New Blooms in the Garden - Open for Submissions
I am very excited to announce that there are going to be some exciting changes for The Wild Rose Press this year.
But first - Happy New Year! I sincerely hope each and every one of you have a prosperous, healthy and happy 2013. The staff at The Wild Rose Press is eager to team with you as we enter our 7th year in business and we are thankful each day that we get to be here with all of you in this wonderful garden of roses!
Okay so the big news. (hear drum roll in the background....). The Wild Rose Press is going to accept queries this year from a few genres that aren't romance!
I know I know. You are stunned. So are we. But after all these years we feel we are ready to stretch our limbs out a bit. Beginning immediately, we will accept submissions for the following genres:
erotica (Scarlet Rose of course)
Mystery/Suspense - Crimson Rose Line
Women's Fiction - Falling into whatever line it fits depending on heat level and content
We will also explore the possibility of other genres on a case by case basis but we are not opening up to others completely at this time.
Of course our main business model is still romance and that is where the biggest focus will be but it is time to try our hand in some other areas as well.
We are working on the updating the submission guidelines on the website but the process remains the same. Unless you are already an author with us, you submit a query and a synopsis to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you are all as excited about this new information as we are. Please feel free to share this news with your writing groups, etc. and to repost as you see fit.
