Last Chapter Press is currently open to submissions for short stories, novellas, full-length novels, and multi-author collaborations and series.
Currently seeking romance in the following sub genres: Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy, and Romantic Suspense.
We are interested in romance stories filled with emotional connection, engaging plotlines, strong conflicts, notable tropes, vivid characters, a spice level of no more than a 4 out of 5, and always a happily ever after.
Special considerations will be made for submissions that are developed as a series and not a stand alone.
❌ No pseudo incest, infidelity, bestiality, rape (even as titillation), necrophilia, pedophilia, underage sex, or depraved acts (i.e. masturbatory voyeurism), cheating, and cliffhangers.
