|HOW TO SUBMIT TO RESPLENDENCE
We are currently accepting original stories in all genres, and have posted several open calls for 2014-15. Please visit our Open Calls page for additional information.
If you choose to submit a story for consideration, please send a query letter (in the body of an email) including your contact information, a brief summary of your story, and any pertinent publishing credits. Include information on your novel’s length and sensuality level. Attach a synopsis and first three chapters of your manuscript to your query and send it to . Please do not send a full manuscript unless it is requested.
Direct any inquiries or questions regarding your submission to Michele at . Be sure to add to your e-mail address book so our response to your query does not go to your spam folder.
Response times vary depending on the volume of queries, but we encourage you to send us a follow up email if you do not hear from us within 12 (twelve) weeks.
We are highly selective in what we publish and encourage you to submit only your best work. Currently our acceptance rate is less than 1%.
All submissions should be error-free. Be sure to eliminate info-dumps which slow pacing, passive voice, cardboard characters and clichés. Stories must be original, well-written, well-paced and feature interesting, likable characters. We are looking for stories that captivate us and transport us, books we can’t put down no matter how late it is and what time the alarm is set to go off in the morning.
