Scarlet Petals Press

Currently, all heat levels are being considered. Acceptable sub-genres include:

• Romantic Erotica

• Contemporary (Men in uniform, bad boys, friends with benefits)

• BDSM/S&M

• Gay & Lesbian

• Menage

• Paranormal/Urban Fantasy (Weres, vampires and witches only, please.)

• Historical/Cowboy

• Fairy Tale (Modern setting only, please.)

• Amish

• Pseudo-taboo (Non-blood-related couples only, please.)

We will not publish material with under-aged characters (below 18 years) or any kind of non-were bestiality. Were-creatures must express human characteristics, at least some of the time.

Erotica submissions should still have a strong romantic theme, good characterization and a happily ever after, or, at least, a happily ever after for now ending.

Submissions should be between 30,000 – 50,000 words (firm) and be submitted in block format manuscript style, where possible. No special fonts or formatting. Please use acceptable manuscript formatting (double-space with one-inch margins) and Times New Roman 12 point font. Please include if your story is part of a larger series, how much has been written and what your projected series length is. Also include your contact information (real contact for records/payment purposes – to be kept private – plus writing name, address, email, and phone number).

Send your submission to mail@khpbooks.com with a synopsis in the body of the email, and the actual manuscript attached in .doc format. Let us know if you have any questions before submitting.

KHP Publishers, Inc. and all of its imprints publish only ebooks at this time. Payment is 50% net royalties – no advance – paid on a quarterly basis.

Simultaneous submissions are okay. Response time will vary, but expect to receive a response in 1-4 weeks. Please do not send follow-up emails unless you place the book before you have received a response from us. Your book must be unpublished at the time of submission. Please do not send books in series that have already been launched by another publisher or that you are self-publishing. We will consider reprints, but only if your book has been out of print for several years or you have a large body of work.

Hey folks. Not sure if you’ve heard, but I’ve pinched this from the KHP Books Submissions page to spread the word.

Violet Ivy Press is currently closed to submissions.

However…

Our imprints Black Death Books, Skullvines Press, and Blasphemous Books are open for submissions for the month of October, 2011. Please be sure you have read and understood the guidelines completely before submitting your manuscript for consideration.

Submission details for all imprints:

In your introductory email, include your full name, contact info, name of work and genre, a short synopsis of your work, and a brief bio. Include as an attachment a brief 1-3 page synopsis and the first ten double-spaced pages of the work. Please submit all this in ONE document. This document should be double-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font and MUST include your name, full contact info and genre. Please put your name, page number and name of work on EVERY page of your submission. Do not include pictures, illustrations or any special formatting, fonts or characters in your submission. Do not submit in any other format than DOC or RTF. Suspect attachments will be deleted.

Since your submission may pass through many hands, it is imperative that you follow these guidelines or we will be forced to reject your project without reading it. Your project MUST be completed at the time of your submission.

***

Response time: 6-8 weeks

Email: send an email to mail@khpbooks.com with the subject line:

BDB submissions with no subject line or with subject lines that are suspect will likely be sent to spam heaven without being read.

***

Length: 30-100k long. Word counts are firm.

Response time: 6-8 weeks

Email: send an email to mail@khpbooks.com with the subject line:

‘SVP Submission: [name of your book] by [your name]’

What Blasphemous Books wants: all things that might be considered unholy or… blasphemous. Topics include – but are not limited to – deals with the Devil, demons, old school witchcraft or magick, and the dark side of mythology.

Length: 30-100k long. Word counts are firm.

Response time: 6-8 weeks

***

Please note: we are not interested in publishing children’s literature, chapbooks, poetry, comics/graphic novels or anything that smacks of fanfiction. We will not publish anything that infringes on another author’s universe, unless you and the author are working together and you are authorized to write the book. No short story collections.

We are looking for work that is both commercial and original, but not duplicates of what’s “hot” on the market right now. We’re afraid that with the volume of submissions we receive, books that do not follow these guidelines must be rejected without further consideration.

Who we’re looking for:

Both new and established authors. You do not need an agent to submit, but if you have one, you are welcome to have your agent submit your project for you.

What you get:

If we choose to publish your work, you will be contracted for ebook rights. You will receive 50% net royalties for every sale and your book will see distribution on Amazon, Barnes & Noble online, and elsewhere. You will never be charged any kind of fee, and you may dissolve your contract at any time and for any reason.

If you would like additional information, please contact us.
