Penny’s Submissions Calls
It’s time once again to share my submission calls wishlist.
Calling all racy page-turners with adventurous contemporary adults learning to embrace their sexuality in a modern world. Although Entice embraces works of 35-65k, I’m craving works in the 35-45k range. Characters at the high end of the age requirements are preferred.
Again, I’m looking for shorter works fitting within our guidelines and, please, characters over 25. I’m fond of workplace romances, sex-leads-to-love, and friends-with-benefits stories with adventurous characters who explore new territory and bring their fantasies to life.
I’m hankering for 20-50k Fantasy, Mystery, Steampunk, Suspense, & Paranormal Romances. Magical powers are always fun. Strong motivation, likable characters, realistic conflict, compelling worlds and a satisfying HEA are a must.
If interested, please email your manuscript and a two-page synopsis to PennyBarber@lyricalpress.com. Alternatively, you may upload your work on our Submittable page, found here: https://lyricalpress.submittable.com/submit
. If you have something fitting Lyrical’s guidelines, but isn’t what I requested, no worries. Our acquisition team will be happy to review it via Submittable.
Thanks, all. Have a great week!
