Please tell editors/publishers you read their guidelines on the
Erotica Readers & Writers Association Website
www.erotica-readers.com


Avan imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Want to be an Avon writer? Follow these easy guidelines and you’re one step closer to making your dreams come true.

Avon is looking for stories of emotional complexity, written by authors with unique voices. Books with humor, drama, suspense; with sizzling sensuality and irresistible characters—all types and tones can be right for Avon. If your manuscript is exciting, electrifying, and exceptional then we want to see it. Take us to the darkest depths or make us laugh out loud—everything is welcome!

We’re actively seeking all genres of romance of all lengths, including (but not limited to): historical, paranormal, contemporary, and erotica.

How To Submit A Manuscript
To submit, go to AvonImpulse.com and follow the instructions to fill out the form and upload your manuscript. Due to time constraints, we will not be able to respond to every query. If you do not receive a response after three months, that means your story is not right for us at that time. However, times change, so keep trying!

Genres:
Gothic
Steampunk
Shifter
Vampire
Ghost
Magical
Futuristic
Time Travel
Western
Small Town
Suspense

Submissions FAQ
How long does my book need to be?
We are looking for stories of all lengths, from short stories to full length books, and anything inbetween.

What font/margin/size should I use?
Your formatting choices are up to you. As long as your manuscript is readable, it’s acceptable.

Which editor should I address my submission to?
There is no need to specify an editor. However, if you have a past relationship with someone on the Avon team, or one of our editors specifically requested you submit your manuscript, please note that on the submission form.

Do I need to specify which Avon imprint I am submitting to?
No, all submissions are vetted by the same team of Avon editors, who will decide which imprint is the best fit.

How long will you take to respond?
Due to the volume of submissions, we will only be able to contact you if your project is the right fit. If you have not received a response in three months time, unfortunately your project wasn’t right for our current list.

Can I still submit to the avonromance@harpercollins.com email address?
No, please go here.

Will you accept manuscript even if the subgenre isn’t listed?
Yes, on the submission form, choose “other” and write in your subgenre.

I’m an agent. Should I use this to submit my client’s manuscript?
No, this submission form is for authors only. Agents should pitch and submit projects in the usual fashion.
