10th SPOTLIGHT - Pitch Your Dreams To MuseItUp Publishing, Inc.

Marketing for Romance Writers.Org is excited to announce our annual “Write-place, Write-time” Submissions event scheduled for September 8th and 9th, 2012.

We have an amazing panel of Publishers and Editors ready to give YOU, aspiring authors or seasoned authors, an opportunity to “pitch your dreams” to a listening audience.

BUT…that ever tricky timing can be a slippery little rascal. So, for you - MFRW is providing a platform of:


“Write-place, Write-time”

Let's say you are on an elevator when...

...the publisher/editor of your dreams steps through the door. Your heart is pumping, your hands are clammy and you know you have a limited amount of time to tell this person about the next New York Times Best Seller for which you have just assigned those coveted words "the end".

MFRW brings you that elevator moment.

OUR TENTH SPOTLIGHT OF THE MANY PARTICIPATING PUBLISHERS/EDITORS: MUSEITUP PUBLISHING, INC.


MuseItUp Publishing opened its door to writers March 2010. We follow the motto: Building the team to achieve the dream! which simply means gathering writers who understand that a 'family' of writers in a house can achieve a goal when they work together.

We welcome new and seasoned writers to send us their manuscripts. Simultaneous submissions will be accepted provided it is clearly stated in your cover letter that another publisher is considering your work. Our authors do not pay a fee to e-publish their books with us. We provide editing and cover art for all our books, and assign the ISBN to your work.

We are open to the following genres:

Romance - everything from: romantic comedy, contemporary romance, fantasy romance, historical romance, paranormal romance, romantic suspense, western romance, sweet romance, sci-fi romance, time travel romance

Paranormal - Fantasy - we love vampires, ghosts, witches, werewolves and shape shifters...and dragons

Mystery - Suspense -Thriller - captivate us with the pacing of your novel. Hint: we love cozy mysteries

Young Adult - we're big fans of the Potter & Twilight series but seeking a unique voice for this target group

MuseItYoung – this division is for our tween crossover chapter books for 10 – 14 year olds - NO PICTURE BOOKS

Horror & Dark Fiction - scare the living daylights out of us with your settings, dialogue, and characters - not with blood and gore and missing human parts. Use the power of your writer's voice to draw images that will leave readers sitting at the edge of their seats.

Science Fiction - do you have a fantasy/romance/paranormal/etc. set in another planet? Fleshed out your otherly world? Then give us a shout.


MuseItHOT imprint

is actively seeking erotic romance, whether naughty but nice, naughty and sizzling, or naughty and sizzling HOT. We would like to see well-developed stories and characters we can easily connect with. We’ll acquire erotic romance in all subgenres: Contemporary, suspense, paranormal, fantasy, historical, f/f, m/m, ménage (with people please, no animals!!) We accept stories from 3000 words and up, but prefer novella lengths ranging from 15000 to 25000 words.

The sexual relationship should enhance the storyline and character development, contributing to the forward motion of the plot.

MuseItHOT Publishing is seeking romance erotica for our Short ‘N Spicey lineup.

Stories can be anywhere between 3000 – 20,000 words. Please send your full ms with a short synopsis as attachments to

musesubs AT gmail DOT com

with Short ‘N Spicey on the subject heading. Stories can be in any genre but must include a romantic theme. Can be F/M, F/F, M/M.

Please include in your submission which of the three heat levels your story falls under:

Naughty but Nice: some graphic language and scenes

Naughty with sizzle: might include some fantasy, spanking, toys, and f/f, m/m, with several love scenes

Sizzling HOT!: explicit love scenes and language, multiple partners, same sex relationships, toys…elements that are heavier than the above heat levels.

We're also seeking Christmas stories for our 2012 publication in both our mainstream and erotica divisions.

We're seeking quality work, not first drafts, ranging from 3,000 words minimum to novel length. We are currently NOT seeking: short story collections or anthologies,

Poetry, nonfiction, or stories written by more than two authors.

We are an e-publishing house with the aim of publishing e-books first and print books to follow an e-book release within a year (only novel length books of 45,000 and more will be considered for print.) If print is not published within a year of the e-book release, print rights are reverted back to the author and the e-book rights are still maintained until the duration of the contract.

Although we are open to all genres as stated in our guidelines above, we are actively seeking the following for MuseItUp and MuseItHOT:

-young adult romance (for mainstream)
-vampires and other undead creatures
-cozy mysteries
-thrillers
-tween chapter books (for boys especially)
