“It’s a Love Story, Baby Just Say Yes!”

~ Taylor Swift


…and whether that “love story” is about a person OR a dog, read on!! Rocket Science Productions, LLC. is currently accepting submission of essays and true stories for two separate book projects. I’m helping them to do so!

One is a compilation of real life stories of TRUE LOVE. Do you LOVE sharing your “how-we-met” story? Do you want to commemorate your wedding vows? Was your proposal straight out of a romance novel? Is your whole life reminiscent of a romantic comedy? Has your partner been there for you in a tough time? Are they overseas and you want to surprise them with this special gift? Or, do you want to tell that special someone how you feel? Then send it over! RSP, LLC will publish YOUR story of love in a nationally published book out just in time for Valentine’s Day! To learn more follow @RSPLoveStories on Twitter and like them on Facebook, here.

If the love of your life is a four-legged furry friend, then the other book project might just be for you! Rocket Science Productions is also seeking submissions for a collection of true DOG stories! Has your pet saved your life, literally OR figuratively speaking? Is your dog REALLY man’s best friend? Do you have an amazing, unbelievable, inspiring, touching, heartwarming, funny or adorable story about your pooch? We want you to share the good, the bad, the ugly, and the cute about your canine companions! Please, send the story our way – we’d “woof” to read your true doggie “tails!”  Follow @TrueDogStories on Twitter and “like” them on Facebook, here.

There is NO NEED to be a “professional” writer. For both books, we want the work to be that of real, everyday people like you and me….that’s what makes them TRUE stories, after all! Plus, we’ll edit for grammar and typos.

Show your love how important they are to you – whether dog or human – by sharing your story as part of a real PUBLISHED BOOK!

For further information or to submit, email: pghmediabutterfly@gmail.com.

Other titles by Rocket Science Productions include: For the Troops, the Imprinted Souls series, the Numbers Elementary series, and, their hallmark, the Stanley and Norman Bad Boy Basset Brothers books.

We can’t wait to hear what YOU have to contribute!
