Happy New Year, everyone!
As some of you may know, in 2013 I started up a little venture called Roane Publishing. Well, today, to ring in the new year right, I have a nifty little cover reveal to share with you all.
This one is for Roane’s most recent romance anthology project, FOR THE LOVE OF MURPHY.
First, I’ll share the cover (which is my favorite Roane cover so far), and then I will give you the details about the anthology, and the stillo ongoing submissions call for those of you who might be interested in being included. (Especially now that you’ve seen how amazing the cover is).
*drum roll* Here it is…
Release Date: March 15, 2014
Submission Call Details:
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014
Sometimes it pays to be unlucky.
Theme: We’ve all heard of “Murphy’s Law”, well in this anthology, all the stories must be romances with a Murphy’s Law twist. Perhaps the heroine is accident prone and stumbles (literally) into the hero at the grocery store. Maybe a series of strange mishaps brings the hero and heroine together. Bring us your tales of bad luck gone romantically right. Submissions can be historical or contemporary.
- Submissions must be romances with a HEA/HFN ending for the main characters.
- Stories must be at least 5K but should not exceed 10K words.
- New Adult Genre stories will be considered for this anthology.
- Stories must adhere to the anthology call’s theme to be considered.
Please email a brief query letter along with your completed and polished manuscript to firstname.lastname@example.org and put the anthology name MURPHY in the SUBJECT LINE of your email.
Completed stories should be attached in TXT, RTF, DOC, or DOCX format ONLY and attached to your query email. All other attachment file types will be deleted unopened.
