Seeking Sweet Romance Manuscripts: Ink Spell Publishing

Post date: 25 April 2012
Winter is almost to an end but we know that the next holiday season will be here before we know it. A magical romance that warms up the coldest nights of December can spin its spell throughout the whole year. The spirit of the holiday only enhances the pure enjoyment that comes from a true romantic book.

We are looking for sweet, holiday, and contemporary romances that can bring home those feelings of warm love. We want romance exuding from the books with light-hearted humor.

Think Cecilia Ahern. Think Marian Keyes. Think Patricia Scanlan.

Below are the elements we are looking for:

1) Contemporary Romance or Urban Paranormal Romance
2) Sweet romance
3) Holiday themed – Christmas/Thanksgiving/Halloween
4) Fairy tale touch
5) Word count: 40,000 – 80,000

Please follow the below guidelines to submit:
  • Please put subject as: SWEET ROMANCE / (TITLE) / WORD LENGTH / AUTHOR NAME.
  • Please send in your query with a two-four page full synopsis (including the ending) in the body of the email.
  • Do NOT send the synopsis as an attachment.
  • Do NOT send the full manuscript. We will request it if we like the synopsis.
  • Please add the following information at the end of the email: name, pen name, website, blog, other places we can find you

Please try not to forget to include all the above asked information. Though we do not reject submissions if any of the information is missing, it does prolong the process of evaluation and hence, the chances of getting accepted.
