The Wild Rose Press has put out the following submission call to its authors, which I quote here with permission from editor-in-chief Rhonda Penders:
Holiday stories are rolling out and we've lowered our prices to help with sales of our older holiday releases as well. If you ever had a holiday story in your head and wanted to get one released start working on it now. March is our deadline for submissions across all the lines. A quick tip - holiday short stories always sell much better and faster than a full length novel. If you are a writer who can't write unless you are in the "mood" now is the time to get that holiday story penned for the 2011 season.
Of course its never too early to start working on those hot summer reads either - what better way to warm up during the cold months than to pen a beach read!
Series and Call for Submissions
We have several series starting up in early 2011 - we'll put out a call for submissions once we get through the holidays. A sneak peek is a new series coming to Yellow Rose which will involved a local honky tonk and the couples who meet there. The Historical team is putting the finishing touches on a series that will involved Love Letters and I've heard rumors of a few more across the other lines. The Flower Basket - still going strong in Sweetheart Rose could use some submissions and if you were thinking of writing that Class of '85 reunion story you better get moving as submissions will close soon on that line.
Short Story Needs
Our quest continues to find and publish good solid short stories. Scarlet Rose is the only line right now that has a good supply. Tell your fellow writers that we are seriously looking for some great short stories. I know some of you think you can't write short, but trust me, you can. Take that full length that isn't going anywhere and rip it apart and shorten it up. I know you can do it, you are after all TWRP Roses which means you are good.
