Call for Gay Stories: Unmasked & Undressed (Starbooks Press)

Post date: 02 June 2011
Deadline: 30 September 2011

Look up in the sky, heading for your bedroom window! Yes, those fabulous caped heroes from Unmasked and Unmasked II are coming back, and we want more heroes to add to our fantasi3s!

Once again, STARbooks Press is putting together a collection of h0t, fun, s3xy stories about superheroes, their sidekicks, and their fans. What made Unmasked STARbooks Press best-seller of all time were the great characters, st3amy s3x, and humor! Surely, you have a superhero whose story you want to tell.

Keep in mind: Every superhero has at least one special ability and one secret weakness. Use these to your advantage. If you contributed to Unmasked or Unmasked II, or both, let’s see a sequel!

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 eric@starbookspress.com.

Submit your query to eric@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!
