Are You Looking for a Traditional #Publisher for Your Book?

Good Writing

Not everyone is interested in indie publishing his/her work, and that’s understandable. Indie publishing takes a lot of work, in some cases – a lot of money, and with no guarantees, so perhaps traditional publishing is the right choice for you. Just remember, you still want your work to shine its brightest before submitting to any publisher and I’m here to help you with that. Remember, I’ll polish it so bright, your readers will need shades.

Here are just a few of the many publishers actively seeking exciting new voices:

Avon Impulse/Avon Romance: 

Avon Impulse is the ebook division of Avon Romance and publishes the majority of new authors but once established in ebook sales, an author can progress to traditional print as well. Avon Impulse is always on the lookout for new voices, new and different romances from erotic romance to New Adult, historical to contemporary.
Avon books are sold at nearly every digital marketplace available including through Harper Collins.

If you have a completed manuscript that you think Avon would be interested in, you’ll need a query, brief synopsis, a favorite scene from your work, and the completed manuscript in any readable format. They’re not too particular about that, but standard best is 12 pt Times Roman, double-spaced with 1 inch borders. Make sure you include name, pen name, and good contact information such an active email address.

Avon Impulse is currently open for submissions and looking for:

~~ Romantic Suspense

~~ Super sexy contemporaries

~~ Trilogies—and beyond (If you have a series, they want to see it.)

~~ Historical Romance with a hook

So if you think you have what they want, submit to Avon Impulse at

Totally Entwined:  

Totally Entwined was established in 2006, and has already been successful with Totally Bound (Erotic Romance), but this year has added three new publishing houses to their already expanding business—Young Adult, Crime & Thriller, and Gay Fiction.

Totally Entwined is a royalty paying, full service traditional publisher with a full support staff, and marketing team.

They only accept electronic communication. Manuscripts and other items must be sent via e-mail attachment, as a .doc, .docx or .rtf file.
You will need to include, a detailed synopsis of your book, completed double-spaced manuscript formatted in standard 12 pt, and Book Antiqua is preferred.

Include your name, pen name and contact e-mail in the Query Letter and Synopsis.

They are looking for several different lengths, genres, and if your story is really hot—all the better. So go for it, and if you think, you have what they’re looking for check out the submission guidelines for Totally Entwined at

Calderwood Books:

Calderwood Books is an ebook publisher, first started in 2007. They do have print on demand versions available for some books. Most ebook publishers these days focus on Romance only, but Calderwood Books has a much broader approach. They publish most genre work except for erotica, and are especially interested in cross genre work, which doesn’t necessarily fit into an established market.

Their slogan is: Good Readers Deserve Good Books.

It’s a small company run by only three people, but they have been around for a while now and are firmly established. Their books are available in most major digital marketplaces.

Calderwood Books is currently open for submissions. There is not listed deadline for when they’ll close so I advise keeping an eye on them and if you’re interested in submitting, do it soon.

To submit, send Calderwood Books an email with the word ‘query’ in the subject line, a cover letter, a bio, and a short and concise synopsis of your book. As with many publishers, they prefer you don’t send attachments so put only what is requested in your email. That also means they prefer you do NOT send sample chapters or full manuscripts. They’ll ask you for more if they’re interested.

Their guidelines don’t mention word limits, but most of the books published by them are on the shorter side, which seems to becoming somewhat the norm for some publishers of ebooks.
