Romance in the Dark  February 5, 2010 - August 31, 2010

Reading and Deliberating


Short stories of dark/paranormal romance. Please do not submit any twilightesque entries. I will not consider pieces where vampires sparkle like christmas ornaments. If you're writing vampires, I want cursed beings who stalk the search of the essence of life itself, and that which will forever be beyond their reach...salvation. But, those who think outside the box (vampires, werewolves, ghosts) will most certainly get my attention!

Contest will run through the end of March. Two submissions per contestant. No books, chapters or poetry please.
