Tor editor Anna Genoese has released the guidelines for submissions to the new Tor Paranormal Romance imprint. Looks promising ...
Proposal Guidelines for TOR ROMANCE
Tor Books is actively seeking well-written novel-length stories, focusing on both plot and character development. All submissions, no matter which of the following subcategories they fall into, must include paranormal elements (emphasis Genoese).
These are the subcategories we are looking for under the general heading of "paranormal romance":
(a) plausible science fiction
(c) horror / otherworldly beings (i.e., vampires, goblins, faeries, ghosts, banshees, skinwalkers, zombies, golem, etc.)
(d) near-future / speculative fiction
(e) non-standard time travel
As Tor Books is an award-winning, world-renowed science fiction and fantasy publisher, please be advised that submissions in those areas will be held to our usual standards for plausibility, world-building, character development, and the various elements that comprise these genres.
We are not looking for:
(a) fluffy comedies
(b) inspirational religious
(c) traditional/typical stories in which a ghost or an angel falls in love with a human (or vice versa); if you plan on using this plot, please come at it from a fresh and original angle
(d) traditional/category romance
Each novel should include at least two main plot elements: one, the romance and the conflict inherent in that; two, another significant conflict. Both storylines should be crucial to the overall novel, and the romantic elements should make up no more than half the entire story.
We are open to non-traditional romances (i.e., multi-racial, multi-ethnic, multi-spiritual, homosexual, etc.), as well as traditional ones. We are open to very erotic works as well as less graphic ones; in any work the sex and romance should be believable and rational and well-suited to the story.
