It’s Not All About Love

Hearts, bleh! Roses, double bleh! Chocolate…ummm, okay so it’s not all bleh about Valentine’s Day. Some find this holiday in February to be nothing but a big pain in the butt. What could happen when two guys bond over their HATE for this holiday? Why could it be love?

Submissions should:

  • Have at least one lead character that HATES Valentine’s Day
  • Be a minimum of 10k, maximum of 20k (we’re looking for quick, shorts)
  • Any subgenre is welcome and all prohibitive guidelines are observed

Submissions due by January 3, 2014

Submissions should be sent to

Any questions can be sent to Kris Jacen at
