TWRP - New Series Call For Submissions

The following is a new series TWRP is kicking off for LROS (Last Rose Of Summer) line. There is a yahoo loop devoted to the details. If interested, please follow the appropriate submission guidelines or ask questions through the same to Please feel free to spread this to your writing loops, etc.

Did you ever wonder what happened to . . .

The Prom Queen? The guy most likely to serve time in a federal prison? The couple voted most likely to succeed?

If intrigued with the opportunity to rewrite a bit of history . . . or exact a little revenge. . . .

The Last Rose of Summer invites you to a reunion of The Class of '85

Dear fellow alumna,

Hard to believe it's been 25 years since we last walked the halls of Summerville High. Wouldn't you like to know what's going on with former classmates?

The Reunion Committee has worked hard to plan a fabulous, fun-filled three day celebration on the last weekend in June at the historic Summerville Inn.

Come for one day or all three—but register early for the SHS package discount. Bring your spouse or come stag. You won't believe the surprises waiting for you!


Details which must be included in every submission:
  • Summerville is a medium size city on the shores of Lake Ontario in Western New York State.
  • Some students may still live in Summerville, others might be returning for the first time since graduation. They might make it back for the celebration; they might not.
  • The above invitation will kick off the story but it is the concept of "whatever happened to . . ." which is the key element.
  • The reunion might be one feature of the story, only a side-note as in a 'regrets-only' RSVP phone call. The common thread among all Class of '85 stories will be the invitation above. It is up to the author to take it from there.
  • The Hero or Heroine [or both] must be a member of the Class of '85.
* Story length: 7,500—40,000 computer word count
* Sensuality level: sweet to sensual [no erotica]
* As always, it MUST be a romance with protagonists who have realistic goals, motivation and conflict—along with a HEA ending.

Submit to: with "Class of '85" in the subject line.
