Corinne’s Submission Calls – Summer Lovin’
Yippee, it’s June! I love this time of year – the beginning
of summer – warm evenings with a glass of wine on the front porch after the
kids are asleep, my pup at my feet, the smell of lilac and storms. Tired, but a
good tired, after fitting as much as possible into one summer day.
Where I am in the north, our twilight will stretch until
10:30pm around the summer solstice. My enjoyment for this time of year is
deeply rooted from when I was a wee thing. My mum allowed us to play outside
until the street lights came on, so you can imagine my anticipation and thrill
of long June nights.
June is the time for love. Flowers are blooming, birds are
singing, sunset skies and stargazing. Everyone is feeling a little frisky after
a long winter in hibernation. Summer romance is on the horizon – the
possibilities exciting.   
So, I’m looking for some Summer Lovin’ – stories with great
sexual tension, action and adventure – from sweet to steamy.
Even if none of the below
fit your manuscript, I am still happy to take a look, or you can submit it
directly to the Lyrical Editorial team at:
First Days – I use this term a lot, and I’m not
sure if I’ve made it up or heard it from somewhere else. I’m looking for
stories that really focus on the passion and excitement of falling in love: the
butterflies, the wonderment and confusion. The time in life that rarely can be
repeated – all the great emotion and buzz that resonates in your gut when you
know something is building, something inescapable, something that will change
your life.
Sports – I’d love to see sport involved in a
romance – from football to fencing, soccer to swimming, rodeo to rugby. Bring
on your sexy athletes and make ‘em sweat it out on the field or in the bedroom.
Travel – I’m partial to stories set in Scotland,
Ireland, England and Australia whether they are contemporary, historical, or fantasy,
but any exotic destination will do. Or a good “on the road” story full of
discovery and growth.
Keep in mind, I am always on the lookout for the following genres:
Contemporary (from sweet to sexy), Historical, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, and
anything that falls under the Lyrical Lines: Entice, Embrace, Once Upon and especially
Hometown Heroes – I have a soft spot for men in uniform.
I look forward to hearing from you. Go on – sweeten my
