Entranced and its imprints are now open to general submissions of all genres of YA, NA, romance and erotica, including fantasy, urban fantasy and science fiction with strong romantic elements. We encourage authors both established and unpublished, agented or unagented to submit. We will consider previously published manuscripts on a case by case basis. Proof of rights reversion must accompany previously published manuscripts.
We currently do not publish Christian romance.
For science fiction, fantasy, and urban fantasy submissions: we prefer strong romantic elements, however, it does not require a happily ever after ending. Happy for now is preferred; however, if it is part of a series, than a satisfying progression in the romantic arc is necessary rather than a HEA or HFN.
We are currently accepting all sub-genres of upper YA and NA. Strong characters, romantic elements and compelling plots are a must.
Between 10,000 and 120,000 words (YA and NA must be between 50,000 and 90,000 words). For YA, we are currently only accepting upper YA–nothing geared towards the lower ages (16 and below). Please keep this in mind when submitting.
Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please keep us informed of the status with other publishers.
No pedophilia, bestiality (shapeshifters do not fall under this category) , necrophilia, rape as titillation, glorification of incest etc.
