Meet ShoreIndie Editor Rebecca Heyman
For ShoreIndie 2017, Becca is excited to receive submissions that fit the following MSWL:
For both adult and YA audiences, I'm looking for urban/contemporary fantasy (no high fantasy); historical fiction/historical romance; contemporary romance with strong female heroines and lots of consensual sexiness (no badly portrayed "dom" men who don't actually understand sub/dom culture, please and thank you); adult commercial fiction; and contemporary YA. I am particularly interested in the compassionate representation of mental illness, LGBTQ+, and underrepresented identities/cultures that reflect an author's reality.
Manuscript word count MUST be at or below 90k words for consideration -- I will automatically reject anything over 90k, no exceptions.
If your manuscript opens with a character waking up, or relies heavily on amnesia/forgotten memories/nightmares, please DO NOT send it to me.
Follow Becca on Twitter, check out her Website and her writers' conference, The Work Conference, and ask her all your questions during her #ShoreIndie #AskEditor sessions on Monday, May 29th at 8pm ET and Wednesday, May 31st at 8pm ET.
