I've had some excellent submissions for this. One is from a fresh new writing voice who comes across as romantic and masculine and funny all at once. This guy knows what he's doing!! He loves romance, and loves women and loves writing about love that can stand the tests of time. And there are still a few openings for other stories, too. When it comes to creative possibilities, the sky is the limit with this anthology. I've posted the same call here, too: http://www.ryan-field.blogspot.com.
Editor: Ryan Field
Deadline: February 14, 2009
Romance author Ryan Field is editing an anthology titled, "Lasting Love," for ravenousromance.com that deals with couples who have been together a long time. Looking for short stories, or essays, that range from 2,000 - 5,000 words, about couples who have lasted. This could include married couples, or unmarried couples; just as long as they have been together for more than five years. Ages could range from couples who were high school sweethearts, now in their mid-twenties, to couples in their early fifties. This is mainly hetero, but a few same sex couple stories will be considered. The hotter the better, but the storyline and quality of writing has to be strong, and the characters have to be well developed and believable.
The romantic aspects of this are unlimited, and it's a chance to write about a topic that offers many creative possibilities.
Submission deadline is February 14, 2009. E-mail your completed stories to
in MS Word format. Include all contact info on the first page of the ms, including pen name and real name. Payment: A pro rata share of a 38% e-book, 15% audiobook, and 50% subsidiary rights royalty. And an advance of 10.00.
