The Bywater Books Romance Hotline is actively seeking romance submissions in five popular subgenres:
- Romantic Suspense
With this new venture, we are specifically looking to enhance our existing library of titles with a brand new romance catalog, and we’re looking for previously unpublished full-length novels (between 60,000 – 100,000 words).
While your romance submission can include other genre elements, we are looking for romances that focus on a couple’s emotional journey together towards love.
Lesbian Romances, by nature, must be between consenting women of any age, race, creed, religion, or social status, and have a happily-ever-after or at least happy-for-now ending.
At Bywater Books, we believe variety is the spice of life—especially a reader’s life—and we’re happy to consider a wide variety of plot lines and characters, but we’re always looking for:
- Smart, savvy, confident heroines with strong goals and ambitions
- Lesbians of all varieties.
- New twists on favorite themes
And most importantly, we’re seeking authors with fresh, vibrant, unique voices.
So if you’ve got a romance that you believe is ready for prime time, please send it our way!
