Quirk Books' "Looking For Love" Fiction Contest

Hello, writers. We’re Quirk Books.

We’ve brought you bestselling YA fantasies, Edgar award-winning mysteries, and masterpieces of zombie literature.

But looking back at all the weird and wonderful books we've published, we can't help but ask ourselves... where is the love

To answer that age-old question, we're announcing the Quirk Books “Looking for Love” Fiction Contest. First prize is $10,000 AND publication by Quirk Books. We’re looking for love stories that are fresh, fun, and strikingly unconventional. Boy Meets Girl. Girl Meets Girl. Girl Meets Shark. Shark Meets Pirate. Anything goes!

Except vampires. Sorry.

Win us over, knock us out, and show us what we're missing! The contest deadline is October 1st, 2013. For official rules and entry form, click the Download Entry Form button above. Good luck! 

UPDATE: I wanted to let everyone know that we've reached a decision regarding the Looking for Love Fiction Contest. If you haven't been contacted by a representative of Quirk Books, we encourage you to submit your manuscript elsewhere, and we wish you the best of luck placing your manuscript with another house. We would like to thank everyone for sharing their stories with us.
