Enter the Love Kissed Books Magazine Short Story Contest

11282491_1862445630646605_985444846_oMaybe you’re an author who wants more exposure.  Maybe you’re a reader who has always wanted to try writing.  Maybe you’re just bored.  Whatever your reason, take moment to enter the Love Kissed Books Short Story Contest.

Every month, we’ll share a short story prompt.  We’ll give you a deadline.  The length limit will be the same: 5k.  No, not a run.  Just five thousand sweet words for your short story romance.

A few rules and all the contest information you can handle.  

1. No erotica.  Erotic romance is great.  Hard core smut doesn’t really go with our magazine.

2. No more than 5,000 words.

3. Send us your ORIGINAL work.  It doesn’t matter if it has been previously published.

4. Send us your best possible work.  Take a moment to edit and proofread.  No, don’t go hire someone, but have a friend follow behind you and help you out.  All the coolest authors do it.

Why should you enter?

Lots of reasons!  First, we have a fast growing readership.  We guarantee you will get many many many eyes on your work.  This is a wonderful way to kick off a series, career, or try out a new hobby.

We’ll pick our three favorite short stories to publish in the following issue of the magazine.  You’ll receive author credit, a bio box, and your social media links. And, at the end of the year, we’ll put together an anthology of short stories, make them available on Amazon.  We’ll do our best to promote the heck out of you.  We’re pretty good at that.

Not only that, but one of those selected as winners during the year will win a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

Freedom car travel concept - woman relaxing with feet out of window in cool convertible vintage car. Girl relaxing enjoying free holidays road trip.

June Topic: Road Trip

Deadline: June 21st

Take a moment and write us a romantic story about a road trip.  Think summer fun.  Think self-discovery.  Think…whatever you want.  It’s your story.  Take any approach.  Write in any tense.  Pick any romance genre.  (Paranormal romance, romantic suspense, urban fantasy, new adult, coming of age, college, contemporary, erotic romance…)  Just keep it to 5,000 words or less.  Then, send it our way.
