Paranormal Romance Markets?

more animals

I woke up in the middle of a dream about Javier :(

So I don't know how long this book is going to be. I know it needs to be 85,000 words for most places, but in case it isn't....where can it go? The vamps are bad guys, my hero is a hunter, so that leaves Nocturne out. Kensington? Dorchester? Who takes short paranormals? Last night, when I was reading through it between PHONE CALLS - so no NCIS or Mentalist for me - I found a place where I can start expanding, but don't know if it will be enough.

This is my favorite Jared picture EVER.

Sourcebooks takes 90,000 words ---
their submission guidelines are here.

LASR has reviewed several of their books, and they are well-written, well-edited and well promoted, and marketed in places like Target, as well as bookstores.

Just a thought! I'd never heard of them until LASR, so am spreading the word.

Good luck!

How short are you expecting it could be?

For actual word count, some houses like Bantam will take as low as 70k, though I can't swear that's true with mass market romance--it might only apply to books that work for trade format.

My favorite Jared pic, too!!!

I sent Surface to Sourcebooks. I don't think this book will make 90,000 words, though!

I'm thinking I'll be lucky to make 75,000 words. But I haven't reread the whole thing. I may find more places to expand. I took out the brother aspect so it wasn't so much like SPN, and I lost some words there :( Some good words, too.
