OPEN SUBMISSION CALLS

Men in Uniform

There’s just something so irresistible about a man in uniform. They’re our heroes, whether they’re patrolling hostile territory, or standing at attention on parade. We’re looking for gripping stories about those LGBTQ characters who put their lives on the line to keep us safe, from mean city streets to distant war zones. 10-100,000 words in length. Series and serials welcomed.

Cowboys

Who can resist a cowboy? There’s no finer sight in the Wild West than a handsome man in a twill shirt and denims sauntering across a dusty corral. And don’t forget those nights at the honky-tonk, where cowboys lean against the bar under the flicker of neon signs, nursing cold beers and exchanging tall tales. We’d love to read your cowboy stories, ones with LGBTQI characters who’ll lasso our hearts and leave us wanting to hit that lonesome trail. Serials and series are welcome. 10-100,000 words in length. Series and serials welcomed.

Spies

From a rainy side street in Paris to a snow-covered park bench in Moscow, spies can be found in the most innocuous of places, whether they’re on the run from an old, familiar enemy, or on the hunt for a killer. We want you to take us into that dangerous world of shadows and secrets, where a stranger on a Berlin tram can be either an ally or enemy, where deadly games are played in smoke-filled backstreet bars and hidden rooms. We’re looking for stories of 10-100,000 words in length. Series and serials are also welcome.

Thriller/Crime

Who doesn't love a gripping thriller or crime novel? Take us on a roller-coaster ride, where gunmen lurk in rainy alleys and police tape marks the scene of an horrific crime. Whether your LGBTQI protagonist is a dogged, world-weary detective or an innocent caught up in a whirlwind of terrifying events, as long as we're hooked by the story, it doesn't matter. It doesn't have to be romance, just grab us by the collar and keep us turning the pages. 10-100k. Series and serials welcomed.

Spaced Out

There’s a great big universe out there, and we’d love to read about the brave souls who venture to the stars, whether it’s in a rickety old piece of space junk, or a sleek cruiser. We want to explore with them as when they set foot on Mars, or steer toward a black hole. What we’re looking for is the human experience. How does it feel to be suspended in a starless void? To search for life where there is none? Write about the aliens and the LGBTQI characters who search for them. Romance with or without erotic content is fine.
Word count 10-100k. Series and serials are also welcomed.
