Amish Romance Guidelines

Word count: 70,000-95,000

 

Though we are open to either contemporary or historical time periods, we are interested only in stories that allow the reader to be immersed in the beliefs of the Amish people. The author should be familiar with Amish theology as well as Amish customs and the lifestyle. While it is important that any Amish character dress and act appropriately, it is also important that specific beliefs be honored as well which include much more than just not using electricity or not wanting their picture taken. 

 

These stories should be third-person POV only and may be told from multiple points of view as long as each point of view is separated by a scene. No multiple points of view should be in one scene.  

 

We are not looking for graphic violence, explicit sexual scenes, or extreme language. Though physical and emotional attraction is welcome, all love scenes must be closed door and can only take place between married couples. 

 

All stories should have a Happy Ever After ending. 

 

To give you a hint on the type of stories we're looking for, check out movies like Witness and The Shunning.
