Embrace is seeking fresh, strong voices that capture the emotions and complexities of characters straddling the line between high school and the adult world of work and family. Our ideal protagonists are 18-24 years old, and still finding their way to adulthood, separating from their parents, heading off to college, experiencing full-time employment, searching for love, and even beginning families. For these characters, it’s a time of experimentation and metamorphosis. We are looking for books told from the point of view of the emerging adult, defining a critical period of decision making and growth.
Embrace is looking for engaging voice and bold, fresh stories in the following genres:
- Science fiction
- 40K – 100K words in length
- a strong romantic subplot is a must
- Heat levels ranging from sweet to sultry
- We accept both agented and unagented submissions
