Changing Tides is currently looking for romance and erotic romance in any subgenre and at any heat level.

Our ideal projects are: prolific erotic romance authors who can release multiple short titles a year, or sweeping epic love stories that itch to be told in multi-book format. We accept both agented and un-agented submissions.

We would love to see paranormal, comedy, cowboys, mystery cozies, bad boys, billionaires, sports romance, BDSM, LGBTQ, strong heroines, alpha males, workplace romance, shifters, space operas, and everything in between. If your manuscript does not fall into one of these categories but you still think it’s something we would be interested in, please feel free to send it in.

Current special interests include Race Car Romance, Baseball Romance, Vampires, and Shifter Romance.

We do not accept stories that contain rape, incest, bestiality, pedophilia, necrophilia, or graphic gore.  We do not accept stories that don’t have a HEA or HFN ending, unless it’s a series with cliffhangers that ultimately end with a HEA. We are not looking for non-fiction, memoirs, or poetry.

Here’s how we rate our heat levels:

1-Flame Sweet/No sex

2-Flames Sensual/Petting & sex behind closed doors

3-Flames Steamy/Heavier foreplay, actual sex is downplayed

4-Flames Spicy/Graphic sex, not quite erotic romance

5-Flames Scalding/Sex is the driving force or is essential to the story (these are considered erotic romance or erotica)

How to submit:

Please send us your complete manuscript to submissions@changingtidespublishing.com

**Please note that we do not accept attachments!**

  • A brief synopsis of your book in two paragraphs or less, your word count, and any previous publishing accomplishments.
  • Please copy and paste the first 15 pages of your manuscript in the body of the email. Please make sure your manuscript is 1.5 line spacing, 12pt. font size, serif font, .5 first line indents, and in black font.

  • Please review your submission and pre-edit your work prior to sending it.

For Previously Self-published Works: We will only consider previously self-published work if your submission includes a new book in the series. For example: Book 1 could have been self-published, but now you have Book 2 completed and you would like to submit them as a series to our publishing house. Please include information in your submission of when you first released book one in your series, your average monthly sales or downloads, and why you are looking to move from self-published to our publishing house. Also include information regarding your author branding such as email subscribers, social media followers, and any other relevant information.

**Please allow us six to eight weeks to get back with you.  You will receive an email from us after we’ve reviewed your submission.**
