We ask that the contract be signed within 24-48 hours of joining the group. If you need time for the fee, we are willing to consider requests on an individual basis. Please contact us to discuss options.
You are responsible for publishing your book on time (based on your chosen date) you choose to publish in. You retain all rights and royalties to your book. Our participation contract will be emailed to you upon receipt of your submitted interest.
This series has no end date like anthologies do, so you would leave the book up indefinitely. The participation fee covers your entry fee and book cover that will be created by our designated designer.
We will not be asking for part of your royalties or rights, you retain them ALL. Just make sure that you or your publisher has the book up and available on the publishing date, as previously stated. Pre-orders ARE allowed.
Your story must:
- be a romcom
- have a cliche title
