Anthology Call for Submissions

"Hidden Identities" 
Contemporary Romance 
Anthology Project!

Although this is not sponsored by iWriteNetwork, you are the first people we thought of to invite! 

Here are the deets:
• Genre: Contemporary Romance (Sorry, no YA and it has to be clean)
• Theme: Hidden Identity (of a main character)
• Size: 10,000-15,000 words
• Purpose: Getting your name out there. If the anthology makes a little money, it will be used first for advertising to spread the contributors' names through ebook-dom. Beyond that, the proceeds will be returned to the contributors to defray their cost for producing the novelette they submitted.
• Scope of Project: Novelettes will be included in the anthology for 3 years from publication date. After 90 days of the anthology's publication date, novelettes can be published by the contributing authors in other mediums.
• Submitted works must be original and not already published in some form somewhere.
