Publisher Spotlight: Avon Romance Back to Blog

Avon is open to submissions; specifically, Avon wants historical romance (100,000 words), contemporary romance (100,000 words) and African-American romance (90,000 words).

To query Avon, you should prepare an overview of your book–no more than 2 pages–and email it to: Their turnaround time on e-queries is currently listed as one to two weeks (pretty impressive!).

Avon has a lovely set of guidelines for their would-be writers. They seem to be looking for all sorts of stories–romantic suspenses, dramas, funny tales…the field appears to be wide open.

Here are a few of Avon’s recent releases:

Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor
What Price Love? by Stephanie Laurens
Sighs Matter by Marianne Stillings

    One of the few publishing houses actively looking for Historicals.
    Don’t write them myself but I love reading them!
    I’m sending this link to a few of my friends!

    Glad I could help, Kim! And if any of your friends write historical erotic romance, I know Red Sage Publishing is always looking for novellas!
