Romantic Encounters

Romantic Encounters is the romance strand of the Telos Moonrise digital fiction imprint.

Currently closed for submissions. Submissions are usually open between certain dates each year – please check back here periodically, or see the Moonrise Blog for updates.

What we want …

We are looking for well-rounded stories with romantic content. They must have a strong plot and convincing characters but can be in any setting and can be cross-genre. So supernatural stories, ghost stories, or merely modern day drama will all be considered. But these should have a strong romantic theme – without containing explicit sexual content (which is catered for in the Sinful Pleasures strand of the imprint).

Please note that we are not looking for teen romance or angst-driven supernatural fiction.

All content should be aimed at the adult market. And should, above all, be well-written.

Submission requirements …

In the first instance send a one page synopsis with the first 5000 words of your manuscript as a doc, docx or rtf file by email to

Layout will be to professional standard so – single quote marks, English UK spellings and grammar. Font: Times New Roman, 12 pt. Double spaced.

This file should also contain a cover sheet with your legal name, address, telephone contact details and e-mail address in the top left hand corner. Right top corner should state whether this is a novel, novella or short story collection and the genre. Centred, halfway down the page, should be the title of your work and your preferred author name. Bottom left should show the approximate word count of your completed manuscript.

We aim to give you a quick response, but as with all professional submissions please allow 12 weeks before enquiring.
