This month features one call for submission with â€œbite,â€ a first-time vampire anthology by Ravenous Romance, a nostalgic look back at mixed tapes and a new shared world series on Cupidâ€™s Conquest.
Okay, be honestâ€¦how many made one? Had one given to them? What? You donâ€™t know what Iâ€™m talking about? Way back when, when you needed to tell that special someone how you felt instead of writing a note you put together a compilation cassette tape of MUSIC. Songs that reminded you of that special someone, songs that told them how you felt so you didnâ€™t have to say it to their face (just in case they didnâ€™t feel the same). Iâ€™m putting together a MIXED TAPE of stories inspired by love songs (especially from the 1980s). So break out those cassette tapes, acid wash jeans and neon colors.
Range between 5 and 40k
Be inspired by a love song that plays a part in the story (some suggestions: Air Supply, Chicago, REO Speedwagon, Duran Duran, to name just a few)
Flashbacks, paranormal, contemporary, historical (okay, is the 1980s really historical?) all welcome
Must abide by MLR submission guidelines (M/M)
Stories due by March 15, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org
