We are very selectively requesting erotic fiction, but not straight erotica. There is a very fine line. We have no interest in works of fiction that are erotic scenes loosely connected with bits of story. We are looking for women’s fiction and romance with erotic themes and erotic love/sex scenes , about 70,000-90,000 words in length. Stories should include the psychological aspect of erotic play and be written in a mature and intelligent fashion.
We are interested in reading biographies and memoirs about interesting people, especially women. Some of our favorite books in this genre are The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Eslanda: The Large and Unconventional Life of Mrs. Paul Robeson, Dear Senator: A Memoir by the Daughter of Strom Thurmond, Dido Belle: The Slave Daughter and the Lord Chief Justice, Eslanda: The Large and Unconventional Life of Mrs. Paul Robeson, Priscilla: The Hidden Life of an Englishwoman in Wartime France and Winnie Davis: Daughter of the Lost Cause.
We love speculative fiction at Holloway Literary. High concept and book-to-film friendly is even better. Maybe your hero or heroine discovers the lost city of Atlantis or finds Neanderthals living among us? How about exploring the ancient astronaut theory or discovering what happened to Rome’s lost 9th legion?
