Welcome to Venus Ascending, an imprint of Tickety Boo Press Ltd. The imprint’s acquiring editor is multi-published author and extremely experienced editor, Teresa Edgerton. She is interested in romantic SFF in all sub-genres, right now Teresa is especially interested in steampunk, gaslight, high fantasy, historical, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, space opera, dark fantasy, weird western, magical realism, fairy tales re-told, and time travel.
For steampunk Teresa doesn’t have a preference whether the story leans toward science fiction or fantasy, or if it sits squarely in the middle as science fantasy.
For historical anything between (and including) the Elizabethan period through the Regency era or in the vein of Victorian gothic would be especially welcome.
But what Teresa would particularly like to see is a truly epic love story, either fantasy or science fiction. Epic setting, big emotions (but no melodrama), epic events that either draw the lovers together or push them apart, a love that changes the world for good or ill … that sort of thing. Break her heart and put it back together again. For this we would be looking at manuscripts of 110K or longer.
