                           CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS




This book is currently under review for a Fall 2015 publishing date.


The romantic relationships of women of faith are often complicated, whether you are single or married, the pastor of the church, first lady, a minister or a women steeped in your convictions with no affiliation. The choices that women of faith make in their romantic relationships are seldom discussed because there is still the perception that a woman of faith is not a romantic, sexual being.  This anthology will explore the intricacies of women of faith, how they love, whom they love and why they love them.  The book will explore the choices of women in their mate selection, marriage, dating, being celibate or choosing not to, yet still living their lives walking in their purpose honoring God.


The final product will be 20-30 stories of women of varying ages, racial ethnic backgrounds, religions, marital statuses and will provide a first person account of their experiences.
