OPEN SUBMISSION CALLS

Going Home

There are times when life can take an unexpected turn and you may find yourself going back to where it all started. Swapping the heady excitement of city life for a quiet backwater can definitely be a shock. But, sometimes, we can find happiness in the places we least expect—that peaceful little village nestled among green and pleasant hills, that small town where everyone knows your business. We want to escape with your stories about going home. We’re looking for manuscripts with LGBTQ characters between 10-100k in length. Series and serials are also welcome.

Paranormal

Some events or phenomena are beyond the scope of our understanding. We’re often drawn to the unknown, to ghosts and vampires, to things we can’t explain with logic or reason. The paranormal world is rich with stories, of hauntings, of visions, of nightmares. We’d love for you to bring those stories to life for us. Let us take a glimpse beyond the veil. 10-100,000 words in length. Series and serials welcomed.

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.

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.
