Love Stories

"We all love stories about how love started and blossomed; stories about dating, romance, love, and marriage. We are looking for true stories and poems about your soulmate, your true love, on-line dating, blind dates, the one that got away, re-connecting after years, and all the ups and downs of your love life. Stories can be serious or hilarious, or both."

You will also become part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul family and will be entitled to buy cases of your books from us at half price.
