03/08/2003 Entry: "Luna Books announced"

Harlequin has announced the name of their new Romantic SF line:

** Luna **

From eHarlequin:
"Powerful, alluring, mythic, elemental—magical.
Luna Books delivers a compelling, female-focused fantasy with vivid characters, rich worlds, strong, sympathetic women and romantic subplots.
Luna Books wants emotionally complex, sweeping stories that highlight the inner female power. Whether the heroine is on a quest to save the world—or someone or something important to her--discover her past or develop her own abilities, these stories are involving, gripping and sweep the reader away into a detailed, convincing world. They also contain romantic subplots that enhance the main story, but don’t become the focus of the novel."

Word Length: 100,000-150,000
Settings: Point of view: First, third, multiple—but predominately from the female characters
Tone:Appropriate to the story

Submissions:Detailed synopsis and three sample chapters, or complete manuscript if available. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable If a previous editorial relationship in the company has been established, that can be continued—or feel free to submit to the editors below
