May submission calls

Entangled Publishing has put out several special submission calls in May. You can see them all here:

In addition, they have a new line of category (55-70,000 words) paranormal romance, called Covet. The main focus is on the romance, with the paranormal/worldbuilding aspect more in the background. Guidelines are here: http://www.entangledpublishing.com/submission-information/covet-submission-guidelines/.

Crimson Romance (Adams Media) put out a twitter call for more romance submissions the week before US Memorial Day. They want category length, approximately 50,000 words. Submission guidelines here: http://www.adamsmedia.com/call-for-submissions.

Carina press put out their Spring 2012 submission wish list on May 18, with specifics for most of their editors (I say “most” because my editor wasn’t listed): http://carinapress.com/blog/2012/05/carina-press-spring-2012-call-for-submissions/.

Avon Impulse (their digital-first imprint) put out a twitter call for their Halloween anthology in mid-May. Here’s their tweet: “We are looking for a few good spooky love stories! @AvonImpulse seeking submissions for Halloween anthology. Info online:…” I can’t find any specific information on their website, but you could always tweet them and ask.

Those are just the calls that caught my eye in the last few weeks. I’m sure there are more out there. It’s a good season to be a romance writer.

Copy Edits

I’m in the midst of copy edits for The Valmont Contingency. It’s amazing; they take away my semicolons and then go after me for comma splices. Snort.

Hopefully I’ll have time to put together a real post this week.

I have a publication date

October 1, 2012. Eep! I have so much to do before then.

Second round of developmental edits have been turned in, and the title is still The Valmont Contingency; mentioning The Nobinata Gambit and The Ocasek Opportunity must have given it some context. We’ll see, I guess.

For now, back to work on the new stuff.
