We publish inspirational romance. Our delight is to bring readers more stories from their favorite best-selling and award-winning authors as well as introducing them to enchanting new voices. We consider ourselves a boutique publisher with a digital-first focus. We love working with authors looking to expand their readership and bring readers new stories and timeless favorites.
Serenade Books loves stories that stay with the reader long past the book’s end. We love romance and the beauty of happily-ever-afters. We look for writers who share that vision, who write the books of their heart because they have a kinship with the beauty of words, the power of story, and the wonder of God’s love.
Our Hometown Romance imprint is currently closed for submissions.
We update this website page whenever we are seeking submissions, giving details for our submission process and the specific types of romances we are most interested in acquiring at the time. We delete, unread, any submission sent at any other time.
If you are a published author with rights to your backlist, we would love to talk to you about publishing options and how we can give your book new life in the marketplace.
Of primary consideration to us is the power of a memorable story. Since we are an inspirational romance publisher, the romance thread needs to be very strong, but that does not mean the book has to fit squarely into the romance genre. A bent toward romantic suspense or historical, etc., would not exclude a great story from consideration. Word count can range from 45,000-110,000. Please submit a 2-3 page synopsis, a description of your author platform (1-2 paragraphs), and the original publication date and publisher. Submissions should go to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our team has varied backgrounds in all aspects of publishing. We utilize our strengths to bring synergy that breathes life into each book we publish.
