Call For Submissions

Heart's Desire Press

Overall, we're fans of great storytelling, solid steamy romances, and powerful toe curling sexual tension regardless of whether the sex is on screen or behind closed doors. We're open to romantic suspense, contemporary, paranormal, and urban fantasy, but there are a few things that we would love to see cross our desk:

Everyone loves an athletic body and HDP is no exception to the rule! We crave romance that heats our blood and has us cheering like fanatics for the hero and heroine to score! Any sport will do! Football, baseball, hockey, and snowboarding are some of our favorite sports, but with summer coming up...we're dying to see a romance that features a competitive surfer!

Cowboys! Of course we've got a thing for great contemporary western romances with heart stopping cowboys. Give us a cowboy on the verge of losing everything and a heroine that can bring him to his knees.

Paranormal or urban fantasy stories that feature angels, demons, witches, vampires, shifters, or Fae steeped in edge of your seat mayhem and romance that will leave us breathless.

Military heroes! Some of us have grown up in military families and some of us are veterans. All of us are suckers for a man in uniform story.

Time travel romance captivates us. Knights, Highlanders, or Egyptian Princesses showing up in unexpected places and discovering the love of their life in another time. We believe in everlasting romance.

Please refer to the Hearts Desire Press Submission page for submission guidelines. This is an open call, there is no deadline.

We are a hybrid, royalty-paying publisher with unique offerings for authors. If you trust us with your work, and we contract it, here are some of the benefits you'll receive as an HDP author.

Monthly payments/sales reporting so you can manage your writing business

Royalty schedule that over time favors the author, not the publisher

Author choice of digital only or digital and print, provided the work is at least 50k words

Every title receives marketing/promotional support, commercial quality cover art, editing by industry professionals, formatting with premier industry design software, and will be published in a timely fashion.

Authors these days need to have their stories in more than one venue to be successful. We get that. And we're okay with it. Let us help you keep your career moving forward, in the direction YOU want it to go.
