contemporary romance element.

Our Market is: Clean & Wholesome category romance

The purpose of this anthology is to help provide more exposure for the authors included.

Those who are chosen for the anthology will need to pay $20.00 for cover and formatting and $25 for promotions, agree to adhere to the schedule and word counts, critique for all members of the group, and pay for their own story to be professionally line edited prior to final submission. All other deadlines will be emailed out to those who are chosen.

I love it too. And I've fallen in love the novella I wrote for Nanowrimo this year and I plan on submitting. (Okay, it wasn't a true nanowrimo 50K word count, but I don't care; I wrote 30K and edited 30K and did it all in the month of Nov. and the only thing I won was the satisfaction of accomplishing that. It was one of the funnest books I've written so far.
