Call for Gay Stories: Black Dungeon Masters (Starbooks Press)

Post date: 02 June 2011
Deadline: 30 November 2011

There are those who need to explore their deepest, darkest, submissiv3 fantasi3s and those willing to play along!

What is s3xier that a muscular black man dressed up in leather, holding a whip? What is h0tter than that same man making you his submissiv3? Imagine being kidnapped and strapp3d to a sling or shackled to an iron cross and having to succumb to the d3sires of a Black Dungeon Master? You may deny having these thoughts, but we know you’ve spent many a h0t, sw3aty night fan+asizing about just such a scene.

Now, the time has come for you to share those fantasi3s with the rest of us, and there are no limits to where you will take your readers. We just ask that the play be cons3nsual. This is not about real acts of vi0lence and vi0lations by psych0paths but the playing out of fantasi3s by those who know what they are doing and do it very well.

Please note: Keep the ghetto in the ghetto. If you submit a story with illiterate dialogue and characters from the projects, I will reject them without a reply.

Your characters need to be at least 18 years old.

We are seeking well-written stories that are er0tic, not just p0rnographic. There are no limits to the possibilities or scenarios. All we ask is that writers be creative, have fun, and offer our readers something fresh and new. And humor is always greatly appreciated! We want well-developed characters and plots, believable and accurate situations (even if it is fantasy or science fiction, it must make sense), and settings, along with internal consistency. All characters must be at least 18 years of age. Please use lub3 and not spit.

Feel free to query me about the idea you may have about a story for this anthology at marcus@starbookspress.com.

Submit your query to marcus@starbookspress.com in the body of an email. Include a short bio, your name, postal and email addresses, the title and a five-paragraph excerpt of your story. Indicate whether or not your submission has been previously published and, if so, where and when. You don't need to sell your story in the letter; your work will speak for itself. If your query is accepted, we will be in contact with you about submitting the complete work. The end product should be around eight pages of single spaced 12 pt. type. Occasionally, novellas are accepted, but they must be exceptional. Be sure to edit and proof your query.

Sloppy or poorly written stories will not be considered, replied to, or acknowledged!
