Submission Call From Liquid Silver Books

I Need a Hero

When you think of classic romance, what stories stick in your mind? What do all the best-loved stories have in common? We think that special something is a Hero.

Liquid Silver Books is looking for stories that feature Heroes. Whether these Heroes are on the nightly news, or unnoticed, or hidden as they go about their work, they all deserve that one person who’s not only their perfect partner, but who also brings them a very special “happily ever after.”

These stories’ protagonists must be strong and capable, but should not be perfect – they should feel real, complex, with normal faults and problems, and they should learn important lessons about themselves as they fight to overcome the odds. There can be strong secondary characters, but the building relationship between the protagonists while they battle an intense and gripping conflict or villain must be the main thrust of the story.

Heroes stories can fall within any heat level, fitting our Platinum, Sterling, Liquid, or Molten guidelines - see for more information on our heat levels. But they are romance stories, not erotica - there must be a strong and compelling story linking everything together, not a series of sex scenes. They must be 15K or longer, and can take place in any setting, from small town America to the vast light years of outer space. They can include paranormal elements, such as shifters or alternate worlds, but the underlying Heroes theme must ring true.

Do you have a larger-than-life Hero fighting against all odds in your latest manuscript? If so, we want to see it. We think strong ethics and leadership are in greater need today than ever, and we want to tell stories that showcase these qualities and entice our readers to add new books to their list of favorites.

If you have any questions, drop me an email - Georgia at . Oh, and feel free to distribute to your favorite author-ly gathering places.

So. my house has been on the market for a little over a week now.  For Sale.  I hate it.  First of all, I have a certain amount of anxiety about making this move. I'm excited about it. Really excited. But, I'm comfortable here. I have friends and a routine. The children have doctors that I already trust.  I know all of these are not unsurmountable issues.  I'll work it all out. And all of the reasons to move are so wonderful that I really am excited to do so.

But the walking through my current house. And what the buyers think and want...its frustrating to me in a way that it shouldn't be.

You see I spent a lot of time working on this house. Getting it to where it is now and hearing that someone doesn't like something about it?  Its hard.  I have to get my kids and my dogs out every time a buyer wants to take a look.

I realize I'm whining.  Forgive me.  Soon this will all be behind me and, I know, it will all be worth it.  But in the mean time,  it turns out I'm not that good at selling a house.

Six Sentence Sunday

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Here are my 6 for this week...

“Alright, Joe. What do we have in common?” 
Now his cheeks burned. Maybe because her violet eyes seemed to pierce right into his soul, or perhaps it had been a really long time since he’d had sex, but Kaylee Post turned him on. In a major way. 
“Well, um…”
