Work must be new & exclusive to the Anthology
 No snippets or continuation of prior work.

You will need to self edit & proof your submission.

After the Anthology, work can be published as a separate work by the author and continued on if you wanted to turn it into a series.

Story MUST be a romance that matches the theme of the anthology. 

Submission should have some dark elements to represent the dark romance genre. It does NOT need to be a dark romance, but should have some elements of darkness. (For example Wicked Lies Boy Tell, a dark element being the abusive father) 


MUST actively participate in sharing of the Anthology, and Anthology events (Teasers, Trailers, Cover & Title Reveals.)  If no participation, an additional fee will be incurred for additional ads that need to be taken out.


Custom photoshoot will be done through TalkNerdy, the photos will be used for the cover, teasers, trailers and formatting to have the models consistent in matching for the Anthology. Teasers that are story specific will have stock photos. Photos will be exclusive the anthology and anthology authors only. They will not be sold outside of the participating authors. If you would like a photo from the shoot for your cover you will have the opportunity to purchase one at a discounted rate if you would like your cover to match the anthology couple. After the Anthology is completed & unpublished, the photos will only be used for RAD & TalkNerdy marketing/promotional purpose.


The line up is invite only with limited open slots for applications. To be considered, you will need to submit a sample of the submission you would like to include in the Anthology.
