SUBMISSIONS

Thorned Heart Press is currently accepting manuscripts!

What are we looking for? Specifically erotica or romance with plot. This means we will read your manuscript if it is unique and creative, but must not be repeated sex scenes. We are especially excited to read dynamic, detailed, and vivid characters that not only change and develop over the course of the novel but also inspire and change others.
