Romantic Shorts Is Open For Submissions

At long last, and with overwhelming gratitude, Romantic Shorts announces its long-awaited Call For Submissions.

Updating and repair of both the main website and the HQ is underway, emails are being sorted through, and every attempt is being made to respond to queries and submissions, regardless of how long ago they came in. Be sure to sign up for email updates, if you haven’t already, to hear all the latest news.

In the meantime, go ahead and jump the queue!

Romantic Shorts Authors:
Please reach out via the HQ Contact Page. Your Author’s Page will need updating, and we have much catching up to do!

Prospective Authors:
Check out the Submission Guidelines, make sure you’re on track, and submit your story. No idea at this point what turn-around times will be, but count on at least a month for a reply. And if you have any questions that aren’t answered on the FAQ’s page, feel free to ask via the HQ Contact Page.

Advertisers and Sponsors:
Contact Romantic Shorts through the HQ Contact Page, with a subject line “RE: ADS” so they get flagged separately.

Welcome back everyone! Plans are underway for building and growing a publication that will lead the industry in its niche. With new direction, expanded lines, and a fresh marketing strategy, the sky’s the limit!

Publishing Set To Resume May 2015

Just a quick heads-up to our writers. I will be reviewing the manuscripts I have on file in the Inbox over the next couple weeks. And we will be announcing an open call for submissions as well. Aiming for new weekly publications starting in May.

Dust off those manuscripts and send ’em in. Looking forward to reading some really great stories!!

Stay tuned!

The New Contender in Online Romance Publishing

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!!

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.
