Bliss Submission Guidelines


EntBliss-Logo copy

Bliss is seeking uplifting, heartwarming stories that will be priced at $2.99 and sold digitally. The editors are looking for fresh, contemporary voices that reflect the trials and tribulations of modern love in America. The focus should be on family, home, a strong sense of community, and ultimately happiness, but the tone can be anything from snarky to emotional to nostalgic and everything in between.


Specifically, we want:

  • Dynamic storytelling that brings readers into a compelling world
  • Engaging, fast-paced dialogue
  • Romance as the primary plot—secondary characters can reinforce the hero and heroine’s journey, but shouldn’t overshadow their story
  • Familial elements
  • Must include a trope at its heart. Favorite tropes include friends to lovers, past love returns, left-behind loves, one-night stands, accidental pregnancy.
  • Dedicated, prolific authors who want to write numerous books a year are a plus
  • Stories should be closed door to non-explicit sexual language
  • Authors with voices we love: Cindi Myers and Linda Warren
  • Manuscripts must be between 50,000–70,000 words
  • We accept both agented and unagented submissions
