Submissions Now: Vanilla Heart Publishing

I'm running some calls for submissions over the next few weeks. I've already told you about John Hunt publishing calls for submissions. They have a huge range of imprints, so no matter what your chosen genre is, they may have something suitable for your work.

This week I want to focus on Vanilla Heart Publishing. They're an American independent publisher interested in romantic suspense, mystery, thrillers, fantasy etc.
In my opinion, Vanilla Heart Publishing is a house that isn't completely traditional (they're certainly not vanity). However, I believe that if they choose to publish your book, it will be start-up you were looking for to kick-start your writing career. They claim to give higher-than-normal royalties, so that's a great start. They also edit and help with marketing - another plus to the struggling writer.

They require a query letter to be submitted first, so don't submit your manuscript just yet. This is what they say on their website:

We do not accept unsolicited submissions. We require a query first, and if we are intrigued by your query we will request the first three chapters of your polished, completed manuscript. After reviewing these chapters, the acquisitions team may elect to request a full manuscript.
All selected manuscripts will receive an easy to read and understand industry standard publishing contract with what we believe are higher than average royalties for the publishing industry. Each contract is individually tailored to the unique author and subject of the book based on the genre, writing style, and marketability of the book.

If you'd like to make a submission to Vanilla Heart publishing, go to this page to check out their guidelines. In the meantime, while you're waiting for your acceptance letter,  I've got a collection of paid writing jobs on this page. If you'd like to make your submission to this publisher or found this post useful, please share it on your social networking sites so other authors can benefit too. Thank you.

Thanks Icy.

@Momto8blog, we all are on a learning curve. We learn a little at a time. I'm sure you know a lot more than you realise.
