That’s right. This year, Loose Id is all about you, our Iddies — our family, friends, and fans. You know all about us, and now it’s time for us to get to know you.
To kick things off, we have a Very Idportant Question for you.
Yes, yes, yes, you’re exhausted, hungover, watching parades, kids, football, binging on Netflix and leftover party foods. Candy Crush and Candy Crush Soda are about the speed your brain is working at. It’s an easy question, though, and it comes with rewards.
See, this is a very special submission call. Instead of Treva and Allie telling our authors what to write for our summer beach read collection, YOU get to.
Yes, you read that right. And no, I’m not lying when I say it’s easy. Take thirty seconds to think about your favorite books. Now, tell me, in just a few words:
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ROMANCE TROPES?
What’s a trope? Things like “rags to riches” or “fish out of water” or “friends to lovers”. You know, the “story” you’ll read again and again without getting bored as long as the details are different. Here’s a list from Mindy Klasky at http://www.mindyklasky.com/index.php/for-writers/romance-tropes/ and if you have WAY too much time on your hands, you could check out: TVTropes.
When I’ve got a list of YOUR favorite tropes, our authors will start writing. No guarantees, but we’ll do our best to get at least one story per trope to stock your
beach bag e-reader.
Ready? Set. Go! (Just post ’em here in the comments.)
Note: One trope per Iddie, please. Feel free to suggest to friends if you’ve got more than one. Try not to get too specific, as authors will have to disregard any details to avoid copyright issues.
Second, More Interesting Note: A couple of lucky Iddies will win a free book of their choosing. The more Iddies who comment, the more books I’ll give away.
