Fantasy / Historical Fiction / Magical Realism / Romance / Science Fiction

Heather McCorkle, City Owl Press

We publish romance in all its incarnations (except for erotica).

I am specifically drawn to novel-length works in fantasy or sci-fi (romantic elements a must), any of the sub-genres. I would love to see a great steampunk/romance with equal attention paid to the plot as to the romance, something outside of Victorian England would be a plus. I’m a big fan of high fantasy but it must be original and very well done with romance woven in. Authors that focus strongly on character development (relatable or sympathetic in some way) and world building will be quick to catch my attention (I love great description but it must be done well and with purpose). I only consider works intended for an adult audience with heat levels all the way up to scorching, but short of erotic. Sex is okay, but not erotically graphic and it must move the story forward.

If your novel sounds like something I’m looking for, feel free to put ATTN: Heather in the subject line along with QUERY and the title of the manuscript. Copy and past (no attachments, please) the first ten pages into the body of the email after your query. Check our website to see what our other editors are looking for.
