📢 ANNOUNCEMENT 📢 I will be remaining closed to unsolicited submissions for the indeterminate future.
Stay tuned to OTLA on social and this site for updates.
One Track Literary is currently seeking completed works with vibrant, fresh voices in these genres: romance (especially romantic comedies), women's fiction with fresh hooks, thrillers and psychological suspense (no cozy mysteries please), and contemporary young adult. (Note: I am not the best fit for paranormal and fantasy, though futuristic/sci-fi/dystopian is fine.)
Only electronic submissions are accepted through Query Manager. Please click the button at the bottom of the page to use their form to submit a query letter, synopsis, and attachment of the first three chapters of your work.
Turnaround time on submissions is currently eight to twelve weeks. Please feel free to inquire again after that point to follow up.
Special preferences include (but are not limited to) these dynamics and elements:
* confident, competent, and complicated heroines *
* humorous beta heroes *
* smart and snappy banter *
* feminist themes *
* gender-role reversals *
* slow burn relationships *
Own voices stories are especially welcome.
