Sweet Texas Christmas

Theme: holiday love

Heat Level: Sweet to sensual
Deadline: July 1, 2017

Do you have a sweet Christmas story that takes place in Texas? If so, we’re looking for you! This wonderful Prairie Rose Publications boxed set will contain stories (and recipes!) for the sweetest, most joyful time of the year. Tales of lost love found and new love discovered—along with mention of some delectable treats—will be included for our readers’ holiday pleasure.

We’re looking for stories from 10,000 to 17,000 words in length of the “sweet to sensual” heat level for this set. Be sure to mention your sweet Christmas treat in your story, and send the recipe along for inclusion at the back of the collection.

A Song to Remember

Theme: The music of life and love
Length: 15,000 to 25,000 words
Heat: sweet to spicy (no erotica, please)
Deadline: Open submission
Some song titles evoke memories not only of the song, but also of the time…the era…the place. They call for stories all their own, and at Fire Star Press they’ve inspired a new boxed set of novella-length stories.

We're looking for stories set in the 1940s and '50s:

Someone To Watch Over Me: 1940sPARANORMAL

When you think of the song "Someone To Watch Over Me," you probably think of the comfort of a safe haven in the arms of your true love. But what if the “someone” was not what he or she appeared to be? What if he were a ghost from the past, or a figment of the future? What if she were an alien from another world or a shapeshifter? This novella duet lends itself to all kinds of intrigue. Stories should be set in the 1940s. We’re not looking for graphic horror or sex—just an “aha” moment and the inevitable decision: What will your hero or heroine do when they discover exactly who—or what—watches over them?

If I Loved You: 1950sMISUNDERSTOOD LOVE

If I Loved You will contain two stories of misunderstood love set in the 1950s. This could be anything from a series of events that are misunderstood by one partner or the other to one big misunderstanding that could cloud the issue of a relationship forever. A man sees his intended bride kiss another man on the cheek and gaze into his eyes and calls off the wedding, only to discover later the man is her brother. A woman learns her boyfriend’s tumultuous break up with her happens because he’s found out some devastating news: He’s suffering from an illness that will take all his energy to battle, and he doesn’t want to burden her. The possibilities are endless.

If you have a novella-length story for one or more decades, e-mail editor Cheryl Pierson at prairierosepublications@yahoo.com. Both published and un-published storytellers are welcome to submit.

The line will debut in 2016.
