Desert Breeze Opens to Submissions!

Submissions are open at Desert Breeze Publishing! We are seeking manuscripts to fill our fall and holiday 2011 release schedule. At Desert Breeze Publishing, Inc., we are seeking manuscripts from novella length (between 30,000 and 35,000 words approximately) to super novel length (exceeding 100,000 words), with a preference for novels between 65,000 and 90,000 words. We are more than willing to accept queries on book series, and will consider a series concept when at least one book is completed and the series
has been thoroughly formulated. We are also willing to look at rereleases as long as proof of release can be provided and the author can submit new work as well.

We are looking for submissions in all of the following romance sub-genres:

Contemporary Romance
Romantic Suspense
Romantic Comedy/Humorous Romance
Inspirational/Christian Romance -
Both Traditional Christian Romance and Edgier Christian Romance
Fantasy Romance
Paranormal Romance
Time Travel Romance
Science Fiction Romance/Futuristic Romance/Speculative Fiction Romance (emphasis mine)
Steampunk Romance
Urban Fantasy Romance
Modern Cowboy Romance
20th Century Historical Romance (1901 through the Viet Nam War)
Historical Romance (Prior to the 1900's)
YA Romance in all sub genres

We love romance, and we love happy endings. Now, a happy ending doesn't have to be wedding bells and proposals -- but leave us no doubt that your hero and heroine could easily ride off into the sunset together.

We are specifically looking to add some holiday themed books to our November and December 2011 release schedule. Books can be between 25k and 100k, and can focus either heavily on a holiday, or have the holiday as a backdrop theme. You can write around Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year...
And books can be in any genre listed.

  1. Thank you, Gail, for letting us know you're open to SFR submissions.

    We have at least three Brigaders published with Desert Breeze.

    Also wanted to mention to members that Desert Breeze was voted one of the most SFR-friendly e-publishers, holding the lead for a good portion of our voting last week and finishing in the #2 spot by a nose!
