New Market: Love Stories Magazine

I happen to be rather fond of romance short stories--both reading and writing them. However the market tend to be limited. there are a few anthologies, some sigle e-short markets and some magazine who might slot a story in between the recipes and the horoscopes. There also seems to be something afoot over at Grass Roots Magazines with a new magazine in the works called Love stories.

"The overall theme should involve short stories of love and romance. These stories may be contemporary, historic, inspirational, paranormal, or any other theme as long as love and romance are the main thrust of the story. Story length should range from 3,000 to 5,000 Words. While we will accept any story having to do with love and romance, we are currently seeking stories with some sexuality incorporated into the plot to stimulate interest and allow the reader to live vicariously. However, stories should not be overtly graphic or pornographic in nature. Suggestive phrases should be used in the place of reference to body parts and inappropriate language."

Payment is $300 for a story and $50-75 for a poem (a paying romance poetry market, that's like finding a unicorn!).
