Call for submissions: Bad-boy Rockers and Soulful Sirens

It was The Bard who said, “If music be the food of love, play on”.

And yet every grrrl loves her a tall, dark and looming bad-boy rocker. Maybe it’s the way he caresses the neck of his guitar, the scent of his leather jacket or the way he looks right at you from the stage, straight into your heart when he sings about what he wants to do to you.

Your mama told you he was trouble, but you gravitated toward him anyway.

Or maybe you’re that grrrl who’s flying in the face of conventions. You’ve got your guitar, a head full of tunes and you’re doing Patti Smith proud, singing about that love you just never seem to find.

Heartbreak, heavy riffs, love and the blues, underpinned by late nights in dusty small towns with the dry taste of whiskey on your tongue--musicians catch the eyes and steal hearts. Those who make music might show one face to their audience, but quite another to the people close to them. Here’s your chance to share their stories and the love of music that led them to follow the road to fame and fortune.

Works between 30 000 to 95 000 words will be considered, in the genres of contemporary romance to urban fantasy with strong romantic themes. See http://www.lyricalpress.com/submissions.php for submission details or email nerine@lyricalpress.com for further information.
