Such a satisfying day! Spent most of it wading through what feels like ancient emails and manuscript submissions as I begin the long trek back to the real world.
And the responses are astounding. Replies to my responses that were months (and months) in the making, have been nothing short of encouraging. Incredibly warm, understanding, and supportive. I have to admit, I was nervous. But I can’t in good faith simply delete messages and queries regardless of how long they’ve been on hold. What an enormous relief to feel so welcomed on my return.
To be honest, I think it will still be a long time before I master my new normal. And it’s going to take some serious umph to catch up!! But I’m not in any rush. I’ll do what I can as fast as I can – though I won’t sacrifice quality for convenience or comfort! So I will sneak my way back into gear, and enjoy the process of rebuilding and building Romantic Shorts.
Hello again. It’s nice to see you all. We’ll talk soon!
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:

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!!
