Update: This call was accurate at the time it was written, but has since been removed from the Pride Publishing submissions page. Before submitting your manuscript, please send an inquiry with synopsis to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Pride Publishing Submission to find out if they want to have a gander at your story.
Pride Publishing wants GLBTQI romance novels and novellas for its Enemies to Friends book line. The editors write:
Remember that boy who picked on you in high school? Or that guy who stole that great job from under your nose? You might run into someone you once hated and realise that the hate was misplaced. That the person you swore would be an enemy for life is actually the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. What could be more explosive and passionate than a gripping enemies-to-lovers story? We’re looking for manuscripts between 10,000–100,000 words in length, series and serials are also welcome.

About Submission Calls
I post paying submission calls every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I focus on fiction calls, but occasionally post paying opportunities for creative nonfiction and poetry.
Browse more submission calls or tips for writers. You can sort calls by payment rate: token, semi-professional, professional, or royalties. To get a weekly roundup of all my posts for writers, sign up here.
I strive to ensure that all submission calls I post are open to works with characters from underrepresented groups, including queer/LGBTQIA characters. I do this by checking the publisher's back catalog, submissions policies, or business practices, or by communicating with the publisher directly.
Please contact the publisher through the links in the post if you have questions about a submission call. Contact me if you've had a bad experience with a publisher featured here.
