Submissions are now  OPEN for Smartypants Romance!!

Form link is here:

Please feel free to share with anyone you believe might be interested in making a submission/writing a story within the Penny Reid universe. 

As I’ve been mentioning for the past… months and months, we are now (finally) accepting submissions for Smartypants Romance! This includes canon, fanfiction, and free-standing titles. For those of you who have no idea what the Smartypants Romance Universe (SRU) is, the SRU is, in the simplest terms, a small publisher that is indie-minded. It is a business whose mission is:
1) To be self-sustaining.
2) To be value added to: a) the authors and professionals (support personnel) who are published by/within/work for the SRU, b) the Penny Reid Brand, and c) the romance community and world at large.
3) To set an example of best practices, inclusion, representation, professionalism, mentorship, and craft-excellence.
4) To be drama free and efficient.

If you have any questions, please reach out to the SRU Administrator, Fiona Fischer (

We’re excited and can’t wait to read what y’all come up with!!
