Entangled Teen: Now Seeking Manuscript Submissions

Updated May 2020: It’s worth noting that in 2019 they signed a controversial author duo that is banned on Amazon, and that created some ongoing bad press. You can read about it here (Scan down towards the bottom of the page) and here. I think this raises serious questions and should be taken into consideration.

Entangled Teen is the YA imprint of the romance publisher Entangled Publishing. Entangled Publishing is a newer company but they have had a lot of success in the genre of romance and they have sold a lot of books. They primarily operate on a digital first model, which usually means print runs only happen if/when the digital book has been successful.

They do publish a lot of work every month, which is a little intimidating, because one does not want their book to be lost in the shuffle. But the books generally have great covers and Entangled Publishing says that they make individual marketing plans for all their books.

Entangled Teens has three separate imprints. The first called Entangled Teen is looking for romance novels, or novels with strong romantic elements that are between 70k and 120k words in length. The works they publish include contemporary romance, science fiction, paranormal, fantasy, historical, and romantic suspense and thrillers. You can learn more about what they are specifically seeking here.

Teen Crave is looking for shorter work, between 45k and 65k in length in the paranormal/scifi/fantasy genre. The main characters of these work must be between 16 and 18 years in age. You can learn more about their specific submission guidelines here.

Teen Crush is seeking work between 40k and 60k that is contemporary romance. They publish trope based stories featuring main characters between the ages of 16-18. You can learn more here.

All of the teen imprints are open to f/m, f/f, and m/m pairings. In all the categories they helpfully list authors they love as well as tv relationships that they love. So it is rather easy to get a feel for what they are looking for. All submissions are accepted online. You can learn more about overall submissions here.
