Executive Editor | Acquisitions Director – firstname.lastname@example.org | In a sleepy rural town, the sidewalks roll up early, leaving Penny Barber ample time to frolic with words. She strives to coax and cajole them into vibrant worlds, remarkable characters, and exciting situations. Since she actually enjoys studying the tricks of the trade, she continually expands her writer’s toolbox and is happy to share her tools. She’s looking for strong, savvy characters, flawed, but redeemable, willing to battle anything fate throws them to improve their world and earn their happy ending. Paranormal hotties who embrace their badness—yes. Fantasy lovers who steam up every room they enter—please. Contemporary career focused ice queens and kings who learn a new kind of strength in surrender—oh yeah. Intriguing worlds, intimidating bad guys, compelling conflicts—bring it!
Managing Line Editor | Acquisitions Director – email@example.com | Mary enjoys most sub-genres of romance, including historical, paranormal and contemporary, as well as urban fantasy and erotica in any setting. Lately she’s been a crazed hat-knitter, a rabid hollywhoo wreathmaker and a lackadaisical housekeeper. Her favorite thing in the world besides Christmas–ironically enough–and being with family and friends is reading a story that sweeps her away. She firmly believes humor plus hot romance in a story help keep her sane. Pet peeves include improper dialogue punctuation and sentence mechanics, historical romances with badly or no research done, and third person omniscient voice. She encourages all writers to belong to a supportive yet sadistic critique group or have beta readers with the same qualities. Also, to use a dictionary for homonyms and a thesaurus in striving for the perfect word. Disregard of LPI submission guidelines and headhopping will earn an immediate rejection. The fabulous authors on her roster are Erin Grace, Autumn Piper, S.W. Vaughn, Daisy Banks, Rhonda Leah, a. c. Mason, Reece Brett, Jasmine Black and Esmerelda Bishop. Please check them out! Preferred genres: Historical Romance , Paranormal Romance, Mystery Romance, Erotica.

Preferred genres: Urban Fantasy , Paranormal Romance, Sci-Fi Romance, Contemporary Romance, Multiple Partner, Gay Romance.
Content and Acquisitions Editor – email@example.com | If you believe family lore, Paige Christian surrounded herself with books before she could walk. Never without at least one book in hand, she became a huge fan of genre fiction–urban fantasy, mysteries, paranormal and more. Above all, though, she fell in love with romance of nearly every flavor and never looked back. Paige is interested in any genre Lyrical acquires. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been published or not. If you have a great story with strong characters, a solid and unique voice, exceptional storytelling skills and the ability to make her forget about her coffee until it has gone cold, she wants your submission.

Preferred genres: Coming soon
Content and Acquisitions Editor – email@example.com | Corinne has traveled and lived all over the world, and after fifteen years gone, has just recently returned to Michigan with her family to plant some roots for her young boys. She is partial to any stories set in Scotland, Ireland and Australia where she lived, as a little bit of her heart remains in each. Inspiring, compelling, funny, and tear-jerker stories, capable of keeping her reading until two in the morning, make her a happy woman. If she isn’t reading, writing or editing, she is spending time with her little ones, and after that – there isn’t much left to the day! She dreams of getting back some of her old adventuresome life soon, riding and sailing (maybe downhill skiing since she is now in Michigan!), but until then, she lives vicariously through her books.
Preferred genres: Contemporary (from sweet to sexy), Historical, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, and anything that falls under the Lyrical Lines: Embrace, Hometown Heroes, Once Upon and Vintage.
Content and Acquisitions Editor – firstname.lastname@example.org | Piper Denna has been with Lyrical Press since its opening in 2008. She started out as an author, both in contemporary erotic romance and mainstream contemporary romance, and became a content editor shortly after. Piper prefers to edit romance and erotic romance, heavy on (realistic) conflict and sexual tension. Humor is a lovely bonus. Her authors probably groan when they receive her edits, but she gets lots of thank-yous from them, so she must be doing something right.
