Hi everyone! Pitch day is THIS SATURDAY – January 18, 2014 at Musetracks!!!! www.musetracks.wordpress.com. We have Alycia Tornetta, Associate Editor, Managing Editor, Bliss, from Entangled Publishing, LLC as our guest editor.
Here’s what she had to say:
I acquire for a variety of lines at Entangled, but here’s what I’m specifically looking for:
-Bliss: Small town category romance featuring every-day heroes. These are fun, flirty romances (think Hart of Dixie/Gilmore Girls/Sweet Home Alabama). Would love more cowboys, multicultural characters, and men in uniform.
-Strong contemporary single-title romance (80k+). Like Cindi Madsen’s Cinderella Screwed Me Over or Jennifer Crusie’s Bet Me.
-YA:-Contemporary (like Stephanie Perkins, Jennifer Echols, or Rainbow Rowell) and thriller/mystery–could be heists, film noir-like mystery, psychological suspense, etc. Must have a strong romantic element.
-Anything that combines genres in a unique and clever way. Think Holly Black’s Curse Worker series, Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles, or Renee Collins’ Relic.
-Angsty, sexy, addictive NA or adult romance. Give me anti-heroes, bad boys, MMA fighters, etc. Bonus points for revenge or blackmail plots.
-Male/Male. For adult romance, YA, NA, or novellas. Any heat level. I’m a big fan of Josh Lanyon, K.A. Mitchell, Kelley York, David Levithan.
