Carina Press has made two big calls for submissions recently. Carina is the digital first imprint from Harlequin. They publish books in a wide variety of fiction genres including contemporary romance, steampunk, erotic romance, gay/lesbian fiction, mystery, science-fiction, and fantasy, among others.
In the past, Carina has required a completed manuscript and a detailed synopsis for submission. Recently, Carina announced their first-ever call for proposals. If your book meets a few important criteria, you could be in luck, but hurry! The deadline is July 13th and there are a few conditions:
- Your book must fall in a genre that Carina editors are interested in acquiring.
- Your book must be a completely new work and may not be previously published in any way.
- Your book must not have been passed on by Carina editors in the past.
That’s it, so what are you waiting for? Submit your proposal today!
