Submission Guidelines

Red Hot Romance is always looking for well-written work from both new and established authors. Here is a list of the criteria to look at before you submit a story:

  • Is there kink of some form in the book?
    • If the answer is yes, then your book is exactly what we’re looking for! We have books all over the kink spectrum from spanking to hardcore BDSM, from romance to erotic romance. We are not accepting erotica at this time.
  • What is the minimum book length that RHR will consider?
    • Minimum 35k, unless you’re taking part in a scheduled RHR anthology.
  • Is the book finished?
    • If yes, then absolutely! We don’t take unfinished works.
  • But what if the book is incomplete, but is meant as a Vella submission?
    • The book still needs to be complete so it can be fully edited.
  • Does Red Hot Romance work with new authors?
    • Of course! The book doesn’t have to be perfect, so long as it’s well-written.
  • How do I submit a book?
    • Send your finished manuscript to us at: with your author name and title in the subject line and the following information in the email. Manuscripts must have gone through a self edit before submission.
    • Book Title and if relevant, series title and number
    • Word Count, and chapter count
    • Genre and subgenre
  • What if I need to get in contact with someone at the publishing house?

Thank you for your interest.

We look forward to talking to you soon!
