Call for Submissions - Love Letters from the Heart 2

In 2012, our publisher Tracy Ruckman compiled an anthology she published through Pix-N-Pens Publishing. The book was entitled Love Letters from the Heart.

Tracy retained the rights to the book when she handed over the reins of PNP and WIP, and will re-release that book within the next couple of weeks, under the TMP imprint.

Today, we announce a call for submissions for the sequel, Love Letters from the Heart 2, which will release in February 2018.

Have you ever longed to share your heart - your testimony - with someone, but couldn't work up the nerve to do so? Well, now is your chance. We are currently compiling testimonies - in letter format - for Love Letters from the Heart 2, to be released February 2018.

You may submit a new letter if you were in the first book, but we will not reprint the same letter. You may submit a letter you submitted previously, but realize that if the letter wasn't chosen the first time, the reasons for non-selection this time might still apply, so consider carefully before sending a previous entry.

The testimonies/letters should be 1,000 words or less, written in the form of a letter to someone with whom you want to share the Gospel and/or your testimony.

The printed letters will be universal, and won't have names connected to them, you'll be writing them anonymously. Keep in mind that although you are writing the letter to someone specific, our goal is for the letters to resonate with someone who might need to hear/read what you have to say - whether you know that person or not.

Anyone who contributes to the book will have his/her name and a brief bio listed in the back of the book. If the writer chooses to share which testimony is his/her own, they are welcome to do so, but they are not required to do so. The scope of the book should appeal to a wide variety of people - so that it may be given to people who might be traveling similar paths.

Writers whose testimonies are selected for the book will receive a $25 honorarium, a copy of the book upon publication, and a steep discount on purchases of that book.

Deadline for submissions is December 15, 2017. Please submit your letter as a Word document attached to an e-mail, and send to Tracy Ruckman at: info@TMPbooks.com with the subject line: LOVE LETTERS 2. Letters will be printed anonymously in the book, but they should not be sent anonymously.

In the body of the e-mail, please include a short bio (100 words or less), and up to two links (website/blog/social media), and your shipping address. If you prefer not to have your name and/or bio listed in the book at all, please state that in your original e-mail, and if your entry is selected, we will abide by your wishes.

You may submit up to three letters for consideration.

Receipt of entry will be acknowledged; writers of chosen entries will be notified by mid-January.
