* NOTE * We will begin publishing stories to this lines as soon as quality manuscripts are submitted. Our goal is to release these stories on a rolling schedule at least once a month as manuscripts are accepted.
Animals can be a great judge of character, and sometimes they know before we do if someone is perfect for us. We want stories about man’s best friend playing matchmaker–not just dogs, but cats, horses, goats, birds, any kind of animal that might help break the ice between two lonely hearts looking for love. Or maybe they weren’t looking, but Fluffy or Fido knows better. A rider’s horse throws a shoe every time a sexy farrier is visiting the stable. A cat gets stuck in a tree, and his owner falls for the hunky fireman who shows up to rescue him. How are these men drawn together because of their love of animals?
Individual stories will have a unique cover with a similar theme to tie them together. Stories over 40,000 words that sell more than 50 copies in electronic format will also be released in paperback.
All stories submitted must adhere to the general guidelines found on our website. We do not consider multiple or simultaneous submissions. Detailed submission guidelines can be found on our site at JMS Books.
