Itâ€™s about men this month, whether the theme is the new line from Elloraâ€™s Cave, EC for Men, about sexy, strong hunks in uniform, or the strength of a king or lord.
Men in Uniform Anthology
Silver Publishing has started a new line, Men in Uniform, and are seeking submissions for 2012. Hereâ€™s the breakdown:
â€¢ 15K to 20K word count per short story/novella. 4 books per Anthology. â€¢ Seriously sexy stories about firemen, policemen, soldiers and sailors – we want to read some hot MM stories about men in…and out of uniform. â€¢ Any combination of M/F, M/F/M, M/M/F, M/M. â€¢ Heat Rating: 3+ Flames only!
Elloraâ€™s Cave is now accepting submissions for their new line EC for Men.
Â·7,000 to 30,000 words
Â·May contain relationships, but should focus more on the sex than the romance; Romantica is fine, Exotika is also encouraged
Â·Realistic wording and dialogue for male characters (not the language women WISH men spoke); this extends to the male narrative
Â·Written from male POV preferred
Â·Should be aimed at male sexual fantasies (what men think of when they get off)â€¨~ More of what men want or need from women: sex, love, acceptance, admiration, dirty talk; less of what they don’t need (judgment, drama, expectation of anticipating woman’s needs)
* Examples include, but are in no way limited to:
– Women taking the initiative during sex
– Female pursuit of the man
– Voyeurism of female/female sex (as well as F/M/F and F/F/M themes)
– Risky sexual situations or locations; a sense of the forbidden (e.g. the boss’s mistress, the maid, the college professor, sex in public, etc.)
Decadent Publishing is looking for stories for their new Honor Guard line, which is composed of contemporary, multi-national romance stories. Heat level of 3-5 and word count between 10k-25k.
Setting: Countries around the world. The hero can be any alpha male. Military or covert ops: Marines, MP, CIA, Homeland Security, NSA, etc.
Heroine can be an American or foreign national. Her age should be 25+. Wherever your setting, we need local flavor. Tap your travel experiences! Give us fun, adventure, romance, interesting settings, strong characters and hot lovin’, cultural insights.
Kingdoms of Desire: Erotic Tales of Fantasy
Kingdoms of Desire: Erotic Tales of Fantasy is a place where lust and legend abound, and adventure, passion and danger entwine. Think mystical lands and creatures, kings and queens, knights and renegades, heroes and villains, warlords, maidens and princesses. Think battles and danger, honor and dishonor, good and evil. Most of all think hearts filled with passion and secret desire. This is a place where romantic chivalry is alive and well, but so too is romantic wickedness. This is a place where the good do not always win, and the bad are often more captivating and desirable than their altruistic counterparts. In these lush and timeless landscapes, the battle for flesh can be as important as the battle for power. Intrigue, sorcery, revenge, lawlessness, dark secrets and mysterious elixirs; entanglements with supernatural beings â€“ everything is possible in these magical mythical landscapes. Think Game of Thrones and you get the picture!
Word count: 3,000 to 6,000 words. No reprints (be it print, digital, or online). Original fiction only. To be published by Cleis Press in autumn 2012. One-time payment in the range of USD $50-70 (payable on publication) and 2 copies of the anthology. Due by December 15, 2011. Visit http://mitziszereto.com for technical submission information.
