Call for submissions!

The lovely and talented Kate Cuthbert wants to spread the news: Escape Publishing is actively seeking manuscripts! If you've been holding onto that darling for years, hiding it under your bed, or just finished it, this is your opportunity! I've included her post about submissions below:

Here’s a fun fact: if you submit to Escape now, you can be a published (or multi-published) author by Christmas. We’re working to an aggressive publishing program, and we want stories!
I’m going to list some subgenres/themes that I’m very interested in, but please note: we publish all subgenres all the time. So if yours doesn’t necessarily fit in to the list, I still want to read it.
Here’s our submission page:
Why submit to Escape?
  • Australian location, global reach
  • Actively seeking risky, niche, or cross-genre stories
  • Publishes short stories (of more than 5000 words), novellas, and short and long-length novels
  • Small, flexible team, with the backing of Harlequin’s knowledge, experience, and professionalism
  • No synopsis required! Just a 100-word blurb.
  • Two-week turn-around guarantee for initial response
So what are you waiting for?
Subgenres/themes that I’m particularly interested in:
  • Romantic suspense
  • Erotic romance
  • Historical romance (any period/any time/any setting)
  • Contemporary romance (especially Australia/NZ-set)
Got questions? Hit me:
Can’t wait to see what’s in store-y for me (see what I did there? Puns! Yay!)
