About

Carina Press is one of Harlequin’s digital-first adult fiction single-title imprints, publishing first in digital, with releases in audio and print as well. Our mission is to connect readers with authors who write the stories they want to read, and the stories they want to talk about and recommend. Though Harlequin is mainly known as a romance publisher, Carina Press publishes a wide range of romance and mystery genres and features books from talented authors in many subgenres, including contemporary romance, science fiction and fantasy romance, romantic suspense, thriller mystery and more. But Carina Press is interested in more than just the traditional genres. We’re also willing to go beyond the boundaries and mix it up. If the book of your heart fits into a niche that has very little shelf space in a traditional bookstore, Carina Press is eager to read and potentially publish your story.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
