Submissions Are Open!

Special Edition: Contest Issue!

Our Fall Issue – Love Unleashed – is now open for submissions.

Pets come in all shapes and sizes, and we love them — especially when they help us find romance. For this issue, we want stories filled with neighs, barks, and meows. But think outside the litter box. Give us unexpected pets like turtles, bunnies, fish … or even a boa constrictor!

Or, set your story in another time or a far-off place with pets that steal the show and warm our hearts. Try a mystery or suspense with an animal partner and some sweet romance.

Animals can create laughter or tears. Show us characters interacting with their favorite pets — just don’t forget to include lots of romance of the human variety!

Our Fall 2022 issue, Love Unleashed, will be a special edition Contest Issue! This means that all submissions will be judged and the semi-finalists will be chosen for the issue.

Three finalists will then be judged by our Featured Author, Janine Rosche, and prizes will be awarded to First, Second, and Third place!

Submissions for the contest open September 9 and close October 7. There is a small $5 entry fee for each submission.
