Hello! Let me start by saying how excited I am to be back here at Romance University this week! Entranced Publishing is a publisher of quality eBooks. We are currently gearing up for our launch in April with five digital-only imprints. With lines covering all subgenres of Romance, Erotica, and YA, we have something in our lineup for everyone.
This time around, I’m only taking pitches for our Entranced, Kissed, Mesmerized, and Thrills imprints.
Entranced is our main line, designed for our category romance novels. Books published under our Entranced imprint will range from sweet to a little naughty and can include LGBT. For this line, I am currently looking for romance novels from 50,000 to 120,000 words, depending on the subgenre (i.e. paranormal, fantasy, contemporary). Successful novels under this imprint will adhere to proven category tropes. For certain subgenres, such as sci-fi, urban fantasy or fantasy, HEA (happily ever after) is not required, but HFN (happy for now) is preferred.
Kissed is our line for romantic novellas, from 10,000 to 49,000 words. These should follow the same guidelines as our main Entranced imprint.
Mesmerized is our imprint focusing on erotica and erotic romance novels. This includes BDSM, as well as LGBT. Books published under this imprint must be between 50,000 and 120,000 words, depending on the subgenre.
Thrills covers erotica and erotic romance novellas ranging from 10,000 to 49,000 words. These should follow the same guidelines as our Mesmerized imprint.
Content we do not accept under any of our imprints includes: rape as titillation, pedophilia, glorification of incest, bestiality (shape-shifters do not fall into this category), necrophilia, etc.
I am accepting pitches for all of our lines. That being said, if your manuscript fits our guidelines, submit a pitch with the following:
- Title, genre, and word count
- A three line pitch
