We accept both agented and unagented submissions.
Q: What’s the difference between a category romance and single-title romance?
A: Category romances are generally stripped down to the core romance. They’re shorter (45k-65k), trope-driven, and often follow a set of “rules” dictated by the imprint/line on which they’re published.
Single-title romances have a longer word count (75k-100k, on average), more secondary characters, subplots, and are the kind of books you’ll linger over and savor—not just because of the longer word count, but because of the emotional depth, and rich world-building.
Q. Amara is a "single-title" romance imprint. Do you consider series?
A: "Single-title" is a publishing term for standard-length (75k-100k, on average) fiction novels. We enjoy connected books with series potential!
