Do you write #ownvoices #diverse stories? Do you think you have what it takes to be a huge success if only the right publisher/editor would get behind you? Or are you already a success but would love to work with Entangled next?
Liz Pelletier, publisher and editor at Entangled Publishing, is specifically looking to fill open slots in her personal editorial catalog for 2020 with #ownvoices authors and books. And if your work isn't a good fit for her, she'll forward your submission on to a team member who might be looking for just your book.
Liz is specifically looking for books by authors of color.
She's wanting books in any genre Entangled publishes, from young adult to adult romance to mainstream thrillers (little to no romance).
Agented and un-agented submissions welcome. If you're an author with a solid track, please feel free to submit standard proposal (first three chapters or writing sample and brief synopsis) instead of a full manuscript. All other submissions must be full manuscript attached.
Liz has a tight schedule and wants to give every submission her personal attention, so please allow up to 6-8 weeks for a response. However, she will respond to each submission. If she passes, she'll still try to give constructive feedback to hopefully help turn that no into a yes some day, so please submit!
If you work with another editor at Entangled, please feel free to also submit to this call. Liz has offered to arm wrestle your current editor if she loves your submission. ; )
