Publisher Spotlight: Avon Romance Back to Blog
Avon is open to submissions; specifically, Avon wants historical romance (100,000 words), contemporary romance (100,000 words) and African-American romance (90,000 words).
To query Avon, you should prepare an overview of your book–no more than 2 pages–and email it to: email@example.com. Their turnaround time on e-queries is currently listed as one to two weeks (pretty impressive!).
Avon has a lovely set of guidelines for their would-be writers. They seem to be looking for all sorts of stories–romantic suspenses, dramas, funny tales…the field appears to be wide open.
Here are a few of Avon’s recent releases:
Sword of Darkness by Kinley MacGregor
What Price Love? by Stephanie Laurens
Sighs Matter by Marianne Stillings
