OakTara Publishers is Looking for Stories!

From OakTara:

We Want the Best-of-the-Best Romances For a Special Romance Anthology! (short-story fiction) SUBMISSION DEADLINE: October 1, 2012

Want to get your foot in the door in publishing? Or to expand your current publishing credits? OakTara Publishers is looking for new authors and growing authors like you who have a flair for writing heart-warming and inspiring romance short stories.

Stories can be set in contemporary or historical settings. All entries must be written from the perspective of a Christian world view but to reach a broad audience (including those who wouldn’t necessarily understand “Christian terminology/jargon”), be a romance between a man and a woman, and must follow OakTara guidelines for sensuality/sexuality (see Writers’ Guidelines under Writers’ Corner tab on our homepage). We’re looking for the best-of-the-best fictional romance stories to include in a special romance anthology that will be available through OakTara (www.oaktara.com and www.facebook.com/OakTara) and selected distributors for Christmas 2012.

If your story is chosen, you’ll receive a royalty percentage of net retail sales, plus a complimentary copy of the book. And you’ll be a published author, with a credit to add to your growing publishing résumé!

Stay posted to Tell Us About on www.oaktara.com for other opportunities to be published beyond this book!

Send ONE EMAIL with “Best Fiction Romances” in the subject line to tellusabout@oaktara.com. Include an attachment in Word (with all of the following in one file): 1) the title of your story; 2) your name as you’d wish it to be published; 3) a story of 1500-2500 words; and 4) a 30-50 word author bio, including a personal website or blog link (if available). All entries must be written from the perspective of a Christian worldview but to reach a broad audience (those who wouldn’t necessarily understand “Christian terminology/jargon”). For additional info, go to: www.oaktara.com, click on “Tell us about” on our homepage or Writers’ Corner/Anthologies.

We anticipate hearing from you!
