Posted: Thursday, January 31, 2002

Do you have a heart-warming, insightful and-or funny story about romantic love?

The authors of the New York Times and USA Today Bestsell-ing book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, are seeking stories to include in the upcoming book "Chicken Soup for the Romantic Soul." So far, Chicken Soup for the Soul titles have sold more than 50 million copies, literally transforming the lives of readers from all walks of life.

What makes a good Chicken Soup for the Soul story?

A Chicken Soup story is an inspirational, sometimes emotional, often humorous, true story that opens the heart and rekindles the spirit. It is the personal account of an event, a relationship, a lesson learned or a dream fulfilled that helps the reader discover basic principles they can use in their own lives.

Maybe it recounts the moment you fell in love for the first time in high school, a hilarious memory of your lover that always puts a smile on your face, a heartfelt moment when your partner's strength helped you through a difficult time, a story of the little things that keep a long-term relationship new ... the joy of falling in love late in life, or any story about romantic love that makes the reader feel more positive, more connected and better about life in general.

Some of the chapters that will be include are the first kiss, falling in love, daily romance, hilarious memories, special moments, overcoming obstacles, family, keeping the flame alive and late-blooming romances.

If you have a romantic love story and would like to be included in the book, send your stories to: Chicken Soup for the Romantic Soul, 2425 E. Camelback Rd, No. 515, Phoenix, AZ 85016, fax to (602) 508-8912 or e-mail to chickensoup@ Materials will not be returned.

The average to maximum word count is 750 to 1,200 words. For each story selected in the book, a 50-word biography will be included about the author and a permission fee of $300 will be paid for one-time rights.

There are no limits to the number of submissions. The deadline for receipt of stories is Feb. 18.
