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 35,000 words. 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. We also prefer works which are shorter than 100,000 words.
Please review the following guidelines for books that we are unlikely to publish:
-Any story told from solely a male point of view. The main character must be female and the story told primarily from her point of view, although alternating points of view from the hero and heroine are fine.
-Books containing angels, witches, fairies or vampires as main characters, or elements of magic, druidism etc.
-Books set in ancient times (ancient Egypt, Rome etc.)
-Any books that contain gods or goddesses or are based primarily on mythology.
-Transgender, M/M or F/F titles. MFM Menage or reverse harem are fine.
-Any historical title set after 1930 (This means we are not looking at Depression, World War II or more recent at this time. This includes stories set anytime between the 1970s and now.)
-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.
-Books in which either main character cheats (emotionally or physically) on the other.
-Books which have been previously published on Amazon within the last two years.
-Books which contain little or no power exchange.
*** Please note that it is extremely unprofessional to publicly post intentions to submit or to discuss acceptance or rejection specifics on Facebook/other social media forums. Email correspondence between Blushing Books and authors must remain confidential. We reserve the right not to do business with those who cannot maintain this basic level of professionalism. ***
