About

We're in love with love.

We think animals are people.

We proudly publish romance and rom com short stories of 1500 words or less.

Creds:

We are traditional and self-published authors who love short stories. We have shorts published in a variety of magazines and strive to be a place to celebrate romance and rom com works.

Our (Short) Story:

As people who write short stories for fun, inspiration, contests, or as way to connect with our readers and other writers, we realized there weren't so many places to submit romance and rom com shorts. These stories don't exactly fit the literary or sci fi market, and many in the romance world don't focus much on shorts. Thus, we founds ourselves lost in vacuous purgatory with our irreverent, sexy stories. Romance and rom com short fiction deserves a home, a dang good one if we might add, and we aim to be that.

Because seriously, who doesn't like reading a well-written piece about finding love in a mosh pit or in the midst of a fender bender?
