Winding Road Stories is preparing its first anthology for publication in 2023!

Would I Lie to You will be a collection of crime fiction/noir short stories inspired by the music of
the legendary pop group, Eurythmics.

If you would like to submit a story for consideration for the anthology, here are the guidelines:

Each short story should be 2,000-4,000 words in length.

The work should be a completed short story and not an excerpt from previous work.

The story should be inspired by the title of a Eurythmics song. (If you would like to know whether a song has already been claimed with a completed story, please contact us.)

Please do not submit any sexually graphic material.

Stories for consideration are due no later than August 31, 2023.

Each author will receive three copies of the anthology for their work.

All proceeds from the book will go to a charity approved by the finalized group of authors.

If you have any questions about the anthology or would like to submit a story, please send it to our editorial director, Michael Dolan at

Good luck to all!
