Forever Yours Submission Guidelines

Forever Yours accepts both agented and unagented submissions.

What we’re looking for…

We’re interested in all styles of romance, particularly contemporary, diverse reads, romantic suspense, cowboys, historicals, and paranormal.

We’re not looking for any YA, fantasy, mystery, general fiction, or nonfiction.
