Please use this form to submit titles for publication to Blackout Books.
 
Blackout Books accepts books across the LGBT spectrum.  We are looking for books across all genres (thrillers, suspense, science fiction, paranormal, historicals) which contain a romantic (and usually erotic) relationship as an underpinning to the story.  Books that are primariily erotic "romps" (one sexual scene following another, with a plot that is nothing but a vehicle to move from one sex scene to the next) are unlikely to be accepted.
 
Blackout Books 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.  
 
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.  
 
Please review the following guidelines for books that we are unlikely to publish:
-Any story that has any one under the age of eighteen involved in sexual activity.
-Any books that contain gods or goddeses or are based primarily on mythology.
-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.
