CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Call for specific Short Reads
(Sub any time. Available in digital-e-book format only)
Holiday stories for the following holidays:
"Chic Lit/Hen Lit" Shorts"
Whoever said chic lit was 'dead' in the water was wrong. Readers love this genre and Melange is actively seeking short stories to publish and sell as e-books for .99 each. Chick lit is fiction which addresses issues of modern womanhood in a humorous and light-hearted way. Although it sometimes includes romantic elements, chick lit is generally not considered a direct subcategory of the romance novel genre, because the heroine's relationship with her family or friends is often just as important as her romantic relationships.
Stories should be between 9,000-20,000 words
Submission Manuscript Requirements
For all submissions

Be aware. Melange publishes erotica, not porn. Know the difference. We do not accept any defaming and nauseating things such as incest, underage characters in illegal and immoral situations, or anything non-consensual or of a violently graphic nature.
Please include heat level: Sweet, Sensual, Hot, Scorching
Shorts are published in e-book format only-under 60,000 words, unless included within an anthology, which are available in print format.
Print works are 60,000 words and above.
Please send only first three chapters of a novel, novella or complete short story if under 15,000 words. Also send a short 25-50 word blurb and a short synopsis of your story or novel. If any manuscript does not adhere to these guidelines, we will not read it, but will reject. We love working with both new and established authors.
