DSP Open Call


"Evergreen" 2012 Advent Calendar - A Story a Day in the Month of December
Edited by Lynn West

When it comes to romance, ageless images are carried forever in your heart: A candle in the window burning bright. Warmth billowing from an old stone hearth. Snowflakes falling from the night sky under a full moon. Twinkle lights glinting in a lover’s eyes. Romance during the winter holidays is evergreen, and these stories will get you in the mood for love. Your Christmas present to yourself!

Editor's Note: Because of the packaged nature of the set, all stories need to stand alone. No sequels to or spin-offs of previously published works, please.


Submission Deadline: Sept. 1, 2012
Publication Date: December 2012
Story length: 5,000 - 18,000 words

Manuscripts shorter or longer will be considered but will have to be extraordinary. Follow general Submission Guidelines for instructions and formatting. Send all submissions to submissions@dreamspinnerpress.com. List the anthology title in the subject line of your e-mail. Ex: Advent Calendar anthology submission

  2. I may try to write a short story. I had an idea for a Christmas theme--if only I can recall it.

    Jo! I got my first royalty check in the mail this morning on my pre-dawn (yesterday morning) walk with Benny -- we hike out about 5 a.m. to take in the stars and night sounds...morning sounds. I felt so happy to see the check, and then cried a little because my mentor and life's friend, my encourager for ever writing in the first place, had passed away July 6th. Then I smiled and laughed and realized he could see it coming, and I didn't! I liked the surprise. I wanted to share with you! Thanks for all the inspiration and encouragement! It helped a lot!

    I'm rich!

    1. So happy for you!!!! I knew you could do it, just like you believed I could. Funny who we can see things in others but can't always see what they see in us. :)

      Big Hugs and a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!
      XOXO
