Earlier this year, I volunteered to coordinate the 2023 Passionate Ink charity romance anthology. Last year’s, with the release of Holiday Shorts, was a huge success, raising over $2,300 for ProLiteracy, and wanted a great way to give back to the writing organization that has been so supportive and helped me get published.

So, I wanted to let you all know that submissions are officially open for this fantastic members-only anthology. There’s more info on the PI website (linked below), but in a nutshell, the stories need to be no longer than 10,000 words, and must have a summer theme. That’s open for interpretation. Full submission rules can be found HERE.

We’re shooting for a release date of August 1st. I’m seriously so excited for this–I know there a lot of charity romance anthologies out there, but this is the only one I’m organizing, and I’m very proud of how it’s going so far.
