The Pearls Of Yesterday (YA Romance)

The Pearls of Yesterday cover.First kisses ruin everything. No matter whose lips sixteen-year-old Abigail Lucille Panashe touches, her life becomes plagued with disaster. But her friends won’t let her give up on that romantic, fireworks kind of kiss Abby has dreamt of. It just can’t be with her best friend, Theo Winthers, because that would be weird. Especially that for the last ten years, Abby and her late Papi imagined Theo accompanying her to this summer’s debutante ball. They’ve already perfected the dance to her wheelchair moves. If only Abby’s older sister, Astrid, hadn’t arranged for their next-door neighbor, Hudson Giordani, to be Abby’s escort. Now, kissing Hudson, that would definitely be weir—no, Abby cannot think about even looking at Hudson. He broke her heart five years ago and their reunited interaction just included vomiting. All Abby wants is her Papi here because life is unraveling to what she had planned. And the pressure of being perfect has Abby finding comfort in lips she’s not supposed to touch. Disaster is moments away, but her Papi can’t be there to save her this time.

Submissions

At INCLUDAS Publishing, we are all about disability visibility in the book world. This means that we are dedicated to publishing disabled authors and stories that include disability in any form. We can’t wait to read your words, whether it’s a picture book or a mystery novel. Thank you for your interest and good luck. Fiction only. At this time, we are looking for all types of YA, MG, and children’s books. Our submissions are currently open, but will close 9/1/21 and open back up in early 2022.

Great! Now go write your idea down! This is the perfect time to stretch your creativity and imagination to build awesome characters. No matter the genre character agency and world building are fundamental parts. Remember, it’s important to read other books inside and outside your genre.

Awesome! Now that you’ve researched the market place and crafted your story from your ideas, it’s time to get feedback on it. Get to know and interact with other authors writing in your genre. Use writing resource blogs, writing workshops, critique groups, beta readers, and professional editors to help improve your story.

Congratulations! Now that you’ve had your story critiqued, edited, and rewritten, it’s time to consider publishing. When it comes to publishing a book, it’s important to know what that means. This way you can figure out if you would like to self-publish, submit to an agent, or be accepted into a small press. If you are not sure what this means, ask your fellow writers and join organizations. You can also check out The Key Book Publishing Path by Jane Friedman.

If you have a polished manuscript, submit to us!
For unagented submissions, we REQUIRE each manuscript be edited by at least one professional developmental/manuscript critique editor in the chosen genre PRIOR to submission.
