Cruise the world with Kindred’s Launching Love series!

Kindred Ink Press is looking to expand the Launching Love cruise series with stories in the 20-40K word range to be published as standalone novellas. We’re looking for stories set aboard cruise ships and their excursions anywhere in the world. Like everything Kindred, romance doesn’t need to be the main focus of the story, but we would like a HEA or HFN.

Submitted stories must be new and previously unpublished on any platform and be a complete story.

The Kindred team will handle the full publishing process, but we ask that you submit your best work to ease the process.

Please note: This series resides solely in KDP Select and Kindle Unlimited.

Submission Guidelines:

  • Word count must be in the 20,000-40,000 range.
  • Submitted stories must be new and previously unpublished on any platform.
  • Stories must fit Kindred’s general submission guidelines (Sweet-to-Heat level, language in dialogue, etc.) which can be found at
  • All submissions must be in English (native to the story – US, UK, Australian, Canadian).
  • Submissions must be in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx), double spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font.
