Gay Short Stories Welcome : All Romance's $1,000 Just One Bite Short Story Contest 201

Post date: 25 June 2011
Deadline: 1 September 2011

The owners of the eBook retailer ARe announced today that submissions will open July 1 for the Just One Bite Short Story Contest. Interested writers should visit All Romance for complete details and the submission form.

Last year's contest featured works from all sub-genres of paranormal r0mance, from sweet to er0tic, contemporary to historical, gay to multiple-partn3r, and more, all sharing the common elements found in paranormal romance and of course that happy ending readers love. The contestants ranged from writers with NY contracts and extensive backlists to others who have yet to be published.

2011 Short Story Contest

Authors wanted for All Romance's Just One Bite Short Story Contest! We are very excited about this contest. Thirty-two of the short stories submitted will be deemed "Semi-Finalists" and released onto the AllRomance.com and OmniLit.com websites on October 1, 2011.

Readers will vote for their favorite short stories during 5 rounds of voting with the field being narrowed at the end of each round. The first prize winning author will receive $1000 US. The second prize winning author will receive an iPad 2. The third prize winning author will receive a $100 eBook Bucks Gift Certificate redeemable either at AllRomance.com or OmniLit.com.

Submissions will be accepted between July 1 and September 1, 2011. Each title must be an original, never before published paranormal romance work between 2,500 and 3,000 words and will be marketed exclusively by All Romance/OmniLit. Authors can access the terms and submissions forms via this page. Authors need to complete all fields to the best of their ability at the time of submission. Cat Johnson will be the Editor-In-Charge for the Contest and will lead the committee that will make the final decision on September 1 as to which submissions will be chosen as the Semi-Finalists. Stories selected as one of the 32 will be released for voting on October 1.

Authors should keep in mind that we will not be editing these manuscripts. They must have them edited PRIOR to submission.

We anticipate having more wonderful stories than we have slots for. If a story is not chosen as a Semi-Finalist, rights will be returned.
