Call for Submissions: "Paramourtal 2" (paranormal romance short stories)
Cliffhanger Books is looking for new, previously unpublished short stories (approx. 6500-8000 words) for "Paramourtal 2," the second volume of our award-nominated paranormal romance series. We are eager to read truly original fiction with unique (i.e. think beyond vampires and werewolves, though they are welcome, as well), well-defined, emotionally complex characters.
Give us an innovative take on an established paranormal character type. Approach your love story from a fresh angle or motivation. Hook us in with an imaginative and perplexing plot that will keep readers engaged until the very end.
Our first book was nominated for 2010 Romance Anthology of the Year and we hope to win with this new edition.
Submissions are open to all U.S. and international writers age 18 and over. Stories must be submitted in English. While paranormal romance authors are generally female, we want story submissions from talented male writers as well.
Interested writers are invited to review our submission guidelines here.
Deadline for submissions is midnight, October 31, 2011 (Halloween!).
