About Angela and Changeling: I’m Angela Knight, a New York Times bestselling author with fifty published novels, e-books and short stories under my belt over the past 23 years. My publishers include Penguin Random House and Changeling Press, as well as Red Sage, and past publishers Loose Id and Ellora’s Cave. I’ve won a Career Achievement Award and three Critics Choice awards from Romantic Times. I’m also a teacher at Savvy Authors.
Recently I’ve added Changeling editor to my list of accomplishments. Changeling concentrates on short fiction, which is how I got started out as a romance novelist. Our lengths range from 12,000 to 30,000 words, which is a great word count if you’re either just starting out or if you need to build a readership quickly with a lot of published work. I will work closely with you to develop your idea in this pitch session.
We publish Sci-Fi/Futuristic, Dark and Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Action Adventure, BDSM, and Guilty Pleasures (Contemporary) Women’s Erotic Romance. All submissions must be targeted for at least one of these genres and must be Women’s Erotic Romance.
While there should be both highly erotic and romantic elements to the book, relationships and endings should be plot driven. We don’t demand your characters trot off to get married at the end of the book, though we do ask for a HEA(Happy Ever After) or, in the case of serials, a HFN(Happy For Now).
We’ve only got one heat level — over-the-top hot! We can handle anything you send us as long as it meets our guidelines (Content must be legal for an over 21 audience and geared toward a primarily female readership). We do not accept simultaneous submissions (An author should not send the same book to several publishers at the same time). We do accept multiple submissions (An author may send us several books at the same time).
Length:We accept submissions from 12 to 30 thousand words for single titles. Serials from unsigned authors must be submitted as a completed set.
Exclusions: What we do not do is promote illegal /barely legal activities, include incest, under age sex, rape, or anything that un-empowers women (Or men). NO still means no here.
Please Note:We’re fanatics about quality. From editors, proofreaders, and line editors to artists and marketing staff, our team of dedicated professionals is here for your support.
