Around here, we really love Christmas stories. And it’s been a couple years since we released our own, so we’re on the hunt for a new Christmas Chick Lit novel for 2017! If you love celebrating the holidays as much as we do, and you’ve got a story to tell that will knock our socks off, we want to read it! Since we are looking for Chick Lit only that means humor is a must, and a heroine with panache will steal our hearts! Whether it’s Christmas in the City or a Hometown Holiday, we are looking for classic Chick Lit charm with leading ladies who have a lesson to learn that only the spirit of Christmas can bring. A sexy love interest always helps, too, but this story should be more focused on the woman herself and how her Christmas experience brings joy to her entire life – not just her love life. Happy endings are a must (and that doesn’t always mean the girl gets the guy). Basically, readers should finish the book with big, fat smiles on their faces. 🙂
We are seeking novels between 55,000 and 75,000 words. Please email us your query with a one to two paragraph synopsis of your story (similar to what you’d find on the back cover of a book) along with a brief bio, including any previous writing or publishing experience, as well as your contact information. Having your manuscript copyedited before submitting is HIGHLY recommended. Nothing puts us off more than rampant errant commas and typos galore. If we’re interested in reading your manuscript, we will email you with a request to see more. Please allow six weeks for a response. Submission deadline is April 1, 2017.
