Call for Gay Fiction: The Color Sexy Anthology (Starbooks Press)

Post date: 14 April 2012
Deadline: 30 June 2012


Edited by Marcus Anthony

Every feeling has a color. What color is s3xy? What makes a man s3xy? Have you seen the color s3xy? Does a particular man make you see the color s3xy? This is a broad theme, so you have a lot you can do. Your characters need to be at least 18 years old.

We are seeking well-written stories that are er0tic. 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 lube and not spit.

Submit your query 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!

Please read the complete guidelines here before submitting >>
