Warm beaches. Sunshine. Music. Parks. Cozy bookstore nooks. People out in droves looking for “their love”—but everybody knows “Summer Lovin’ is a Fool’s Game.”
Mischief Corner Books is looking for fun, quirky protagonists in need of a little lovin’. People who haven’t had the greatest luck in love and think it’s left them behind. A story with mischief, some laughs, and a little pick-me-up for downtrodden hearts.
Deadline for submissions: End of day March 31st, 2019
Publication of the stories will occur August 2019.
Story lengths that will be considered are:
Novelette: 15K – 20K
Novella: 20K – 39K
Novel: 40K – 65K
Stories that are off the beaten-track, diverse characters, and are a positive representation of queer culture will be prioritized. We want a well constructed story with a solid plot. It must have a HFN or HEA ending. All pairings/poly groups from the SGM spectrum will be considered. All genres welcomed, but no erotica please.
No simultaneous submissions, please, or submissions of stories currently carried or soon to be released with other publishers. This also includes previously published stories; only new stories will be considered. In addition, please do not send in multiple stories at once. Give us a chance to read your submission then send in your next one once we’ve gotten back to you.
Submissions will be royalty paying contracts with their own individual covers. Stories above the novel word limit must be exceptional for us to consider them.
