Indulgence Submission Guidelines
Indulgence is an innovative line of category romance novels priced at $2.99 and sold digitally. Since launching in February 2012, we have singlehandedly changed the face of category romance and made it something readers look forward to picking up every month. Category romance is hot!
We’re looking for fresh voices and realistic stories that reflect how young women live and love today. Stories can have a range of tones and styles: funny, mysterious, dramatic, snarky, or really sexy. These stories are active, fast-paced, and dialogue-heavy, that use tropes to drive the story. Limited naval gazing, please! Be bold. Be daring.
Specifically, we want:
- Proven category tropes such as matchmakers, ugly duckling, friends to lovers, revenge, blackmail, enemies to lovers, mistaken identity. We employ three tropes per story.
- Stories featuring alpha heroes and the confident women who love them.
- Stories must focus on the hero and heroine alone; no secondary characters as main characters with POV.
- Strong conflict. What is keeping these two apart and how do they overcome the obstacles?
- Stories can be closed door to hot. Yes, we do steamy sex!
- Unsure whether you’ve written an Indulgence or a Brazen ? If the emotional connection between your characters drives the romance (and the sex!), Indulgence is the imprint for you. Brazen focuses on the physical relationship between the characters.
- Manuscripts must be 45-60K words in length.
- Authors who are willing to edit and work with us to make the manuscript the best it can be.
- We accept both agented and unagented submissions.
