Additional Tips:

Wings ePress, Inc. does not accept or publish X-rated books, erotica, or manuscripts about alternative life styles. An author can write fairly steamy scenes, but it must be appropriate for the material. Write the kind of love scenes with which you feel comfortable and the chances are we'll be fine with it. With the greater freedom with e-novels, our word count is 50,000-120,000 words, though we will look at longer books when the story warrants the length. We are not interested in seeing manuscripts with less than 50,000 word count for any genre other than Young Adult books.

We look forward to reading your manuscripts.
