SUBMISSIONS EMAIL: musesubs AT gmail DOT com - addressed to Acquisition Editors
MuseItUp Publishing (parent company to MuseItHot Publishing) opened its door to writers March 2010. We follow the motto: Building the team to achieve the dream! which simply means gathering writers who understand that a 'family' of writers in a house can achieve a goal when they work together.
We welcome new and seasoned writers to send us their manuscripts. Simultaneous submissions will be accepted provided it is clearly stated in your cover letter that another publisher is considering your work. Our authors do not pay a fee to e-publish their books with us. We provide editing and cover art for all our books, and assign the ISBN to your work.
We’re interested in well-written fiction that pulls us in from the beginning, stories that surprise us at the end, characters we connect with, and scenes/settings we can visualize.
Only electronic submissions please.
We’ll acquire erotic romance in all subgenres:
Everything from: romantic comedy, contemporary, fantasy, historical, paranormal, suspense, western, Steampunk, sci-fi, time travel, f/f, m/m, ménage (with people please, no animals!!)…as long as it is spicy hot to erotic romance with a well-developed relationship.
MIH publishing is actively seeking erotic romance, whether naughty but nice, naughty and sizzling, or naughty and sizzling HOT. We would like to see well-developed stories and easily connect with your strong characters. We prefer novella lengths ranging from 15000 to 25000 words.
The sexual relationship should enhance the storyline and character development, contributing to the forward motion of the plot.
MuseItHOT Publishing is seeking romance erotica for our Short ‘N Spicey lineup. Stories can be anywhere between 3000 – 20,000 words. Please send your full ms with a short synopsis as attachments to musesubs AT gmail DOT com with Short ‘N Spicey on the subject heading. Stories can be in any genre but must include a romantic theme. Can be F/M, F/F, M/M.
Please include in your submission which of the three heat levels your story falls under:
Naughty but Nice: some graphic language and scenes
Naughty with sizzle: might include some fantasy, spanking, toys, and f/f, m/m, with several love scenes
Sizzling HOT!: explicit love scenes and language, multiple partners, same sex relationships, toys…elements that are heavier than the above heat levels.
We are an e-publishing house with the aim of publishing e-books first and print books to follow an e-book release within a year (only novel length books of 45,000 and more will be considered for print.) If print is not published within a year of the e-book release, print rights are reverted back to the author and the e-book rights are still maintained until the duration of the contract.
