Write Romance for Adams Media
Adams Media Romance Guidelines
A new direct-to-ebook romance imprint is launching soon! Adams Media is open to romance submissions in five popular subgenres: romantic suspense, contemporary, paranormal, historical, and erotic romance.
Within those subgenres, editors are pretty flexible about what happens. It's romance, so there must be a happily-ever-after, but this publisher is open to how your characters get there.
"You won't come up against preconceived ideas about what can or can't happen in romance or what kind of characters you can or can't have," says Jennifer Lawler, editor. "Our only rule is everyone has to be a consenting adult. Other than that, we're looking for smart, savvy heroines, fresh voices, and new takes on old favorite themes."
The publisher is looking for full-length novels, and while they prefer to work on the shorter end of the spectrum (50,000 words, give or take), they are not going to rule you out because you go shorter or longer.
If you have a finished novel for submission, please just drop editor Jennifer Lawler a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief description of your work (no attachments)
