Thanks for considering us as your potential publishing partner. Whether you are a debut author seeking to find a voice, or an established voice seeking to leverage new platforms, Swoon Romance may be the publisher for you. We accept contemporary, romantic comedy, humorous and titles that evoke a deeply emotive feeling or tone.
Please be sure your Adult or New Adult Romance title meets the following:
Romance must drive the story and motivate the characters. It cannot be a subplot! We do not require HEA, but we do require a satisfying ending that makes sense and that is keeping with the story. Ideally, the story is emotive, evocative and may contain issues of a serious nature such as bullying, eating disorders, self-esteem and self-worth, fitting in, illness, cheating, online dating, cat-fishing, forbidden relationships, self-harm, etc.
Please be sure to number your pages and also to put your name and title in the top right corner of the all pages. Please be sure your novel is formatted in Times New Roman, 12-point font, double spaced (no extra spaces between paragraphs), and revised to polished perfection. Please be sure to include correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure. Please format to 1" margins all around, and only 1 space after each period. You may use the Chicago Manual of Style as a guide when polishing.
All manuscripts must be between 55-75k words and target a readership ages 18-23 for NA with romance as the main component for the story. May contain explicit sex scenes.
We are NOT interested in novels in verse, or those depicting gratuitous sex acts, rape, or violence toward humans or animals. We will NOT accept any material which is, or can be seen as derogatory toward a particular ethnic or religious group.
We look forward to reading your submission and you can expect a response within 3-6 weeks. Good luck!
