Most of our editors and line editors have been with us since our first year of operation (2004/2005), but occasionally someone retires, and must be replaced. All editors and line editors are hired from within our proofing pool.
We do take on proof readers, who work for books, and can request titles from our backlist, as well. We then we hire our editors and line editors from the proofing pool, whenever that need comes along.
To inquire about our proof readers' test, please contact us at submissions.changelingpress (at)gmail.com and add Proof Readers' Test to the subect line.
Call For Submissions:
We're currently looking for Contemporary and Futuristic short fiction, single title, series, and serials in the following genres and themes:
Genres: Sci-Fi/Futuristic, Dark and Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, BDSM, Action Adventure, and Guilty Pleasures (Adult Contemporary Kink)

We publish women's Sci-Fi/Futuristic, Dark and Urban Fantasy, Paranormal, Action Adventure, BDSM, and Guilty Pleasures (Contemporary)Erotic Romance. All submissions must be targeted for at least one of these genres and must be Women's Erotic Romance.

We do accept multiple submissions (An author may send us several books at the same time).

What to submit:
We accept submissions via email ONLY. If you do not have reliable access to the internet to be able to communicate with us electronically, you do not have the ability to promote your work electronically.
* A short cover letter including your publishing history, if any, a short blurb and plot summary of no more than 500 words, including genres and themes you're targeting for this book, and whether it's a single title or a series/serial.
* Your COMPLETE manuscript, as an RTF (Rich Text File) or txt (Text) file attachment. Every word processing program has the ability to save as Rich Text or Text. That's it. We're going to reformat your file to suit our own guidelines, so use whatever font you wish. We don't care. We have a format macro. :-)
* A brief promotional plan, including links to your website, blog, Facebook, Wordpress, journal, etc., and chat sites where you plan to promote, should we accept your work for publication. An author's ability to promote is critical to the success of any book's sales. You will also be expected to promote your book through active participation in the Changeling Readers' loop, the Changeling Insider, The Cheeky Changeling (our online E-Zine), The Changeling Blog, our Facebook page, Weekly Flash Fiction Challenges, and other regularly-scheduled promotions.
