Mmmm. How yummy can delicious foodie romance be? If you’re like me, and the Food Network is a favorite channel, then maybe you’ll want to slip out of the kitchen and in front of the computer. I’ve put together quite the eclectic mix this month, with calls for submissions from the writing worlds of science fiction to Harlequin’s Love Inspired line to Smut by the Sea. Enjoy the inspiration, and please let me know any success stories!
EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing: Professor Challenger Anthology
A broad range of new and original stories built around Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s LOST WORLD character Professor George Edward Challenger. Stories derived from the aftermath of events in the Lost World are welcome; however, simply revisiting or rehashing the Lost World without good cause is not. Challenger is a man of science first and foremost, not an explorer.
Deadline: May 31, 2012; short story: 1,000 to 7,500 words; novelette: 7,500-10,000 words.
Food Flair
Do you adore the Food Network? Do Bobby Flay and Rocco DiSpirito titillate your senses when they caress a flank steak, whip cream to a sensual cloud, or lay a beautiful table? Does a man’s skill in the kitchen impress and delight you as much as the way he kisses?


Then we want you to write a Foodie romance for Decadent Publishing!

Foodie romance focuses on romance, but food would win the prize for best supporting character. Maybe the heroine is a chef or a food critic, or maybe the hero just appreciates a meal masterfully prepared for maximum enjoyment. Like any art form, the Culinary Arts can be enjoyed as a sensual experience, exciting to the eyes and pleasing to the palate. Whether your taste is gourmet Kobe burgers in Seattle, European pastries in Salzburg, or delicate sushi in Sunagawa, foodie romance is about the culture of cuisine and the people who enjoy it.


Our general submission guidelines apply to this category. When submitting, please note that it is a Foodie romance. For more information, visit http://www.decadentpublishing.com and click on Submissions.

Love Inspired
The Love Inspired line is Harlequin’s series of contemporary, inspirational romances that feature Christian characters facing the many challenges of life and love in today’s world. Books run 55,000-60,000 words.
Each story should have an emotional, satisfying and mature romance; however, the characters should not make love unless they are married. These are “sweet” romances. Any physical interactions (i.e., kissing, hugging) should emphasize emotional tenderness rather than sexual desire or sensuality. Please avoid any mention of nudity.
All stories should focus on one hero and heroine who meet as early in the book as possible. The hero and heroine should be on the page together in the first chapter—the first page is even better. By the end of the story the main characters should be in a committed relationship.
Because Love Inspired sells to both CBA and ABA bookstores, we must adhere to CBA conventions. The stories may not include alcohol consumption by Christian characters, card playing, gambling or games of chance (including raffles), explicit scatological terms, hero and heroine remaining overnight together alone, Halloween celebrations, magic or the mention of intimate body parts. Lying is also problematic in the CBA market and characters who are Christian should avoid lying or deceiving others. Exceptions can be made but must be approved by an editor.
