Thanks for considering us as your publishing partner. Whether you are a debut author seeking to find a voice, or an established voice seeking to leverage new platforms, Swoon Romance YA may be the publisher for you. All stories MUST be contemporary. WE DO NOT PUBLISH YA fantasy or paranormal.
Please be sure your Young Adult Romance title meets the following:
Please number your pages and be sure our name and title in the top right hand corner of the manuscript. 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 15-19 for Young Adult romance as the main component for the story. NO 18+ SCENES ACCEPTED. Sweet, flirty, angsty, hormonal, longing, teasing, etc. accepted. Off screen sexual relations also accepted.
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 manuscript. You may expect a response within 3-6 weeks. Good luck!
