Inkspell Publishing is looking for category romance novels, priced under $4.99 or under and sold digitally and in print (Print runs are not a guarantee. Authors will need to refer individual contract) with specific selling market targets in order to move into the print market.
We are looking for three specific types of stories but all our stories remain centered on romance and relationships.
Contemporary Romance: We’re looking for modern stories centered on strong women who face and overcome the challenges of today with a smile. These should be adult women of age over 18 and can range from being humorous to snarky. The emphasis should be on fast-paced romance and we expect it to be dialogue-heavy.
Spicy Romances: We are also looking for a steamier read. These sizzling stories continue to focus on love and relationships but with a more sensual nature. These stories feature more fast-paced, intense dialogue and electrifying sexual tension as well as contain some more graphic descriptions of what goes on behind the bedroom doors. Please note, we are not looking for erotica. Only a steamier read.
Contemporary Young Adult Romances: Young adult romances are a staple for Inkspell Publishing and we would like to continue to showcase stories that feature young adult women and men as they learn about themselves, the world around them, and begin to experience love. These stories must focus on the relationship between the young lady and man as they experiment with what love is and how to handle those feelings in mature social situations.
Specifically, we want:
