Evernight Teen seeks YA books and Evernight for adults seeks short erotic romance

X5 by Diana Stager, who many of you will  
know from the Thurs evening class in 
Georgetown. Available from Evernight
Teen  here. Evernight Teen will also be 
publishing a YA fantasy novel by Susan 
Thomas from the Thurs evening class
Evernight is an e-publisher of romance, erotic romance and urban fantasy. It’s recently launched a new imprint, Evernight Teen, for YA books, available in both e-book and print formats. They’re actively looking for new authors.

Here’s what they have to say:
Evernight is seeking fresh teen fiction that is raw, gritty, and real. We want teen romance, coming of age stories, and cutting edge fiction that today's young adults can relate to. The stories should have real issues, a strong emotional punch, and a plot to keep the reader turning the pages.

Evernight Teen will cater to the 14-plus age market, so we will not accept books intended for an adult, child, or the middle-school market. Main characters are ideally between the ages of 16 and 21.

We are currently accepting completed manuscripts of 25,000 to 100,000 words in all sub-genres of young adult fiction. Your book should be thoroughly edited before submitting.  No head-hopping. No incest. No sex between adults and children.

Authors earn 45% gross royalties from sales off our website and  45% net royalties from our distributors.  

Send a query, blurb, and full manuscript. Submission details here.

Romance on the Go is a multi-author series unique to Evernight Publishing. Our readers have busy lives. Sometimes there just isn't enough time to engage in a novel but an escape into romance is still desired. We want to offer our readers a collection of short stories that can be read during work breaks, on the bus, in the waiting room, or before bed. These stories should be memorable, with romance to make them sigh and sex scenes to make them flush.
Stories should be between 8,000-12,000 words. Heat level 2+ with a HEA or HFN ending.
All sub-genres of erotic romance accepted. Please include "Romance on the Go Submission" in the subject line when submitting.
