Generally, the pitches begin on CRW’s blog at 6 a.m. Eastern, June 17, as comments on a particular CRW blog post, with basic info (name, title, genre, book wordcount, short blurb, 1st 200 words of MS, and the Harlequin target line or imprint if applicable), and a follow up for five selected finalizes to submit more for a personalized response and critique.


About The Editors:

CarlyCarly Byrne works in Harlequin Mills & Boon’s London office as Editor on the Harlequin Presents team, as well as acquiring for the other series.

Carly joined Harlequin after completing an MA in Popular Literature, and what could be more popular than Harlequin romances!  A diehard fan of everything romantic, with a particular penchant for a rugged hero in a Stetson(!), Carly can’t believe she actually gets to read romances for a living!

pippaPippa Roscoe is the Associate Editor for Harlequin Presents. After a four year dalliance in TV, she found her way to Harlequin and the home of happy ever afters. Working with authors across each of the UK acquired series, she considers herself to have the best job in the world!

She is so utterly inspired by the amazing love stories she devours, she has been known on occasion to ride the elevator rather than take the stairs, to hopefully one day just ‘happen’ to get stuck there with a delicious tycoon of her own. Her search is still on going, so in the meantime, she’ll fall in love each day with a new Presents hero written by our fabulous authors.
