If you’re thinking about submitting to Curiosity Quills, before reading our Submission Guidelines, check out what our Acquisitions Editors are looking for, so you know if your manuscript is more likely to hit the spot!
Managing Partner and Acquisitions Editor Lisa Gus is looking for historical, contemporary romance, unique retellings / steampunk, and alternate history. In particular, she wants to see submissions with Asian and ancient history-inspired mythologies.
VP of Operations, Andrew Buckley, is seeking quirky humour, gripping urban fantasy with a twist, horror that has nothing to do with vampires/werewolves/zombies, and a great sci-fi yarn that makes me want to see it as a movie.
Acquisitions Editor Alison Heller is looking for adult and new adult fiction with a twist. The twist could be the POV, the setting, a not-so-happy ending, an unexpected love interest or whatever you decide. She prefers SF/F, magical realism, paranormal, urban fantasy and romance (all heat levels) - pretty much anything except horror.
Acquisitions editor Vicki Keire is looking for all sub genres of romance. She would love to see adult and YA contemporary romances with exotic settings, GLBT elements, and non-standard heroes. She’d also love to get her hands on a twisty Sci Fi that’s about 40-60% romance.
Acquisitions Editor Kathleen Kubasiak is interested in all things YA and MG. She has a life-long weakness for fantasy, historical romance (particularly when set in the Regency era), and unique fairy-tale retellings. She is also currently looking for contemporary fiction, especially mysteries and crime novels.
