Liquid Silver Books Submission Guidelines
Liquid Silver Books Submission Calls

General Information:

  • Currently accepting all romance genres and romance subgenres.
  • Romance must be the main focus of your story.
  • The story must have well developed characters with depth that entice the reader to like and/or identify with them.
  • In general terms, our books follow the meeting and beginning of a romance and then the struggles of putting lives together into a long term relationship. While it doesn’t have to be a “Happily Ever After” ending, the characters should at least be settling in to a “Happy For Now” ending, so there is some sort of emotional satisfaction on the part of the reader.
  • Manuscripts (MS) with obvious grammar, formatting, and editing issues will not be considered.
  • Manuscripts should be critiqued and polished prior to submitting.
