Submission Call:


At Bella Books, we believe stories about lesbians are an essential of life—and so do our readers. We are interested in acquiring manuscripts that tell terrific stories about lesbians. Love, life, adventure, drama—we’re looking for imaginative and entertaining stories that illuminate and celebrate our realities and fantasies.


We also believe that our readers have high standards for exciting, fresh plots, and that they relish hours spent with engaging characters whose complexities, struggles and triumphs celebrate their hopes and dreams. They want books they can’t put down, stories they think about for days afterward, and characters so compelling they wish they could meet them. 

To provide our readers with the kinds of stories they demand and deserve, we publish lesbian romance, mystery, action/thriller, science-fiction, fantasy, erotica and general lesbian fiction. If you believe your manuscript will meet our needs, we welcome your submission.
