Loveswept, Alibi, Hydra (science fiction, fantasy, and horror) and Flirt invite queries for submissions in romance, new adult, mystery/detective, suspense/thriller, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. There is no strict word count limit for submissions. We are interested in short content (customarily between 15,000 and 30,000 words) and full-length works (customarily between 40,000 and 60,000 words).
You may present any manuscript in which you control exclusive copyright. They are open to previously-published manuscripts as long as the submitting author now controls all electronic and print publishing rights.
Please submit the entire horror query form at the link below. If they are interested in considering your full manuscript, you will be contacted with further submission instructions. They make every effort to respond to submission inquiries within 2-4 weeks after submission of the submission query form; please do not resubmit previously submitted queries, as this may create delays.
They offer writers a complete publishing package: editing by Random House editors, a publicist and marketing team dedicated to digital publication, review copies for bloggers/reviewers to help build buzz and excitement prior to publication, exciting cover art, a comprehensive marketing and advertising budget targeted to digital readership, as well as social media tools and training opportunities and an experienced digital sales team. Each title will be assigned to an individual Random House editor and will benefit from the unparalleled expertise of Random House’s editorial, marketing, publicity, and sales teams.
