Entangled Publishing's Wish List and Call for Submissions



Here's what Entangled Publishing is looking for.

Besides the regular submissions, they are looking to fill two anthologies:

A Superhero Anthology

We love superheroes. Whether they’re fighting crime, saving wayward heroines (and heroes!), or just fighting to stay alive in a world where superpowers aren’t tolerated, people with extraordinary abilities are hot. And with the onslaught of movies like Thor, X-Men, Captain America, Ironman, Green Lantern, Batman, and Spiderman, and TV shows like Smallville and Heroes propelling reader interest, superhero books have rocketed to the top of many Must Read lists. Ours included.

Entangled Publishing is seeking submissions for an early Spring 2012 Superhero anthology. Submissions must:

* Be 20,000 to 30,000 words in length
* Contain strong romantic elements
* Revolve around characters with superpowers

All heat levels will be accepted, but erotic elements must not be the main focus of the story.

Previously published material will not be considered, nor will manuscripts that have already been rejected by Entangled at an earlier date.

Manuscripts that have been chosen for the anthology will be released as ebooks in early Spring 2012, but will be combined for a Fall 2012 print release.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, please send the full manuscript (RTF format) and a on-page query letter briefly describing the premise, heat level, and word count to submissions(at)entangledpublishing(dot)com. Please include “Superhero Anthology” and your title in the subject line. Query letters should be addressed to Liz Pelletier.

Submissions are open until November 1st and final decision will be made by November 15th. Standard Entangled Publishing royalty rates apply.


And


A Steampunk Anthology



Will Smith, Jude Law, Robert Downey Jr., Hugh Jackman, and Sean Connery have done fabulous things for the sexiness of steampunk. Even when quirky technology is merely hinted at in alternate, historical-feeling world, moviegoers have clamored for more. Whether they’re donning brass goggles, lacing up steel corsets, or hopping onto the nearest airship, the heroes and heroines in steampunk fiction have captured the minds of readers.

Entangled Publishing is seeking submissions for a Summer 2012 Steampunk anthology. Submissions must:

* Be 20,000 to 30,000 words in length
* Contain strong romantic elements
* Heavily feature steampunk technology and the alternate world it exists in

All heat levels will be accepted, but erotic elements must not be the main focus of the story.

Previously published material will not be considered, nor will manuscripts that have already been rejected by Entangled at an earlier date.

Manuscripts that have been chosen for the anthology will be released as ebooks in early Summer 2012, but will be combined for a Winter 2012 print release.

To submit a manuscript for consideration, please send the full manuscript (RTF format) and a on-page query letter briefly describing the premise, heat level, and word count to submissions(at)entangledpublishing(dot)com. Please include “Steampunk Anthology” and your title in the subject line. Query letters should be addressed to Liz Pelletier.

Submissions are open until December 1st and final decision will be made by December 15th. Standard Entangled Publishing royalty rates apply.

Those sound like fun to read. (I don't write them.)

PS: I changed my URL and username back to southpaw, but managed to mess up my feeds.
