Curious Hearts Anthology

Any genre or gender or heat level, keep with theme.

Release July 2011

Wouldn't you be curious if your heart, your destiny had gone into a different direction?

You care for your 'significant other' but every once in a great while when life sends frustrations your way, don't you ever wonder what would have happened had you...?

Write a story of how destiny or your character's life might have been altered; would it be good or bad?

Be aware. Melange publishes erotica, not porn. Know the difference. We do not accept any defaming and nauseating things such as incest, underage characters in illegal and immoral situations, or anything non-consensual or of a violently graphic nature.

Please include heat level: Sweet, Sensual, Hot, Scorching

Shorts are published in e-book format only-under 40,000 words, unless included within an anthology, which are available in print format.

Print works are 40,000 words and above.

Please send only first three chapters of a novel, novella or complete short story if under 15,000 words. Also send a short 25-50 word blurb and a short synopsis of your story or novel. If any manuscript does not adhere to these guidelines, we will not read it, but will reject. We love working with both new and established authors.

Contact Nancy Schumacher at Submissions@Melange-Books.com for information or questions about the call for submissions for the anthology.
