Update for Our Writers

Just a quick note to touch base with all authors who have manuscripts submitted with us:

We’re getting there!

Things are happening fast here on our side. We are putting into place an advertising model and contracts that will see the smooth launching of our publication this summer. It’s quite exciting!

The bottom line right now is that we won’t contact our writers about their stories until we have our laundry ironed: the contracts, legalities, and presentation platform all ready. I want to focus first and foremost on our advertising program right now – it will be great to open with some financial potential.

And more than anything, to be able to offer our authors royalties on their stories is one of our top priorities!

Competition winners will be announced June 30th.

We will begin to offer contracts in July and expect to be avidly reaching out to Readers in August.

In the meantime, we are still accepting unsolicited manuscripts from all writers. Click here for submission details.

Writers' Contests

We are very excited about the response we’re receiving to our new Writers’ Competition, ‘New Year New Story 2011.’ The deadline for this competition is March 31st, and details about what we’re looking for and how to enter are available right here.

For those who are inquiring about the option of submitting by the standard practice of querying your idea, the answer is yes, absolutely!

Romantic Shorts is accepting unsolicited manuscripts of short romantic stories, 4500-6000 words, from established and published authors, as well as the newest of new writers and students. This is a great opportunity to build your resume, your skill, and your reputation, especially if you are trying to break into the field.

Keep in mind that Romantic Shorts is new, unique, and untried. That doesn’t mean, however, that we don’t adhere to the highest expectations of quality, expertise, and integrity, both for ourselves and our authors. It does mean that we’re in this because we love what we’re doing, want to enjoy it, learn from it, build it. Your experience with Romantic Shorts may be a little different from relationships you’ve had in the past with other publishers; but we’re positive that that will be a good thing – for all of us.

This is a very fascinating time for us. We’re looking forward to hearing from you, and quite possibly working with you as we grow our little website into a publishing house that leads with its reputation, its promise, and its quality.
