Siren Bookstrand: Book Submission Guidelines

Written by Emily Harstone | November 4, 2015

Siren Bookstrand is a popular publisher of romance and erotica. They only publish books that end happily ever after. They publish many  books every year and most authors seem happy with the work that the Siren Bookstrand editors do. They are primarily an electronic publisher but they also have print editions.

They are most known for publishing books about menages, and they have more than one line devoted to menages. Authors who have published more than one book with them say that the menage books sell the best. So that is something to keep in mind, if you have a book that features one. They do also publish more mainstream, traditional romance novels, but as a publisher that is not what they are known for.

All of their imprints are looking for very specific things in terms of content so read all of the guidelines for the imprints very closely.

They also have very specific guidelines in terms of content, these guidelines cover everything from sex scenes to cliffhangers and character age requirements. For example they are not interested in erotica or porn, which they define as: “sex scenes with no romantic development involving the main characters with each other. Make sure to read all these guidelines closely before submitting.

They only consider work that is longer than 20,000 words in length.

When you submit to them the subject line must read “SUBMISSION: Title of Book (total word count). Otherwise your email might be caught in their spam filter. All submissions must be made through email.
