for Harlequin Historical, but were daunted by the length, now is your chance to submit something shorter!

The response to Harlequin Historical's more sensual story lines has been so positive that we have created a new eBook sexy short story program—Historical Undone.

The history should be well researched in order to give an authentic sense of period without taking over from the romance. We are happy to consider stories set in ancient civilizations up to and including the First and Second World Wars. What remains ever popular are the Regency tales, which could see your characters scandalizing high society or being drawn into a salacious underworld inhabited by pickpockets and courtesans!

We are also open to slightly different elements from those normally found in Harlequin Historical books. Please feel that you can explore, for example, aspects of the paranormal and time travel.

You do not need to be agented to send material to us. We are actively looking for talented new authors and wish you every success with your submissions.

Only complete manuscripts submitted electronically will be considered—no partials or queries, please. Submissions should be sent as a Word-compatible attachment. Submissions should also follow standard formatting guidelines and should be double-spaced and typed in a clear, legible font on numbered pages. Author name and title should appear as a header or footer on each page.
