Quarter Castle Publishing is making a Call for Submissions for short stories laced with romance for its first issue of The Tantalizing Tattler.
The Tantalizing Tattler is a new publication meant to revive the clean-telling of stories laced with romance. It was inspired by magazines of the past, ones girls as young as 14 had sneaked away from their mother’s nightstand and hid in closets to read. While these stories were about adults in adult situations, they were void of descriptions of bedroom activities and harsh language. At their essence, they told a good story. That’s what The Tantalizing Tattler aims to do.

Jan returned the digital camera to the display cabinet. She rearranged the matching 55mm lens, adjusted the case and propped up the price sign that had fallen when she extracted the item to show a customer.
The countdown had begun: fifteen shopping days left until Christmas, including today. Saturdays had been the busiest shopping day of the week until that MacDonald premier decided to make it a free-for-all and allow shops to open every day of the year except November 11th. Retail employees weren’t guaranteed to get any statutory holiday off to spend with their family.
“Excuse me.” A customer leant over the counter and peered down at Jan. “Do you do camera repairs?”
Jan turned to face the young man with blonde hair streaked with purple dye and an earring the size of the CN Tower sticking out of his nose. “We don’t repair on site; we send them to our branch at Bayer’s Lake. What’s wrong with your camera?”
The second romance by Diane Lynn McGyver is coming just in time for Christmas.
Jan Cooper doesn’t believe in Santa Claus. The jolly old elf had failed to deliver the one true gift her heart desired. The single mom’s only wish is for Christmas to pass quickly, so life can return to normal, and she can forget about the two men who had disappointed her most: St. Nick and her ex-husband.
Delanie Taylor is regional manager for Dreamland of Toys. Divorced and struggling to control his teenage daughter and overbearing ex-wife, he has no time for romance. When he meets Jan’s daughter at the toy store searching for the perfect gift for her mother, he unknowingly discovers the perfect gift for himself.
Here is the first chapter of Twistmas – The Season of Love.
