    Thanks, Cathy! Since my agent went poof on me, I have to go back to the drawing board and this will REALLY help!

    Cathy,

    I was just browsing and noticed that the link to Treble Heart Books doesn't work. I figured out what it is. The link has Submissions_Guidelines when it should be Submission_Guidelines. Lose that "s" before the underscore and it should work.

    Great job you're doing here. You're tempting me to try writing romances.

    Hi, jbayley! Thanks for bringing this market to my attention! DC Thomson publishes a weekly magazine called "My Weekly Stories" which contains romance/drama/mystery novellas for the UK/Scottish market. It has a good circulation and selected stories from the collection are published in hardbound annually. Payment is 200 pounds for 30-35K sweet, contemporary or historical romances. I've posted the guidelines above! I was also able to find the on-line guidelines for Black Lace, a UK erotica publisher.


    Anytime anyone hears of a new market, please let me know here and we'll keep updating the list!

    DC Thomson actually publish several magazines and newspapers. The four of interest to romance writers are 'The People's Friend' and 'My Weekly' and their Story Collections.

    The P's F and My Weekly are weekly women's magazines and have around 5-7 short stories per issue. You can get excellent guidelines for these strictly sweet markets.

    DC Thomson also produce 4 every month of a small paperback novel the 'My Weekly Story Collection' and 2 a month of 'The People's Friend Story Collection'. You need to read them as there are subtle difference between the two and you will need a Scottish/British connection in your story. Length around 35,000 words - 128 pages.

    If you write with an s.a.e they will send you very helpful guidelines but do read what they publish as these editors know exactly what they want. If you can approach them sounding very professional and non-precious about your work they will often ask you for rewrites. I had to rewrite a recent short story submission four times before it was exactly what they wanted!

    Also once they know you you will be able to submit by e-mail to a specific editor and that is very quick and helpful.

    Any advice for submitting either queries or manuscripts ... given all the guidelines are met and so furth what can you really do to make your proposal stand out?

    Cathy:

    While searching through sites for publishers, with respect to romance publishers--I know Mills & Boon is part of Harlequin which you have on the list I found

    http://www.millsandboon.co.uk/

    The site is one I completely forgot. Is it one you can put on your list? It is really Harlequin Romance etc. but those manuscipts go to the UK now...and the international venues look so different.

    Josie

    oops, plus I have a few pages of guidelines which they emailed me as an attachment, I can look for them and email them to you if you like.

    Sure if you wouldn't mind I would really appreciate it. Hopefully the better researched I am the more productive a proposal I can make... I hope!!

    All right. I'm going to try to forward this attachment on this reply, but it might not work. If it doesn't, then busy Cathy will have to give me a clue on how to do it. Or I guess I could forward it to her. Hmm

    Stay tuned!!

    Nope it isn't working. So please be patient.

    Is that on trade and mass market? I think the terms may be different for different people.

    Cathy: I believe you have a new novel out this month?
    Looks good. Congrats.

    I've tried to bring up Tor's guidelines as per your web address for Publisher's Guidelines, but it doesn't work

    Cheers, Josie
