Sex Scenes We do not publish sweet romance. Sex must be fully consummated and described.
  • Siren erotic romance must contain at least two consummated sex scenes using explicit adult language. Because this is an erotic romance, there must be penetrative intercourse involving the genitals. Do not write these scenes using purple prose or flowery language. 
  • BookStrand mainstream must contain at least one consummated sex scene using language suitable for the general audience (euphemisms allowed). There must be sexual intercourse.
Cliffhangers We do not accept any story that ends with a cliffhanger where the H/h are separated or one or both are facing a life-or-death moment.  The H/h must at least have an HFN with unresolved threads while the author is writing a sequel.
     We may consider a life-or-death cliffhanger if the sequel with the HEA is submitted at the same time.
Character age requirements
  • All characters must be at least 21 years old to be involved in a ménage or polyamorous relationship.
  • All characters must be at least 21 years old to be involved in heavy BDSM scenes or the BDSM lifestyle.
  • All characters must be over 18 years old to be involved in any sexual scene, with NO emphasis at any time on how "barely legal" they are for the purposes of titillation.
  • No flashback or detailed description depicting sex acts or rape involving a character when they were still a minor. 
Incest and "pseudo" incest cannot be the premise or main focus of story mainly for sexual titillation
  • If "steps" become sexually involved with each other, the premise of the book cannot emphasize on how exciting it is that "daddy," "mommy," or "brother" finally got to do it with their "son," "daughter," or "sister" for the purposes of sexual titillation. It must be a secondary issue that is no longer the focus once they become involved sexually. 
Automatic rejection Absolutely "NO!" to descriptions of bodily functions; any form of pedophilia; necrophilia unless it's the undead, such as vampires; or bestiality unless it's a sentient being, such as a shape-shifter.

Where to submit (for all new authors, current authors, and Siren-exclusive authors)

SUBMISSIONS @
SIRENBOOKSTRAND . COM

because your submission may not get forwarded.
 

Previously published
works
New authors: No previously published works will be considered. 

Current Siren authors: Send an inquiry before submitting a previously published work. 
 

Multiple submissions and
simultaneous submissions
You do not have to wait for your book to be published before you submit other manuscripts. We will consider multiple submissions at the same time from the same author if the books are in a series.

However, we do not accept simultaneous submissions. We respond quickly to all submissions. If your manuscript is being considered by another publisher, please do not submit the same manuscript to us for consideration.

  • 3 to 4 weeks for current and exclusive authors
  • 4 to 5 weeks for new authors

If you have not heard from us in 5 weeks, follow up by sending an email to submissions @ sirenbookstrand . com with Submission Follow Up: Story Title in the Subject line.

 

Current authors Please attach only your manuscript in your submission email according to guidelines above. 

Current authors, please do not send the cover questionnaire or attach your own cover in the same manuscript submission email because acquisition does not handle or forward covers. Wait until the appropriate staff member requests a cover questionnaire from you.
