This form is used to submit finished novels or novellas to Blushing Books. This form is to be used by new authors who have had FEWER THAN THREE books accepted by Blushing. If you have had THREE OR MORE books accepted by Blushing, we have a different form for you to use. Please return to the submission page and click on the "established author" form.
Blushing responds to authors very quickly; for this reason, we do not accept simultaneous submissions - books submitted simultaneously to another publisher. If your work has been submitted elsewhere, please do not submit it via this form.
Please note that we have recently upped our minimum word count on submissions to 30,000 words. We will accept related novellas submitted together, as long as the minimum length on each is 15K and the total length of the submission is more than 30K. We apologize for any inconvenience that this might cause, but the market has changed such that it is difficult for us to sell material shorter than 30K.
Please review the following guidelines for books that we are unlikely to publish:
-Any story told from a male point of view. The main character must be female and the story told primarily from her point of view.
-Books containing angels, demons, shifters, werewolves, or vampires as main characters.
-Books set in ancient times (ancient Egypt, etc.)
-Any books that contain gods or goddeses or are based primarily on mythology.
-Transgender, M/M or F/F titles. (We are now publishing M/M and F/F material through our affiliated publisher Blackout Books. Check it out at blackoutbooks.com)
-Any historical title set after 1930 (This means we are not looking at Depression, World War II or more recent at this time.)
-Any book which uses first person present tense in the primary action. Short diary or journal entries or letters which use first person present are acceptable.
-Books that are not primarily romances with a happily ever after ending.
