Wow. You put out a simple ad on Facebook and another on Linkedin and better be ready to welcome the world!!
How exciting is this?!!
Overwhelmed by the number of queries, leads, contacts, and messages, I am working diligently to reply to each and every one in as timely a manner as is humanly possible. And, admittedly, I am not living up to my own expectations.
I will catch up – please be patient while I sort through and give due attention to every request for my personal response. I didn’t want you to think I am ignoring you…
But in the meantime, WELCOME TO ROMANTIC SHORTS!!
And a quick note for our new writer and advertiser enquirers:

Romantic Shorts Writers’ FAQ’s
I look forward to meeting all of our new friends. Thank you for your interest in Romantic Shorts and again, a hearty welcome!
Romantic Shorts is about to explode. After months of excitement and anticipation, and despite my own recent personal tragedy, it is with an unexpectedly overwhelming energy that I announce the next stage in our venture!
We have momentum. (Loud, extended screams of celebration and one heck of a happy dance!!!!)
A fine looking chart!!
With growth to over 3,000 views per month, translating into hundreds of readers stopping by to check out our romantic short stories, it’s time to hit the overdrive button. And so, Romantic Shorts is proud to announce that we are now offering our writers a little more than a promotions page, readers, and a leg up.
Our submission guidelines have been updated to reflect these changes and we welcome all writers of romance to consider submitting a romantic short story for online publication at Romantic Shorts. This year brings with it new focus on marketing, advertising, and recruitment. With the drive we’ve created, and clear direction – still and always aimed at the promotion of writers, enjoyment of readers, and commitment to advertisers – the future of Romantic Shorts is brilliant!!
Check out our new guidelines. Consider writing for us. We’re currently shooting for 50 stories per year, with the expectation of being able to offer 200 per year by 2015. There’s room for all of the best quality works – so feel free to share the news with fellow writers!!
Our renewed determination is only limited by the boundaries of our imagination. Let’s see what this baby can really do!!
Alexandra Brown,Founder and Chief Operations Manager.
Momentum is a funny thing. Predictable on one hand. Unreliable on the other. Pushing a car up a hill is easy if you get a running start and have enough umph to keep it going until it reaches level ground. Not so easy if the person at the wheel accidentally steps on the brake half way there!
Yeah, it’s just me waxing a little poetic as I put nose to grindstone once more to find and entice writers to submit their stories to Romantic Shorts.
Of the authors we’ve published so far, all have reported positive feedback about their Romantic Shorts experience. Sure, no, it’s not a paying gig. But their Author’s Pages are theirs to keep for the duration of their stories’ life at RS. They can notify us of new awards, works, and accomplishments at anytime, and their pages are updated to reflect their current status. As well, they have a permalink to their story that they can use anywhere as a writing sample, free offer, or credit. It’s not a bad deal for 5,000 words.
Absolutely, down the road as we finally initiate an advertising program that works for us, we will offer financial compensation as well. We look forward to hardcopy anthology sales and other projects that will bring revenue to RS and our writers. The hurdle to this, ironically, is building a solid library.
It’s a sweet Catch-33: Find the writers to draw the readers to entice the advertisers to reward the writers.
And so I’m spending my time now focusing on finding writers with strong, entertaining, high-quality stories they’d like to share with our readers – who now average well into the hundreds every week. If everyone pushes the car, we’ll all get to where we’re going a lot sooner.
