If you’re an unpublished genre writer, check out the digital imprints owned by Big Five publishers for submission opportunities.

Four imprints owned by Penguin Random House and one imprint owned by St. Martin’s Press are seeking manuscripts in these genres: romance, mystery and thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

Random House Digital Imprints

The following Random House “e-originals” imprints are open to submissions:

Alibi specializes in mysteries and thrillers.

Flirt is looking for “provocative, edgy, and compelling new adult romances.”

Loveswept wants “passionate, heartfelt romances spanning all genres, from historical to contemporary.”

Hydra focuses on science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

St. Martin’s Digital-First Imprint

St. Martin’s Press is owned by Big Five publisher Macmillan. Swerve, St. Martin’s digital-first division, is interested in all subgenres of romance. Both agented and unagented authors are welcome to submit unpublished manuscripts.

  1. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks Cindy! I’m pitching my newest manuscript and looking for publishers. It’s amazing how volatile this field is–a third of the house I pitched to 3 years ago are gone. I hope your writing is going well.
